Praying is usually one of the last disciplines we master. Have you found that true in your life?
The might that created Niagara Falls, that showered the earth with dazzling oceans, and that rolled the stone away from the tomb is at our disposal.
I don’t know what God has in store for you, and you won’t either until you purposefully and intentionally respond to His call. As Pastor Chuck Swindoll says, “Been resisting God’s call on your life? Don’t be afraid to follow. He leads you in love.”
Christ’s Resurrection means believers too shall be raised—there is unimaginable dessert coming! But some believers may not be aware that’s not all it means. There’s more than just pie in the sky when we die.
Have you ever seen a dog reach the end of his leash? Once he does he comes straight to a halt. We all reach the end of our own figurative leashes with each other and with God at one point or another. The good news is God will always forgive us and always extend His grace to us, no matter what. We just need to accept it. Now shouldn’t we do the same with others?
Despite messing up time and time again, God still lavishes His grace on us. And because we’ve been given so much grace we need to pass it on. Every day there are opportunities to show grace—everyone needs grace.
God lavishes his grace on us and there’s nothing we can do to pay Him back. Admit your need for God and claim His free gift of grace today.
As followers of our Lord, we believe He leads us in a certain direction in pursuit of a precise goal. His leading is unmistakably clear. Not necessarily logical or explainable, but clear.
Look beyond the tough stuff by remembering that God is working in and through all things—everything. He has a higher good in mind than just our temporal good.
God designed the Scriptures to nourish us and to penetrate every cell of our souls. He wants the words to fill us and become part of our deepest being. The book of Ephesians is no exception.
