God said, 11 I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out – plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. 12 When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen. 13 When you come looking for me, you’ll find me.

The Idol of Entitlement

For the Kingdom of God is not just fancy talk; it is living by God’s power. NLT 1 Corinthians 4:20 How do you live with God’s power? Every God-begotten person conquers the world’s ways. The power that brings the world to its knees is our faith. The person who wins out over the world’s ways is simply the one who believes Jesus is the Son of God. MSG 1 John 5:4-5 Scripture tells us, we live in God’s . . . Read More »

The Greatest Battle You Will Face: It’s In Your Mind

We are in our new series. It’s all about living in freedom.

Do you believe, ‘God is with me?’ Do you believe, ‘God lives inside of me?’ Do you believe, ‘God might be in other people, but God isn’t in me?’ Is it your experience in life that you try to surrender to God, but you fail so you conclude, God isn’t with me anymore? I don’t want to drink to find peace, but . . . Read More »
