DayBreaks for 7/28/14 – It Must Be Believed to Be Seen

DayBreaks for 7/28/14 – It Must Be Believed to Be Seen

Galen is traveling through 8/5/14…new DayBreaks will resume after he returns. 

From the DayBreaks archive, 7/21/2004:

John 20:25-29 (NIV) – So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”  But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.”  A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!”  Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”  Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”  Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

I was listening the other day to a U2 album and I caught a phrase that I’d missed before about a “place that must be believed to be seen”.  We usually, like Thomas, say something like this: “I won’t believe it until I see it.”  But where’s the faith in such a saying?

God desires faith from us.  He desires that we trust Him implicitly.  But we don’t, do we?  Let’s face it: our ability to trust God implicitly is affected by the fact that we’ve never been able to trust anyone that way without disappointment.  But that’s because we’ve never really dealt with anyone even remotely like God.  God simply CANNOT fail.  His plan can’t fail.  His will can’t fail.  His Word can’t fail.  His promises can’t fail.  And when Jesus told his followers that he was going to prepare a place for them – a place that other passages tell us cannot be described for it’s glory – and that he’d eventually come back and take us to be there with him – you can be sure of it!

Does heaven exist?  Sure, it does.  But it is one of those places that you must believe in in order to see it!

PRAYER: For the mystery of faith and the power of belief, we thank You!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

DayBreaks for 4/04/14 – The Season of Belief

DayBreaks for 4/04/14 – The Season of Belief

_MG_0832

Song of Songs 2:11-12 (MSG) – Look around you: Winter is over; the winter rains are over, gone! 12  Spring flowers are in blossom all over. The whole world’s a choir—and singing! Spring warblers are filling the forest with sweet arpeggios.

The United States has experienced one of its worst winters ever.  Record low temperatures and snowfalls were record by the bushel full.  I don’t know about where you live, but we’ve been in the Atlanta, Georgia area now since mid-December, and I can tell you that folks around here are really starting to believe that spring has sprung!  The trees are in bloom, the dogwoods and azaleas are displaying the glory of His handiwork.  As I sit here writing this devotion, I can hear the birds singing all over the woods around us and can feel a gentle spring breeze that pushes the warm air through the windows.  People are cheerful and excited at the turning of the weather, and for good reason: springtime is the season of un-contained optimism!

As the days grow longer and warmer, and the sun grows stronger with each passing day, it feels like the time has come to do something outrageous. Many are digging into the earth, carefully plowing and pulverizing hard clods into fine loam. Just last weekend I helped my son remove the weeds and grasses from a flowerbed in front of his house. Others are adding extra nutrients to enrich the prepared soil. Then into that lush, fertile mixture we deposit . . . dried up, shriveled, little (sometimes downright tiny), seemingly completely dead bits of matter. We call them “seeds.”

Nothing looks less “lively” than a seed. The tiniest ones–lettuces, carrots, radishes–are so minuscule that planting them is like putting into the soil grains of coarse black pepper. Corn and beans “look” like corn kernels and soup beans. Well, they look like corn kernels and beans that have been lost on the floor of your pantry for six months or so, rejected even by the mice.  They definitely don’t look like “good eats.” Yet we still joyfully plunge these desiccated bits of matter into the soil we have sweated over, completely confident that something will come out of our efforts.

Springtime is the season of belief. Every spring we believe in the power of the life that lives within those apparently dead seed husks. We believe that just a few handfuls of seeds can produce a glorious new crop to nourish our lives and feed our families.

Is not this annual ritual a blessing from our God?  Is it not a reminder of His renewal and gift of life?  Sure, spring is beautiful, but I think He had more than that in mind when He created this season.  I think He meant for it to be a picture of hope, a snapshot of new possibilities for living things in His creation. 

You are part of that creation.  You have possibilities – and with this season – I hope that you also feel new hope for the future.  For His children, the future always holds something greater than our past or present.  He wants to create another pocket of new life in you.  Let this be a season of belief in His goodness for you …and toward you!

PRAYER: Thank You, Father, for new hope, for new seasons of life that give us reason to rejoice and believe that the best is ahead of us!  We invite You to create more new life in us and we eagerly await to see what it is that You are growing within the soil of our hearts!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

DayBreaks for 1/30/14 – Seeing Straight

DayBreaks for 1/30/14 – Seeing Straight

Matthew 6:23 (NLT) – But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!

