Stay In God’s Plan - A Nugget of Gold  - By Dr. Luauna Stines

Dear Readers, when we understand the plan of God we can walk in the victory that has already been won. Why is it many never walk in the completed work that was done at the Cross of Calvary? I believe it’s because of the lack of knowledge. A powerful verse to really meditate on is, Hosea 3:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”

The price of rejecting the knowledge of God is far more than one can bear. We understand many walk in darkness and may be blind to the God’s Word. I too was once blind, until someone shared God’s Word with me. The eyes of my understanding were then opened to His light, the Truth that changes a heart and makes them brand new.

Many even called Christians, don’t believe God’s Word. They might believe some of God’s Word that pertains to their blessings only. But when it comes to something that goes cross grain against the desire of one’s flesh, the battle begins! God who gave His Word to Adam and Eve, yet Eve wanted the fruit. Satan deceived her and blinded Eve to the Truth. It is so important we study, we need to know Satan’s tricks or schemes if not we can become a victim of defeat, and become trapped in a web of darkness and deception.

Satan has a plan, he blinds one from the end result. I want to share a true story of a young woman a while back who came to our church. She was so talented, gifted, and could attract people to herself. For a year she was doing great. Leaving her old friends, and finding new ones. Then her old friends started calling her. She thought she would just hang out with them for a little bit. But in time she was hanging out with them more and more. She was still coming to church. One Sunday morning I noticed from the other side of the building something was up with her. I motioned to one of our workers I asked them to stop her before she leaves; I want to talk to her. She slipped out of the building; my assistant didn’t catch her before she drove out of the parking lot.

II Corinthians 6:14 “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?”

John 10:10 “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

Let’s remember and never forget Satan always has a plan! He has always wanted what belongs to God.

Ephesians 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

Long story short, the following week, I didn’t see her in church, sending someone to check on her. They found her ready for church, dressed and almost out the door, when she decided to sit in a chair by the door. She shot up a bag of heroin her old friends gave her, that day she overdosed and died. She was amazing, beautiful, and God had a great plan for her life.

Don’t allow your old friends to influence your life or steal God’s plan right out of your hands. Hold on dear saints, God loves you so much. We live in times of great temptation, don’t give in. Fight the good fight of faith.

What Is Your Life?

Sat, Jun 22, 2013

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Readers,

A powerful question? Not how is your life? This question is answered only by each person alone. You’ll never face a more serious question than this. I read a scripture in the Bible. James 4:14; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. In this text: It doesn’t say, what is life? Because if it did, nobody has an answer, and it doesn’t say, what is our life?

Three main questions come up in life; children ask; where did I come from?(You better answer them, or someone else will give them a wrong answer.) Maybe right now, you are asking another question: WHY I’m I here? Then when one is a bit older, one asks; Where do I go from here?

Some people say life isn’t fair! Some say; Life is feast, and another says life is a fast. One man says, life is a paradise, another says, life is like a prison. This question is very pointed, maybe very personal, and maybe even very painful. Maybe you can answer the question! What is your life; it’s a failure, it’s a success, it’s a disappointment!

God’s Word tells us, ‘Our life is like a vapor! It is like the steam that comes off the tea pot.

You try to get a hand full stream and it’s gone. Throughout the Word of God we see different descriptions to life as to something very swift! Paul says our life is like a tent, for a night, and then packed up and gone! Isaiah likens us to the GRASS.

Isaiah 40:7; The grass withers, the flower fades, because the breath of the Lord blows upon it; Surely the people are grass.

I Peter 1:24; All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away.

Psalm 103:15; As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes.

If this BIBLE is about anything at all, it is about life. Man in all his strength, doesn’t really understand life. One thing we can learn from history, we don’t LEARN from history. We have more war, sickness, broken homes, and broken lives! Man does have a blank inside of his soul. Where does one get life? Jesus came, that we may have TRUE LIFE.

John 10:10; … I have come that you may have LIFE, and have life more abundantly. Jesus said, “I’m the way the truth, and the LIFE! I’m the way: Without the way there is no GOING!

I am the Truth; without Truth there is no KNOWING! I am the life; without life there is no GROWING!

Jesus said I am the bread of life:

John 6:35; And Jesus said to them, “I am the BREAD of Life, “He who comes to ME shall never hunger, and he who believes in ME shall never thirst.”

Genesis 2:7; God is the breath of LIFE! And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

Job 12:10; In whose hand is the life of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind?

Psalm 119:50; This is my comfort in my affliction, For Your word has given me life.

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE? Got Jesus? You are loved, and so important.

