It is easy to feel that God’s commands limit us, but when we submit ourselves to his Word we will find true freedom.
Here’s the problem: as long as we insist that we have all the answers, we won’t be able to learn anything new.
Don’t let your failures and mistakes make you hide from God. You have nothing to fear, for his first response is always to forgive.
Here’s a thought: maybe we often fail to hear the voice of God not because he isn’t speaking clearly but because we’re unable to recognize him?
What you are waiting for reveals what (or whom) you are counting on to turn things around. What are you waiting for?
“Sin no more” is not a sentence of judgment but of hope. The hope that we can leave the past behind and pursue the abundant life Jesus dreams for us.
The danger of hiding our anger from God is that in our polite dishonesty we are hiding the very part of us that he wants to heal.
When we are passing through a difficult place it is easy to feel panicked; to fear the unknown. Psalm 23 gives us the key to being fearless.
How different would our world be if Christians were known for how they listened and not for what they said? James 1:19 teaches us that we can train ourselves to be slow to speak.
If we do any “spiritual activity” to win people’s applause, we have missed the point and will not receive the reward of God’s presence because we weren’t even looking for it in the first place.
Life has seasons, and not all of them are for producing fruit. Don’t be angry with yourself if you’re not seeing the “results” you want at this moment. If you are healthy, the results will come in their season.
These are humbling words. To be able to say “lead me” we need to recognize that we don’t know the way.
Jesus doesn’t invite us to pray to a far-off, impersonal God but to our Father. When we understand this it will change the way we pray.
Breath prayer, a combination of prayer, meditation and controlled breathing, is very simple and can have a deep impact on your spirituality.
