Finding God's Will

I’m persuaded that God has a specific “will” for every single person.  Our job is simply to discern, then do, that will!

Satisfaction and Desire

Today, in my personal quiet time of devotion, it seemed that God “overwhelmed” me with a simple, yet profound, truth.  It had to do with “satisfaction” and “desire” and how (in-our-walk-with-Christ), the former should constantly be a foundation and catalyst for the latter.  In other words, the heart and foundation of any meaningful walk with Jesus must be…
