When we acknowledge God is in control (not us) it makes a difference in how we live...and in how we die.
Though often overlooked in our comfortable society, laziness is a dangerous sin…with the potential to cripple us spiritually. Chuck Swindoll calls us to begin actively pursuing right living…rather than indulging in slothfulness.
Some things are worth waiting for. Do you struggle with God’s timing? Think of Ecclesiastes 3:11, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” Trust that God knows what He’s doing and wait patiently for Him to act.
There may be people in your life who are causing conflict and tension—take it first to God in prayer. Refuse to retaliate and trust God for the outcome.
Waiting for God isn’t easy. It’s because His timing is different than ours. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “God has made everything beautiful in its time.” This means we must wait for God. He will make everything beautiful in its time.
Life isn’t black and white—there’s a lot of grey. There are times to compromise, and times to stand firm. Where we go wrong is when we compromise our theology to accommodate our lifestyle.
It’s easy to lose ourselves to fantasy. But God’s divine perspective grounds us in a proper view of the real world. He alone provides meaning and purpose to an otherwise pointless life.
God gives us the ability to do good. True good deeds don’t come from an exchange mentality, when you give expecting something back. True good works are selfless.
You are among our friends who’ve made us a braided cord, not easily broken…partners who’ve enabled us to proclaim the Good News to a needy world.
It's lonely at the top. The dream of climbing the ladder to success is more often than not a distress-ridden nightmare.
