Hopeful Expectations (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 262)


Psalm 130:5 (NLT)
I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word.

Isn’t it interesting how we tend to count on people more than God? We put faith in careers, relationships, activities, security, and even travel and have a good deal of expectation that people will do what they say, that we’ll arrive halfway around the world safe and sound, that we will be loved, and that our jobs are stable, and that our families are safe in the communities we live in.

Plans for Good (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 168)

Plans for Good

Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

Insecurity and fear are mainstays in our society. If we’re not careful, they can overtake our lives. Too often we give permission to fear and allow it to ruin our confidence and hinder us from pursuing our purpose. God did not create us to give in to the grip of these emotions. God has amazingly good plans for us that we have yet to see realized. Read more…

Only One Exception (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 161)

Only One Exception

John 14:6 (NLT)
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

The path to salvation is like a one-way street. There are no other options on a one-way street. It takes you in one direction and that’s it. No exceptions. For centuries, people have falsely believed that all roads lead to truth, or all roads lead to God. But the truth is, there is only one way. There is only one exception. Jesus is that exception.

Voluntary Humility and Love (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 151)

Voluntary Humility and Love

John 10:17-18 (NLT)
“The Father loves me because I sacrifice my life so I may take it back again. No one can take my life from me. I sacrifice it voluntarily. For I have the authority to lay it down when I want to and also to take it up again. For this is what my Father has commanded.”

Jesus Christ is the greatest example of humility, love, and service. He is the epitome of what it means to trust and obey God with all your heart and willingly yield to God the Father’s will. Yielding our lives to God’s service begins with laying down our lives so He can use it for His glory. We cannot continue to run our lives and expect God to be able to manifest His will through us at the same time.  Read more…

Facing Strength (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 121)

Facing Strength

Proverbs 24:5 (NLT)
The wise are mightier than the strong, and those with knowledge grow stronger and stronger.

God is our strength, but He also gives us strength. If we live long enough, at some point and time, we will face obstacles. We will find ourselves between a rock and a hard place and feel we have no place to go and no one to turn to. Roadblocks can come in many different forms through sickness, relational issues, emotional hurts, and even spiritual hangups. Read more…

Stop Trying to Fix Your Weaknesses (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 93)

Stop Trying to Fix Your Weaknesses

(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #2)

“Winners evaluate themselves in a positive manner and look for their strengths as they work to overcome weaknesses.”
— Zig Ziglar

We’re not perfect. It is a fact of life that each and every one of us possess both strengths and weaknesses. Imagine a world where everybody was good at everything and we did it perfectly. That’s a nice thought, but that world would be pretty boring. It is both our strengths and weaknesses that make us who we are, that assist us in creating teams, in developing business models, and in reaching our goals in life. Read more…

Selfless Sacrifice (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 81)

Selfless Sacrifice

1 John 2:2 (NLT)
He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins—and not only our sins but the sins of all the world.

What if Jesus came into the world and lived only for Himself? Then what if He decided death was too harsh a path to take so He just skipped Gethsemane and went straight back to Heaven? Besides that, what if He just forgot about us altogether once He arrived in Heaven and He didn’t watch over us or answer our prayers? We would be left thinking how selfish.  Read more…

The Highest Honor (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 26)

The Highest Honor

James 4:10 (NLT)
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.

Humility is tranquility of spirit, quietness of heart, the deepest honor, and an attainable goal. It is a place of total dependence on and trust in God. We honor God with an attitude of meekness and an understanding that everything we could want or need must come from Him. Humility is an honor for those who embrace it and seek after it because it is where God pulls out His choicest servants.
