believe god

The life story of Abraham is a real example of faith, hope and trust. I would like to recommend the reading of the whole story of this man of faith’s life to you. It is so encouraging to me in my own life to see how he lived and trusted God in so many of life’s situations, good times and hard times alike. Just like with us today, sometimes it was easy to trust more

little children

The Bible often speaks of believers as being children. It says that we must come to God as children. Have you noticed the way that children come to their fathers?

But, what many do not realize more

trust in trying times

Do you ever feel like one of those little ducks at a shooting gallery? It seems that you are in a vicious cycle going round and round, and every time you get back up, there is someone trying to shoot you down again. Well, I know exactly what you are talking about.

the making of a champion

Man, oh man, what a great greeting Gideon just got. And this was not just any old angel that spoke to him either. When you see the term "angel of the Lord" written like this, it is speaking of a pre-incarnate visit from Jesus Himself. The amazing thing about this is that Gideon was out slinking around in the darkness trying to find some food for his family. He was using the cover of more

all things?

A half full glass seems better than a half empty glass doesn’ more
