Fight Over Anxiety

Fight Over Anxiety

The reason you and I can overcome anxiety is that we have a loving father who cares for every need in our lives. We don’t have to carry our burdens anymore, because we have a Savior who cares for us. He lovingly makes himself available for us every moment of every day.

Hit and Run

Hit and Run

Most of us walk around with wounds we don’t deserve, injuries we didn’t ask for, and it hurts. We feel victimized even by those we love the most. Yet as awful as our pain is, it’s not unnoticed. God sees. He knows.

Pulled Over

Pulled Over

We have a Savior who intercedes for us. We have Christ who stands on our behalf making intercession for us. Because he died, we get mercy. Because he bore the price for our sin, we are justified. Have you received Jesus in your heart? Are you confident that the price for your sin has been paid?

Hiding God's Word in My Heart

While I know that it’s not simply my memorizing a bible verse that will gain me victory over sin, I’ve found David’s words to be true. The more I immerse my mind and heart in God’s Word, the less my mind dwells on sin and the more enthralled with Christ I become. What are you feasting on these...

Blessings in Trials

Blessings in Trials

Some of my best spiritual blessings have been born out of my trials. It’s typically in my trials that my heart longs for more of Jesus and I sense the nearness of his presence. It’s in my trials that I finally surrender to my weaknesses and see God’s power at work in me.

Be Still

Be Still

Spending time with God is less about getting through my Bible reading plan and more about enjoying the intimate presence of the almighty. I long to shut down all of the noise except the whisper of his voice. How is your time with the Lord? Are you sensing his very presence, or are you still in a...

Radical Jesus

Radical Jesus

Everything Jesus ever did seems counterintuitive. Instead of feeding his ego, Jesus cultivated his heart. He knew that only time with the Father was enough to satisfy our deepest longings and give us the strength that we need.

Precious Treasure

Precious Treasure

If you’ve been a Christian for some time, has your joy changed since the day you got saved? Are you still chasing after Jesus or have you substituted him for lesser pleasures? Have you settled for satisfaction in fleeting pleasures or do you still see Jesus as the most precious treasure in the world?

Addictions

Addictions

We tend to turn to our addictions in our pain. It’s only as we confess that our hearts are cold to the Lord that we’ll find ourselves in a place where God and his Word become our place of refuge.
