  • Making the Rest the Best

    02/16/2021 I heard a story about a skydiving instructor as he was teaching his class of rookies. One of the rookies asked, “Hey, if our chutes don’t open, how long do we have until we hit the ground?” Continue reading…

  • Faith and Patience

    02/15/2021 I hate waiting, don't you? Waiting can get us all stressed out and frustrated. And when we wait, and wait, and WAIT for God to work and answer our prayers, it's easy to start thinking that God really doesn't care. But God tells us in Hebrews 6:12 it's through faith and patience that we inherit His promises. Continue reading…

  • Enough is Enough

    02/12/2021 I am a huge Rocky Balboa fan. That character inspires me to keep going, no matter the odds that might be against me. Now in one of my favorite Rocky movies, Rocky II, Apollo Creed was beating him to death and he had knocked him down two times in the first two rounds. Continue reading…

  • Encouragement, Anyone?

    02/11/2021 His name was Joseph. The way he carried himself communicated to people that God was able, no matter how bleak the situation might be. His mentors noticed how encouraging Joseph was, and they changed his name to Barnabas, “which translated means, Son of Encouragement.” Continue reading…

  • Why Are My Prayers Not Being Answered?

    02/9/2021 Have you ever felt like God was just not answering your prayers? I believe one of the biggest reasons we do not see God do miraculous things in response to our prayers is simply because we do not believe that He will really answer us. Be honest: do you really believe God is going to answer when you pray? Continue reading…

  • When You Feel Like Quitting

    02/8/2021 George Mueller was a great man of faith and prayer. He once prayed for a friend’s salvation for more than sixty years. At Mueller’s funeral, that friend for whom he prayed for all those years gave his heart to Christ. Wow! It’s easy for us to look at the results of our prayers and think they aren’t working. Continue reading…

  • The Difference Maker

    02/5/2021 Daniel and his friends were in a tough spot. King Nebuchadnezzar had a troublesome dream, and he demanded that the wise men of Babylon tell him both the dream and the interpretation. And if they couldn't, all the wise men were going to be killed. Now, his demand was humanly impossible ... and Daniel and his three friends were facing certain death, since they part of the wise men of Babylon. Continue reading…

  • Prayers that Pack a Punch

    02/4/2021 Millions of people pray every day. Some pray long, and some pray short ... but lots of people who pray see little to no response to their requests. Why is that? One of the biggest reasons is this: So much of the time people pray passionless, mindless, going-through-the-motions type of prayers. Canned, mechanical prayer doesn't stir the heart of God. Continue reading…

  • Living by Faith

    02/3/2021 The Christian life is a life of faith. And faith is simply believing what God has said by taking a step on His Word. Faith always has legs on it. Hebrews 11:6 tells us, “Without faith it is impossible to please Him.” Think about the difference between faith and unbelief. Faith says to God, “I believe that You are able to make a way even when I can't see a way.” Continue reading…
