A Life Of Being Led: The Key To Good Success!


Follow The Light By Damien Gorza

Be Led! 

As I went through my day today, in various times of prayer, and while I studied the Word at lunch, one idea kept rising to the top of my heart: "Be Led"

When God says: "Be" watch-out! Light BE! Be Healed! Be it done unto me as you have said! "BE" is a powerful word. If God said "Three Headed Dog: BE!" Even if you've never seen a three headed dog, you are about to! God cannot say BE without causing that BE to come to pass!

Over and over this idea of "Be Led", "Being Led", came up in my heart. I thought of Jesus and how he spoke of only doing the things he saw His Father do, and only saying the things He heard his Father say.

So I looked it up, it's interesting to note how often Jesus refers to his words and actions being those that the Father told him to do/say.
John 5:19New American Standard Bible Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.

John 8:28New American Standard Bible So Jesus said, "When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me.

John 12:49New American Standard Bible "For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.
Jesus was the very essence of: Being Led. Matthew 4:1 refers to Jesus starting his ministry "Being led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil..." Everything Jesus did, He did by being led.

So then I pondered my life verse: 


Joshua 1:8
English Standard VersionThis Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Holman Christian Standard BibleThis book of instruction must not depart from your mouth; you are to recite it day and night so that you may carefully observe everything written in it. For then you will prosper and succeed in whatever you do.

What does it mean to not let something depart your mouth? It means to keep speaking about it all the time, like a raving sports fan who can speak of nothing but his favorite team.

What does it mean to meditate on something day and night? Meditate: to chew, ponder, murmur, repeat to one's self, recite over and over, like an actor trying to get into his role, and internalize his lines. One should not just do this in the morning, not just at night, but starting in the morning and continue throughout the day.

What does it mean to observe to do? It's not good enough to speak about it, it's not good enough to ponder it, memorize it, recite it... this is just the start. As you ponder the Word of God, you will find revelation knowledge. God will reveal to you the things you need to know and do. You must be sure to observe what God is saying/doing, then DO what God says do, and say what God says say.

ONLY when you are responding to the things you are seeing and hearing, will you make your way prosperous, and have good success! Aha! It's back to that again! It's back to Bring Led! Joshua 1:8 is the OT version of "I only do what I see my Father do, I only say what I hear my Father say..."

I Collect Churches

So I have a confession... I have a strange hobby. Some people collect toys, cars, stamps. Some people visit museums, zoos, arboretums.



I... collect church experiences. I visit churches and collect insights on the differences between them, leadership styles, music styles, facility choices, and the overall experience. I collect pastoral teaching and teaching styles. I collect theology and theological differences.
I didn't know it was a hobby at first. I thought I was just "looking for a home church", or looking for something I hadn't found yet. I thought I just hadn't found my place...

Some of that is true. But really, I somewhat accidentally turned studying church into a hobby. Maybe it's because I was a pastor's kid and saw some of the inside workings from a unique perspective. Maybe it's because I secretly, and not so secretly, feel I am supposed to be a pastor but I'm still trying desperately to be anything else.

Maybe it's because Church, …

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

Her hu…

TEMAN


te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36). A duke Teman is named among the chiefs or clans of Edom (Genesis 36:42 1 Chronicles 1:53). He does not however appear first, in the place of the firstborn. Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…

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?
