All My Thoughts On God

All Trey Murray’s Thoughts on God

Reset


“…SO THAT THEY MAY BE BROUGHT TO COMPLETE UNITY THEN THE WORLD WILL KNOW THAT YOU HAVE SENT ME AND HAVE LOVED THEM.” – Jesus’ prayer in John 17:23 As a lifelong video gamer, I am very familiar with the reset button. I’ve beef admonished by my dad many times for angrily pressing the reset … Continue reading "Reset"

Waiting for God


Read Psalms 37 Many times in school and in life, I have watched bullies, criminals, and negative people succeed while I struggle. I used to think God was punishing me for something if these people were succeeding. I have since through counseling and fellowship with other believers, come to realize that your deeds do not … Continue reading "Waiting for God"

Knowledge


Read Proverbs 9:1-18 King Solomon was thought of as the most wise person of his time. He asked for and was granted vast amounts of knowledge by God. He was rewarded for his pursuit of knowledge by being allowed to build The Lord’s Temple. This was a big deal, his father, David wanted to be … Continue reading "Knowledge"

Worry


“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and … Continue reading "Worry"

Stop Being So…”Christian”


God doesn’t need you to follow other Christians in social media In the days since the Supreme Court decision and really every day I have logged in, people professing to be Christian have clogged my news feed with shared memes and messages the number of which I never experienced with chain email messages. While we … Continue reading "Stop Being So…”Christian”"

Prophet and Priest


Read: Mark 1:21-28 When Jesus went to the temple to teach, many today miss the significance. Jesus was a child the first time, and a carpenter by the time this passage takes place. Only priests anointed by God could prophesy in the temple. Yet, when Jesus did this, He did it with the full authority … Continue reading "Prophet and Priest"

Free Will


Read Zechariah 2 Some of the founding fathers of America were deists in their religious beliefs. That is to say they believed God created everything, set it in motion, then stepped away and left it all alone. There was a time when I believed this might have been true. So many things were going wrong … Continue reading "Free Will"

Only God Can Judge Me


Read Romans 14 Only God can judge me. It is a phrase going around flippantly on Facebook. In regards to what is right before God concerning eternal salvation, that is completely true. The more strange, unusual, or repulsive a person is, the more we should welcome them and treat them as family. Being a Christian … Continue reading "Only God Can Judge Me"

Karma


Read Luke 6:27-36 Karma is defined by definition.com as the cosmic principle according to which each person is rewarded or punished in one incarnation according to that person’s deeds in the previous incarnation. I hear this so often from non-believers and believers. Believe it or not, karma is not a Christian belief. God is about … Continue reading "Karma"

Trust Yourself?


Read Psalms 49 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.” – Proverbs 3:5-7 Trust is a very treasured thing. … Continue reading "Trust Yourself?"
