Someone Else Shuts the Door - #6832
Today the door is open! God paid with the blood of His Son for you to go to heaven, but you've got to come while He's calling. You can meet Jesus at His cross today. He's been waiting for you there.
When Conquerors Wimp Out - #6817
Ask God for the courage to confront, even when you're young, even when you're single. Deal with issues while they're small. Face the conflict; don't try to bury it. When a conqueror on the battlefront learns to be a confronter on the home front, then he's really being a man.
A Chapter At a Time - #6811
God wants to build trust in Him in a day-to-day relationship. And so He shows us the story a little at a time. Like Abraham, your mission is to take the step He shows you today from His Word; not to worry about the whole big picture.
The Antidote For Loneliness - #6809
Being single doesn't mean being alone if you'll invest in those life partnerships and not just sit there saying, "Oh, when am I going to be married?" Take encouragement from this, that the God who made you need people - will give you the people you need.
Just the Two of Us - #6808
I noticed my wife's beauty and wisdom the most when there was no one else around. Well, it's the same in a relationship with the Lord Jesus. When it's just the two of you, maybe like it is right now, you can see Him as you've never seen Him before.
Calling Off the Pity Party - #6786
Jesus told us that we would find our life - not by looking for it, not by hanging onto it - by giving it away, He said. Not because you feel like it, but because Jesus lived like that, and because you know that's where to find light at the end of your own personal tunnel. Remember, even when you get home tonight, ask yourself the question, "So, who needs me here right now?"
The Mating Game - #6785
There's a wonderful statement in Colossians 2:10 for all of us who belong to Jesus. It says, "You are complete in Him." Wow! Married or single, alone or with lots of people, you are complete in Him, and Jesus is enough.
Get There-itis - #6714
I like Warren Wiersbe's definition of faith. He said, "Faith is the absence of scheming." Are you about to make something happen where you should be waiting for it to happen? The time isn't right yet even though it seems late to you. You're about to pull a Hagar; a tragic hurry-up of God's plans.
Hard Rescues - #6640
Don't force God to escalate His rescue efforts. There's no peace, there's no rest, there's no fulfillment until you collapse into His arms. Let Him carry you safely home. Don't be a hard rescue!
The Pace Car in Every Race - #6615
If Adam isn't right, the garden isn't right either. There's stress, conflict, confusion, decisions not made if the man who is supposed to be leading isn't doing it. Think about it today if you happen to be on Adam's side of the human race. Could some of your frustrations be because you've been neglecting your God-given responsibilities to your wife, to your children, or to be the spiritual leader?
