Run!

“What is happening?” someone said to me yesterday. “I can’t believe all the pastors and ministry leaders who are falling morally. It seems that it’s increasing exponentially.” But sadly, it makes perfect sense. With the increasing access to moral impurity permeating...

Seeking Him

When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, “Your face, O LORD, I shall seek.” Do not hide your face from me (Psalm 27:8-9 NASB). If we are to know God deeply, we must humbly realize that He is the initiator of intimacy. It is not man that first pursues, but...
