Minister’s message.            

                                                                                                        

I once read a placard hanging at the entrance of the town of Port Sydney which says "Welcome!  We have 800 nice families and one old grouch!"  Interestingly I found myself trying to locate that grouchy person while I was there.  Negative thoughts can be contagious.  We can't stop those thought from coming.  But if we're not careful, we can verbalize it, and that sometimes talks ourselves out of a good opportunity, relationship, healing, restoration. 

In the Old Testament God gave Jeremiah a promise that he would "become a prophet to the nations."  But when Jeremiah heard this, he was very unsure of himself.  He said, "God, I can't do that.  I would not know what to say."  I love what God said, "Jeremiah!  Say not you can't do that!"  God stopped his negative words.

When negative thoughts come, it's easy to verbalize it like Jeremiah.  "I have many problems", I'm weak", "I'm discouraged because the dishwasher broke", "my dog is depressed", "I tried to come to church but the parking lot was too crowded"...God is saying, "Stop saying it!".  If you can't be positive at least be quiet.

We can't stop the thoughts from coming but we can choose to cast them down and dismiss them from our mind.  The truth is, we give life to what we say.

God said to Jeremiah, "Now, I have put my words in your mouth."  God wanted to make sure that the words that came out of his mouth were positive, hopeful, and strong.  Really, it takes our faith for us to say, "I'm blessed; I'm appointed; God is with me."  When we put the faith word(s) so to speak, in our mouth, the Bible promises that we see something on the inside that other people can't see.

My prayer is that one day we see a placard hanging at the entrance to our town, Coldwater/Eady that reads, "Welcome to Coldwater/Eady, we have 800 nice familites and none of us speaks like a grouch!  We all speak faith-filled words, "blessed, positive, strong..."  Amen
