Perception in the Storm

This really challenged me. Faith is the currency of heaven. It’s the only thing that pleases God. I have to ask myself sometimes, how much do I really trust Him?

The Life Church of Des Plaines

clinton-naik-176636Psalm 34:1-2 “I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.”

I’ve read that verse so many times, but is His praise continually in my mouth? Do I trust Jesus in the midst of a storm? Do you?

Pastor answers the question, What do you do in the storms of life? “See the Lord as bigger. Take a magnifying glass and change your perception. God doesn’t get bigger, you just see Him differently. Bless Him!”

“How do you see God? There are only two ways to make God bigger. He doesn’t change. He’s immutable. You can’t change God. The will of God is the will of God. You can’t control Him. In order to magnify Him, you can only change your perception of Him and…

Dream Challengers from Hell

The Life Church of Des Plaines

0_rkj9_kw7g-zachary-bedrosianNeh 4:1-9 “But it came to pass, that when Sanballat heard that we builded the wall, he was wroth, and took great indignation, and mocked the Jews. 2 And he spake before his brethren and the army of Samaria, and said, What do these feeble Jews? will they fortify themselves? will they sacrifice? will they make an end in a day? will they revive the stones out of the heaps of the rubbish which are burned? 3 Now Tobiah the Ammonite was by him, and he said, Even that which they build, if a fox go up, he shall even break down their stone wall. 4 Hear, O our God; for we are despised: and turn their reproach upon their own head, and give them for a prey in the land of captivity: 5 And cover not their iniquity, and let not their sin be blotted out from before thee:…

A Devasted Devil

I’d sure like to give the devil a migraine!! Who’s with me?

Notes on A Devastated Devil

abrc7x4_gly-diana-simumpandeThe other night, my husband, Charles Li, preached a sermon on ‘A Devastated Devil.’ What gives Satan a headache? To me, that’s a great question because, unfortunately, in my life, I’ve made him smile all too often. I’d much rather be giving him a headache!

He gave an interesting comparison between the pro-choice’s rallying cry, “My body, my choice!” and the Body of Christ.

1Co 12:14  “For the body is not one member, but many.”

Here’s a direct quote from his sermon:

The Body of Christ is often described in Scripture as the Bride of Christ. Just as they fight for the protection of their own body, so must we fight for the protection of the Body of Christ. You are a hand, or a foot, a blood cell, in the Body of the Bride of Christ. You are part of an immune…

You Are Not Alone

You plus Jesus is a majority!

The Life Church of Des Plaines

iwv-bgqufao-ben-whiteDesperate people do daring things.

There are three you’s—the public you, the you around close friends, and the you when you’re alone. Jesus is interested in the you when you’re alone.

Elijah walked with God. He had a cave and got the victory all alone.

If you get the victory alone, you’ll have the victory in public.

Elijah got the victory proving God is God and defeated 400 prophets of Baal. Queen Jezebel threatened him and he feared for his life.

Cinderella had the ball, but then she had to go back to cleaning floors.

After the victory, be sure to go back to that alone place with God. Get to the point where even in public, you can close your eyes and be with God.

God plus you is a majority. You are NEVER alone!

Hannah was desperate. So, she went to the House of God and prayed. God…

Rise Up and Build

The Life Church of Des Plaines

iclzbvw5w5a-todd-quackenbushNeh 2:17-18 “Then said I unto them, Ye see the distress that we are in, how Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire: come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a reproach. 18 Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; as also the king’s words that he had spoken unto me. And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.”

Visions and dreams need legs and hands. A young man by the name of John Goddard at the age of 15 wrote and established 127 lifetime goals (bucket list). His goals included climb several mountains, learn French, Spanish, and Arabic, go around the globe, land on the moon, and read the entire collection of the Encyclopedia Britannica. By his death, he…

What Are We Building?

The Life Church of Des Plaines

plumbing-709631_1920Acts 2:46-47 “And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”

Mat 16:18 “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

What is the church?

Eph 2:21 “In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:”

1 Pet 2:5 “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.”

Eph 5:26 “That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,”

Willing Clay: The Path to Spiritual Maturity

Spiritual Maturity isn’t as hard as we can sometimes make it out to be, but there is discipline involved! Check out this post! 🙂

The Life Church of Des Plaines

Potter by DanIsa 41:25 “I have raised up one from the north, and he shall come: from the rising of the sun shall he call upon my name: and he shall come upon princes as upon morter, and as the potter treadeth clay.”

If you keep in mind the main point: you must internalize the word of God, this will go much quicker.

I’ll preface this with what The Lord spoke to me the other day while driving. “Some people have destiny written all over them. It’s too bad they don’t develop the maturity to achieve what they are meant to do.”

In simple terms, being mature is knowing what to do in any given situation. Full-grown, complete. In a time of crisis, we turn to those who are mature to lead us through.

God wants this church to become mature. God wants the individuals in this church to mature. Even children…
