The Great Story of Truth (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 275)

the-great-story-of-truth

Proverbs 2:1,9 (NLT)
My child, listen to what I say, and treasure my commands. Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair, and you will find the right way to go.

Nearly everyone in the world is searching for truth. Truth is that definite fact or certain idea that does not change. It does not move along with the winds and frequent changes of society. While some people look to meditation, yoga retreats, secularism, or reason as a means to find truth, believers know better. We know that the truth of God must be both believed and acted upon.

Keeping The Real (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 272)

keeping-the-real

Psalm 119:9 (NLT)
How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your word.

We live in a world that lacks authenticity. We’re obsessed with image, status, reputation, and appearance. It’s difficult to be real when the environment we are in, the people we are around, and even ourselves are faking it to impress others. Too many of us lack character and integrity. We don’t honor our word. We skim and skate to do just enough to get by. Read more…

ECHO (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 209)

ECHO

2 Corinthians 10:4 (NLT)
We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.

When people speak negative words to us, many times, we have a tendency to rehearse that negativity in our minds. Maybe it was a teacher who told you that you were stupid or dumb. Or maybe it was a parent who said you weren’t good enough. Or perhaps it was a friend, or someone you thought was your friend, who embarrassed you for your weaknesses. Read more…

Finding What You’re Looking For (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 180)

Finding What You’re Looking For

Jeremiah 29:13 (NLT)
If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.

“Let your heart guide you.” People offering this advice don’t understand something about the heart. It is a good place to turn into at times, but it is also deceitful. Following one’s heart has been the source of many hinderances, hangups, and heartbreaks. The heart doesn’t always leads in the right direction.  Read more…

Delighted in the Details (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 94)

Delighted in the Details

Psalm 37:23 (NLT)
The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.

God is not too big or too busy not to pay attention to each and every one of us. He cares about every detail of our lives. It is His concern that we follow not just any path, but the path He has set especially and specifically for us. When we trust Him, it pleases Him to direct every movement and moment of our lives.

Warning Signs (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 57)

Warning Signs

2 Chronicles 36:15 (NLT)
The Lord, the God of their ancestors, repeatedly sent his prophets to warn them, for he had compassion on his people and his Temple.

The world today is filled with warning signs. No matter who you are or where you live, warning signs exist all around you. When a storm, tornado, or hurricane is approaching, sirens alert us to the impending danger. When we are sick, the symptoms we experience are warning signs to let us know something is wrong.

Order My Steps

Order My Steps

“A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps” (Proverbs 16:9, NKJV).

God often takes us through difficult things in life in order to prepare us for greater things that He has planned. The things He takes us through are what we call experiences. Experiences can be stepping stones or stumbling blocks depending on how we choose to use them. If we allow God to use our experiences as stepping stones in our lives, we will eventually see that He is preparing us for the wonderful things He has in store for us. Read more…

Take Heed to the Warning Signs

Take Heed to the Warning Signs

“And the LORD God of their fathers sent warnings to them by His messengers, rising up early and sending them, because He had compassion on His people” (2 Chronicles 36:15).

The world today is filled with warning signs. No matter who you are or where you live, warning signs exist all around you. When a storm, tornado, or hurricane is approaching, sirens alert us to the impending danger. On the back of certain products, there are labels that tell us how harmful the product is or can be. When we are sick, the symptoms we experience are warning signs to let us know something is wrong. Stop signs, red lights, smoke detectors, and hazard symbols are all warning signs to keep us back from potential danger. Read more…
