THE OUTCOME IS UP TO YOU

THE OUTCOME IS UP TO YOU

You determine the outcomes in your life, because God has given no one but you power over your options. When things aren’t working out for us, we often look elsewhere for the reason. Like Eve, we say, ‘The devil made me do it.’ No, Jesus said, ‘…I give unto you power…over all

FAILURE AND SUCCESS

FAILURE AND SUCCESS

To turn your failures into successes you need to do two things: 1) Realize that God wants you to succeed because you’re His child. When you think about it, what good and loving parent wouldn’t? In the face of overwhelming obstacles and enemy threats, Nehemiah announced, ...

THERE’S HOPE FOR YOU!

THERE’S HOPE FOR YOU!

In Jeremiah 29:11 we have a great promise in a not-so-great chapter. So if things aren’t going too well in your life at the moment, this verse is for you! Thousands and thousands of God’s people had been dragged off to live as slaves in Babylon. Why? Because they
