Traits of God

A Daily Thought Provoker Quote

“In our lifelong relationship with God we will experience the opposing traits of God like mercy vs judgement, peace vs anger, and grace vs finality.

In one season, we may experience our faith-filled prayers being answered and fulfilled (as-in Hebrews 11).

In the next season, we may experience our faith-filled prayers remaining UNanswered and UNfulfilled (also as-in Hebrews 11).

In both seasons, our lessons are not about ethereal and mystical doctrines and theologies. Instead we are learning to walk with God and to be faithful to Him, even as He fulfills His own will and not our own.”

Dungeons & Palaces

A Daily Thought Provoker Quote

“In Genesis 41 Joseph was a foreigner, falsely accused and imprisoned. He maintained his integrity and his faithfulness in serving God, and through a miraculous sequence of events he was elevated to be 2nd-in-Command of all of Egypt.

God can do the same with your life!

HOWEVER… what if God (in His infinite wisdom and Divine purpose) does not elevate you at all, purposefully leaving you in captivity so you can minister His love, grace, and mercy to your fellow prisoners?

What if He wants you to serve in a dungeon rather than in a palace?”

Asking for Forgiveness

A Daily Thought Provoker Quote
from Heart & Path Journal at HeartPathJournal.net
Online Publications of David J. Hall

“If we expect family and friends to forgive us 70×7 times for the sins and dysfunctions that we perpetrate upon them, then let’s remember that Jesus expects US to verbally ask for that forgiveness EACH of those 70×7 times!

We cannot remain silent AND expect to be forgiven by them. We are expected by Jesus to (1) verbally confess our failure to them EACH TIME, and then to (2) verbally ask for their forgiveness EACH TIME, as many times as we expect their forgiveness.”

( References: Matthew 18:21-22 / Luke 17:3-4 / James 5:16  )
