Don't murmur, disclaimer, prayer request

Dale Cresap's picture

Does it seem to you that workers criticizing the boss behind his back is a normal and expected practice? Do you find Biblical guidance on this matter? Passages regarding servants can be considered directly applicable to employees, and the Bible does not condone murmuring or rebellion in any form. Such practices work against you. To undermine the authority of one in authority over you can only be demoralizing to you and all who listen to you. If you are in an intolerable situation you are free to move on and find another manager worthy of your allegiance. Until then you can take comfort in knowing I am in authority over those in authority over you.

 

I have posted these messages for years without much reference to myself. Reading a blog posting from a friend made me realize that I should issue a disclaimer. I hope that you don’t get the impression that my life is a living expression of these words I hear from Jesus. I wish it were but in reality I am in tension between the righteousness I affirm and the reality of my life which includes weakness, selfishness, thoughtlessness, lust, and greed. I can identify with Paul when he says the good that I would I do not and the evil I would not I do. Through this I trust in Jesus who is in the process of delivering me and completing the good work he has begun in me.

I have a colleague (Teresa) who has been battling with cancer for some years now. At her last doctor’s visit on Thursday last week, she was told that the cancer has spread to her liver and vertebrae. She acknowledges Jesus as her healer and is asking for prayer. Can you please send out a prayer request to your mailing group for Teresa’s request?

...there is also a "Healing Cancer World Summit" starting tomorrow. It is a free online event that will last for
5 days, I believe, where health professionals will discuss the most effective ways to combating cancer.
You can go to renegadehealth.com/cancer to sign up for the event.

Hello,
Your blog posts have been a source of encouragement and blessing for me. I have been in instances where I have had to teadh other's truth's about the Father and have had to give a disclaimer as well that I 'know' mentally more than I 'know' through the experience of a changed life (in certain areas). You are definetly not the only one!

About 2 days ago I discovered a doctor online by the name of Thomas Lodi. Here is a link to his audio. (it's in 3 parts)

http://www.drritamarie.com/radio/2012/09/you-have-power-over-cancer/

At the end of show number 3, I believe, he says you can call his office and he will talk with paitents PERSONALLY .
If she (or yourself on her behalf) are interested, you might give him a call to get suggestions on what can be accomplished in the area that she lives in. His website is stopmakingcancer.com and the office's phone number is listed in the contact section.

"Father, may your mercies abundantly overflow your daughter. May she feel your presence and your love like never before. Reveal Yourself to her in life changing ways that she will look ever more like her beloved Christ. Thank you for her friend's love. Continue to use him as a vessel of honor for Your Glory. In the authority of Jesus I pray, Amen."

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?
