God expects us to be good stewards with the earth he left in our care. He says in Luke 12:43 that the servant will be blessed if his master finds him doing his assigned task when he returns.
God's expectation is that we will occupy the territory until Jesus returns. We are to establish His reign and His kingdom on the earth. Not doing our job disappoints God, and leaves the earth defiled and all creation groaning.
The land becomes defiled by people (both living today and previous generations) disobeying the laws of God, mostly manifested by how they interact with each other.
Isaiah 24:5-6 (CEV)
The physical land and the structures thereon contain the product of blessings and curses from previous years and generations.
I ask you this question. Have you ever been into a...
The Kingdom of God is the heart and core of Jesus Christ's message for all of creation.
In the King James Bible, the gospels of Mathew, Mark, Luke and John, the 'Kingdom of God’ or the 'Kingdom of Heaven' is mentioned 98 times and 77 of those are by Jesus.
Jesus came demonstrating and showing us how to bring the Kingdom of God to earth. He lead with love.
The Kingdom of God is to be a literal kingdom ruling [in the spirit] over the whole earth.
Daniel 7:27 (NIV)
Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be handed over to the saints, the people of the Most High. His Kingdom will be an everlasting Kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey him."
Jesus taught us to pray:
Matthew 6:9 -10 (MKJV)
Therefore pray in this way: Our Father, who is in Heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven
The Kingdom perspective begins with acknowledging that it is possible...
These are interesting times in which God has placed me, why now?
Do you wake each morning full of zeal and passion, purpose and direction and finish each day with fulfilment and contentment?
Or do you ask yourself "What on earth am I here for?”
If you are like many Christians, you love God and know Jesus as a personal friend, yet there is something missing; you know there is something more. You believe there is a purpose for your life, but you have not yet found it.
This book has been written as a tool to help you find your purpose and to help you to answer the question "What on Earth am I here for?”
It takes you on a journey of discovering the uniqueness of you; your passions, your assignment, your purpose and how important YOU are to God and His plans for humanity.
Did you ever consider that God designed you to link in with Jesus' assignment of restoring the whole earth? Here is your opportunity to find out how our purpose is...
Welcome to a new year, a new decade.
Each year I spend time in reflection and then in looking forward with vision and planning. However, this year I have approached the new year from the perspectives of positioning and intention.
Insight into Positioning. (The italics is what I felt that God said to me).
I recently changed from handwriting my daily journal (Chat with God) to typewriting. I used to touch type, however, over the years I've become lazy and lost some of my skill. When I am journaling and typing I tend to just want to close my eyes and let my fingers move over the keys as the thoughts tumble to the keyboard. Doing this meant I needed to find the positioning keys for typing. Below the letters 'f' and 'j' there's a little bump. These bumps are for positioning your index fingers, then you can find all the keys easily .
So when I first changed to touch typing journaling , my typing was messy as I couldn't...
LEFT BRAIN RIGHT BRAIN
Modern medicine and man does not claim to know all about the brain and will never know the complexities and extent of the purposes of the brain.
The majority of the scientific community have concluded to date that the left and right side of the brain serve different purposes. The side that is dominant influences the skills of the person and both left and right side produce a different set of outcomes.
An example of this theory is that the left brain uses logic and reason and speech and writing skills the right brain is random and intuitive or the centre of our feelings, it is artistic creativity, musical, etc
When people study they use the "reason" part of their brain, one part of one hemisphere of our brain. However, God designed us to use both sides so there are consequences when we become ‘left’ or ‘right’ brain dominant.

So how's your reviewing been going this last week?
It's often said that hindsight the best vision we have and this has a lot of truth to it so we can use this to get better results in the future.
So how does this reviewing connect to the 7 mountains. The 7 Mountains is a strategy for influencing all aspects of society and YOU are the influencer. So managing yourself that is being the best version of you is vital to society.
The reviewing process enables us to see things from a helicopter view, It gives you the opportunity you see a much bigger picture then when you were actively involved in situation the circumstance the daily or weekly or monthly. Most of our decision are emotionally based mainly unconsciously, in review you are no longer in the emotion of the moment, which allows you to look back and see what or how you could have acted differently.
Reviewing is not just thinking about the past day, week, month, quarter...
Did you as a Christian make a difference this year at work, at play, at home?
The end of the year is fast approaching, which for most people it becomes busier.
Often we are busier because we wanted to catch up with some of the things we haven't yet done and we are trying to fit in before the year ends. The year's end is seen as a deadline. E.g. coffee with a friend.
It's also the time when people celebrate as an example schools run the have the end of year assembly they have a concert the children are celebrating finishing of say 4th class in readiness for 5th class.
In the workplace there is celebrating the year of what has happened, with your having got to the end, the achievements along the way.
Often it is at work, where the organisation, the boss and yourself, just wants to get this finished before Christmas…..
However, in all this busyness it is the time to look back before we hit the 31st of December, start reflection of what...
Dr C Peter Wagner
I never personally met Dr Peter Wagner, yet he endorsed my book. How this happened is a God story worth telling.
In September 2007 a God in the Workplace conference was held in Australia at the Gold Coast. The speakers were Os Hillman, Che Ang, Peter Wagner and others.
My husband, myself and our youngest son attended this conference. Our eldest son who lived and worked at the Gold Coast attended the sessions after work. It was at one of these sessions that Peter was speaking and he mentioned that his daughter Ruth was trading the stock market and if anyone was interested in this field, Peter would provide them with Ruth’s contact information. Our son was in the stock and currency field for work, so he obtained Ruth’s details and made contact with her.
It was over 18 months later that our son felt that God had sent him to the USA to Utah for a season. He knew no-one and had no idea why he was going or what...
