Hope: The Happy Anticipation of Good Things

I define hope as "the happy anticipation of good things." When we anticipate the goodness of God in our lives, it opens the door to greater happiness. So are you aggressively hoping for something good to happen to you? As long as we live, you and I are always going to be heading somewhere. God… Continue reading Hope: The Happy Anticipation of Good Things

Press on and Enjoy Your Progress

It's true that we all still have a long way to go. I used to get discouraged about how far I had to go, and it seemed like I was reminded of it every day, sometimes every hour. I carried a constant sense of failure, a feeling that I just wasn't who I needed to… Continue reading Press on and Enjoy Your Progress

Receive God’s Grace

Grace is the power of God to live the way He's called you to live. God, however, won't give us the grace to be disobedient. If He's telling us not to do something that we decide to do anyway, we'll experience the painful loss of His anointing. Grace equals ability. God gives us grace to… Continue reading Receive God’s Grace

Faith, Not Feelings, Please God

God's omnipresence and the manifestation of his presence are two different things. One is a fact; the other is often a feeling. God is always present, even when you are unaware of him, and his presence is too profound to be measured by mere emotion. Yes, he wants you to sense his presence, but he's… Continue reading Faith, Not Feelings, Please God

Seeking Feeling is Not Worship

God has not promised "you will always feel my presence." In fact, God admits that sometimes he hides his face from us. (Isaiah 45:15) This is a normal part of the testing and maturing of your friendship with God. It is painful and disconcerting, but it is absolutely vital for the development of your faith.… Continue reading Seeking Feeling is Not Worship

Don’t Meditate on the Little Disappointments

Deep hurt doesn't just come from huge disappointments, like when we fail to get the job or promotion we really wanted. Deep emotional hurt can come from a series of minor annoyances and frustrations. That's why we must know how to handle the small, daily disappointments and keep them in perspective. When you focus on… Continue reading Don’t Meditate on the Little Disappointments

Launch Out in Faith

There comes a point in life where you have to stop talking about and praying about a barrier in your life. You must step out -- in spite of your feelings, your fears, and your doubts.

Move Forward with God’s Promises

What does God promise us if we say, "I want you to use me." He promises you three things that can all found in Joshua 1. God promises strength -- "No one will be able to stand against you." (Joshua 1:5) In other words, what God asks you to do, he'll give you the power… Continue reading Move Forward with God’s Promises

Let Go of Doubt

There are two things that cause self-doubt in your life -- Comparing your abilities to others - When you compare your abilities to others, you will begin to doubt my abilities. Instead of looking to God, you start looking at everybody else. You think these other people have more talent, more abilities, more education, or… Continue reading Let Go of Doubt

Honesty Outweighs Perfection

We can care too much about what people think of us to the point where it totally immobilizes us and we are petrified about looking wrong. But do you know what? I think if we are more truthful, we will actually get more respect than we do by trying to hide everything, pretending we're perfect.… Continue reading Honesty Outweighs Perfection
