You may think your weaknesses are something to hide, but they're actually something God wants to use in your life. For this to happen, you’ll need to learn to recognize and respect your limitations and to trust in God’s power to accomplish his purpose for you.
Nothing is more discouraging than trying to please everybody. If you're always trying to be something you're not, you’ll always be stressed and discouraged. To defeat discouragement, simply be who God made you to be. Join Pastor Rick as he teaches why you don't have to be perfect for God to bless you, but you do have to be authentic.
The Bible is worthless to you when it’s sitting on a shelf at home. But with God’s Word in your mind, it becomes a powerful weapon to fight every temptation Satan can throw at you. In this message, Pastor Rick explains why memorizing God’s Word will help you overcome the persistent temptations in your life.
Don’t be intimidated by Satan. As a Christian, the Holy Spirit’s power lives in you. You’ve got God’s Word to give you truth. You’ve got Jesus who is the Truth. The Bible says you have everything you need to overcome your temptations.
You are far more vulnerable to temptation when you’re experiencing negative emotions. Satan knows what they are and will try to use them for your destruction. Shouldn’t you know what they are, too?
You never need to fear the future. God’s goodness and mercy have always followed you and will follow you forever. Join Pastor Rick Warren as he teaches from Psalm 23 about how the Good Shepherd keeps you safely on track as you follow him.
Are you tired of being overwhelmed? God wants to move you from being overwhelmed to overflowing. In Psalm 23:5, King David says, “My cup overflows” (NIV). But what does that mean for you today? In this message, Pastor Rick Warren teaches how staying connected to Jesus every day leads to a life overflowing with God’s goodness.
When you have the mind of Christ, you will be so secure in your identity, your purpose, and God's presence in your life that you won't need to look to other people for approval.
Jesus was always aware of God's presence because he knew who he was and he knew his purpose. That means, when you learn to think like Jesus, you’ll become sensitive to the truth that God is always present in your life. You’ll know your purpose in life, and you’ll see how God is supporting you to succeed in your mission.
Join Pastor Rick as he continues to explain how knowing and applying biblical truth leads us to the life God wants us to live.
God’s truth always leads to life. That’s why the Bible teaches us to take every thought captive, so we can live the way God wants us to live.
Anytime you sin, you’re believing the lie that you’ll be better off going against God’s will. That is never true! Learn why the Bible says it’s important to think about what you think about.
King David knew what it meant to be attacked emotionally, verbally, and physically. But he found that, in the middle of the attack, God blessed him spiritually. In this message, Pastor Rick Warren uses Psalm 23 to answer this question: How do you trust God to be your defender?
As a believer, your goal is to learn to think like Jesus. This starts by seriously thinking about the things you think about. Learn why it is important to let God guide your thoughts.
When you give your life away for Jesus, you can’t fail. Join Pastor Rick as he explains how you’ll begin to fully live when you do this.
