Qualifying the Called

“Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God.” - 2 Corinthians 3:5   Have you ever felt like God has you in over your head? Like you know you are following His will, and you are at peace with where you are because of your obedience, but you aren’t at peace when you think about performance?   You just don’t know if you have what it ta...  Read More
No Pressure
by Ed Newton on September 15th, 2022
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” - John 14:27   Has someone ever told you to do something, made it seem so simple as if anyone can do it, and then added the end, “No pressure”? It’s like just by saying that, your blood pressure rises and you begin to feel uneasy. They said no pres...  Read More
Not Numb

But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” - John 16:33   Are you in the midst of trials, difficulties, or heartache? Has life thrown you a curveball that is just too much to handle?

Eyes Above The Water
by Ed Newton on August 15th, 2022
“Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, ‘Lord, save me!’” Immediately Jesus reached out His hand and caught him. ‘You of little faith,’ He said, ‘why did you doubt?’” - Matthew 14:29-31   Yesterday, we read a good reminder that the God you serve is bigger than the problems you face. ...  Read More
Power of Prayer
by Ministry Support on July 27th, 2022
“Because of this, I say to you, whatever you ask for when you pray, have faith that you will receive it. Then you will get it.” - Mark 11:24   Yesterday, we talked about how we often do not realize what we have in our hands. By hands, more specifically I mean what we have access to. As faithful believers, we have direct line access to God the Father.   This is a God who is all-knowing. He knows ab...  Read More
Peace Forever
by Ministry Support on February 4th, 2022
“But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. Then one of the elders said to me, ‘Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.” - Revelation 5:3-5 Yesterday, we discu...  Read More
Eternal Peace
by Ministry Support on December 31st, 2021
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27).  Peace on earth—we have all prayed for it. We all wonder how different the world would be without violence or hatred and how different people would be without jealousy or strife.            We all dream about an ideal world where there is ...  Read More
The Heartbeat of God
by Ministry Support on December 19th, 2021
“He is before all thing, and by Him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:17). As we’ve discussed before, the Christmas season has an effect on the world like no other time of the year does. We’ve explored how everyone seems to live in a state of anticipation at Christmas, not just for presents or for big dinners. Everyone seems to have a deeper, more supernatural anticipation. Christmas is the...  Read More
A Glorious Anticipation
by Ministry Support on December 17th, 2021
“Therefore, God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11).   The Christmas season is a time of expectation. We discussed this...  Read More
A Promise of Peace
by Ministry Support on December 13th, 2021
“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; He will crush your head, and you will strike His heel” (Genesis 3:15). We live in a broken and bitter world, but ever since the fall of mankind, God has been pursuing us. So often we wonder why our circumstances are not more ideal. Perhaps you ask why God would allow you to go through the season you’re in or wh...  Read More
