God's Roadmap

Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground (Psalm 143:10 NASB).

The Filter of Grace

I have already talked about hearing God through the filter of religion. Man-made rules and traditions limit what God can do through us and for us because we don't hear what He is really saying. We listen through tainted spiritual ears.

Grace is God's unlimited supply of love, healing, prosperity, wholeness, mercy, and deliverance. Grace is Jesus.

He is a gift given to us through no effort of ours because we couldn't obtain anything from God no matter how much we tried. Also, because He has given all things of Himself to us, we cannot stop Him from giving. We can only refuse to receive.

God's Word came to us untainted, unfiltered, and eternal. He doesn't change, so what He said to the early church still applies to His church today. His grace is ours so we can live abundant lives and spread His goodness to the world.

Read the Bible as if you have never read it before. Forget about what you learned in Sunday School or heard someone else say over the  years. Start over with a fresh slate.

What do you hear?
