UK Decision Points to Dissatisfaction


A historic day has come to the  United Kingdom, as the vote to leave the European Union  passed. Humanity’s dissatisfaction with earthly government is creating a climate of change all over the world. I pray the United Kingdom, the United States, the Arab world, and all points in between will turn to the one in whom “the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).

Scriptures and Quotes

Here are some Scriptures and quotes working on me this week . . .

“Just as sin becomes habitual, so holy living can become habitual…just as sin numbs the spirit to the things of God, so obedience opens the spirit to God’s transforming power.”
– The Renovare “Life with God” Bible

Don’t stifle the Spirit.
Don’t despise prophecies,
but test all things.
Hold on to what is good. – 
1 Thessalonians 5:19-20 (HCSB)

There is a place in God’s heart with your name. No one can take your place. He is keeping it for you. No anxiety. No competition. (paraphrase from Gary Best teaching)

And Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.” – 1 Kings 18:21 (ESV)



Think Long

We want to see fruit right now, but we have to trust God’s timing. “Solomon began to build the temple for the Lord in the 480th year after the Israelites came out of the land of Egypt (1 Kings 6:1).” The fruit we see today is the result of other’s actions in past decades and centuries. God may be using us today, to set up His work hundreds of year from now. Think long.

The Miracle of the 6 Day War

A modern day miracle culminated 49 years ago today. On June 10, 1967, the Six-Day War ended, as young and tiny Israel defeated the armies of the Arab world, and claimed Jerusalem.

Though I hate war, sometimes it is necessary in response to aggression. This occurrence demonstrates God’s plan to keep His covenant, and preserve His people. The thriving of Israel today is a sign to you about the promises of God for all His people.
