There’s a problem most of us have. It’s this, we live in the agony of past mistakes, sins, and defeats. It is true when we ruminate in the past, it spreads a table of gloom and doom. But there is a way to break free.
Here are two initiatives my wife and I take to smooth out the wrinkles lying in our past.
My wife and I often recount our blessings before we begin our devotions. Doing this first before reading the Bible puts us in a posture to receive what scripture has for us.
I enjoy the coffee-shop time…
What separates Christianity from other religions is in the first book of the Bible. Even now in the year, we are living, God still does this act.
What is it that God does, which we find in no other religion?
We find this amazing act God does in Genesis chapter three. When Adam and Eve sinned, God came to them where they were hiding. And He talked with them, asking questions.
And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence…
I’m distressed to see our laws being disregarded by the people we choose to keep our nation safe. It is as our leaders no longer see themselves as our servants. Rather, they picture themselves as overlords. Their actions are not good.
Our borders must be protected. When we notice people living in squalid conditions, action should be taken to correct the situation.
My discourse is part whimsical, part serious. Though brief, my intent is to highlight two questions deserving our attention.
I’m writing to focus our attention on who God is, first rather than on what He gives us.
Have you ever sensed that someone loves you for the things they can get from you? Disgusting isn’t it? Besides, their love to get something from you is demoralizing to you. You thought the person loved you for who you are; now you find out it was a game to get something from you.
Do we play the same game with God? We like the scriptures saying, He, God, grants the desires of our heart. (Psalms 37:4), Or God will lead us…
Are you ready to get your life moving in the right direction? I’m offering a three-question format to get you the insight needed. Then you’ll move to a prosperous, fuller life.
The three questions God ask humankind have always intrigued me. I call these three questions, my God Quiz. I have found the more straight-forward the question, the more profound the answer. Another way to say it is; The more succinct the question, the more prolific the answer.
God asks short questions. We continue to wrestle for the correct answers even to this day.
You’re not into what God said…
What and who do you put your trust in, why? Trust is to have complete confidence in what the person is promising.
Some of us trust in our wealth. Others of us trust strength. In who do you place your trust?
The scriptures point to the optimal person, God. Why? Because He possesses everything we need no matter what circumstance we face.
Three words describe the God of the Bible.
I’d say God is the best place to put our trust. …
Wisdom is available.
It would be best if you asked for it, though.
I have the information needed to get the wisdom you need — the person and place to ask.
You’ll find it here in scripture.
For the Lord grants wisdom!
From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest.
He is a shield to those who walk with integrity. (Proverbs 2:6–7, NLT)
God grants wisdom and common sense to those who ask.
Do not be hesitant to request God’s wisdom. God will not hold animosity towards any asking for His…
