Count It all JOY

Once upon a time, in a land far away, there lived a happy prince who did everything just right. He never made mistakes. He did everything perfect and never disappointed anyone. Everyone loved him and he lived happily ever after.

Yes, it’s a ‘fairy tale’ life. It’s what we wish life could sometimes be like. Unfortunately, we are frail human beings who learn by making mistakes. All through our lives, we make choices, and we learn from each one. Some choices are good ones, and some get us into all kinds of trouble. Trouble does not make us very happy. Yet we long to be happy. We spend most of our lives seeking happiness. Sometimes people feel if they could just get a little more money, they would be happy. If they could just get a better job… a nicer house…. A longer vacation… or, if the kids would just behave, or if my family would be normal...or if ...and the list goes on and on. You may be making up your own list in your mind right now. We long for a better tomorrow, yet we so often spend most of our time looking at the past, wishing we had done things differently, hoping for change.

In the land of regrets...
Living in the land of regrets is an awful place to dwell. Frequently those who come to visit here end up spending the rest of their lives stuck in the mud spinning their wheels in the roadway of regret. Sometimes we find ourselves there because of worry. When we worry about things, we often say to ourselves, “What if…?” We suppose what might happen. Yet God gives us clear instructions in the world about the problem of worry. In Matthew 6:34 we are told...Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. That means we are to take life one day at a time, and God will give us just enough grace for that one day. We can never alter tomorrow, for only God knows what our tomorrows hold. I don’t need faith for tomorrow. I just need enough for today! God promised to give us our daily bread…. Not weekly bread or monthly bread. Each day He provided manna in the wilderness, just enough for that day.

When we fall into the trap of looking back and starting our “If only I …”, then we need to stop in our tracks, and remember God deals with us as forgiven children. The past, if repented of, is under the cleansing of His blood. It is remembered no more! We all make mistakes. God wants us to confess them to Him and move on. We are to deal with where we are now and stop looking back. We need to daily walk in forgiveness, even if others bring up the past to remind us again and again. We need to forgive ourselves and them. Don’t let your past keep you from your victorious tomorrow! What becomes your focus is what you become. You can choose to focus on yourself and your past, and you will find yourself living in the land of regret. God told Isaiah “Forget about what's happened; don't keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I'm about to do something brand-new…” (Is 43:18,19 The Message)
If we are so busy looking at the pain of the past, we may miss the new thing God has waiting for us. God wants to do something new and special in your life.
When you feel helpless and weak, be reminded that God works beyond you yet recognizes our human frailties and He gives us just what we need. “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” (Isaiah 40:29) He is the All Powerful One and He puts some of Himself in each of us! He wants to replace all of your regrets with His joy!

In listening to a message recently by a local pastor, he encouraged those who live in regrets to put them behind. Too often, people regret their relationships… who they married, how many kids they have. Yet God chooses to use us in the circumstances where we find ourselves. Christian maturity will cause us to love where we are. Love that unsaved spouse….be Jesus to him or her. Love those children, and teach them to love Jesus. Don’t just tell them about His love for them...be love in action! Show them by your behavior how love covers a multitude of sins. That’s what Jesus did. He did not go around pointing out everyone’s faults and failures. He just loved them where they were, and they recognized on their own their need of the Savior. He did not condemn—–He forgave!

Sometimes in the land of regret, we worry about what others think. Our fears of the opinions of others will paralyze our spiritual growth. If we are so worried about the opinions of others, we probably have a problem with pride. The Word tells us we are to humble ourselves. “ Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:6,7) Take note, that along with humbling ourselves, we are to cast our anxiety, our stress, our worries, on God. Humbling ourselves is something we must do. Others cannot do it for us. We must recognize our problem and deal with it. When we see ourselves as God sees us, we will often be amazed at all the wrong attitudes in our lives. As long as pride is resident in us, there is no room for God. We must admit our need for humility. When we can cast our cares on Him...then the joy will come.

