Appointments to keep!
Tuesday, March 31, 2009

Exodus 16:7
And in the morning you shall see the glory of the LORD; for He hears your complaints against the LORD. But what are we, that you complain against us?”

We all carry appointment calendars. Some of us have day planners. A few even have assistants to help them sort out their appointments and tasks. Why all the fuss? So we can stay on task and keep our appointments. We don't want to miss out on anything or anyone that would help improve our lives. Neither do we want to disppoint anybody who wants to meet with us.

That said, does it seem like a good idea to put God at the top of our appointment list? Of course it does. He's the most important person in the world to us, and His plans for us are the most important tasks. Seek God and what He wants for us every day, and to help us remember, put His name in your appointment book. That's one daily meeting you don't want to miss.

This week is the best chance, let us make an appointment with God in the daily morning/evening prayer meetings. :)

Settle for Best!
Monday, March 30, 2009

When you feel like settling for less than the best, think about what God wants for you.

There will come a day when we realize that God wants more for us than we could possibly want for ourselves. Maybe we've come to that day already, but if not, here's what will happen. As we focus on God daily by reading His word and talking with Him through prayer, we are going to gain a greater appreciation for who God is and what His will is for us each day. We will recall what God has done in every detail of our life as we eagerly learn how God wants to build our character and use us to impact the lives of others.

At that point we will realize that God doesn't just want us to "get by" each day. He wants us to live our life fully here on earth while we anticipate the amazing life waiting for us in heaven.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Avoiding Temptation!
Sunday, March 29, 2009

You are less likely to fall into temptation if you don't walk along the edge.

We all struggle with temptation. When we yield to it, we usually blame it on our weakness. But it's not always a matter of weakness. Sometimes it is just a matter of plain stupidity. We stupidly put ourselves in the path of temptation when we could have avoided it altogether.

Start being smart about resisting temptaion. If you know that you are having difficulty with a particular sin, then arrange the circumstances of your life so that you aren't confronted with the temptation as often. Decide ahead of time what you won't do, where you won't go, and what you won't watch. You might even have to disassociate with a few "friends" who are leading you into trouble.

The hardest time to resist temptation is when we are knee-deep in it. It's just a lot easier to stay away from it to begin with.

James 4:7
Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Start the Ignition!
Saturday, March 28, 2009

The next time you feel weak in the knees, try using them to pray.

Prayer is a powerful tool because it activates the power of God in your life. God is always with us through the presence of the Holy Spirit, but He won't unleash His power unless we ask Him to, and the way we ask is through prayer (John 16:24). Think if our life as a car (We choose what kind of car we want to be). God is the engine that powers us, and the Holy Spirit is the fuel. But unless we turn on the ignition by praying, we are going to sit there, nice to look at, but going nowhere. Prayer is like the spark that ignites the Holy Spirit to drive God's power.

Oh, and there's one more aspect to our illustration. We'll need a road map to tell us where we need to go. That would be the Bible - God's personal atlas for our life. Don't leave home without it.

Divine Design!
Friday, March 27, 2009

Don't make plans and then ask for the Lord's approval. Ask God to direct your planning.

Teenagers quickly learn that it is easier to ask forgiveness than to ask permission. If they ask for permission first, their request may be denied. So they go ahead and do what they want, and they are later prepared to say: "I am sorry. I didn't know I shouldn't have done that."

If we are honest with ourselves, we often take the same approach with god. We make our own plans for what we want, and we leave God totally out of the planning process. After all of the choices have been made, then we involve God by asking Him to "bless" what we have already decided to do.

Don't treat God like a magic wand that we wave over our plans. Involve Him in the decisions of our life at the very beginning. Let Him direct you (instead of the other way round).

Get on the plane!
Thursday, March 26, 2009

Its' one thing to have faith and another matter entirely to act on your faith.

Our faith becomes meaningful to us and effective for our salvation only when we have faith in God. But what if we never act on that faith? How meaningful and effective is it then? Look at it this way. Lets's say we made a reservation to fly to Hawaii. When the day for our flight arrives, we drive to the airport, check in, and walk to our gate. But rather than taking our seat on the plane, we sit in the airport and watch the plane take off. Then we turn to some guy next to us and say, "Hey, you see that plane? I have a reservation for that flight. My reservation is going to Hawaii."

