Fighting Stress with the Bible

It is not God’s will for you to live under stress. This is not God’s best for our lives. Thankfully the Bible gives us ways to minimize stress in our lives. Here are 3 biblical principals you can use to deal with stress.

1. Refuse to doubt God’s word.
God has given us precious promises that we can stand on in times of difficulty. The Bible says that heaven and Earth may pass away, but not one detail of his Word will disappear until its purpose is achieved (Matthew 5:18). God promises to watch over his Word to be sure that it is performed in your life.

And the LORD said, “That’s right, and it means that I am watching, and I will certainly carry out all my plans.”
— Jeremiah 1:12, NLT

2. Be careful what you think and speak.
The Bible says that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks (Matthew 12:34b). Repent of anything you are holding in your heart that doesn’t line up with God’s Word. Fill your heart with the Word of God in abundance, so that his words are what come out of your mouth automatically when you are under pressure.

3. Learn to rest.

The Bible says that we labor to enter into rest (Hebrews 4:11). It takes great faith to place things in God’s hands and leave them there. He has promised to work all things together for your good. Learn to rest in that promise and let him perform his Word in your life.

Be a Living Example of Love

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Romans 5:5

Don’t ever worry about not having enough love inside you. The Word says God’s love is shed abroad in your heart by the Holy Ghost. God’s love is in you. What you need to do is make a decision and let it flow.

Pray this prayer today.

In Jesus’ Name, I make a fresh and strong commitment today to live the life of love, to let the tenderness of God flow through me and heal the wounded hearts of those I meet.

Father, teach me to love even when things go wrong. To be patient and kind when the children are underfoot. To overlook the spiteful words of an angry spouse. To rejoice when someone at the office gets the raise that I thought I needed. Teach me to talk in love, to lay gossip quietly aside and to take up words of grace instead.

Lord, Your Word says that Your love is already inside me...that it has been shed abroad in my heart. So today, I resolve to remove every obstacle that would keep that love from flowing freely into the lives of others. I put resentments behind me, and I forgive all those who’ve done me wrong.

In the days ahead, cause me to increase and excel and overflow with Your love. Cause me to be what this world needs most of all...a living example of love. Amen.

Don't Settle for Less. Receive God's Best!

You have to learn how to RECEIVE God’s BEST.

The main reason we aren’t receiving His best is because we are willing to settle for less
Very few are committed to God’s best.  We have been influenced more by the world than by God’s Word and “dumbed down” to accept far less than what God has provided. As long as you can live with less than God’s best, you will. 

You have to get sick and tired of being sick and tired before you will aggressively pursue God’s best. You have to have a holy dissatisfaction with mediocrity before you can experience all that God has for you. It doesn’t happen accidentally or automatically. If you don’t pursue it, you won’t get it.

Everything in our fallen world naturally goes from good to bad. Things don’t get better without effort. We have to seek to find, knock to get the door opened, and ask before we receive  (Matt. 7:7). We must raise our sights and aim higher. Most people are shooting at nothing and hitting it every time.

Jeremiah 29:11 says, “I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end [hope and a future, New International Version]

When the Lord spoke to Jeremiah to write these words, Israel was devastated. The city of Jerusalem had been destroyed, and many people had been taken captive to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar. Thoughts of peace were probably the last thing on their minds. But Jeremiah went on to say in verses 12-13“Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”

I’ve had people tell me they prayed and believed God but that nothing happened. These scriptures promise otherwise. So, who’s right? I choose to believe God is true. The key is, we have to seek with ALL our hearts. That’s the missing element. We have to reach a point where we won’t live with anything less than God’s best.

That attitude is missing in the lives of far too many Christians. The bar of expectations, even within the church, has been lowered in regards to healing, finances, and more.There is such a fear that someone might be disappointed and, therefore, condemned that many ministers have been teaching people to settle for less and avoid the disappointment.