Time a Valuable Commodity

Tue, Jan 8, 2013

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Readers,

The last year has  come to an end, and the New Year 2013 is come. Some are asking themselves, where did the time go? Time is so valuable, don’t waste it. It seems like just yesterday, I was 25 years old, what happened? Well, I won’t tell my age today, but 25 years have come and gone. Ecclesiastes 3:1; To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.

Wisdom in life comes from the One who created you. Genesis 1:26; Then God said, “Let Us make man in our own image, according to our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” You were born for greatness, created by the Master. You are special, and made with perfection. God has prepared a plan for your life long before the foundation of the earth. Like the great prophet Jeremiah 1:5; “before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you: and I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” We are called for a purpose in this life, no, maybe not a prophet, or great singer or a well digger. You are called for GREATNESS, God loves you so much.

God’s desire is to unfold His plan for your life, His love, His perfect will. Can mankind really know God’s plan for their life? Yes! How does one find this plan so divine? First, it comes in knowing the Master who created you in His image. Psalm 30:10; Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me; Lord, be my helper! Like a builder of a great house, he must look to the plans of the architect who prepared the plans, in order for the builder to build with success. If the builder takes short cuts, he wastes time, and things will need rebuilding. Throwing valuable time away, when all the builder had to do was follow the plans of the master architect. Don’t take short cuts with your life, time a valuable commodity. Some waste their whole life trying to build their own lives without the Master.

Can the clay on the potter’s wheel say to the potter, no I want my life like this or that? Isaiah 45:9; Woe to him who strives with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to the one who forms it, ‘What are you making?’ Or shall your handiwork say, ‘He has no hands?’ Isaiah 64:8 But now, O Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay, and you our Potter; and all we are the work of Your Hand.

How much time have you wasted trying to work out your own life? It’s not too late. Let GO, allow Jesus, the Almighty who loves you so much and has created you for greatness to have His will in your life. Psalm 37:3-5; Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.

How do you start the New Year off without throwing away anymore time? Ask Jesus to come and be your Lord, to forgive you of all your sins. Ask Him to be the Master Potter of your life, and you the clay. Let Him build your life the way He created you for, it’s much more rewarding. Find a great Bible believing church, learn His Word, and His perfect plan will soon unfold.

You are born for GREATNESS. You are special. You are loved. God bless you.

The Greatest Gift

Tue, Jan 8, 2013

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Readers,

It has been two years since I started Mission San Diego. I hold a church service on the street every Wednesday in the middle of the city. First service is on Imperial and 14th, one block from the homeless tent at 11 a.m., then at 12 noon a second service on Third and Broadway. Taking the gospel message of Jesus outside the four walls of the church, I set up my pulpit and microphone, I start with a prayer, song and then a Bible message.

Thousands of hurting people, many are broken inside, I can feel a force of darkness that controls so many homeless people. Yet, looking into their eyes, I see some desire to be free, but they have lost control, and are in need of Jesus.

People stroll by as I preach, beautiful women and men who have great jobs, yet they too are filled with fear. I meet many who have once been in high places with prestigious jobs, now wandering the streets overtaken in confusion of their minds, barely able to carry a normal conversation, with a stench so strong from not bathing, and clothes just as dirty.

At first I thought to myself, what I am I doing out here, is anyone listening? Yet people are coming for prayer, they are looking for Hope, JESUS is our HOPE. I know the Lord has me ministering on those streets on Wednesdays for a reason. Jesus hurts for people. Many great people give the homeless food, clean socks, and blankets, yet it is only JESUS who can change them from the inside.

Some people refuse the message of Hope and Salvation. Yet each week I must try to reach them before the trumpet calls, I Thessalonians 4:16-17. The TRUTH can set mankind free from sin! I see amazing people, young and old, black and white, rich and poor, and I am reminded, I too was in darkness, and lost without Jesus 33 years ago until someone interrupted my life while I was walking out of a 7-11 store. I was broken, successful in the eyes of the world, but bankrupted in heart. Scarred by sin, and walking in darkness, I was blind but now I see. I am saved to SAVE, why am I out on those streets?

Maybe a mother is praying for her wayward teenager a run away, and wandering the streets. Maybe a grandmother praying for her grandson bound on drugs. Maybe a wife and her children are crying out in prayer for their daddy who gave in to a state of despair.

Why a Church Service on the street? Over 250 people have come to Jesus since January 2010. One woman who prayed for her husband, who was bound on drugs for 20 years, came to Jesus; he walked up boldly to receive Jesus right on the street. The next week he returned, only this time, with the whole family, his two teen boys wept as they asked Jesus into their heart.

