What’s Your Perspective?

The world we live in is desperate for us to see it’s point of view.  When is the last time you sat back to think about your perspective and how it affects your daily life? How much do you think our perspective influences our life?

Our perspective shapes our life. We develop our view of life through our family, our beliefs, our life experiences, our education, our work, and our community. That is why there are so many options and opinions surrounding us in our daily life. It is a beautiful thing!   God created each of us to experience and live life abundantly with freedom in Christ.

Our personal view is shaped by numerous factors.   When we add and subtract these factors our lens of life will be altered and in some cases it will by changed completely.   Consider this analogy. If we go to see a 3D movie without the proper glasses our view and experience will differ from those who have the proper 3D glasses.

Both will see the same movie but will have had a different experience based on which glasses they were viewing the movie through. Those who watched without the 3D glasses had a limited view and didn’t get to experience the power of the 3D movie experience. Can you see the power of perspective emerging?

A person’s perspective influences the freedom they experience in life. How does our view relate to freedom? Sometimes we develop limiting beliefs that will cloud our view and altar our perspective, which cause us to have a limited view like the people without the 3D glasses.   We make decisions of what to do and not to do based on our perspective. Basically, our choices in life are all filtered through our perspective. That is powerful! I challenge all of us to take inventory of why we have the perspectives we have.

I shared earlier in Tuesday Tidbit posts that I am doing a group study on Stormie Omartian’s book “Prayer Warrior”.   Recently, she challenged the group to consider our limiting beliefs about prayer and change our perspective in prayer. I want to share her insights and the response it lead me to for my life.

Here it is: “God wants to do miracles through us, but too often we either don’t pray for them, or don’t believe they can happen, or when they do happen we have trouble believing it.” Those words by Omartian jumped off the page at me. I can relate to each of those “too often” statements. What about you?

I want to put my “don’ts” behind me and be looking for the “do believe” opportunities.   I do believe God can do and does miracles. Yet I’m not initiating the prayer to release the power God intends to shower down through answered prayers. That is a limiting belief I need to bust right through. She points out that the enemy (the devil) wants to keep us from praying for miracles. He throws thoughts or darts of doubt and discouragement when prayers don’t seem to be answered and aims to detract and discredit miracles that do happen.   The devil tried to discredit the miracle of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead (John 12:10).   Then he began his, long-standing discredit campaign, to discourage the belief in the miracle of Jesus being raised from the dead (Matthew 28:11-13).

Have we experienced a miracle that the enemy wants us to write off as a coincidence? Are we struggling to believe enough to pray for a miracle?   God’s word tells us to ask for faith and He will give it to us (Matthew 7:7-8).   Prayer doesn’t require us to be specific in how our prayer will be answered it just requires faith that God is powerful enough to answer our prayers in His way and in His timing. His way is far better than anything that we can ever dream of because He is the one who can create something out of nothing; “—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.” (Romans 4:17b)

God’s powerful perspective: that is what we need to ask for and embrace as our personal perspective. Then we will truly walk in the power and freedom of our life in Christ.

Call to Action:

Now I will ask you the question I asked my class a few weeks ago.

“What miracles is the Lord asking us to release to His power?”

In class we responded with a written prayer card that we each placed in our “Trust in the Lord” box.   I told them I would mail them back to them as a reminder in the future. I can’t wait to hear God’s miraculous answer in their life!

I brought the box home and set in on a table in my living room thinking I would move it to my office later.   Well it still remains there. Why, because I now pray many times a day as I pass by our

“Trust the Lord” box believing for the miracles He is going to do.

Let’s add your “miracle prayer” to the box.   Just leave me a private comment below (just write private prayer and it will not post). Your comment can be a brief word to represent your miracle prayer or an actual prayer that I will print out and put in an envelope for you– your choice. You can even add your address if you want me to mail it back to you at a later date.

I would love the privilege of joining you in believing God for your miracle. He is the God of miracles!!! It’s springtime; we have His miracles unfolding right outside our door everyday.

Music is a source of peace and reflection for me. I have included links to two songs for encouragement as you believe and pray!

