Before we start moving into a new year, let's be sure we start properly. Before filling our schedules and getting back into old routines or starting new ones, let's make room to hear from God about what HE dreams for your year.

Two critical daily decisions we can make to help us arrive at the place God desires are to remember and relent.

God doesn't want you to live another year without peace. He wants you to have peace with God, peace within, and peace with others.

If you are a real Jesus-follower, you don't get to choose. You will be a generous giver.
An illusion is something that is believed to be true or real but is actually false or unreal — a crafty construction or fantasy.
Illusions color our perspective on finances, morality, relationships, and how we do business. In other words, illusions are nothing more than lies we believe. And who is the father of lies? The devil.
The devil’s strategy behind illusions is simple: Take what’s true and twist it. Take what’s evident and distort it. Change it just enough to lead people astray because it’s not always what you think.

Until you embrace the fact that you're a sinner, you will not be open to embracing the fact that God sent you a Savior.

Purity paves the way to intimacy. Giving up something now for something better later is not a sacrifice; it's an investment.

When we suffer, God has not abandoned us. God is helping us learn obedience. God is stripping away all that would compete with our affection and allegiance to the supreme treasure of our souls.

You can't be out from underneath the human authorities He's established and under God's authority at the same time. God works through human authority, whether they believe in Him or not.

Our freedom expands or shrinks with each decision we make. How have you believed lies that took away your freedom? What truths have you chosen that have expanded your life?

Satan’s ultimate agenda is to destroy everything good for humans, and so he uses deception to devastate our hearts and minds and sometimes even our bodies. It wrecks relationships, marriages, families, and anything truly valuable to the human race.
We’ve all heard this phrase before: “As long as you live under my roof...” Right? Maybe you heard it one too many times as a kid growing up.
The home should be the most influential place on planet Earth. And the person who potentially has the greatest influence on a child is a parent. A parent’s behavior (not advice) determines if their child wants to be like them or with them once they are older. But the fact is none of us have perfect parents or families.
Parenting is a great privilege and responsibility, and like the old saying goes, “More is caught than taught.” So, what does it look like to raise a godly family, a godly home? What does it look like to live... under my roof?

Just because you inherit something doesn't mean you have to pass it down. You can reject the negative genes that have been passed down to you and choose life.

To raise good kids, for them to have a faith that lasts, you must have your identity, authenticity, character, and greatness rooted and strengthened in Christ. Every other ground is sinking and shifting.

No other relationship on planet Earth, including the parent-child relationship, can adequately illustrate our union with Christ the way a marriage does…This is the strongest reason why marriage cannot be redefined and must be protected at all costs.

Truth without grace is mean. Grace without truth is meaningless. You need both to foster a healthy home. If you can't speak the truth in love, you will eventually resent the people you love.

The home has the greatest potential for influence on a child's life. What happens in your home is more important than what happens at work, at school, or even at church.
You are engaged in a battle for your mind, a warfare per se. Most of life’s battles are won or lost in your mind, and your life is always moving in the direction of your strongest thoughts. The life you have is often a reflection of this. So, what are you to do with these unwanted thoughts or occupants that live in your mind? How can you have a positive life when you have a negative mind? Can you evict them? Can you give them a 30-day notice? How do you overcome those unwanted thoughts that live in your head … rent free?

You don’t have to live in the grip of anxiety and fear. You can allow God’s Word and the Holy Spirit to work in you. Your rationale, logic, and emotions can be shielded from the illogically absurd, ridiculous, unfounded, and crazy thoughts that try to grip your mind.
Sep 19, 2021
Ask God to help you call to mind the things in your life that are the positives—the blessings. They're there; you just need to see them.

Where your mind goes, you go. You always have a choice. We have the weapons and power to win.

God wants you to have a sound mind. Acknowledge your stronghold and deal with it. Surrender your life to embrace the life and truth of Jesus. You can choose your way to life and truth.
Sometimes the idea of sharing the gospel with everyone can feel overwhelming. But what if we simplified it? What if we narrowed this seemingly impossible task to just one. One person to connect with, talk with, and invest in. One person in your life whom you can lead to Christ. Doesn't seem too overwhelming and scary, right? So... who's that one person you can begin to introduce Jesus to? Everyone has a plus one, who's yours?

You are here to be a light to the world. Your life is not for you alone; it is a means to an eternal end.

Worse than failure is living with the regret of never having stepped out in faith to pursue your vision.
Aug 15, 2021
Any time God leads you to do anything meaningful, generous, significant, something that benefits others and is eternal, expect opposition. Satan does not bother anyone who is not a threat. When you step out, the devil tries to step in to stop you from doing the work of God.

The burden you bear often reveals the calling you will embrace.

The most important abilities are availability and agility, being flexible for whatever God brings your way. Get personally involved in what God wants to do. Are you ready?
Our view of Jesus will impact every area of our life. Our faith in Jesus should transform the relationships we have. Christ is greater than it all. This means we should make Him greater in our homes, our churches, and the world. Choosing to make Jesus a priority causes us to have greater hope, greater wholeness, greater freedom, and greater purpose. Join us as we talk about how to make Jesus greater in and through our lives.

God values people who serve the church. God values people who serve people. God values people who serve Him.

Is Jesus comfortable in your life? If so, there is peace. This is how you know you are on the right path. When you realize and experience how much God loves you, you will want to let go of everything that will get in the way.
Jul 11, 2021
There’s only ONE who can complete you. Through Him you will receive peace of mind and heart—greater wholeness.

A greater understanding of who I am in Christ enables me to have greater joy, greater peace, greater love, and ultimately, a greater life.
