Living in the Now

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you – Psalm 32:8 My mind has been set on a future dream. I can almost see it coming to life. It will be more than I ever dreamed. I assure myself of this. I will have the ability to lay back a bit easier. Friends will be abundant and hospitable. I assure myself of this. Now God, you need to come through. But, He hasn’t. He hasn’t answered my request. He has been silent. He has been inactive, or so it seems. Where did you go, God? Living in the Land of Wait can feel like it controls your so-called fate. It can seem that everything hinges on this one thing coming true. It can seem like you are

The High Cost of Wavering Faith

– Deuteronomy 1:19-40 God has given believers personalities, abilities, and spiritual gifts which will equip them to accomplish His specific plans for their lives.

However, Sunday morning is not the only time for receiving a steady diet of nourishing principles and encouragement

The Prayer of Jabez

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested. – 1 Chronicles 4:10 Jabez’s prayer is misunderstood by many people. They think prayer is a way to get what we want. But that is wrong.God doesn’t exist for our pleasure, nor does He exist to do our bidding. When my heart is aligned with God’s, my prayers won’t be about my desires, but about His. Jabez understood that God wanted to bless him.