Engaged in Prayer

Engaged in prayer.  Does that statement describe our prayer life?  What do you think it looks like to be engaged in prayer?  What does it mean for us to be engaged in prayer?

I was challenged with a new way of looking at prayer engagement in the current Bible Study I’m doing Prayer Warrior by Stormie Omartian.

According to Webster’s Dictionary the root word engage “is an offering of one’s life or aim as backing to a cause or aim.”  It further adds the following additional descriptions:  “to entangle or entrap;  to attract and hold by influence or power; to interlock with; to bind oneself to do something; to hold attention; to enter into battle.”    I took the time to share the definition because it adds insight to our quest for answers about  being engaged in prayer.

Praying as a prayer warrior is to be engaged in prayer.  It is a commitment followed by action.    The sole purpose of one’s action is serving God which makes them an instrument of releasing His power for His will to be done.  The prayers of a prayer warrior go beyond our personal experiences and ask the Lord what else would you have me pray for.

Of course prayer is a personal thing and most are very uncomfortable with their prayer ability.   Too often we will not pray or stop praying because we judge our prayers based on what we see and feel.   I love this point that Omartian made.  She said, “God sees your heart that you are willing to pray. ”  He is not judging your prayers.  Be encouraged because we might never know the full extent of the good our prayers have done or will accomplish, but God does!

So the next time you pray remember these two important points prayer warrior:

1.  Your God hears all your prayers.

2.  Your God is answering all your prayers in His way an His timing.

Watch out when you are engaged in prayer your relationship with the Lord becomes more engaging!

2 Corinthians 4:7

“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”

Tuesday Tidbit- Growing in Prayer

I have the privilege of leading a weekly woman’s Bible study.  We are currently going through Stormie Omartian’s book and study guide “Prayer Warrior”.    I don’t think many people regularly put these two words together, so it might seem like a strange book title to you.  Either way  I hope you will grow in prayer with me as I share how I’m growing in this study.

In the first chapter Stormie shares why our attitude toward prayer needs to be deeper than the basic morning, night time, and meal time prayers.  Life as a follower of Christ places us in the middle of a unseen battle that calls us to live as prayer warriors in Christ’s army. The apostle Paul writes about this battle in the book of Ephesians and goes into detail of our response in Ephesians 6:10 -18.  Where he describes the Armor of God we are given and the two weapons his warriors are given the sword of the Spirit(the word of God) and prayer guided by the Spirit (Ephesians 6:18).   If you are not familiar with Ephesians 6 take some time to read it.  I believe it is foundational for recognizing the battle of good and evil is real and continues daily.

Do believe there is an devil?  Do you believe he has plans for the destruction of you and your loved ones?  The most dangerous position to be in a battle is in-between two fighting forces- the impact zone.  We can find ourself there when we live our life in blissful ignorance.  Choosing to ignore the warning signs that we are entering a danger zone.  Please don’t ignore this sign today.  Step into the protected zone.  You might still be wondering what is a prayer warrior?

Stormie defines it as a person who “has a heart of compassion for suffering people and bad situations, and desires to do something to make a difference.”  The heart of a prayer warrior fulfills Galatians 6:2 “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”  It is a person who prays for others using the truth of God’s Word lead and prompted by the Holy Spirit.  Here are Seven questions from “Prayer Warrior” that  Stormie proposes as insights into the heart of of prayer warrior.

Do you have the heart of a prayer warrior:

  1. See suffering and it bothers you?
  2. Recognize evil proliferating the world?
  3. Experienced injustice in your life or identify it in the lives of others?
  4. Observe wrong things happening around you and want to right them?
  5. Have certain people heavy on your heart and it concerns you but are unsure why?
  6. Observe tragic situations happening to others and feel helpless to to anything to stop it?
  7. Become grieved in your spirit when you see blatant disregard for God and His ways?

If you said “yes” to any of the questions you have the heart of a prayer warrior.  Are you surprised?   I’m not, I think because as God’s children, who are being transformed into Christ’s image we can’t help but have heart of prayer warrior.  Christ was a prayer warrior in John 17:6 -26 he prays for his followers both current and yet to come.  I don’t know about you but I think it is pretty clear we all have a role a prayer warrior.  The question is will we answer the call?

