Unto the Hills – January 31, 2013

Christ has triumphed over tragedy and He wants us to do the same.  In such triumph, God is glorified.  We have the power to triumph over tragedy, even in situations which might seem hopeless and unredeemable.

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ.

2 Corinthians 2:14 NKJV

Unto the Hills – January 29, 2013

God values faith, our trust in Him, above every other character quality that a Christian can develop.  And how do we develop faith?  By spending time in the presence of God through prayer and by applying His Word and His promises to our everyday lives.

Faith is the substance of things hoped for.

Hebrews 11:1

Billy Graham – Unto the Hills

Unto the Hills – January 28, 2013

God loves, but He also hates.  God hates sin which is unforgiven because it sends men and women to a timeless eternity in hell.  God is not willing that any should perish, but that all might come to a knowledge of Him.

God demonstrates His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8 NRSV

Billy Graham – Unto the Hills

Unto the Hills – January 27, 2013

According to Charles Haddon Spurgeon, “Forgiven sin is better than accumulated wealth.  The remission of sin is infinitely to be preferred above all the glitter and the glare of this world’s prosperity.”

Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Psalm 32:1

Billy Graham – Unto the Hills

Unto the Hills – January 25, 2013

As we wait upon the Lord, God may sometimes seem slow in coming to help us, but He never comes too late.  His timing is always perfect.  How could it not be so from a God who favors us, as we do our children, for a lifetime?

For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime.

Psalm 30:5
