To remain balanced, we need to focus upon God and not ourselves. He knows our needs better than we do and promises to always meet them in good time. Based on God’s past performance, how can we not have confidence in Him to provide for us in the future? If we are doing what God wants us to do, we have no reason to be anxious about what's going on all about us.

Growing in this spiritual understanding is necessary if we are to have a relationship with God (Jer. 24:7). And we must know His ways before we can walk in them (Ex. 33:13).

Are you trying to live the Christian life in your own strength by working hard to serve the Lord and become a better person? Such an approach leads only to fruitless exhaustion. To flourish and grow, a person must be completely dependent on Christ for spiritual nutrition. That involves drawing near to Him each morning through His Word and prayer and receiving His grace all day long.

What is the best present you've ever received? Is it something you still enjoy and value today? Sometimes the gifts we think are important--things we believe we must have--are quickly replaced the moment we find something else that catches our interest.

Learn how the Lord showed His unconditional love for you through the greatest gift ever given.

We've heard the story of Jesus and His birth a hundred times. The question is not how many times have you read it, but what lessons have you learned from it?

About Dr. Charles Stanley

Dr. Charles Stanley

September 25, 1932 – April 18, 2023

Dr. Charles F. Stanley was the senior pastor of First Baptist Church Atlanta for more than fifty years. He was also the founder of In Touch Ministries and a New York Times best-selling author, who wrote more than seventy books encouraging people to seek Jesus as their Savior and know Him as their wise and loving Lord. 

Known to audiences around the world through his wide-reaching TV and radio broadcasts, Stanley modeled his 65 years of ministry after the apostle Paul’s message in Acts 20:24: “Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about God’s mighty kindness and love.”
