Hearing from God (2)

If you’re unwilling to listen to God in one area, you’ll be unable to hear from Him in other areas. People think they can’t hear from God but in reality there are a lot of things they already know He wants them to respond to but they just haven’t done them. The more quickly ...

Hearing from God (1)

Jesus told His disciples, ‘The Spirit of truth (the Truth-giving Spirit)…will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth)’ (John 16:13 AMP). Jesus spoke these words to men with whom He’d spent the previous three years. Now you’d think that if Jesus was with us ...

No peace? It’s ‘out!’

No peace? It’s ‘out!’

When God speaks to us He gives us a deep sense of inner peace to confirm that He is speaking to us. Beware of false peace! When we have a strong desire to do something it can produce a strong emotion but it’s a lot more to do with our own excitement than God’s peace. As time

The choice is yours!

The choice is yours!

Spiritually speaking, you’re probably not as far along the road as you’d like to be; but thank God you’re still on the road! At one time you were a stranger to God’s unstoppable unconditional love, now you’re part of the family! Paul writes: ‘You received the word…not as the

So far so good! (1)

Are you pushing to become more like Jesus but some days it feels like two steps forward and three back? Growing up spiritually isn’t easy; that’s why Paul encourages us not to ‘let ourselves lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary’ ...
