Isaiah 57:15 (ESV) — 15 For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite.

  1. JT – “So here we go… in our time for WHAT ABOUT THIS…  –– time for some questions and answers. Feel free to submit your questions by EMAIL TO JT@bobbrubaker.com and we’ll get to the answer on an upcoming PowerBreak. Podcast…

 

  1. JTQuestion ONE - FROM THE SPIRITUAL SIDE OF LIFE….

 

Why is it that we that want to do what is right before God find ourselves in the difficult position of making a decision about what to do and finding it a hard thing to figure out?

 

  1. Bob

 

Simple answer: The life of faith is not easy!

Example of Abraham

 

Why so difficult – you are not answering according to the flesh…. Or your natural desires or whims…

 

Galatians 5:17 (ESV) — 17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.

2 Corinthians 10:3–5 (ESV) — 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. 5 We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,

PRIDE…

 

Isaiah 57:15 (ESV) — 15 For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite.

 

 

 

  1. JT – Question Two… “FROM THE MENTAL ASPECT” –

 

What is a good way to make sure we are trusting God and not just following our own whims when we make a decision?

 

  1. Bob

James 3:17 (ESV) — 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.

James 1:5–8 (ESV) — 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

  1. (JT) Third Question …. Turning to the physical aspect of life….

 

What are some advantages to cold water swimming?

  1. Bob’s answer…

What think you JT?
