  1. Why spend time each day alone with God in prayer, in worship and in His word? Matt 6:6 But you, when you pray, go into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you. Ps 31:20 You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence... Isa 26:9 ...Yes, by my spirit (my heart) within me I will seek You early... When I get alone with God, quiet my thoughts, insure with my heart I’m in God’s presence, and can hear His voice, and can receive His words and His understanding of them; then: -I am always at peace and made genuinely happy, because I’m currently in Christ. -I receive such light from Him to see my life clearly, and power to do what is right. -My heart gets filled up again with His love for me, and for others, and mine for Him. -It is so much easier to say sorry or to forgive others, worry and pride evaporate. -My faith in God and His goodness is re-energized; I know He’s taking care of me. -I become increasingly interested in others and want them to really know Him. -I’m not preoccupied with my own will; I delight to do the will of my heavenly Father. When I don’t get alone with God, due to laziness, muddled thinking, disobedience, work, people, distractions, other commitments, or unresolved sin – God gets crowded out; then: -I seem less able to overcome the daily opportunities to give in to things like resentment, irritation, un-forgiveness, worry and pride. -I have a growing inner sense of guilt and condemnation. My conscience, the voice of my spirit, if it’s tender, condemns me, causing me to feel guilty. -Because I secretly don’t feel good about myself I find I tend to lash out in anger at others more quickly, and blame them for my mounting problems. -With a dark cloud over my soul I can’t help seeing circumstances and people increasingly in a more negative light. I’m more prone to feel sorry for myself. -I have a sense of being driven (not knowing by what) to indulge my favorite appetites to try and make me feel better – but it really doesn’t work I just get more deeply entrapped in bad habits, with a deeper sense of shame. I lack God’s power. Of course I have all kinds of mental explanations for these things – but with reduced or no spiritual light I simply can’t see that the world, my flesh and the devil are having increased influence over me and I’m less able to defend myself against them. And my desire for God and my confidence in Him diminishes. I’ll even think He’s to blame. Isaiah 5:13 Therefore My people are gone into captivity because they have no (new revealed) knowledge (of Me)...they are famished and parched with thirst. Prov. 29:18 Where there is no (new daily) revelation of God (to our spirits from His word by His Spirit) the people cast off restraint (cannot control their own desires). How to start your day with God Jer 29:13 You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Ps 63:1 O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You... Isa 26:9 ...Yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early... 1. Obedience (a) Are you right with God, walking in total forgiveness and without care? (b) Did you go to bed last night when God wanted you to? (c) Did you get up this morning when God wanted you to? (d) Won’t you start your day obeying God and therefore in righteousness? Rom 6:16 ...Either of sin, which results in death (to God), or of obedience, which results in righteousness with God. 2. Priorities Is God your first priority today and will you give Him the pre-eminence over everything and everyone else starting with your early morning time? Col 1:13-18 He has delivered me from the power of darkness and conveyed me into the kingdom of the Son of His love...All things (me included) were created by Him and for Him...that in all things He may have the preeminence. 3. Prayer Matt 6:6 When you pray, go away by yourself, all alone, shut your door, (physically and spiritually) and pray to your Father who is in the secret Place (your spirit); and your Father who sees in secret will reward you. (a) Do you start your day with prayer to your heavenly Father? (b) Is it silent or spoken out loud and delighting angels and driving demons away? (c) Do you thank God for a good night’s sleep? (d) Do you thank God for awakening you alive, and alive to Him and dead to you? (e) Do you tell Him that you want to follow Him today, that you will deny yourself and take up your cross, meaning you believe your old nature was crucified with Christ, the body of your sin has been done away with, you no longer serve sin? (f) Do you present your body to Him as a living sacrifice and as an instrument of His righteousness, because it belongs to Him and is available for His use? (g) Do you ask Him to fill you, to lead you, to water you, to teach you, to conform you, to keep you and to use you, moment by moment, with and by His Spirit, not into temptation but to deliver you from the wicked one? Do you believe He will? (h) Do you ask Him to give you the daily bread of His living word and to renew your inner man with the fresh revealed knowledge of Himself? And expect it? (i) Do you ask Him to cause you to hear His lovingkindness (words) because you trust Him, to cause you to know the way in which you should walk, because you lift up your soul (will) to Him and to cause you to walk in His statutes and to keep His judgments and do them – exactly according to Psa 143:8 and Ezek 36:27? (j) Do you affirm that it is His kingdom in which, and His power by which, you live, it is to His glory for all He is making you and doing through you – in Jesus name? 4. Worship John 4:24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit (from the heart, not the head) and truth (for real, not mechanically). (a) Do you sincerely, ignoring feelings, take time to tell God how much you love Him for who He is and how grateful you are for all He has done and is doing for you? (b) Do you tell Him you worship and adore Him, that you bow your knee before Him and are ready to burst into songs of praise about Him, as you lift up your holy hands in awe of Him, because He alone is worthy to receive honor and glory. For He is your God , your savior, your redeemer, your sanctifier, your life, your king and your Lord? (c) Do you bless Him, and ask that He be glorified through you and His Church today? 