Your life’s assignment

Your life’s assignment

To miss out on your assignment in life is to miss out on why God put you on earth. You’re gifted and called by God, and you need to take it seriously. The question is not about what you are running from, but what you are moving towards. To succeed you must know God’s will ...

Stop beating yourself up

Stop beating yourself up

When you sin, God’s Spirit will convict you of your need to repent and change your ways. But until you get your glorified body in heaven, you’re always going to deal with sin. The apostle James wrote, ‘We all stumble in many ways.’ But falling down isn’t what makes you a ...

Practice humility

Practice humility

When Jesus asked His disciples, ‘“What were you arguing about along the way?” They had been arguing about which one of them was the greatest, and so they did not answer…he said, “If you want the place of honor, you must…serve others!”’ (vv. 33-35 CEV). If, after living with ...

The Bible says: ‘When he [Jesus] had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will”…When they had done so, ...

‘Lord, where are You?’ (2)

‘Lord, where are You?’ (2)

Have you ever tried to sit and watch a seed sprout? You can’t, can you? It stays in the ground until the time is right for it to emerge. There’s a lesson here: God has planted certain things within you, and you must wait for them to take root and grow. Unfortunately, the ...

‘Lord, where are You?’ (1)

‘Lord, where are You?’ (1)

Do you feel like God isn’t answering your prayers? Job the patriarch felt the same way: ‘I cry out to you, O God, but you do not answer; I stand up, but you merely look at me…When I hoped for good, evil came; when I looked for light, then came darkness’ (vv. 20,26 NIV 1984 ...

Relationship and fellowship

Relationship and fellowship

God is responsible for your relationship with Him. The moment you put your trust in Jesus Christ His Son, you are a fully accepted family member. But you are responsible for your fellowship with God. The Bible says, ‘If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in ...

The three Ts

The three Ts

Somebody said, ‘When the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.’ Let’s face it, because of our strong personalities some of us are inclined to use a hammer when a gentler approach would do the job better. If that’s your problem, remember the

Pray for God’s favor

Pray for God’s favor

One moment of God’s favor will do more for you than a lifetime of striving. Through the favor of God, Ruth went from being a penniless widow to becoming the wife of Boaz, a wealthy man. It’s what made Esther a queen and positioned her to save the Jewish nation. As you begin ...

God still has a plan for you

God still has a plan for you

The people of Israel ended up living as slaves in Babylon because they disobeyed God and decided to do their own thing. And they paid a high price for it. They lost their homes, their jobs, their freedom, and their self-respect. Has that happened to you? Well, there’s good ...