Count it all Joy:
When bad things happen to God’s people, we sometimes struggle with trust, finding it hard to see the hand or plan of God in the situation. God often uses the most difficult of circumstances to draw us to Himself. He did it over and over to the Israelites. Only a small percentage kept their focus and trust in God. Caleb and Joshua did so and walked into the promise land. Millions of others died in the wilderness.

He is waiting for us to ask, trusting Him for our answer… “Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” (John 16:24) Even in the most trying of circumstances, as you trust in the Lord, He will bring joy into your heart. The Apostles knew this kind of joy… “in all our troubles my joy knows no bounds.” (2 Cor 7:4) and “Though they have been going through much trouble and hard times, their wonderful joy...abounded…” (2 Cor 8:2) When you know who is really in charge of it all, you can trust Him. The stress is no longer yours… it is His. You can “Count it all joy” (James 1:2) when tests and trials and temptations come your way, because now they are his tests and trials… and they are already won. He is the victor, and we have the victory! ‘Count it all joy’ does not mean that we are to be happy because we are going through tough times. It means we are to rejoice in that we are going to be better and stronger because we are going to learn from this experience. God allows the trials and ordains them to occur in all of our lives for our good. It is God stretching our spiritual ligaments. It is the very thing that will enable us to endure when greater tests come our way. Just as a moth must work its way out of the chrysalis and the baby bird must peck its way out of the egg shell in order to be strong and survive, so must we experience difficult things.

A View from the Zoo, author Gary Richmond tells about the birth of a giraffe. It has a hard start in life by dropping from its mother ten feet to the ground, falling hard on its back. Within a few seconds it rolls over into an upright position with its legs tucked under it. Suddenly, the mother giraffe does something that appears very cruel. Positioning herself over the baby, she kicks the baby, sending it sprawling. If the baby does not get up, she kicks it again until is struggles to its feet. When it is standing, she does another amazing thing—– she kicks it one more time, not because she hates it, but because instinctively she wants it to remember how to get up, to get strong to move quickly in the face of danger. Sometimes we feel like that baby giraffe, getting one kick after another. But in the midst of it all, God sees the future and is working for our good. He is making us strong.

If you are experiencing difficulties, know that God loves you and is working in your life to make you more and more like Himself. Trials are the heat God uses to purify our gold. Through them He exposes our spoiled and selfish attitudes. Your value is greatly diminished when your gold is tainted by worldly habits, ungodly attitudes, and self-centered thinking. His desire to change us causes Him to allow things that will drive us to our knees and into His presence.

Will you pass the test? Will you trust Him? Is He able to bring you through in victory? What if there were no trials, no tests? Would you need God? Would you develop patience and endurance? Count every difficulty, every test, every trial, every negative experience as a mark that God loves you, that He is working daily in your life, and desires to bring you to complete maturity and victory. Like gold – God is refining us and making us more pure, lovely and valuable. Count it all joy! He loves you!

Victim and Victor...

