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 […]
What is my purpose in life?
“I will cry to God Most High …who brings to pass His purposes for me and surely completes them.” Psalm 57:2 (AMP) Do you desire to know what your purpose is in life? Are you lacking fulfillment and joy in what you do each day? Does it feel like you are just spinning you wheels and never gaining ground? Finding those things which gives our life purpose and meaning is important. God has given each of us our own unique blend of talents and skills that will enable us to fulfill our purpose in life. We are beautifully created […]
Help for the Brokenhearted
“He heals the brokenhearted and bindeth up their wounds.” Psalms 147:3 God has made full provision for healing the pain of the past so you can trust again. Have you ever trusted someone to love you that did not know how to love or how to receive your love? In both cases you will experience rejection. This type of rejection is very painful, especially when it comes from someone whom you really trusted. The pain from being hurt by someone you trust is much greater than being hurt by a casual friend. It takes years to build trust, but it […]
Do You Know God’s Will For Your Life?
Have you ever questioned what God’s will for your life is? God’s Kingdom is distinct and a different way of life. Phil 2:13 says, “It is God in you that works to will and to act according to His excellent pleasure”. I have actually discovered that I can pray the Lord’s Prayer, “Thy will be done”, and afterwards resist the work of Christ in me. “Col 1: 27 says, To whom God would make understood exactly what is the riches of the glory of this secret among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory”. I had […]
