Without a doubt, Jesus is the most amazing man that has ever walked the earth. There is so much we can learn from everything He did. How could we not follow Him if everything He did was part of a perfect plan, designed by God himself, with the sole purpose of rescuing His creation.
“And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me’” (Matthew 25:40).
For Jesus, the little ones were very important; the kids who run in our meetings, who sometimes make a lot of noise and do not let us pay attention or who, perhaps, are seeking it. These, who He calls "my smallest brothers", definitely caught the Master's attention to such an extent that the Bible mentions how they ran to be with Him and how Jesus asked that they not be held back. It seems that the enemy’s strategy is to place barriers to hide the image of Christ from the children and...

Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
(Psalm 37:5 NASB)
Living with God is about relationship. The more we get to know Him, the more we will depend on Him. It means we must give Him complete control over every area of our lives, and allow Him to be the One to guide us to our destiny.
Naturally, we want to be in control and know the final result of where God is guiding us. But God is a God of processes. He may show us an overview of where He wants to take us, but the how-to is not quite clear. It’s a life of faith. It’s in the midst of the divine processes that our character is shaped, that is when we grow into His likeness.
The root word means to compromise, remove or step aside.
In other words, God invites us to step aside, give Him the steering wheel of our lives and let Him drive. In Him, our lives rest assured.
Have we truly given God complete control over our family?...
“The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish tears it down with her own hands” (Proverbs 14:1).
There is a very big privilege God gave exclusively to man; the power of communicating through words. Words reflect what is in our heart, and as we use them, they paint a picture in our soul. With our words, we can create a beautiful painting or a completely atrocious display, there is no mid-point. Proverbs 18:21 says: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit”. The contrast is very noticeable: life or death. Our words have the power to bring comfort and healing, or destruction and cause wounds. Everything that comes out from our mouth produces hope or despair, blessing or curse.
God gave my husband, Rich, and I three beautiful children. Every day I have the choice to edify and bring out the best in them, or discourage them and bring bitterness to their lives. I have determined to always choose the...
