Who Is Your God?

April 24, 2017 — Leave a comment

Many of you may already know the Savior, Jesus Christ, while others of you may be seeking Him. For some of you, these may be the first words you are hearing about the One True God.  Hear this. Wherever you are in your quest to know God, Debra and I are praying for you.

Recently I heard a testimony about a woman who talked about “her idol.” It brought this scripture to mind.

Habakkuk 2:18-20 (NIV) 18 “Of what value is an idol carved by a craftsman? Or an image that teaches lies? For the one who makes it trusts in his own creation; he makes idols that cannot speak. 19 Woe to him who says to wood, ‘Come to life!’ Or to lifeless stone, ‘Wake up!’ Can it give guidance? It is covered with gold and silver; there is no breath in it.” 20 The LORD is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him.

Love Heart, these are not my words.  They are taken from the Holy Bible.  Today, if you are counting on something made by man to give you guidance, whether it’s made of stone or wood or gold, please reconsider.  Seek God and find faith in Him and Him alone.  Gwen~

Quality Stone?

November 7, 2014 — Leave a comment

1 Kings 5:16-17, tells us of the building of the temples foundation.  The stones were huge and perfectly rectangle in shape.  Scripture says the stones were moved to the temple in a quiet manner out of respect for the Holy site.  The foundation was constructed of “quality stone.”

If your foundation isn’t strong everything else will fall beneath it.  “For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (ICorinthians 3:11, NIV) 

The need for a quality foundation is a lesson we must all take to heart.  What types of materials are we using?  Are we rebelling against God which causes a weak foundation or are we building on the integrity and stability of Christ Jesus?  “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain come down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it do not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.” (Matthew 7:24-25, NIV) 

Hearing, knowing and doing…If we aren’t doing then we aren’t building on the right foundation.  “But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.  The rain came down, the streams rose and the winds blew and beat against the house, and it fell with a great crash.” (Matthew 7:26-2,NIV)

Listen to the voice of authority, Christ Jesus and build that firm foundation!  Deb~
