Whether it’s at home, work, or church, God calls us to be servant leaders who reflect humility and conviction. By drawing on the power of the Holy Spirit, we can be models of inspiration to others.
Staci's life seems to be going really well—she enjoys her church, her family, and she even likes going to school. But all of that is about to change. Now Staci must learn how to trust God's plans when everything around her seems out of control.
Something everyone agrees on is the key in life is change. And it’s not optional. Think about the last 10 years—you’re not the same person, are you? In fact, your life today compared to then probably doesn’t even resemble each other. That’s because of change.
We’ve all heard it said that we never stand taller than when we kneel before God. But what happens when we offer our prayers and petitions to God? Does He change His mind? Can we alter His plan or reverse His course? If not, then why pray? In this message, we analyze Abraham’s passionate intercession on behalf of Lot and his family in the face of the imminent destruction of Sodom. We can understand the struggle that occurs between petition (what we ask for) and desire (why we ask) and gain insight into the important role prayer plays in our lives.
“Upper” days lift our spirits and send them soaring. “Downer” days leave us sad and discouraged. On a few occasions, we get both extremes on the same day! We start the day elated, but as the day wears on, everything turns upside down. The events recorded in Genesis 18 represent one of those “upper-downer” days for Abraham. By the end of it, Abraham must have felt mentally, emotionally, and spiritually exhausted! As we face our own upper-downer days, we can learn from Abraham’s experience how to put things in proper perspective and find our balance.
