Topics: , , , ,

It’s easy to “say” we would follow God anywhere, but it’s a whole different story when He actually calls us to step out into the complete unknown and follow Him by faith without having a clue how things are going to turn out. Doing so requires us to relinquish control of our lives and trust that whatever God brings about is ultimately best. Are you willing to trust God that way?

The Glorious Future That Awaits You!

Date: June 16, 2024 | Speaker:

What gives you certainty in such an uncertain world? How do you keep your fire for God alive when weariness or doubt set in? The Bible paints a vivid picture of a day when Christ will return to eradicate evil and rescue His people. Until then, we must live in this broken world, and the waiting can leave us weary and discouraged. Yet, no matter how dark things seem now, this glorious future is the certainty that inspires us to persevere, remain passionate for God, and find joy in knowing that we will be with Him forever. All tears will be wiped away, and all things will be made new. This is the promise that should fuel an unshakable hope in the heart of every believer!

Escaping the Trap of Empty Religion

Date: June 9, 2024 | Speaker:

Have you ever found yourself going through the motions of Christianity without truly engaging your heart? Our relationship with God can easily turn into empty routines and religious rituals, so we must guard against this subtle danger. God desires our spiritual service to flow from a vibrant relationship with Him, not from forced habits or the need to keep up appearances. When the world sees God’s truth, mercy, and love radiating through us, they will be drawn to Him. Take a moment today to reflect on why you do what you do for God. Make sure you can honestly say, “Lord, I’m doing it all for you!”

God’s Promise of Love and Restoration

Date: May 26, 2024 | Speaker:

In this world, we can never be entirely certain that those who profess to love us will remain by our side during our darkest moments of failure and sin. Past experiences have left us guarded and skeptical, doubting that unwavering, unfaltering love truly exists. To make matters worse, Satan continuously tries to convince us that we’re unworthy of love. Thankfully, we have one friend who has never abandoned anyone and has promised to love us despite our shortcomings. He is the very life within us, a wall of protection around us, and the hope we have for today and for all eternity. Do you know this one true friend?

Persevering When it Seems Pointless

Date: May 19, 2024 | Speaker:

You’ve been laboring diligently for God, but the results don’t seem as impressive as you’d hoped. Maybe your service, your ministry, your attempts to live for God feel small and insignificant compared to others or your own past experiences, leaving you asking, “Was God ever in this? Is He truly with me?” Don’t be discouraged. God has not abandoned you. Even if your efforts for Him seem trivial, they will never be in vain! God can do immeasurably more than you can imagine even through the smallest act of obedience, so remain faithful and leave the results to Him.

Overcoming Spiritual Complacency

Date: May 12, 2024 | Speaker:

One of the great dangers of the Christian life is not that we will suddenly decide to hate God, but rather, that we will slowly grow cold towards Him as time goes by. The cares and pursuits of this world can diminish our passion for God little by little until it is nothing more than a dying ember. Perhaps you’ve unintentionally drifted from your first love and now your life feels empty and aimless. Ask the Spirit of God to stir the fire in you and make the Lord your greatest treasure once again. When you value Him above all else, your heart and priorities will naturally follow, leading you back to the only source of true fulfillment, and giving your life the meaning and direction you long for!

God can work in surprising ways to accomplish His purposes in your life. Just as He stirred the heart of a pagan king to release the Israelites from exile, God can use unexpected people and circumstances to move on your behalf. Regardless of the opposition or obstacles that stand in your way, take heart knowing that no barrier is too great for our God to overcome! Even what seems like chaos is orchestrated by God’s unseen hand. When problems or discouragement arise, trust in God’s faithfulness and power, knowing that He can do the impossible!
