Whatever city you enter and they receive you, eat what is set before you.Luke 10:8
The disciples were to be grateful for whatever was provided. All too often things can become more about the food than the fellowship. Don’t allow a wonderful holiday like Thanksgiving to become more about gratification than gratitude. ~ 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.
Mercy & Grace
Graceby Max Lucado
Max Lucado asks a deeper question: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace?
God’s grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. From insecure to God secure. From regret riddled to better-because-of-it. From afraid to die to ready to fly.
Choosing Gratitudeby Nancy Leigh DeMoss
By intentionally thanking God and others, bitterness and entitlement are replaced with joy and the humble realization of just how undeserving we really are. Derived from a popular Revive Our Hearts radio series, Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy challenges and equips the reader to live a life of intention. A life based on thankfulness – for the freedom Christ has provided and for the blessings of others.
