TIME WITH GOD
David hungered for time alone with God. He looked forward to it the way we look forward to being with a beloved. When my oldest son was dating his wife-to-be, he would come in late and say, "Dad, I didn't know how late it was. The time just flew." That's the way it is with lovers. They want to be together and are never ready to part. Can you imagine a boy saying to his girl, "I would've come to pick you up sooner, but the evening news was on."? Neither can I. Lovers make time to be together.
Not only do those who are in love want to be together, they also find ways to communicate when they are apart. They'll write letters, or call, or send electronic mail…anything to stay in touch. Now let me ask you a question or two. Do you love God? Really love Him? Then do you make time to be alone with Him? Does that time drag, or does it seem to fly? Do you love to talk to Him, and listen carefully for His voice? When you pick up the Bible, which is God's love letter to you, do you hang on every word because you adore its Author?
If we say we love God but do not yearn to be with Him, maybe our love is not as strong as we think. Because you see, it's impossible to love God and not delight in time spent with Him, time spent reading His word, or listening for His voice. Make time for Him today.
As the deer pants for the water brooks, so my sould pants for Thee, O God.

“What happened to America?” How did the moral compass of our nation began to drift? It was when the American people began to believe some lies. If we hear a lie often enough and regularly enough from so many different arenas; we begin to believe it. That’s why Dr. Ed Young has taken the major step of preaching a candid 3-message series that lays bare the lies that American society… and even American believers… have come to accept as truth. Lies about morality, the role of the church, the role of government, the sanctity of life, and more.
As Dr. Young shows in this series, there are steps every believer can take to reestablish God’s truth in their home and community—steps we must take to rebuild a moral foundation upon which our nation can stand and flourish!
Contains 3 messages:Can morality be legislated? Is a fetus a baby? Should the church have a say in government?
