Voice of Truth

WHEN THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH COMES, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL THE TRUTH. JOHN 16:13 When we find ourselves in a tough place and searching for answers, we want to hear the voice of truth above all else. We have our own internal voice, the voices of family and friends, the voice of the […]


How to Get Past Regrets

“Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands” (Isaiah 43:18-19 MSG). How often do you play the “If only” game? If only […]


Integrity vs. Popularity

“Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels” (Luke 9:26 NIV). One day, you’ll give an account of your life before God. When you keep that in mind […]


What Can I Do to Help?

“Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:1-2 A few years ago a friend of mine joined the staff of a […]


What Does God Want While You Wait for an Answer?

“Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act” (Psalm 37:7a NLT, second edition). What does God want you to do while you’re waiting on an answer to your prayer? Psalm 37:7 says, “Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act” (NLT, […]



WE HAVE HIS STRENGTH Since the Apostle Paul says that we “can do all things through Christ Who will strengthen us,” (Phil 4:13), we must accept the opposite of this statement as true, which means that we can’t do anything without Christ or in our own strength. And this is just what Jesus said to […]


Go tell it on the Mountain

During the Christmas season we are awed by the fact that God would send His one and only Son into the world. Jesus Christ left the comfort of heaven to take on a human body so that we could have a relationship with God and everlasting life. It’s amazing that God gives us grace and […]


Learn to Let Go and Let God

The Bible is the perfect place to turn when you are going through rough times. “Cast your cares on the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken” (Psalm 55:22). These are true promises, with the seeds of inner peace hidden in them. But it’s easy to misread these […]


To Change How You Act, Change the Way You Think

“Let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes” (Ephesians 4:23 NLT, second edition). Change requires new thinking. In order to change, we must learn the truth and start making good choices, but we also must change the way we think. The battle for sin starts in your mind, not in your behavior. The way you […]


You Already Have God’s Acceptance

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light” (1 Peter 2:9 NIV). Most of us spend our entire lives trying to earn acceptance. We want to earn it from our […]
