    5 Things To Remember When God Says No, Part 2

    As we finish up our series, The New Normal, we have been highlighting many things that we experience when we become Christ followers that, before we were in Him, would’ve been considered strange. However, now we understand that they are part of our New Normal experience in Christ. As I mentioned in my last blog, this includes miracles, hearing God’s voice, seeing God move in and through our lives, experiencing His power and His presence, receiving blessings from Him, and understanding His heart towards us. These are all wonderful parts of our process.

    But, the other side of The New Normal is that we are no longer in charge of our own destiny. The Bible says in Hebrews 12:2 NLT that Jesus is “the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.” In other words, our lives are now ordained by God. We have surrendered ourselves to Him, placed our destinies in His hands, and are trusting Him for the outcome. Read More

    5 Things To Remember When God Says No, Part 1

    Recently, we began a new series in our church called The New Normal. This series highlights the many things that we experience when we become Christ followers. Before we were in Him these things would have been considered strange, but now we begin to understand that they are part of The New Normal. This includes miracles, hearing God’s voice, seeing God move in and through our lives, experiencing His power and His presence, receiving blessings from Him, and understanding His heart towards us. These are all wonderful parts of our process.

    There is also another side to The New Normal. When we surrender our lives to God, we are no longer in charge. The Bible says in Hebrews 12:2 NLT that Jesus is “the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.” In other words, our life story is being written by God—not by us! It means we have surrendered our lives to Him, placed our destinies in His hands, and we now have to trust the trajectory of our lives.

    Three Common Mistakes Many Christians Are Making

    Recently, we began our new series called, “The New Normal,” which highlights how we can expect a new normal in Christ. For example, before you became a follower of Jesus, you may have dealt with depression and anxiety, and this was just a normal part of your everyday life. However, now that you are in Christ, you can expect that there is a new reality that is normal. You can expect victory in your mind. Your mind can be renewed by the promises God has revealed in His word. You can lay aside worry and anxiety, and take up the peace that God has made available to us through His Son, Jesus. This peace-filled mind is now part of our new experience. It may not have been part of our normal experience before, but now that we are in Christ, this is The New Normal!

    As I was thinking about what is now normal in Christ, I began to realize that our culture has influenced what is considered normal, even within the church. With some areas of life, this has been a positive influence. However, in other areas, the influence has caused many Christ followers to make critical mistakes, which can rob us of the full benefits we should expect. Read More
