When crisis strikes, from personal suffering to devastating earthquakes, some fall back on the notions that God may not be all-powerful or that the devil freely did it. Pastor Lutzer offers true comfort found in this truth: God is in charge. Do you believe that no disaster can befall us without God’s express permission? Originally Published: Jan 18, 2021
Are you burdened by the distress all around you in the culture? COVID-19. Racial tensions. Polarization. Inflation. Pastor Lutzer shares his heart from God’s Word and offers practical insight on how to carry the burden—together. God is the One who preserves your life amid all the stress. Is it well with your soul?
Are you trying to read God's mind? Pastor Lutzer suggests 3 principles to further align with God’s Will in your decision-making: 1.) Don't follow your heart, 2.) Don't sacrifice the permanent on the altar of the immediate, and 3.) Don't make quick decisions about important matters. If you do the will of God as revealed in the Bible, He'll guide you in the unclear matters.
Are you hiding the impurities and struggles of your life? Even though none of us gravitate towards purity, Pastor Lutzer helps you discover God's will for your sexuality and thought patterns. When you know God's will, your heart won't have to give up the fight.
It’s hard to focus on what matters when you struggle with people-pleasing. You can know what God’s will is, even in a difficult position like the slaves who were Christians in biblical times. Whatever God has given you to do or whoever’s approval you seek, Pastor Lutzer zeroes in on God’s will from the heart. Pleasing the Lord is what really matters.
Whether you’re making college, career, or legacy decisions, you’ve probably asked, “What’s God’s will for me?” If you’re afraid God will ask you to do something hard or distasteful, Pastor Lutzer directs you to 3 principles of God’s will from Romans 12. It all begins with your willingness to obey what He explicitly says.
As you run the race of life, are you coasting or truly in the game? Pastor Lutzer coaches you from God’s Word to face the agony and run with discipline. You can start and finish the New Year well if you stay focused on your one purpose and one forerunner: Jesus.
What do you wish you had done differently this past year? Pastor Lutzer provides 3 rules from Hebrews 12 for successfully starting the new year: 1. Keep your "weight" down, 2. Keep your feet free, and 3. Keep the goal in mind. You can finish 2022 focused on Jesus!
The angels didn't stop singing after the first Christmas. They are undoubtably all around you, ministering to believers today. Why do they have reason to rejoice, even now? You'll learn how special your salvation is—to heavenly angels!
At the first Christmas, God sent angelic beings with a song about the wonder of Jesus' coming in the flesh. Pastor Lutzer recognizes that God sends you too. Where are you going with His message?
