Our relationship with God and others is very precious. The enemy likes to destroy our relationships with our husband and others (sisters, brothers, mom, dad, friends). Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Sacrifice: to give up something (that you want to keep) especially in order to get or do something else or to help someone; an act of giving up something especially for the sake of someone or something else. I Chronicles 21:1-4 And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel. And David […]
Bless: to kneel with face on the ground in total respect and worship. We need to worship God with all our heart at all times. Psalm 103:1 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. David wrote many of the psalms of praise but he didn’t have […]
God is testing our attitude when we’re afflicted. We are in charge of how we react and of our attitude. Psalm 119:75 I know, O Lord, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me. When we’re afflicted, it takes effort to keep a good attitude. God chose to refine us […]

Doubt questions but faith gives answers. Peter walked on the water while he kept his eyes on Jesus. He started to sink when he looked at the waves around him. We’ll […]
When fear comes and we’re afraid, we have to trust in the Lord. Psalm 56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. Fear: anxiety, worry, concern because of the presence of danger or uncertainty about our safety.
The heart is deceitful so we can’t trust our heart. We have to trust in the Lord, not in how we feel or what we see. Jeremiah 17:5-10 Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. For he shall […]
For some Christmas is a happy time. This is also the time of year when there’s more depression and suicide. People that have losses have grief.

God has two kinds of will: a sovereign will and a will of command. Sovereign will: having supreme authority or power over everything as the creator of the universe. God’s sovereign will has nothing to do with our will. I Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in […]
