You have been called to Serve Well in order to Rule Better! When you are faithful over a few things, Jesus said He’d make you a Ruler over many things (Mt. 25:23).  Don’t get the order mixed up. Remember: first it’s Serve, then it’s Rule. I find people who want to be the “chief servant,” but that’s an oxymoron. Just do a “few things well,” and Jesus, in time, will help you Rule many things better. “Serve Well, Rule Better.” ...

If you are a man or woman of God, “I’m Positive” that it’s time for you to RISK what you can’t stop thinking about. These thoughts are from the Lord. You are a worshipper of Jesus and so take them as from the Lord. Now act on it! Take the RISK. See what God will do. Here’s your scripture: “The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you, he will never leave you nor for sake you. Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged” (Deut. 31:8)....

I am POSITIVE that I have “More NEW Strength” than I’ve ever had in my life. Is it because I’m working out more? No! Is it because I have more money? No! Is it because I have the best of friends? No! I have more NEW strength than ever before because I’VE PLACED ALL OF MY HOPE IN THE LORD! Say this Bible promise with me ...

You’ve heard it said that all good things must come to an end, but I don’t believe that’s true. The Bible says, “And now these three remain (last forever): faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love” (1 Cor. 13:13). There were some who didn’t believe Robyn’s and my love would last, but 45 years later where are those people? Because we’re still IN LOVE! I’m POSITIVE, some “Good Things” last forever! Just Keep Loving! ...

The WILL of a man or woman is potentially full of both good or bad intentions. But make NO mistake, anything really good or really wretched starts with Your WILL. To do anything really good, YOU have to have God say “I WILL help You.” As I write this morning, I’m thinking that you have unusual potential for GOOD! In fact, “I’m POSITIVE of That!” So today decide. ”I WILL ...

Do you believe things happen by accident? I DON’T either. That means God has a plan for You and Me! Here’s how it works. You and I do what we know to do without quitting, then, when we least expect it and in His perfect TIMING, it happens. “IT” is the thing you needed to happen but didn’t know how or when. It could be today. Why? Because “There is a TIME for everything” (Ecc. 3:1a)....

I hear people say all the time, “I wasn’t WRONG!” The truth is they probably weren’t wrong, they were only half right! THINK AGAIN. Is there another side to the story? Think about this for instance, one’s view of sociology is often tied to their political persuasion, and vice versa. And, if you think about it, they’re not wrong they’re only half right. There’s ALWAYS another side to the story. So before you jump to conclusions this week, THINK AGAIN! There’s always another side to the story. So Think Again!...

Somebody once said, “If you can’t handle STRESS, you’ll never manage SUCCESS!” There are a couple of quick things I want to say about STRESS. 1) Stress is a layering of issues in your everyday life that build up to the point that you feel as though you’re “ON EDGE.” When that happens to me, I stop what I’m doing and stand up. I take three deeps breaths and hold each one for a short while, and then I walk. Walk until you can think clearly. 2) Stress can produce FEAR. We’ve heard it before, FEAR is False Evidence Appearing Real. When that happens, begin to confess out loud, “Lord I know you won’t put more on me than I can handle today!” That’s in reference to the powerful promise found in 1 Corinthians 10:13! Today, should the STRESS get you down, 1st - Walk It Off, then 2nd - Confess It Off! Remember, SUCCESS is heading YOUR way! Pastor Rich...
