Jesus tells us not to worry, but to pray. How often do you let worry consume your thinking and paralyze your forward motion? Do you let the little things become big things in your life, and stop you from enjoying God’s process in your life? Do you know how to pray, how to stop worry and how to enjoy the process of maturity? Someone told me they feel like they are sitting in the back seat of God’s station wagon asking, “Are we there, yet?”

Quit making excuses about things in your life that are too difficult to accomplish, or too challenge to take on. You don’t need to keep making excuses, because no one cares how good your excuses are. Jesus tells a story in Luke 14 where people give excuses instead of coming to the Master’s banquet. He is saying that our excuses have no place in the Kingdom of God. In order to grow in faith, we need to quit making excuses.
God will often allow you to have more than you can handle. Why do people die unexpectedly? Why do we have so many with cancer? Why is there so much pain in the world, right now? God is shaping those who have faith to be like Christ. Stop saying, “God won’t give you more than you can handle.” We debunk the myths of spirituality here at Crossroads. Pay attention, so you don’t end up saying the wrong thing to people who are suffering through pain.
Don’t take this one on alone. You need God’s spiritual authority to defeat the enemy. Many people don’t believe the devil and his demons even exist, but the Scriptures clearly teach that evil was cast out of people, Jesus came to defeat the power of death and Satan, and we can be free from the dominion of darkness. Join us to find out how demons work, what they do, and how to stand victorious in Jesus Christ.
God’s divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness. You are not worthy on your own, but God makes you worthy, God makes you whole, God makes you good enough. Sometimes we feel inadequate to accomplish the calling God has for us, in our own power, but with God’s power, we can do everything in Christ. Join us for a lesson in what God thinks of you.
What does God want for your life, and what is getting in the way? If you played out the rest of the story, what are you doing now that hinders God’s work in your life? You can choose to stop. As we continue to be transformed into Christ-likeness, what needs to fall away in your life?
Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” – John 19:28. Jesus had fulfilled the Scripture, and completed all that he was sent to do, and now calls out in thirst. How does this reflect the mission of God in our lives as followers of Jesus? How will you respond to others who are thirsty for God’s living water?
