If I had Wings…
“Oh, that I had wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.” Psalm 55:6 The stresses of life can be so overwhelming. I often fall into the discouragement of situations, rather than focus on the One who truly cares for me and is ready to sustain me. Bearing the burden of crushing weight actually gives Christians wings. This may sound like a contradiction in terms, but it is a blessed truth. While enduring a severe trial, David cried, “Oh, that I had wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.” Yet before […]
Awakened in my Faith!
“Aroused by faith, Moses, when he had grown to maturity and became great…” Hebrews 11:24 It is interesting that Moses had to be aroused by faith. The word “arouse” means to be awakened; to be stirred up and awakened from slumbering. We can get so consumed and overwhelmed with the struggles of life that we become discouraged to the point that our spirit slumbers, or shuts down and sleeps. When you give in and are overcome by discouragement, you have a slumbering spirit. An awakened spirit keeps you focused on what God is doing; even in the midst of trouble, […]
Are you Stressed, Tired, and Burnt-out?
“Oh God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land…” Psalm 63:1 Life can be very difficult at times. The stresses that we face each day can often be overwhelming and leave us exhausted and frustrated. There is a deep well within us that must be filled up daily. When this well has not been filled, you will find yourself dry and thirsty. Jesus said, “If any man thirst let him come to me and drink.” (John 7:37) Jesus is the fountain where we go to drink; He […]
God’s Will for Your Life
“Our Father which art in Heaven, hollowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven…” Matthew 6: 9-13 Have you ever wondered what God’s will for your life is? His will is simply for us to live and maintain His kingdom here on earth. God’s kingdom is distinct and a different way of life. Jesus taught us how to pray for the kingdom to come on earth, how He would work in us, and showed us how to live and work inside the kingdom. When Christ is in you, it is […]
Walk in the Way God has Commanded
“You shall walk in all the ways which the Lord your God has commanded you, that you may live, and that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land which you shall possess.” Deut. 5:33 You Shall Walk The Lord has a path on which we are to walk. We are to walk in His ways regardless of our circumstances. God promised us in Deut. 5:33 that if we walk in His ways, we will live a long life and things to work together for our good. Even when our circumstances do not […]