Is it easy for me to have a church service on the streets? No, many people make fun, and many mock. I Corinthians 1:18; For the message of the Cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to those who are being saved it is the POWER of God.

Every week Jesus is changing a life. One soul at a time I am watching the Holy Spirit move in His power. Another beautiful woman tormented by voices, is now learning to fight those forces in prayer and the Word of God. The streets are filled with people; some with their grocery carts, sit along the wall, and listen to the Word of God. Some leave the same; some are being transformed one sermon at a time. I see a GREAT need to gather in a harvest.

You may never step out on those streets, or even understand what I am saying. But I’m asking for your prayers. I am called to GO Forth. Thank you for your prayers. If you desire to help me reach the lost, please give through my website: www.atouchfromabove.org

I purchase Bibles for those who receive Jesus Christ as Lord. The greatest gift we can give at Christmas is JESUS a gift that lives on for eternity.

God bless you! I love you in Jesus. Turn your radio on Sunday 6-7 a.m. KPRZ 1210.

Hardest Hit, Don’t Quit

Tue, Jan 8, 2013

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Readers,

Sometimes we get hit with an unexpected blow. It seems like it comes right around Christmas time. Like the evil one is just waiting, and when you are just getting a step ahead, BAMM. Don’t let the evil one throw you off your course, stay strong through the storm. A powerful verse in Matthew 7:24-25; “therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to be a wise man who built his house on the ROCK. And the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the ROCK.”

Jesus is the Rock of Ages. Life is filled with unexpected circumstances, all kinds, a sudden death, sickness, marriage betrayal, a teenager who is haywire, or a letter in the mail with notice of losing your home, or being laid off from your job. The list goes on and on.

My dear friends, you can trust in the Lord, He promises to keep us in the palm of His hand. I think of Daniel being thrown into the lion’s den. In Daniel chapter six, God could have delivered him right out of the den. Instead He closed the mouths of the lions.

Three Hebrew boys, who wouldn’t bow to evil, were thrown into the fiery furnace in Daniel 6:23. God again could have delivered them right on the spot, instead God was with them in the furnace, and kept them from burning up in that fire. Another powerful true story is found in the book of Esther, chapter three. We find a man who loves God by the name of Mordecai, one man whose name was Haman, he hated Mordecai and longed to have him killed. Haman plotted to have him hung and built a large gallows. But God is always faithful to those who trust HIM in times of trouble. You will see at the end of Haman’s plot, he was hung on his own gallows.

Job went through very hard times, God restored all he lost. There are so many more wonderful stories of God’s love and faithfulness for those who will trust HIM. Are you hit with something unexpected this Christmas? Pray, cry out, Jesus loves you. Psalm 37:3; Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Proverbs 3:5-6; Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

Hold on, God will be with you. I love you dear one, and so does our Heavenly Father.

It’s Christmas Time

Tue, Jan 8, 2013

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Readers,

WOW, it’s that time of year, I love it, Christmas! We hear the songs all around, “Silent Night,” “Joy to the World,” and so many more amazing Christmas songs. I want to share with you today, don’t allow your mind to get caught up in the world’s way of thinking, “Happy Holidays.” When you greet someone, greet them with the Christmas spirit, “Merry Christmas” and smile real big.

Christmas is not about how much money you have to spend, or how many gifts you have to buy. Stop! Don’t spend what you don’t have. The greatest gift is you, your love, your kindness, a baked cookie and a warm smile is worth a million.

Years ago, before I knew what Christmas was really all about, I hated Christmas. I was sad, broken, a single mother, and just trying to make ends meet. It seemed like they never met. Then someone told me about Jesus, a baby born in a manger, a child who was born for my sins. Who lived and walked 33 years on the earth and did only good. Healed the sick, opened blind eyes, made the lame walk, and even brought deliverance to a few who were filled with demonic forces.

His kindness didn’t stop there, now grown, Jesus, willingly went to the Cross, the Lamb of God, who would take away MY sins. At that Cross forgiveness was offered to me and to all who would come to repentance. My need for a Savior was great, after all I knew I had done things in my life I personally needed to be forgiven for. Taking that first step of faith to come to Jesus was the hardest step ever, why? Because I couldn’t wrap my human mind and understanding around this amazing love. Looking back today, 33 years later, it was the greatest step I have ever taken in my whole life.

WOW, joy, unspeakable joy. A peace which surpasses all man’s understanding, and knowing I’m forgiven. To know my Lord and Savior’s love today is the greatest gift that I can give to all mankind, a gift which lasts throughout eternity.