5. Feeding Isa 50:4 Morning by morning...He awakens my (spiritual) ear to hear... Prov 6:22 ...When you awake, they (My words) will speak with you. Col 3:10 ...The new man (spirit) is renewed in knowledge (God’s word, transforming him) into the image of Him (Jesus Christ) who created him.. (a) Having asked Him, believingly, for your daily bread how do you now receive it? Reading slowly the next Chapter or one given to you, in the Bible, or an inspired devotional for a given day, or a segment of a truth paper you’ve been drawn to? Or receiving a specific chapter and verse from God and then looking it up? (b) What do you then do? i - Do you ponder the verse or portion of it that is speaking to you? ii - Ask for God to reveal what He wants you to understand by it? iii - Make confession of a revealed sin, pray a revealed truth, intercede for a person He identifies, and give Him thanks for a wonderful revelation. Ps 119:18 Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law. iv- Ask Him for counsel on people and issues upcoming for today? v- Write down on a scratch pad or journal what you’ve received? vi - Insure that God has nothing more for you before you move on? vii - Keep thinking on, believing and acting on what God has said? viii - Plan later to review your notes and then file them by subject in folders? 6. Habits Do you start your day with God this way? All the men and women God greatly used started every day this way. They all found that this was the key to being able to live in Christ all through the day and being enabled by God to overcome whatever challenges the day may have brought, staying at peace, full of joy and the Holy Spirit. If you are not doing this or something like this; and your heart is already saying to you that you should, then why not decide this moment to start. Begin tomorrow morning using this as a guideline and refuse to waiver. Get up early enough (going to bed early enough) to do this well before any commitments for the day. This is of God and He will bless and enable you to do it. When we stick with something, what could be more wonderful than this, for about 30 days, a good habit is now formed. Prov 8:17 I love them that love Me; and those that seek Me early shall find Me. KJV Be Blessed!
  2. Just curious if we have any members who enjoy talking on the phone. Have you connected with any other members via phone? I am not a phone person but know of someone here who likes to connect with others via phone.
  3. My husband and I have been married for almost two years. He is a wonderful Christain man. He loves giving back to the church, dedicating himself to helping family and church family, he is hard working, and so much more. When we first met I immediately knew he was different than most people and that he processes things differently. It is very difficult for him to put himself in someone else's shoes, or understand that others interpret situations differently than he does. There is no ill-will towards anyone, he just cannot empathize well and often misinterprets or misses nuances of meaning. I know this and try to adjust my interactions with him accordingly, but I feel like effective communication is always a struggle. I want to find a better way to communicate with him and to help our marriage grow. When I tell him that I want to connect more and grow our marriage he becomes offended and interprets it as me saying he is a bad husband and our relationship is terrible, which is not the case. When I try to clarify my meaning he shuts down or becomes angry. I have attempted to follow advice saying to dedicate myself to biblical wifely duties and pray that he will become more active and open to growing our marriage. However, it seems the more I dedicate myself to selflessly serving him the more he takes for granted what I do and the more he begins to expect it. If I fail or forget something, like washing his undershirts, he rebukes me as if I am a child that has misbehaved. When I try to tell him how I feel he shuts down or gets upset. So I have tried to be more subtle. I asked if we could start reading the bible together and praying before bed, but again he interpreted it as me saying our marriage is terrible. It isn't terrible, far from it, but before we have children I feel that we need to be able to work better as a team, communicate more effectively, and have a more Christ-centered relationship. Prayers and advice would be greatly appreciated.
  4. I've been unable to get ahold of someone who normally is always reachable. Especially at this hour. This is a strong concern because of intense pains that have been happening to them very recently. I hope I am just pushing the panic button prematurely. But in case this is an emergency, I felt I should ask for you to please pray all is okay. Also, that I will be able to get through to them via the phone or they will notify me if something serious medically is occuring. Meanwhile, I must trust God.
  5. Hello everyone! My username is DaveAJ, but please call me Dave. I want to put this in a way some can understand... This brings some debatable topics into this website, but I wish not to affect your faith, nor your opinions. But please, try to see this in the way that I do. A lot of people know about such claims to seeing and hearing about extraterrestrial encounters or files. Some are hoaxes, but others seem to take a more realistic approach to the entire category. I've heard that these aliens are demons and are here to bring us harm, but I've also heard they are life given to other creatures that are similar to humans. Notice: The usual description and analysis of these things are human-like in body parts. (i.e.: Arms, legs, head, feet, torso, bipedal, etc.) Genesis 1:27 "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." And can be seen in multiple races, such as humans. But I also understand God made angels in his image, and from angels came fallen angels - demons. And these demons wish to bring us harm. But stories seem to point toward aliens having curiosity toward humans, dissecting and probing them. Like humans did (do) to frogs, dogs, cats, etc. to learn more about their anatomy. As I see it, the procedures done unto humans leaves massive psychological and traumatic memories burned into the specimen's brain. I've also noticed the bible says the devil and demons wish to bring torture. But does it say anywhere in the bible that God only made life on earth, or does it not mention other worlds? I can share personal experiences, that make me say that I believe very much that these things are out there, but what is their intention? Good, or harm? I'd like to see what you guys think. Go ahead and comment below, telling me where you stand on the matter. Have a good day/night, and God bless you!
  6. I agree this is not a good habit in communication. God bless, GE
