Where Is Your Faith

Never, never pin your

whole faith on

any human being:

not if he is the

best and wisest in the

whole world.

There are lots of

nice things you

can do with sand;

but do not

try building a

house on it.

__ C. S. Lewis

Heavenly Father,

Help us to trust you completely and not to put unnecessary burdens on our fellow brethren, because they will fall short and disappoint us like we have disappointed them.

Make us firm in our faith.

Amen

Fear Is a Bully

Do not allow fear to deter you from taking daily action towards becoming all that God intended you to be. Fear is a bully that stands ready to rob you of your inheritance. I challenge you to face that bully today and put it in the right place –behind you.

Moving Forward

Not that I have already reached the goal or

am already fully mature, but I make every effort

to take hold of it because I also have been taken hold of by

Christ Jesus. Brothers, I do not consider myself to have

taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is

behind and reaching forward to what is ahead,

I pursue as my goal the prize promised by

God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus

Philippians 3:12-14

Unending Joy and Peace

The secret to a life of unending joy and peace

involves finding something or someone who will

“come through” for you 100 percent of the time

in any and every situation forever.

The Confidence to be UNSTOPPABLE

I can do ALL things through Christ which strengthens me (Philippians 4:13).

Why are many of us so lackluster, insipid, or perhaps dead in the pursuit of life as God would have us live it?

I think the answer to this question for the most part is a lack of confidence in the promises that God has given to us, our inability to receive them, and the fear that we may not be get it right.

It is not enough to know the promises; we must accept them, study them, internalize them, and put them into practice.

We know that fear is not from God, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).

Therefore, confidence is having a divine perspective to do what God has equipped you to do knowing that He has your back every step of the way.

We see this confidence when…

Hezekiah trusted in, leaned on, and was confident in the Lord… (2 Kings 18:5).

Peter answered, Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water (Mathew 14:28).

Esther entered Xerxes inner court uninvited (Esther 4:14). Not only did God preserve Esther’s life, but He also eliminated the threat of extinction for the Jewish people.

God has our backs no matter what. It is up to us to do what He has equipped us to do. We can do it all because he is right by our side giving us all we need to take every single step.

How will you be UNSTOPPABLE today?

True contentent comes with the conscious decision to accept your lot, to do your best with it, and to leave the rest to God.