Everybody loves a winner… But a looser….that’s another story. You probably have met a few so-called ‘Christians’ who made loud claims, were self centered and side-tracked, thinking they had all the answers. Life is no different today that in the days of the early church. Paul had the same kind of problems. He wrote about it in 2 Timothy 3 and 4. He describes both the victimized church and the self absorbed phonies that troubled the church. Some are victims and others are victors.
Don't be naive. There are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God. They'll make a show of religion…( 2 Timothy 3:1-5 The Message Bible) He warns us not to be naïve. Yet the church today is becoming increasingly naïve. Why? Simply because they do not go to the source of truth, the Word of God. They do not keep their spiritual focus on Jesus Christ, what He came to do, and what our part involves today.
Instead it is becoming increasingly easy to follow the latest fads. It is easier to go to a seminar and reap a harvest of new ideas than to get on our knees and seek the Lord for what He wants. It is easier to jump on the band wagon of the hottest church trends, do what they are doing, hoping for the same end results. Yet in doing so, we pay a tremendously high cost! We become the thing we hate. We strive to achieve the success of others, instead of seeking the Lord God with all of our hearts. Our focus becomes wrong. We tell ourselves, that our hearts are right, we love God, want the best for His church, for our families, for our own spiritual growth, yet we find ourselves caught up in the momentum of seemly good activities that God has not called us to do. If the bottom line ends up being how many we have on Sunday and what the annual reports read… we have become the ‘self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting’ people Paul was writing to Timothy about. It is sad to say, his description deteriorates into something the body of Christ should not be identified as… ‘bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God.’ The amplified Bible puts it this way… “inflated with self-conceit. [They will be] lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than and rather than lovers of God.” We read these words and wonder how this can be a description of the church, yet it is, for in the very next verse, they are described as “For [although] they hold a form of piety (true religion),they deny and reject and are strangers to the power of it” (2 Tim 3:5) These were religious people he was talking about! They acted spiritual, but had no power. They were victims!
We who have traditionally called ourselves ‘Pentecostal’ have claimed to have a faith that is reflected in the ‘power’…. Power in our worship, power in our prayers, power in our preaching, power to do great things for God. But when the ‘power’ no longer comes from God, but from within ourselves— our man-made programs, our slick presentations— our center of ‘power’ has become corrupt. Power that emanates from self causes us to minister under false pretences. Those who are spiritual babies or spiritually immature trust that the leadership is being led of the Holy Spirit. By the time they realize something is wrong, the damage is done. How does genuine faith deteriorate into this spiritual counterfeit? How can we avoid becoming “‘bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God.’ ?
1.Stay in the Word
The strong lesson Paul wants to teach young Timothy to become a victor is to stay in the Word of God… “Stick with what you learned and believed, …..There's nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another--showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God's way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.” (3:15-17 Message) There are no short cuts to spiritual growth and power. Maturity is learned one lesson at a time from the Word of God. We may be tempted to try something we have seen others do, but God’s way is always the same… it is found in Him! If we want the breath of God blowing in our lives, we must be found devouring the Word of God. We cannot be lazy about reading it. Victors dig deep into it’s riches and find the nuggets of truth for each day. If you find you are spiritually dry, then go to the well...the Word of God. Shut out everything else and let down your bucket for a cool draught of His living water. Other things may try to entice you...good things, like Christian radio, Christian TV, books, tapes and CD’s, but the genuine comes from the Lord and His Word.