Our faith in God is like that reservation to Hawaii. Just as we fulfill our reservation to Hawaii by getting on the plance, we fulfill our faith in God by getting with His plan. (Eph 2:10).

Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. (James 2:17)

Personality Test
Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Your view on yourself:
You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:
You like serious, smart and determined people. You don't judge a book by its cover, so good-looking people aren't necessarily your style. This makes you an attractive person in many people's eyes.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:
You prefer to get to know a person very well before deciding whether you will commit to the relationship.

The seriousness of your love:
Your have very sensible tactics when approaching the opposite sex. In many ways people find your straightforwardness attractive, so you will find yourself with plenty of dates.

Your views on education: You may not like to study but you have many practical ideas. You listen to your own instincts and tend to follow your heart, so you will probably end up with an unusual job.

The right job for you:You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life.

How do you view success:You are afraid of failure and scared to have a go at the career you would like to have in case you don't succeed. Don't give up when you haven't yet even started! Be courageous.

What are you most afraid of:You are afraid of having no one to rely on in times of trouble. You don't ever want to be unable to take care of yourself. Independence is important to you.

Who is your true self:You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.

took this personality test from Vera's blog!


If you expand the truth, your credibility contracts.

We know we shouldn't lie, but there are circumstances in life when the truth may seem irrelevant. Is absolute honesty required at all times? Are we obligated to limit our promises to the ones we actually intend to keep? Must we restrict our comments to those that are entirely truthful?

The culture in Jesus' time was so accustomed to making false statements that people would often "swear" to be telling the truth. They assumed that taking an oath of honesty would give greater credibility to their statements. Jesus...taught that integrity and truth have only one level (Matt 5:33-37).

Our word should be enough. Jesus wants our words to be truthful in every conversation. Honesty, integrity, and truthfulness should be more than mere concepts for us. God wants us to put them into practice, and He wants them to be defining characteristics of our life.

Handling the different people in work!
Tuesday, March 24, 2009

Have been always quite afraid of this particular manager in my office cause he is in operations de so he talk louder...then today he intercom up to say why his surveyor no camera, saying why i no spare camera, i told him the spare camera is in the repair centre and i have chasse the people there...he talk quite loud so i still quite scared of him...but later he came up to explain he always check the works of his surveyors...got 1 surveyor is slower so he questioned him, the surveyor say cause he no camera, pushing blame to us, then the manager say he believe maybe the surveyor is slower but by saying he no camera, the manager cannot corner him in questioning, he explain it in a very nice tone and softer...sometimes i guess its just our own mind, he might not be that scary after all, i saw the fun side of him before...hee....


When God gives us forgiveness, Satan gives us guilt.

There is a fine line between sorrow and guilt. Both emotions can spring from doing something wrong. But the consequences of these 2 emotions cn be drastically different.

God wants us to be sorry when we have done something wrong. Sincere sorrow is part of the process of repentance. It means we regret what we have done and don't want to do it again. With this type of attitude, God can turn our life around and get us back on the right track.

Satan, on the other handm wants us to fo far beyond sorrow. He wants us to feel guilty, and he uses gulit as an oppresive emotion. It will make our conscience heavy and our focus introspective. Guilt ignores the very reason why Jesus died for us: Forgiveness.

The next time we regret our actions, thank God. Our sorrow is a sign that Jesus is alive and active in our life.

Love before First Sight!
Monday, March 23, 2009

God loved us long before we loved Him.

Hollywood movie producers know that the romantic notion of "love at first sight" makes for a good love story. In real life, however, it is nothing more than "attraction at first sight." Real love requires knowing a person.

God didn't love us at first sight, because He actually loved us long before we were bron. In fact, He loved us before He created the world. Since before the beginning of time, God knew all about us. He has known all along the kind of person we would be. Even though He has known forever all of our weaknesses He has loved us from then until now.

Don't ever think that God loves us because we have decided to love Him. Our love definitely pleases Him, but He is not reciprocating our affection. God has been loving us and awaiting our affection throughout history. That is what a love story should be.

God's Whisper!
Sunday, March 22, 2009

If you are not hearing the voice of God,
your life may be too busy.

People often wonder if God ever speaks in a voice we can hear. Absolutely. There are times when God speaks through other people in order to tell us something. And sometimes God will speak directly to us. So how do we listen to the voice of God?

