You’re in Partnership with God

‘We are labourers together with God...’ 1 Corinthians 3:9 KJV Did you hear the story about the little boy who was selling 10 cent pencils door-to-door to raise the money to build a $30,000,000 hospital in his community? One woman said to him, ‘Son, that’s a mighty big goal for just one little boy selling pencils for 10 cents.’ With a big smile he replied, ‘Oh, I’m not doing it alone. See that boy across the street? He’s my partner; we’re doing it together.’ Now if he had that kind of faith in a partner who was only his equal, shouldn’t you have confidence in a God whose power is unequalled, and whose partnership guarantees success? The Bible says, ‘We are labourers together with God.’ When...

There’s a Way Out

‘...when you are tempted…[there’s]…a way out...’ 1 Corinthians 10:13 NIV Often we make excuses for our weaknesses, or blame others. The poet wrote, ‘An enemy I strove to know, he dogged my steps where’er I’d go. My plans he baulked and blocked my way, to lofty goals he answered “Nay!” Till I from him the veil did draw, I looked and lo—myself I saw.’ When John Wesley’s students met each week they would ask each other these four questions: (1) What sins have you committed since we last met? (2) What temptations have you faced? (3) How were you delivered? (4) What have you thought, said or done, of which you are uncertain whether it is sin or not? Those four questions will keep you...

Getting to the Other Side

‘..Let us cross over to the other side.’ Mark 4:35 NKJV One day Jesus said to His disciples, ‘Let us cross over to the other side… And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling.’ (Mark 4:35–37 NKJV) The devil doesn’t want you to get through this storm and reach the other side. He doesn’t mind you going to church, singing in the choir or serving on the board; he just doesn’t want you to reach your God-ordained destiny. But what’s waiting for you on the other side is worth everything you’re going through at the moment. You are up against a formidable opponent who knows God has a plan for your life. But he cannot sink the man or woman who has...

Live, as God Intended

‘His divine power has given us everything we need...’ 2 Peter 1:3 NIV The Bible says, ‘His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness… For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities…they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive...’ (2 Peter 1:3–8 NIV) Here are ten Scriptural principles to help you live, as God intended: (1) Guard your tongue. Always say less than you think and others will respect...

You’ll Come Out on Top!

‘...you will lift up your face without shame...’ Job 11:15 NIV Many of the world’s most successful people were at one time considered to be failures. A banker in Iowa laughed and told Alexander Graham Bell to remove that ‘toy’ from his office. The toy he referred to was the first telephone. Talk about missing an investment opportunity! A movie producer once scrawled ‘reject’ on the screenplay of Gone with the Wind. In 1906, the man who was Henry Ford’s greatest investor asked that his stock be sold because he didn’t believe the company would go anywhere. Imagine living with that memory! Mr Roebuck sold his part of the Sears and Roebuck Company for $25,000 because he said it would ‘never...

Don’t Get Diverted

‘While I was busy doing something else...’ 1 Kings 20:40 NLT This is what Scripture says about being busy. ‘While I was busy doing something else, the prisoner disappeared!’ In this story, God judges someone for forgetting what’s important and taking their eye off the ball. In 1992, Fortune magazine featured ‘The biggest business goofs of 1991’. In an act of corporate cooperation, telecommunications giant AT&T reached an agreement with the power company in New York City. The contract stated that whenever power demands exceeded a certain peak, AT&T would switch an internal switch which would, unplug some of its facilities, begin taking power from internal generators and so decrease the...

Doing What You’re Supposed to Do

‘...everyone’s work will be put through the fire...’ 1 Corinthians 3:13 TLB One day an ox said to a mule, ‘Let’s pretend to be sick.’ The mule said, ‘No, we need to get this work done.’ The ox pretended to be ill, and the farmer brought him fresh hay. When the mule came in from ploughing, the ox asked how things went and the mule said, ‘All right.’ The ox asked, ‘What did the farmer say about me?’ The mule replied, ‘Nothing.’ The next day the ox pretended to be ill again. When the mule came home the ox asked, ‘How did it go?’ The mule said, ‘All right.’ After a week of this, the ox asked, ‘Did the farmer say anything about me today?’ The mule replied, ‘Well, he said nothing to me...

Don’t Jump to Conclusions

‘I will guard my ways that I may not sin with my tongue...’ Psalm 39:1 NAS We all fail from time to time, even the best of us. When John D Rockefeller ran the Standard Oil Company one of his senior executives made a mistake that cost over US$2,000,000. The other executives thought Rockefeller would come down heavy on him and probably fire him. But he didn’t. Before he called the man in, he sat down, took a notepad and wrote across the top of it: ‘Points in favour of this man’. Then he listed the man’s strengths, including how he’d once helped the company make the right decision and earn them millions of dollars. One of the senior executives who witnessed it later said, ‘Whenever I am...

Overcoming Perfectionism

‘I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved...perfection!’ Philippians 3:12 NLT If you let it, perfectionism will rob you of peace, plus the joy of whatever you’ve accomplished so far. The sportswear manufacturer Fila took out a full-page ad in a newspaper to honour its NBA All-Star spokesman, Grant Hill, and, at the same time, take a swipe at the pressure young people feel today to be perfect. The ad pictures Hill surrounded by this text: ‘This year Grant Hill led his team in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals, led his team back into the playoffs, led the league in All-Star balloting, earned a place on the Olympic team, didn’t punch an official, didn’t demand a contract...

If You Love Them, Level with Them (3)

‘...each part…helps the other parts grow...’ Ephesians 4:16 NLT A good mentor will affirm in public, and correct in private. Your goal should be to help, not hurt. When you tell someone off in public you humiliate them, destroying their self-esteem. But when you affirm them in public you build their self-esteem, confidence and incentive. Of course, your praise should be genuine, not just empty words. By affirming sincerely and publicly, you plant the seeds of growth and greatness in the learner. A good mentor will also build an allegiance [loyality] to relationships, not issues. We tend to build an allegiance either to relationships, or to issues. We become mainly concerned about other...
