[04/03/18] Divine Design. Teenagers quickly learn that it is easier to ask forgiveness than to ask permission. We often take the same approach with God. We make plans for what we want, and we leave God out of the planning process. Then we involve God by asking Him to bless what we have already decided to do. Don't treat God like a magic wand that you wave over your plans. Involve Him at the very beginning. Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will direct your paths.
Life and Death
Every human being will die, and that death is the doorway into eternity of either septeration from God or joyful living in His presence, which path will be yours, your family, coworkers, and friends? We have an important message to get out. We all are born in sin. God sent Jesus to die for repentant sinners. Christians are therefore alive by faith, and we will never die spiritually. In spiritual death, the soul is forever separated from God whom a person refused to acknowledge during life. Get this message out, and sinners are dying at an alarming rate.
Getting our Attention
The book of Lamentations reveals that God will not tolerate forever His people's infiedelity. God will allow His wayward people to suffer because He knows that hardship may serve to draw them back to Him. One way God allows hardship and ges our attention is by removing His protection from us. So if everything seems to be going against us and we're experiencing continual defeat, we must consider whether we are dealing with the consequences of our sin. It is futile to ask for God's protection when we shoud be pleading for His forgiveness.
[11/03/17] Rely on God's Perspective. Since God is sovereign and in control of all things,it's difficult to understand why he allows some things to happen to us. Let's remind ourselves that God's personality traits include love and omniscience. He cannot do anything that is not in the best interests of His children. We may not understand it, but we can trust that He knows what He is doing. Romans 8:28 We know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.
[10/20/17] Spiritual Growth. Spiritual growth doesn't happen all at once. It is a lifelong process. First of all, we continue to live in sinful world, so we'll never be perfect in our lifetime. Second, we continually find ourselves in new situations. Third, we gain greater understanding of God as we learn to depend on Him. Finally, spiritual growth doesn't happen all at once because there is so much to learn about God. Read 2 Peter 1:8

[10/06/17] Choices and Consequences. Unbelievers are not the only people who will one day give an account for their lives before the judgement seat of Christ. Believers will too. Becoming a child of God does not free us from accountability, instead that new relationship with Him intesifies our accountability. God, our father is also our Creator and Judge. God will never force His will on you, but He will always make you give account for how you respond to Him and to His activity in your life. In this life, we have the freedom to choose our course of action, but we are not free to choose the consequences of our actions. We either receive God's offer of salvation or we don't, and the eternal consequences of our choice are already set. The choice is yours, the consequences, determined by God. Read 2 Corinthians 5:10.

Peace, be Still!
What do you do when the storms of life seem to be raging against you? One time Jesus was with His disciples in a boat out on the water when they encountered a great storm. The disciples were very afraid but Jesus, on the other hand, was fast asleep. When the disciples woke Him up to see if He could help them, Jesus got up and simply spoke to the storm, "Peace, be still!" And the seas were calm again.
When difficult times come, you don't have to be overwhelmed by the waves of worry or fear. Just as Jesus stood up and spoke to the storm, you have power in your words, too. As a believer, the Bible tells us that the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you. That means God's miracle-working power is on the inside of you. He's given you His authority to declare peace over your home, over your mind, and over your family. Remember, no matter what storms may come against you, the Greater One lives on the inside of you, and He'll empower you to live in victory in every area of your life!
A Prayer for Today
"Father in Heaven, thank You for flilling me with Your Holy Spirit and for giving me Your authority here on Earth. Today I declare peace over every area of my life and thank You for working things out for my good in Jesus' name. Amen."
[09/11/17] Prayer Prevails. Worry usually reults when you have exhausted all of your options. Don't withhold your prayers until everything else fails. Your first step in tackling a problem should be to pray about it. But you'll never hit the proverbial brick wall if you remember to pray your way through it. When you talk to God, He'll give you peace in the midst of your problems, and you'll be better able to keep working through the challenge. Phillipians 4:6. Don't worry about anything, instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done.
James 1:6 "But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind."
As human beings, we unfortunately have a natural inclination to worry about things. We worry about our children, we worry about our finances, we worry about our families, our jobs and more. In the natural, because we live in such difficult times, we think "who wouldn't be worried?" Worry and anxiety are normal in the natural, but they aren't necessary when you are a child of God. The Bible says that we should not be anxious about anything, but in all things through prayer and supplication, with Thanksgiving, we should let our requests be made known to God and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard our hearts and our minds in Christ Jesus.
(Philipians 4:6-7) True faith in God means that we trust Him with everything and we yield to His will for our lives. We ask Him for what we need and then we trust Him to do what's best for us. We don't ask Him for what we need and then worry about what the outcome will be. We trust Him with the things we can't see because we know He can. Yielding to His will means you don't have to worry about anything. God has it and ultimately He is in control. There's nobody greater.
Made for a Purpose
Ephesians 2:10 We are Gods masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Knowing where you came from makes a huge difference in your life. When you know without a doubt that God made the universe and created you in His image, you know you were made for a purpose. Imagine the confidence that gives you! Now move from imagining to believing. Believe that you can live your life on purpose because your were made for a purpose.

[07/28/17] Don't let your possessions define you. First, material possessions are not a measurement of how much God loves you. Second, material possessions aren't related to whether you are a good or bad person. Finally your possessions can become a barrier between you and God if you let them. Don't let them interfere with God's plan for your spiritual growth. Try to stay focused on God more than on your goods. Mark 10:23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, how hard is it for rich people to get into the kingdom of God!
[07/19/17] Disappointment can be a doorway to your greatest opportunity. "Moses my servant is dead. Now arise and go over this Jordan." Joshua 1:1 "Disappointments" Difficulties and disappointments will come. When they do it is difficult to stop staring at the past, to resist the present reality, and not to feel stuck where you are. It is difficult but it is not impossible. Optimism is the best cure. There really is no other good option to moving past the past. In the purposes of God, your focus is forward and optimism is your attitude. You have to deal with present reality to embrace future possibilities. Your biggest dissapointment can be a doorway to your greatest opportunity. It was for Joshua and Israel.

[07/10/17] Trust His Plans. Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." God is amazing, and His love for us is beyond what words can say. He gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we might believe, have faith and accept His "free" gift of eternal life. There is no greater love. Knowing this, we should also know that whatever we go through in this life, no matter how good or bad it may seem, it's meant to prosper us and not to harm us. I know how difficult this is to comprehend when you are hurting due to the loss of a child or loved one, but we have to look beyond our circumstances in the natural and look to Jesus in everything. This is the true test of faith. Do we really believe He exists? Do we really believe that He was born to a virgin mother, lived a perfect/sinless life, suffered and died on the cross and rose again to live forever in the place the Bible speaks of where there are no worries, no sorrow, no pain? Do we REALLY believe this? If we do, no matter what we go through, our hope should be in the Lord and we should trust His Word. He gave His life for us. He said that His plans are meant to prosper and not harm us. He wants to give us hope and a future with our loved ones who are already experiencing what we long for. The question remains....do we truly believe?
[06/29/17] Remember, when things look dark in your own life, dare to make a declaration of faith and say, "It is finished." What you're really saying is, "God, I know You are going to finish what you've begun in my life. You are going to turn things around. I know that You are giving me the breaks that I need. Let your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven! Keep looking with your eyes of faith knowing that He is faithful, and He will finish what He's started in you! A prayer for today: "Father in Heaven, thank you for your faithfulness in my life. I thatnk you that you will complete what you've started in my life. Today I choose to put my trust and hope in you knowing that you are working behind the scenes to bring victory to every area of my life. In Jesus' name, Amen!
