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.

    Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise
    Down but not out, hungering and thirsting for more!

    Because of a malfunctioning wireless router I am writing this from a McDonalds Restaurant a couple of miles from my home. Last evening Patti mentioned because our internet is down I wouldn’t be able to send out the Glory Seeds. “I’ll just go down to McDonalds and do it,” I told her. So here I am sitting with a large coffee with 2 creams. A few feet away 3 fellows are talking about politics and an assortment of other topics. (A few minutes later.) Well, I guess they’ve solved all the world’s problems so now I am alone in this part of the dining area.

    However, I am not alone! Even here in McDonalds I can feel the presence of God and I don’t know about you but whenever and wherever I feel God’s presence I hunger and thirst for more. Sitting in an eatery where you can eat until you can’t eat anymore I am reminded of… “As a deer gets thirsty for streams of water, I truly am thirsty for you, my God. In my heart, I am thirsty for you, the living God. When will I see your face?” (Psalms 42:1-2 CEV)

    When I think about my insatiable appetite and passion to produce these Glory Seeds one of the most powerful motivators is my insatiable appetite and passion for God. However, it wasn’t that long ago my appetite and thirst for God were based on what God could do for me, but the more God blessed me the hungrier and thirstier for him I became and slowly a simple 4 word message began forming in my spirit, “But what about me?”

    “God, as we hunger and thirst for the blessings needed to live our days in this life our greatest need is YOU. As we struggle through the storms we encounter it is out of YOUR insatiable appetite of love the Holy Spirit will come to us with blessings of strength and encouragement needed to hold Jesus’ hand until the storms pass and the sun shines again. Amen.”

    Believe! Anticipate! Experience! Be transformed!
    Grace and PEACE, Amen!
