DO NOT BE ANXIOUS!!!!

DO NOT BE ANXIOUS!!!!

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT).
 
Statistics show that about 85% of the things that spend time worrying about actually never take place! So much of our energy is spent worrying about things that by the end of the day or the end of the week will never happen.
 
Anxiety is nothing more than fear-based and is definitely not from God. In fact, scripture tells us that there is a spirit that impacts us and causes us to worry. That spirit is the “spirit of fear”.
 
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. - 2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT).  
 
The enemy can really use anxiety in many ways for the...

GETTING: WHAT WE DON'T DESERVE

One of my dear friends, Elizabeth, came from an exceptionally broken and destructive family—a family whose experience included prison, abuse, and suicide. At sixteen years old, Elizabeth cried in anger to her mentor, “This is not fair! I don’t deserve this family, this life!”

Most of us would agree with this outcry from a sweet teenage girl subjected to such a life.  Elizabeth’s mentor knew Jesus, and . . . replied, “You’re right. You don’t deserve this life. You deserve hell and death, and so do I.  God’s gracious love for us provided a Savior who took our sins and died for them. He didn’t deserve death, and we don’t deserve life. It is God’s grace that we have life at all.”

And with that simple word God moved Elizabeth’s perspective from disappointment to hope. Her view of her life shifted from anger to gratitude. Elizabeth found freedom from the bitterness that was...

1 JOHN: So We Can Know

1 JOHN: So We Can Know

First John contains a tiny verse that assures us of our salvation in Jesus Christ.  Don’t miss it in 1 John 5:13: “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.”

That settles is for all of us. The verse doesn’t say in order that we may “feel” or “think” or “hope;” it says clearly that we can know we have eternal life. What a great gift of God that He would want us to know, without a doubt, we will go to heaven when we die!

We are His, and when we die, we’ll be with Him forever. We know this, in part, because of John’s writing in this book.

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: 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.
