Maturing as Christians – marginal interest?

By Dave Henning / September 28, 2021

“Men or women who are only marginally interested in maturing as Christians will have a difficult time with adversity.   Their tendency will be to blame God and become bitter.  Instead of seeing adversity as something God is trying to do for them, they will see it as something He is doing to them.  It’s all […]

The issues that entangle us

By Dave Henning / September 26, 2021

“For the most part, we are the ones who determine how long we will be anxious. . . .  Too often, however, we fail to deal with the issues that entangle us, and we allow worry and anxiety to settle permanently in our souls.  The result is that we lose our peace. . . .  […]

By Dave Henning / September 25, 2021

“We must be careful not to confuse concern with anxiety.  It is normal for a Christian to have deep concerns.  Concern motivates us to intercede and to take godly actions toward meeting the needs of others.  Concern, yes!  Anxiety, no! . . .  Concern involves wanting to see things done well so that God receives […]

By Dave Henning / September 24, 2021

By Dave Henning / September 22, 2021

“When we meditate upon the Lord, we see things from a different perspective.  The things that worry us begin to lose their grip. . . .  Our inward look at problems or situations is replaced by a heavenly view, because we are seated in the heavenly places with Christ Jesus.  Meditation brings us to a […]

The quieting effects of meditation

By Dave Henning / September 21, 2021

“It is in the midst of such constant turmoil that the believer stands in great need of the quieting effects of meditation, so that he may distill God’s voice from the noise of everyday living.  God gave the practice of meditation . . . to all HIs children so that we might better relate to […]

Sit quietly in a room alone – be still

By Dave Henning / September 20, 2021

My favorite meditative walk involves hiking a 1.7 mile trail around Mallard Lake at the Wehr Nature Center in Hales Corners, WI.  On September 17, 2020, I spotted a great blue heron perched on a fallen tree that crossed a small river.  That heron went about its hunting, unperturbed by my presence. Blue herons range […]

Seek the whole counsel of God

By Dave Henning / September 18, 2021

“If we only know the Word selectively and dwell on one particular favorite subject, we fail to seek the whole counsel of God.  The way we become wealthy and overflowing with the truth of the Word is to meditate upon Scripture, search it out, digest it, and apply it to our hearts.”- Dr. Charles F.

Facts and truth – a big difference

By Dave Henning / September 17, 2021

“There is a big difference between facts and the truth.  Facts are rooted in details that tell who, what, when, where, and how.  Truth, however, encompasses more than facts.  Your quest must be . . . to understand life’s facts in the context of God’s eternal purposes.  You must seek to have His understanding and […]
