Extreme faith moves us from our comfort zone into the adrenalin-pumping, risky unknown. The prospect of failure is very real, but the potential for success overrides the fear of failure. “When He had come back to Capernaum several days afterward, it was heard that He was at home. And many were gathered together, so that there was no longer room, not even near the door; and He was speaking the word to them. And they came, bringing to Him a paralytic, carried by four men. Being unable to get to Him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above Him; and when they had dug an opening, they let down the pallet on which the paralytic was lying.” Mark 2.1-4Four faithful friends brought a helpless man to Jesus, whom they unwaveringly believed could restore him to wholeness. But the path to restoration was blocked by a thick crowd of people. Both daring and resourceful, these four men created a path to Jesus where one did not exist. Chopping a hole through someone else’s roof, they lowered their lame friend right into the presence of Jesus. Receiving more than bravely hoped for, this man was forgiven of sin as well as physically healed.  What do we believe so strongly that we are willing to bravely risk? Do we believe enough in the restorative power of God through Jesus that we risk sharing the gospel? Do we believe enough to faithfully pray for the miracle of spiritual and physical healing? Do we believe enough to chop holes through proverbial roofs to bring people into the presence of Jesus? You’ve likely heard it said, “nothing ventured, nothing gained.” In the realm of faith, this is especially true. If we do not risk acting in extreme faith, we will never know what God through Christ can and will do. Noah knew, as did Abraham, Moses, and countless other men and women of faith. It was their extreme faith in action that set them apart from those who sat idly by. Extreme faith is risky, but the rewards for those who “believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him” (Hebrews 11.6) far outweigh the risk. May extreme faith move us to the daring venture of acting upon that which we resolutely believe.  Steve Taylor  My other blogs http://thetruthrevolution.wordpress.com/https://kingdomdreamer.blogspot.com/https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NWPDT28Amazon ebook http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FQ1Q9GWAmazon paperback https://www.createspace.com/4500045 Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/azstevetaylor/ YouTube video channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxND_ZsDdWXURp9rg88YY7g [Read More]

Hope for Uncertain Times

To hope is human. We seem to be hardwired for hope - even the most pessimistic of us. However deeply buried, there is at least the slightest inkling that things just might get better. Some people brim with a sense of hope. They exude optimism because they are hopeful. Even against the backdrop of the general malaise that seems characteristic of our times, there is something within us that wants to reach forward to better times. We want to believe things will get better, but we are hard-pressed to point to any tangible and clear evidence to support such feelings. The reality check of economic uncertainty, military crises, violent natural disasters, and social and racial upheaval casts a gray shadow over our optimism. Our general hopefulness is a state of mind, rather than a fact of life.It is important that we set forth a working definition of hope. HOPE IS CONFIDENT EXPECTATION OF SOMETHING BETTER IN THE FUTURE. Hope without a foundation is mere wishful thinking.  Real hope, however, is based on specifics. It confidently expects very tangible things in times to come, and visualizes the roadmap to realization. It is so real that we can touch, taste, see, smell, and feel it! Read about Hope for Uncertain Times at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NWPDT28 [Read More]

What God says He will do, no matter how long it may seem to take from our vantage point. A great reassurance of that fact is found in these verses: "Then the LORD took note of Sarah as He had said, and the LORD did for Sarah as He had promised. So Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the appointed time of which God had spoken to him ... Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.”Genesis 21.1-2,5 Few stories seem more outrageous, or dare we say - unbelievable. But, the facts are verified. An elderly couple in their extreme old age DID have a son born to them, and the genealogy of Jesus can be traced back to them and this son. In essence, our very lives hinge on this fulfilled promise. God's timing is everything. Promises made are promises kept and fulfilled, no matter how long it make seem to take. The phrase, "at the appointed time," speaks volumes. What God promises and does, He does "at the appointed time." Many have wondered why Jesus has not returned to planet Earth yet. It's been over 2,000 years; perhaps He's not coming back at all. Remember that this event is also scheduled by our Father "at the appointed time." And who knows just how close we might be to that appointed time?We can live confidently, patiently, and expectantly today, knowing that all is under the jurisdiction of God's appointed time.SteveMy other blogshttp://thetruthrevolution.wordpress.com/  https://kingdomdreamer.blogspot.com/Amazon ebookhttp://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FQ1Q9GWAmazon paperbackhttps://www.createspace.com/4500045Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/azstevetaylor/YouTube video channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxND_ZsDdWXURp9rg88YY7g [Read More]

You likely have seen the recent first-ever picture taken of a black hole in space. Actually, the image looks a lot like a glowing donut approximately 55 million light years from earth - a nearly incomprehensible distance. It is a discovery that has generated considerable enthusiasm among the scientific community as they seek to know more about the origins of the universe.What I find significant about it is this: "The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge." Psalm 19.1-2 The significance of this historic black hole discovery lies in the message it is sending. It is yet another testimony to the magnificence of its Creator. It ought to invoke the response best summed up in a well-known hymn: "O LORD my God, When I in awesome wonder, Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made; I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy power throughout the universe displayed." (How Great Thou Art")The greatness of discoveries such as this famous black hole is in what we do with them. If they lead us to know and revere their Creator more, then they have been immensely valuable. SteveMy other blogshttp://thetruthrevolution.wordpress.com/  https://kingdomdreamer.blogspot.com/Amazon ebookhttp://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FQ1Q9GWAmazon paperbackhttps://www.createspace.com/4500045Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/azstevetaylor/YouTube video channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxND_ZsDdWXURp9rg88YY7g [Read More]
