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.

“What Do You Want?”

The Key To Power is Desire! 

If you don’t know what you want, you will probably end up either doing nothing or doing what others want you to do; which maybe ok, or not!

The Key to your Future BlessingsBy default our wants and needs will gravitate towards the easy option; for example, staying in that low paid job, Ministry, Church, Relationship etc,. even though we may be wanting more out of our relationship with the Lord.

What are we to do then in oder to fulfil that sense of purpose and destiny in our hearts?

On the one hand we don’t want to behave in a presumptuous manner , but on the other hand neither do we want to miss it!

In the Book of Mark: 10.51, Jesus asked His Disciples a simple question –  “What do you want me to do for you?  Until our desire’s come from the heart they have no power to fulfil our purpose.

Although Jesus would have known the answer to His own question, He needed His Disciples to speak out loud what they’d heard Him say. Similarly He’s waiting for us too!

“Passion!”

 

Where there is no Vision the people perish (Proverbs 29:18)

“What is the Vision for my Business?”

images-1With pen and paper to hand I begin crafting a New Year’s Resolution concerning my ‘Christian Coaching Ministry.’ Initially I make a weak attempt to plan for 5 new clients every week; which means I would need to increase my Marketing activity by 50%

Is that possible? Yes, but only with a lot of hard work! … Or a miracle!

A little dis-heartened I sit back in my chair to peruse my environment. I’m seated in a favorite Cafe. Conversation’s flow freely here among the clicking of Lap Tops and clatter of coffee machines. It’s a place of comfort and inspiration. And yet, I’m still stuck! Eventually, my eyes are drawn to a chalked Black Board sign that reads – “Coffee doesn’t ask silly questions – Coffee Understands”

How often I sought the comfort of coffee, and the atmosphere that goes with it. But I now see that it’s not the false comfort of coffee nor the people that I hanker after but of the presence of God. For He alone is the Vision for my Business.

What is the Difference between a Christian Life Coach, Counsellor or Mentor?

400SnowFamilyChristian Life Coaching is about helping the Client get from where they are now to where they want to be expressed as a Goal. Then helping them take action to fulfil their Goal through patient questioning and active listening. Prayer and the application of faith through the Word of God is encouraged together with accountability in fulfilling tasks. A variety of ‘tools’ may be drawn on, such as the application of Mind Renewal, Forgiveness, Disappointment and Unresolved Hurts, as a means of helping Clients identify and achieve their defined Goals.

Counselling is a type of ‘talking therapy’ which involves a person discussing emotional difficulties and problems in a supportive and confidential environment. The Counselor does not give advise nor be judgemental, rather their role is to listen to the client with empathy
so as to help them understand their feelings and behavior Hopefully the client finds their own solutions to their problem.

Mentoring A Mentor is an accomplished and experienced professional/expert who has a desire to help, to guide and develop a junior or more advanced person.

God’s New Year Plan For Your Life

If you were to acquire a new ‘Open-Plan’ Office Space you would probably seek an Interior Designer to plan it out to suit all your needs."Plans to prosper you..."
An Interior Designer has much experience in understanding your needs and will work with you from your ‘scribbled notes’ and verbal brief to produce something wholly functional and attractive. When we find that kind of relationship we know that we have found something special! And what a comfort it is to know that we are being cared for!

So, at the beginning of this new year why not invite Jesus, The ‘Eternal Designer’ of your life to make something special – even beautiful – of your Career, Relationships, Talents and Gifts.

It only requires for you to let Him in. You will need to give Him an outline Brief of what you would like to achieve with your God-given talents and gifts this coming year. And then prayerfully release it to the Lord. Why not personalise this prayer to help you get started –

“Heavenly Father, I thank You for the plans You have for me, to prosper me … to give me a hope and a future. I ask that this year You will show me the way to go and give me the grace to lay hold of all that you have laid hold of me. Amen!”

If you would like a prayer of agreement please contact me Here. Simply give me an outline of your prayer request and I will pray in agreement with you.

How does God see you?


God gave us the faculty to see beyond our present circumstances. He gave us ‘Imagination!’ – to see ourselves in the context of an Eternal purpose and calling.

NPG x28780,Charles William Anderson Scott,by News ChronicleSo, the question is – what do you see about yourself?

During Winston Churchill’s critical wartime leadership, he asked his Leaders to picture in their minds’ a Victory Parade. He needed them to believe in their hearts that Victory was a certainty!

Don’t let your vision of what is possible be limited to what you fear about yourself, nor of what others think about you; but only what God say’s about you – in His Word. Remember, when God spoke forth Creation He declared that it was good, and that includes you! You are part of His Creation and He wants you to see yourself as He sees you – Blessed with every spiritual blessing in Heavenly places.

