What is the Greater Currency That Goes Through Your Mind?
by Pastor Leo Carter
The lesson delineated during Open Forum comes from the book of Job, chapter 42–an epic story. Job, a righteous and wealthy man, who was sought out by the devil. The devil’s hypotheses was that Job was only serving God for things.
After chapter 38, God had to asked Job where was he when He performed His great wonders. Although there may be scoffers and naysayers, the believer cannot serve God in self-denial. In spite of what we are going through, God must be God. The mind must be stable enough to engage the will of God, and not our feelings.
Believer, the mind fluctuates and can be unstable based on the currency that flows through it. You must ask yourself, “What is the greater currency that goes through my mind?” Are your thoughts of good things; things that are reputable, pure, etc? If we are not careful, feelings will interrupt the will of God, which will inevitably dictate what you do next. When we do something based on emotions or feelings, God cannot be glorified.
The believer must have confidence in God. We must be cognoscenti of an ontologically view of how our life is moving and not rest with a practical view of processes.
Question: Is it a western culture to first expect God to stimulate with things before the mind can conceive that He can initially perform His works? Just because we don’t see it or feel it, doesn’t mean that His word is not true.
Although the believer may have s an empirical view of God, confusion cannot be mistaken for revelation. Our will must be syncopated and synchronized the will of God. Our unconscious mind cannot supersede the consciousness of God in us.
From the Cave
by Pastor Leo Carter
Praise the Lord, this is the day that the Lord has made. Today, I would like to speak to the women of God. Let me be clear and say that men are often misunderstood. If you investigate the word of God carefully, you must ask yourself, why did Elisha run into a cave from Jezebel? After all, he had just confronted fifty prophets with no fear. God asked him a question like he does with all men, why are you here what are you doing in this cave? I am not an expert on men; however, being a male for 53 years I have some experience. It’s important that we pay attention to the question God asked Elisha, what are you doing here?
Here are some reasons why men run into caves:
- fear of failure
- a sinful life
- a scornful woman
- conflict with a woman
- feeling worthless
- a controlling women
I only gave 7 things, however, there are other reasons. I have been married for 27 years–marriage works. Please understand that marriage is an institution of God, and anytime one of Gods principles are violated the marriage is headed for trouble. Loving our wives like Christ loved the church and gave his life is a very important principle. Women being submissive is equally important. Men don’t like being threaten by a man or a women, however, when it’s a women, our brain flips, or we go to the primitive part of the brain. This is what I believe Elisha did: when a man enters that part of the brain, he either fights, or takes flight. What women want to do is talk, bad move– we will talk when we are ready. If you try to force us to talk, we will think that number 7 is at work.
I pray that this will help you, by no means, is this the answer to all the problems in our marriage or with men.From the desk of Pastor Leo Carter. Join Pastor Leo at:
