And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place….(2 Peter 1:19)

Have you ever stared at the fire when braaiing, on a dark night (or at a candle during load shedding)?  The longer you stare at the flames, the more the rest of the world seems to disappear.  This is how Peter tells us we should study the Word. Our focus, our attention should be wholly on the Word, without any worldly distractions.  This is true meditation.  Not emptying your mind but filling it with the wonder and majesty of the Word.

Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. (John 14:13-14)
If we believe Christ's incredible, repeated, statement, it will be evident: We will be praying people, praying Regularly, Specifically, Confidently, Purposefully. 
It IS an incredible statement. And it ought to be believed because the One who said it rose from the dead by His own power. Take what you know to be His Will. And appeal to Him for that. He will do it.

On Thursday this week at 6 a.m., KBC’s fresh Eldership gathered for its first executive meeting. 10 a.m. is no longer viable, but there is real significance making this the first action of the day. From now on, Thursdays at 06:00 are our time together, whether for monthly meetings or with the Future Focus team, or just connecting for prayer and sharing, seeking to nurture and know each other.

The Lord has us on His path of growth, thankful for our rich past, ready for a rich future in Him:

Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you! My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. (Psalm 73:25, 26)

Welcome, and do pray that we may be sensitive to His leading in all things.

Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.

I think we get it that there is a super-enormous gap between the thoughts of God and the thoughts of man, which we can never reach.
But do we also get it that when He speaks, His unreachable thoughts are no longer so! We have access to the very thoughts of God. As Paul says, 

But, as it is written, "What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him"–10 these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. (1Co 2:9-10)


Therefore, brothers and sisters, through God's Words, and by God's Spirit, come and feast today on the Thoughts of God.
