In a world experiencing wars, rumors of war and dangers of every kind, it’s comforting to know that God has promised to protect His people. We may not all be on the front lines of a natural war, but we all face an enemy who intends to steal, kill and destroy. However, we must always remember our God is more powerful than the devil. And when we make God our refuge, we have security in Him. Just like a newborn baby wrapped in a warm, secure blanket, God wraps us in His love, power and protection. Psalm...

The Bible is filled with accounts of supernatural protection for God’s people. It’s no problem for God to bring you out of a fiery furnace or shut the mouth of a lion. He has proven time and again He’s well able to get the job done no matter what the circumstances. But God’s protection is not automatic. There are things you have to do in order for God to be your refuge. There are choices you have to make. If you choose to live in sin, you probably won’t live a long and healthy life....

Since the days of Abraham, God has been promising His people a land of their own. It’s a promise that has captured the minds of the Jewish nation for generations. And it’s a promise that applies to you today as surely as it has ever applied to anyone. Yes! God has promised to give you a land of your own. Not necessarily a piece of property, but a state of being that’s far more valuable than any plot of ground could ever be. It’s a place where all the promises of God are “yea” and “amen”...

Throughout my years of getting to know God, I have learned that He is absolutely good. He has nothing in Him that even resembles selfishness. Since the first day of Creation, He has always been giving of Himself. Every aspect of His nature flows from His love for His creation and it is all good. Every day of my life is filled with His goodness. When God sent His Son into the earth, Jesus was anointed to preach good news—and only good news—and to demonstrate the goodness of His Father. He made...

If you’ve been around faith teaching at all, you know what Jesus said in Mark 11:22-24—and you know it well. You’ve read it many times. You’ve heard sermons about it. You may even be able to quote by heart Jesus’ earthshaking, mountain-moving words: Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to...

Have you heard other Christians praying in Jesus’ name, but can’t figure out why? Well, I’m going to answer that question. Of course, the reality is so much bigger than that one question. The truth is that Jesus name has an unparalleled authority and power that you and I and every other believer can access. First, you must realize that Jesus inherited His name from Almighty God. That means it’s God’s own Name. It’s the Name that in the Old Testament is translated LORD (as in Proverbs...

Is fear contaminating your faith? Ask yourself these questions: Do you worry about the safety of your children each time they walk out the door? Do you find yourself pacing if your spouse is 15 minutes late for dinner? Do you get stressed every time newscasters are proclaiming doom and gloom for the economic markets? Do you fear each time a storm comes through your state? If so, then it’s time for you to take a stand against worry. Here are 10 scriptures to help you stand strong against worry...

One of the devil’s favorite pastimes is telling believers how big their problems are. He does it all the time. It seems he’s always trying to discourage us about one thing or another. But next time he tries it on you, here’s a thought that will encourage you: The devil is actually the one with the problem! What’s Wrong With the Devil Anyway? He has a problem that’s not only massive, unlike the temporary difficulties you may be facing, his is permanent and getting worse every day. Just...

Today, the idea of aging gracefully seems lost. In our society, emphasis is repeatedly placed on remaining young, but if you are entering your “golden years,” you know the value of growing older. You hold the unique position of being able to train the next generation of believers to love, endure, worship and encourage. You have the opportunity to reflect the heart of the psalmist who said, “Now that I am old and gray, do not abandon me, O God. Let me proclaim your power to this new generation,...

God expects us to lay hold of what belongs to us, but we have an enemy who lies to us and tries to stop us from receiving God’s biggest blessings. He sets up roadblocks in an effort to keep us from receiving from God. Jerry Savelle calls them “blessing blockers.” Many of these obstacles to God’s best in our lives fall under the category described in Mark 7:13: The tradition of men makes the Word of God of no effect. Traditions are demonic error-really lies-to keep the Church in the dark....
