When the Wind Blows

When the Wind Blows

Years ago, a farmer owned land along the Atlantic seacoast. He constantly advertised for hired hands. Most people were reluctant to work on farms along the Atlantic. They dreaded the awful storms that raged across the Atlantic, wreaking havoc on the buildings and crops. As the farmer interviewed applicants for the job, he received a steady stream of refusals. Finally, a short, thin man, well past middle age, approached the farmer. “Are you a good farm hand?” the farmer asked him. “Well, I can sleep when the wind blows,” answered the little man. Although puzzled by this answer, the farmer, desperate for help, hired him. The little man worked well around the farm, busy from dawn to dusk, and the farmer felt satisfied with the man’s work. Then one night the wind howled loudly in from offshore. Jumping out of bed, the farmer grabbed a lantern and rushed next door to the hired hand’s sleeping quarters. He shook the little man and yelled, “Get up! A storm is coming! Tie things down before they blow away!” The little man rolled over in bed and said firmly, “No sir. I told you, I can sleep when the wind blows.” Enraged by the response, the farmer was tempted to fire him on the spot. Instead, he hurried outside to prepare for the

The Conversation

The Conversation

The Conversation GOD: Angels, do you know what I was just thinking about? ANGELS: What were you thinking about? GOD: Christians seem to have forgotten what kind of power they have and the devil keeps on deceiving them! ANGELS: God, exactly what are you driving at? GOD: I have made my children in such a way that when the people of the world are sitting, they would be standing; when the world is standing, they will stand out; when the world stands out; my children must be outstanding, and when the devil dares the world to be outstanding, my people will be the standards to be used! JESUS CHRIST: They (Christians) are also forgetting the words in Ephesians 1:3. GOD: Please read it out! ANGEL: Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly places with every spiritual blessing in Christ. ANGEL: So what do we do now since the end is almost near? HOLY SPIRIT: My Presence is still among men and I will teach and remind the Christians of all that we have discussed. I will also make sure that they share the gospel of Jesus Christ everywhere they are! JESUS CHRIST: I will also keep on interceding for them and stand in for them even in their

He is the Great I Am

He is the Great I Am

He is the Great I Am He is the First and Last, the Beginning and the End! He is the keeper of Creation and the Creator of all! He is the Architect of the universe and the Manager of all times. He always was, He always is, and He always will be… Unmoved, Unchanged, Undefeated, and never Undone! He was bruised and brought healing! He was pierced and eased pain! He was persecuted and brought freedom! He was dead and brought life! He is risen and brings power! He reigns and brings Peace!

Herod couldn’t kill Him, The Pharisees couldn’t confuse Him, and The people couldn’t hold Him! Nero couldn’t crush Him, Hitler couldn’t silence Him, The New Age can’t replace Him, and Donahue can’t explain Him away! He is light, love, longevity, and Lord. He is goodness, Kindness, Gentleness, and God. He is Holy, Righteous, mighty, powerful, and pure. His ways are right, His word is eternal, His will is unchanging, and His mind is on me.

What is Faith?

What is Faith?

Faith is the belief that God is real and that God is good…it is a choice to believe that the One who made it all hasn’t left it all and that He still sends light into the shadows and responds to gestures of faith. Faith is belief that God will do what is right. God says that the more helpless your circumstances, the more likely your salvation. The greater your cares, the more genuine your prayers. The darker the room, the greater need for light. God’s help is near and always available, but it is only given to those who seek it. “Father, help us renew our commitment to You, to release everything and to be owned and possessed by You. We long to submit ourselves to You that we might know the Holy freedom available to us only through Your grace.” By Max Lucado Faith means being sure of the things we hope for and knowing that something is real even if we do not see it…it is by faith we understand that the whole world was made by God’s command so that what we see was made by something that cannot be seen…without faith no one can please God. Anyone who comes to God must believe that He is real and that He rewards those who truly find

That’s God

That’s God

Have you ever been just sitting there and all of a sudden you feel like doing something nice for someone you care for? That’s God talking to you through the Holy Spirit. Have you ever been down and out and nobody seems to be around for you to talk to? That’s God wanting you to talk to Him. Have you ever been thinking about somebody that you haven’t seen in a long time and then next thing you know you see them or receive a phone call from them? That’s God. There is no such thing as coincidence. Have you ever received something wonderful that you didn’t even ask for, like money in the mail, a debt that had mysteriously been cleared, or a coupon to a department store where you had just seen something you needed, but couldn’t afford? That’s God knowing the desires of your heart. Have you ever been in a situation and you had no clue how it was going to get better, how the hurting would stop, how the pain would ease, but now you look back on it. That’s God passing us through tribulation to see a brighter day. Meditation: We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks! For Your wondrous works declare that Your name is near. – Psalm 75:1 You

The LORD’s Baseball Team

The LORD’s Baseball Team

Freddy and the Lord stood by to observe a baseball game. The Lord’s team was playing Satan’s team. The Lord’s team was at bat, the score was tied zero to zero, and it was the bottom of the 9th inning with two outs. They continued to watch as a batter stepped up to the plate named ‘Love.’ Love swung at the first pitch and hit a single, because ‘Love never fails.’ The next batter was named Faith, who also got a single because Faith works with Love. The next batter up was named Godly Wisdom. Satan wound up and threw the first pitch. Godly Wisdom looked it over and let it pass: Ball one. Three more pitches and Godly Wisdom walked because he never swings at what Satan throws. The bases were now loaded. The Lord then turned to Freddy and told him He was now going to bring in His star player. Up to the plate stepped Grace. Freddy said, ‘He sure doesn’t look like much!’ Satan’s whole team relaxed when they saw Grace. Thinking he had won the game, Satan wound up and fired his first pitch. To the shock of everyone, Grace hit the ball harder than anyone had ever seen! But Satan was not worried; his centre fielder let very few get by. He went up
