No More Need Talking!

"Need" is a four letter word to God...


     I have found myself talking a lot about need. I need this or I don't need that. During the South West Believers Convention 2010 this month The Lord arrested my attention on that matter. I've been meditating Philippians 4. We have NO business talking to God about NEED. None at all. We are Children of God.

Jesse Duplantis asked a great set of questions at the opening of one his messages.

"How many husbands out there have ever bought anything for your wives she did not need?"

"How many wives out there have ever bought anything for your husbands he did not need?"

"How many parents have bought anything for their children they DID NOT need?"

"How many grandparents... and that's all I got to say right there... lol"


So what makes us think that God is only interested in showing up to talk about our need? Well that's just greed... no it's growth! If God is your Father than He's your Father!

How many fathers give good things to their children? How MUCH MORE does the Father in Heaven give good things to those who ask? Matthew 7:11 KJV

So what is Jesus saying here? He is saying God is TRYING to be our Father but we aren't letting Him. Here Paul addresses what he learned about that.


Philippians 4

11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content... 13 I can do all things through Christ[b] who strengthens me. 18 Indeed I have all and abound. I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things sent from you, a sweet-smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. 19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20 Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.

    •  We do not consider, pay attention to, or give thought to NEED. Jesus said that the Father already knows our need and they are not to "Give it thought" "Take no thought saying..."
    • I make a vow to never again say "Do we really NEED that?" Do you want it? Then we decide to get it now or later, but we don't "regard" need.
  •  I am content in every circumstance BECAUSE I CAN DO ALL THINGS through the ANOINTING of the ANOINTED ONE! 
    • I do not allow bad circumstances to dictate my emotions or actions, nor do I allow bad circumstances to remain. I take them to prayer in the Spirit and Change them by and through the Anointed Word of God.
  •  I have ALL, and ABOUND, and I AM FULL because I RECIEVED
    •  If I do not have ALL it's in my failure to receive NOT God's failure to give!
  • My God SHALL supply, there is no room for doubt there. He SHALL (that means HE WILL) supply. Can you receive it? I can and I WILL!


Father,

  •      You are MY provider and I receive ALL  and I ABOUND and I AM FULL!  

  •      I RECEIVE you as Father. I take NO thought for my life, you already know my need.(Matthew 6:25
    • I will only speak to you in terms of Want and Desire. 

  •      For you said that you are MY Shepherd and I SHALL NOT WANT (Psalms 23)
  •      I shall ride upon the high places of the earth. (Isaiah 58:14 KJV)      
  • I ask, BELIEVE and RECEIVE:  
    • Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire , when ye pray , believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Cashless Society...

Tale of Two Seasons:
As we quickly approach the last days there are two sets of events simultaneously emerging. The one most average Christians know about, and the one fewer know about. 
Tribulation: Revelation 13:16He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads...
"The Tribulation", a period of 7 years where the earth will come under tremendous stress. Having been vacated of all the Christians, filled with the Holy Spirit, who are the salt and light, and therefore restraining the darkness; the Prince of this present world's system, Satan, will cause his Anti Christ to emerge. 
People will get saved under the preaching of many who knew of the Gospel but didn't believe in their heart or confess with their mouth. There will also be 144,000 Jewish witnesses, from each of the 12 tribes of Israel, who will preach salvation on the earth. Primarily, they will be sent to the people of Israel, and the…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

The Future of Work: Is being a writer (artist, musician, creative) an impractical career?

In a writers group on Facebook, a young writer asked (edited):
How do you respond to family members saying that being a writer is impractical? This is a great question. When I was going to college I stopped pursuing music and theater because it didn't seem to lead to a "practical career". I got bogged down in other things and eventually dropped out (after six years and 78 units). But times are changing and we're in a new type of revolution.

So, what do you think?
What is the future of work? How would you respond?
What is impractical, what does that even mean?First, you reply:
You said 'impractical' when I think you meant 'I'm Practical'. The root of Impractical is Practical, or to be "not-practical". The word practical is derived from the root word PRACTICE.
practicale "of or pertaining to matters of practice; applied,"  All careers require a great deal of practice, hard work, study of the chosen field, and many small wins before th…

FICO, Credit Building, and Credit Cards

FICOSo, I'm still hearing a lot of people say things that are not true, don't make sense, or are just plain bad advice. Credit building is not rocket science. Yes, the formulas and math behind them actually are akin to rocket science math. But some of the basic things the average person needs to know are actually quite simple.
If you want to build credit without paying interest or creating debt read on, or just skip to the bottom to the conclusion. I'm sure you've seen this funny video on TV:


I wrote a post previously about FICO and Credit Decisions, now I want to bring in the focus a little to some basics. The very first things you should know is that THE company that creates your credit score is FICO (the Fair Isaac Corporation). It was started by Bill Fair and Earl Isaac. It is now THE leading credit scoring company on the planet. FICO is the most used credit scoring platform accounting for over 100 BILLION scores sold to date.
