The Bible warns us saying, “But when grace is shown to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil and do not regard the grace of the Lord (Isaiah 26:10).
3 “Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow. 4 And it happened, as he sowed, that some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds of the air came and devoured it. 5 Some fell on stony ground, where it did not have...
Philippians 3 NKJV
12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
A Bridge has many definitions; for the sake of our direction we will use only one. The description we are interested in is that “A Bridge is a pathway” that connects two or more items. In our story, these bridges are relationships in our lives that connect us to each other. We build bridges made of common interests, work situations, family, faith and of course love.

When Jesus went to the cross, He went for all of our sins, not just the past ones. Walking in failure is much better than not walking at all. There is a destiny inside you and it may take your entire life to be released. You must come to the conclusion you are not an accident of human nature but a player in the plan of God destined to some worthwhile purpose whose time has or has not yet come.

Shalom which is tied to peace is an essential part of having a peaceful life and walking in the power of God. In the word itself...
Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground.
He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him.
3 He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did...
Ps. 25:14 “The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him and He will show Him His covenant.”
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High… Psalm 91:1.
Covenant is a huge subject. It is also an ancient subject – it shows up everywhere in almost every civilization that ever existed. The word covenant defines an ongoing relationship with no appointed end. It is unconditional, everlasting and cannot be broken....
The Spirit is, first and foremost, God’s personal presence on Earth and with men. The Spirit is a person and not merely a force.
Throughout the Bible, we see the Holy Spirit power used to empower individuals for specific tasks. Joseph is empowered to understand and interpret dreams and a group of people - the prophets - are empowered to bring messages from God to the people of Israel and to see what is happening from God's po...