A statement I recently read in my daily devotional triggered a need for the genuine… “True godliness honors and obeys God while it’s counterfeit seeks pleasure and personal gain. One pleases the Lord; the other gratifies natural desire. Both are identified by their actions.” (David McCassland) What we do, not our intentions, is what counts. What others will see is what we do—not what we intended to do. They need to see the genuine, not counterfeit. Counterfeit comes when we begin to listen to the voices around us before we listen to God speaking to us Himself. We become victims. The best way to identify the counterfeit is to compare it with the genuine...not with another counterfeit. That means we must read, study, meditate in, devour, hunger for, and be satisfied with nothing less that the genuine Word of the Living God !
2. Stay on your knees
How can we avoid becoming victims— ‘bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God.’? All too often, those Christians who fall, do so because they failed in this area. They used to pray. They used to seek God. They used to spend time with the One they loved. But somewhere along the way, they got too busy, they got distracted, they took for granted the things of God.
Love is a relationship that must be worked at continually. It means staying in touch, talking and listening, continually coming back to that “first love.’ The moment we stray away… wander off ...with longing glances at the world, we have begun to loose that ‘first love”. But it can be restored. Restoration comes in His presence. There we discover there is no room for sin, for lust, for complacency, for counterfeit. We must repent, with a genuine repentance that causes us to change our way of doing things. Our hidden sinful habits are not hidden to Him. There in the place of intimate prayer, He speaks the truth into our hearts. He reveals the truths of His Word. He pulls back the veil and shows us what He sees in us. He desires to make every victim a victor!Our failure to repent leaves us “bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God.’“ You’ve seen them…. loud, boasting and arrogant, trying to hide the pain of the sin within. They are victims of sin and satan, often crippled by their addictions to all kinds of sin— pornography, lying, adultery, marijuana use, cigarettes, and even shopping. They fill the void within where Christ longs to be, with their addiction. And the end result is tragic. They end up with an ‘allergy’ to God. They can’t stand to be around anything that reminds them of their sin and need to repent. It results in anger, abuse, hatred and broken relationships. Guilt drives them to more addictive behavior.God has an answer, but we must be willing to do what He tells us to do. “So proclaim the Message with intensity; keep on your watch. Challenge, warn, and urge your people. Don't ever quit. Just keep it simple. You're going to find that there will be times when people will have no stomach for solid teaching, but will fill up on spiritual junk food--catchy opinions that tickle their fancy. They'll turn their backs on truth and chase mirages. But you--keep your eye on what you're doing; accept the hard times along with the good; keep the Message alive; do a thorough job as God's servant.” ( 2 Tim 4:2-5 Message)
While others may turn aside from the Word of God and His presence, we as His people are called to turn to Him, filling our souls with rich manna, not spiritual junk food. Others may ‘turn aside from hearing the truth and wander off into myths and man-made fictions.” but we are called to the Truth. Others may count on the counterfeit prophecies of ear ticklers, but I choose to count on the genuine truths found in the Bible, and in the place of prayer where He speaks to me about my life. Paul knew that these lessons would be hard. There would be resistance. To be a victor calls for persistence even in persecution and misunderstanding. It means we must sometimes reject the loudest voices around us and listen to the still small voice within us. Paul told young Timothy to “be calm and cool and steady, accept and suffer unflinchingly every hardship.” (2 Tim 4:5 Amp)
There will be times when others just don’t understand. They will be quick to judge. We must realize that each of us must give an accounting to God. We are each called to establish high levels of integrity, honesty, godliness, holiness and biblical truth. I cannot answer to God for you. You cannot answer to God for me. It is therefore imperative that we each determine to live our lives according to Biblical standards, listening intently to the voice of the Holy Spirit as He speaks to our hearts, lining it up with the Word and walking in complete obedience to Him.

