May the Lord direct your lives as you show God’s love and Christ’s endurance.
Jesus said to him, “Whoever starts to plow and looks back is not fit for the kingdom of God.”
A good person obtains favor from the Lord, but the Lord condemns everyone who schemes.
Personal renewal always precedes corporate revival.
Corporate revival precedes the organic, spontaneous spiritual awakening of our communities.
Do you want to know where you should be focusing your efforts?
Your personal relationship with God.
Get that right, and everything else with get righted, too.
God comes first.
God comes last.
Let God direct all your in-betweens, too.
How does one live a life of faith?
One moment at a time.
It’s a continual surrender to God’s plan and purpose.
Not my will, but Thine be done.
Your Kingdom come, Your will be done.
We’re not here to do our own thing or to follow our bliss.
That’s what got us all into this mess in the first place.
Why are addictions and other obsessive-compulsive behavior patterns so prevalent in our world?
Because the enemy sold us a lie.
He corrupted God’s original design for our lives.
We’re meant to be dependent on God.
We’re designed to abide in His presence.
All of our pleasure and comfort should come from God.
We take matters into our own hands and get trapped in our own dysfunction of personal preference.
It doesn’t matter what it is, the result is the same.
Separation from God.
Sin is sin.
Deal with it.
Or it will run rampant in your life, and in your community.
Recovery circles are amazing places to see God’s power on display.
One changed life impacts many others.
It’s as if when God grabs a hold of your life and turns you into a living stone, He throws you back into the pond and the waves of impact ripple outward.
We need to place our trust in God.
Do what He tells us to do and leave the results up to Him.
Show God’s love.
Endure suffering like Christ on the cross.
Keep going forward no matter what.
He’s leading us into uncharted waters and new territory.
Our spiritual disciplines need to be rock solid.
Quit worrying about how to make things happen and instead just trust and obey.
We have the mind of Christ.
Let God do the heavy lifting of thinking for you.
When in doubt, ask your Father in heaven what to do next.
He won’t lead you astray.
Holy Spirit of God breathe on me.
Breathe new life and fire into me.
Pour out rivers of living water through me.
Bless me so that I may be a blessing to others.
In Christ Jesus we pray.
