Eagle in Flight - Believing the truthBelieving the truth, God’s truth, is the active power of our new life. It is the Lord’s grace-based way of giving wings to our new life of faith. All Christians will tell you that they believe in Jesus. But have we been “blinded” by the light? The all-important issue of believing doesn’t end there. The demons also believe that the Father and Jesus exist, but they take no joy or peace in believing it, nor do they live yielded to Him in trust and obedience.

Since we are saved by grace through faith, it is entirely by means of faith that we are meant to access all that grace so freely supplies.  For instance, God’s Word says that we who believe can be filled with all joy and peace “in believing.”  If this is not what you are experiencing all day long, then perhaps there are a few things you still need to learn about recognizing and overcoming the stronghold of unbelief which may be quenching your faith.

You Have the Power

Remember how King David encouraged himself in the Lord after the disaster at Ziklag? I figured that if it worked for him, it could work for me.…

What is the Problem?

What is the Problem? We all know there is a problem, but it’s not what you might think… The problem is: Not you Not God Not others Not the world Not your flesh Not the devil Not your sin Not your past Not your circumstances Not your weaknesses Not your ‘personality’ Not your addiction Since we are being “saved by grace through faith” by the most outrageously grace-giving Being in the Universe, who has thoroughly covered our sins and utterly defeated the…

Truth or Consequences

Truth or Consequences

We live in a real world that is also a moral and spiritual universe. Every thought, word and deed whether good or bad, right or wrong, intended or unintended, has consequences in our lives and in the lives that surround us. Blessings—the positive consequences—abound whenever we consciously or unconsciously “do the right thing.” The “curse of the law”—the negative consequences—arrive when we depart from God’s way or God’s truth (Deuteronomy 27-28). The “Valley of Decision” we face is not just a onetime choice to follow…
