The Church of Jesus Christ is rooted in the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s vision for mankind as communicated through scripture. It represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.
On the last day of September, it's safe to say that it's officially fall, and a new season always feels like a small new beginning. Maybe you're setting some goals to accomplish before the end of 2016. If that's the case, then keep today's Good Word in mind — whatever our plans, they should fall in line with God's commandments, and we should trust Him to keep His promises. We look forward to hearing your testimonies of how God "brought it to pass" in your life.
“For the Lord will be your confidence, And will keep your foot from being caught.” Proverbs 3:26
When I look up the word “confidence” in the dictionary, it means “faith or belief that one will act in a right, proper, or effective way.” A big part of society sends the message that confidence is found only in ourselves. I know that is not true. My confidence should be found in the Lord.
Proverbs 3:26 says that the Lord will be our confidence. How powerful! I know that I shouldn't have more confidence in myself than the Lord. That’s when pride can sneak in — and sin is right behind it.
