Would you still praise Him?

If you don’t get promoted? If you don’t get healed? If you don’t get blessed financially? If you don’t see your loved one saved? If you don’t get promoted? If you don’t fall in love? If your baby is sick? If your church doesn’t experience revival? If your new car gets totaled? If you lose […]

You Are Not on Trial….

July 28, 2011

Your faith is. If you are born of the Spirit and are following Jesus, then consider it joy when you enter trials because God is refining you. He puts Himself into us and then brings us to the fire so He can burn away anything that is not of Him. He is the only thing […]

Going Up.

When we think about our walk with Jesus, we could think of it as an elevator ride in a massive skyscraper.   We begin on the first floor when we become born-again.   The lobby is beautiful and inviting.   There is free coffee and snacks, as well as other things to help ourselves to.  It is a […]

Like the Father

May 16, 2011

0 Comments

As Christians we should desire to be more like our Father God.  We go to church, read His Word and pray every day.  We also try to “like” the things He likes.  He likes love, mercy and forgiveness as well as joy, patience and kindness and many other things.  But what about the things He […]

Unanswered Prayers

March 14, 2011

Do you have unanswered prayers?   Why have they gone unanswered?   Is it because of God or you? If we want our prayers to be answered, we must first make sure they line up with God’s plan for our lives. (1 John 5:14) They will be in line with His Word and with His plan for […]

What is God After?

You or what He placed inside you? Is He concerned about the bank or the money He has in it? When God placed Himself in you, did He care who or what you were? Or is He concerned with who and what He is? He is trying to make us like Him (in His image) […]

Breaking Through

February 26, 2011

When God created man in the Garden of Eden, man did not have God inside him.  When Adam and Eve sinned they became subject to the laws of sin and thus, a   spiritual barrier blocked them from true intimacy with God. When Satan tricked them (if you can call it that) he became the ruler […]

God Inside

As a born-again Christian you know that there is a God and He is in heaven but where else is He? He is inside you in the form of the Holy Spirit. His throne is in your heart. The reason He gives you Himself is because He cannot deny himself (2 Tim 2:13). His whole […]

Too Proud To Sin

February 21, 2011

3 Comments

I know, it is a pretty contradictory ideal from a Christian perspective.   The bible says that pride IS sin.   What I am talking about are the people (used to be one) who attend church, go to bible study and tithe, etc.  Some of them do it not to please the Lord or live a righteous […]

Out of the Fire?…NO!!

February 17, 2011

Are we seeking to be out of the fire?  We shouldn’t be.  We are there for a reason. A lot of times, Christians seek to be delivered from struggles when they shouldn’t be. God has us there for a reason.  He is trying to purify us.  How can we be  “finished” if we desire to […]
