Join Chuck Swindoll as he helps seminary students navigate things that enhance their years at seminary.
We are surrounded by insurmountable opportunities. The problem is, they're often disguised as impossible situations.
God sees everything from the beginning to the end. But you have a limited view. Although in the moment you may be feeling defeated or forgotten, God sees the final scene. And from his perspective, it’s beautiful.
Never discount anything of your past. God can pick it up and use it in the most incredible ways. If you have skills or talents you've put on the back burner, don't be surprised if one day you find yourself in a position where God gives you an opportunity to use them again. He draws from your life experiences at just the right time and in just the right place.
Jesus was referred to by the prophet as the “hope of Israel.” Hope always is looking ahead and those many righteous Jews down through the centuries living on tiptoe, anticipating Messiah’s coming, fulfilling the promise that He would arrive.
It’s hard to imagine what heaven will be like. But the Bible does say it’s a real place and there’s nothing you can do to earn your place there. You just need to accept God’s free gift of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
Despite the hymns we sing, many people think they can earn their way into heaven if their good deeds outweigh their bad deeds. Replace your good deeds with the Good News—your salvation was accomplished on the cross. It’s simply a gift. All you have to do is accept it.
People are sometimes uncomfortable with the notion that God is sovereign and in complete control. We prefer to think we're in charge of our own destiny. But in this message, Chuck Swindoll assures us that the sovereignty of God is our greatest comfort.
Living happily ever after isn’t usually God’s plan for us, but what He does have in store for us is a great adventure. Walking with God is the most exciting and rewarding of all experiences on earth.
