“You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” - Matthew 7:5Over the next four days, we are going to go in greater depth on how we can eliminate a weakness, or even turn weakness into a strength. We all are going to have Achilles heels. But that does not mean we have an excuse not to work on them and learn to us...

“As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God?Psalm 18:30-31 Over the last week, we have discussed the journey you will go on if you set out to pursue the plan and purpose God has designed for your life. We started the journey talking about a promise Jesus gave in Matthew 16:...

What Is Your Rock?
by Ministry Support on December 2nd, 2021
“And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.” Matthew 16:18 Do you ever wonder what is your purpose in life? Maybe you ask yourself, “Why am I here? Why do I exist? What does God even want from me, anyway?” These are questions so many people ask themselves at one point or another. But the reality is, if you are still bre...

I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” – Isaiah 43:18-19Yesterday we talked about the idea of changing locations.

A Father To The Fatherless
by Ministry Support on June 21st, 2020
Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before him – his name is the Lord. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing, but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land. (Psalm 68:4-6) I want you to take a second and think about the Leaning Tower of ...

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13) There is a story of a tourist who was visiting a famous landmark on the ocean. During his visit, he walked out onto a pier so he could see the ocean better. But as he looked over the edge of the pier, he was disturbed by how deep the water looked.
