Welcome again to this week's word for the week. John 10:10 is a simple but yet powerful verse. In practical terms it says the thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy us while Jesus came that we could not only have life but have it abundantly. While that sounds like a simple verse the question is what does that mean to you? When you read that what exactly do you see? What does it say that you may be missing? Let's go further here.
There is nothing complicated about the verse. However, we need to realize that the verse also points to an awareness we must have. This is not going to be easy if we pay attention. There is an enemy after us and his purpose is to steal from us, to kill us, and destroy us. While that may be his purpose we ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. It is so easy to get distracted. That is something most people don't want to discuss. Regardless, it's a true statement. It's very easy to get distracted in life. This is something that can be avoided but it takes much prayer, fasting, focus, and a commitment to God. There has to be something in you that's determined to not miss what God has for you. It's easy to be distracted.
Distractions are simple. Anything that gets in the way of what you're trying to do is a distraction. Some can be controlled but we have to have a willingness to control them. You can control the volume on your tv while you're praying. There's no reason at all for you not to be in a ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. One of the most difficult times in your life is not when everything is going bad. It's not when it seems like it's one thing after another. One of the most difficult times in your life is when God is doing something that will change you beyond your control. This may sound easy but the reality is that it is difficult. It's difficult because we put so much time into becoming who we are rather that's good or bad. Let's go further.
When God is getting ready to do a spiritual makeover in you it can hurt. It doesn't hurt your spirit. It hurts your flesh and ego. It hurts because you suddenly find yourself being driven into what is the unknown for you at the moment. The ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. What would you give up for God? Give that some real thought. Now let me ask that question again. What would you give up for God? If you say everything do you know what everything may be? If you are hesitant do you realize what you may be missing out on? If you say you don't know then the question could be asked do you realize how much He has given up for you?
All of these questions point to something simple if you don't over think the question. What comes down to is that you would need to count the cost. Too often we blurt out things without thinking what that might mean. We say yes without thinking about what that yes will mean. Make sure you understand me clearly here. I'm ...