There are times when I am dumbfounded by what self-professed Christians believe in, what they say and what they do. If I am puzzled by it, I wonder what God things of it. Of course, I could be wrong in my beliefs of how Christians are to act and what we are to value, but many things are very clear in Scripture…and yet many act as if they don’t care what the Bible says while they pursue their own interests and act like unbelievers. Perhaps that’s why I found this interesting:

In 1897 vision scientist and psychologist George M. Stratton (1865-1957) created a pair of glasses that turned the world upside down. Actually, he turned the world right-side-up because our eyes project an image to our brains that is naturally upside down. Our brains take an image and invert it – giving us our “right side up” perception of the world. Stratton strapped on his goggles and proceeded to blunder into things for several days. In this new, now “upside-down” world, his brain was seeing liquids “poured up,” he saw himself walking on ceilings. Everything he viewed was completely inverted.

But only for a few days. Our eyes are our cameras, but the pictures we take with our eyes are developed by our brains. After a few days Stratton recorded that his most powerful visual organ, his brain, had figured out that something was amiss. After a few days his brain re-inverted the images it was receiving, and the world no longer looked upside down to the scientist. His brain completely flipped the images and presented him with a right-side up world once again. The process took about three days…

In this physical example, Dr. Stratton’s mind figured out that something was wrong and corrected the problem. How does that relate to Christianity and our behavior and beliefs? We have been given the Spirit that is to convict us of sin, right? So why aren’t “Christians” feeling convicted when they support causes and activities that are clearly (to me and many others) un-biblical?

I suspect the clue lies in the very last fraction of a sentence: “The process took about three days…” How does that relate? Simply this: it doesn’t take long for our vision, our understanding, our beliefs and actions, to find a new “normal” and to believe it is normal. Dr. Stratton was still wearing the glasses that switched the orientation of all he saw, but within just 3 days, his brain told him it was normal and he had adjusted to that new “normal.” So it is with our beliefs – it doesn’t take long to forget where the authority lies, to listen to the wisdom of mankind, and to come to see that as the “normal”, the “right” thing. When our view of morals and ethics become twisted, we are in danger of believing that lies are truth and truth is false.

Who is your authority? Who will you believe about right and wrong? And what will you do about it?

PRAYER: We want to believe what is more comfortable for us and when others tell us that it is okay, Lord, we are quick to believe them. Lead us back to the Truth of Your Word and give us wisdom to understand it and the ability to act on it! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

DayBreaks for 12/11/13 – I Expect More of You!

DayBreaks for 12/11/13 – I Expect More of You

NOTE: Galen will be traveling the week of 12/8.  New DayBreaks will resume the following week.

From the DayBreaks Archive, 2003:

Matthew 11:20-24 (MsgB)  – “Next Jesus let fly on the cities where he had worked the hardest but whose people had responded the least, shrugging their shoulders and going their own way.  21″Doom to you, Chorazin! Doom, Bethsaida! If Tyre and Sidon had seen half of the powerful miracles you have seen, they would have been on their knees in a minute. 22At Judgment Day they’ll get off easy compared to you. 23And Capernaum! With all your peacock strutting, you are going to end up in the abyss. If the people of Sodom had had your chances, the city would still be around. 24At Judgment Day they’ll get off easy compared to you.”

Just like the tri-city area in Minneapolis and other locations around the country, the land of Palestine had a famous tri-city area, too.  In this passage, the three cities that Jesus addresses are Chorazin, Bethsaida and Capernaum.  What do we know about these cities?

Chorazin: we don’t know anything more about this city as it is not mentioned anywhere else.  It is believed to have been 2 miles from the city of Capernaum.

Bethsaida: this was the location of the miracle of the feeding of the 6000, of the blind man who received his sight and numerous other healings of those who were sick.  It was also the home of 3 of the apostles.

Capernaum: this city was Jesus’ home once he began his public ministry.  As such, it is a place where he commonly taught in the synagogue, and there are several passages that refer to this.  In addition, it was the location of the healing of the centurion’s servant, of Peter’s mother-in-law, of the paralytic who was healed, the casting out of an evil spirit/demon, and the healing of a child.  Because this was the home of Jesus during his ministry, this was the most favorable place on earth, a city with tremendously exalted privileges.