When we say “yes Lord I am willing to be your prayer warrior” we are taking a step closer to the Lord so we can hear his heartbeat.  I hope you are taking that step.  I know it is a scary one.  It might be overwhelming because you don’t feel prepared or ready to pray in this new way.   We can grow together.  Keep meeting me here as I share insights from my experience and the book.

Call to Action:

Read Ephesians 6: 10 -18

What verse stands out to you today?

Who or what are you burdened to pray for today?

Personalize this scripture as a prayer for you today:

Prayer adapted from Ephesians 6: 10-12; 18

” Lord help me be strong in You Lord and in Your mighty power.  Remind me to daily put on the full armor of God, so that  I can take my stand against the devil’s schemes.  For my struggle’s are not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, again the powers of the dark world and again the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”  “Please Lord teach me to pray according to your Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  Keep me alert and always praying for the Lord’s people.”  In Jesus precious name, Amen

Week #39 Romans 12:11-12

Romans 12:11-12

“Never be lacking in zeal , but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”

As followers of Christ we best represent our Savior when our life is lived out with zeal and spiritual fervor as Paul shares here in Romans 12:11-12. He suggests zealous living is evident in those who serve the Lord. Our zeal shines through as evidence of our joyful hope, our patience in affliction, and our faithfulness in prayer.

Self reflection is always good.  Let’s do a zeal heart check.

Heart Check Questions:

Are we serving the Lord?

Are we joyful in our hope in the Lord?

Are we patient in affliction?

Are we faithful in prayer?

 

Our heart check helps us to refocus and help us be more intentional about staying plugged into our power source for zeal and spiritual fervor.

Week #38 Isaiah 40:31

Isaiah 40:31

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.”

 

A life lived with hope in the Lord is one marked by strength and endurance. When our hope is secure in the Lord we are able to see our life from an eagles perspective and recognize the temporary as minor and the eternal as important.

 

Our hope also empowers us as we trust in the Lord in every situation. Let’s live lives marked by strength and endurance as we secure our hope in the Lord.

Week # 29 Philippians 4:6-7

Philippians 4:6-7

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Prayer is our anchor that secures the peace of God in our lives.  We  are able to rise above the circumstances of life through trusting thankfulness with the Lord’s peace guarding our hearts and minds.

 

Anxiousness is a weight that pulls us away from the amazing peace of God.  Let’s remember to stay anchored in prayer through ALL the circumstances of life and rise above!

Week #22 Romans 8:28

Pause with me this Memorial weekend to remember those in our Military that have died sacrificially in service for our nation’s freedom and the protection of those in pursuit of freedom.  I’m personally very thankful for the bravery and sacrifice of our fallen Heroes and their precious loved ones left to carry forward their legacy.  May we never forget their sacrifice as we live lives with honor and integrity in the freedom we have been given.

Am I the only one challenged by the statement by Paul that “in all things” the Lord works for the good of his people?   Really, all things in my life from the crazy, hurtful, disobedient, lovely, confusing, and …… he uses them all for good?  When I run into word challenges within scripture like this weeks, all and good, it leads me to dig deeper.  I will either do a word study, looking into the original language or compare translations.  I decided that we will look at this verse in multiple Bible translations to make sure we don’t lose or miss any truth that Paul is passing on to us.  So take a moment and read through the following translations and make not of common phrases and truth that runs through and we will meet again on the other side.

New International Version

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

King James Version

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

New Living Translation

“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”

New American Standard Bible

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

The Message

Verses 26-28 “Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along.  If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t mater. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans.  He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God.  That is why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.”

Did you see it?  I think it is pretty evident that Paul truly meant “all things” in God’s hands will be worked out into good for those who love him.  Does that settle it in your mind?  Or are you still challenged?  Let’s dig a little deeper because we are looking at this concept of truth with the backdrop of what is happening in our own lives and this world.  Part of my backdrop today is the aftermath of the Manchester Terrorist attack on their precious children.  How does that work out for good?  I don’t know!  I don’t understand it!   But I do know that when I don’t know and I don’t know how or what to pray the Lord has provided his Spirit to help me and pray for me, so that in the Lord’s timing and way I will find peace and even sometimes understanding.