I am not trying to condemn anyone. We have all been raised in and influenced by an ungodly culture. And nobody learns how to receive God’s best overnight. It’s a process, but we need to begin moving in that direction. I haven’t arrived there either, but I have left and am on my way. God has far more for all of us than we are experiencing.

Have You Found Your Destiny?

Have You Found Your Destiny?

God has called us, Freedom Christian Center of Fort Mill, to build a House of Unconditional Love at the Upper Room. Just as the Marines are looking for a few good men we are looking for those who have a tremendous love for the lost.

Our world needs revival like never before. We are looking for Intercessors who who will become desperate enough to answer the call of Ezekiel and stand in the gap. Fasting and prayer will precipitate the latter rain that will fall upon the earth. Will you answer that call?

God will never call us to do something small and safe-we don't need God for that. Come worship with us on Sunday mornings at 11 am see if God would have you be a part of the army He is raising up.

Please join us: 8409, Regent Parkway, Fort Mill, SC 29615.

Understanding Grace and Faith

We can become so familiar with a certain passage of scripture that we don't really know what it says. We don't pay attention to it anymore because it has become so common to us. Ephesians 2:8-9 has become one such passage for many believers.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

There are some profound truths revealed here, one of which is that we are saved by grace through faith.

The body of Christ is basically divided into two groups: Those who emphasize grace (what God does) and those who emphasize faith (what we do).

One group preaches that everything is totally up to God.  They say, "Everything is determined by the sovereignty of God. It's whatever He chooses." The other group teaches, "No, you have to do this and that, and this and that."  

Those who preach man's responsibility will normally say that those who teach that it's just all up to God are totally wrong. Those who preach that it's all up to God will teach against those who say man has some responsibility in the matter.

You might phrase this issue differently, but it all comes down to the question, "What do I do—what part is God's part, and what part is mine?"

God's Word clearly teaches a balance between grace and faith.

Even though the body of Christ typically divides into two camps—one emphasizing what God has to do, and the other emphasizing what we have to do—Ephesians 2:8-9 says that we are saved by grace through faith. We aren't saved by one or the other.

True Christianity

Jesus has already paid for your sins.The extent of your sin or how good you've been are not the issue. There is only one sin that separates you from God, and that is failing to believe in Jesus (John 16:9).

Salvation comes down to one thing: will you accept what Jesus has done for you?

False Christianity and false religions teach that you have to try to maintain your own goodness and somehow earn relationship with God, but it can't be done. Imagine the time when you will stand before God. If He asks, "Why should I accept you into heaven instead of banishing you to an eternity in hell," what are you going to say?


I was a good person?
I wore a saffron robe?
I went to church and paid my tithes?
I read the Bible and tried to be as holy as I could?


Any of those answers will cause you to be rejected and sent to hell.
The only correct answer is, "I put my faith in Jesus."


You might have lived a good life, but without Jesus you can't be saved.
And who wants to be the best sinner that ever went to hell?

If you try to stand before God in your own goodness, you are going to come up short.   All of us have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. The only thing that will make you worthy to enter heaven is that Jesus paid for your sins, and you have claimed Him to be your Lord and Savior. You have to put your faith in the goodness of God through Jesus. Everyone who trusts in Jesus will be made in right standing with God. Anyone attempting to trust in their own goodness will never be able to live up to God's standard of perfection. The only way to have relationship with God is to have it through faith in Jesus.

Relationship with God is something you receive; it isn't something you earn. When you accept Jesus, you get changed on the inside—you are born again from above. Now, true Christianity does preach that you should live a good life, but a good life isn't the root of your relationship with God—it's the fruit of relationship with Him. You start living holy as a result of having a relationship with God, not as a means of obtaining it. Those are subtle distinctions, but the difference is profound, and it is what divides true Christianity from every other religion in this world.

Salvation and eternal life are all about Jesus. Some people try to say that Jesus was a great example of love, but that He is only one way to God. Jesus isn't a way; He is the only way to the Father. The Bible says,

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12 

To be in right relationship with God you have yield to Him. You have to submit yourself to Him in order to receive relationship.
