How would you like to see God show up big in your life during 2018? As I look over the course of my life, I have truly experienced God’s graciousness and kindness to me. And yet I want more. I want more of Jesus, more of His Spirit filling my life, family and church. I want to see God’s activity in me, around me, and through me during the next year.Well how can you make yourself ready for what God wants to do in your life this next year?
Come closer! Come near to me! This is the invitation of Christ’s manger. God could not stand for there to be distance any longer between himself and all of humanity. Sin left us broken, damaged and exiled from God’s holy presence. God gave humanity the law to show his standard, but his people continually rebelled against him, falling short of his standard, and showing how broken they really were (and are). God sent his prophets to call us back, but still there was rebellion in our hearts.
We were made for God’s presence. When God first made man and woman, they lived with Him in Eden. Eden means “delight,” and it was meant to be our home. Eden was the place of God’s presence. Humanity lived with God, fully alive to him in his presence.In Genesis 3, we have the story of humanity’s rebellion against God. We decided we wanted to be the center, in charge of our own lives. When man and woman disobeyed God, there were consequences, just as God said there would be.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
