Mankind tends to focus on what's happening, and I am guilty of the same, but there's something higher than what's happening—God's purposes.
Everything in the world is exactly how it should be, or God would change it. This is our sovereignty dilemma.
We are positioned to perfectly witness God’s divine orchestration of our lives so that we might increasingly come to know Him and love Him.
The heart is the seat and center of human life, and is where the issues of the spirit and the will are settled.
I'm anchored to my heart because it beats with the reality of me. We can't be men after God's own heart without being connected to our hearts first.
The heart sends out clues to signal us, like red flags of distress. These waving banners are sent up like flares to warn and attract our attention.
Our hearts are speaking to us; we must listen to hear what they say. They tell our stories—who we are, what we struggle with and why.
There's someone trying to lead us. It isn't accidental, it's quite purposeful. They desire to motivate us, guide our decisions, and direct our activity.
How can I call the most tormenting “thing” in my life a blessing rather than a curse? Oh, I feel like I have an answer from the Spirit and this sheds such a light on my soul and my life.
Why would God call someone completely engrossed in his own wounds and self to so completely serve another?
To lend our ear to the accuser is listening to Satan’s words by leaving the Lord’s voice. If he can surround us with evil people spitting at us, and get us to spit in return, he wins.
Our culture is literally inflamed with “self.” We are consumed with self-interests, self-promotion, and gratifying self. We have become our own lovers and it is only going to get worst.
