  An archer must pull back his arrow to make it fly. Before releasing the shaft, it should touch the bowman’s face. With proper aim, the arrow will hit its mark. If God is our archer, we then, are His arrows. And even though His quiver if filled beyond our knowing, every shot is carefully planned before it is lovingly released. When positioned in His mighty bow, we will experience the confusion and pain of …

Alone With God

There are several stories in the Bible where God calls one of His chosen into a place of solitude and seclusion. The apostle Paul, who has one of the greatest conversion stories in the Word of God, was led into the desert for three years. During that time the Holy Spirit instructed him in the ways of God. Saul, later known as Paul, had persecuted Christians with near fanaticism until his conversion along the Damascus …

Most of us have had an occasion where an unexpected trial or obstacle has knocked us flat, interrupting everyday plans and routines. And when a stumbling block appears out-of-the-blue, a bucket full of emotions is sure to follow. Since God created us with the capacity to express our true feelings, we should do so. God values honest communication. But once we have vented our frustration, fear, anger, and confusion over the obstacle, we must pause …

Do You Trust God Completely?

God wants our trust. His desire for us is to trust Him completely, not partially. It is all or nothing with God. A lukewarm faith and lukewarm trust are of little value. “So, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of My mouth.” Revelation 3:16 (NIV) Every worry, seemingly impossible circumstance, and burning desire is in His control. Unfortunately, fear and doubt creep in when we do not understand …

The German composer, Felix Mendelssohn is one of the most celebrated classical music figures of the early romantic period. He wrote many compositions as a child, including 5 operas and 11 symphonies. All are beautiful, unique and special, just like us. Fingerprints, snowflakes, cloud formations, sunsets, raindrops, and even music are remarkably individual and unrepeatable. God’s imagination is vast and limitless, so He has an endless supply of new masterpieces up His sleeve. But why …

Are You Honest With God?

We have the freedom to speak honestly before our King. God already knows what we think, and what we are about to say, so it is foolishness to hide our true feelings from Him. We have permission to be honest, really honest, and need not fear retribution or punishment for our transparency. “Before a word is on my tongue You, LORD, know it completely.” Psalm 139:4 (NIV) Consider Lazarus, Mary, and Martha. Jesus considered all …

Are You Hung Up On Pride?

The Bible warns us of pride. This feeling is not of God. Instead, it is from the world. Satan’s pride led to his fall from grace (Ezekiel 28). We should examine our hearts daily to see if pride has wiggled its way into our hearts. “For all that is in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-is not of the Father but is of the world.” …

Putting God First

What is your greatest treasure? What is your most precious possession? The Bible mentions our connection to this treasure. It is a heart connection. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Luke 12:34 (NKJV) If our heart treasure is money and success, we should take heed to Matthew 6:24. This scripture warns we cannot serve two masters. It is impossible to serve both God and money. Many a greedy man has …
