The Hope Dimension

Everyone has seen a “cube” drawn on a piece of paper.  The drawing is a two-dimensional representation (flat paper with two directions say x and y) but you can “see” the third dimension.  The picture is the projection of the cube onto another “dimension” of space.  Can you hear the Twilight Zone music playing right…

There He is, right there

1 Corinthians 1:7 That you are not [consciously] falling behind or lacking in any special spiritual endowment or Christian grace [the reception of which is due to the power of divine grace operating in your souls by the Holy Spirit], while you wait and watch [constantly living in hope] for the coming of our Lord Jesus…

I think our most fundamental issue with God is our ability to trust in Him. Our righteousness, our relationship is defined by our faith and faith is a product of belief and trust.  Often I find people “believe” in the facts or the evidence or existence of God but don’t trust.  They don’t trust in Him. …

Moving God or God Moving?

 Heb 11:1 Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. (AMP) There is a faith and a trust that exceeds personal…

“The Look”

God is the stuff of hope. He is love. Love never leaves you wanting. Love never leaves you alone. Love makes you whole. You were made for love, to give it and receive it. You were made in His image. You are one with Him. You are His home. You are in Him and He…
