Wide-eyed Anticipation of Revealed Truth by Robert Ricciardelli

"Searching for truth is not comfortable while leading us to great comfort. We must not fear truth or deluded authorities that stand in the way of it. Like a child we must remain wide-eyed, curious, and always anticipating its arrival. The treasure of Truth stands alone, does not need approval, and will prevail no matter how man times ignorance tries to derail it. Facts can obscure the truth. Facts can reveal a challenging world while truth presents a God who takes you through every … [Read more...]

“Hey, Just Exactly Who’s in Charge Here?” by James Ryle

“God prodded Cyrus” (Ezra 1:1, The Message).Obviously, God is in charge; always has been, always will be. It is He who prods the kings of this world to do His will.

Vision Can Only Succeed by Alignment by Graham Cooke

We do not get a vision by ourselves and ask God to breathe on it. We worship, pray, meditate and listen to His heart. A vision that is rational, logical and based on what we can reasonably accomplish given our numbers and resources… will ultimately not upgrade anyone involved in the enterprise.The Father has a vision for us personally and corporately. What does He see? Dreams, visions, scripture and prophecy are the seedbed for a vision that comes from another dimension. We cannot open o … [Read more...]

“Just Do It” by Alan Smith

Nike thought they originated the phrase “Do It”; but the Bible beat them to it.1 Chron. 28:20: "And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the LORD God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD."King David knew what it meant to “do it” when he was “strong” and had “good courage” that came from heaven.

Father’s Words by Dudley Hall

As we look at the life of Jesus, the Son incarnate, we see that he lived life at its very best on earth by submitting … [Read more...]

Fear Grips the World by Gerald Chester

The events of this past month revealed that sin has consequences—bad consequences. Imprudent debt at every level—personal, business, and sovereign governments—is proving to be disastrous. The genesis of this seemingly unrestrained use of debt is Keynesian economics, which has been embraced by most of the world over the past century.Though Scripture does not forbid debt, it warns against debt. Debt is bondage because the borrower becomes the servant of the lender (Proverbs 22:7). Debt is also … [Read more...]

Making Choices For Excellence by Robert Ricciardelli

"There comes a time in your spiritual journey when you start making consistent choices that embody truth, wisdom, and love. To make a choice means that there is more than one path to choose, and often times the only reward you will get for choosing the easiest path is that it was the easiest way to go. Excellence does not come from one good choice but from a habit of good choices. Choices eventually show more of who you are than your talents and abilities. Choose well in knowing that you become … [Read more...]
