If you’re like me, sometimes you need a little extra strength. And a little, no, make that a lot more love. A little faith, no a lot more faith. There’s a song about having “a little faith” and it sounds all pious but it’s not. God is not the god of just a little bit. No more than we want our kids to sniff the spinach bowl and disdain the roast beef rather than enjoy the entire meal – no more than that does God want us to take just a little bit.
In the secular college where I studied economics, we were taught scarcity of resources, just as Satan intends we all be taught. Rather than being taught to simply create more pie, we are taught about that one measly pie. By people of greed and lack we are taught greed and lack. We have limited, scarcity, I’d-better-not-expect-too-much, if-I-prosper-that means-someone-else-can’t (but too bad for them), mentalities.
But God wants to give us all the good and then embellish it! He wants to give us the truck farm of spinach and serve up helpings of it along with the steak from our cattle on a thousand hills and finish it off with key lime pie shared with the neighbors under twinkle lights on our big decks built out over the water.
Livnig water. My nephew’s son has had an intestinal issue lately and they think it may be too much swimming in the river, which is low right now, stagnant. Folks, we are all putting up with low water, swimming in stagnant water, and completely doing without the readily available living water of Jesus.
We think in lack. Even those of us with money in the bank think in lack. Always in a defensive, “yeah but, what if” mentality. And almost guaranteeing that the lack will come (we say what we believe and we have what we say, we get what we expect), and even if it doesn’t come, we never enjoy what we have and where we are.
So, we need faith. I’m going to talk a little, but say a lot, about faith today, bodacious faith. And we’ll see how so many things flow out of faith, and flow into faith. We’ll see a cycle of faith.
So call anyone you know who struggles with doubt, who frets and worries, who has anxiety lines right between her eyes (anyone who is a human, especially a human female) and tell them:
http://www.1360am.co is the place to go, for The Homefront Show.
Also today we’ll talk about the power of posture and poise, about the Inviting Life,`Housekeeping Howevers, baking pineapple for brunch, about being a COI per Krista Dunlap, and from The Founder’s Bible we’ll see how two of our founding parents had great expectations for their children. I’ll feature Roma Downey’s book, Box of Butterflies, and Emilie Barnes’ Tea Lover’s Devotional. And we’ll begin today’s show with beauty AND PERHAPS A CORRECTION, from Psalm 19:12.
All this and more today at 2:00 Mountain Time at www.1360am.co
