  1. So here’s a question or actually, really more just a thought / concern……

    God’s promise to us is that we will never face more than we are able to handle or as He also promises, we can do all things in Him who gives us strength so why are so many Christians so overwhelmed, so weary, so exhausted, weak and tired?

    He promises us that in Him, we will produce spiritual fruit, why are so many Christians feeling fruitless?

    He promises us that He shall indeed be found by us if we seek Him, why then are so many Christians voicing that they can’t find Him?

    He promises us that even before we utter a word He hears our prayers and gives answer yet we hear Christians say that God is silent and is not answering.

    He promises us that He will fill us with His peace so why are so many Christians filled with unrest and uncertainty?

    We know without a doubt as Christ followers that God’s Word is true. He is faithful and He holds true to all of His promises all of the time!

    So, the question, thought or concern is………

    LORD, give us ears to hear, eyes that see, minds that can comprehend, hearts that receive You and know You as You desire and lives that truly live for for You and Your Kingdom purposes.

  2. Thanks for shedding some light on the passage in Exodus where repeatedly it says “God hardened Pharoah’s heart”. I found this statement very puzzling, but think I understand a little better now. If we close our minds/hearts to God’s Word, He allows us to remain in that state…..I guess that’s the free will we were created with.

  3. I recently led the LDN group on the subject of the Holy Spirit. The following are some of the questions that they asked. I hope to answer them in the coming weeks:
    1. Is the baptism of the Holy Spirit a second blessing, or the initial receiving of the Holy Spirit?
    2. Should we not desire more spiritual gifts (based on 1 Corinthians 14)?
    3. What is the difference between spiritual gifts and abilities?
    4. Is speaking in other languages (tongues) different than speaking in a heavenly language?
    5. Why do we not see the same kind of evidence of the Spirit as we do in the book of Acts?
    6. What prevents us from experiencing the fullness of the Spirit?
    7. Are the miracles we see performed by televangelists from God?
    8. Does the Spirit enter us when we are baptized with water?
    9. Can the Holy Spirit leave us after we receive Him?
    10. What about the crazy stuff attributed to the Holy Spirit?
    11. Why are some people open to the Spirit, and others so afraid?
