That is what Christ promises to do. In fact, He has already begun doing it. And He never leaves anything unfinished. His grace is too potent to leave a person without absolute hope that every single one of those promises will come to completion.
We are supposed to forget what is behind us, live in the now, and look toward our future. But, how often do we find ourselves living in the past, looking at the now, and forgetting we have a future? Yes, we live in past hurts, past failures, and past disappointments. You are not there any more so why do you keep living in it? We look at our present finances, our present understanding, and our present spirituality. Stop looking at where you are now, it is only temporary. We forget we have a future destiny, future relationships, and future blessings. These are things to come so, you should always be hopeful and full of faith that things will get better. Lord, help us to change our perspective and put everything in its rightful place, in our lives. Whether it was our past, is our present, or will be our future-…

One of the greatest gifts of grace that you have when you trust in Christ is the assurance of hope. What is the hope we are assured of? We are assured that God is a God who keeps all His promises. When God makes a promise He keeps it. Psalm 146:6 (NLT) says, He keeps every […]
Christian dating should be a positive, validating experience. If it’s not, then it isn’t from The Lord. The Bible says that God is the giver of every good and perfect gift.

Then they moved on from Bethel. While they were still some distance from Ephrath, Rachel began to give birth and had great difficulty. And as she was having great difficulty in childbirth, the midwife said to her, “Don’t be afraid, for you have another son.” As she breathed her last – for she was dying – she named her son Ben-Oni. But his father named him Benjamin.
Change is never easy. I wish it were. Sometimes it’s like we’re dying to ourselves. Psychologists say that when change takes place there’s a grieving process that we must go through.
We can’t stop change from happening. The only thing we have control over is our attitude. It’s how we deal with…

I was reading today about stepping out in faith. Sometimes easier said than done but it is amazing how God provides for people. I was given a book to read this week with a strange title – Two Pork Chops, but in it the author is telling of a number of miracles that happened in his life including the provision of two pork chop dinners (found frozen and covered in foil in a hedgerow!) when he was working for God in faith. If God says to us, do this work, he will provide, we know his plans are even greater than we can imagine, the question is are we strong and bold enough to do what he asks us to do?
