Do You Need a Spiritual Growth Spurt?

Do You Need a Spiritual Growth Spurt?

Have you ever thought, I need something to boost my walk with God right now?

If you have, I encourage you to consider going on a missions trip. That is one of the best ways I’ve found to get a spiritual growth spurt.

On a missions trip, you will find out a lot about yourself. You will also find out a lot about other people. You’ll even find out a lot about your organizational ability just by packing your suitcase!

Divine Love Says…

Divine Love Says…

“Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly.Continue reading

Word focus…

Word Wealth Commentary on the word “supplies”: A combination of epi, intensive, and choregeo, “to defray the expenses of a chorus.” The word thus means to supply fully or abundantly, generously provide what is needed, to cover the costs completely. It is used with the strong connotation of great and free generosity. Paul is chiding the Galatians for regressing to the beggarly elements of legalism, which he contrasts with the abounding surplus of God’s provision through grace.

Prayed…

We’re not going to regress or depend upon the arm of the flesh
Not depending upon human ingenuity but all our dependence is upon the Spirit of graceContinue reading

Praying for Godly Leaders

Praying for Godly Leaders

Job 12:13-23 — But only with God are perfect wisdom and might. He alone has true counsel and understanding. Behold, He tears down, and it cannot be built again; He shuts a man or woman in, and none can open. He  withholds the waters, and the land dries up; again, He sends forth rains, and they overwhelm the land or transform it. With Him are might and wisdom; the deceived and the deceiver are His and in His power. He leads great and scheming counselors away stripped and barefoot and makes the judges fools in human estimation, by overthrowing their plans. He looses the fetters ordered by kings and has the waistcloth of a slave bound about their own loins. He leads away priests as spoil, and men firmly seated He overturns. He deprives of speech those who are trusted and takes away the discernment and discretion of the aged. He pours contempt on princes and loosens the belt of the strong disabling them, bringing low the pride of the learned.

Job 42:2 — I know that You can do all things, and that no thought or purpose of Yours can be restrained or thwarted.

Psalm 37:1-9 — We fret not because of evildoers, neither are we envious against those who work unrighteousness that which is not upright or in right standing with God. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. We trust, lean on, rely on, and are confident in the Lord. We shall dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly we shall be fed. And He will make our uprightness and right standing with God go forth as the light, and our justice and right as the shining sun of the noonday.Continue reading