What caused Jesus’ anger to be directed against these three cities?  Simply this: these 3 towns were the location of nearly 50% of the recorded miracles that Jesus performed.  If I may take the liberty of paraphrasing what Jesus was saying, it’s this: “I expect more of you than this…”.  After all, having witnessed such testimonies to the fact that he was the Son of God, they should have responded better to him than they did.  In fact, of the three heathen cities he referred to (Tyre, Sidon and Sodom), it is said that they’ll fare better in the day of judgment than Chorazin, Bethsaida and Capernaum.  It should not surprise us, therefore, to learn that all 3 of the cities in Galilee that Jesus mentioned no longer exist…they are merely piles of rubble where life once thrived.

But, while all this is interesting (at least I think it is!), I would be guilty of a huge oversight if I fail to apply the word to my life.  I’ve seen God do many things in my lifetime, many mighty and wonderful things, and what has been my response?  If you are a child of His, you’ve seen great things, too.  How have you responded?  What would Jesus say to us, if instead of naming towns, he named names that included you and I?

Luke 12:48 (NLT)  – “But people who are not aware that they are doing wrong will be punished only lightly. Much is required from those to whom much is given, and much more is required from those to whom much more is given.”

DayBreaks for 12/10/13 – Why God Doesn’t Act

DayBreaks for 12/10/13 – Why God Doesn’t Act

NOTE: Galen will be traveling the week of 12/8.  New DayBreaks will resume the following week.

From the DayBreaks Archive, 2003:

How many times have you prayed for God to do something significant with your life?  If you’re at all like me, there have been plenty of times when I really, truly wanted to do something great for God.  Sadly, it is far more common that nothing happened than that God did that great thing.  When that happens, we are prone to blame God for the fact that whatever we wanted, didn’t happen.  And sometimes, that may be the right answer, because in his perfect wisdom, He knows whether it was really a good thing that would further His kingdom, or whether we wanted it for our own glory and the recognition of man.

More often than not, though, I am beginning to think that the reason that God doesn’t do great things for His kingdom through us is not because of some fault of His, but rather a fault within me.

In his book, Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire, Jim Cymbala wrote the following: “What is it really that stops us from becoming mighty warriors in the Lord?  God has not changed.  He is still superior to anything the enemy can throw at us.  No personal or church situation is too hopeless for the all-sufficient power of the Holy Spirit?  God will be no more eager to act tomorrow than he is right now.  He is waiting for us to take his promises seriously and go boldly to the throne of grace.  He wants us to meet the enemy at the very point of attack, standing against him in the name of Christ.  When we do so, God will back us up with all the resources of heaven.”

You see, the fault lies with me – not God.  The problem is that I fear that perhaps God has changed…that He may not be superior to the wiles of the evil one in the 21st century.  It is that I fear a given situation in my life of our congregation is too great for the Spirit to resolve.  It is because I think that God might be more eager to work through me when I get my life and act together – but He and I both know that I’m not there, not yet.  So I wait.  Or perhaps it is a failure on my part because I’m not eager to be at the tip of the sword, at the point of attack, where the battle is the fiercest because I fear for myself or my loved ones and what the enemy may do to them.  I may be eager to be part of the army of the Lord, but only if I can be part of the rear echelon responsible for the supplies – and not for the fighting itself.

Oh, I’d never say such things out loud – expressing my skepticism about the power of the Spirit or that perhaps God’s nature has changed a bit and He’s not quite up to dealing with the modern world.  No, I’d never say such things out loud.  But my actions, I fear, speak louder than my words – certainly to God, who sees all and knows all.

The key question for you and I today and always is this: are we willing to stand in the front line, trusting that God is ready, able and eager TODAY to carry the fight to the enemy and to defeat him right now – through me?  Am I willing to take His promises at face value – and as nothing less than the certain fact that they represent?  Don’t answer “Yes” to that question too quickly.  It’s easy to say “yes”, but what we say about it doesn’t really matter.  Our answer can’t be spoken – it can only demonstrated by whether or not I actually start living and acting based on His great and precious promises.

Numbers 14:11 (MsgB)  – “God said to Moses, ‘How long will these people treat me like dirt? How long refuse to trust me? And with all these signs I’ve done among them!’”

