Today being today

Hebrews 3:15 "Today if you hear his voice, do not harden your heart."


"Do not worry about tomorrow, for Today has enough cares for itself."


"Therefore there is Now no condemnation For those who are in Christ Jesus."

God is the God of Now. Your redemption is ever present.

"He was, and is, and is to come."

"The Beast was, and is not, and yet to come."

The enemy wants you focused on everything except for Now, and Today. Both are Holy to God. By faith in Christ, Today and Now you have redemption, and Rest.

Satan's perseverance

It's amazing how Satan does not give up, after already losing. First, God is constantly turning what Satan meant for evil, into God's good. But, secondly, and more subtly is the truth that malice doesn’t abide anything, not even itself. Satan has no true allies; they are all slaves to malice. They have no hope.

But never underestimate him because he knows yours and my history, and he is vigilant in temptation and condemnation. That's what's astounding. The guy just never gives up.
Thank God for His Spirit, and Presence.

Regrets. I have had a few...

It's easy in the natural person to have regrets about the things I have done, and to get caught up in condemnation. But in the Spirit I realize that God, by faith, right now accepts me as I am, and if anything had been different, I might not even be alive right now. Now is the time to move forward.

What is your money worth?

It doesn't matter if you are worth a lot of money or make a great living. It doesn't matter if you have a minimum wage job or $100,000 in debt. When you die all of that adds up to a big fat ZERO. What are you doing to help someone's hope in eternity? What are you doing to help someone's hope now? If you aren't serving someone's spirit for God, you may die with nothing.

Don't die with nothing. Don't judge anybody else because when you do your own judgment is Now. As you judge others, the exact same judgment is on you. Serve God. Keep your eyes on the unseen things because that is what is eternal. Love one another because Christ lives for them just as He lives for you. Don't let Satan let you think you can judge because somebody doesn't seem successful, or even doubt their effort when you do not know what they are up to. You only know they are not where you are. Don't give Satan a stronghold by thinking you got it figured out.

Don't judge. You can never know what is going on in someone's heart and judging, you judge yourself and you die. Don't die but live!

What suffering?

The Spirit spoke today to me while reading Hebrews Chapter 12. No matter what I am going through, the perfect Man endured far more suffering than I have or ever will, and he did not even deserve it! My suffering can be directly attributed to the consequences of my own poor choices!

Then He ascended right on through this mess that is the world, making a mockery of it and those who think they are in charge, the deceivers who say i have no right to the grace of God and giving me power over sin and struggle. He sits at the right hand of the Father advocating for me at this very instant, against the charges of the enemy. Amen!

False humility

If your giving is out of "what can I give" instead of "what do they need," it is false humility, which is pride. Give to the needy, not because you need to give.
