Great Awakening

When God makes a big move, the entire earth responds. ALL of creation is subject to its Creator. Every time Moses went up to the mountain to meet with God there were earthquakes, storms, and whirlwinds. It is no different today. Before, during, and after God’s great workings, moves and shifts, the earth heats up, shakes and howls.

King Hezekiah

King Hezekiah loved and honored the LORD throughout his rule. And God blessed him abundantly. Even as Hezekiah aged and became arrogant (as did so many of the good kings), he repented and returned to God.

With Gusto!

We find ourselves in a similar situation — daughters and sons of a generation who has fallen away from God and forgotten Him. He is inviting us to return to Him, to remember His precepts and celebrate His salvation through Jesus Christ. Let’s do it! Let’s return to God together!! With gusto!!!

But some day they will be “raised in power… a spiritual body… of heaven.” We will be reunited with our physical bodies some day. Only then they will no longer be cursed and disintegrating. They will be perfect and glorified. How cool will that be?!

Shaggy

Meet Shaggy. When we first moved to our property, he greeted us in our front yard with nervous barking. When we tried to approach him, he skittishly ran away from us. We quickly realized he was homeless and starving. His hip bones visibly protruded beneath his matted fur. I began putting big bowls of dry dog food mixed with Alpo and dog treats out for him every day.

Praise Him!

God doesn’t instruct us to praise Him because He has some sort of egotistical need to be praised. He tells us to praise Him because of what it does to US. Praising God completes us and heals us. The Holy Spirit inhabits our PRAISE. It is where He LIVES and manifests Himself in our lives.
