Father and Founder of the Republic

AMONG the multitude who in different lands and times have won fame in varying degrees, a few stand out so distinct, so far above the rest, that they mark the eras of the world's progress. By them we measure our growth; by them we test our advance or decline. We no longer judge them, but rather judge ourselves by them, by the extent to which we can appreciate and understand them. An age in which they are honored is glorious; a generation by which they are not esteemed is contemptible. Among the few thus truly great is WASHINGTON.

The Disease That Will Destroy Your Destiny!

I want to share what the Lord has shown me concerning the "Disease That Will Destroy Your Destiny." That fatal disease is known as "Procrastination." I'll never forget the words of Mike Murdock, who said, "you'll never advance in the kingdom of God beyond your last act of disobedience." Procrastination is a form of disobedience and defines the difference between forgetful "hearers" and "doers" of the Word of God. This very blog post represents a milestone in my life, because I'm a professional procrastinator.

Love Never Fails

The Lord continues to amaze us as we recognize His hand in daily events in our lives and those around us. "Every time we pray, something happens." These are the words of Jim Moore, the director of the Salem House of Prayer. As we begin to approach our prayer life from this perspective, we'll attach more significant value to our times of prayer. We understand our God as the faithful Father, so we know time spent in His presence is never wasted. If we realized every time we pray, something happens, what would that do to our level of expectation.

Just Like in the Days of Noah

"Tell me once again, grandfather, about your father and how he walked with God." Young Noah loved to hear the stories of the old times from his grandfather Methuselah. He was eager to know every detail and his grandfather could paint an extremely vivid picture. Besides, the old man loved to revel in the young lad's desire for the knowledge that he was more than willing to share. Most of the youth, these days, didn't seem to care about times past. They were preoccupied with the present and how much enjoyment they could get out of life.

Fallen Comrade

A Momentary Lapse In Judgment Can Cause Lasting Consequences

I couldn't help but reflect upon the events that recently transpired, which brought me to this point. The honor guard had just finished folding the flag that was draped over the coffin of my CO. The flag was handed to me and I presented this triangular-shaped banner to the spouse of my fallen commanding officer. The flood of emotions that came over me at that moment were absolutely unbearable.

Thoughts On Spiritual Warfare

We need to be wise to the devices and tactics of the enemy or he will exploit our weaknesses.

If we know the "Word" of God (Holy Bible) we can't be outmaneuvered. An ancient warrior was fitted with armor, but he still had to know how to take full advantage of the protection it afforded. The devil will try to get us to battle on his own terms, like when he tempted Jesus in the desert. Jesus never deviated from the "Word" and He was victorious. Stick with the "Word" and don't war after the flesh (the weapons of our warfare are not carnal).
