You have to wake up and choose to live every day for God. You have to choose being successful in God’s eyes instead of society’s. You have to choose to live your life in light of eternity.
When we long to achieve greatness for our own fame and reputation, we load onto our shoulders a weight only God can bear.
Jesus is coming back in all his glory, lovesick for those who have been brought into his fold by faith. You see, he’s coming back for you because he loves you. He longs for the day when you can be with him, face to face, held back by nothing.
One of the most pervasive themes in Scripture is freedom. Its pages are filled with stories of God delivering his people from bondage.
You aren't meant to live with the weight of doing life on your own.
Scripture admonishes us to engage in confession, community, worship, and spiritual battle together.
Sin stood between us and God like a great chasm separating a wanderer from an oasis; and so great was the Father’s love for us that he sent his only Son that we might be justly forgiven.
Take some time today to practice the incredible discipline of solitude. Be patient with yourself. Be patient with God.
God does speak through circumstances and his word, but he also loves to speak directly to his children. He longs to be in conversation with us.
Live in light of eternity today. Worship here as you will in heaven, and watch as heaven invades earth around you with the glory and love of God.
It’s because of his continued love for us that he forgives us the very moment we repent of our sin. There’s no price to pay. There’s no time we have to spend outside of his perfect love. Jesus paid the price for every sin you and I will ever commit.
We long to be loved for who we truly are, but we've also been burned by others in an attempt to find acceptance.
All of us have insatiable longings that can only be satisfied in communion with our heavenly Father.
We see from Jesus' example that time alone with God empowers us to carry out God’s purpose for our life. It was after withdrawing into the wilderness in Luke 4 that he began performing miracles.
Take time in guided prayer to experience union with God. Ask him to reveal his nearness that you might know him in deeper, more tangible ways.
To be strengthened by the mighty hand of God is to stop living in your own strength and instead wholly rely on his. God longs to “do far more abundantly than all [you] ask or think” if you will lean into him for his love, power, and guidance.
In his life, death, and resurrection, Jesus built a bridge between us and God allowing us to have continual, unhindered communion with our Creator. But God can’t force us into nearness with him.
Even in moments of weakness, your heavenly Father loves you. Even in moments where you would condemn yourself, your Father delights in showing mercy.
Having vision for eternity should lead us to create boundaries around everything in this life. It should lead us to a lifestyle of surrender that our hearts might never become tied to that which is fleeting and can never fully satisfy.
Your ability to meet with God is as simple as turning your attention toward him and allowing yourself to be known.
There is nothing in this world like experiencing the unconditional love of God. His love extends farther than the width of the skies. His love goes deeper than the deepest sea. His love is more powerful than a raging fire, and it is closer than the heartbeat within your chest.
The truth God has for us today is simply this: sanctification comes about by true relationship with our heavenly Father alone.
If we are ever going to experience the wealth of glorious inheritance God has for us, we must learn to trust him and obey.
To live in secrecy before God, man, and yourself is to live in darkness. We are made to be fully known.
To live in the light is to center our lives wholly around its only true source: Jesus.
Take time today to allow the truth of God’s love and Jesus’ life to make its way into every part of your life.
One of the most powerful marks of a believer is transcendent peace.
If we’re going to truly center our lives around meeting with God, we must learn to acknowledge the fact that he is already with us.
When we seek all the blessings God has to give such as being loved, being known, being provided for, and being filled with the Spirit, we can know that we will find what we seek.
Jesus said that all of God’s commandments can be summed up with one word: love.
