Don’t let your mind outthink your heart. Listen to God over logic.

Sometimes things make sense in your mind, but they don’t make sense in your heart. Sometimes logic tells us certain decisions seem right, but we feel unsettled inside. That’s God speaking to us.

God is your source. Go to your source.

God is our helper. “So we may boldly say: ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. …” (Hebrews 13:6, NKJV) God is our friend. “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I…

When these things happen, the immediate…

Sunday isn’t enough.

Sunday isn’t enough. Church on Sunday just isn’t enough to live a strong Christian life. You have to make prayer a daily habit. You have to make reading the Bible a daily habit. You have to make prayer not only a daily habit, but an ongoing conversation throughout the day. Prayer isn’t a box to…

Get rid of worry.

The moment a worry-filled thought comes into your mind – kill it. A fire dies when there is no oxygen for it to feed off of. Kill the oxygen of a worry the moment it comes into your mind to rid yourself of it. How? Redirect your thoughts the moment that a worry comes into…
