Have you been spiritually blessed by both direction and correction from God?

Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law; (Psalms 94:12 KJV)

None of us should dwell upon or relish instances leading to trouble and discipline in our life.  When we think of particular times we have gotten in trouble often we harbor or hold onto memories of times of rebellion against the authority of parents, teachers, or other authority figures.  ...

Is your walk above reproach and authentic all for the honor and glory of God and not for selfish gain?

I speak as concerning reproach, as though we had been weak. Howbeit whereinsoever any is bold, (I speak foolishly,) I am bold also. Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I. (2 Corinthians 11:21-22 KJV)

Paul was defending his ministry that God had called him to do.  ...

What forces do you rely upon to battle the real enemy; your strength or the supernatural strength of God?

There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. (Psalms 33:16-17 KJV)

There is no Army or Special Forces, Superman, or Batman and Robin, or Hollywood hero who can usher in enough prowess ...

If you are serving God lukewarmly you will reap according to your half-hearted sowing.

Amaziah was twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem. And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart. Now it came to pass, when the kingdom was established to him, that he slew his servants ...

God’s Word is like a sword:  causing a natural variance as mankind is cut and pierced to the innermost; separating unto peace with God or unto disharmony amid the throes of the devil.

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her ...

You will reap what you sow upon the earth.

He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. (Matthew 12:30 KJV)

This scripture verse is short and precise in its inspired message.  God does not have a proverbial fence upon this earth that we can relax and rest upon, or go back and forth between choosing His way and the way of the god of this world.  God freely offers all ...

Will God find you faithful; or not know you as His own, ushering you into the fires of Hell for all eternity?

Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man’s judgment: yea, I judge not mine ...
