History proves that God is always faithful, and what He has done before, He will do again. So don't get distracted in the middle of the storm. Because what the world may say is falling apart, the Lord is saying it's falling in place.
We have one common enemy who wants to divide and distract us from our one mission. But we are a reflection of God's love, and together we can do far greater things for His Kingdom than we ever could apart.
We like to avoid issues because they get messy, but maybe what you're trying to walk around, God is wanting to take you through. We have a responsibility to find a solution to those hard issues. To do that, we need to take a seat, lean into God, listen, and then lead.
You are not alone in your struggles, and you don't have to live a restless life. Have confidence in knowing Jesus has paid it all, and in Him you can find rest. Rest in His promise, rest in His provision, and rest in His peace as you Shelter in Grace.
Jesus was rejected so we wouldn't have to be. He took the punishment we deserved to give us a life we didn't. Now the separation is over, sin is removed, and we can rest in His finished work; knowing that we are accepted. All we need to do is believe.
It's hard work trying to live up to the performance base of religion, but here's the good news. You don't have to! There's nothing left for you to do, He's already done it all. You just need to receive the free gift of righteousness and walk in what is already yours!
Nobody is perfect, but by the grace of God, we don’t have to be. We don’t have to live with rules on rocks when we have a relationship. Righteousness is a gift that is received, not achieved. God just wants you to trust Him.
It’s time we start trusting and stop trying to pay a debt that’s already paid. We don’t need to work to be forgiven, God has already forgiven us. He’s already made up His mind; nothing and no one will change it. So stop beating yourself up, and start resting in the finished work of Jesus.
Your union with Christ is taking place right now and His arms are always open. You can find refuge in this union; comfort in knowing you don't have to strive to get connected because He lives in you. The debt has been paid in full.
We have a responsibility as a church to equip, encourage, and empower believers, but the process will not be easy. However, the same power that raised Jesus to life lives on the inside of us. We were created on purpose for a purpose, and we can make a difference. We can be the solution.
We sometimes get in our own way, stumbling over things in our past when God is trying to push us to our future. But clarity cancels chaos, and when we’re focused on Him and His plan for us, we can navigate through any obstacle along the journey. So know that you’re already fit for the purpose God has for you. You were made for this.
Jesus didn't come so that you could have a mediocre life. He came that you might have an abundantly full one. A life with purpose and through Him, clear cut vision. You were born to make a difference, so what's your next step?
It's easy to tell someone to trust but harder to do. Especially when we're focused on what we can't do instead of what Christ has done. But you are no longer a slave, you are a child of God. Trust in the finished work of Jesus. He's already won.
It’s ok for you to have fear, but not ok for fear to have you because feelings should be indicators not dictators. Remember that God is faithful even when we aren’t, and if He brought you to it, He'll bring you through it.
God is greater than anything you will ever face, but what you believe will impact your behavior. The greatest struggle we deal with is asking "will He actually do it for me?" Yes He will. Don't let doubt and disbelief keep you from the promise of greater!
We all make mistakes, we all miss the mark, but there is good news. He took our guilt and exchanged it with his grace. And grace is greater than any mistakes you have ever made.
We're not exempt from pain, but we don't have to hold on to it. There is good news today, and His name is Jesus. His grace is enough to cover all of your hurt, pain, and shame, and far greater than anything that has ever happened to you.
In the midst of uncertainty, know that God is still able. He has a plan for your life and he will come through with provision and protection. So there's no need to panic, because He's already worked it out.
At times you may feel weary, but know that God will never leave you sitting there. And even when you're not where you're supposed to be, He's working things out for your good. So stand firm and know that He is God, and He's already won the battle.
Did you know that you can change communities? There's something within you that somebody needs. So when you share the good news, serve with compassion, and sow generously, you're setting up links for God to connect to others, and He's not done with you yet.
