"Wisdom Becomes You" October Daily Devotional Begins on Monday. "Tune Your Ears..."

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

Proverbs 2:2-5, (NLT) Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding.  Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God.

Tune in for a daily devotional from the Book of Proverbs, from wisdom insights throughout the Word of God, and from my book, "The House of Wisdom."

Each day at 4:00am EST, you can logon at www.NewCovenant.org. If you subscribe to this blog (look for the link on this page), you will receive posts to your email each day.

Read the scriptures, reflect on the devotional insight, and continue in your prayer time with the Lord.

"Wisdom Becomes You!"

Choose Your Mindset

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

The difference between struggling and quitting mindsets (SQM) vs. struggling and persevering mindsets (SPM) are entirely different. One or the other mindset will be dominant in you depending on which one you feed.

1. Short attention span, so not enough time is given to find a solution
2. Glass is “half empty”
3. “I’m tired!“
4. Obstacles become impassable barriers
5. People viewed as a hindrance
6.  Permit distraction to alleviate the pain of struggling 
7. Misery loves company

1. Willing to study to gain understanding
2. Glass is “half full“ going on full
3. “I’m tired, so I’ll rest and get back in the saddle tomorrow”
4. Obstacles are an opportunity to find a better way
5. God is for me, no one can be successfully against me
6. People are a resource, but God is my Source
7. Remove distractions to make room for strength
8. Stay out of the misery room

(Audio) From Conformed to Transformed

Monday, September 17, 2018 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

Romans 12:1, Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. 

We have read this verse for years. It describes a process at work in you through Christ. It is NOT a “to do” list. God is working with you, where you are, as you are, with what you have now, to TRANSFORM (or transfigure) you! He doesn’t need any other ingredients other than you and Him!

You cannot conceive of what God empowered transformation will do in you, because the process has to be lived. The process begins with, "...offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship." Give yourself to God in a fresh way. 

Getting into the process of being positively transformed begins with recognizing how you are being negatively conformed. Conformity to unhelpful things is the biggest enemy to transformation in helpful things.

(Video) Hope, Opportunity, and Inspiration from Africa / Conversation with Daniel Muiruri from Kenya

Friday, September 07, 2018 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

On Wednesday, September 5, I sat down with Bishop Daniel Muiruri from Kenya, Africa and Dr. Kenneth Sullivan, Sr. from Indianapolis, Indiana. Bishop Muiruri is the pastor of Living Faith Outreach Center in Kenya and overseer to some 50 churches and many schools serving young children.

Watch the conversation below: (You can also listen and watch on the "Conversations In Focus" podcast)

Our discussion highlighted the blessings of ministry and educational opportunities in Kenya. We learned about Dr. Sullivan's vision to help establish churches and schools, something in which we have partnered. We also previewed our upcoming November mission to Kenya, Africa and showed photos of a new church building going up with the financial assistance of Dr. Kenneth & Joyce Sullivan and New Direction Church.

On the lighter side, we also talked about Bishop Dan's impressions of his first trip to the USA, as well as enjoying "delicacies" at Indianapolis culinary "landmarks" such as Long's Donuts, and Acapulco Joes Mexican restaurant. We also took him to Chicago to enjoy deep dish pizza at Lou Malnati's.

Enjoy this conversation. You will most certainly be blessed, inspired and entertained!

Join us Sunday, September 9 at 10:30am EST as Bishop Daniel Muiruri ministers at New Covenant Church!
