Thought for the day

"God-thinking is about changing the way ou think, by making changes at the very center of your being. What makes a root truth different than other truths, is that, other truths may affect you outwardly, (like adding a branch or a leaf or a flower), but root truths change you inwardly, at the center of your being, changing the whole person from the root, then to the trunk, the branch, the leaf and the flower.

God designed you to receive, understand and utilize every message - from His (Logos) God's written Word and His (Ramah) God's spoken Word. This written and spoken Word is translated from the pages of scripture into acts of love, acts of mercy, acts of peace, acts of forgiveness. For too long you have been hearing from God, but it is not changing you.

The best teaching that has ever graced the planet is being poured out onto God's people: in mega conferences, seminars, in the local church, small store front churches and one on one. You get excited!!!, you are sure that you have heard some great truth at these conferences, seminars, the local church, small store front churches and one on one, but it doesn't stick around for the long haul.

The truth that you heard didn't penetrate the inner soul of your being, the root of your faith and then re-create who youare. It doesn't stick because it was never made part of your root system, your inner most being. The truth just lingers on the outside and makes you frustrated, because:
  • you can see that you received the answers you were looking for
  • you received the power you wanted
  • you could taste the fulfillment of your dreams
  • you heard the words that heal you
but you just couldn't hold onto it. You claim it, you get it in your hands, but it slips away when you are tested or when you are put through the fire. Sometimes it slips away on the ride home.
