For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet he did not sin.Hebrews 4:15
It is comforting to know that the Lord knows how we feel. Christ came among us experiencing life on our level and to triumph over the things that defeat us.~ Pastor Bob Barnett
Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fearby Max Lucado
Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.
They’re talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop.

Burdened for Greater Resultsby Victoria Haddad

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.
