Believe you WILL receive.

Matthew 21:20 And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, “How did the fig tree wither away so soon?”21 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and […]

From Head to Heart

We read these scriptures but we don’t internalize them. We know them by heart but we don’t always believe them for everything in our life. We restrict God in the areas that are more difficult. I myself am guilty. I can easily find myself meditating on the problem. Thank God I have an amazing wife […]

Made Known

Luke 12:2 2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Matthew 10:26 So do not be afraid of them. For there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, and nothing hidden that will not be made known. Mark 4:22 For there is nothing hidden […]

Measured response.

James 4 6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” I learned about mercy and grace about three or so years ago. If you want grace and mercy for your own mistakes, you pray for grace and mercy for others around you. Matthew 7:2 […]

A Measured Response

James 2 10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. 12 […]

Bear Fruit

Luke 13 13 There were present at that season some who told Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had [a]mingled with their sacrifices. 2 And Jesus answered and said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? 3 I tell you, no; […]

It’s just food.

Romans 14 14 I know and am convinced by the Lord Jesus that there is nothing unclean of itself; but to him who considers anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean. 15 Yet if your brother is grieved because of your food, you are no longer walking in love. Do not destroy with […]

I’m using the biggest measuring cup I can find.

Romans 14 12 So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. 13 Therefore let us not judge one another [d]anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way. You will not be able to point to someone else when you […]

Praying as a group.

Matthew 18 19 “Again[d] I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” I know people […]

Seek First the Kingdom

Romans 8 12 Therefore, brothers and sisters we have an obligation – but not in the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.” New King James: 12 […]
