Three Parts of Forgiveness

The Three Parts of Forgiveness When was the last time you forgave somebody for something that they did or said? How'd you do with it? Is it a done deal? Are there still some feelings and hurts lefts behind? How do you do when you see them? It's a difficult topic yet, it is important to our walk with God that we are those who forgive. Ephesians 4:32 says, "Forgiving one an...

You Go First This Time!

You Go First This Time! When God's people were at the Red Sea fearful of the pursuing Egyptians and seeing no clear route out, God performed the most amazing miracle ever he opened up the Red Sea and Israel passed through it on dry ground. Wow! God really came through but it didn't take much faith to walk where God already made a way. Years later, God's people were about...

A Sure Foundation

There can be no doubt that there is a demonic warfare being waged against families, especially Christian families. The devil has been very successful in separating husbands and wives, fostering rebellion and worldliness in many children, disintegrating family unity and time together, causing the home to no longer be a safe and protective sanctuary from the world but influe...

Faith Over Feelings

It's not a sin when we feel the initial impact of fear. Many things happen that can cause us to be afraid and be fearful a bad report, imminent loss, a problem with a loved one and so on. We all go through those things. But the problem comes in when we give place to the fear and let it take over affecting what we do. We react out of fear rather than stand in faith in the f...

Church was God's idea, not mans'. Man, I believe has complicated the idea of church which has spun into hundreds of different denominations each based a round a core Scripture and cause that has done more to separate than to unify.

“For You are my Hope”(Psalm 71:5)

The antidote to discouragement is hope and our hope is not just "in" Jesus, but our hope "is" Jesus a hope that comes from an abiding, intimate and surrendered relationship with our Lord. The word hope means to have a desire of good with the expectation of obtaining it. Hope without expectation is hollow and without substance. But hope based on the foundation of the truth ...

If I promised you a check for a million dollars, how would you take that? Hopefully you wouldn't take me serious, have a good laugh and pray for me. But if I promised that the next time I see you that I would greet you warmly, hopefully you would believe that and anticipate our meeting. The difference between those two promises is that in the first promise, I have no resou...

When “Not” to Fight

There are many times in God's Word where we are to fight to fight the good fight of faith, to fight in spiritual warfare, enduring a great fight of afflictions. And that fight takes courage. But sometimes, it takes just as much courage not to fight! In the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5, Jesus spoke that if someone slapped you on the right cheek turn the other to them as...
