A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP

THE PROCESS OF CHANGE

July 29, 2021

KEEP PRESSING

July 23, 2021

As believers, we must keep pressing for the mark of the high prize of the calling in Christ Jesus. We can never stop or slow down. Instead, we must stay the course. This is a long and tedious race with roadblocks and setbacks along the way. We must have the discipline to persevere. I have…

DON’T RELY ON YOUR UNDERSTANDING

July 20, 2021

Whatever we do should always be done with prayer and guidance from the Lord. We cannot depend upon our own understanding, but we need to seek God’s wisdom. Regardless of our intellect and worldly knowledge, we still need God’s power and presence. Far too often, we try to do things on our own and find…
