    Check Your Target

    Check Your Target

    At the start of every year it seems people are filled with new hope, big dreams, and expectations for greatness even though it's just another day. Progress doesn't happen just because another day has dawned, so if we hope to grow we are going to have to start the year right. Although much of your growth may seem like it is at a snail's pace, there are ways to catapult your life but it takes one thing: trusting in God and giving Him full control.

    He Will Do It

    He Will Do It

    It's easy to talk about the ability of God. Scripture is full of impossible miracles and sovereign moves of God, and most believers can recall many of these stories with ease.  Then, why do we doubt so easily?  Why do we struggle to believe God will work in our lives as He did with those in the Bible?  Do we think He loves us less, is less concerned, or is less motivated to work in our situations?  Rather than doubt Him, we need to be reminded how God gives to those who ask with right motives.

    Get a Hold of It

    There are people in your life who may have launched your love for Christ, but they are not able to sustain it; that is up to you! If we are going to continue in His love we have to understand it, know it, but also experience it. There are so many forces trying to pull us from His love, so what is the formula to remain in that love?

    The Heart of the Matter

    The Heart of the Matter

    Many times our biggest battles outside of us are caused by what is inside of us. We may think our heart is in the right place, or someone has a good heart, but the Bible disagrees. It says the heart is deceitful above all things. Simply stated: what the heart does best is what is worst. Paul says the only way to remedy what is at the center of who we are is the indwelling of Christ.  If we could understand how to get Christ within us, He could cure our heart issues.

    For This Reason

    For This Reason

    Many times, we fail to remember our most powerful weapon which God has equipped us with is prayer. Jesus said that we do not have because we do not ask.  How true! You can think of what you need, hope to have what you need, and even have dreams about it, but none of that will help you possess it. Beyond that, there is more to prayer than just what I think I have a need for. In fact, God has given us something great to pray for, and when you do, we take our place in His eternal plan.

    At Least I Tried

    At Least I Tried

    We've all tasted the bitter pill of defeat and failure.  We tried and failed, and all we can do is focus on the part where we failed.  When we expect perfection of ourselves, when we are not perfect, we will focus heavily on failure to remind ourselves how incapable we are.  What we forget is how capable our God is with the little we have to offer Him. We all know Peter failed to keep walking on water when he was distracted, but when he got back in the boat, he could look at the other eleven disciples and say, "At least I Tried."
