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

    The wonderfulness of God…

    “God, your thoughts are precious to me. They are so many! If I could count them, they would be more than all the grains of sand. When I wake up, I am still with you.” (Psalms 139:17-18, NCV)

    God is wonderful beyond wonderful!

    God’s thoughts are wonderful beyond wonderful!

    The Prophet Isaiah quoting God wrote, “Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9 NCV)

    God’s thoughts are so wonderful that we need the Holy Spirit to help us understand them. But even though the Holy Spirit becomes the voice of God telling us of God’s high and lofty thoughts our understanding of them will still be limited.

    However, there is a law that not only applies to natural world but the world spiritual world as well. “The closer to the source of power the more power can be transferred.” The planet Mercury absorbs more of the suns power than does the planet Earth. Likewise the intimate you are with Jesus the more intimate you will be with the God.

    The Apostle Paul puts it this way. “But God has shown us these things through the Spirit. The Spirit searches out all things, even the deep secrets of God. Who knows the thoughts that another person has? Only a person’s spirit that lives within him knows his thoughts. It is the same with God. No one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we did not receive the spirit of the world, but we received the Spirit that is from God so that we can know all that God has given us.” (1 Corinthians 2:10-12, NCV)

    Perhaps the three most important words used by Paul are these “but we received” which means that we already have the capability of knowing God’s thoughts (to the extent we need to understand them) we only need to increase our capacity to do so, we need to “snuggle up” closer to God!

    Believe! Anticipate! Experience! Be transformed!

    Grace and PEACE, Amen!

    Gary

    Amen Gary!
    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)
