Living Waters Flow from Thankful Hearts

Posted Feb 3rd 2008, 10:26 by COMPASS: Looking Unto Jesus on Christian Living


God's
grace in our lives is a continual work with intent and purpose, and it involves
the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit day by day. When the Lord saved us by
His Blood, He did so with the intent of sanctifying
our daily lives...setting them apart
for His Holy use in this wicked world in which we presently live.
Our God is never stagnant. His
movement never ceases. The Holy Spirit
never ceases to run or flow...just like water...washing, cleansing, preparing
us for life in the Spirit...walking...

Choices Are the Pivot of Change

Posted Jan 17th 2008, 01:14 by COMPASS: Looking Unto Jesus on Christian Living


A little over a year ago, the Lord spoke a very serious word to me concerning stagnancy .  He enabled me to see a situation for what it was:  not flowing or running;  stale, or foul, from standing, as a pool of water;  inactive, sluggish. and dammed up! 
Anything - be it a life, a job, an institution, a project, a relationship - that becomes stale or foul from standing....has stopped developing or progressing properly.  It becomes sluggish or dull...

New Things Are the Norm in God's Kingdom

Posted Jan 14th 2008, 09:22 by COMPASS: Looking Unto Jesus on Christian Living


NEW THINGS are the NORM in God's Kingdom!  Think with me on what He says in His Word of NEW THINGS....
 
....we find that His compassions and mercies fail not, and they are NEW every morning!
....we are to put NEW wine into NEW wineskins!
....He have given to us a NEW commandment!
....He is the Provider of a NEW covenant!
....He calls those who receive it a NEW man and a NEW creation!
....He asks us to sing a NEW song!
....We are living in a NEW day...

O Come Let Us Adore HIM!

"Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother, Mary, was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph, her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example was minded to put her away secretly. but while he thought about these things, behold, and angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, 'Joseph, son of David, do not...

Tapestry of Connections: Part 3

Posted Dec 9th 2007, 11:12 by COMPASS: Looking Unto Jesus on Christian Living


The choice Eve made in the garden revealed a deeper mistake than partaking of fruit from the wrong tree. What she literally did was choose to act independently from God! It was a "willful and deliberate"
choice, one in which she ignored God's wisdom. This was not just a preference of one fruit over another. Such action demonstrated that she chose to control her individual life choices rather than allow the One who created her to do so. In practice...she 
dis-connected...

Tapestry of Connections: Part 1

Posted Dec 4th 2007, 12:20 by COMPASS: Looking Unto Jesus on Christian Living


TAPESTRY: a fabric consisting of a warp of foundational threads upon which other colored threads are woven by hand to produce a reversible pictorial design.  The design often tells or depicts a "story". 
God is a God of beginnings and a God of endings. He is God of everything in between. He has the first word on everything; He has the last word on everything; for
"in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God." John...

Tapestry of Connections: Part 2

Posted Dec 4th 2007, 09:07 by COMPASS: Looking Unto Jesus on Christian Living


In the Tapestry of Connections, God continued to reveal Himself to the heart of man and woman. He had unbroken fellowship with them for an unspecified length of time. They were CONNECTED and in union one with another. Heaven and earth were "joined". Truth and Reality CONNECTED and came together. Things were as they should be, and God saw that it was good. It was
VERY GOOD! Genesis 1:31 For a design to be woven into a tapestry, there must...

Look at Me and LIVE!

"I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you LIFE and DEATH, blessing and cursing; therefore CHOOSE LIFE, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His Voice, and that you may cling to Him, for HE IS YOUR LIFE and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers,...

Looking Unto Jesus Still Defeats the Enemy

Posted Nov 15th 2007, 12:31 by COMPASS: Looking Unto Jesus on Christian Living


When we first encounter God realizing that He exists and that through Jesus we come to know God as Sovereign, we begin by learning facts "about" Him. We find in the scriptures many references to His attributes and characteristics. At that point in our development, we are still sinful, broken, self-centered, fearful, "in-control-of-ourselves" beings. God is still, to most in those early stages of growth, an "impersonal Being" we are just beginning to know. And if we do have any idea...

Cartoons! Animation! Action Movies! Reality TV!

"Cartoons of explosions!  Excitable Animation!  Action Movies!  Reality TV!  Ridiculous challenges to tolerate higher and greater levels of fear and confusion!   Scenes that pump the adrenalin causing an adrenalin rush addiction to such things!  De-sensitization to evil in all its forms! The deception has come in.   It is taking root in the soul of my people and their hearts and minds are deceived and overcome with such addicting scenes!

Go with HIS FLOW!

God is opening new doors in and through my life for the "plans" only He can unfold...as He has closed some, also.  He is ever flowing and there is no stagnancy where He abides! What excitement to "Go with His Flow!"
 He who created heaven and earth has a Master Plan.
"I know the plans, I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future....

Flow Speak!

Online blogging has become an intersting opportunity for me. What a way to reach to a multitude!  Jesus did that from a mountain top, with no microphone...but His message always brought LIFE; and those who listened and received it, began to FLOW in good things for themselves.  It had a trickle down effect...cause others drank of it, also.
He who created us, formed us, breathed LIFE into us and said LIVE...knows best what we are all about!  He wants...
