Do you realize that your Christian life is a spiritual battle? How are we to go about fighting in it? What are the tools and tactics for this war? In light of the stakes, we must be clear on this.
Amid our anxiety, doubts and fears we are bidden to be still and know that God is God. In our stillness we lay our heads down upon the pillow of God’s promises.
God uses the occasion of one of the most disturbing texts of the Bible to lift people’s chins to see his big-picture plan to save the nations through Christ.
Sometimes it’s the little things, the small details, that hit the high notes of our praise.
Consider the beautiful irony of this. The King of kings, whose deeds are worthy of being proclaimed among the nations, he remembers the weak. He never forgets. His mind is a veritable steel-trap
One of the ways we know we are living a Spirit-led life is if we see evidence that it is a sin-killing life.
Have you considered that your actions can hinder your greatest blessing?
Have you compartmentalized your spiritual life to simply public assemblies? The pattern in the Psalms is both public and private devotions.
How do you handle criticism? We are often quick to exonerate rather than examine ourselves. The biblical pattern is less self-defending and more self-examining.
Each day we rest our weary, restless heads down upon the pillow of God’s promises and are met with the soothing comfort of God.
