The devil’s final strategy in deceiving believers is to make them doubt the faithfulness of God in answering prayer. Satan would have us believe God has shut His ears to our cry and left us to work things out for ourselves. In all honesty, many saints of God struggle with these thoughts – “If God’s ear is open to my prayer, and I pray diligently, why is there such little evidence of His answering?” Is there one certain prayer you have been praying for such a long...

When life gets messy, it’s natural for us to get stressed. Or angry. Or bitter. Especially when life takes a turn we didn’t expect – a broken engagement, the loss of a spouse, the diagnosis of cancer, the death of a dream. The unexpected mess has happened in my life many times: My daughter’s injury in high school cheer that resulted in not one, but three ACL repair surgeries in the span of 15 months. My husband’s resignation of his ministry job to take a much-needed...

The goodness of God The goodness of God is immeasurable. The wisdom and grandeur of God cannot be completely understood. But yet, He communes with us, He speaks to us and call us His own. One phrase that I always say to my closest friends and family is that “God never lets his children fall into a hole.” I stand convicted to that statement, understanding that if we fall, it is not because God did not warn us, but rather, we didn’t listen. We didn’t listen to the wise counsel He sent or...

Are you a Christian? If so, you have immeasurable power through the Holy Spirit The Christian Life is lived in the Spirit. He is the GAS to our engines. If you were driving in a car, you could get through life without running an engine (well… you’d have to get outside and push 2000 lbs of dead weight), but wouldn’t it be a lot more intelligent to use the power of the internal combustion engine? That’s a dramatic but fitting picture of what the Holy Spirit does for you after salvation....

According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, control is “to have power over” something. As humans, we love to have control over the things that we do. We love to have a plan. We have grown up hearing advice like this: “You can do anything you set your mind to do!” “Follow your heart!” Nevertheless, when things don’t go the way we’ve planned, we can feel disappointed, unfulfilled, anxious, sad — even angry. We might have pictured our lives differently than they’ve turned out...

I’ve got a good friend who’s probably a lot like you. He loves the Bible and does his best to read it and live it every day. There’s one problem. Some of his friends say the Bible isn’t true, and he’s not always sure how to respond. So I’ve created a list of the best arguments I can find for the credibility of the Bible. Interested? Okay, here are my Top 10 Reasons the Bible is True. (If I missed any that are important to you, please add them in the comment section below. I’d...

1. Christ is Lord over all because he is God. The Father is God; the Son is God; and the Holy Spirit is God. God rules over all things by his providential control (Ps. 103:19). Therefore it is also true that each person in the Godhead rules over all. Christ rules over all. This rule is comprehensive not only in its extent (over all of space, all of time, and all areas of human activity), but in its details—over each sparrow, each hair of the head, and each atom. 2. Christ is Lord over all because...

I love this verse from Luke 5:16 because it shows that just like you and me, Jesus needed a break from the demands of his busy life to recharge his batteries and spend time with his Heavenly Father. The life of Christ is intended to give us examples we can follow and learn from. So, even though He was God incarnate, Jesus didn’t draw on his super powers as the Son of God when it came to facing life’s challenges. Instead, when he was exhausted or burdened or in need of spiritual refreshment,...

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I want to give God my obedience. I want to give him my all, but I’m not sure where to start.”? I think it’s safe to say that we all have been there at some point. You also might be feeling as if you’re giving God your full obedience and suddenly it hits you that…you haven’t been. The topic of obedience is one that seems easy, but can be really difficult in practice. Deuteronomy 8:1 says, “The whole commandment that I command you today, you shall...
