Following the Will of God

10 08 2013

Re-establishing the Cornerstone of ChristI have been working with a team to re-establish the cornerstone of Christ in Oregon. We have traveled to the SW corner so far, and we have 3 corners to go. When we went to the SW corner we all knew we needed to go back and finish the assignment and yet with two weeks to go some have made other plans so the team and the trip has fallen apart., leaving the assignment unfinished.

When we are left with an assignment unfinished we have a choice how we respond. Sometimes, we are supposed to go back and finish the assignment, while other time we must be willing to allow what was done to be good enough. Taking this second option, allowing what was done to be good enough is sometimes the toughest thing, because we have to wrestle with leaving the rest of the assignment to the Lord.

We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, those whom he has called according to his plan.

Rom 8:28

When you have to leave an assignment unfinished, you must put your faith in God and praise him for what has been accomplished, so I have made the choice to trust the Lord to finish the work in His timing as I praise the Lord for the re-establishment of the Cornerstone of Christ is the SW corner of Oregon!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

All Things Work Together for Good – Romans 8:28

28 05 2013

CJM officeAll things work together for good…

We say it, but do we really believe it?

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Romans 8:28

As I moved into my office yesterday something curious happened, suddenly I remembered a moment very much like that one years ago when Good Samaritan Ministries (GSM) asked me to open an office for them, near my home.

Then I struggled to prepare the office much like I have this time, yet I see how God used that first office to reveal His calling upon my life, even while I was not completely ready. I was still broken, still struggling in my own life, did the founder of GSM see something in the spirit that I myself did not see?

I used to think the time I spent in the GSM office was of no value, and in fact even a waste of valuable time. I remember those days of sitting in the office praying for clients, hoping I wouldn’t spend another day alone. It was a time of intimacy with the Lord, one of preparation and  learning my true calling. Learning that my job was not to tell someone what was wrong but rather to help them engage the Lord so they could reconcile their past with who they were today.

All things, even those moments you see as of little or no value, will be put into good use at the appropriate time!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Christ – Patience of a Saint

9 02 2013

7 P of the Life of Christ - 1In the last several posts we have been talking about the 7P’s of the life of Christ. The first was plan, the second purpose, the third path, the fourth presence and today we look at the fifth, patience.

But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

Rom 8:25

Christ worked hard to be a patience man as we see in the encounter with the son his disciples could not cure in Matthew 17:17, Then Jesus answered and said “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him to me.”

As Christ waited to fulfill his purpose here on earth he had to wait until man was ready. Matthew 17:17 clearly reveals the disciples were not ready for Christ to go to the cross as they were stillBaby learning to have greater faith.

Like Christ, you and I have to wait patiently for what we know is to happen. “One day my child will walk” the mother reminds herself as she struggles not to pick up her child who is diligently attempting to crawl across the floor.  We must have patience, for in having patience we allow others to mature, coming to the place where they too can walk the path the Lord has for them.

May these words of the apostle Paul from Colossians 1:11 encourage you.

“May you be made strong with all the strength which comes from his glorious power, so that you may be able to endure everything with patience. And with joy give thanks to the Father, who has made you fit to have your share of what God has reserved for his people in the kingdom of light.”

Join me next time as we look at the sixth P, perseverance.

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Children of God Move by the Spirit!

22 09 2012

In today’s post we continue this series on Moving in the Spirit as we look once again in Romans and the words of Paul.

“Only those people who are led by God’s Spirit are his children.

God’s Spirit doesn’t make us slaves who are afraid of him.

Instead, we become his children and call him our Father.”

 Rom 8:14 – 15

Even God-fearing Christians are afraid of or can’t believe in the move of the Holy Spirit. The world longs for the spirit’s move even sensing that he should be moving, but they don’t know their Heaven Father or his son, Jesus. When they are introduced to the move of another spirit they press in hoping that it will fill the longing for freedom they have in their soul.

When we do not press into the move of the Holy Spirit, we can be tricked into feeling like we are not children of God or as if we are slaves of God, for we are ruled by the commandments of God (his rules) only and not the liberty of Christ (his spirit) which breaks our human bondage.  The great benefit of moving in the Holy Spirit is that he leads us into the freedom of a deeper, more fulfilling relationship with our Heavenly Father.

“Press in my children”, the Lord would say to you this day. “Press into me and know my word, that when my spirit stirs within you, you will be able to partner with me with all your body, all your soul and all your spirit!”

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Life and Peace in the Spirit

18 09 2012

As we continue our series Moving in the Spirit, the book of Romans reveals a key to moving in the spirit as well as giving us insight into why some people though they desire to, aren’t.

“People who are ruled by their desires think only of themselves. Everyone who is ruled by the Holy Spirit thinks about spiritual things. If our minds are ruled by our desires, we will die. But if our minds are ruled by the Spirit, we will have life and peace.”

Rom 8:5-6

I wonder what God thinks of us when we act as if moving in the Holy Spirit is like a light switch we can turn on and off.  When we act in this manner we are deceiving ourselves. We can not be ruled by two masters, for we will love the one and hate the other, scripture reminds us.

When our lives are ruled by the flesh we are wrong to believe the Holy Spirit will still move mightily through us. That is not to say a Christian ruled by the flesh will not experience some move of the Holy Spirit because all Christians do experience the moving of the Holy Spirit. Our desires don’t delete the move of the Holy Spirit, rather our desires hinders it, much like a virus affecting the hard drive of a computer.

As we choose to be ruled by the Spirit, we then move in the spirit more freely because the fight to rule the mind is finished bringing life (in the spirit) and peace.

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

HE Intercedes for US!

8 09 2012

As we continue our series Moving in the Spirit we leave the books of Acts and turn to the eighth chapter of the book of Romans and a familiar verse which comforts us when we don’t know how to pray.

 

“In certain ways we are weak, but the Spirit is here to help us. For example, when we don’t know what to pray for, the Spirit prays for us in ways that cannot be put into words.  All of our thoughts are known to God. He can understand what is in the mind of the Spirit, as the Spirit prays for God’s people.” (Romans 8:26-27 CEV)

 

               Even while we are moving in the spirit, moments will arise when we don’t know what to do or what to say. We will pray and fast until we finally realize some problems are bigger than humanity can handle. Yet as we move in the spirit when those bigger than moments happen causing others to become stressed we can have peace and rest for the spirit intercedes for us. The spirit of God moves mountains when we can’t.

 

               Maria’s son was desperate for a job, they prayed, they fasted leaving the bigger than problem to the bigger than God and within days their bigger than God brought her son a job!

 

               The fact that Christ even now is interceding for us allows us to do greater things than even he himself did. There is so much power in heaven because of Christ and here on earth because of the spirit. We don’t need to worry or be anxious because the spirit intercedes for God’s people!

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie
