Getting Stuck

Do you know the show “Monk?”  I used to watch that show with my kids.  This guy Monk was really OCD with some pretty strange phobias but he had this gift to “see.”  He could walk in a room and “see” exactly what happened, what was missing, what didn’t belong, what was out-of-place and more.…

Mediation of revelation

In the last few posts I’ve been trying to reveal a new way to see mediation.  In our fallen nature we are dead to a loving God.  We lost our connection in the Garden after being poisoned by forbidden fruit.  Adam ran from God, instead of to God.  In a moment, Adam went from walking…

“Pick The Red One” again

In “Pick The Red One” I told you a story about spread sheets and cars and Jesus. Go take a look for yourself. After some comments from readers I want to revisit the story briefly. When Jesus said to pick the red one, there was not a red car on the spread sheet. There were…

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…

Zōē Moment

Do you ever feel like a ship on a rough sea?  How about a kite on a windy day?  How about a house of cards?  Maybe you have a sense that you are a house built on shifting sands?  Sometimes we feel so out of control.  Sometimes we make plans to see them fail.  Sometimes…

Facts or Truth

I had a class in grad school that was pretty tough.  It was a class on theoretical aerodynamics (yep I am one of those).  We would start a theoretical proof from some basic assumptions that we knew were true like pressure varies with temperature (ideal gas law) and other really geeky boring stuff for most…

Knowing

When we begin to see the goodness of God our eyes are opened to a greater revelation of Him.  We see Jesus on the cross as more than an event.  We see God in Christ.  We see the nature of God expressed as a man.  We see how a loving God came to set us…

Love and Respect

God told me to learn what this means: “I can serve you and respect you and still be God.” That may really mess you up in your thinking.  You might ask these questions: “But isn’t God more concerned about what I do?  How could He serve me and respect me when I get it all wrong?  What…

The Gate

Since the fall, our brains see through law.  When we ate from the wrong tree we took on a law way of thinking.  We thought in terms of lists.  In the original language, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was a tree that made us aware of what is good or bad…

Yielded to His Touch

Transformation begins with a rebirth at the cross but is matured in surrender. We are born again a new creation and are transformed into the image of Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. The transformation happens primarily in the mind through our yielding to His way of thinking. We give ourselves as a…