If we want to hear God's voice, the first thing we need to be is quiet. God won't shout above the cacophony of our lives. As the prophet Elijah discovered, God comes quietly whn we least expect Him. God told Elijah to meet Him "on the mountain' (1 Kings 19:11). As Elijah waited, there was a mighty windstorm, an earthquake, and a fire, but the Lord wasn't in any of those. He came to Elijah in " a gentle whisper."

God will come to us in a gentle whisper,too - in our thoughts and in our heart. But we'll never hear God's voice unless we turn off the noise.

Our Family!
Saturday, March 21, 2009

1 John 4:7
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

Hospitality is often defined as the display of thoughtfulness to strangers and guests. But having guests over the dinner is only part of the hospitality - the easy part. The more challenging aspect of hospitality happens after the door shuts when the visitors leave: Can our family treat each other with the same attention and respect that is reserved for special visitors?

We are often more kind to strangers and friends than we are to the members of our family. The "outsiders" get the best part of us, while the people in our own household get the worse part of us. There's an old saying that goes, "Familarity breeds contempt," but it doesn't have to be true just because it is old.

Here is another old saying:"I command you to love each other" (John 15:17) When Jesus said these words, He didn't exclude those with whom we share a bathroom and a refrigerator.

Grab the Towel!
Friday, March 20, 2009

Be more concerned about the task to be performed by you than the title to be conferred upon you.

Remember the story of Jesus washing the feet of the disciples! (John 13:1-11) It was the custom to wash the feet of guests who had been traveling on the dusty road. The disciples weren't doing the job, so Jesus got busy and did the task Himself. What makes this incident so ironic is that the disciples had been arguing earlier about which of them was to be the "greatest" in God's Kingdom. While they were worried about a title, Jesus grabbed the towel.

We can't be too critical of the disciples, because we make the same mistake. We are so anxious to be important, to be noticed, and to have prestige. We are thinking so much about our own image that we overlook the needs of others.

Let Jesus be our example. Forget about our own self-importance and focus on the needs of others. Be looking for ways that we can be helpful!

Do what is Good!
Thursday, March 19, 2009

Motivation can fade.
Habits prevail.

Every now and then, we need to hear a great motivational sermon. It can really recharge out spiritual batteries. But we must avoid becoming a motivational junkie - the kind of person who has to be hyped up emotionally before they can keep on going. If we become dependent on motivational sermons, we will fail miserably in our spiritual life. (We will get weary of the emotional roller coaster. And after a while, all of the sermons will sound the same.)

Instead of depending on someone else to fire us up, get busy helping others. Do it regularly. Make it a part of our life. When "doing good" for others is a habit in our life, then we will find that it happens regardless of our emotions. We will find that we are doing these things because they are rewarding (not just because some eloquent speaker psyched us into it).

Yesterday went out with Yolanda and Germaine to have prata...yummy...i had a plaster prata and a cheese egg mushroom prata...then we talk bout SOT...yo is going to SOT this year...so i begin to talk bout my experience..How God have brought me through...

Keep the Truth Together!

Proverbs 10:9
He who walks with integrity walks securely,
But he who perverts his ways will become known.

Telling the truth has become a lost art. Its not that we are out there telling lies (although there is plenty of that going on). We are just not telling "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth." We sort of sneak up on the truth, circle the truth, tell part of the truth, but don't come right out and tell the whole truth. We give out just enough information to keep us out of trouble, but not enough to honor God.

When God asks us to be truthful, He isn't suggesting that we pick out the parts that make us look good. He wants us to deal in the whole truth. That's what it means to have integrity: to be "whole." If you want to be a person of integrity, don't break the truth into pieces. Keep it together, even if it invites criticism.

Little is much if God is in it!
Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Zechariah 4:10
For who has despised the day of small things?
For these seven rejoice to see
The plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.
They are the eyes of the LORD,
Which scan to and fro throughout the whole earth.”

Many people treat the small stuff in life as if no one - not even God - has any control over what happens. We call it "fate" or talk about how we are "lunky" or "fortunate" when certain things happen or don't happen.

If we are like most people who only tend to ask for God's involvement only in times of major need or crisis, consequently we miss out on the joy and wonder of watching God work in the small stuff of our life. There is no question God is in the big events, but He delights in working in the details.

