How Do You Know You Can Trust God?

7/19/2019

The lovely Galilee in Israel is approximately fifteen miles in length and averages some five to seven miles across. The entire Jordan valley is cradled in what was once a geographic or seismic rift that runs from the slopes of Mt. Hermon in the north to the Dead Sea some 1300 feet below sea level in the south. Galilee, however, is located about in the middle of that fault--about 700 feet below sea level.

Here Is The Only Shortcut To Victory

7/18/2019

For the person who realizes that the circumstances of life are never bigger than God, there is a short‑cut to victory. It is one of the few shortcuts that you ever experience in life that can save you a lot of sweat and pain. It is learning the secret of praise and thanksgiving. Thankful for what? For the fact that I feel so low I'm looking up to see bottom? Thankful that my job played out on me, thankful that my husband of 18 years left me for another woman? Thankful that there aren't many...

Here’s Why You Don’t Feel Close To God

7/17/2019
More
You can no more have intimacy with God without prayer than you can have intimacy in marriage without communication. Though you may have never thought of the two in relationship to each other, what makes both meaningful is much the same. Success in both is dependent upon the quality of your relationship with the object of your affection. When you can't communicate with your husband or wife--for whatever reason, your relationship rapidly disintegrates. Love grows cold. Warm memories are just...

2 Keys To Bypassing Bitterness

“I have a question,” the email read. “How can I forgive people who insulted me, lied to me and humiliated me for a long time? It was a very difficult time for me, but I could not change the situation. Now I have escaped from this hell but I have a strong desire for revenge. I want them to feel what I felt when they jeered at me.”

Don’t Quit!

7/15/2019

There are some individuals whose spirits can't be conquered. No matter how they are repressed, how they get hit, they just get up and walk, then run, then climb the heights. They just don't know how to quit. Such was the old man who presented his claim to Joshua in the Bible, "I am eighty-five years old!" he began," but he quickly adds, "I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out; I'm just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then." And then he got to the bottom line:...

What Does It Mean To Be A Citizen Of God’s Kingdom?

Suppose that Buckingham palace made an announcement, a strongly worded one, saying that it is the pleasure of Her majesty, the Queen, that henceforth, all British subjects should live in peace, that all citizens should immediately stop hating each other, that marriages should be harmonious, and that all criminals should cease and desist from all illegal activity immediately?

Discover A Life Marked By Peace, Harmony And Order

After He had prayed all night, Jesus called twelve men to follow Him--ordinary men who were fishermen, small businessmen, and government employees. None were university graduates or professionals as we think of them today. They were men with calluses on their hands, with the smell of labor on their clothes, with dust on their sandals.

The Place To Find Real Joy

7/10/2019

The Graeco-Roman world into which Jesus was born hardly knew what to do with the narrow strip of land on the eastern Mediterranean which was then known as Palestine. When Romans built a gymnasium and baths at Caesarea, the Jews revolted. Eventually Caesar sent his legions, who subdued the rebellion. Then politicians discreetly forged alliances with Jewish leaders whose loyalty to Rome was unquestioned.

How Do I Seek An Invisible Kingdom?

7/9/2019
More
When Jesus told the disciples that they were to seek first God's kingdom and His righteousness, He used a strong word, one which means to earnestly seek something, something worthy of the time and effort it takes to reach that goal.

What Is The Kingdom Of God?

7/8/2019
More
While Disneyland calls its playground "The Enchanted Kingdom," there is another kingdom, one which I think of as "The Invisible Kingdom." Jesus referred to it as "the Kingdom of God." It's an invisible kingdom with no boundaries, no police force, no border control, and no laws except the law of love. But wherever you find God's people, you will find evidence of this invisible kingdom in the lives of its subjects.

Some 600 miles south of Cairo, on the banks of the ancient Nile, stands the ancient temple of Karnak, one of the most splendid structures of the ancient world. Across the river is the majestic valley of the Kings and the awesome tombs which were monuments to the egos of the pharaohs.

Learn How To Trust God

The picture is vivid: A little girl stands at the edge of the window in a burning building. It's the second floor, and to the child, the ground seems like a long way down. Below is a fireman--a big guy, standing there in his yellow garb, big hat, and black boots. With outstretched arms, he reaches for the child and yells, "It's OK to jump. I'll catch you! You'll be OK. Come on, kiddo. Jump!"

How Do I Overcome My Fear Of God?

7/3/2019

A friend who has a real hunger for God struggles with the fear that her search for God will only result in ultimate disappointment. As I read her heart cry, I thought of the words of A. W. Tozer, who wrote, "In this hour of all-but-universal darkness one cheering gleam appears: …there are to be found increasing numbers of person whose religious lives are marked by a growing hunger after God Himself."

When It’s Good To Lose Control Of Your Life

If you were being really honest, would you say that most of your prayers sound something like this: “God, please let me have my own way. Please give me an easy life, with not too many challenges, one that I can handle just fine with a few encouraging Bible verses thrown in!”

Facing the Knesset, or the Israeli Parliament, in Jerusalem is a beautiful menorah, a gift from Britain to Israel. It was created by the famed sculptor Benno Elkan and is covered with images, telling the story of Israel's long and colorful history. A menorah, which is a seven-branched candelabrum, is significant, representing the fullness of God.

How To Think About God & Life’s Difficulties

Do the old questions never really go away? Almost every time I talk with someone who has had something happen which he didn't like, I am asked, "How could a loving God do this?" Or, "I can't understand why God didn't step in and do something. After all, if He is as powerful as He is supposed to be, why didn't He stop this from happening?"

In November of 1833, a great star shower took place that frightened thousands of men and women in the Western Hemisphere. The stars fell like snowflakes. Although scientists had predicted such an occurrence, frightened people thought that the end of the world was about to occur.

Who Is Jesus To You?

Night had draped its dark curtain around the Sea of Galilee. The Palestinian sky, which usually had countless stars, was darkened with an ever-increasing number of black storm clouds. Thirteen men made their way to the water's edge. One by one they entered a waiting ship, and when all were on board, they launched out onto the choppy waters, and steered for the opposite shore.

Where do you draw the line? I thought of that issue when Brother Andrew—the man often described as “God’s Smuggler”—sat at lunch with me and a group of friends and of being severely criticized because he had reached out to the Hezbollah, in an attempt to bring peace between them and Israel. “Anybody who is a friend to them is an enemy to Israel,” said his critics.

Are There Two Different Gods In The Bible?

6/24/2019

"Dear Dr. Sala," writes a friend of Guidelines, “I have a question. How come the God of the Old Testament, who allows killing of men, women and children, is so different from the God of the New Testament who says love your enemies? Did God change His mind, or are we talking about two different Gods? There is a big movement…that is saying that they are two different Gods. I would greatly appreciate your thoughts."
