You Are a Spiritual Life by Robert Ricciardelli

There are many ways to live one's life, but we prayerfully hope for people to come to the realization that they have been created in the image and likeness of God. We do not have to become spiritual, we are spiritual whether we know it or not. We are eternal whether we ever choose to live consciously in the eternal realm. We have been given the keys of life and have amazing power within us for good. The blessing or potential curse of being created in the image and likeness of God is that we get … [Read more...]

Nothing is Impossible With God by Robert Ricciardelli

With God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God is ever without power or impossible of fulfillment. We have imperfections that are noticeable by others and some that are unnoticeable. People around us are the same way, for we are all human beings in need of a God, and in need of His power. God does not cover up faults and flaws, and He makes it clear that there are no certain people exempt from failure or above others in their ability for righteousness. We must have faith in God and not … [Read more...]

How To Measure a Transformed Existence by Robert Ricciardelli

When our hearts have been transformed by the Spirit of Christ we see all things quite differently. We have the ability to respond to the world in ways beyond ourselves, and when we go beyond the cares of self, we want to see others set free to become healed and whole. There is a desire to become a better person, to grow in love, compassion and forgiveness. The Word of God within us urges us to grow into the likeness of Christ for which we have been created. When we actually engage in … [Read more...]

Being You For the Audience of One by Robert Ricciardelli

Believe in how much God loves you. Give God permission to love you today. Simply close your eyes and whisper, “Father, I give you permission to work in my life, and to illuminate the very best steps for me to take.” Do not worry about competing with others. Do not worry about what the rest of the pack is doing. You are an amazing creation that has been designed for great things, and designed for the glory of God that shines uniquely through you. You do not have to run faster, work harder, or be b … [Read more...]

Life of Stewardship and Not Ownership by Robert Ricciardelli

If you look at yourself as being one with God who holds the keys to life, your life becomes one of stewardship rather than ownership. Stewardship is the truest perspective for those who have entrusted themselves to their God. If you have debts, whose debt is it when you are in union with God? Whose money is it? What about the challenges you face? As stewards for the Almighty, we never have to take complete ownership of our debts, money, or challenges. Humble and faithful people of God are joint … [Read more...]

You are an Agent of the Divine by Robert Ricciardelli

You are an agent of the Divine, you are an agent for God. Through the power of God's presence, you have the opportunity to represent the loving image of God by how you live, how you love, and how you relate with others. Think of yourself as an incandescent power, an illuminated lighthouse for the works of God on earth revealing His glory. We all flow from one foundation and are filled with unlimited potential of abiding love, truth, and creativity. We must accept that the creative pulse within … [Read more...]

Passionate Self is the Seed for Glory by Robert Ricciardelli

It is God's desire for us to enjoy the life we have been given and the fruits of our labor all the days of our lives, for it is our inheritance. God has given us the power to run the uniquely designed race that He has called each of us to run. When we truly understand and embrace this, we won’t be tempted to compare or wish we had what someone else has. You won’t think, “If only I had what they had in talent or opportunity." Be thankful for what you do have, and in the power of God through you, m … [Read more...]

Summits, Self-Denial, Discipleship by Richard Dahlstrom

I AM a God of Fullness, Not Measure by Tricia Exman

We have SO many ways that we "measure", but God only has one.  Under the Old Covenant, God's Law talks about using honest scales and measures.  In the New Covenant, we are told that we will be measured by the same measure that we use.What does all that mean?I remember about 2 ½ years ago, the Lord really started talking to me about all of this.  He began to show me all the external things I had used as a measure of my value and worth before I surrendered my life to Him.  He talked to me a … [Read more...]

Shortcuts Can Often Cause a Delay by Robert Ricciardelli

Shortcuts in life are often just an illusion. Shortcuts toward authentic life often make the journey longer. If we try to circumvent our journey with God, and His designed pathways for learning, growth, and maturity, we may cause a destiny delay. There aren't many actual shortcuts anyway, and direct paths usually work best. Most people don't like to take the direct and often illuminated path because of fear, or because it seems to be too difficult, therefore desiring an easier road. This gives … [Read more...]
