Prayer is wonderful! This morning, I have a message for someone out there. You are considering making a big move, but I wanted you to consider this verse from Acts 17:26: God has “. . . determined the times set for [you] and the exact place where [you] should live.” Continue reading
I don’t know if you have ever read C.S. Lewis’ series, The Narnian Chronicles. If not, you need to grab it and immerse yourself in the wonderful series. Without a doubt, it is my favorite series of books to read. I do suggest that you read it yourself, first, before you read it to your kids. Through his allegory, Lewis has captured many fascinating aspects of our faith. Continue reading
I want to give you a heads-up on something. I am always encouraging you to pursue the Lord; to be hungry for His Righteousness. But, as we grow closer to the Lord, an amazing thing begins to happen. Slowly, a sense of awe and respect grows within us. It is not something we force (or even cause) to happen, it just grows and, at times, seems to overwhelm us.

Paul presented some excellent guidance for us to reexamine the source of our problems. Remember?
Finally, receive your power from the Lord and from his mighty strength. Put on all the armor that God supplies. In this way, you can take a stand against the devil’s strategies. This is not a wrestling match against a human opponent. We are wrestling with rulers, authorities, the powers who govern this world of darkness, and spiritual forces that control evil in the heavenly world (Ephesians 6:10-12) Continue reading
