When I first began to wrestle with Jesus’ Olivet Discourse (which emerges from a heated Matthew 23, rests solidly in Matthew 24 and then ascends into end-of-days judgment by Matthew 25), I struggled.

Sometimes we forget who God is and the role He plays in our lives. Just in case you may have forgotten here is a reminder of who He is:  He is your Shelter  …For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his…

I always thought that grace was unmerited favour, but recently I’ve learned it’s also God’s supernatural empowerment on your life.

During these times it’s easy to get discouraged with so many things going wrong. Maybe covid is in your family. Maybe you aren’t getting out of debt as fast as you thought.