Power in the Wind...

Most people who travel America’s highways today have seen the huge towers, giants in the wind, slowly turning, but generating power. Wind farms are now a common sight across America. Iowa, California, Minnesota, and even off-shore in the ocean, you can find wind farms, multiple towers with huge propellers, catching the wind, generating power to provide low cost energy to meet America’s needs for more clean energy. Those who live nearby don’t like them. They can be noisy and an eyesore, ruining the natural view of the sunset. But overall, more and more like them just because they help keep costs down, and they are a clean source of energy. Co-operatively, they provide a powerful source of energy.
I have noticed a few other qualities. They yield to the wind. They each function independently. They all function for the good of all. When there is no wind, they do not function at all. They have no purpose without the wind.
The Bible gives us a picture of the wind too. John 3:8 in the Message Bible tells us: “You know well enough how the wind blows this way and that. You hear it rustling through the trees, but you have no idea where it comes from or where it's headed next. That's the way it is with everyone "born from above' by the wind of God, the Spirit of God."
On the Day of Pentecost, in the upper room, a mighty rushing wind came into the place where disciples and others were sitting and praying in unity. It transformed the early church. Wind since that day has been a symbol of the Holy Spirit.
1. We need the Wind.
Most of my life I have had the privilege of attending churches that were filled to overflowing with the Holy Spirit. But there have been times when I have attended churches where the Wind did not blow. Somehow, the Spirit had been stifled and they went through the motions of being a church. They looked good both inside and out. They did all the right things that were expected of a church. They worked hard at being a church, but sometime, somewhere in their past, they began doing things their way instead of His way. You see, the Wind, the Holy Spirit, has personal qualities. He is not just a power. He can be offended, wounded, grieved, and turned off. We do that when we start doing things our own way instead of His way. I have often seen well meaning people take things into their own hands, frustrating the ultimate plan of God. Their own agenda’s sound nice, please people, but in the end they hurt the kingdom of God. We need the Wind. We cannot do anything in the kingdom of God without His power and His blessing.
2. We must yield to the Wind.
Power comes when we yield to the Wind. If a windmill would refuse to turn in the wind, nothing would be generated. As we allow the Wind to move us, to flow through us, to do what He was designed to do in our lives, our lives will be transformed into spiritual dynamos of power. That power is not just for our benefit. It is to flow out of us and into others who need it. It is to flow into the darkness and light a world darkened by sin. Yielding to the Wind means complete and absolute release and trust. It frees the Creator to do with us as He always planned. It frees Him to create in us a hope and a future, a purpose for being. Many folks are struggling, holding back, wondering what they are here for and where they are going. God has a purpose and a plan. It is His desire that we yield to the power of the Wind, and let Him use us to be power filled vessels He can use to change this world.
3. Unity and Wind
One of the unique characteristics of the early church was their unity. There were no denominations….There was no sense of competition….There was unity in hearts, in congregations and in their ultimate purpose. They knew they had to love one another. They learned early to work together for one purpose, to build the kingdom of God. As they kept their focus on Christ, they succeeded. As they lost their focus, and became self absorbed… they failed. Looking at the seven churches of Revelation, we learn from Ephesus, that if we lose that ‘first love’ we will be rebuked, even if we seem to be doing everything else right. If we compromise with the world, we fail. If we are unfaithful, we fail. If we are lukewarm and self absorbed, like Laodicea, we fail. If we compromise with the world, we fail.
Maintaining unity in the Christian world today is difficult. Churches everywhere seem to be grasping for the top of the heap. They don’t like competition, yet it is competition that makes them healthy and strong. Churches everywhere need to develop a healthy spirit of respect and co-operation with the rest of the body of Christ. The battle for the most dollars in the plate sadly motivates some. Others are busy climbing the ladder of success, making a ‘name’ for themselves. Too often, they forget what got them to where they are today. It was the humble saints of God who laid a foundation for their ministry in prayer, yielded to the Wind who prayed their way to ‘success.’ It was those who kept an eye on the cross as they sought out the lost in the darkness that built the church. It was men and women of God who yielded their all, expected nothing in return and loved God more than results, who left us a heritage to live up to. Unity comes with humility and the Wind. Just as each tower in a wind farm works together co-operatively to produce great electrical power, so the churches must work together for the kingdom of God.
4. Standing alone in the Wind
I remember reading in school some of the biographies of missionaries who paved the way for world missions today. There were greats such as John and Betty Stam who died as missionary martyrs in China, Adoniram Judson. Missionary to Burma who said “The prospects are bright as the promises of God."; David Brainard, who said "All my desire was the conversion of the heathen... I declare, now I am dying, I would not have spent my life otherwise for the whole world."; David Livingston said, “I am a missionary, heart and soul. God had an only Son, and He was a missionary and a physician. I am a poor, poor imitation of Him, or wish to be. In this service I hope to live; in it I wish to die!"; Hudson Taylor said “Christ is either Lord of all, or He is not Lord at all." All of these great men and women had to stand alone in the Wind. There are times when we find ourselves also standing alone in the Wind. It is easy to feel sorry for ourselves, back away, give up and go with the flow instead. But God has chosen His servants to stand alone in the Wind… Stephen...Paul...John on Patmos...and they made a difference because they did.
You may feel all alone, like no one knows or cares about your circumstances. God sees you. God knows all about you. He sees the future we cannot see. He knows the plans He has for you...a hope and a future. Look around you. You may be surprised to see others standing alone on their hill… standing tall in the Wind… moving in the power of God. Behind you is a generation who is looking for someone to look up to. Stand tall! Know whom you serve! You have purpose and power as you yield to the Wind. Let Him move you...because that is when the power flows.
You are not alone. You have the Wind all around you.
Lately I have heard of pastors who feel all alone in their struggle. They are in a spiritual battle. They need to know that you are praying for them, that you love them, that you are willing to help in any way you can. Some need words of encouragement. Others need financial help. Some need to get away for a time of rest and refreshment. The enemy of our souls will try to drag us down and he will use any means to destroy the work of God. As we face the future, not knowing what it holds, we must learn more than ever to walk in trust, in faith, with a clear vision of Christ before our eyes. He sets the pace for each of us. As He faced the greatest trials in His life, He yielded to the Father... “Not my will but Thine…” When the enemy came full force, he responded with the Word, “It is written”. When the wind fills the sails of a ship, it is empowered to move forward. The breath of God is the wind in our sails. Just as God breathed life into Adam, so today He wants to blow once again into the dust of our souls and empower us for service. There is power in the Wind! Let it blow…..

