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. . . .  […]


Confuse concern with anxiety?

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 […]


The passing nature of troubles

By Dave Henning / September 24, 2021

“The passing nature of troubles is something Jesus calls us to recognize.  His challenge is to endure to persevere, to grow, and to overcome. . . .  Jesus knows that God permits things to happen in our lives only for a certain period of time and for a particular reason.”- Dr. Charles F. Stanley Dr. […]

By Dave Henning / September 23, 2021

Inward look at problems, solutions

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 […]


Spiritual antennas fully extended

By Dave Henning / September 19, 2021

“We must have our spiritual antennas fully extended.  We must be vigilant to discern the voice of God in the circumstances of our lives each day.”- Dr. Charles F. Stanley “Submit yourselves, then, to God.  Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”- James 4:7 (NIV) Dr. Charles Stanley concludes Chapter 7 of Can […]


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 […]


Change His nature to suit you?

By Dave Henning / September 16, 2021

“God does not change His nature in order to make you feel better about yourself.  This is something human beings often try to do; alter their behavior so that other people will respond to them in ways that are warm and accepting.  God does not change.”- Dr. Charles F. Stanley “Jesus Christ is the same […]


Downward spiral begins with our thoughts

By Dave Henning / September 15, 2021

“Our enemy is very deliberate in the way he approaches us.  He appeals to our minds first.  We do not immediately act according to our temptations.  The downward spiral begins with our thoughts.  Our bodies simply turn in the direction our minds are facing.”- Dr. Charles F. Stanley “Finally, be strong in the Lord and […]


Three basic steps for effective prayer

By Dave Henning / September 14, 2021

“Dispelling the assumption that prayer simply ‘comes naturally’ for Christians, [Jesus] asserted that prayer is an intentional, learned activity for God’s children.  In [Matthew 7:7-11], the Lord was quite simply showing the disciples the three basic steps for an effective prayer: ask, seek, and knock.”- Dr. Charles F. Stanley “Ask and it will be given […]
