Lead us, Deliver us - Lord's Prayer Matt 6:13

Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one. This verse is from Matthew 6:13, part of the Lord's Prayer. Leadership I love how this part of the Lord's Prayer absolutely assumes that God is leading us. It reminds me of that verse in Exodus: "In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed." Or, the psalm, "You are my shepherd." Lately I have been reading a book on thankfulness, based around 1 Thes 5:18 "Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus." The book...

Be the Light of the World

  The Bible calls on us to be the light of the world and the salt of the earth. We are no longer in darkness, bound to a sinful lifestyle, hard-hearted or blind to the Truth. We are filled with God’s light, and we are called to live in the light. When our light shines, we bring glory to God and magnify His holy name. How do we let our light shine? First of all, if our light is going to shine, it is going to be visible. That means that people can see it, and it is most clearly...

Abundant Living

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers (3 John 1:2). God wants us to prosper every day in all that we do. To prosper is to flourish and become strong. When we seek Him daily, applying and practicing the Biblical principles He has given us, we will prosper in every area of our lives. We will experience better health (physical and mental), more joy, greater peace, deeper love and genuine success - true abundant living. The opposite of prosper is failure or struggle. It is not God’s will...

I will Trust in Your Unfailing Love

What is this unfailing love that is spoken of in Psalm 13:5? Unfailing love is a love that is not giving way; not falling short of expectation; and is completely dependable. In his unfailing love, God chases after us with an endless passion. This is such a grand idea. The Lord God Almighty with his perfection and endless energy runs after each one of us, offering us His abundant goodness and faithful love. Sometimes we make the mistake of thinking the opposite-that God could care less about us, He is too busy with other more important things. Or that if...

Be Strong and Courageous

Be Strong In life we are usually in a storm, coming out of a storm or heading into one. And often its not just one. To be strong in the midst of it all is an expression of faith. There is no moving forward without some strength and courage, but most of all, without faith. Do you think God would leave Joshua high and dry? If God has called you, he is with you. Courage doesn't mean that we am not afraid. It means that we fear God more than we fear our situations. We trust in the divine resources...
