Digging In Deeper

I’ve been struggling this past year with wanting some answers from the Lord that, so far, haven’t been forthcoming.  I have prayed, fasted, pleaded and cried out for the answers to my questions.  When they have not come, I have sought out godly counsel by talking to pastors, other ministers, friends and other wise folks.  In my search I have bought and read so many books and CD teachings that I can open my own bookstore!  I have...

Do You REALLY Believe the Promises of God?

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  Romans 10:9  For most people, becoming a Christian is very easy in the sense that they hear the promise of God for salvation and they believe it and they act on it as if it is true.  What about the multitudes of promises beyond salvation?  If we really and truly believed, and acted upon, them, shouldn’t we all...

Faith v. Feelings

So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.”   Mark 11:22 As mature Christians we are told we aren’t to rely on feelings to know God is with us.  If that is the case, I must not be a very mature Christian because I sure like the feel of God! When surrounded by a world struggling in turmoil, sin and despair, it is sometimes not surprising when doubts start to spout up.  When He seems far removed and the walk seems...

Live Pain-Free!

Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you.  Psalm 55:22 Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.   Matthew 11:28 Living in emotional pain of any kind can be very discouraging.  Obviously, when one goes through a sad time, such as a death of a loved one, a divorce, loss of a job one loves, death of a beloved pet, a major sickness, etc., there will be a season of troubled emotions.  That...
