Are You Looking?
by Ed Newton on March 12th, 2023
“For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” - Matthew 7:8  Are you looking for the opportunity you have been waiting for? Sometimes, we can get so caught up in “waiting” that we think we do not play a role. The Bible talks a lot about waiting. And there are even times God wants us to sit back and let Him do the work.  In those times, ...  Read More
He Knows Everything
by Ed Newton on January 22nd, 2023
“For whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and He knows everything.” - 1 John 3:20  Why should I obey God? Over the last few days, we have looked at the will of God. Sometimes, God’s will (His plans and purposes for our lives) are in conflict with our own will (what we want for our life).  The question is, when what we want isn’t what God wants for us, what should we do? I...  Read More
Accessing God’s Word
by Ed Newton on January 11th, 2023
“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” - Hebrews 4:12  Are you regularly accessing the Word of God? With this question, I am not asking if you just regularly read the Bible. What I am asking is, when life gets difficult and times g...  Read More
Made With Infinity
by Ministry Support on November 10th, 2022
“For every house has a builder, but the one who built everything is God.” - Hebrews 3:4  As human beings, we were not only made in the image of God, we were not only made intentionally by God, but we were also made with the infinity of God. Hebrews 3:4 says, “For every house has a builder, but the one who built everything is God.” Do you know what that word means: infinite? You might have heard it...  Read More
Godly Goals
by Ed Newton on October 13th, 2022
“Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.” - Proverbs 16:3What are your goals? What are you doing with your life? Where are you going? Do you have a direction? What are you pursuing? All of these are good questions to ask yourself. The answers might just tell you where you are headed. The next question I would ask you is this: Are your goals godly goals or selfish goals?In oth...  Read More
Delight Yourself In Him
by Ed Newton on September 9th, 2022
“Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart’s desires.” - Psalm 37:4   Did you know that you can have the desires of your heart? So many people make the mistake of thinking, “When I give my life to Christ, I have to give up all the things I really want.” But that statement could not be further from the truth.  In fact, God WANTS to give you the desires of your heart. But before He c...  Read More
A Spirit of Self-Discipline
by Ed Newton on August 21st, 2022
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-disciple.” - 2 Timothy 1:7   As we come to a close looking at 2 Timothy 1:7, we see the final element of what God has given us. We know He has not given us a spirit of fear. Instead, He has given us a spirit of POWER, LOVE, and SELF-DISCIPLINE.  We have looked at what it means to live in a spirit of power and lov...  Read More
A Spirit of Power
by Ed Newton on August 19th, 2022
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” - 2 Timothy 1:7   As we stated yesterday, God does not give us a spirit of fear. If we are fearful or lack faith in some area of our life, that is us listening to the enemy and believing that God is not in control and will not take care of us. But instead, we can know He will always provide because t...  Read More
Not By Accident
by Ed Newton on August 11th, 2022
“We may throw the dice, but the Lord determines how they fall.” - Proverbs 16:33   If you are reading this right now, it is no accident. The circumstances in your life right now are not an accident. What you are currently going through, what you have gone through, and what you will one day go through are no accident. If God’s hand is in it, it is not an accident, coincidence, or happenstance.   Pr...  Read More
The Forgotten God
by Ministry Support on July 28th, 2022
“The heart is free where the Spirit of the Lord is. The Lord is the Spirit.” - 2 Corinthians 3:17   Over the last two days, we have talked about what rests in our hands, and how we do not always realize the value of what is in them. If you are a believer in Christ, you have been given the Holy Spirit, who now lives inside of you, and you have His power in your hands.  The worth and value of the Ho...  Read More
Sufficient Way
by Ministry Support on July 25th, 2022
 “He answered me, ‘I am all you need. I give you My loving-favor. My power works best in weak people.’ I am happy to be weak and have troubles so I can have Christ’s power in me.” - 2 Corinthians 12:9   We have spent time the last two days referencing that Jesus is both the SINGULAR WAY and the SPECIFIC WAY to heaven. He confirms this for us in John 14:6. “Jesus said, ‘I am the Way and the Truth a...  Read More
The Power of Jesus
by Ministry Support on July 20th, 2022
“He said to them, ‘Why are you afraid? You have so little faith?’ Then He stood up. He spoke sharp words to the wind and the waves. Then the wind stopped blowing. The men were surprised and wondered about it. They said, ‘What kind of a man is He? Even the winds and the waves obey Him.’” - Matthew 8:26-27   Have you ever grasped the power of the One you serve? The One we worship in church? We call ...  Read More