Have you ever been encouraged that the Spirit was filling in your prayer gaps? Just incase you can’t recall a time I want to share a precious experience of a sweet friend who was facing many “why God experiences”.  In the middle of her circumstances she found herself one Sunday without her dear husband who had to remain home as he continued to recover for a series of unexpected and complicated surgeries.  Once again she was missing him by her side. Then, to prick at her heart even more it was announced that we would be celebrating communion.  She found herself overcome with the desire for her husband to be able to celebrate it too.  From the quietness of her heart she cried out her wish.  As she recalls it was just a thought— not a prayer.   She knew he would be missing it as he watched the service live from home.  Following church she gathered her children and they headed home.  As they shared lunch she shared with her husband her wish that he could have celebrated communion with her today.  With a big smile, he said “I did!”  She was speechless.  Then came the question, “but how can that be?”  Through his grin he shared with the family how their neighbor, a minister, stopped by to visit with him and serve him communion.  And he said, “If that wasn’t amazing enough he was serving me at the same time as you were having it at church.  I could see it on the screen behind him!”  She was overjoyed and full of amazement that the Lord would answer her wish.  Let’s just say when she shared her experience with me her face was beaming with gratitude and joy.  There was not doubt that she was refreshed by the Lord’s goodness and love He had showered over her family.    Sometimes we get to see and experience the good in all things and other times we continue to persevere believing that God has something good He is still working on.

Does her answered wish encourage you like it does me?  I’m so thankful for friends of the faith that share their faith builder moments with me.   I hope you have a few family or friends like this.  If not, pray and ask Him for some and keep your eyes open because the Lord will answer your prayer.  He didn’t design us to walk alone but in relationship with Him and fellow believers.

Each of us are responding to the truth Paul shared in Romans 8:28 through  different lenses of life based on two factors:  1. Our spiritual heart condition. 2. Our trust relationship with God.    If either of these factors are out of focus our experiences in life will also be out of focus according to how God sees them. Whether we are in a season of why God experiences like my friend, where are you God experiences, or wow God experiences, we have opportunity to look at them with clarity, confusion, or despair.    Clarity comes from looking through clear lenses of a spiritual heart full of love for God and His people and a trusting daily relationship with Him too.  It’s kind of like Night Vision Goggles(NVG).  When we find ourself in the darkness of this world we need to strap on our NVG’s to help us clearly see the Lord at work and keep trusting that He does and will work all things for good!

Let me know how you see the Lord working in your life this week!

Week # 14 Wisdom Builder 2 Chronicles 7:14

2 Chronicles 7:14

” if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear fro heaven and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Maybe this is a familiar verse for you like it is for me.  I was first introduced to 2 Chronicles 7:14  when I was a National Day of Prayecoordinator for our Chapel in 2006.  I’ve always seen it as a call to prayer for the people on behalf of our nation.  But in studying the original context of this verse I have discovered it’s richness extends beyond a call to prayer.

These words of the Lord were spoken to King Solomon at the completion of building the Temple in Jerusalem.  The Lord appeared to him at night following  fourteen days of celebration of the Lord filling the Temple with his glory and  the Festival of Feast of Tabernacles with the people of Israel.  The people all went home joyful and glad.   While Solomon’s experience continued with a visit from the Lord.  God chose to personnally tell him that he heard his prayer of dedication(that is recorded in 2 Chronicles 6: 14-42(hover over this passage location to read it)).   Take a moment to read the prayer.  It is fascinating.   If you read the complete response, 2 Chronicles 7:12 – 22, you will recognize it as though Father God is continuing his conversation with Solomon.  He responds to him with the same phrases that Solomon used in his prayer.   I love it.  It is another sweet example of how relational and intentional the Lord is with his people.  We should find hope in this verse for many reasons.

