Being obsessed with what people think is a sure way to miss what God thinks of you.
Does God seem cold hearted to you, sometimes?
Did you know that the Bible is not primarily emotionally satisfying? Did you know that Jesus didn’t ever ask someone how they “felt” about obeying God? God doesn’t ask us how we feel about walking with Him, He expects us to walk by faith.
Some will say that if they don’t “behave” and do all the right things, then God is mad with them. That’s not in the Bible. God’s grace is big enough for all of us sinners.
God doesn’t exist to serve us, we exist to serve God. God is not a short-order cook, granting our every wish.
don’t let fear and anxiety paralyze your prayers.
Before you leave your Christian faith because it’s not as easy as you thought it would be, let’s lean into the difficult things and give God the glory for the grind of life. Let’s be more grateful.
Are you stingy and selfish, or thoughtful and generous with your giving?
We walk with God to learn how to give more service away and honor God by blessing others.
All we need to do is “meet a need” for someone today. Maybe they sense distance from God and don’t need a lecture, rather, they need love from someone who cares for them.
