Shaped by Destiny

But you are not shaped by your history, contrary to what the psychiatrists have preached.You are shaped by your destiny. You are a child of God with an eternal inheritance.

"god of this World

“Money is the “god of this world,” and it empowers millions of people to enjoy life by living on substitutes. With money, they can buy entertainment, but they can’t buy joy. They can go to the drugstore and buy sleep, but they can’t buy peace. Their money will attract lots of acquaintances but very few real friends. Wealth gains them admiration and envy but not love. It buys the best in medical services, but it can’t buy health.” 

~ Warren W. Wiersbe

Radical Obedience

Radical obedience to Christ is not easy... It's not comfort, not health, not wealth, and not prosperity in this world. Radical obedience to Christ risks losing all these things. But in the end, such risk finds its reward in Christ. And he is more than enough for us. ~ David Platt

Through Weakness & Suffering

God whispers to us through weakness, forms us through suffering, and answers our spirit’s deepest cries through the gap between ideal and real.

Long for HIM

"If you do not know Him and worship Him, if you do not long to reside where He is, if you have never known wonder and ecstasy in your soul because of His crucifixion and resurrection, your claim of Christianity has little foundation!" ~ A.W. Tozer

In our lifetime, wouldn't it be sad if we spent more time washing dishes or swatting flies or mowing the yard or watching television than praying for world missions? ~ Dave Davidson

What Do You Want Most?

The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading what you want most for what you want right now.

When we put ourselves in a position of obedience, we give God the freedom to overwhelm the natural circumstances of this life with His supernatural power. ~ Gloria Copeland

Joyful Worshipers

God is pursuing with omnipotent passion a worldwide purpose of gathering joyful worshipers for Himself from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. He has an inexhaustible enthusiasm for the supremacy of His name among the nations. Therefore, let us bring our affections into line with His, and, for the sake of His name, let us renounce the quest for worldly comforts and join His global purpose. ~ John Piper

What is Wrong?

Rather than seeing what's wrong in our lives, what's wrong in the world, and what God wants to do to fill in the gaps, we are to frequently look at what God has given us how He has blessed His gifts, and what He has already done to fill in the gaps.....We often barely notice that our glass is filling up; we focus on its remaining emptiness.

The CURE...

"If you found a cure for cancer, wouldn't it be inconceivable to hide it from the rest of mankind? How much more inconceivable to keep silent the cure from the eternal wages of death." ~ Dave Davidson

Tithing in America

My take on tithing in America is that it’s a middle-class way of robbing God. Tithing to the church and spending the rest on your family is not a Christian goal. It’s a diversion. The real issue is: How shall we use God’s trust fund—namely, all we have—for His glory? In a world with so much misery, what lifestyle should we call our people to live? What example are we setting? ~ John Piper

Stability in Him

"When you don't know what God is doing, you can find stability in who He is. The more you know about Him, the more you'll be able to hang on when life feels as if it's in the derailment mode." Beth Moore

The only reason we don’t have revival is because we are willing to live without it! ~ Leonard Ravenhill

We've taken the lifeblood out of Christianity and put Kool-Aid in its place so that it tastes better to the crowds, and the consequences are catastrophic.

Will of God

We talk much of the meek and lowly Jesus, but there were other aspects of His character. We need to recover His hatred of sin - His condemnation of whatever stood in the way of the will of God and the good of others. ~ Vance Havner
