The Journey with Ron Moore

Ask God to check your heart. Examine your sexual temptations that lead to the sins of lust, pornography, and adultery. Examine your materialistic tendencies that lead to the sins of greed and avarice. Examine your areas of personal pride that always go before a fall. Each part of the temptation is dangerous enough.

Are you involved in a story of great grace? How about giving to someone who can offer nothing in return? How about serving a person in need?

Thank Him for His past answers. Thank Him for all His future promises. And then from the depth of your being, make this declaration, “Sovereign Lord, you are God!” Don’t ask God to change His answer; ask Him to change your heart.

Do you have any blind spots? Any areas of obedience you overlook or just flat miss? I bet you do. You can bet I have mine and we need to deal with them.

Although he was the king’s son, Jonathan acknowledged David as the next king and made the sacrifices necessary for that to happen.

Self-counsel leads us to self-directed actions and pushes God out of the picture. When God is out of the picture, we lose direction and focus.  Our thoughts and emotions are easily distracted by our circumstances. 

During the journey of life, each of us spends time on the emotional edge. We cannot escape fatigue, disappointment, and stress. These are dangerous stretches. Reactions (and overreactions) can cause much collateral damage. But our trust in God, even in the heat of pressure cooker situations, makes all the difference.

When we start by loving God with our whole being it flows from there. So if you are having trouble with the second greatest commandment; start with the first.

Don’t sell our children short. God does big work in small packages. Always has…always will.

Are you facing an impossible situation? Turn to God. “Perhaps the Lord will act on [your] behalf. Nothing can hinder the Lord from saving, whether by many or by few.”