Salvation is the greatest gift to give to all mankind. This gift won’t be thrown in the closet the day after Christmas or left outside to get rusted. Christmas is the greatest gift of all, God’s LOVE. Celebrate this Christmas wrapped in the Joy of the Lord.

In The Chicken Coop?

Tue, Jan 8, 2013

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Readers,

A hiker walking through the mountains in Canada came across a broken nest, looking around he discovered an egg. Picking up the egg he wrapped it and placed it in his backpack. Reaching his home he thought, maybe this egg can hatch. Having chickens he placed the bigger egg under his hen.

The hen welcomed the egg, and kept it just as warm as the other eggs. One by one the eggs started hatching, and to the hiker’s surprise the bigger egg hatched as well. The hen was the proud mother of all the hatched eggs. Teaching them to scratch for food in the chicken coop, the hiker watched as the strange fuzzy looking bird awkwardly followed the lead of the hen that hatched it.

At night just like all the other chicks it huddled under the hen at her clucks, they all found warmth under the hens wings. Time passed, and the bird was getting so much bigger, and still scratching for food like the other chickens. The hiker noticed this bird is really getting big. More time had passed, and its feathers started to grow into place. One day the hiker noticed another bird soaring back and forth above the chicken coop, getting his binoculars he realized it was a beautiful bald eagle. Its majestic wings spread, and it glided so smoothly in the air. Then the hiker noticed, the bird in the chicken coop kept looking up, he also noticed it was taking shape like the eagle. Yet it continued to scratch like a chicken, acting out like the other chickens.

The hiker built another addition to the coop, and separated the bigger bird, from his chickens. It was looking more and more like an eagle, yet its actions were like a chicken. The hiker noticed as he looked up at the eagle, soaring back and forth, with it’s screeching sound as if it was calling to the eagle in the chicken coop. Yet the eagle just glanced up from time to time. The hiker removed the wire from the top of the coop, and the hiker waited for the eagle to return. Day after day the eagle in the chicken coop just looked and glanced up as the other eagle seemed like it was crying out for him to RISE UP, get out of the chicken coop. Finally one day the hiker noticed the eagle in the coop was paying more attention to the other eagle in the air. Opening his wings trying to fly, it had never flown before, perching on the highest perch in the coop, his eyes continually following the other eagle soaring, he attempted again to fly. The other eagle continually screeching and flying back and forth the hiker said, “It was as if the eagle knew the other needed help to believe what he was born for.”

So many Christians are like that eagle, stuck in the chicken coop; not knowing you are born for greatness. You are created in the image of the Almighty God. When you discover what God says about you and then apply His Word to your life. You can soar to greater heights. Isaiah 40:31; But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like an eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Jesus loves you, don’t let the devil, or your own fears keep you in the chicken coop. Come to church, and let me teach you God’s Word, RISE UP.

True Love

Wed, Sep 26, 2012

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Readers,

I lived in Seoul, Korea and I heard a true story that touched my heart. Back when Korea was at war, the Communist enemy came in with a vengeance. The Korean people were hurting, starving, and broken and had to move fast to find refuge from the turmoil. Winter came and temperatures dropped to freezing. An 81/2 month pregnant woman fled for her life with others after her husband was killed. They ate what they could find under the snow as well as bark from the trees to keep their strength.

Moving slower the woman fell back, yet, thinking of her baby she kept moving, remembering a missionary camp not too far away. Suddenly the night came, and it began snow. Finding a place to rest and get out of the storm she hid under an old wooden bridge. The temperature was freezing, and suddenly she had one great pain after another and realized she was going into labor. She cried out but no one heard her as she gave birth. Seeing the beautiful baby boy she remembered the love of her husband. The baby was cold, and his lips turned blue. She took off all her clothes and wrapped the baby tightly in a bundle; she curled in a ball to keep the baby warm, and that night she froze to death.

The following morning the missionaries set out to see who they could help. One missionary heard a noise and told her husband to stop. Standing still they heard something again. Climbing down and looking under the old wooden bridge, they were shocked to see the frail naked body. The husband taking off his jacket covered the woman up and reached down to carry her to the car. All of a sudden the little bundle moved. He beckoned his wife who hurried down and saw the bundle move. She saw the baby’s beautiful dark eyes look up at her. They surmised she must have tried to reach the missionary camp.

The husband carried the woman, and the wife carried the baby to the car. They buried the woman at the camp, and knowing the war left many orphans decided they would raise the baby boy.

