3 Things You’ll Miss Today if You Don’t Pray in the Spirit DR. STEVE GREENE for Charisma News Bob Yandian, pastor and excellent Bible teacher, taught me a spiritual lesson I’ve never forgotten. In one of his powerful teachings, he spoke about bad days and the things that happen through the normal pace of life.

Transforming…

Transforming… Tuesday October 8, 2002 I walked into my first AA meeting, raised my hand and with a veil of false pride proclaimed “my name and I am an alcoholic”! I sat and listened as the people in attendance around me spoke about their situation. I was sober at that moment, but that soon changed – as soon as the meeting ended. A couple of weeks later, after attending a few more meetings, listening to people discuss their experiences with being alcoholic and coming to realize that I needed more…

GOD WILL GIVE YOU MORE THAN YOU CAN HANDLE by R.D. McClenagan for Core Christianity Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy. – Psalm 61:1-3 God will give you more than you can handle. Guaranteed.

The Plan of God in the Suffering We Experience Podcast by Chris Platt for Radical God promises to give His people “a future and a hope” in Jeremiah 29:11, and many Christians assume that this rules out the possibility of suffering in their lives. However, we need to consider this promise in its wider, biblical context. In this message from Jeremiah 29:11–13, David Platt helps us think through God’s promise to Jeremiah in the context of God’s overarching plan of redemption through Jesus Christ. Even in the midst of pain…
