Happy Eve of New Years Eve Everyone!
Had a phenomenal day yesterday! God I love my family! We went ice skating in Charlottesville and had an amazing time. Coree played tag with these two little professional skater kids. At least they seemed professional! These kids were amazing… and Coree humored them so well! It warmed my heart to see the smiles Coree put on their faces as he gave it everything he had and 20 plus minutes to tag them back. I pray that your holidays are still going well. Even if you are back to work, take time each day to make life FUN!
This morning I read something about faith that cranked me up! Jesus called his 12 disciples together and he gave them spiritual authority. With this authority, Jesus sent the 12 out 2 by 2. He told them to go through the region with this spiritual authority… to heal the sick and rescue people from the control of demons! What an EXCITING mission! It’s the very same mission Jesus gave to the church and still available to each of us today!
What’s cool about this rescue mission… is that Jesus sent them out with NOTHING except their FAITH! Here’s exactly what Jesus said to his 12 disciples…
“He (Jesus) told them to take nothing with them, except a walking stick-no food, no travelers bag, no money. He told them to wear sandals but not to take even an extra coat.”
Yesterday, I mentioned how political correctness has stolen away the influence of our voice. Today, I’m suggesting that we go back to our roots and pick up the FAITH that our forefathers used to MOVE MIGHTY MOUNTAINS and do impossible things! Mountains will still move and miracles will still happen… for the man or woman who FULLY RELIES on Jesus for everything!
God will provide… he will protect… he will give us great success, when we BELIEVE for it. Maybe we should try to live more like Jesus told his disciples to live when he sent them on this rescue mission. Certainly, we must do the natural things… like work hard, and dedicate an balanced portion of our attention to the 9 equities of our lives. I’m just wondering how much better things would go for us if we demonstrated similar faith. Could we get the same results if we placed far more emphasis on the part of our success that God brings to the table?
Have another super day my friends! God bless you all! Chat with you tomorrow!
