This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Notes: Verse 3. Prophecy might
include foretelling of the future (Acts 11:28), but was more normally a
forthelling of God’s will for present ‘upbuilding’ and encouragement and
consolation’. In contrast to an
unintelligible ‘tongue’ it was readily understandable and practically relevant
to the hearers.
