Let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ. Phil 1:27 Continue reading
I recalled last time how I felt the Holy Spirit leading me to sing with a couple and I didn’t!
That seems to be one of the great characteristics of the Holy Spirit – to lead you.
He’s not only going to lead you to do something positive but to also lead you to do something that seems negative.
They were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. Acts 16:6
I can never emphasis enough that the Holy Spirit is not going to lead you to do drugs or lead you into multiple failed relationships and marriages.
This may cause some discontent but the Holy Spirit is not going to lead you to divorce since the Bible is clear that
the Lord God of Israel says that He hates divorce, Mal 2:16
But that’s not the purpose of today.
The Holy Spirit forbade the early evangelists from going into Asia, thus sending them more towards Europe.
So in reality this wasn’t a negative movement – it is a positive leading of the Holy Spirit to send the Gospel towards the heart of the Roman Empire, at that time.
Dallas Holm had a song years ago that was called Look for a Window.
The lyrics said:
Hot on the trail of God’s will
And getting warmer still
Got it together this time around
There’s nothing to stop you now
Stopped by the slam of a door
God, what’d You do that for
Sometimes we just don’t understand
How He wants to let us in
When God closes a door, look for a window
Oh look for a window
Don’t stand at the door, there might be a window
Oh look for a window
And so do our pathways
One way God shows which way to go
Is to let the old road close
There’s no point in getting down on yourself
God is only point you somewhere else
Please open yourself to allowing the Holy Spirit to lead on what to do today and what not to do today!
Abba, lead me in all ways. In Jesus name, YES&AMEN

Jesus never ran anywhere so if you are running everywhere you are not modeling Jesus.
I read that in my radio show prep for today. It stopped me in my tracks and made me think.
I am one of those people that rush around trying to get it all done. I have always done things quickly but I try to be efficient. Continue reading
I’ve thought about the birthday’s that I can remember throughout my lifetime.
I can remember the 50th and the 40th pretty easily.
The 18th and the 21st were milestones. Continue reading
“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” Jer 1:5
Thinking way back, I never really thought that God had some purpose for me – though I do now!
I’ve always believed in God but did not accept the forgiveness offered by Jesus until I was almost 18 years old. Continue reading
