Are You Serious? Do You Want to Change

If you are wanting to change your life, it’s time to take a serious look at the things that are hindering you. Recently, we had ants in our kitchen. We were covered in ants even after we had our house exterminated three times. What we failed to do was find the main source they were coming from. Once we discovered it, our ant problem was solved. It’s the same with sin. Once we discover the hidden iniquity, the main source, then our sin problem can be solved. If you are serious about getting rid of the annoying things in your […]

Wait For The Lord

Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. Psalm 27:14 My hope is in you Lord! Many times, the things that you are hoping for may require a time of waiting. Patiently waiting is a spiritual discipline.  This means it must be practiced in order for it to be established as a part of your nature. By nature we are impatient and want things to happen quickly.  When you run ahead of the Lord instead of waiting patiently for Him, you will find yourself tired and weary.  When you […]

The Path Of Life

You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy.  At your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

All along the way if you listen closely, you will hear Him say, “This is the way, walk in it.” Staying on the path of life […]

Resist the Snare

”That they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” 2 Timothy 2:26 If you are aware of the plan of the enemy, you can choose to stay on the path God has set for you.  God has a great plan for your life and the way to get there.  It is a higher way than you have traveled in the past. The Highway, like a major interstate, is a faster and smoother way.  The old way is like a back road, a gravel road with holes and traps […]

Stay on the Path of Life

“You will show me the path of life.” Psalms 16:11 God offers us an abundant life.  We just need to be willing to embrace it. I have learned over the past 50 years that staying on track takes self-control and discipline.   Self-control is actually planted in you by the Spirit and is growing inside of you as a fruit of the Spirit. Self- control and self -discipline develop as you are obedient to the Still Small Voice of the Lord on a daily basis.  Set the boundaries that He says to set. The little things count! Obedience to the little […]
