Beware the 12 D’s of the Devil

Have you ever wondered why Christians sometimes fall into deception and make shocking decisions? I am convinced that it’s directly related to the twelve subtle, progressive steps the devil leads us through to destroy us. It does not happen overnight, but through small steps, not unlike the proverbial frog in the kettle of water that [...]

Being thankful is supernatural

Grumblers have a hard time hearing God speak. The Bible says, “Do everything without complaining” (Phil. 2:14). It’s our natural tendency to complain; we all do it at one time or another.