    Revelation of Phil 3:13-14
    Friday, March 13, 2009

    With the help of other reference book and the Holy Spirit, here is a littel revelation I received..

    Phil 3:13-14

    13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

    1. I do not count myself to have apprehended
      Paul knew that he had not apprehended the final situation. He did not consider any situation as the end; it was not finished for Paul.
      When faced with a crisis, it's human nature to think we are finished, that it's the end and we can't do anything about it. We put finality to something that is not final. When we face a challenge, remember, there is always tomorrow.
      The devil is most afraid of our momentum. He is less concerned about the individual victories that we may have than a life of victory. Satan is concerned when we keep going after him, building one victory on top of another. He knows that when we get the momentum going, we'll roll him flat.
      The problem is that when we hit Satan, we lay down. We hit him, and then we lay down. We don't build momentum by going from strength to strength. God calls us to be an overcomer and momentum is a vital tool in gaining the total victory. Never be afraid of getting up when we fall and don't let disappointment to get into our heart.

    2. but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind
      Let go of those things that are in the past and forget what's behind us. If we live in the past we'll never have a future. The future is in front of us, so Paul says to forget those things that are behind.
      Disappointments will bind us up if we live in yesterday. We must do some forgetting because disppointments prevent faith from rising up inside of us.
      Remembering the past takes us away from the miracle that God wants to give us today. This is a new day. God can do it for us today.Ler go of the past.

    3. forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead
      When we reach forth, we are reaching forward to those things that are before. When we stretch ourselves to reach for those things that are behind, we are kept in a rhythm of disppointment that eats up what little faith we have. we must reach forward to the things that are before, things that we have not yet
      - reached
      - gotten
      - happened
      Reaching for the things that are before, not the things that already exit activates faith. That's how we stay free from disappointment and have the tree of life come alive inside of us. Reach for the things that have not yet happened. If we cannot see it, it doesn't mean that it is not there.

    4. I press toward the goal
      We must press on in assertive and deliberate action. Pressing on means using force and pressing forward again. Keep going forward, and don't fo backward.
      Ofteh when disppointment comes, people go backward in retreat. However, when we face a challenge or difficulty, God wants us to press onward. Keep moving forward!
      If we have a need in our life, it's time to go forward and press on to victory. Victory is never behind us; it's always before us. Paul refused to look back and we must do the same. Press on.

    5. I press toward the goal
      Paul had a goal or standard which he moved. It was not a standard set by himself or any other man. It was a standard set by God. He kept his eyes on God's standards.
      Any standard we set will bring disappointment. We must keep our eyes on God and His standard. Pursue whatever God has shown us earnestly and with dilligence.
      We must press on toward the goal. The goal toward which Paul pressed on was Heaven, that's why he could never be disppointed. Remember what Paul said "For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain" (Phil 1:21).
      Regarding the world as our home will always cause dissatisfaction with life. Paul's motto was, in essence, "You can take everything away from me, even my own life. When I see Christ it is gain to me." Keep pressing on toward the goal.

    6. the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus
      Paul pressed toward the mark of his callling in Christ Jesus. He kept his eyes on the prize, what he would get when he crossed the finish line and the tape was broken.
      Do we serve ambition, the things of this world, our career, denominations, organiztions, positions, or do we serve God. Imagine what we would be like if we kept our eyes firmly fixed on the calling God has placed in us - the call to heaven.
      Fear is replaced by determination, procrastination is replaced by action, and timidity is replaced by fearlessness. When God take hold of our life so that our hear burns for Christ and Christ alone, there will be no difference between the first century church and the twenty-first century church.
      God has set His hand to use His church mightily in these last days. God is pouring out His Spirit around the world and igniting Christians with passion and zeal like that of the first century church. Signs, wonders, and miracles are becoming more and more common as God manifests His power and presence. Take hold of God today. We are a vital link in His plan for the world to know Christ.

    Common Sense for 2009
    March 10, 2009

    The Bible says in Prov. 4:7, that “in all our getting, get understanding,” which is really nothing more than “anointed common sense.” I came across a piece of advice Warren Buffet gave to his shareholders for 2009. I was amazed by the simplicity and common sense found in his approach toward basic management of money. This is what Buffet said:

    “We begin this New Year with dampened enthusiasm and dented optimism. Our happiness is diluted and our peace is threatened by the financial illness that has infected our families, organizations and nations.