Now grown, and the war over, the boy loved his adopted father and mother. One day he asked how they acquired him. They told him how his mother gave birth under the old wooden bridge in the freezing night. They shared how she took off her clothes to keep him from freezing so he could have life.

A few days passed, and looking for the young man they found him on his knees at his mother’s grave. Weeping, and taking off his clothes, he cried “Oh mother, oh mother I will keep you warm; I love you mother.” The father, filled with compassion, wept to see his son so broken. He knelt beside him covered him with a blanket, and held him in his arms like a child.

That day at the grave the father shared the story how Jesus was stripped, beaten and laid down his life at the Cross of Calvary so we may live and have eternal life. That day Jesus came into the heart of that young man, and he became a preacher.

Dear friends, Jesus loves you so much. John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Look Where You Are Going

Look Where You Are Going

Dear Readers,

The other day riding my bicycle early morning after 6 a.m., the sun was just peeking through the clouds, with amazing colors only the Master from heaven could come up with. Oranges, pinks, gold, yellow, and the cloud formation had my eyes captured. Taken in by its beauty, I didn’t realize I was going over into the other lane, looking towards the direction I was looking up in the sky. I turned to see where I was going just in time before I got too far in the middle of the road. Whew, that was close, as the big truck came passing by at 65 miles an hour. “Look where you are going, because you are going where you are looking.” Reading in,

II Corinthians 4:18; while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Paul the Apostle is asking us to look with our SPIRITUAL eyes. Things all around us are subject to change, in one day your whole world can change. OPEN your eyes of FAITH; hold on to the promises of God’s Word. The Word of God will get you through all that’s in the natural. If you see only with your natural eyes you’re in trouble. Focusing on everything around you can be overwhelming. If all you see and look at is poverty, sickness, unbelief, fear, doubt, a terrible day, a terrible wife, a terrible husband, you will go where you are looking!

Keep your eyes on the eternal. Wake up knowing no matter what happens around you, Jesus has it all worked out. Hold on to God’s Word the Bible, it is a treasure chest of amazing strength, joy, healing, and victory. So many get into trouble, because they don’t watch where they are going. Be careful because you are going where you are looking. Keep your eyes on Christ, not the things of this world, or the trials that will come your way, KEEP YOUR SPIRITUAL EYES open, and focused.

The man or woman, who only looks through natural eyes, can’t really see at all. If all you see is the storm, then you will not see the storm calmer. If all you see is a falling economy, then you will not see the One who multiplies the fish and the bread. If all you see is a defeated marriage, then that’s where you are going. If all you see is sickness, you can’t see the healer. If all you see is the mountain in front of you, then you can’t see the mountain mover. Open your spiritual eyes dear one. WOW, what victory, when you do.

Angry In My Trial

Tue, Sep 11, 2012

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Dr. Luauna,

I’m going through such a hard time; I can’t believe God would allow me to go through so much. I feel surrounded by trouble and I’m mad! I thought being a Christian was better than what I had; I’m ready to throw in the towel. Signed Angry

Dear Angry,

Well, first of all, I was reminded of a song the Children of Israel sang after they crossed the Red Sea. A great song indeed, the only problem they should have sung that song on the other side before they crossed the sea. You see dear one, it is easy to sing a VICTORY song when you have the victory. Before the children of Israel crossed over, they were up against the great sea. And when they turned around their enemy was coming upon them with 600 warrior chariots, and Pharaoh’s army. (Exodus 14:1-12)

They were not singing, they were complaining. They were yelling at Moses, “You brought us out to this place to kill us!” They also thought about throwing in the towel, they yelled we want to go back in bondage to the Egyptians. All they could see was the circumstance before them. They did not really know the GOD they served, although He showed them His mighty power before many times over. (Exodus Chapters 6-12)

Moses knew God had a plan. God Almighty always has a plan! Maybe you are being tested. Sing a song in your time of testing! Don’t be found singing a victory song after you have spoken evil of God, and have torn down the faith of others because of your words. Sure the children of Israel sang a victory song on the other side. (Exodus 15:1-18)

Because the children of Israel didn’t learn to sing in their trial, a bad habit of complaining was formed. MOST of them died in the wilderness later. WHY? They were snared by their own words of DEATH, and they didn’t trust, believe and have faith that God IS ABLE. Sing a song of faith in your trial dear one, and God will get you through to the other side. OUR GOD is MIGHTY and ABLE! He’s working everything out for His GLORY. SO Sing! Sing and Sing. Psalms 101:1; I will sing of mercy and justice; to You, O Lord, I will sing.
