As 2007 comes to close, here are a few passages or thoughts that God allowed me to "chew on" this past year:

It's all about His glory.
Romans 11:33-36

My thinking must be different than the rest of the world.
Romans 12:2

Obedience is everything.
1 Samuel 15:22

Who am I to try to explain God? The more I know the less I understand.

God may ask you to do things that others will say "that's not right."
Isaiah 20:1-3

Majority doesn't rule, God does.

Would you really want to know God's will for your life? Really?

Few people get it.
Matthew 7:14 , Isaiah 6:9-10

The next reformation I believe will be led by the ordinary. Exodus 3:11 , Jeremiah 1:7

Others will try to steal your joy.
2 Samuel 6:20-23

As you get closer to God others become jealous.
Numbers 12:1-16 , 1 Kings 22:24

When you love things, you use people. We are called to love people and use things. God gave us the antidote for the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life: Integrity, Humility, and Generosity.
1 John 2:15-16

We must care about the "least of these".
Matthew 25:39-46

The world will come to Christ when we have unity.
John 17:23

We must play offense, not defense!
Hebrews 10:38-39

Conquer evil by doing good.
Romans 12:21

Could I be as obedient as Elijah and say one 17 word sermon and then go sit out by a brook and with a widow woman for 3 years before my next sermon? Would people call me lazy?

Could I hang in there like Isaiah and Ezekiel and preach for decades without anyone turning toward God? Would I be called a failure?

God made me so He could show the world how much He could love someone.

My passion for Him must NEVER become lukewarm.
Revelation 3:15-16

I must seek righteousness, love mercy, and walk humbly. Micah 6:8 , Ephesians 4:17-24 , Ephesians 2:15 , Philippians 2:3

Need an answer? Fear of the Lord brings wisdom and understanding.
Psalm 111:10

God spoke to Moses plainly because he was faithful, obedient & humble.
Numbers 12:6-8

No more small thinking.
Ephesians 3:20-21 , Isaiah 49:4-6

Faith is believing God is who He says He is and will do what He has said He will do. span>Romans 4:17-18

Rescued, redeemed, washed…speechless!
Ezekiel 16:59

Worship is not about me, it is something we do, regardless of how we feel about it. Worship is the act of obedience to the revelation of who God is.
Isaiah 6:1-3

I am a container for the Almighty God!
2 Corinthians 4:7-12

I will go!
Isaiah 6:6-8

I will live a life that makes no sense unless there is a Heaven!

I will live a life that makes hell shake!

I will settle for nothing
less than the Kingdom of God!

Serving my King!

Can't wait to see how God uses you in 2008!
