Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb13th, 2016 Endure The Flames

Heart of Fire

 

Just as with gold and silver, the heart is only purified by fire. If you find yourself standing in the middle of the flames, with everything around you that you hold dear burning away fear not. God has not left you. He did not let you fall into the furnace while he was looking away. As unpleasant as it is to be told this, God not only placed you in the furnace, he is stoking the flames. As little as it may comfort you I compel you with everything within me to stand and trust him. Just as he did with the three Hebrew children, just as he has done with me repeatedly, he’ll be faithful to you. He is not about to let the flames destroy you. Let him burn away the dross in your life, for what will remain is what he designed you to be. Do not seek an exit. Do not run. For in due season you will behold the beauty of what he desires to create within you.

Talon’s Point of the Day – Oct.18th, 2015 Bury your gods

In January of 2014 I posted the following:

“That which you lust for you worship.  That which you worship is your god.” – Talon “You shall have no other gods before you.” – God, Exodus 20:3

Dear Christian, let us break out our metaphorical hammers and shovels, crush our gods, and bury them once and for all, for its a dangerous thing to wait until God himself does it for us.

Do you lust for material things? Perhaps a sports team or music figure has your passion? Or another person who isn’t your God given spouse? Dig deep in your heart, for God sees all.
