Relationship with God the Father

Relationship

Relationship 

‘Living in faith’.
I have called myself a Believer with great passion. I minister to folk who need Coaching in areas of Parenting, Gifts, Talents, Career and Relationships.
Suffice to say I am a committed Christian and am often called upon for my prophetic words, prophetic songs and prayers for the sick.
But, after all these years I cannot say that I have a proper relationship with my Heavenly Father.
I go through the motions and get great Spiritual breakthroughs with Him. I meditate upon the Bible and can recite passages from proverbs and Psalms.
But after many years trying to know the Lord more clearly, I have concluded I have something of an ‘Orphan Spirit’.
I grew up a loner and lived as a single man for many years. Inevitably I took my loneliness to the workplace, and to the family and finally to the church..
To my surprise, when I became a Christian I witnessed many other orphans both in and out side the church.
The only cure I’ve found to this loneliness is through ‘Relationship’ This is the missing key to isolation; not only in the church but in the office, shop, family and fellowship.
The Relationship I am speaking of is of a continual stream of Father’s love.
Speaking to Him in our inner man, thanking Him, glad of His presence, help, encouragement and confidence – all being received by faith.
Continual communication with the Father in this way develops a strong and meaningful Prayer life.
The relationship that develops is as a father/mother relationship whereby we know He is with us and we can refer to Him continually.
No more an Orphan/son or Daughter.

Arise Godly Father Figures in the Church

When we are not affirmed by a Godly ‘father figure’, life can be an up-hill struggle.

0001
God the Father ordained that man should not be alone, but be placed in families where mutual trust and encouragement would be the norm. Our value and worth is related to what we do and how we are nurtured within the context of ‘Family’.

And yet as the very fabric of ‘families in society’ wears so thin, even fathers are now relinquishing their traditional and God made roles of authority and affirmation.

Increasingly marriages are breaking down and children and young adults are growing up without a strong concept of ‘fathering’. It is truly amazing what people can do when they know the strength of a father figure rooting for them.

So, my call is Arise, ‘father figures’ in the church and let us make a positive move to re-dress the balance.”  

Psalm 91 – Relationship With God The Father

Photo: frank woutersPsalm 91… please handle carefully!

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God in Him I trust.”

Thought,… God is not having a bad day because you are not Praising Him. He is receiving all genuine Praise & Worship in abudence from all corners of the Earth at any one time.

Having relationship with God though is another matter and can only be established through faith in Christ Jesus.

Even though you are Praising God does’t mean you are in relationship with Him. In fact only very few are in relationship with Him. They think that God might be too busy to listen to our concerns; or too ‘Mighty’ to be granted an audience with; or He simply too angry at our sins !

“NO!” That is just not the case!

Now go back to Psalm 91 at the top of the page and begin reading it again, only this time use the ‘subjective’ language so that it now reads…

“I dwell in the Secret place of the Most High, I abide under the shadow of the Almighty. “I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, My God, In Him I will Trust.”

“Surely He shall deliver me from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover me with His feathers, And under His wings I shall “take refuge;”                        His truth shall be my shield and buckler; I shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the  arrow that flies by day, Nor for the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.”

“A thousand shall fall at my side, And ten thousand at my right hand; But it shall not come near me. Only with my eyes shall I look and see the reward of the wicked.

“Because you have made the Lord, who is your refuge, Even the Most High, my dwelling place, no evil shall befall me, nor shall any plague come near my dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways. In their hand they shall bear me up, Lest I dash my foot against a stone.”

Prayer for Peace

Peace like a River

Peace like a River

Biblical peace does not necessarily mean the absence of problems. Neither does it mean the peace that comes with a warm sun shimmering like cut glass upon a languid river. As precious as these moments are they are not to be overly sought as a means of avoiding inevitable problems and challenges of life!

Neither are problems to be expected nor feared!

For us Christians, who have a promise from Scripture that problems will come our way, how then are we to deal with inevitable problems?

The answer is that the promise of peace comes through faith in Christ Jesus; and like any other grace it has to be applied by faith.

Jesus is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9 v 6) We can switch on His peace any time we need – just like we can switch on a light to dispel the darkness.

By turning to Him in troubled times we have the assurance of receiving His peace; a peace that passes understanding.

The key is to remain in Him! For ‘In Christ’ we are filled with the fullness of God. It is received by faith.

God’s Love Song for You!

Spring is in the air! A time for romance, a time for love! And a time of celebrating God’s beautiful Creation.

To help get you in the mood, I thought I’d share this video and song with you.

It is a song I wrote based on the beautiful chapter ‘The Song of Solomon’ to be found in the Bible. The Song comes from the Musical: “Bible in an Hour Musical.”

If you are currently without a partner and you desire one, God knows your heart. Keep faithful, keep in prayer and keep the Romance!

If you are currently in relationship, please don’t forget your First Love – from whom comes all love, graces and beauty! Enjoy….
