God as our Abba Father

“For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” Romans 8:15 NASB When we accept Christ as Lord and Savior, we are brought into the family of God. We are now joint heirs with Christ. The blessings that God promises throughout the #Bible are those of a loving Father who wants the best for us. Jesus illustrates this throughout his teachings. He calls himself the Good Shepherd. He told his followers that as God provides so wonderfully for...

Perfect Love Casts Out Fear

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.” 1 John 4:18 NASB When #fear seems overwhelming, how do we overcome it? How do we “cast it out?” John says that it is “perfect love” that overcomes fear, which is not ours, it is the love of Christ.

When we react to circumstances instead of looking to God for guidance and following his commands, we make short sighted and ill judged decisions. We see that often in our Congress. Rather than evaluating the data, making a judgment...

God is Our Refuge

“The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.” Psalm 34:7 NIV I love Psalm 34. It is such a song of #praise to God thanking him for #deliverance. David wrote this as of song of #thanksgiving to God after he was rescued from the clutches of Abimelech. This is a verse to print out and read whenever you need an uplift. I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise whall continually be in my mouth. My soul will make its boast inthe LORD; The humble will hear it and rejoice....
