Join us for daily devotionals, along with prayer for you and your needs! As the Bible teaches us in Matthew 18:19-20: "If two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in Heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them." So please feel free to submit your prayer requests (preferably through the Facebook page), and Jordan and Kristen will pray over them personally.

Today we're starting our relationship series. There is a strong parallel between our relationships with other people and our relationship with God. In fact, I would suggest that God uses our personal relationships with each other in order to teach us what our relationship with him should look like.
Giving the gift of love isn't necessarily what we think it is. Giving presents is great and all, but the ultimate love present is to give your partner the gift of grace.  Love is when your partner messes up, and instead of punishing him, and being angry, you remember what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:4 -- "love is patient, love is kind, it does not boast, it is not proud, it does not keep a record of wrongdoings." And it means that when we mess up, we're contrite, and committed to change.
Nobody likes to wait for their prayers to be answered. The waiting does serve a purpose, though. But good news, there are prayers that will get answered very quickly.
No relationship can be very successful if the two people in it have to go through a third party to communicate with each other. Relationships require intimacy, not remoteness.  Fortunately, God tells us that we have direct access to Him and His throne room, through Jesus, the ultimate high priest (Hebrew 4:14-16), so we don't need to go through a human priest or pope to have access to God.  Understanding that is the key to understanding the kind of relationship God wants to have with you
Everyone wants the fairytale romance, and that’s fine: having an ideal, searching for it, and ultimately finding it is one of life’s most rewarding experiences.  But that’s just the beginning. While fairytales bring us together, building the relationship is what keeps us together.  The same is true in our spiritual lives.  Finding God and becoming born again isn’t the end game, it’s the beginning, the start of your relationship with God, which needs to be built every day.
Just because an idea makes sense to you doesn't mean it's what God wants for you, and if you follow it, you're not going to like the results.
It's easy to lay our problems down at God's feet, but what about our hopes and our talents?
Trust the Process

Trust the Process


A lot of things God does for us don't happen instantaneously. Trust the process.
A lot of times, even after someone accepts Christ, they feel, as the band U2 said, they still haven't found what they're looking for. This is common. In this episode, we explain what's happening and what the solution is.
1) Few things stand in the way of promotion like pride. God isn’t going to promote you if it will result in you falling into sin. But the key to defeating pride is thankfulness. 2) Don’t expect God to trust you with great responsibility until you show Him you can be trusted with what He’s already given you. 3) Make sure your promotion is primarily for the benefit of others and exclusively the glory of God, not your own betterment.
Psalms 103 says God separates our sin as far as the east is from the west.  That doesn't just mean He forgives and forgets our sins, it means he separates us from the power of sin.
We all know communication is important for relationships to succeed, but it's equally important to communicate so that you can identify the wrong relationships.
Overcoming Self-Pity

Overcoming Self-Pity


Self-pity isn't a harmless emotion, it's a very deadly poison. In this message, we talk about how to overcome it.
It's no use praying for God to open a door, if you're not ready to walk through it when it does open. Too many people today act with no sense of urgency. But just as we don't like to wait on God, He certainly doesn't want to wait on us.
Step Out in Faith

Step Out in Faith


Don't be afraid to step out in faith. Even though you might doubt the outcome, never doubt God's faithfulness.
No relationship is successful if one partner tries to put the other in a box, and make that person less than what they are. It's true of our relationship with God. Just as we shouldn't try to put Him in a box, He doesn't want us to be less than what we are. If anything, he wants you to shed some of the weights that are holding you down (even though you might think they're essential parts of you), and raise you to greater heights than you've ever imagined.
God doesn't exist to perform magic tricks for us and just make our problems go away like a genie. God's purpose is to perform a good work in us so he can work through us.
There's no substitute for spending time with God, and indeed, including Him in all things.
The key to successful prayer is to get the focus off of you, and on to God. We do that through thanksgiving, praise and worship.
God does not go in and out of love. God loves us always, even when we don't treat him especially well.  Don't expect the same from your partner.  Being destined for one another is not a license to treat each other poorly and expect the relationship to work.
