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.
Charlie Brown Valentines
In those moments when I wondered if the love of my life would be here tomorrow, I had an anchor. From someone who has promised me, "I will never leave you or forsake you." Someone who has never broken a promise. Someone who backed up His promise with His life.
So Many Promises - #6760
You can plant both your feet on God's promises and know He will deliver. He has no unforeseen circumstances. He cannot lie. And nothing is too hard for the Lord.
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.
Jewish Sandals - #6666
Look around you. I'll bet somewhere God is meeting your need through a miracle of manna right now; just a miraculous, out-of-nowhere provision. But I'll bet somewhere you've got the modern equivalent of those Jewish sandals. Either way, every need is supplied. You're living hand-to-mouth; His hand to your mouth. Wow! Are you secure!
A Paper Bridge - #6654
Give God a chance to take that relationship and mend it again, using that letter as a beginning, because that relationship's going to be a part of you wherever you go.
Custom Tailoring For the Fit You Need - #6623
God gives grace customized for every experience that He sends or He allows in your life. There is dying grace; you say, "I don't know how I would ever handle dying." Well, of course, you're not doing it now; you don't need it now. But haven't you seen people with dying grace? You get it when you need it.
When Plaques Turn to Life Preservers - #6579
When your feelings are lying to you, when your world is upside down, grab a promise off the wall of your heart and rest all your weight on it. The promises of God are life preservers.
If You Rush It, You Ruin It - #6549
Make it a goal to not find your fingerprints on your future. Only one set of prints - God's. See, your involvement could well become interference. Would you let God finish His masterpiece in His time? For He promises in Ecclesiastes, "He makes everything beautiful in it's time." Impatience can, as young cooks often learn, ruin the final result.
When You Can't See the Way to Go - #6220
The "don't know" times are God's instrument to drive you deeper into Him, to surrender all self-reliance for a desperate dependency on Him. You may not know which way to go, but you don't have to stand there fearful, paralyzed or marching in circles. Your Lord, your Shepherd is placing His arm inside yours to lead you where you could never go without Him.
