Choosing To Change

Every January 1st many of us make some decisions about the year to come. “This year I am going to…” Many times these decisions concern physical appearance, personal habits, exercise regimens, financial goals, even spiritual choices. God has called us to set before ourselves the priority of growth. 2 Peter 3:18 calls us to “Grow […]

Faithfulness & Patience

Hebrews 12:1b encourages us to “run with patience the race that is set before us.”  God’s plan is revealed many times throughout scripture to be one that has the eternal and not the immediate as the ultimate goal.   God spent the first eighty years of Moses life preparing him for the real ministry of bringing […]

What Are We Asking For?

Luke 11:13 quotes Jesus as saying, “If ye then being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?” Many times believers go to God in prayer and come away dissatisfied with the result because we are guilty […]
