Feeding the Fireby Ryan DuncanLook to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always. - 1 Chronicles 16:11Earlier this year I went fishing with my family up in the boundary waters of Minnesota. Ironically, the first day we pushed out onto the lake in our canoes, the weather was ideal. The sun was shining, the sky was clear, and it was warm but with a nice breeze to take the edge off. Then, like s...  Read More

Standing Strong and Tall through PrayerCharles StanleyNehemiah 1Nehemiah was a man who lived on his knees.

Because of Nehemiah’s humble dependence, God was able to use him greatly to achieve His purposes.This principle is still true for believers today. God can use us in the most awesome fashion if we'l...  Read More

Fighting Against Self-Focus - Chuck SwindollDo nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. (Philippians 2:3-4)Our Father, we who operate in such selfish realms often find ourselves preoccupied with stuff of our own. We focus on...  Read More

For a Heart of Service – Chuck SwindollIt's a pretty awesome thing, Lord, to be in Your service. It's a lot easier to begin and run a company, even a big corporation, than it is to serve the body of Christ. As humans, we see the outward appearance, but You look at the heart. We reward achievements that everybody notices, but You reward those things that nobody knows about. You reward motives behin...  Read More

God’s Involvement - Mike FabarezSome say that those of us who do not believe that God continues to regularly suspend natural law in our presence the way he did through the apostles and prophets in Scripture, somehow “put God in a box” or seek to diminish his work in the world. But if you think it through, it is actually quite the opposite. Those who ardently seek the supernatural alteration of “na...  Read More

Walk with God - John NorthGenesis 5:24  “Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.”Walk with God, run with God, stand with God, be still with God!Enoch is one of my favorite Bible characters. The Bible doesn’t give Enoch’s life story a lot of screen time but he gets mentioned in Genesis 5 and Hebrews 11 and what is said about him is enough to make me admire him. Enoch was approximat...  Read More

Lifestyle – Chuck SwindollWe live in a negative, hostile world. Face it, my friend, the system that surrounds us focuses on the negatives: what is wrong, not what is right; what is missing, not what is present; what is ugly, not what is beautiful; what is destructive, not what is constructive; what cannot be done, not what can be done; what hurts, not what helps; what we lack, not what we have. Yo...  Read More

Just as there are distinct events that mark the beginning of the 7-year tribulation period, there are several distinct events that mark the halfway point which I mention in my last post. You might feel fortunate that you survived the first half, but don’t pat yourself on the back yet, because your odds of surviving the last 3½ go down dramatically.The first 3½ years were no cakewalk, but the last ...  Read More

Pleasing People or Pleasing God?Tony EvansMake sure you are doing what God wants you to do—then do it with all your strength. —Attributed to George WashingtonOne problem that often stands in the way of a life of excellence comes when we live for people more than for God.
