Mike,

Thanks for leading us on this journey this year. May you continue to have anointing in 2006!

Molly

Yes, Mike thank you again for your daily contribution to my life's edification. May God richly bless you and this ministry.
Regarding Malachi and the whole tithe: I read this for so many years with a real sense of conviction from the Holy Spirit--and did nothing about it. Then I repented and followed what I believe to be the Lord's request on my life. New King James from James 4:17 17 Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
Now I can read this and other passages and know that I am not guilty of the sin of not doing what the Lord asks of me. I also don't judge others and their tithing habits because I know that His sheep hear His voice and will follow Him. It reminds me of when Jesus was restoring Peter in John 21:21 and Peter says "but Lord what about him?" Jesus's answer "...you must follow me". So if you read Malachi and feel a tug of conviction, don't turn away. It is the Lord calling you to the higher walk financially. So follow Him and don't get hung up on results. The blessings are truly innumerable and unquantifiable. If we hear His voice, listen and do what He asks, then He will continue to speak to us. If you turn away...well, that is what the nation of Israel did and we have read the results for months. Ouch. The poured out blessings: a life full of grace, forgiveness, mercy, direction and hope. Ultimately: "well done, you've been a good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your master" Matt 25:14+
May God bless you all richly and I'll be on the walk with you in 2006

Mike,

Your discipline and consistency has been a huge blessing to me in 2005! God is really using you with this blog. You provided the encouragement I needed over the past year to take on and complete this life changing journey. Thanks again and God bless you in 2006!

Gen 3:1 stood out for me. satan asked Eve what God had told her.She gave him the information and in doing so, allowed him o get her to think about what God told her.satan gave her an alternative to think about - when he told her she would not die. She spent time thinking about this and then took a good look at the fruit and 'saw tht it was good and pleasant to the eyes'. How many times have we been tempted to sin in this way. We start off weith just one thought. The bibl in 2 Corinthians 10:5 tells us we should bring every thought into captivity and ensure that even our thoughts are in obedience to God's Word and Will.

PRAISE AND GLORY TO THE MASTER, AMEN. HE IS NOT MY CO PILOT AND OR A PERSON WHO WALKS WITH ME. HE, IS MY VERY EXISTENCE. GRACE IS THE KEY ISSUE IN THE CHRISTIAN WALK. A PERSON BEATING UP ON HIMSELF CAN NEVER LOOK UP TO RENEW THE MIND. HE IS KICKED INTO SUBMISSION BY THE LAW AND IS YOKED UNDER IT. WE ARE COMMANDED TO ENTER INTO HIS REST. PRAISE AND GLORY TO HIS NAME. AMEN AND AMEN
