Take hold of my instructions; don't let them go.

Remain Confident

Yet I am confident I will see the Lord's goodness

while I am here in the land of the living.

Wait patiently for the Lord.

Be brave and courageous.

Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.

Psalm 27:13-14 NLT



The Lord of God is completely aware of every pressing or pressuring matter before us. There is nothing about us that escapes His attention. He knows what is and what is not. However, the… Continue

Receive

By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.

I have refined you, but not as silver is refined.

Rather, I have refined you in the furnace of suffering.

Good or Bad

If you search for good, you will find favor;

but if you search for evil, it will find you!

Proverbs 11:27 NLT



We bless or curse our selves by that which we choose to give our attention and focus to. Constantly looking for and majoring on the flaws, faults, and all the things that are not right in others is simply gathering seeds of bitterness, contention and hostilities into our hearts. These seeds will in turn produce a harvest of evil, unrest and ongoing controversy with… Continue

The Difference

But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage and the cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)--[all of these shall have] their part… Continue

The Shift

When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch."

Simon answered, "Master, we've worked hard all night and haven't caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets."

Luke 4:4 – 5 NIV



Nothing is more frustrating than exerting huge amounts of energy, effort and time to do all the right things and to still continue to come up fruitless, empty and unsuccessful. When this continues to happen on a… Continue

From the Threshing to the Threshold

The grain is ground to make bread.

People do not ruin it by crushing it forever.

The farmer separates the wheat from the chaff with his cart,

but he does not let his horses grind it.

Isaiah 28:28 NVC



The Almighty God's love is truly unfailing and His wisdom is infinite. Grain has to be crushed to remove the chaff. The chaff served a purpose during the early stages of the grain. The chaff was present encapsulating the grain from the first budding all the way… Continue

Get Ready

Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work for beginning to end.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 NLT



Discerning times, purpose and seasons is critical. Everything that God has created has an ordained purpose and understanding purpose plays a huge part in knowing how our function. God’s work and how He does things is not chaotic. Everything God does has order. He has… Continue

Don't Get Sucked In!

There are many out there taking other paths, choosing other goals, and trying to get you to go along with them. I've warned you of them many times; sadly, I'm having to do it again. All they want is easy street. They hate Christ's Cross. But easy street is a dead-end street. Those who live there make their bellies their gods; belches are their praise; all they can think of is their appetites.

But there's far more to life for us.

Philippians 3:18-20 Message Bible

Anticipate The Shift

You can make many plans,

but the Lord's purpose will prevail.

Proverbs 19:21 NLT



Planning is a wise thing to do. If we fail to plan then in actuality we plan to fail. God is a god of order and everything has a set time and purpose. He requires of us to look further down the road than where we are now. Some are doing nothing claiming to be waiting on the return of the Lord. But these are called wicked servants that do nothing except serve themselves, their appetite and… Continue

Outlast It

When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you.

When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown!

When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up;

the flames will not consume you.

For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.

Isaiah 43:2 & 3a NLT



Deep waters, great troubles, rivers of difficulty, fires of oppression and flames can not destroy, consume, drown or burn up they who… Continue
