Start your day off right by spending some time with God. In this daily, 5-minute devotional, you'll get encouragement from the Bible along with practical tips on how to live out your faith.
Discover The True Source Of Joy
"Joy," wrote G.K. Chesterton, "is the gigantic secret of the Christian." Yet to many it appears to be such a well‑kept secret that they never fully discover what it all is.
How Do I Find God?
"The problem with you Christians," commented an atheist, "is that you have monopolized all the holidays. You have Christmas, Easter, Good Friday, All Saints Day, and what have you. What we atheists need is a holiday all of our own." With a wry smile on his face, the friend countered, "How about April 1?" Centuries ago, the Psalmist wrote, "The fool says in his heart, 'There is no God'" (Psalm 14:1). But it could well be translated, "There is no God for me!" A lot of people who describe themselves as atheists have second thoughts when the going gets tough.
The Reason You Don‘t Have to Worry
Mark Twain, the American humorist, once wrote, "I am an old man and have known many troubles, but most of them never happened." What Twain was saying is that most of the things we worry about never occur. Paul Myers, founder of the old Haven of Rest Broadcast, used to say, "Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday."
Find A Better Way To Handle Anxiety
The National Institute of Mental Health did a study that required more than six years to complete. It was the most extensive piece of psychological research that has ever been conducted by this prestigious organization, or, for that matter, by any such organization anywhere. Their research confirmed what I have suspected for a long time: that the number one mental health disorder today is anxiety.
How Do I Know If God Really Exists?
"The real issue in the moral, ethical, and philosophical world today is the question of final reality," so wrote Francis Schaeffer, shortly before his death in 1984. He continued, "The Christian believes final reality is the infinite, personal God of moral absolutes who truly is there. The humanist believes it is impersonal material or energy which has existed in some form forever, and is shaped into its present form by pure chance. On this basis, man makes himself the measure of all things."
Stop Living Your Life In Fear
In the Upper Room Jesus charged the disciples: "Don't be troubled; don't be afraid!" He knew what was ahead; they didn't. But instead of struggling with panic, Jesus was calm, fully in control. When you are stronger than the circumstances which confront you, you, too, can have that peace. Jesus finished his challenge to the disciples, saying, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world" (John 16:33).
