The bible says that in the end times certain things will happen, like wars, famines and earthquakes. Matthew 24:6-7 K.J.V. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For much of the world these things are now a daliy reality. Jesus said… Continue

The word "gentleness" sounds so much like weakness that we are tempted to think of the word "whimp". Nothing could be further from the truth! Jesus said "blessed are the meek (gentle): for they shall inherit the earth. Notice, the gentle don't strive, manipulate, or compete like others, yet they inherit everything. When you "inherit" something you don't have to strive for it, you receive it because you're loved, valued, and part of the family. Apostle Paul said 2 Corinthians 10:1 (K… Continue

Mt 5:7 Blessed [are] the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Once we let go of our need to judge others, we experience an incredible freedom. We are free to "obtain mercy." Most of us aren't aware of how deeply rooted our prejudices are. We've convinced ourselves we relate easily to people who are different from us. But spontaneous thoughts, uncensored words and knee-jerk reactions reveal that our prejudices color our thinking. They make us lose our sense of security by being just "other."… Continue

Make your compass in life total commitment to Christ. Consult him on every step take. Let him set your course and he will direct you to places of freedom and fulfillment you never knew existed. Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. " So kneel at the feet of Jesus today and say, I am nothing; You are everything. Here are… Continue

Prasie deepens the bond of love between us and God. God's love for us is never diminshed, but ours for him often grows weak. In praise, we rehearse his love for us and, in effect, fan the fire of love for him that the spirit has stated within us. It is good for us to remember and rehearse how wonderful God is, for that strengthens us in Christ and increases our motivation to be like him in his goodness, which increases our joy.
We were made for the the purpose of praising God, of giving… Continue

Proverbs 18:24 A man [that hath] friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend [that] sticketh closer than a brother. For a person to feel valued they must know you genuinely value them. To feel respected, they must know you genuinely respect them. When we devalue others we start treating them like object, not people. So what is the solution? Focus on their strengths, and eventually they'll give you the right to help them in their areas of struggle. Too many of us are good at… Continue

Good Idea or God-Idea? Whatever you do, it must be more than just a good idea... it must be a :God-idea". A good idea is a fifty/fifty propostion-in other words, it may be a good idea to you and no one else. But a God-idea is one that you've consulted the Lord about and gotten the "go-ahead".
ALWAYS CONSULT GOD FIRST!
John 10:4-5 tells us that his sheep know his voice and a stranger they will not follow. If you get an idea and you think it's a good one, consult the Lord about it.… Continue

I wanted to remind you to remember Jesus in this hour. It's not about all the things but it's about living a life that when people look upon you they see Jesus. Give of your self today...Love someone today....Make someone happy in their life today.....Don't let another day go by and you miss the opportunity to turn some things around and put somethings in order. Take a chance! Trust in God! You need to do this for you, and you need to do it now. You can't make him or her love you; or please… Continue

Hear counsel, receive instruction, and accept correction, that you may be wise in the time to come. Proverbs 19:20 You may wonder, "How do I know when to confront someone about an issue, and when to let it go?" If you are too eager to set someone straight, it may not be God motivating you. Correction must be done in love to build up the person and not tear them down. Always pray and wait until you know wha tGod wants you to do. You must be led of the Spirit. If after prayer you still feel that… Continue
