Follow the Process (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 348)

follow-the-process

1 Timothy 4:15 (NLT)
Give your complete attention to these matters. Throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone will see your progress.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if perfection and instant transformation just washed over us as soon as we entered into new life in Jesus Christ? From that very moment onward, we wouldn’t have to worry about temptation or falling into sin, or renewing our minds daily or any of those things that are necessary in the believer’s life. We would be perfect and then there would really be no need for us to continue living on earth. Read more…

How to Know God Is Good (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 287)

how-to-know-god-is-good

Psalm 145:9 (NLT)
The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation.

You know how some people tend to use a lot of salt on their food or sugar in their coffee — yours truly being one of them — we don’t sprinkle it on; we pour it on. God’s goodness is very much like that. He doesn’t just sprinkle his grace and mercy and love into our lives; he pours it on. In fact, he not only pours, he showers. Read more…

Your Will Be Done Leads to Trust (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 258)

your-will-be-done-leads-to-trust

Matthew 6:10 (NLT)
May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.

God has a specific plan and purpose for each and every one of our lives. The Bible tells us that his ways are good and his plans are perfect. Part of being a believer and a participant in God’s family is being willing to search out God’s will and to allow his will to be done even when we don’t understand it and it seemingly doesn’t make sense.

The Deep Well (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 187)

The Deep Well

Matthew 5:3 (NLT)
God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

Everyone wants to be happy. Self-help books and manuals offer tips and strategies, therapists give suggestions to their clients, ministers have developed formulas that are based on material possessions — all in an attempt to give people the happiness they crave. Lessons have even been created to teach school children how to be happy.  Read more…

What Are You Pursuing? (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 37)

What Are You Pursuing

Proverbs 21:21 (NLT)
Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life, righteousness, and honor.

What are you pursuing in life? Is it money, power, or reputation? Is it fame, fortune, or self-importance? Or is it something better like love, life, and service? Whatever matters most to you is the thing you will go after. We do not follow after something or someone that we do not love deeply. For many people, life is a chase. But what you are chasing determines your goals, motives, and purpose.

Ubiquitous God (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 23)

Ubiquitous God

Psalm 139:7 (NLT)
I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence!

You are never alone. This isn’t the tagline to a horror movie or the assurance of an insurance or security company. This is the comfort and the promise of God Almighty. Wherever we go, He is there. Whatever we do, He is there. Nothing and nobody ceases to be under His watchful eye.

Keep Your Faith Up (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 17)

Keep Your Faith Up

Hebrews 11:1 (NLT)
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

The word “faith” means so many different things to so many people. It is a sacred word and a secular word. We’re told to have faith that everything will work out. Or to trust the process of life. Or to believe that some trying circumstance is for our good.

But what is faith really? How do we know when we have it and when we don’t?

Chosen To Be Holy (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 10)

Chosen To Be Holy

1 Peter 1:15-16 (NLT)
But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.”

Who is sufficient enough or perfect enough to be holy in everything? No one is. Neither you or I are capable of complete holiness in all things. We can be holy only by the power of God working in our lives.