  1. It is reassurance that the Lord listens and responds to his people.
  2. The Lord himself gave guidance for how to approach him:
    • in prayer
    • by seeking his face
    • by turning from our wicked ways
  3. The Lord is in heaven ready:
    • to hear our humble prayer
    • to respond with forgiveness
    • to respond with healing

Don’t we have such an amazing Father in heaven!  He is loving and holy.   We are to approach him in reverent humility.  The Lord is fully aware of our inability to live holy as he is without his righteousness covering our sin(Romans 3:21-31).  Solomon’s father King David knew this from personal experience and he certainly passed down, to his son, his understanding of God’s heart as David expressed it in Psalm 51:16 -17.  David approached the Lord with a sacrifice of his “broken and contrite heart”, rather than one for the altar, because he knew the Lord delighted in a heart submitted to him more than a sacrifice of grain or burnt offering, as prescribed in the Law of the Old Testament.  Both of these King’s experienced God the Father in a very unique personal relationship because they were chosen by him to rule his people and they responded to the Lord’s heart with reverence.  Before the new covenant, consummated by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, only a few chosen people were able to experience God the Father in a personal relationship(2 Corinthians 3: 1-18).  Now, under the new covenant, we are called the temple of the Holy Spirit(1 Corinthians 6:19-20).  The quality and closeness of our relationship with the Lord is a matter of our heart condition.

How would you describe your heart relationship with the Lord?

I encourage each of us to take time this week to humble ourselves before the Lord in an attitude of prayer as we seek his face.  When we do this we are better prepared to respond to his prompts to turn from any wickedness that has crept in-between us.   When we seek the heart of the Lord we can be fully assured that he will hear us from heaven and respond in love with forgiveness and healing.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this new way to look at our treasure verse this week.

Week #12 Wisdom Builder 2 Corinthians 7:10

Wow it is hard to believe this is the twelfth week of 2017 already!  Twelve treasure verses down and forty more left to discover this year.  This week we will reflect on 2 Corinthians 7:10 with the purpose of storing it in our hearts.

Godly sorrow.  What does it mean to you?  Can you recall a time that you experienced sorrow?  Romans 2:4 suggests that “Godly sorrow” is our personal awareness in response of the “riches of His kindness, forbearance and patience” towards humanity and us individually.  The very purpose of the Lord’s kindness is to lead us to repentance because his desire for us is to experience his gift of salvation that “leaves no regrets.”   I believe “the no regrets” it’s referring to is eternal life.   Which is opposite of those who only have worldly sorrow– regret or sorriness of not achieving a standard or goal rather than in response to God’s kindness.

We all experience some level of sorrow and regret in life because none of us have the ability to achieve perfection in this world.   I am challenged daily with where my sorriness leads me.   I know I am naturally very selfish in my thinking and actions.  This tendency permits me to regularly view life through the lens of my perspective rather than God’s perspective.  Reflecting on this verse reminds me that I should be more concerned with how my actions or lack of action effects my relationship with the Lord and others desire for relationship with him- “Godly sorrow”.  Rather than personal regret or embarrassment for how my choice has effected my reputation, my opportunities, my relationships, or my life in general.   I hope you get the point.

Recognition of the perspective we are looking at our life from is the first step in following the kindness of God to repentance that builds a solid relationship with him full of love and grace rather than empty regrets.  Chances are as you read this something has stirred within and brought to mind a time when you too experienced remorse.  May I suggest that the weight of any regrets we have now is pale in comparison to the regret we will experience in eternity if it is spent separated from God.  Jesus spoke of the tormenting regret that awaits those who only respond to his kindness with “worldly sorrow” in Luke 16: 19 -31.  The scene ends with a rich man in Hades.  After living his life of luxury with a selfish perspective.  He is now living in eternal torment begging for relief as he looked into paradise where “Father Abraham” could see and hear his pleas for water and rescue.   Abraham replied “between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.”(Luke 16:26)  The rich man then begged Abraham to send someone to warn his five brothers who were still alive “so that they will not also come to this place of torment.”(Luke 16:28)  My prayer is that those within my influence will experience the kindness of God and refocus their perspective to build a solid relationship with Christ.

Which lens are you looking through today?  God’s perspective or yours?
