Do we truly know God's heart?

As believers, we know who God is. We know God is love, good, and kind. We hear it at church every Sunday. We are reminded during the difficult seasons by our friends. If we grew up in the church, we heard is a lot as a kid. But has this knowledge of God’s goodness transferred from our head to our heart?

Run the Race to Win

Unfortunately many of the tracks that we choose to step on lead to destruction, unhappiness, boredom, or a feeling of a void. There are so many tracks to choose from that sometimes we forget what Jesus told us to do- “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” Matthew 6:33. As we get on the right track we may ask ourselves, can I endure this till the end?

Personal Inventory

I heard a stat many, many years ago that it takes more than 10 positives to combat one negative. With that insight alone I started to realize why there are so many people stuck in neutral. Just think about it for a minute- where do the negatives come from?

Substitutes

I was thinking of all the substitutes that we choose that are available in life, the substitutes that we choose to fill that come from the voids… our inner being that lets us know that something is missing or lacking. Some of these substitutes can be temporary fixes, but many times they can end in destructive behavior. Many of these choices are alcohol, drugs, shopping, and pornography, prostitution, gambling, even the pursuit of power, money, prestige, fame, and relationships… and the list goes on and on.

Unlimited Potential

When I realized how connected we really were to Jesus, it was one of those ‘aha!’ moments. In John 15 it says that God is the vine dresser and Jesus is the vine and it refers to us as the branch. Yes, we’re connected!! We all want to be productive, successful and we want to produce. What this chapter goes on to encourage us is to stay connected to Jesus…

A Better Way to Pray
