The Search for Who I Am?

There is one question that I believe at some level each one of us is attempting to answer with all of the things that we do in our life. This question shows up in our workplace, in our parenting, in our friendships, and in our marriages! The question is, “who am I?!”

The lack of identity is an epidemic of our culture today! I believe that a high percentage of people are aimlessly walking into situations, relationships, events and careers without having any understanding or idea of who they are. All of this creates devastation in peoples lives on a daily basis.

This is all a part of the enemy’s plan! The enemy is known as the father of lies in the Bible, so he loves nothing more than to lie to us. And also to get us to lie to ourselves! If he can get us to lie to ourselves and believe the lies that he tells us ultimately he knows that we will get off track with our life that God has intended for us.

“You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry...

Love Radically

FOCUS: Words to Prepare Your Mind

“God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

“When we know that we are loved by God, loved beyond measure, we can dive in and take a chance.” – Sheila Walsh, Imagine Devotional Journal

PUSH: Words to Influence Your Spirit
Would you consider your love for Jesus to be ‘radical love’?

Whether you feel that your love for Jesus is radical or not, know this: Jesus is radically in love with you.

Let me tell you what radical love means. It is having an all-consuming, passionate love for God—the kind of love God has for you. Do you want this radical kind of love in your life? If you do, let me tell you how to get it.

First and foremost, if you don’t have it, you have to confess that fact. Secondly,cry out to God for it in your life. And lastly, don’t give up until you get it!

HABAKKUK: A Promise We Can Claim

habakkukIf we could hear God’s voice audibly, if He were to say something personally to us, it would be wonderful to hear Him say what Habakkuk heard: “Look among the nations and watch – be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you” (Habakkuk 1:5).

All our lives we’ve been in trouble – nations rising against nations; wars and rumors of wars; people speaking of peace where there is no peace. That also describes the days of Habakkuk. God made a promise to him that we can claim as our own . . . just like we’d heard it audibly. It’s that real.

OBADIAH: Short And Powerful

obadiah

OBADIAH: Short And Powerful

The somewhat obscure book, written by its somewhat obscure author, is the shortest book in the Old Testament.  In only one chapter Obadiah admonishes us to not hold a grudge.  Picking up on another passage of Scripture, “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them…” (Matt. 7:12).  Obadiah warns us to be careful.  In verse 15, he writes, “As you have done, it shall be done to you.”

As tempting as it is at times to get even when we’ve been hurt or mistreated, it never pays.  Obadiah only had one chapter to do it in, but he makes that very clear.

Holy Spirit in Real Time

Holy Spirit in Real Time

I remember the conversation like it was yesterday. I received a phone call
from a woman from my church who was in extreme crisis. As she shared her
story with me, I could hear the depth of her pain. She relayed in detail the
suicidal thoughts she was having as a result of the years of sexual abuse she
had suffered as a child, and her despair was deep and real and frightening.
My heart broke as I listened to her, but I immediately felt overwhelmed and
unqualified.
 
This conversation occurred over 20 years ago, but I vividly remember the
initial panic that overcame me. How could I possibly help her? Why was she
calling me? Why wasn’t she going to our pastor or a trained counselor? What
could I say to keep her from harming herself?
I remember immediately saying a prayer in my head and asking the Holy
Spirit to guide my words. I had not experienced the things she was going
through, but I knew clearly that God wanted me to be there for her in this

Grace and the Holy Spirit

Grace and the Holy Spirit

“The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell
where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the
Spirit.” John 3:8
 
My dad loved the saying that we are a spirit born in the image of Christ sent
here to live out a human existence before we head back home to Him. We
are first and foremost a Spirit born in the image of Christ. Our purpose here
is to live out the plan that God has for us.
 
The question is, how do we know what the plan is for us?
 
The focus in October with the Women of Faith Ambassadors is Holy Spirit...
the power within us. I struggled much of my life understanding the role of the
Holy Spirit. Through prayer and study, I have realized I made it much harder
than it needed to be.
 
Jesus describes the Holy Spirit to us in John 16:12-15:  “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.  When the Spirit of truth...

The Crucible of Doubt

I find that those who walked with God in the Old Testament seem far more honest than some of us today. The psalmist D0avid, for example, was brutally honest with God. The prophets poured out their hearts to God; Job railed against God. Those who were able to bring their doubts and fears, however raw, into the presence of God, and who truly wrestled with their faith, found a faith that could withstand anything.

The apostle Peter was pretty sure that whatever Jesus needed, he was the man for the job. But as he faced the greatest failure of his life, he was about to be transformed . . . into a man of faith.

Doubts unexpressed isolate us and drive us from the heart of God. God’s heart is big enough to carry whatever burden you are bearing.

Do you doubt that God loves you?

Do you doubt that He cares?

Do you doubt that He will see you through any and every circumstance?

I encourage you to bring your doubts to Him. He can be trusted with your questions.
