#022 Illogical Instructions Part 3: Receiving Healing

Announcements:  Reminder: My bible study, “Journey to Purpose”, is available at Barnes & Noble, Amazon (print and e-format), Xulon Press, and other Christian bookstores. If you missed the E-launch feel free to watch the previously recorded Facebook Live sessions.

This is the third installment of our four-part series on “illogical instructions”. We have come to understand the role trust plays in our relationship with God. If you missed Part 2, click the link at the end of this post. The important part that bears repeating is that trusting God means that we submit to God’s plan by laying aside conventional wisdom, knowledge, experiences, and even past works of God to realize that God is doing a new thing, moving in a different way in our lives, or preparing us for a miracle. Sometimes, God will give us an illogical instruction that is outside of our knowledge, ability, wisdom, or experience. So far, we have seen how God builds our trust in Him through illogical instructions while in the midst of a battle and a move of God.

#21 Illogical Instructions Part 2: Noah – A move of God

Announcements:  Reminder: My bible study, “Journey to Purpose”, is available at Barnes & Noble, Amazon (print and e-format), Xulon Press, and other Christian bookstores. If you missed the E-launch feel free to watch the previously recorded Facebook Live sessions.

This is the second in our four-part series on “illogical instructions”. Last week, we talked about the role that trust plays in our relationship with God. If you missed that post, click the link at the end of this post. The important part that bears repeating is that trusting God means that we submit to God’s plan by laying aside conventional wisdom, knowledge, experiences, and even past works of God to realize that God is doing a new thing or moving in a different way in our lives. Sometimes, God will give us an illogical instruction that is outside of our knowledge, wisdom, ability, or experience. Recall that God builds our trust in Him by giving us an illogical instruction while in the midst of a trying situation like sickness, lack, a move of God, or a battle. Since illogical instructions are a part of our Christian development, we need to understand when, why, and to what end God gives us illogical instructions. A thoughtful understanding of illogical instructions will help us accept the illogical instructions we receive while on our journey to or while fulfilling purpose. We will continue our review of instances where God gives an illogical instruction, discover areas of increased trust, and note how God uses circumstance and our obedience to an illogical instruction to bring about a move of God and fulfill His purpose and plan.

#013 Journey to Purpose: Ordered Steps

I’m back! I know I have been away for quite some time now but if you will stay tuned over the next few weeks, I will fill you in on where I’ve been and what I’m doing now. It is going to be so exciting. I’m excited about what God is doing and I can’t wait to see what’s next. I sense a huge break is on the horizon for me and for you too. One of my goals today is to encourage my listeners that God is ordering our steps toward purpose. Sometimes we can endure difficult times and experience delays, rejections, denials, and silent treatments, which make us feel forgotten. Please know you are not forgotten and God will not disappoint. He may be quiet but I assure you he is up to something and it’s going to be grand. Continue reading
