Build the ark.

Build the ark.

Is God asking you to do something big?  To step out in blind faith?  You might feel like Noah, asked to build a ridiculously giant boat during a dry spell - with no water in sight.  And you begin the work of building your boat, in a drought, because the God of the universe told you to believe Him and build.

I love this picture.  Jesus looks so... normal.  Like I could grab a grande-decaf-soy-sugar-free-vanilla-latte with him at Starbucks and he might even make fun of me for it.  And then I could talk to him about life - you know, like you do when you are catching up with a good friend.

The little girl was pointing to the young blonde girl in the middle picture.  "Do you think she's sexy?" she asked.  "I think she's sexy."  The young boy looked at the ad carefully.  "I don't think she's sexy.  SHE's sexy."  He pointed to the mom in the middle, and also to the young blonde girl on the top.  I couldn't believe I was watching two children rate the "sexiness" of females.  But the next thing that happened shocked me even more than their conversation.

Fear no evil. Part 2.

Fear no evil.  Part 2.

There is a war going on in the spiritual realm, and we have a very real enemy.  Satan would like to keep us living a stunted and powerless life, steeped in fear and doubt and despair.  But we have been given power and authority in the name of Jesus.  We don’t have to cohabitate with fear.  

Fear no evil.

Fear no evil.

The reality is, the news right now has a lot of scary headlines.  If you let him, Satan will use them to manipulate you into believing that you can’t even leave your house without running into terror.

But Jesus didn't save us from death so we could be bound by the fear of death.

“You don’t have to be a super woman, you just need to be supernatural”

This quote came across my Instagram a few weeks ago.  It was from Christine Caine, a gifted bible teacher and one of the most prophetic female voices of this generation.
