GOT A SECOND:
KEY TO FOLLOWING JESUS
Pride is not always conscious arrogance. Mostly it’s subconscious self-sufficiency.
It’s when we cease walking in our own strength that we follow Christ. And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
-Luke 9:23 Walk well,

Dry Creeks In Your Life Have you found yourself in a season where what was once good, has dried up,and you look around asking God what happened? Maybe it’s time to get up and move on like Elijah did. There is a new season waiting to bless you and for you to bless others through your willingness to follow God’s direction. Much Love & Respect,a

Live Your Life With Purpose
You are no accident. God created you with His intention for a very special purpose. Take charge and responsibility for your life and know the blessings that await. “casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,”

God placed two words on my heart for this year. Purposeful and Intentional. These words were meant to bless me by sharing them with you. We naturally respond to situations through emotion and action. Often times, the outcomes aren’t what we expected or wanted. Yet, we find ourselves unable to apologize, afraid of the consequences or just ashamed of what we’ve done. Allowing a single breath to pause before we react, is part of living with intention. Taking the split
My oldest brother sent me an email. It broke my heart. He’s not far from 70 years old. He, like me and our 5 siblings have suffered greatly from past pain. I was lied to most of my life by so many well-intended people. Guess what? Time does not heal all wounds. Please, take the time to read the proof: Scott after we moved to…it was me, sister, sister and brother. He was just a little bitty baby. Daddy put up a basketball hoop.
I would go watch the high school team practice,
ANXIETY?? QUICK WORD ABOUT STRESS RELIEF:
There is a direct correlation between humility and stress relief. Only when we humbly surrender every circumstance of life to His care is anxiety alleviated. Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.

Linger In God’s Spirit Let’s make the time to pray, and when we do, let’s not treat the time like a to do wish list. Slow down and spend time in the relationship with our Father. Allowing the Holy Spirit to make that connection is an incredible experience. Let’s talk about how.

Don’t Miss Your Future By Looking Back God has a blessing for us, but we waste more effort looking back than we do pressing forward. Eyes on the prize!!

Do This Before Asking God To Change Others… Do you pray for God to change other people? Think about this for a second.
1-Are your prayers Spirit centered, and not self-centered?
2-Are you spiritually ready to accept the blessing of an answered prayer”
3-Before you ask God to change someone else, pray that He changes you first so others may see the Christ in you. First become the vessel God needs you to be to receive His blessing. Much Love & Respect, Scott #ReligionandSpir
Lion Taming What lions are lurking to rip you to shreds. Are your lions named for past pains, Regret and Guilt? Do you feel like Daniel in the lion’s den? If so, there is no fear of the beasts. God will protect you and bless you even in your darkest times. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”1 Peter 5:8 #Men #ScottSilverii #manhood #LionsDen #HolySpirit #Christ #Bible #God #Jesus #Devoti
In Due Time…God’s Got A Blessing For You God is going to bless you, but you must become the vessel to receive that blessing.

What Golden Calf Are You Worshiping? Studying Exodus I read over Chapter 32, and the golden calf. I wondered how could they be so quick to turn their backs away from God after everything He’d done for them? But I understood that we do the same thing when we create our own golden calves. It might be our job, or hobby, or new girlfriend or even our kids. Let’s not put God in a box, and definitely not in some artificial idol where we define who He is. Allow the Holy Spirit to bl
God’s Words For Your New Year: Purposeful and Intentional 2018 was full of blessings and lessons. We’re excited to see what these next 365 days have in store. One thing I know for certain is that God is in control. Leah & I press into this reality daily, and while it takes a constant pursuit, the tangible results are a real, loving relationship with Him. For me, that relationship serves as a mirror for how I am to love and serve my wife. Marriage is God’s covenant creation af
Building A Better Man Men have been under the gun since…well, the very beginning. So what are our options? The only true option is to move forward toward building a better man. But throughout time, men have amassed personal pain along with their earthly accomplishments. A big part of manhood is silently enduring the hurt as a wayward medal of valor. It’s left us wounded, more fragile than we’d ever acknowledge, in an unwelcome transition of gender roles, and unsure where to s
Incredible night of worship at Gateway’s Men’s Summit 2018 Slow Your Roll Visiting a church while out of town many years ago, I was told to “Slow your roll,” during worship. It seemed they didn’t “like” when people raised their hands in praise. Only the Holy Spirit fled from that place quicker than I did. I’m in 2 Samuel this week and was reminded of that event while studying the 6th chapter. It details the newly crowned king of Israel, David’s response to criticism of his “r

That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. Genesis 2:24 Priorities must be proven in real terms, not just words. • Four ways we prove priorities: 1. Sacrifice – “I will give this up for you.” 2. Time – “I will spend quality time with you.” 3.
