The Great Lie

12 Sep

The great lie of this broken universe is that God cannot be trusted and that we have to take care of ourselves. That’s the lie that snagged Eve. The serpent convinced her that because God had ulterior motives, she couldn’t trust what he said… Our worst moments result from grabbing for ourselves that which Father has not given us.

What Do You Need?

1 Mar

John: “Is there anything you lack to get through this day?”
John: “I need a job. I need a way to pay this bill.”…
John: “Or you need the confidence that your Father already knows those things and loves you enough to sort them out with you. You have all that you need today; you just don’t yet have all you need to the end of the month. But that’s still a ways off… Just keep coming to him and watch what he will do. He’s the Father who knows you better than you know yourself and even loves you more than you love yourself. Ask him to help you see how much he loves you. That will make all the difference.”

God Our Provider

9 Feb

There is nothing that distorts ministry more than believing you have to make a living by it. So much of our life in Christ today is corrupted because people want to use ministry to secure their income…. Until you are free to trust God to provide for you, Jake, he will not entrust his people to you. Just don’t think you’re the one doing the providing. Get this lesson, Jake. Living in the freedom of God’s provision is critical to what God has for you.
