Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,

for his compassions never fail.

They are new every morning;

great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23

Some pastors give the subtle impression that God is doing something new and unprecedented to break strongholds in our lives and deliver us from all sorts of troubles.  It’s a special opportunity only available for a short period of time.  We only know about the opportunity because of we’re under the teaching of an especially anointed pastor, who has his antennae up and can “sense” a special movement of God.  Sometimes we risk missing out if we don’t “sow a seed” immediately.  They always talk about how God is “about” to do something.  Don’t miss it!

Anytime God is made to sound like a salesman with an opportunity that’s only available while supplies last, something is amiss.  His word says that His Mercies are new every morning.  God is Jehovah Jireh, Comforter, and Counselor.  That “special opportunity” that we’ve heard about is not rare.  It’s available to us every day – all day.

 Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns.

He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering

instead of his son.

So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide.

And to this day it is said,

“On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.”

Genesis 22:13-14

BOW is my first experience in blogging, and my writing has undergone an evolution since I started. I use If I Knew Then What I Know Now to think aloud about my Christian walk. When you read it, my hope is that WE (the BOW community & friends) then discuss how to apply God's word into our everyday lives in a practical manner. As Christian lay-theologians, we'll talk about our world, and how we can be in it but not of it. So whatever your thoughts are about what you read, PLEASE share.
