Feature | Pastor Greg’s Devotion: “Why We Can Trust God”

6/25/2022
“O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge.” —Psalm 62:8 Someone once asked me what was the most spiritual moment of my life, the moment when I felt God more than any other time. I had to think about that. Was it the day that I accepted Christ as a 17-year-old on my high school campus? I don’t remember that as being an emotional day, but it was the most important day of my life. The day I was baptized in the ocean at Pirate’s Cove in Corona del...

Staying Cool When Things Get Hot | Staying Strong Under Pressure

6/23/2022
Ever see a piece of petrified wood? It’s hard as a rock. It’s wood that was under such intense pressure for such a long time, it became solid and rock-like. It’s a good object lesson on how times of pressure can make us stronger. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points to a time of pressure faced by three Hebrew young men.

Dream On! | God's Standards for Our Lives

6/20/2022
Ancient Greeks and Romans decided to measure what we now know as one “foot” (12 inches) based on the size of a man’s foot. The trouble is: feet vary. If there’s no absolute standard, whose foot is right? Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie speaks of the importance of following God’s consistent, unchanging standard in how we live.

What in the World Is Going On? | Being Faithful in the Small Things

6/17/2022
Remember the first time you drove a car? It was unnerving. Just starting the car and adjusting the mirrors took concentration. But before long, you were driving in traffic . . . merging . . . parallel parking -- or something close to it. But you had to start with the small things before you could tackle the big things. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie says the same dynamic applies in our walk of faith. Being faithful in the small things equips us for the big things. Listen on...

You Reap What You Sow | Does God Notice Your Actions?

6/14/2022
Some do many great things, but talk very little about them. Some do few great things, but talk a lot about them. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie presents a contrast between Mordecai and another man named Haaman. They both appear in the story of Esther. One is a good man and gets little recognition – the other, an evil man who’s angling for great recognition.

We tend to think of people who do big things as invincible—but everyone is susceptible to trials. Even Elijah, who called fire down from Heaven, faced the burden of depression.
