I am studying I and II Chronicles. I hope you enjoy me sharing with you what I am learning about The Steps to Holiness.

In this world today, we have no time to waste. We need to be getting ready for the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We not only need to be sharing God’s word with the world, but letting them see God in us. IIChronicles 19:2-3, “And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, (Jehosphaphat) and said to King Jehospaphat. “Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the Lord? Therefore the wrath of the Lord is upon you. Nevertheless good things are found in you, in that you have removed the wooden images from the land, and have prepared your heart to seek God.”

Steps to Holiness require that we guard our associations. We must be careful not only to shun unrighteousness and worldliness ourselves, but not to support or participate with others who promote it. Be careful not to promote the ungodly or to support those whose ways contradict the Scriptures and thus displease the Lord. Avoid evil ethic of expediency. Do not employ procedures or practices you suspect of being unethical or ungodly, even if they promise success.

II Chronicles 1: 10-12, “Now give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people; for who can judge this great people of Yours?” Then God said to Solomon: “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked riches or wealth or honor or the life of your enemies, not have you asked long life, but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may judge My people over who I have made you king, wisdom and knowledge are granted to you; and I will give you riches and wealth and honor, such as none of the kings have had who were before you, nor shall any after you have the like.”

Steps to Dynamic Devotion is in those whose hearts are fully devoted to God. Scripture maintains a consistent testimony that those whose hearts are devoted to God are blessed by Him. Partial devotion to God, lukewarmness, inevitably results in spiritual mediocrity and sporadic communion with the Lord. Be confident that God honors those who depend upon His wisdom to carry out the work He has assigned them. Be confident that if you seek God with all your heart and soul, He will surety be found by you. Maintain a heart that is fully committed to the Lord. Know that the Lord seeks out such to strengthen them and prosper their works.

Revelations 2: 2 – 5

2 I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. 3 You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.

4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. 5 Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lamp stand from its place.

Isaiah 40:

28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

Have you ever felt like Eeyore. You know the little gray patched up donkey in the

Winnie the Pooh series. They lived in a beautiful 100 acre woods.

Eeyore use to say, “Is my tail still on?” Then he would say, “let’s have a look,

and he turned slowly round to the place where his tail had been a little while ago, and then, finding that he couldn’t catch it up, he turned round the other way, until he came back to where he was at first, and then he put his head down and looked between his front legs, and at last he said, with a long, sad sigh, “I believe you’re right, Pooh, it is still there.”

Sometimes I feel the same way, I feel I have lost my tail, and cannot find it. I think that we sometimes go to that 100 acre woods, to a place that Eeyore called his gloomy place.

Even though Eeyore had great compassion for others, and was always trying to help people, he still at times felt, Oh, poor me. See, he lost his love for life. He some how lost the sense of a positive attitude. His fire had gone out.

In our lives we all, at times, may think, I am burned out, woe is me. We still truck along trying to do our best, but we have to continually put patches on our lives just to hold us together.

See, God speaks of this very thing in Revelation chapter two. He tells the church at Ephesus, that He knows all their good deeds, but He is getting a little disappointed in them, because they have lost their first love. “Him.”

Again, I myself sometimes feel tired, even though I keep getting up from being knock down, that my first love is getting depleted from my life. I need to get that fire back, the fire that helps build my faith up. Yes, that is when I need to get down on my knees and look up to God and find my tail.

God promises to give strength to the weary, and I tell you now, I have to stand on that promise.

So, if today, you are feeling like Eeyore, and you have lost your tail, and are sitting in your gloomy place look up to the Heavenly Father.

Yes, get back on your knees, and look up to God and say, “I think you are right God, I still have it together.”

In others words, you may have to be like Eeyore, turn around, check things out, and see if you may have to let some things go that maybe clouding up your way. The way God wants you to go. You may as Eeyore, have to get in a downward position on your knees, so God can show you that your tail is still on and your headed in just the way He wants you to go.

You just need to turn around and follow God.

Just like Eeyore, you can choose to be sad, gloomy, and Oh, me.

But, with God’s Help, I would prefer  smile and share my life and the life of God with the world.


How about YOU?

