    A common saying today is that “what you do in your private life is nobody else’s business.” Well, it actually is. What you do in your private life — what you do behind closed doors or out of view of other people — builds and reveals your true character. And God sees it just as clearly as the things you do in public.

    When you’re persecuted, harassed, and face opposition, you need to respond with a blessing. Jesus says in Luke 6:27-29, “Love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, offer the other cheek also. If someone demands your coat, offer your shirt also” (NLT).

    01-14-18-Daring-Faith-Never-Be-Embarrassed-for-Standing-For-The-Truth-1

    You should never be embarrassed for standing for the truth and doing what’s right. The Bible says in 1 Peter 4:16, “It is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being called by his name!” (NLT).

    01-13-18-Daring-Faith-Its-Always-Too-Soon-To-Quit

    The difference between faithful people and unfaithful people is that faithful people don’t give up at the first sign of difficulty. They keep on keeping on. Faithful people are determined. Faithful people are diligent. Faithful people are persistent. Faithful people don’t know how to quit.

    01-09-18-Daring-Faith-Focus-On-Faith-Not-Feelings

    When you are a baby Christian, God gives you a lot of confirming emotions and often answers the most immature, self-centered prayers — so you’ll know he exists. But as you grow in faith, he will wean you of these dependencies.

    01-08-18-Daring-Faith-True-Faith-Is-Active-Never-Passive

    Faith is active. It’s not passive. It’s a commitment. Look at your lifestyle and see what kinds of actions follow as a result of it. If you’ve got a faith that’s real, it can be demonstrated.

    01-07-18-Daring-Faith-A-Secret-Faith-Is-A-Shallow-Faith

    Go public with your goals in life! Announce your intention, the change you want to make in your life, what you’re asking God to do. Clarify what you really want, and then state it publicly. You need to tell everybody, because a secret faith is a shallow faith.

    01-06-18-Daring-Faith-Choose-Faith-Over-Fear

    If you’re going to make a fresh start with faith in your life, you have to face your fears. Don’t let them control you! Fear has an incredible ability to paralyze our potential, to keep us from launching out, to keep us from having faith in our lives.

  • Let God Tell You What to Give

    01-05-18-Daring-Faith-Let-God-Tell-You-What-To-Give

    When you become a person of faith, you learn to give according to what God tells you to give. Don’t let anyone pressure you or manipulate you or “guilt” you into giving. At the same time, don’t limit what you give by deciding, “This is what I think I can reasonably give.” That kind of giving doesn’t require any faith.

    There is enormous power in your words. If you’re going to become a person of faith, you have to change the way you talk. You have to announce it in order to experience it.

    01-02-18-Daring-Faith-Develop-The-Habits-That-Produce-Godliness

    Sometimes I don’t feel like being nice to everyone. I don’t feel like doing the unselfish thing. I want to just lie on the couch and watch TV. I don’t want to do one more thing today. I don’t want to handle another problem. But just because I don’t feel like it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t do it.

    Every time God tells you to do something, it’s a test of your faith. The question is this: Do you trust God, or do you trust your gut? Do you trust the Word, or do you trust the world?

    12-31-17-Daring-Faith-You-Have-To-Believe-It-Before-You-Can-See-It

    Faith is visualizing the future. It’s believing before you see it. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see” (NLT). How will you see 2018 through eyes of faith?

    In the waiting room of life, you can choose to trust God instead of panicking. You also need to remember two things: One, God is never in a hurry. And two, God is never late. God’s timing is always perfect.
