Face Your Fear

Battles, Deliverance, Faith, Fear |

2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)  “For God  hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Proverbs 9:10 (KJV)  “The  fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” The famous Christian allegory, Hinds’ Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard, chronicles the journey of its main character, Much-Afraid, as she travels to her High Place. Along the […]

Doubt: The Antithesis of Faith

Doubt, Faith, Freedom |

Matthew 14:31 “And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?” James 1:6 “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.” Doubt is the direct antithesis of faith. Everything faith is, doubt is not. As believers, we like to think that we have faith, […]

Battling Depression

Anger, Battles, Death, Deliverance, Depression, Family, Healing, Love |

Job 30:16 (NLT)  “And now my life seeps away. Depression haunts my days.” Job was one of the most tormented men in the Bible. He lost his servants, his children, and then his health. Even his marriage suffered because of his unexplained losses and suffering. In chapter 30, Job is almost at his wit’s end in that he sees himself as mocked by others who despise him so much that they even despise his dogs. […]

What Can Stress Accomplish?

Stress, Trust |

Matthew 6:31-33 (NKJV)  31 “Therefore, do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Stress is costly. The American Psychological Association (APA) reported in 2016 that […]

Two Ways Anger Flows: Which will you choose?

Anger, Patience, Prayer, Purpose |

Proverbs 19:3  (NLT)  “People ruin their own lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the lord.” Matthew 5:22 (KJV) “But I (Jesus) say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment…” Have a short fuse, about to go off, blow your top, have a hair trigger temper, lose your cool, lay your religion down…these idioms are expressions of how we describe […]

Love One Another

Faith, Freedom, Goodness, Healing, Joy, Kindness, Love, Peace, Prayer, Purpose |

34 “So now I (Jesus) am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. 35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” John 13:34-35 NLT Emojis have taken over common, everyday conversation. We text and use them to signify emotions instead of saying the words. However, there is one emoji that is taking even the advertising […]

Loving Yourself

Goodness, Healing, Love, Prayer, Purpose, Worship |

“For in Him we live and move and have our being…” Acts 17:28a NKJV Many believers have the mistaken idea that all they are supposed to do is take care of others and deny themselves. It’s as if they live under a heavy spirit of self-sacrifice. You are to take care of others and share with them what you have (Isaiah 58:6-7), for everything you have belongs to God because nowhere in the Bible has […]

God’s Definition of Love

Love, Prayer, Purpose |

4 “Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud   5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NLT In Genesis 1: 27-28, God […]

Praise

Praise, Prayer, Success |

Psalm 50:23 “Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversations aright will I shew the salvation of God.” Praising God encompasses so many facets in that you praise God in your dance, in your shout, in your lifestyle, in your thanks, and in your conversation. Praise is more than a Sunday or Wednesday thing. It is every day and it is in every part of you. Whatever you do, you do […]

Healing

Faith, Freedom, Goodness, Healing, Joy, Love, Praise, Purpose, Worship |

Malachi 4:2 “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.” Healing is not some once in a lifetime occurrence, nor is it limited to a select few. It is meant for everyone, especially the believer. In fact, Jesus called it “the children’s bread” (Matthew 15:21-26). However because of His compassion, Jesus did […]
