Grace: Access Granted

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 NKJV  Faith is what gives us access to the grace of God. If our access to grace has been granted, all that is left is for us...

What’s Wrong with Women?

Where there is no vision, the people perish… Proverbs 29:18 KJV  Women have significant contributions to make within their unique spheres of influence. So why do so many women have such a negative outlook on women? Where is our vision for who we are? I am not speaking about a vision of

Distinguishing Ourselves

We become influencers, knowing that God has called us to be the head and not the tail, above and not beneath (see Deuteronomy 28:13). As believers we should be influencing every aspect of the world. We are to not only rise above adverse circumstances but also to be leaders in a lost world. We

Agreeing with the Enemy

I have written to you who are young in the faith because you are strong. God’s word lives in your hearts, and you have won your battle with the evil one. 1 John 2:14 NLT You’re weak. You’re going to fail. You’re selfish. You have a performance mentality. You struggle with insecurity.

Ruling in Life

For the Word of God is living and powerful. Hebrews 4:12 NKJV Sometimes our greatest challenge is to simply believe God’s Word over our existing conditions. No matter how our circumstances look, His promises are steadfast. Last week, we talked about the relentless believer as one who

When Busyness Takes Control

Sometimes we get wrapped up in wanting to be needed. We want to care for others, and there is nothing wrong with that. Scripture tells us to deny ourselves and to serve others. But what should empower us can drain us if we try to do it by our own strength. Are you overwhelmed by...