This all happens by faith of course, that is faith In Christ – His Redemption.

I include below some Scriptures that will help you get a good picture of yourself, to see yourself as Father God sees you.

You are “God’s child for you are born again of incorruptible seed of the Word of God which lives and abides forever.” (1 Peter:23)

You are “A new creation, old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Cor. 5:17)

You are “Complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” (Col 2:10)

You are “Joint heirs with Christ Jesus” (Rom 8 :17)

You are “Rooted and built up in Christ” (Col 2 : 7)

He has “Delivered your soul in peace from the battle that was against you.” (Ps. 55:18)

What is Christian Life Coaching?

Here is my Definition of Christian Life Coaching. I hope it helps.

What is Christian Life Coaching

Christian Life Coaching is about helping others see themselves as God see’s them and doing what God see’s them doing – expressed as a Goal.

Often involving letting go of past dissappointments, the Coach will encourage the Client to move forward to achieving the Goal by increasing their motivation and Christ confidence.

The process aims to inspire thoughts through patient questioning, active listening and prayerful reflection. Resultant thoughts are translated into motivation by the great benefits that can be achieved; thus making Transformation a real possibility.

SPIRIT – The Lord Inspires.

SOUL – The Soul meditates on it.

BODY – The Body outworks it.

Journaling your Christian Life

images-6.jpeg

“Talking with God, The Word” By Peter j Foster

You’re either a fan of journaling, or not.

If not, let me try convert you to the benefits of this growing Art of communication with God.

First of all, please be assured this is not about ‘automatic handwriting’, the sort practised by New Ager’s. This is for Born Again, Spirit-filled Believers who desire to talk to God and to hear God speaking to them – to develop their relationship with Father God and continue to seek Him.

I guess you could say that Journaling would help if you enjoy writing; but this is not necessary true. I kept a journal for many years before I became a Christian. I found it remarkably therapeutic in committing my thoughts, plans, ideas and concerns to paper. I love writing, but this is not about writing per se. It is about developing a relationship with Father God

So here goes with your first step in relating with God through Journaling.

1. Get yourself a handy writing pad; not too small, you’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll fill it.

2. Find a convenient time of day to journal and a favourite place to spend time with God. (Actually it can be anywhere; cafe’s are my favourite place!)

3. Settle your mind. Pray. Welcome His presence. Perhaps read the Bible and meditate on His love for you.

4. Begin writing.

Begin writing what? You may ask.

Well, you could begin by asking God about something that concerns you. Write it all down. Get it off your chest. Detail it. Express any confusion, hurts, fears or whatever. And now wait to see what comes to mind, then write it down! Write it as it comes to you. Don’t worry about grammar, accuracy or scriptural relevance at this stage. You can always test it later with the Word of God and trusted friends/partner. The important thing is to get into the flow of writing, without feeling anyone looking over your shoulder!

You could begin with writing about how you feel. What’s troubling you, exciting you or challenging you. Just allow yourself to write freely. Let it all out. Hold nothing back. After all, no one is going to know about it except you and God. (Unless you lose your Journal, so guard it with your life!)

As an example, I often write my plans and ideas for ministry, outreach, business, relationships and finances. It really helps to get my thoughts out of my head and on to paper. Sometimes simply reading it back begins to inspire (from God) my thoughts, solutions, creative ideas. In response be ready to write down quickly what is coming to mind. It is so easy to forget what God is saying. – if you do not commit it quickly to paper.

There’s no need to analyse it at this stage what you have written. Just enjoy the spontaneity of writing from your mind and from your heart. And believe that God is right there with you – listening, reading your words and beginning to release solutions, answers to questions and encouraging remarks. He’s your Heavenly Father and desires that you flow in your relationship with Him.

In the Bible we read in John 10:27 that: “My sheep hear my voice…” That’s us! We hear God’s voice speaking to us. Yes, primarily God speaks to us through Scripture – but also spontaneously where the Lord wants us to apply Scripture to a particular life situation. His Word is tailored, as it were, to each of our circumstances. Which is why of course we must never assume a relationship with God outside of regular reading of the Bible.

In a ‘nutshell’, Spiritual Journaling is about what God is saying to you through your prayers, questions and understanding. The journaling process will sustain you in times of hardship, inspire creative solutions to problems and bring clarity and focus to what God is saying and doing in your life.

The writer Henri Nouwen wrote: “To my surprise, I never lost the ability to write. In fact, writing became part of my struggle for survival. It gave me the little distance from myself that I needed to keep from drowning in my despair.” (From the Book: Inner voice of Love.)
