Are you content? God’s Word encourages us to learn to be content in whatever our situation. Listen to a devotional by Emily Mariano about embracing what God has given you.
Is God the source of strength in your life? God’s Word declares that He is a sanctuary for us. Listen to a devotional by Janie Alfred about allowing Him to be our refuge.
Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;
Celebrate His lovely name with music.
Psalm 135:3 NLT
Praising the Lord is an act of worship. As Christ-followers we are to praise the Lord because He is good, not necessarily because of all the good in our life. However, in some seasons there is a sweet ease to rejoicing in all that God has done and is doing. Over the last 10 years God has multiplied our church family and on July 4, 2017 we celebrated His work at Reliance Church!
Tuesday, February 20, 2007 began like any other day. I was up early and on my way to Revival Christian Fellowship, a church Brenda and I planted with our friends Dave & Pam in 1992, where I served as the Executive Pastor.
I can’t remember the details of my drive to the office that morning, but everything would be eclipsed by a news flash from God later that day, calling me to resign from Revival and later revealing His purpose to plant a church.
Our failure to be good witnesses might explain the lack of success of our soul winning efforts.
