Heart of the Father

As I look out my window and see trees and blue skies it is very easy for me to feel as if this is the world in which we live. My home is peaceful and other than the hustle and bustle of a family living within, there is a tremendous calm.
 
Let me contrast that to the fear, heartache and misery I see every time I hear the news or see a social media feed. It feels like a hopeless sea of hatred, violence and unrest. We see crisis after crisis and endless tears being shed.
 
As I sit down to pray and listen, I hear, “Come to me all you who are weary and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”- Matthew 11:28-30.
 
The Lord sees the anguish and heartache in the world today. He tells us to come to Him to find our comfort, our peace and our source. He is what we need in this season of so much turmoil. As we watch others go through hurt, we are to be filled with a heart of compassion. The verse above shows us the heart of a father.
 
Our Lord has a heart of compassion and mercy. John 11 tells us about how Jesus came upon the scene of his friend Mary weeping for her brother. Jesus was deeply moved in spirit and JESUS WEPT. You may wonder, “Why did He weep when he knew he was going to call Lazarus back to life?” Jesus saw the heartache. He was and is still a compassionate Lord. Over and over the Word describes Jesus as truly seeing the broken, hurting and hopeless. Jesus came to heal and restore. These are the people he came for.
 
In this season of division and pain, we are called to unite as brothers and sisters in Christ. We are called to ask the Lord to break our hearts for what breaks His heart. Do not stop there. Take another step and ask the Lord how you can best be his hands and feet. We are called to put a guard over our tongues. Speak softly, thoughtfully, and with compassion. If what you are about to say will not lift someone else up, stop.
 
If you feel helpless to make a difference, start at home! Is your home full of God’s peace? Can you make a difference for a neighbor or someone you run into at the grocery store? Can you reach out to a friend you haven’t checked on in awhile and pray peace over them? The Holy Spirit is always speaking to us, ready to give words of compassion. We just need to listen and obey.
 
Genesis 1:27 – So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
 
God created each of us in His own image. As you look at and respond to others, remember that they also are created in the image of God. We are each created to have a heart of compassion, no matter the circumstances.
 
Psalm 103:11-13 – For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
 
People will not know we are Christians by how loud we are but by the love we show, through our words and through our actions.
 
Our time here on the earth is not long. We have only this time to show the heart and love of the Father to those around us. May God touch your spirit with compassion and love for those around you. If you have this desire, please pray this prayer today:
 
Dear Jesus,
I pray you give me a heart of love and compassion. To step boldly where you tell me to and step back as you lead. Please let my words be your words and my actions line up with the desires you have for my life. Please help others to see you through me. I give my whole life over to you. Use me as you see fit. In Jesus Mighty Name – Amen.
 
Philippians 3:20 – But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.
 
In love, 
Kathryn Broadwater

We Have Great News!

High Point Family!
 
We have great news! We will be meeting LIVE IN THE SANCTUARY this Sunday, May 31 at 9 & 11 AM.
 
We love you, we miss you, and we are so excited to be together again!
 
Please know that there is no pressure to attend if you do not yet feel comfortable. You can still join us online until you are ready to come back.
 
As we reopen, we’ve been asked to follow these guidelines to keep everyone safe and protected.
 
  1. If you or anyone in your household has symptoms, we ask that no one in your household attend service.
  2. Services will begin promptly at 9 and 11 AM and our main doors will open at 8:30 and 10:30 AM respectively.
  3. Coffee will be prepared and served by our cafe team and available only 30 minutes prior to service start.
  4. You are welcome to wear a face mask or gloves if you wish, but it is not required.
  5. We will observe social distancing on the property at this time, including seating and row spacing in the Sanctuary.
  6. Since we will not have children’s classes or nursery yet, please bring your children to service with you. We will have an activity bag for them!
  7. Persons from the same household sitting together would help us to maximize our seating during this time. Ushers will help you with seating.
  8. For your safety, all touched surfaces will continually be cleaned and sanitized before, during, and after the services.
  9. We will temporarily clear the building from 10:15-10:30 to sanitize for our 11 AM service.
  10. We love you and appreciate your patience and cooperation during this time.
 
We have taken enhanced health and safety measures—for you, our other church attendees, volunteers and staff.
 
We look forward to seeing you this Sunday!

God’s Favor is for Today!

Happy May to all of you wonderful, amazing children of the Most High God! Easter and Spring are both magnificent reminders of God’s love. Whatever challenges you are currently facing, Jesus has made a way to victory! With the current virus situation going on and many places closed, the Lord has been reminding me in prayer each morning this week — HIS THRONE ROOM IS ALWAYS OPEN!
 
Speaking of His throne room always being open, we had something unique happen at our house this week. Shaun had the random thought that he should put his hand behind our dresser drawers (which are very hard to pull out) to see if any papers had fallen behind. When he did, he pulled out one neat, clean paper that neither of us remember ever seeing before! We have no idea where it came from. Across the top it says “Favor Confessions,” and it shares many scriptures that are written in first person. We took this as a sign from God that we are supposed to be declaring His word regarding favor much more right now, not only over our family, but over each one of you! (I’ll share some of these confessions with you at the end).
 
 
God has favor and peace on His mind for you. It is essential to our faith and victory that we keep God’s word and promises in our eyes, ears, and mouth during this time so that we don’t yield to fear and unbelief. I’ve noticed that it’s times like these in which God loves to give the biggest breakthroughs. It’s just more proof that He’s the God of the impossible!
 
 
This week, instead of going to a specific reading place during my time with the Lord, I have flipped my favorite Bible open randomly. For four days now I have landed on Isaiah 43, in which I have several verses highlighted. It’s like God speaking directly to me every morning to make sure I stay in the right frame of mind. I’d encourage you to highlight them in your Bible, too! Here they are:
 
 
Isaiah 43:1-3 (NLT) “…Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.”
 
Isaiah 43:19-20 (NLT) “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. The wild animals in the fields will thank me, the jackals and owls, too, for giving them water in the desert. Yes, I will make rivers in the dry wasteland so my chosen people can be refreshed.”
 
Isaiah 44:3 (NLT) “For I will pour out water to quench your thirst and to irrigate your parched fields. And I will pour out my Spirit on your descendants, and my blessing on your children.”
 
 
Aren’t these encouraging words? God has a plan for you and your family! Do not be afraid! Keep your eyes on Him and your words on His promises! I’ll wrap up today with some of the favor confessions that were on the paper we found!
 
 
1. The favor of God is on me and goes before me. I live in the state of God’s favor every minute of every day (Rom. 5:2).
 
2. I am growing in divine favor (2 Peter 3:18), and I expect it all the time.
 
3. The favor of God produces supernatural increase and promotion in my life (Genesis 39:21).
 
4. The favor of God produces restoration of everything the enemy has stolen from me (Exodus 11:3).
 
5. The favor of God produces great victories in my life in the midst of great impossibilities (Joshua 11:20).
 
6. The favor of God causes policies, rules, regulations, and laws to be changed and reversed to my advantage (Esther 8:5).
 
7. The favor of God produces battles won which I won’t even have to fight because God will fight them for me (Psalm 44:3).
 
8. Thank you, Lord, that you will be leaning toward me with favor and regard for me, rendering me fruitful, multiplying me and establishing and ratifying your covenant with me (Leviticus 26:9).
 
9. Thank you, Lord, that I walk in favor with You and with man (Luke 2:52; Acts 2:47).
 
10. Thank you, Father, that Your favor is on me for a lifetime (Psalm 30:5).
 
 
With love and peace, 
Pastors Shaun & Amy