    Everyone is desperate to find a remedy that will cure their financial illness and help them recover their financial health. They expect the financial experts to provide them with remedies, forgetting the fact that it is these experts who created this financial mess.

    Every new year, I adopt a couple of old maxims as my beacons to guide my future. This self-prescribed therapy has ensured that with each passing year, I grow wiser and not older. This year, I invite you to tap into the financial wisdom of our elders along with me, and become financially wiser.

    * Hard work: All hard work bring a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.

    * Laziness: A sleeping lobster is carried away by the water current.

    * Earnings: Never depend on a single source of income. [At least make your investments get you second earning.]

    * Spending: If you buy things you don’t need, you’ll soon sell things you need.

    * Savings: Don’t save what is left after spending; spend what is left after saving.

    * Borrowings: The borrower becomes the lender’s slave.

    * Accounting: It’s no use carrying an umbrella, if your shoes are leaking.

    * Auditing: Beware of little expenses; a small leak can sink a large ship.

    * Risk-taking: Never test the depth of the river with both feet. [Have an alternate plan ready.]

    * Investment: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

    I’m certain that those who have already been practicing these principles remain financially healthy. I’m equally confident that those who resolve to start practicing these principles will quickly regain their financial health.”

    There is truly no short-cut to success. We all need to remind ourselves of these back-to-basic principles of life, wisdom and common sense.

    Let Go of the Past and Start Living For Today
    Tuesday, March 03, 2009

    How many Christians, do you think, are still hanging onto wounds of the past? But how can we be Christians when we have not given up the past life of who we once were? Don’t we have to be reborn a new person to become a Christian? That’s what the bible tells us.

    So my brothers, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit to God. Romans 7:8

    Some Christians still have battle scars from the past that have never gone away. When we keep the hurt within our attitude we keep chipping away at it every single day and it never heals. We can’t seem to let the past go – we want to keep bringing up the hurt and it keeps us from truly acknowledging Christ for our life. We shouldn’t allow our past to determine our future.

    The truth is if we want a happy and fulfilled life we need to give up the past and allow God to bring in today. But today will never come if we keep wallowing in what was. What was is something that hurt us deeply but is now dead and buried. If you are alive in Christ you can’t bring what is dead with you –you must leave it behind where it belongs or either stay buried with it.

    Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-29

    Sometimes it can be difficult to let go of the emotional pangs of the past, but without moving away from those past pangs, we remain stunted spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. How can we move on if mentally were still hurting? How can we move on if emotionally we don’t know what we want or need? How can we move on if spiritually we are lost?

    Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you – unless, of course, you fail the test? II Corinthians 13:5

    Let the past go! Say, “Bye, bye past life, hello new life!” Let your mind be renewed with Christ’s Spirit and be transformed. God wants you to be created a new person in Him. Let go of the old self so the new self can be ushered in. God heals our wounds when we truly let Him into our hearts and minds and allow Him to take over in our life.

    To be made new in the attitude of your minds, and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4:23

    Let’s start living for today! Did you know when we are harboring hurt we let our past decide what we will do with today? We really do! Do you think God is happy with how we are living our life? God does not want us to be unhappy, always guarding ourselves from being hurt again. If we are afraid to love others, and to give of ourselves, then we will never be happy in this life. Only when we decide to let go of the past will we be able to live to our potential in the Lord. Put your trust in God.
    He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

    If we are depressed, lonely, angry, addicted, or living our life in bitterness then these things are controlling who we are in Christ. They literally keep us from becoming the person that God created us to be. These things are the symptoms of a pain we won’t give up, and it is how we allow the past to dictate our life today. We ease the hurt through these temporary vices and emotions and remain in our own little world where no one else can come in and hurt us ever again.

    But the truth is without God we are more vulnerable to these vises. The big bad Spirit likes to keep us living in our sins, depressions and addictions, that way we can’t mature spiritually and accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. They keep us from having a relationship with Jesus! As long we remain spiritually stunted we won’t find salvation because we are literally starving for spiritual insight and wisdom. This is what living in our past does to us. We must let go of the past and start living for today!

    Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27

    God have been dealing with me a lot of my emotions, things of the past, having a hard time. but i thank God for Minghui, she is the 1st leader i can just come transparent with. i wrote her a letter regarding my past - the hurts and failed relationships and things which had happened...i was crying when i wrote the letter...i dunno y suddenly all these came back to my mind...but i know until i deal with all these and move on...i am not ready for a new relationship or even be a connect group leader..have been struggling a lot...came across this book and i am reading it...it is very useful for me at this point of time...below are some abstracts from the book...

    What is recovery? It is being able to reflect upon your past and how it contributed to your identity, both positive and negative, without allowing the negative to control your present life. Recovery is finding new meaning to your life by ridding yourself of the contamination of the past. It means claiming your circumstances instead of letting your circumstances claim your happiness.

    Backsliding occurs because we are bent on following our desires, rather than God's guidelines. The end result is clear.

    Although God and Satan use the same channels, they have different intention...God knits the spriti,soul and body in harmony and balance. Satan creates discord between the three areas. God offers faith, which is based in hope and love. Satan offers fear, which only brings discouragement and defeat.

    Ephesians 6:13-17 (New King James Version)
    13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;

    The first thing to understand from these verses is that Jesus is our armour. He is our defence. We no longer have to find ways of defending ourselves, we have to implement all that He has provided. There are three pieces of armour which were given at our conversion. According to the verse, we have put on the belt of truth, put on the breastplate of righteousness, and put on shoes of readiness that comes from peace.

    The Belt of Truth. We are to align ourselves with the word of God. The Bible tells us that Jesus is the saem yesterday, today and tomorrow. Knowing that God loves us and is on our side means that we can trust Him and what is written in the Bible. We need this strong base of support to withstand the schemes of Satan.

    The Breastplace of Righteousness. We do not stand on our own merits. We never did. The breastplate enables us to stand because of the righteousness of Jesus. He is our grounding before God. The breastplate protects us from those emotions which challenge our standing before God -- self condemnation or pride.

    The Shoes of Peace. Peace is a natural result of standing on the merits of Christ. Our trust is in Him and He will not fail us. Circumstances may not have changed, and temptation may not have ceased, but this peace passes all understanding. Peace in our heart enables us to stand.

    Qualifications For Leadership

    Qualifications For Leadership
    1 Mar 2009

    They shall be holy to their God and not profane the name of their God, for they offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and the bread of their God; therefore they shall be holy. <Leviticus 21:6>

    The call to spiritual leadership is a great privilege and honor. There were 12 conditions given for the selection of priests:

    (1) No man who is blind. You have to be a person of vision and revelation. A leader leads from the front. If you don’t know what God is saying and where He is taking you, you can’t be a leader in the house of the Lord.

    (2) No man who is lame. God is holy. If you are not walking uprightly with the Lord, you can’t be His leader.

    (3) No man with a flat nose (KJV). In the Bible, the nose symbolizes spiritual discernment. A leader has to be a discerner of people’s hearts (Heb. 5:14).

    (4) No man with any limb too long. This speaks of those who are unbalanced in doctrine or those who have added teachings that are not of God. Such people would lead Christians astray.

    (5) No man with a broken foot. Proverbs 25:19 talks about an unfaithful man as a person with a broken foot. A leader has to be reliable and trustworthy.

    (6) No man with a broken hand. Such a priest can’t carry the vessels of the Lord in the tabernacle. His services would be faulty. A leader must have the ability to serve God well.

    (7) No man who is a hunchback. A leader must be able to shoulder burdens. He must have a steely backbone to carry the weight of the ministry.

    (8) No man who is a dwarf. Someone who is immature and stunted in his spiritual growth can’t be a leader in God’s house.

    (9) No man with a defect in his eye. Jesus talks about being single-eyed (Matt. 6:22, KJV). Being focused and determined to fulfill the vision of the Lord is a leadership qualification.

    (10) No man with scurvy (KJV). This person is not properly nourished in his life. A leader has to feed on daily manna from heaven—the Word of God.

    (11) No man with a scab. You can’t be a leader if your life is not spotless and without blemish. A leader of God must have proven character and a good reputation.

    (12) No man who is a eunuch. A leader in God’s house must have the capacity to produce life and bring forth fruit.

    "You are the light of the world. let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
    Matthew 5:14,16
