No one knows what facing one difficult battle after another feels like, more than our beloved war general Joshua. His whole life was characterized by challenges, struggles and endless battles.

CREDIT | F.B. Meyer on Elijah The year is 2020. We are back to this very moment my reader. The tide is running strongly against the truth of God in our generation.

WHAT IS GOD LOOKING FOR?

He is looking for men and women whose hearts are completely His–completely. He is certainly not looking for perfect people, since there are none. But He is searching for men and women with these three specific things (taken directly out of Chuck Swindoll’s book David: A Man of Passion and Destiny) I.

OF WHAT VALUE IS AN IDOL?

Of what value is an idol, since a man has carved it? Or an image that teaches lies? For he who makes it trusts in his own creation; he makes idols that cannot speak.

You’ve got to keep going for now. Your part in His kingdom is needed ~

I was inspired by this one line from one of Ann Voskamp’s devotion (A Letter for the Long Haul) that showed up in my inbox just when I seemed to really need just this kind of encouragement. It is easy to underestimate our part in the Kingdom, yet if we each played our role (noContinue reading “You’ve got to keep going for now. Your part in His kingdom is needed ~”

7 Reasons Why You Should Intentionally Invest in your Child’s Spiritual Growth

Satan does not attack a Christian who is living near God. It is when the Christian departs from God, becomes spiritually starved, and begins to feed on lies that the devil discovers his moment of advantage.
