Welcome again to this week's word for the week. The roadmap for your life is predetermined by God. All you have to do is follow the instructions. Jeremiah 29:11 says that God knows the thoughts and plans that He has in store for us. Again, all we have to do is follow those plans and we are sure to arrive at the destination that God has in store for us. Does that sound easy? You already know if you've lived any amount of time with Christ that the hard part on our end is to just follow God.
The summer is coming up and many people have plans for a trip. Some will decide to just take a break and not go anywhere. Either of those options are fine. There is something to be said about those who may travel not just for the summer but ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. Victory is not achieved through shouting and dancing. It's achieved through prayer, perseverance, diligence, patience, and a serious willingness to do your part. You have to speak it. You have to believe it. You have to be willing to achieve it. Great things don't always simply fall in your lap. Sometimes, you have to do something on your part in order to see God do His part.
Now that we got that out of the way let's have plain talk this week. Think about all of the things so far you are victorious in. Now think about the things you can see your victory coming to. Lastly, think about the things that don't seem to be heading in the way of victory. If you're honest with ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. Let's start out this week by asking two simple but powerful questions. How much more time do you have left to live? When is Christ coming back? The truth is none of know the answer to either of those questions. While it would be nice to know, the reality is that we will never know the answer to either of those questions.
What are we supposed to do? We are supposed to simply be ready. There is nothing else we can do. We are charged to live this life for Christ. We are instructed to not count on tomorrow because it may not be here for us. We are instructed to trust God for our salvation. We are instructed to be holy because God is holy. We are instructed to do a lot of things that...

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 ...
