Very Deep, But Very Dead - #6794
Start a spiritual diary, and in it write two things: what did I read today; what is God saying here and put it in your own words...not Bible words. And then, what am I going to do differently today because of what He said?" The Bible isn't just to be mastered. It's to be obeyed.
Wisdom To Go - #6775
The good news is you can get the discernment you need to answer in God's will. Now, pray through the major arenas, the major relationships of your day. Bathe your life in prayer, and then pause before you answer to be sure that your line to heaven is open.
Take Care of it Before the Price Goes Up - #6753
The sin bill will never be smaller than today. Victory will never be more within your reach than it is today. The cost is going up! Take care of it before the price goes up any more.
The Battle For the Transmitter - #6701
All day long you're transmitting to the people around you. Does it sound like Jesus? When you have surrendered the transmitter to Christ, then He is really in charge.
Fighting it Early - #6694
General Douglas MacArthur said, "The history of failure in war can be summed up in two words - too late. Too late in comprehending the deadly purpose of a potential enemy." Now, think about this in terms of sinful thoughts: Too late in realizing the mortal danger, too late in preparedness, too late in uniting all possible forces to resist it.
The Two-Word Tranquilizer - #6597
I can avoid so much frustration if I allow the God of heaven to be the Lord of my almighty, untouchable schedule. And I do that with two words, "Lord willing" spoken or unspoken, but consciously recognizing the sovereignty of Almighty God.
One Wall That Keeps the Sharks Away - #6553
As each new day begins, open God's Word and you apply it to your struggles, your weaknesses, your failures. I need to rebuild my biblical wall every new day. It's also vital that key verses become a part of you; part of your personality. That means committing to memory verses that directly address your "shark."
Swallowing What You Eat - #6517
Every day ask yourself the question, "What am I going to do because of what I read in the Bible?" And once you do that and start to make those changes, you are well on your way to an exciting new you; one day, one change at a time.
High Water and High Walls - #6444
Two people living for themselves, or even for each other, honestly it just isn't enough to hold back the flood. It takes two people living together for the God who loves them. Praying together often, drawing closer to each other as they draw close to Him. He's a God whose love runs strong when our love runs low. He pours out His inexhaustible, unconditional love, so we then have it to give to the one we've pledged our life to.
The Most Important Mirror in Your Life - #6285
Don't start a day without a look in your spiritual mirror. And make whatever changes that are called for that day. I think you'll be amazed at how good you'll start to look.