The Ministry Center News

Have you taken the TEST?

The Ministry Center is a place of learning and preparing ordinary people for extraordinary Christian service...Ministry for the Master. All last winter and spring, we worked hard, teaching, training, preparing an army of workers to go forward with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Summer was all too soon upon us, and with it came the challenging ministry of the God Mobile.
The God Mobile is a unique evangelistic tool that the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship has taken hold of the last few years. It is turning their ministry around! Why? Because it transforms pew sitters into soul winners!
The God Mobile is a simple mobile trailer, similar to what one would use at the fair grounds to sell food. However, an army of Christians man this booth inviting the fair goers at local county and state fairs to come and take a simple two question test to see if they are going to heaven or not. This intrigues this spiritually illiterate generation.
So they come, pulling their friends...Some thinking it is a joke...And others thinking maybe someone can answer those nagging questions that nobody is answering. Soon they are engrossed in checking off on a list, "I think I am going to heaven when I die....Yes...No...Maybe... Not sure..." And then "I will go to heaven because:.... I have been a good person....I have done the best I can... I go to church.... etc." They are ususally shocked to learn that all the good things they have done, according to the Bible, are not good enough to get them into heaven.
The truth that the Bible teaches is, of course, that it is not the things we do, our good works, that get us to heaven. It is what Jesus did for us and our acceptance of that by faith, repentance of our sins and turning away from the things that displease the Lord. As we share the truths taught in the Bible, basic things that most young people in this generation have never heard before, they are so ready and willing to bow their heads and pray a simple prayer of repentance, asking Christ to forgive them and come into their hearts. We are able to follow this up by giving them basic discipleship materials to help them grow in God, as well as a gospel of John, and local churches where they can find Christian friends and spiritual help.
It is so refreshing to see the spiritually hungry, coming and accepting Christ. Tears often flow down their cheeks. Thank you's abound! Entire families have come to Christ! This year alone, we have seen 1500 find Christ and forgiveness.
Perhaps you are reading this and wondering if you are ready for heaven yourself. You CAN know for sure that you are ready. God never meant it to be difficult. He made is simple enough for even a little child to come to Him. Here are some basic steps.... You can look up the Bible references in any New Testament Bible.

1. The first step is to realize that we are all sinners. The Bible tells us this in Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God...

2. Then because we are sinners, we are not welcome in heaven...BUT Christ paid our way. Romans 6:23 tells us For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

3. It is important therefore that we accept what Christ did for us... He died to pay the price for our sin. Romans 5:8 But God commendeths his love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
We do not have to clean ourselves up first...He loves us, even in our sin, so much that He died for us.

4. Our part then? It is just a simple faith, acceptance, belief, and repentance. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. That means that anyone can come to Him, no matter what you have done in the past...and He will forgive a sincere repentant heart.

5. Believe Him and then tell someone. Romans 10:9 That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. Saved? Yes, saved from despair, hopelessness, from eternity without Christ, from Hell itself...the place prepared not for people, but for Satan and demons. You don't have to go there. You have a choice. Choose Christ today!

If you want to visit the God Mobile for yourself, it will be located at the St Martin's Fair on September 4th and 5th on St. Martin Road in Franklin WI

We want to especially invite pastors and church leaders to come learn how they too can do this with their own congregations because it is transforming...not just for the sinner, but for the Christian!
