  • DAWN shared from What Is God's Will for My Life? by John Ortberg
    If “having peace about it” were the ultimate criterion for testing God’s will, nobody in the Bible would have done anything God asked. The sequence in the Bible is usually not: Calling Deep Feeling of Peace about It Decision to Obey Smooth Sailing Instead, it’s usually: Calling Abject Terror Decision to Obey Big Problems More Terror Second Thoughts Repeat Several Times Deeper Faith
  • DAWN shared from Be Complete (Colossians): Become the Whole Person God Intends You to Be (The BE Series Commentary) by Warren W. Wiersbe
    The word gospel means “good news.” Unfortunately, some people witness as though the gospel is the bad news of condemnation.
  • DAWN shared from Spiritual Java by Bill Johnson, Beni Johnson, Kevin Dedmon, Kris Vallotton, Danny Silk, Banning Liebscher
    When the Church begins to look for the return of the Lord instead of pursuing a greater breakthrough in the Great Commission, the blessed hope is turned into the blessed escape. To want Jesus to come back now is to sentence billions of people to hell forever.
  • DAWN shared from The Noticer Returns: Sometimes You Find Perspective, and Sometimes Perspective Finds You by Andy Andrews
    “while morality is not doing what is wrong, character is actively doing what is right. For instance, a person who sees a wrong being done but does not participate in that activity is still a moral person. He did nothing wrong. But to speak up, rather than turn away from an injustice, requires character. Therefore, without the spine to do what is right, it is possible to be a moral person with weak character.
  • DAWN shared from Draw the Circle: The 40 Day Prayer Challenge by Mark Batterson
    Leonard Ravenhill put it this way: One of these days some simple soul89 will pick up the Book of God, read it, and believe it. Then the rest of us will be embarrassed. We have adopted the convenient theory that the Bible is a Book to be explained, whereas first and foremost it is a Book to be believed (and after that to be obeyed).
  • DAWN shared from Be Strong (Joshua): Putting God's Power to Work in Your Life (The BE Series Commentary) by Warren W. Wiersbe
    If we are obeying the will of God, no matter where He leads us, we are on holy ground, and we had better behave accordingly. There’s no such thing as “secular” and “sacred,” “common” and “consecrated,” when you are in the Lord’s service. “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Cor. 10:31 NKJV
  • DAWN shared from Elijah, Steps to a Life of Power by Bob Saffrin
    Advance and the waters of difficulty will part before you, because where God’s finger points, his hand will make a way.
  • DAWN shared from Be Patient (Job): Waiting On God in Difficult Times (The BE Series Commentary) by Warren W. Wiersbe
    We are nearly always longing for an easy religion, easy to understand and easy to follow; a religion with no mystery, no insoluble problems, no snags; a religion that would allow us to escape from our miserable human condition; a religion in which contact with God spares us all strife, all uncertainty, all suffering and all doubt; in short, a religion without the cross.
  • DAWN shared from Be Patient (Job): Waiting On God in Difficult Times (The BE Series Commentary) by Warren W. Wiersbe
    “If Columbus had turned back, nobody would have blamed him—but nobody would have remembered him either.” If you want to be memorable, sometimes you have to be miserable.
  • DAWN shared from Elijah, Steps to a Life of Power by Bob Saffrin
    He is always close and always available. Even if you are in a place out of his will, even if you are not following his lead in your life, even if you are living in sin, God will find you there, and if you will follow him, he will lead you out.
