I shared an email with a friend recently. It was a quote from Charles Swindoll about Attitude Determining Altitude.
I was trying to share “HOPE”…
He replied with brief thanks for the encouragement……. … and then he went right on to share a link to a HORRIBLE VIDEO NEWS REPORT about how the economy is going to get worse before it gets better.
Now don’t get me wrong when I say this video news report is HORRIBLE. It is actually well done, and probably accurate. But it is so discouraging when such a HORRIBLE SET OF PREDICTIONS are made by some news pundit (currently playing on yahoo finance page).
SO MY QUESTION FOR YOU TODAY is - WHAT (or WHO) ARE YOU GOING TO BELIEVE?
I serve a risen savior, have access to the self same power that raised him from the dead, command an army of angels, and cannot be overcome. I believe the author/creator of it ALL who said darkness cannot overcome light.
I encourage you to turn the news off and create your own future - independent of the herd!
OK… OK… Reality does have to be dealt with. I know… But only by “EARTH PEOPLE” : )
Those of us who are spiritual can walk on water, part the red sea, feed thousands with little, and otherwise “bind and loose” with help from our Father in Heaven. If you don’t know what this power is, “to bind and loose” then search an online bible or get your butt to a church that lives it and JOIN IN!
So… Soldier… (In my best General Patton Voice) It’s time to get up, out of that bunker, and charge straight into the face of the enemy - just to prove it can be done.
This enemy might be called the NIGHTLY NEWS, or BAD NEWS (AKA “Troubling Spirits” in OT Lexicon). IT’S TIME TO TAKE SOME GROUND FOR THE KINGDOM, AND SHOW THE WORLD AND THE ENEMY THAT WE CAN DO WHAT MERE MORTALS CANNOT!
When we go forward with hope, that shines a light into a dark place. People will want to know what drives us… That’s when we can share a testimony with great result!
When it’s over, and the day is done, and you have accomplished your miracle… Share - Teach - Show the WAY : )
Oh, yeah… LEST WE FORGET - Each day is new, so…. you get to win, and accomplish miracles, and share, teach, show the way - EVERY DAY : )
PS - I just did my part….. NOW IT’S YOUR TURN : )

It’s so easy to make New Year’s resolutions, and change our physical behavior by sheer will power. But easy change is rarely lasting change. A Typical New Years resolution lasts less than 10 days.
A BETTER WAY
A better way is to invite God to make the change in our heart first…
May the meditations of my heart produce words from my mouth and behaviors in my body which bring honor and glory to you, Oh Lord!
Because our feelings and behaviors start in our thought life ~ I invite Christ to reign in my thought life.
As it is said, “Thoughts become things. Choose the good ones!”.
Oh - yes , we can keep behaving badly, and keep leaning on forgiveness… But these choices will not help us grow into the powerful spiritual beings we are designed to be. We were made to bind and loose spirits, walk on water, claim the promised land, call the dead back to life.
Oh let us grow into our spiritual DNA!
Let us GROW in 2009 by inviting Christ to govern our thought life. (Take every thought captive)

America needs prayer. The economy is in worse shape than most realize. Our president elect says it’s worse than we thought. He plans on creating millions of jobs in a WPA type program. That’s a good idea - but not enough…
American needs prayer. Our sons and daughters are giving their lives for a war we don’t support at home.
America needs prayer. We have little faith in our elected officials, as they clutter meaningful legislation with money for friends and trade favors instead of governing.
America needs prayer. Poverty is growing, people are losing their homes, and good people are starving.
America needs prayer. Homes provided to house victims of natural disasters are taken away before homes are built.
America needs prayer. We are assaulting our teachers, and falling behind the world educationally.
America needs prayer. We are killing our wives, children, brothers, sisters, parents, grandparents.
America needs prayer. We may have gained the whole world but lost a soul in the bargain.
What to do? BELIEVE in the power of God to overcome the world.
The powerful and effective prayers of a righteous man availeth much!
A little tiny bit of goodness wants to come into the world at Christmas.
If you make just a little room for hope, possibility, and miracles - then the baby Jesus, the spirit of Life, Truth, and Love can grow into a powerful force. Welcome him! Make a fresh start! Let the cure for America start with you!
America needs prayer… Not just any prayer - but the prayer of the righteous.
We are made righteous by the gift of Christ. Celebrate this and we are already celebrating the turnaround!
