I declare in Jesus’ name I belong at my Heavenly Father’s table. He keeps no record of my wrongs so I will pull up a chair! I am welcome to His amazing provision and presence every day. 


When you become part of this great big family of believers, you also inherit a great big set of family values that come from the heart of the Father Himself.

You learn to make a big deal out of what He makes a big deal out of. As you magnify the Lord, it becomes clear what things you should blow up and bring attention to. You will also understand what things to dial down because the Lord isn’t in them. Remember, not all good things are God things!

There are lots of people who never master the art of upgrade or get the fever for forward. But that’s not you!

Since you are different, it stands to reason you are going to make a big deal out of things others do not, like buying girls out of sexual slavery, or feeding homeless people, or giving backpacks filled with school supplies to kids in your town. 

I have found the values of those of us who journey in the fast lane are quite a bit different from the values of the world. You’ll see that too, the longer you walk with Jesus. 

Do you remember the lessons of the wilderness?

When you learn the lesson, you learn to have a high priority for the things you were taught – God loves you unconditionally, He provides all your needs and He sees you as an overcomer, not a loser! You are a mighty warrior for good, so jerk that pistol and get to work!

“Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.” – Romans 12:21
