We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;2 Corinthians 4:8
Jesus told us that in this world we would have tribulation but that we could be of good cheer because He had overcome this world and all its tribulations. In other words, we have a victorious guide well acquainted with all the difficulties we might face.~ Pastor Bob Barnett
Burdened for Greater Resultsby Victoria Haddad
Meaningful change happens when we truly surrender to God and when we are desperate for better outcome. People have always tried to figure out who God is and how to experience Him in a powerful way. Many are burden for greater result, but we will never experience the fullness of the greater result until we surrender totally to God. If we listen to radios or watch the news we will see that people everywhere are crying out for change. They want more than what they currently have. The church is also crying out for change and the people of God are in desperate need of experiencing the power of God in a mighty way.
