Jesus is God

As you grow and mature in the Christian faith, it is important to revisit foundational truths.
One of the essential truths is Jesus is God. Jesus’ marvelous works, unmatched knowledge, and His attributes reflect He is God. The second in the Godhead, and that He and the Father are One. Learn to see Jesus in His fullness not only as the Son of God and Savior but also as the King of kings.

God Affirms Me

Today, I feel torn, worn, and weary. There is a grave responsibility being placed on my shoulders and I have a feeling it is one of many this year. I can give into my fears or stand firmly in the truth of God and how He cares for us. I encourage you to resist the urge to be afraid, relying completely upon His know how, which will show me how.

Taking a Stand Against Self Pity

It’s one thing to say you will not complain, it is a whole another level to stand against self pity, especially when life is not going your way. We can always find something to complain about, but can you challenge yourself and list ten blessings in an effort to praise God, even when it hurts?

Stop Making a Monster out of God

After experiencing a major disappointment, job loss, break up, or getting bad news about your health from the doctor it is normal to experience an onslaught of negative and mixed emotions. However, God did not create us to live in the darkness and anguish of our circumstances. Through Jesus Christ we’re presented with two choices, either to rise above emotions and situations through faith or to indulge the problem, feeding its power over us. How we handle, speaks volumes about character. Our response to our misfortunes will lead to acceptance and problem solving, or the dark rabbit hole of self pity. Self pity is a deceitful monster. If we become so focused on our terrible circumstances, we begin to make a monster out of God. Our hole of darkness traps us in misery, separating us from the way of escape.
