3 Ways to Know If an “Open Door” is from God


Just because an opportunity presents itself, and it looks appealing, doesn’t necessarily mean it is from God.

How often do we pause long enough to ask God if the decision we are about to make is actually pleasing to Him and helps us further His kingdom? Have we become more concerned with building our own kingdoms that we forget who it is we are supposed to be representing here? 

How then can you know with some certainty that the choice you are about to make has God’s approval? Here are three key points to ponder when making choices. Remember that God is not only interested in the BIG issues of life but every aspect of our lives. He cares for you to even number the very hairs of your head. Therefore there is nothing too small to take before God to get his input

“Saudi Arabia has taken the ‘strategic decision’ to acquire ‘off-the-shelf’ atomic weapons…”

A new report in the The Sunday Times suggests that Saudi Arabia isn’t waiting around to see how the negotiations end. They’re already making overtures on the international market, and they plan to join the nuclear club very soon:

Saudi Arabia has taken the “strategic decision” to acquire “off-the-shelf” atomic weapons from Pakistan, risking a new arms race in the Middle East, according to senior American officials.

The move by the Gulf kingdom, which has financed much of Islamabad’s nuclear programme over the past three decades, comes amid growing anger among Sunni Arab states over a deal backed by President Barack Obama, which they fear could allow their arch foe, Shi’ite Iran, to develop a nuclear bomb.

The agreement, which is due to be finalised by the end of next month and involves the permanent members of the UN security council and Germany, is designed to roll back part of Tehran’s nuclear programme in return for an easing of UN sanctions.

 

Pakistan has the world’s fastest growing nuclear arsenal and is nearby, which makes them a useful partner for Saudi Arabia. The above chart from the Federation of American Scientists predicts Pakistan’s nuclear expansion:

Study: The Stick Trumps the Carrot


The good news: A small stick will do.

Proverbs 13:24 (NIV)
24  He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him.

 

Apparently God’s word is proven once again to be the right path to take when it comes to child-rearing and discipline. A recent Washington University of St Louis study found that a stick beats the carrot when it came to the affect it had on a person’s behavior.

 

When  the study subject was given a reward for an answer their tendency was to give the same answer that provided the reward, but when punished for their answer the subjects took more time to ponder their decision. The bigger the reward the more the subject tended to answer in like manner. The reverse however held true that regardless of the size of the punishment, the subjects varied their answers more readily. Therefore if you wish to alter someone’s behavior it is better to use the stick and not the carrot approach.

Religious and political conservatives are complicit in the rise of the “no-fault” divorce policies in the United States, which has led to the dissolution of countless families in America in the last 40-plus years, a prominent conservative author asserted Friday.

It has been said that in order for evil to triumph good men and women simply must do nothing. The silence of the lambs is certainly deafening when it comes to cultural decay. I am afraid that for far too long our pulpits have remained eerily silent on issues that have proven to be detrimental to society has a whole. If the church is instructed to be the salt and light of the world, then its silence must be seen as culpability in societies decay.

 

Divorce, infidelity, promiscuity, fornication, the so-called sexual revolution has left in its wake a weaker societal fabric not a stronger one. The effects of this no-fault self-serving attitude toward fidelity in marriage has led to fractured families and has had a devastating affect the children of these broken homes.

 

Perhaps that is why Jesus said so clearly and plainly that God hates divorce. I sure wish the church hated it as much as God does.

 

And that is the way I see it what say you?
