From Jim’s heart for men…The Power of Obedience

When you consider the extraordinary ways God worked through men such as Moses and Paul, you may think, “I can’t measure up to people like them. I don’t have what they have.”

But you must realize that these “heroes” of the faith were just common, ordinary people. It was their obedience – their complete yieldedness to God – that gave them uncommon strength and faith. They submitted their lives to God, which freed God to work through them.

I don’t know about you, but their examples inspire me to re-evaluate my own obedience. Am I reluctant to listed to God because I think He is asking the impossible? Am I failing to make myself available to Him because I’m doubtful or afraid? Your part is to simply obey, and God will do His part.

A Prayer to Pray:

God, I see now that You can do anything through me if I will simply yield myself to You. Help me to make myself more available to You today. Amen

If the thought of consistent obedience, power, and wisdom is missing from your life, visit the Free Resources section of our website for the simple guide, “5 Steps to Increase in Godly Wisdom.”

Do you need daily reminders of the power of God in your life? I hope that you find my book, One-Minute Insights for Men, the encouragement you need to discover the rich spiritual wisdom you need to make a real difference – a godly difference – in all you do.

Our True Citizenship

by Elizabeth George February 07, 2023

The temptation for worldly acceptance comes when you lose sight of your identity. As a believer in Christ you are a Kingdom citizen. You are a sojourner and a pilgrim, merely passing through this life on your way to eternity. Don’t get too settled in a world and a life that is passing away.

Keeping a Prayer Journal by Elizabeth and Jim George
Keeping a Prayer Journal

by Elizabeth George January 31, 2023

I know from personal experience that living a life of prayer is not easy. Our lives are filled with a multitude of activities that tend to crowd out time for prayer. How many times have you been guilty of telling someone that you would pray for them? Your heart genuinely yearned to be a part of bringing their need before the throne of God. And then what happened? I’m sure that, if you’re like me, more times than you would like to admit, you forgot about the promise to pray before you rounded the corner of the church building! Why? Because you didn’t write the request down.
