daily word - control issues?

Dale Cresap's picture

Have you heard of people who have control issues? Have you encountered any? Are you one? What about churches? Some people perceive the church they have experienced as having control issues, and there may be some basis for this perception. What about me? How do you perceive me? You may think that I have control issues if you consider the way I am represented by others, but what has been your firsthand experience? Have I not entreated you with longsuffering patience?

daily word - is more better?

Dale Cresap's picture

Your culture operates on the premise that more is better. Is this always true? The King in Proverbs asked me to give him the food convenient for him recognizing that too much or too little both resulted in problems, and you see this same principle at work today. The concept of too much also applies to a load you must pick up. You can only lift so much. You may not have to lift all your possessions at one time, but the concept of too much can still be valid because they can be a burden whether you are physically lifting them or not.

daily word - prove and hold fast

Dale Cresap's picture

Do you have favorite authors and teachers? Nearly everyone does, and that makes you a disciple of them as well as of me. Whether this is a good thing or not depends on the quality of the truth they present. Paul invited his audience to follow him as he followed me. If following them leads you closer to me then all is well, but realize everyone knows in part, even your favorites. You are less likely to be limited by their limitations if you are aware of them. Prove all things, hold fast that which is good. Cast your net upon the waters, and sort it out on the deck.

daily word- liberal? conservative?

Dale Cresap's picture

Have you heard of churches described as liberal or conservative? These are the same terms applied to political ideology and in this case they have approximately the same meanings. You would expect to find liberals in a liberal church and conservatives in a conservative church. Yet I made it clear that my Kingdom was not of this world, and these ideological distinctions are very much of this world. I warned that many would come in my name that I did not send. Have you seen those from opposing viewpoints who both claim my support for their agenda?

daily word - discerner?

Dale Cresap's picture

Are you familiar with the idea that my word is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart? How do you think this works? Have you ever heard someone with an agenda or a fully developed point of view expound it from the Bible? They can assemble verses that back their position. Yet someone with an opposing point of view can also assemble an argument from different verses to support his position.

daily word - clear vision?

Dale Cresap's picture

How good is your vision? Can you see what is right in front of you? Have you ever observed a scene, and not been aware of some essential part of it until someone else pointed it out to you? Perhaps you have been the one to point things out to others, and it is obvious once you see it, but not until then. And so you have expressions about those who cannot see what is right in front of them. I said to my audiences, he who has ears, let him hear, and he who has eyes, let him see. The Pharisees asked if they were blind also and I answered that they were because they claimed to see.

daily word - sacred?

Dale Cresap's picture

Do you divide the world into sacred and secular, with secular being the default condition, so that only those places and things that are specifically devoted are sacred? This leaves most of the world unclaimed without a fight. Didn’t I make the whole world? Then shouldn’t the default condition be sacred rather than secular? Perhaps a more useful concept than secular is desecrated. If everything is sacred by default, then only those things that are desecrated, or made non-sacred are not. Desecration, like offense, must need come but woe to them that bring it.

daily word - outside truth

Dale Cresap's picture

If you live in a highly individualistic society, do you think this is the right way to be? Do you look on community-based societies with amazement and amusement, seeing only the problems inherent in this approach, and only the benefits of your own? But there are advantages to community and problems with individualism. There is a human bias to see your familiar and accustomed way of doing things as right or best, but this is subjective and limited rather than eternal and enduring truth.

daily word - embarrassed?

Dale Cresap's picture

I said that if you would deny me before men then I would deny you before my Father in heaven. Have you ever seen teenagers who were embarrassed by their parents in the presence of their peers? You know this is wrong even though it is so commonplace as to be cliché. This is an immature stage of development that should not be desired or admired, but it is real. Do you know that there are stages of development for spiritual maturity just as there are for human growth?

daily word - stable?

Dale Cresap's picture

Do you look for stability in your life and strive to get back to a simple state of equilibrium? Do you think this is a realistic goal? Do you ride a bike? Can you maintain your balance on a bicycle that isn’t moving? Yet you can easily maintain your balance on a bicycle that is moving forward. You may consider this an illustration for your life. It wasn’t meant to be static and fixed in one location or condition, but constantly changing and moving forward. Stability is still a meaningful concept, but it is dynamic rather than static stability.

Hear God Through Your Dreams Workbook

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 92 Pages

A new book has just been released that accompanies this workbook: Click here for Hearing God Through Your Dreams by Charity Kayembe and Mark Virkler (featured on Sid Roth's "It's Supernatural", with over half a million views just on YouTube).


Do you often wake up feeling there was a significant message in your dream, but you’re just not sure what it is? Like Daniel and Joseph, do you long to be able to help others understand their own dreams and win them to Christ as you explain His night messages to them? Wouldn't it be nice if you could receive mid-course corrections from the Lord while you sleep? Do you wish you could be receiving divine inspiration, creative solutions to problems, and direction from the Lord during that third of your life that you’re “just” sleeping?

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
