Listen for your own message: Hebrews 1:1-4

Divine Note #2: Monday, Dec. 15, 2008

Every day we’re bombarded with competing messages about how we should behave, what God’s expectations are and how we should live our lives. We get messages at church, from family and from society. But really, I have found that it’s in the quiet times and when I am genuine, that I am open to listening to God. He speaks to my heart, I just have to be still and listen.

In the Old Testament, God spoke through prophets, but now we have His Son – that wonderful Jesus! Don’t get ahead of yourself or try too hard to “get a message.” Instead, listen with your heart and obey the promptings of His Holy Spirit.

Consider writing down your thoughts and perhaps starting a journal to help you connect with Him. This also helps you remember the good things He has done for you when you are in a valley season. Maintain a continuous conversation with Jesus during the day; don’t just just pray at night. And remember to listen, quiet your spirit and hear His messages for your life.

Scripture: Psalm 92:12-15
Psalm 92:
12 Good people will prosper
    like palm trees,
    and they will grow strong
    like the cedars of Lebanon.
13 They will take root
in your house, LORD God,
    and they will do well.
14 They will be like trees
that stay healthy and fruitful,
    even when they are old.
15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

Human life no longer matters

I'm deeply troubled and you should be, too. 

The sanctity of human life no longer matters. I'm outraged at the killing of yet another black man - two in one day - by police in this country. This is terrorism aimed at people of color. It is NOT acceptable - we are ALL created in God's image. 
Christians can't be quiet - no matter your color.
Philando Castille was shot and killed by police as he reached for his license while his girlfriend and child watched. The video making the rounds should make you cry - it could be your husband, son or brother!!

Stop and pray for his family and friends. Pray for Alton Sterling's family. Mr. Sterling was killed by police earlier in the day in Baton Rouge. 
This madness must stop. This is NOT okay. 
Genesis 1:27 So God did just that. He created humanity in His image, created them male and female.
