The Sufficiency of God – Billy Graham

I am not exaggerating when I say that my mourning was turned to joy, and my sighing into singing. Happy are they that mourn for the inadequacy of self, for they shall be comforted with the sufficiency of God.

Let Your Pain Draw You Nearer to God – Rick Warren

The first thing you do is tell him exactly how you feel. It’s what you naturally do when you see a disaster like a hurricane or an earthquake and cry out, “Oh my God!”

Occupy Till Jesus Comes -Kenneth Copeland

If we’re to do that effectively, most of us are going to have to change our attitudes. We’re going to have to recognize that Jesus has already won the victory.

Realities of Life – Billy Graham

Thousands of people have made plans to escape from the realities of life. A new word has come into common usage the last few years. That word is “escapism.”

Heal Your Hurt with Grace – Rick Warren

As a Christian, everything you say should be kind. This is getting harder and harder in the world that we live in today. But it applies to everyone—even that person with a different political opinion.

Stir Up the Power – Kenneth Copeland

“out of your belly shall flow rivers of living water” (John 7:38). But, during those times, you can’t even find the creek bank, much less the river.

Enjoy Life – Billy Graham

My wife says that the best way to get a child to eat his food is to see his parents enjoying theirs. Our children will not be attracted to Christ if we make Him seem dull.

Lift Holy Hands Instead of Shaking Fists – Rick Warren

When you let your hurt go, all of that energy you’ve wasted on hating, resenting, carrying a grudge, and nursing your resentment will be released. Then you can use your energy on more important and constructive projects.

Stir Up the Power – Kenneth Copeland

Greatly desiring to see you, being mindful of your tears…. I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you…. For God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

2 Timothy 1:4,6-7, New King James Version

There are times when you know what God has called you to do, but you just don’t feel you have the inner resources you need to do it. Somehow you’ve simply run dry. You know the Word says that “out of your belly shall flow rivers of living water” (John 7:38). But, during those times, you can’t even find the creek bank, much less the river.

The Word of God tells us how to handle those situations through a clear command: “Stir up the gift inside you.”

You stir yourself up! Everything you need is already in you. Jesus put it there. Everything you’ll ever need to accomplish what God has called you to do has been placed inside you by God Almighty.

Faith is in there. Power is in there. Love is in there. Believe that. Speak it out. Say it to yourself now, right out loud:

“In the Name of Jesus, I stir up the gift that’s within me by faith. I’m stirring up my faith. I’m not going to wait until I feel stirred up. I’m stepping out by faith and expecting my feelings to follow!

“I’m stirring up the love of God that’s in me. I’m stirring up the power. I’m stirring up myself and running the devil out of my affairs. I’m stirring myself up in the Spirit of the living God! I am stirred up!”

Whose Son Is He? – Billy Graham

We must answer this question with both belief and action. We must not only believe something about Jesus, but we must do something about Him. We must accept Him, or reject Him.
