Tuesday - All Peoples are Blessed Through Abraham - Genesis 22:15-18 -1/31/17

Abraham received abundant blessings because he obeyed God. First, God gave Abraham's descendants the ability to conquer their enemies. Second, God promised Abraham children & grandchildren who in turn the whole earth would be blessed. People's lives would be changed as a result of knowing Abraham & his descendants. Most often we think of blessings as gifts to be enjoyed. But when God blesses us, his blessings are intended to overflow to others.

2004/05 Moments of Peace in the Presence of God: Book Review

Book Review . Peace . Shalom . God . Elohim . Devotional . Talents . Pray . Gifts . Spiritual Gifts, Love, Hope, Happiness . LORD

You know the story, I reviewed this book while being a Baptist Editor/Host for a site around the end of 2004 or 2005.

Through inspiring psalms and meditations this devotional book invites you into the presence of God/Elohim , where the gift of peace/Shalom awaits. In its pages you can discover that God is nearer to you than you are to yourself.

Reflections of Love, Hope, & Happiness.

This is the best gift that you could give to yourself.

At sometime in your life you experience loneliness.
Loneliness is natural and should be appreciated rather than feared. In seasons of loneliness, you discover that you are never truly alone.

A Prayer
God, during those times when I feel the ache of loneliness, help me to remember that you are never more than a whispered prayer away. Amen.

Even when your mistakes are so devasting that you cannot return to the life you once knew, God's light can break through the clouds and splash spectacular color across your life.

In many ways, your life is as fragile as that tiny plant. Cold winds may blow over you, leaving you feeling withered and ruined. But then God shines his light on your life and you can blossom once more.

Past failures and disappointments can hover over you like leaden clouds, refusing to yield to the promise of sunlight and clear skies. When you find yourself surrounded by gray thoughts and gray feelings, it may seem difficult to dream of happier times. But there is great hope. When you find yourself in such a situation, God is there to help.

You should ask for his direction and pray for his guidance so you may use your gifts/Spiritual Gifts fruitfully.

Since this a 2004/2005 Review I did, I believe that that I received a complimentary copy from Bethany Publishing.

2/23/2014 .. Sermon ' Show time' I Kings 18

Elijah - King Ahab - Mt. Carmel … My pastor preached this on 2/23/14 in the morning service from I Kings 18 … sharing my notes

Angela Watkins's insight:
I Kings 18:36-39 … It’s Show Time


Every now & then the Church have to take on the Spirit of Elijah.


King Ahab had a wife named Jezebel.


God is going to do HIS own thing in HIS own time.


Sometimes we end up in a place called ‘there.’ Sometimes God will place you in circumstances where you have to trust HIM.


Sometimes we have to be still.


After Elijah & the widow woman squared things up. God says its not going to rain - it’s not going to rain.


Mt. Carmel

The Lord is getting ready to have a ‘Show Down.; Be ready to do what HE has assigned us to do. We need to know that God will make sense out of non-sense to us. God will tell you to use what HE show you to use.


King Ahab was a hard headed against Israel.


Sometimes we lose things because we are hard headed.


If God is God serve HIM, if baal is baal serve him. You can’t have it both ways.


I Kings 18:23,24: Show Down at Mt. Carmel


Get on the Lord’s side - Victory was won on Calvary Hill.


Even if you haven’t accepted God - HE still loves you, but hate your sin.


I Kings 18:32-35


Israel was in the middle of a drought - the Church is in the middle of the drought.


Elijah prayed to the Lord - in his prayer he knew what the Lord was getting ready to do.


We got to line up with what God’s Word says.


God shows up right on time.


A show down right here between good & evil. ………….
