I dislike resting, but it is both a command and a necessity.
When “Yes” Sounds Like “I Guess”
God asks us to complete tasks we don’t wish to complete nor will necessarily feel capable of completing. When that happens, we mustn’t run like Jonah did, but learn to say yes to the Lord even in our weakness.
When Hope (Seems To) Fail
One of the main messages of Christmas is hope. But there are years in our life when those prayers for hope go unanswered. Even though it seems like God has failed you, you’re not alone. And even when it’s hard to see, there is always hope.
When My Children Became My Gods
The first commandment of the ten commandments is to have no other gods before God. Although most of us don’t bow down and worship statues, it can be surprisingly easy to let ourselves and other people become gods instead. When we do, our lives fall apart, but there’s hope.
There is a spiritual war raging around us. But God sends angels to aid us in this struggle. I was possibly visited by one of these angels once, and eagerly await when I will see King Jesus come again with His angels.
Emotional Freedom Part 5
Christ doesn't want us to be controlled by our emotions, but He does give us freedom to feel them when it's appropriate. It's our responsibility to know how and when to express them appropriately.
Emotional Freedom Part 4
Sometimes even when we're walking with the Lord and have cast out demons, we can still struggle with strong negative emotions. But by using certain tools, we can still find freedom.
Emotional Freedom Part 3
Once we decide to follow Christ, and live according to the pattern he set for us, Satan and his forces will do all they can to stop us. They will twist our emotions so that we're ineffective in the assignments God has for us. But just as Jesus overcame Satan by rising from the dead, so can we.
Emotional Freedom Part 2
Victory from our negative emotions cannot be found apart from a right relationship with Christ. Once we decide to be a disciple of Jesus, He will love us by disciplining us. Sometimes with negative emotions. Through prayer and repentance, we have hope and victory.
Emotional Freedom (Part 1)
We live in a culture defined by uninhibited expression of our feelings and emotions. But by doing so, we let them control us. Christ wants us to learn freedom from our emotions so that we may live for Him.
