Our God is three persons in one. After I learned to love the Father and the Son, I asked the Holy Spirit to also reveal Himself to me. And He did.
Wrestling with God
Life gets hard, and in these times where the world and subsequently God doesn't seem to make sense, we need to wrestle like Jacob did. When we do so, We'll find God's blessing.
Perfection is a Burden You Don’t Have to Bear
As we grow in our faith, we want to hide our sins more. Falling is for toddlers, not for adults, but Jesus simply wants the honest and genuine you.
Trust the Science- Not the Scientists
In pride, most scientists chuff at the mention of God, yet there are a growing number of them who say that science actually gives proof of Intelligent Design. There is undeniable proof of Jesus and who he was. Because of this proof, we must hold Scripture as truth and form our worldview around it.
There are three adversaries which hinder us as we attempt to make friends, but with Jesus already as our friend, we can overcome these to create strong partnerships to support us through the ups and downs of life.
The (Im)Perfect Home
No matter how much we like or dislike our home, we can take hope in knowing that, as believers in Christ, we will one day be welcomed to our perfect home.
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.
Jesus Is King
Hearing Jesus is Lord, especially in church settings, is quite common. Recently, I was hit with the wait of this. Jesus is King. That means He has authority, and it's changed for the better.
Humility in Prayer
Upon digging further, I also found 1 John 5:14-15, “And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.” So it’s not just whatever we ask; it’s whatever we ask according to His will. Our confidence in prayer then can be held in promises He has already given us in Scripture, or occasionally devine personal revelation. But that left me lost about prayers for healing or personal requests. What is the point praying for our health or desires, when we have no power to change God’s will?
