Ignoring Life’s Dream Breakers One of the principles of staying young has to do with clinging to your dreams. Dr. Forrest never lost sight of this fact.

Dare to Trust Him! During a week long revival at the Gospel Tabernacle in New York City, Dr. Forrest could not shake the thought of a debt that had to be paid when he returned to Toccoa. He prayed that while he was there someone would offer financial help, but this had not happened. Then […]

Lights that Burn Brightly Luke records an incident where John the Baptist was answering questions from those who came to be baptized. “Some soldiers were questioning him saying, ‘And what about us, what shall we do?’ And he said to them, ‘Do not take money from anyone by force, or accuse anyone falsely, and be […]

A Present Good Often, when we think of Joseph’s situation in Egypt where he was “shut up in faith” to God, we pray to be more like him. We love reading the account of his steadfast spirit and unwavering hope. But when we drift out on to stormy seas, we cry, “Lord, take away this […]

Be Still There will be times when God has not given you the freedom to go forward or to turn back. He has only given you the reassurance that you can do one thing: stand still and know that He is God. For the most part, we are people of action. We hear a rumor […]

Proven Character “This thing has come from Me” (1 Kings 12:24). How many times have we faced difficulties and wondered, “Why did this happen? Surely, God knew all about it.” And He does. Job wrote, “He knows the way I take; when He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold” (23:10). These words […]
