The One Who Knows Us the Best

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations." (Jeremiah 1:5 NKJV) Your parents are usually the two people whom you trust the most to have your best interest at heart, and to wisely advise you. After all, usually, they are the two who love and care about you no matter what and know you better than anyone. However, there is one who knows you better than your parents and loves you more than them. That is God. Your parents have only known you since they conceived you, but God says before He even formed you He knew you and sanctified you. God says He even knows how many hairs are on your head. Can your earthly parents say that? AND, God says He loves us unconditionally. Parents sometimes have problems with this. So, my question is this, Why would we NOT listen to God's advice and follow His lead? Who better to guide us through life than the one who has known us the longest and love us unconditionally!

Remembering Your Heritage

"The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together." (Romans 8:16-17 NKJV) We are ALL children of God. And, as such we are all part of a royal family. We should therefore present ourselves as royalty and allow ourselves to be presented as such. God gives us His best, and in return expects us to do our best and live our best. This does not mean we are to act haughty, snobbish, or self-centered. We are to be giving, loving, and caring...and we are to hold others to this standard. By following God's example, we should expect the same of ourselves and of others. Often we make the mistake of compromising down when we shouldn't. This only cheats ourselves. Let us hold ourselves and others to the standard of a royal, because that is who we are. Love, Beau

"Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects; Therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty." (Job 5:17 NKJV) A parent who loves their child will give it guidelines and rules to follow. When they break these they are disciplined and or restricted. Parents do this not to be mean, controlling bullies, but to teach children right from wrong, proper behavior, and to hopefully help them reach their full potentials. God is our Heavenly father, and as our Heavenly father He does the same thing. He gave us the Ten Commandments, our rules. When we break these rules there are consequences. But, just like with humans, God only deals with people He truly loves and cares about (which is ALL of us). It is a happy day knowing that God loves and cares about us so much that He takes the time to teach us, refine us, and discipline us when we lose our way... and God does it with the upmost love, care and concern. Love, Beau

Moving Mountains

"So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you." (Matthew 17:20 NKJV) God did not mean that people could physically move mountains. This was an illustration used in biblical times that people could understand. What God was saying was that if one has the tiniest bit of faith then one has the capability to do things that seem just as difficult and impossible. Taking this one step farther, back in biblical times they "moved mountains" by digging up areas, carrying the ground to another location and building up that area. When they made bricks to build their temples and buildings, they were made in one place, carried to another, then hoisted up to where they were needed. In both cases strength, and perseverance were also needed to move the mountains. This is still true today. No matter what your mountain is, not only does it take that tiniest bit of faith, which also includes belief, but it takes strength and perseverance to follow through for the long haul. But, like, Jesus said, you can move that mountain! Love, Beau
