Every Day Can Be a Good Day–Because God is Good!

Not only is God listening to what we say to others, His ear is attuned when we talk to Him. He always answers prayer. Sometimes people pray and don’t get the answer they want so they wonder, “Is God really listening to me?” He is always listening, but that doesn’t mean He will always grant your requests. I’ve said many times: When you ask for something and the request is not right, God answers: No. When you ask for something and you aren’t right, God answers: Grow! When you ask for something and the timing is not right, God answers: Slow. But when you ask for something and the request, the timing, and you are right, God answers: Go!


Winning the W.A.R. of Words

The old saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” We know that’s not true. We know that sticks and stones leave one kind of wound that you can see, but words create another kind of wound—invisible—but every bit as painful and sometimes even more painful.


What Grieves the Spirit of God?

When a Christian lives the wrong way, we grieve the Holy Spirit who dwells within us. There is the sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, the unforgivable sin, and there is a lot of confusion about what the unforgivable sin is. The unpardonable sin is finally and ultimately saying, “No” to Jesus, rejecting faith in Jesus Christ. That’s the unpardonable sin, blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. If you are a born-again Christian, you have not committed that sin and you can never commit the unpardonable sin, so just put your mind at rest.
