How to Succeed in Business (1)

Posted on

“Know the state of your flocks.”                                           Pr 27:23 NKJV Sheep and cattle have to be handled differently. Sheep require tending. They need clear boundaries for their own protection, not to mention the shepherd’s potential loss if they are devoured by a wolf or fall off a cliff. Cattle do just fine when they’re given good grazing land and left alone. … Read More

God Looks at Your Heart

Posted on

“Motives are weighed by the Lord.”                                           Pr 16:2 NIV Henry Blackaby tells the story of a very self-righteous man who prayed: “Lord, there’s something wrong. I read the Bible, pray regularly, attend church faithfully and always give to charity, yet I don’t have much. My brother doesn’t do any of these things, yet he’s got tons of money. How come … Read More

Posted on

“Receive the kingdom of God as a little child.”                                Mk 10:15 Jesus said, “Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.” You need to become a little child again, to allow yourself the kind of relationship with the Lord that you may have missed; to allow Him to heal and adjust … Read More

Imagine Being Adopted by God! (1)

Posted on

“You received the Spirit of adoption.”                                     Ro 8:15 NKJV The Bible says, “[We] received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father.’ The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ” (vv.15-17 NKJV).

That’s What You’re Called to Do

Posted on

“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily.”        Lk 9:23 NIV The story’s told of a lieutenant addressing his platoon: “I’m looking for volunteers. Chances are, this mission won’t succeed and many of you won’t come back. If you’re interested, step forward.” Everybody looks around, then takes a collective step backwards, leaving an … Read More

Operating by the Peace Rule

Posted on

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.”                             Col 3:15 NIV If you don’t have peace about it, don’t proceed!

So how can you operate by the peace rule? “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God … Read More

“God is…a very present help in trouble.”                                 Ps 46:1 NKJV Let’s observe two final things: (1) Between the dread and the devastation, look for the Deliverer. Picture a boat lashed by huge waves, and frightened disciples who thought they were going under. They forgot the promise: “God is…a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear” (vv.1-2 NKJV). … Read More

Walking on Water (2)

“The boat was…buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.” Mt 14:24 NIV Notice: (1) Trouble doesn’t mean God has abandoned you. The disciples learned that Jesus may be out of sight, but He’s never out of touch. To “walk by faith, not by sight” (2Co 5:7 NKJV) means you’ll sometimes walk in darkness without visible cues. Someone … Read More

“Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go.”                  Mt 14:22 NIV When you find yourself in trouble, do you sometimes think, “I must have done something wrong. Perhaps I’ve missed God’s will and He’s punishing me”? No. Trouble is multi-sourced, and frequently unrelated to our wrongdoing or God’s punishment. The disciples weren’t in the storm by disobeying, but … Read More