DayBreaks for 05/15/13 – When Men Stop Believing

DayBreaks for 05/15/13 – When Men Stop Believing

aliens1NOTE: I am on a missions trip/internship to Africa and will be gone until 5/25.  Please pray for God’s work to go forth mightily, for protection for myself and those with whom I will be working, and for my wife in my absence!  Thank you…I cherish your prayers!  You will be receiving DayBreaks as usual (from the archive) until I’ve returned.

Romans 1:21-25: “21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-who is forever praised. Amen.

G. K. Chesterton was said to have made this comment (not an exact quote) when discussing faith: “It has been said that when people stop believing in God that they believe in nothing.  Alas, it is much worse than that.  When men and women stop believing in God, they will believe anything.

We live in a world that will believe anything.  Some believe that aliens built the pyramids.  Others believe that we are gods unto ourselves.  Others believe in Mother Earth but don’t believe in Father God.  Some have believed that spaceships were following comets and that beings from “out there” were coming to take them with them.  And they believed that so strongly that they killed themselves so they would be ready to go.

Why is it that men and women don’t want to believe in God?  When God is out of the picture, what is there for them to hope for?  They need something, so they manufacturer gods out of “created things” and hope that those gods will be able to give them what they long for – meaning, love, life, hope for the future and deliverance from what we experience in this life.

Sadly, it may not be an all or nothing situation.  Our knowledge of God limits what we believe about Him.  It is for that reason, if for no other, that we can never stop trying to learn more about Him.  Our lack of knowledge of His nature can lead to false assumptions about what God wants from us.

DayBreaks for 03/01/13 – Unless I Believed

DayBreaks for 03/01/13 – Unless I Believed                      

hdr02

Ps.27:13-14 – I would have despaired unless I believed I would see the goodness of The Lord in the land of the living. Wait for The Lord, Be strong and let your heart take courage Yes, wait for The Lord.

It has been a very hectic week…and it’s not over yet.  Maybe your week has been that way, too.  I’ve had two appointments with doctors this week, but that’s not what’s made it so hectic. 

My 85-year old mother has had dementia for some time.  About 10 days ago, she went into the hospital for relatively routine surgery to repair a hernia.  The surgery went fine – but something seems to have snapped in her mind.  She’s been incredibly delusional, paranoid, out of touch with reality – and even combative.  She, of course, doesn’t realize she’s doing those things or being that way.  We are told that with each passing day that the chances of her snapping back to the pre-surgery mental capacity dwindles.  This may be the new normal.  As I carry my mother’s power of attorney for medical care, my last few days have been swamped with phone calls from the hospital (that wants desperately and urgently to discharge her) and trying to arrange a suitable discharge plan in a place that can meet her physical and mental needs.  It’s become something akin to a marathon…but we’re being pushed at a sprinter’s pace by the hospital.  Just moments ago the latest plan fell apart.

Someone asked me today if I thought we’d ever get out of having so many crises.  My honest answer: probably, at least I hope so.  I could certainly echo the words of the Psalmist. 

It isn’t just when there are crises, though.  It’s ordinary life.  How many times would I/could I have despaired if I didn’t believe – if I didn’t truly think that before this life is over that we’ll once again see and experience the goodness of the Lord.  I know we’ll see and experience it in the “land of the dead” – that is the great Christian hope!  But it’s harder at times to believe we’ll see and experience it again in the land of the living.  All the travails of the past year, my two surgeries, a new ministry, raising support for that ministry – and now my mother’s failing health situation.  It sometimes just seems to pile up on us, doesn’t it?

And yet…we must confess that we will see His goodness even today – no matter what happens to us, we’ll see it if we slow down enough to think about it and look for it.  We’ll see it in the crispness of a new day He made, of the song of the birds (which I so much enjoyed today!), the sighing of the breeze, the wag of a dog’s tail, the gentle touch of my wife’s hand on mine, the voice of a friend.  Life – and joy – can get away from us unless we take the time to look for “the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living”.  It’s all around us.  Let’s not forget that!

PRAYER: Jesus, I wonder how you made it through your 30+ years here on earth after living all of eternity past in heaven’s delight.  It must have been very trying.  I am comforted by knowing you understand and that even this day we can see your goodness and that we will also see it in the world to come!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
