“If you start thinking to yourselves, “I did all this. And all by myself. I’m rich. It’s all mine!”—well, think again. Remember that God, your God, gave you the strength to produce all this wealth so as to confirm the covenant that he promised to your ancestors—as it is today.”Deuteronomy 8:17, 18 MSG “Have you heard […]
“Teach me how to live to please you, because you’re my God. Lead me by your blessed Spirit into cleared and level pastureland.”Psalm 143:10 MSG Do you know how to live to please God?

Here’s how you test for the genuine Spirit of God.

“Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.

“For my part, I am going to boast about nothing but the Cross of our Master, Jesus Christ.

FROM THE COMMUNUTY
Yesterday my mom fell again walking outdoors at her apartment…She is okay & was released from hospital after a few hours. On the drive to West Bend after we got the call…I found complete peace just loving my God & knowing He was in control of the situation no matter what it was. And then reading your devotion today made my heart cry out with a love for Him that can’t be put into words.Thank you & thank you & thank you for listening & obeying the Lord.
