    Yahweh said to Gideon, 'The people who are with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hand, lest Israel brag against me, saying, 'My own hand has saved me.' Now therefore proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, 'Whoever is fearful and trembling, let him return and depart fro...

    Hezekiah prospered in all his works. However concerning the ambassadors of the princes of Babylon, who sent to him to inquire of the wonder that was done in the land, God left him, to try him, that he might know all that was in his heart. 2 Chronicles 32:30 WEBWhile attending classes at a school, t...

    Now after the death of Moses the servant of Yahweh, Yahweh spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' servant, saying, 'Moses my servant is dead.

The Sphere

  • When the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, she obtained favor in his sight; and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. So Esther came near, and touched the top of the scepter. Then the king asked her, 'What would you like, queen Esther? What is your request? It shall be given you even to the half of the kingdom.' Esther 5:2 WEB

    After fasting for three days, Esther risked her life and entered the king's court uninvited. In those days, it was a death sentence to enter the inner court, and unless the king held out his golden scepter, she would be executed. The king spared her life and she approached him and made her request. Esther saved her people from destruction. It was a divine appointment, and Esther alone was in a position to do it. There was no one else that could even approach the king, much less have influence with him.

    We all have a sphere of influence around us. There are people that you have access to right now, that no one else does. God has put me into various places in order to see one person there saved. Sometimes it was working in a dark, hole in the wall place. At other times it was while playing music in a smoky bar. It is not always pleasant for us when we find ourself in a bad place, but it is the divine purpose that we need to focus on, the big picture.

    Remember that Paul led the jailor and his family to Jesus while in prison (Acts 16:30). It was not an accident that Paul was there. Later he was shipwrecked on the island of Malta and led many of them to Jesus (Acts 28). God's wind blew him right where he needed to be. God will still place His servants where they need to be today with them crying the whole time: 'Why is this happening?'

    I have not always been successful at it and would sometimes fall into murmuring and complaining about my circumstances. Instead of bringing inspiration to others, it brought confirmation to what they already believed: 'He is just another beaten down, powerless Christian.' Try and focus on the bright side, life is not an accident, and you are not where you are by chance.

    The sooner that you get in tune with God and get His job done, the sooner that you get to move on to the next stage. When you begin to lose sight of the big picture, zoom out, look around you and begin to see why God has placed you where you are. Our life is not an accident.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me get in tune with what You are doing here. Let me see my environment through Your eyes. Fill me with Your Spirit and give me a word in season for those around me. Help me see the big picture, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

I believe this! We might not ever know Gods work in our lives on this earth, But He knows what He is doing. I pray that I learn to trust in Him, in all of my circumstances.

Hum to read this a non Christain would be astounding!! Certainly they wouldn't! Some thing out side of you, placing you where you are?? think about it!! We have a world filled with those who don't!! Coming from hell after War, having know of Him through it certainly is a testemony!! I'm jess being open, real!! This teaching in itself realy puts the imagination too work!!  Us believers know the key to the Bible is a connection--to a power beyound Us!!

The nurse is asking Me what I'm taking-suppliments.. There astounded how My body has over come a killer disease I had!! Hum another place to hold Up God and His Spirit available too all!! Elements in situations-where He shines with out a doubt!! I've know all along, I'm a miracle too be alive in the first place, over My dilema!! Determination, no choice,His power presence, it just is!! Funny seeing a Socioligest this week also!! Funny having Faith as a child!!  Being driven by some thing!! To maintane the job I'm presently working is a miracle! I know so many good doers.. They think there so right dead on, and there totaly missing the true mark, walk in Him!! I see with out a doubt-Me experiences, testemony will indeed raise many eyebrows!! Many times I ask why-in amazing situations.. I hear lessons learned, He the only way I could have made it through!! I rejoice, operating out side any box!! Funny when we suffer, we know we're not alone!! Guess who gets the credit when it passes!! Amen.. jes sharing!! again I feel what ever opening up!! Hum glancing back at the teaching today, I certaing had much too share on it!!!  Praise God!!!!
