You can change your life by detoxing the mind with Christ. Did you know that we can literally change the structure of our brain with what we feed it every day? Neuroscientist Dr. Caroline Leaf says that 75 percent to 95 percent of the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life. What we think about affects us physically and emotionally. It’s an epidemic of toxic emotions and is literally making us sick. Our experiences and environment shape our thinking and often...

The Bible tells us, “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace” (Colossians 3:15). As Christians, we are called to biblical peace. This peace doesn’t focus on the absence of trouble. It is unrelated to our circumstances; it is a goodness of life that is not touched by what happens on the outside. You may be in the midst of great trials and still have biblical peace. But finding daily peace isn’t easy. It is easily stolen. It only...

God loves us and He is always waiting for each one of us to ask Him about how we can deepen our personal relationship with Him. God wants us to know Him. Despite your circumstances, the Bible says God is at work in everyone’s life, “So that they should seek the Lord and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from any one of us” (Acts 17:27). If you sincerely ask God what you should do in order to enrich your relationship with Him, you will hear Him responding back...

Love is word we see often in the Bible. It’s an essential part of God’s nature. The Bible asks us “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? (Romans 8:35). The answer is given to us in verses 37-39 “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, not height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us...

Throughout life every Christian will face difficult trials and tribulations that will cause them to question their faith, who they are and whether or not they’re making the right choices. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing what the future will bring – each person must live their life to the fullest and with an open mind. Even though we don’t have a how-to manual on life, Christians have the Bible which provides comfort and substance for the day-to-day. Having a Christian heart is...

Jesus taught essential lessons in the actual homes of His followers. While many people think of Jesus’ ministry as teaching to the multitudes, feeding the 5,000, teaching in the temples, the synagogues, the mountainside and the seashore, many of His most personal teachings were done inside the walls of a family’s home. In fact, there are countless lessons throughout the New Testament that Jesus taught within these walls that can guide us in making Christ the focal point of our own homes,...

If I look back at the seasons of my life since becoming a Christian, there is an absolute correlation between my closeness with God, and the quality of my relationships, finances, ministry, career path… pretty much everything else in life. I’m pretty sure my hair grew faster. This shouldn’t come as a shock, of course. We all know life improves when we’re in God’s will, because he not only knows what’s best for us, he desires it. The problem is, even the strongest of Christians can...

All of us have had experiences when our prayers seemed to go unanswered. Sometimes days, weeks, or even years will go by at a time and we still find ourselves wondering, when is God going to answer this prayer? The important thing to remember is that God hasn’t forgotten about you or abandoned you. The Bible tells us “The LORD Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged” (Deuteronomy 31:8). God has also promised...

The power of prayer is beyond anyone’s belief. No one can truly understand the grace and strength that lies behind the words derived from the heart and cultivated into prayers. When you communicate to the Lord, the utmost truth and selflessness is produced because you’re shedding all of the preconceived notions and stereotypes that consume your day-to-day. Instead you’re allowing Jesus Christ to take the wheel and be your sole navigator. Powerful prayers can take you into another realm of...

Faith Releasing Prayers That Rock The Enemy There’s nothing that shakes the kingdom of darkness more than a believer that prays in fearless faith in God. When we believe in the truth of God’s ability to deliver us from our situations, it dismantles all of the enemy’s attacks. Discouragement, depression, and despondency all lose their grip in the midst of unshakable faith. The Bible says that God gives us a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind. Think about this! Faith frees us up to walk...
