Trusting God’s Character

“You are good and do good” Psalm 119:68 We have to keep in mind that our Christian life will never be void of periodic suffering. Nobody likes the word, “suffering.” Nonetheless, that word is found in Hebrews 5:8 – So even though Jesus was God’s Son, He learned obedience from the things He suffered. The verse preceding this scripture states that during the days of Jesus’ life on earth, He cried out to God in pain and wept in sorrow as He anticipated​ His death. Did you realize that even Jesus struggled with the will of God for His life? […]

Peace Signs

“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” Isaiah 26:3 We can’t get very far in our quest to know God without needing His peace. Jesus, the Prince of Peace, said that the people who go out of their way to make peace will be blessed and shall be called the children of God. Obviously, we can’t find the peace Jesus is referring to outside of God. Only the Lord can teach us how to be at peace with everyone, to be at peace even with conflict around us on […]

Going Beyond Average

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think…” Ephesians 3:20 Deep down inside, don’t you feel as though God has called you to something beyond, “normal?” It is one of those inherent, essential qualities that God has put inside our hearts. We have this inward knowledge that our lives are supposed to be about something great. But figuring out what that, “something greater” is, can be difficult. Are you at that place in life where no matter what you have, who you know, or what you have accomplished, there is still […]

Navigating our Journey

“Well done, good and faithful servant.” Mat 25:21; 23 The Christian life is the ultimate journey. It is the greatest adventure that we can experience in this life. To serve the King of kings is the noblest cause that anyone can have. Every Christian has a, “calling” that is greater than any earthly office or position. Before we start any journey, it helps to know our desired destination. If we don’t know where we are going, we will experience a lot of confusion and frustration in our quest. What is our destination? Our destiny is simply to please God. We […]

The Winning Attitude

‘You armed me with strength for battle.’ Psalm 18:39 NIV Each of us is fighting a battle of some kind, but not all of us are winning. Those who win come in many different varieties but they all have one thing in common: a faith that refuses to quit! Nobody had more struggles in life than David, and he understood the importance of maintaining the right perspective. He said, ‘You armed me with strength for battle.’ The grace you receive from God will always be equal to the challenges you face. Always! Did you know that Admiral Lord Nelson, England’s […]

Your Today Is Connected To Your Tomorrow

‘Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.’ Ecclesiastes 9:10 NIV What you are doing right now might seem insignificant and unrewarding, but it could be preparing you for something God wants to do through you in the future. The Bible says, ‘It is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.’ (Philippians 2:13 NKJV) There’s a saying: ‘Nothing is lost in God’s economy,’ and it’s true. When Daniel Webster started out as a lawyer he took a case for a fee of just twenty dollars. The case turned […]

Turn to God’s Word!

‘My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.’ Psalm 89:34 NKJV Medical experts say that every one of us will experience depression in some form during our lifetime. A large portion of the population wakes up each day in a cloud of gloom. You may be one of them. A popular children’s book is called Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Alexander falls asleep with gum in his mouth​ and finds it in his hair upon waking. His breakfast cereal box lacks a toy in the bottom, […]

You Must Know Your Life’s Purpose

‘For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works.’ Ephesians 2:10 NKJV The Bible says that ‘we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.’ (Ephesians 2:10 NLT) Before you decide on a career or what you’ll devote your life to, seek God for guidance. Nothing can take the place of knowing His will. If you don’t know it, you’re likely to spend your life doing the wrong things. And even if you’re well-paid, you’ll experience emptiness and lack of fulfillment​t […]
