How God Sees Your Struggles
by Lynn R Davis
God is just. His mercy endures forever. In every struggle, say “hallelujah anyway!” Don’t be afraid or ashamed that you are struggling. Worry, anxiety and depression won’t hold you down long once you understand. Your power and authority will bring you out. God wants more for you than mess and emotional struggle. You don’t have to struggle for success.
Widely-acclaimed author Mark Buchanan states that what we’ve really lost is “the rest of God-the rest God bestows and, with it, that part of Himself we can know only through stillness.” Stillness as a virtue is a foreign concept in our society, but there is wisdom in God’s own rhythm of work and rest. Jesus practiced Sabbath among those who had turned it into a dismal thing, a day for murmuring and finger-wagging…
Allow Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe, pastor and Bible teacher for over forty years, to illuminate the important theme in John’s first epistle: true satisfaction is found only in relationship with Jesus Christ.

“Fasting is the body talking what the spirit yearns, what the soul longs for, and what the mind knows to be true.” — Scot McKnight
Join McKnight as he explores the idea of “whole-body spirituality,” in which fasting plays a central role. This ancient practice, he says, doesn’t make sense to most of us until we have grasped the importance of the body for our spirituality, until we can view it as a spiritual response to a sacred moment. Fasting—simple, primitive, and ancient—still demonstrates a whole person’s earnest need and hunger for the presence of God, just as it has in the lives of God’s people throughout history.
