Why Do I Have So Many Problems?
by Ministry Support on November 7th, 2022
“He lets me rest in green meadows; He leads me beside peaceful streams.” - Psalm 23:2  Over the past week, we have covered the function of the gate mentioned in John 10. Jesus is the gate, and as the gate, He offers us access to solutions and safety. The last function of the door referenced in John 10 is to lead the sheep into a corral to graze and lie down in green pastures. This is the imagery t...  Read More

It Takes Humility
by Ministry Support on October 11th, 2022
“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” - 2 Chronicles 7:14  Yesterday, we uncovered how as a child of God, we are “His people.” We were chosen by Him. That is amazing to think about, but that also comes with a responsibility. The verse...  Read More

Not Yet
by Ministry Support on October 9th, 2022
“I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and He turned to me and heard my cry.” - Psalm 40:1  Sometimes, we must wait on God. As we mentioned yesterday, there is power in prayer. God wants us to go to Him with every thought, worry, or concern we have. Nothing is too small. If you care about it, He cares about it.  You might be saying, “But pastor, I have prayed to God. I have given Him my requ...  Read More

Give It Up
by Ministry Support on October 3rd, 2022
“Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away.” - Acts 3:19  It’s time for a shift. I pray that you are ready for God to lead you into this next season to do all that He has called you to do. Now is the time. He is ready. The question is, are you?  Sometimes the only thing delaying us from the promises and blessings of God is us. More specifically, we are delayed by...  Read More

Blessed To Be A Blessing
by Ministry Support on July 25th, 2022
“I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others.” - Genesis 12:2Scripture is filled with countless examples of God blessing those who were obedient to Him. Yes, God promised blessings in Scripture, but Jesus was not a self-help guru who wanted to teach us how to capitalize for carnal gain.  In the Bible, the goal of being blessed was...  Read More

Eliminating Fear
by Ministry Support on April 14th, 2022
“He also said to him, ‘I am the Lord, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land to take possession of it.’” - Genesis 15: 7As we continue to look at the process of waiting on God, we want to focus on the things we can do while we are waiting for God to do what only He can do. Yesterday, we talked about remaining open to His Word. The next thing we want to focus on is how to ...  Read More

Recognize What You Still Have
by Ministry Support on January 29th, 2022
“Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him; I will surely defend my ways to his face.”Job 13:15  The book of Job is a relatively popular book of the Bible because it highlights not only the damage and destruction that Job faces, but also the recovery and restoration that follows.   In one day, Job receives news that his livestock, servants, and ten children have all died due to invaders and natura...  Read More

Constant Comparison Disorder
by Ministry Support on January 24th, 2022
“Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else.” - Galatians 6:4-6  Comparison can breed discontentment and ingratitude if we are not careful. I once heard a story about a woman who had a difficult pregnancy and gave birth at 32 weeks. Her baby was healthy, and she was proud of herself for making it through the pa...  Read More

Don’t Forget Why You’re Here
by Ministry Support on January 15th, 2022
“Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day.” - Deuteronomy 8:11  I once heard a story about a gentleman who went to a training conference where a course was being taught on how to improve your memory. He spent nearly $200 on the books, tapes and worksheets for the course and brought it home. When he ...  Read More

Accessing God’s Blessings
by Ministry Support on December 17th, 2021
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” - Jeremiah 17:7-8  Over the last five days we have talked about the blessings readily available to those...  Read More

God’s Blessing: Reward
by Ministry Support on December 16th, 2021
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” - Colossians 3:23-24  God the Son has blessed us with redemption, reconciliation, and revelation. He has also blessed us with responsibility. When we act accordingly with that respons...  Read More

God’s Blessing of Responsibility

Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” - 1 Corinthians 15:58  Over the last three days, we have talked about the blessings of redemption, reconciliation, and revelation.

God’s Blessing Of Revelation
by Ministry Support on December 14th, 2021
“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.” - Deuteronomy 29:29  As we have highlighted over the last couple days, God gives us the blessings of redemption and reconciliation.

God’s Blessing Of Reconciliation
by Ministry Support on December 13th, 2021
“All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed us to the message of reconciliation.” - 2 Corinthians 5:18-19  God has not only blessed us with redemption, as we spoke about yesterday, but God also blessed us with reco...  Read More

God’s Blessing Of Redemption
by Ministry Support on December 12th, 2021
“While we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.” - Titus 2:13-14  When it comes to remembering the blessings God has given us, we must go beyond the physical and material gifts that are within our real...  Read More

Chosen, Adopted, Accepted.
by Ministry Support on December 11th, 2021
“He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will.” - Ephesians 1:5  Modern Christianity has tainted people’s understanding of reality and Christian faith so much that they reduce Christianity to living the American dream, being personally successful, accumulating wealth and riches. But none of those things are why Jesus died on the cross. Wo...  Read More

What Blessings Have You Forgotten?
by Ministry Support on December 10th, 2021
“Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day.” - Deuteronomy 8:11  When it comes to counting your blessings, it is easy to think about the physical things you can see—the people God has surrounded you with, the place you live, the car you drive, the clothes you wear. We live a world where “flexing” wha...  Read More

Start The Year With Gratitude
by Ministry Support on December 31st, 2020
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)  There is a subtle distinction in this text when it comes to giving thanks that I believe is very significant. The command is not to simply “be” thankful—that’s an attitude. It is to “give” thanks—that’s an action. Professor Johannes A. Gaertner said: “to speak thankfulness is courteous and ple...  Read More

Stuck In The Past
by Ministry Support on October 16th, 2020
The Samaritan woman said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew, ask a drink of me, a woman of Samaria?” – John 4:9  If you want to rebound from brokenness, you can’t let your hurt hinder your healing. So many people miss the blessings God has for them because they allow their brokenness to keep them in bondage. It’s as if they have PTSD, and struggle to move forward in their future because they are s...  Read More

Wait With Great Expectation
by Ministry Support on January 8th, 2020
“Restore our fortunes, Lord, like streams in the Negev.” – Psalm 126:4There is so much we can learn from this short verse in the middle of Psalm 126. In verse four, the psalmist is asking God to bring greater deliverance than anything the Israelites have already experienced, just like He fills the streams in Negev – the dry, parched desert in the south of the land – with massive amounts of water. ...  Read More
