Glory Seed Guidelines

Notice – The ministries featured in this section of TheologyWeb are guests of this site and in some cases not bargaining for the rough and tumble world of debate forums, though sometimes they are. Additionally, this area is frequented and highlighted for guests who also very often are not acclimated to debate fora. As such, the rules of conduct here will be more strict than in the general forum. This will be something within the discretion of the Moderators and the Ministry Representative, but we simply ask that you conduct yourselves in a manner considerate of the fact that these ministries are our invited guests. You can always feel free to start a related thread in general forum without such extra restrictions. Thank you.

These daily devotionals are brought to you by Gary Piper, a writer with our Sister Site, Natural Spirit Ministries. TheologyWeb encourages you to visit and support their site.... they have many informative articles which can be discussed right here. If you enjoy Gary Piper's devotionals, please send him an encouraging note or post. We are very appreciative of our partnership with Natural Spirit Ministries and look forward to many more co-ventures.

    A Planting of Faith Seeds for the Glory of the LORD
    Keep on Keeping on…

    “…But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.” (Galatians 6:8–10, NLT)

    “At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing IF WE DON’T GIVE UP.” I don’t know about you but to me that sentence is bittersweet because it not only encourages me to “keep on keeping on” but it also establishes the importance of trust. My understanding of trust is very simple to trust is the act of “keeping on” whenever everything else is commanding you to quit.

    I suspect you have firsthand knowledge/experience that trusting takes (at times) a lot of courage. But if you’re like me there are times when in the “thick” of long, tiresome, and life draining experience I need a gentle reminder that God has not only pre-equipped me for what lies yet ahead but also what awaits me when the experience becomes a faith growing memory. “But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control...” (Galatians 5:22–23, NLT)

    Are you in the “thick” of a long, tiresome, and life draining experience and quitting is becoming easier than picking up a foot and taking another step? I don’t know how many more steps you’ll need to take before the experience becomes a faith growing memory but I can with 100% confidence tell you. “As you trust in the LORD you will find new strength. You will soar high on wings like eagles. You will run and not grow weary. You will walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31, NLT, adapted) It’s working for me!

    Believe it! Experience it!

    Grace and PEACE!
