Wilderness Before Promise: Entering the Promise Land

Desert Hills by  Jose Maria Cuellar
Being Led Into The Wilderness
It's hard to search the bible for being "led" without coming back to the story of Israel in the wilderness, or references to it.
Deuteronomy 8:2 NKJV
And you shall remember that the Lord your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not. Is it possible that we create our own wilderness experiences; or, is it that we prolong them by our defiance?

The Wilderness Precedes the Promise
Matthew 4:1
Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.So we can see a pattern emerging. From Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Israel the Nation, Elijah, to Jesus himself, wilderness times precede the promise. These are times of testing and proving. I don’t think God needs you to prove anything to Him. He knows what you are capable of, more than you do.
What God wants, is for you to expe…

Romans 8: In God We Trust!?

Romans 8 is PACKED full of good stuff! Who knew all this was in the same chapter!?Why do I find it so hard to believe God? I mean over, and over, and over, He has proven himself faithful to me, in very real and practical ways. Just recently, the favor He's shown in moving me to my new job position, has been nothing short of miraculous.

Nevertheless, as soon as the next trial comes along, I start doubting again. After awhile, if the same problem is coming up over and over, the only place to look is in the mirror.

ME? You mean I'm the problem? Well, yes, I am. But that's not the mirror I'm referring to. 

 James 1

22But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no …

$0.74 vs $3.96 - How does your perspective change your decision making?

Have you ever got something in your head so strong... that you failed to see the bigger picture?How I refused to pay $3.96 to fix a $72.41 problem, all because it wasn't $0.74.
I hate heat! HATE it! Passionately hate it. I grew up in 125*F summers and I would rather live in snow than heat. Apparently the one thing I hate more is spending money on something I cannot eat. So, I've driven around in 80-90 weather with the windows down, so I could save less than $5. This is SO sad looking back on it.
$0.74 vs $3.96
I've known since BEFORE summer arrived that the air conditioner in my 2001 Honda Odyssey was broken. Worse yet, I've known exactly what to do to fix it. This video, here, describes the issue in perfect detail. It describes the part, a "Transistor Assembly", as a $72.41 part. At my current budget, that's a LOT of money.

But wait, the third time I watched the video I noticed a link that I'd been ignoring to this companion video, here, describing h…

I have a knack for absorbing information, breaking it down to its root elements, and teaching it to others.

Most importantly, I help purpose-driven people to understand their place in His-Story and provide them the tools they need to fulfill their unique position of opportunity and influence in this world (their Topos).