Abiding in God

Abiding in God

The devotion today, is on (John 15:7). It says, ” If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”

I have heard so many ministers argue over the meaning of this verse, using the name it and claim it idea as an excuse to not stand on God’s word, but it should be plain and simple.  First, God’s word is God’s word; Infallible and strong.

I believe if you are living in obedience to God, what you want for your life and your families lifes will be exactly what God wants for you.  Why?  Because if you lived in perfect obedience to God, as did Christ, God would answer all your prayers, as He always did His sons. But if you are living in disobedience to God, your will is not God’s will. Therefore, what you want for your life will be out of God’s will.

Even in the Garden of Gesemene, Jesus knew God’s will for His life was to die on a cross. He did ask that the cup be passed from Him, but He knew it would not. Why? Because He was living a life of total obedience to God.(John 11:41 – 42) says, in the words of Jesus, “Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I know that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.” Did you get the part when Jesus said, “And I know that thou hearest me always” So when you ask God in faith, living a Godly life, the promise is “ask what ye will.”

This plainly teaches that answered prayer is up to the child of God as to what he wants. This is in perfect harmony with promises of both testaments.  A true Christian can get what he wants, as well as what he needs.  A prayer saying, “If it be Thy will concerning anything God has already promised, and therefore has already made it clear that it is His will, providing we ask in faith, nothing wavering, is really a prayer of unbelief.  It is like saying, “I know You have already promised and you have made it very clear by Your Word that it is Your will, but do You really mean what You say?  Are You a truthful God or not?  Can we depend upon what You say?

We insult God by constantly questioning His will that is already revealed by His word.  It is no less insulting to Him than it would be to a human friend who had promised something and we continued to question him about his will in the matter.  He would finally say to us, “What is the matter with you?  Have I not told you repeatedly that I would do it?  Can you not take me at my word?  Are you going to make me a liar?”  We would not dare do this to any earthly friend. Then why do it to our heavenly Father who promises that He will do more for His children than any earthly parent.

Read your bible daily and pray. Stay in daily communion with God. Listen to His voice, and know that He loves you and wants the best for you, His child.

God Is Always Waiting

God Is Always Waiting.

God is always waiting for us to believe and rely on Him. When we  know that God is our help in the time of trouble and He is there in our times of joy, then we will know without a doubt that we have a personal relationship with God.  That He is our friend and we have a intimate relationship with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and we can say that “Jesus is Lord” of our lives.

We need to have a personal relationship with Jesus.  Satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy.  One of his main things is to put fear in our hearts.  When he can accomplish this, then our faith is weakened.

Read the following and help build your faith up this week.

1.God Is…The Almighty, Genesis 35:11, “Nobody and nothing is mightier than God!”

2. God Is… Our Redeemer,  Psalm 19:14,
“We belong to God. He has redeemed us and we are now God’s property!”

3. God Is…Our Deliverer, Psalm 40:17,
“God comes to deliver us from everything the devil tries to put on us, or put in us, or take out of us, or take off us!”

4.God Is…Our Fortress, Psalm 91:2,
“God is our refuge in times of life’s storms.”

5. God Is… Our Healer, Exodus 15:26,
“God wants to heal our whole  being, spirit, mind, body, relationships, finances, our entire self.”

6. God Is… A Banner Over Us, Solomon 2:4,
“God’s love is a protective covering for our lives.”

7. God Is… Our Savior, I John 4:14,
“Jesus came to save us from the penalty of our sins.”

8. God Is… Counselor and Comforter…John 14:16-18,
“God will guide us in the way we should go, and we can take great comfort in knowing He will never leave us nor forsake us.”

Commit the Word of God to your memory. Commit all the names that the His word calls Him. It will help strengthen your faith.

We all need our faith strengthen.  When faith abounds fear is gone.  Committing His word to your heart will help you in trouble.  Fear will have to flee.

Someone once said, “When fear knocked at the door, faith answered and said, “There is no one home.”

If you are gripped  by fear today, or any day say this aloud.

I am going put myself into the flow of God where the Word of God and the power of God are merged together. Praise God!

Have a wonderful week.  See ya tomorrow for another cup of coffee in the Lord.

Blessing, Love and Prayers,

Pastor Pat
