A life of gratitude is a healthy life in the truest sense. Those who "Bless Yahweh ... bless His holy name ... And forget none of His benefits" (Psalm 103.1-2) are those He has promised He will pardon "all your iniquities ... heals all your diseases ... redeems your life from the pit ... crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion ... satisfies your desire with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle." (Psalm 103.3-5). Now those are some extraordinary benefits!Much has been written about the power of gratitude. There is medical evidence to support the healthy benefits of grateful people. Greater energy. Less sickness. More restful sleep. Less stress.Grateful people are optimistic people. The "attitude of gratitude" focuses, not on what we don't have, but what we have in abundance from our Father. As the hymn states, "count your blessings; name them one by one." A deliberate effort to focus on what we've been given surely unleashes God's best within us.No one has a trouble-free life. Fact is, kingdom citizens can anticipate more challenges than any people (Acts 14.22). But, we best navigate through "tribulation waters" with a grateful attitude. The test is not in what happens to us, but in how we respond to what happens to us. "The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away. Blessed be the name of the LORD." (Job 1.21)May we ever be focused on the abundant blessings our Father has given to us.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]

today's devotional

There is far more to praise and worship than what typically happens in a Sunday morning church service. I value corporate worship as much as anyone, but the dynamic of such times comes from those who are personal worshippers the other six days."Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples. Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; Speak (or meditate on) of all His wonders. Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad. Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually." (1 Chronicles 16.8-11)We are called to freely and gladly participate in what has been called, "the sacred romance;" the love relationship between Creator and creation. Giving thanks, making His deeds known, singing praise, talking about and meditating upon His great wonders, exalting His name, and continually seeking His strength and face are not obligatory duties to be performed. Rather, these are free and joyful expressions from those in love with their Creator Father.Couples in love need no prompting in expressing their love for each other. So it should also be with those who have a profound and heartfelt love for Yahweh.May our expressions of praise and gratitude not be forced, but freely and lovingly offered. And not just on Sundays, but every day.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]

What's new? How often have you asked, or been asked, this question? It is anticipated that life is a discovery of new things."Sing to the LORD a new song! Sing to the LORD, all the earth! Sing to the LORD! Bless his name! Share the news of his saving work every single day! Declare God’s glory among the nations; declare his wondrous works among all people because the LORD is great and so worthy of praise." (Psalm 96.1-4 CEB)Church worship styles seem to polarize around contemporary or traditional music. Given the admonition of Psalm 96.1, a case seems to be made for new, contemporary music. But, music style misses the point. What new insights and experiences bring newness to your worship? What are you discovering about Your Father, and His Son, that you didn't know yesterday? The "new song" can be the latest Christian composition, or a very old hymn. What makes it a "new song" is the fresh discover and excitement you've found in your daily walk, and of which you have shared and testified to. It's a new song to those who have never heard.Psalms such as Psalm 96 bristle with Spirit energy. The Psalmist obviously found new energy and joy in his discovery and proclamation. May we discover and sing a song today as well!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]

It sounds like a very mundane assignment. They kept watch at night, and were responsible for opening up in the morning. But, their task was more important than it might seem."the four chief gatekeepers who were Levites, were in an office of trust, and were over the chambers and over the treasuries in the house of God. They spent the night around the house of God, because the watch was committed to them; and they were in charge of opening it morning by morning." (1 Chronicles 9.26-27)The Levites were the tabernacle security team. They were watchman over the facility, and over its treasures. Their task was to make certain that nothing deterred the people of God from worship and devotion.A similar task was entrusted by the apostle Paul to elders from the city of Ephesus: "Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood." (Acts 20.28)The service and worship of the people of God must be guarded at all costs. Nothing matters more than true devotion, service, and worship of Yahweh God through His Son. Elders, in particular, have this task of being "gatekeepers" of the household of God; sparing it from anything dangerous and subversive. They are the night watchers who guard the rich treasures of a people destined for immortality in the kingdom of God.By extension, all who members of the family of God are entrusted with the care of the household of God. The good of all is the highest priority. "Be devoted to one another in brotherly love" (Romans 12.10)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]
