Favstar gets even better if you sign in.
Living by faith isn't living with certainty. It's trusting God in spite of unanswered questions and unresolved doubts.
Worry is a 100% waste of emotion. It cannot change the past. It will not change the future. It just ruins today.
God's Will is found in God's Word. Stop looking for a sign, and start looking for a verse.
Jesus didn't die on the Cross to be "one of the ways" or even "the best way" for us to get to heaven. "I'm THE way." Jesus
ISIS is evil.
You don't ignore evil.
You don't negotiate with evil.
Good people stop evil.
When God says "Not yet" say "I trust you." When he says "No" say "I thank you" because he has your best interest at heart.
Worry is the warning light that shows I've stopped looking to God to meet my needs.
Lust is about satisfaction. Love is sacrificing, serving, surrendering, sharing, supporting, and even suffering for others.
If God was small enough for you to completely understand him, he wouldn't be big enough for you to completely trust him.
Holy Spirit enlarge my vision, stretch my faith, and liberate me from self-imposed limitations that dishonor you.
A big error young leaders make is thinking leadership is about the leader. It's not about you. It's about serving others.
When you're small,they ignore you. When you grow,they criticize you. When you succeed,they resent you. Keep focused on God!
Having FAITH doesn't mean you have no doubts or fears.It means you trust God and do what's right in spite of your fears.
In worship, seek God, not an experience,
Faith in Jesus must be personal but it cannot be private.
While you're waiting, God's working.
Stop listening for a voice and start looking for a verse. He's already spoken.
