I believe that it is much easier to love (or hate!) a stranger than it is to love your neighbor, someone you actually know.
“If one loves God truly…he is known by God…and he is owned by Him.” Part of truly loving God is loving the ones He loves, as He wants to love them. Do we?
The battle for my soul turned on the issue of ownership and now my daily cross confronts the same: Who owns me? Is it Jesus or have I enthroned another?
This is the bottom line of every exchange with the Lord: Who owns me? Do I belong to Jesus in reality or by mere verbal declaration? Either way, I am owned!
When I join Jesus, praying what He gives me to pray, I am then in the flow of the Spirit and the will and purpose of God. That’s where I really want to be!
When we hear that someone we love is unwell, how many of you (like me!) tend to immediately pray for healing and just assume that God blesses that prayer?
Being focused on what God has for ME is not selfish. In fact, it's vital for a life of adventure! So let’s talk about how to be on self in an obedient way.
God gave me a love of the truth, and I'm grateful. But loving truth is no substitute for faith, and only IN faith does it become a love of the One Who IS Truth.
God’s sovereign choices for my life seem to have been designed to create a rocky road to salvation. Why did He put such obstacles between my heart and His?
When we block the flow of God’s love into our hearts, we have a love deficit and a big problem. Is this deficit behind the character issues that plague us?
What are the markers for a life lived in the belief of God’s love and not mere knowledge of it? Do you BELIEVE that you are loved? Does your life reflect it?
Most of my questions of God are "Why?" Like, “Why did You allow this suffering?” My questions reveal my values: comfort and safety. But what does God value?
