Jeremiah 29:11

We pluck [verses] out of context and expect them to work like magic tricks, and unless we understand the context, we should not expect that it’s gonna work like magic on us.

Judge Not

The Bible is a historical document given to us by God to tell us who God is, how He interacts with human beings, and from Genesis to Revelation, God has given us His unadulterated message … so that we might know Him, and live for Him, and understand our purpose, our reason, our interaction with Him, who He is, who we are, our identity, when He’s coming back, and how we’re going to spend our eternity.

Flipsis

Pastor Patrick Steele talks about the christian growth process and it’s link to the trials of this life.

After all of the blessings, and all of the good things he’s done for me… I still find myself back in the place where I’ll be asking if God is really good in this situation or not. Why? Because I’ve been stretched beyond where I was before. I’ve been stretched to the edge of my faith. I’ve been stretched to the end of my capacity to endure it on my own, to the point where I have to come to a place, at the very end where I’m just about to snap, where I learn to trust in God, and not in myself.¬†Patrick Steele

The Invisible Man

The reason you and I can still exist in this relationship, this long distance relationship with Jesus Christ, through time and space, and even through difficult times in our life, is because of the experiential reality that the third person of the Holy Trinity has filled our hearts to overflow, and His presence there inhabiting us on the inside communicates to us indiscriminately, irresistibly, the love of God Himself. That’s Good News!

Thirsty

What would you do if you’d lost everything? And you’re there, disgraced, and shamed, and you’ve lost all of the benefits that you’ve worked for all of your life? What would you cry out for? What would you be asking for? Even though David had once had everything, and he’s now lost everything, David cries out, not God give me back all of these creature comforts that I’ve amassed to myself, and all of the dignity and pomp and splendor of being king, but God, give me more of you. In your trial, in your difficulty, in your desert space, is that what you cry?

Whatever form your bring prayer in or experience prayer in, it simply breaks down to this: you are communicating with God in some way.
