    Make an ark of gopher wood. You shall make rooms in the ark, and shall seal it inside and outside with pitch. This is how you shall make it. The length of the ark will be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. Genesis 6:14 WEBNoah had a driving pass...

    Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They don't toil, neither do they spin, yet I tell you that even Solomon in all his glory was not dressed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today exists, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, won't he much more clot...

God Called to the Man

  • They heard Yahweh God's voice walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. Yahweh God called to the man, and said to him, 'Where are you?' Genesis 3:8 WEB

    Adam walked with God in the garden. Then after disobeying His command, Adam withdrew and tried to hide from Him. The serpent talked Eve into risking their relationship with God so that they could have the knowledge of 'Good and Evil.' Since they already had the knowledge of good, they only lacked the knowledge of evil. The call of the dark side overcame them. Immediately after they disobeyed, the enemy brought shame and fear on them in order to drive them even further away. Then he convinced them to hide from the presence of God.

    I find it comforting that the Almighty God, the Creator of heaven and earth, came down and asked Adam: 'Where are you?' God knew exactly where Adam was, even better than Adam did. Instead of pointing directly at him, God called to Adam and waited for him to answer. God gave Adam space, and called for him from a distance. He could just have easily struck Adam with a lightning bolt, or picked him up by his ear, but instead He waited for Adam to answer Him on his own.

    When you stumble, God will always call for you. You can run, but you can't hide from the presence of the Lord. The mistakes that you have made, He already knows about so there is nothing to hide from. Jesus has already paid for your sin, even the ones in your future. With a simple prayer, you can have a clean slate and be washed as white as snow. So don't try to cover up your mistakes. Instead, learn from them. His strength is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). Don't put on a church face for we are not fooling Him with our religious shenanigans. Just be real, and be you, and talk to Him wherever you are without hiding from His presence.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You today for Your mercy. I pray that You draw my heart to You and teach me to hear Your voice clearly. May Your will be done, in my life. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: It is New Year''s Eve! Thank you all for stepping into 2018 with us, and we pray that you all have a joyful and safe time ringing in the new year!

This message is so true! We are home from California and I am humbled by the creation God put here for us to enjoy! I seem to have found my purpose on this trip some how. It has been burned into my brain somehow, Jesus came to forgive us of our sins and it is time for us to understand what that really means. While God forgave Adam and Eve, they found themselves having to leave the garden and never return. Too many people seem to believe they can just continue on living how ever they choose as long as they ask for forgivness. Sin comes with consequences, Gal 6:7 says that God will not be mocked, what a man sows, he will reap. Yes, Jesus died for your forgiveness, but the time for change is today. God is not a wind up on Sunday God!

Dear Heavenly Father please help me to always be real inside and out, to be what you intended me to be! You are the potter and I am the clay and mold me and make me what you want me to be, I am week, but you are strong, but I can do and endure all things through you! Help me to finish the race that you have said before me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray!

Also, dear Heavenly Father please bless Pastor Dion and Sylvia in this coming year and the ministry and outreach they have started and keep them in the palm of Your hands, in Jesus name I pray, Amen!
