Breaking Free From Rejection

Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives…” Luke 4:18 “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” John 8:32 If you have been hurt or wounded, you may still struggle with thoughts and feelings of rejection.

Need Strength? Wait on the Lord

Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles.  Isaiah 40:31 Are you waiting on something and wondering why it is taking so long?  Waiting is required of us for spiritual maturity.  A child who has not yet matured, can’t sit still, they are impatient and can’t wait.  A child that can’t wait patiently demands their way, they want what they want, and they want it right now!  But God requires us to wait so we will mature in our faith.  He knows that during the waiting period we will grow stronger in our […]

He didn’t get fearful-  He remained steadfast […]
