WHERE DO YOU PLACE YOUR SOUL?

WHERE DO YOU PLACE YOUR SOUL?

by Bill Elliff June 25, 2024

If we’re not careful, our souls can pull us away from intimacy with Christ and drive our lives. We can live soulish, carnal (fleshly) lives even though Christ is in us. This is the source of all our difficulties in the Christian life. So, how do we handle our souls?

ALL IN

ALL IN

by Bill Elliff April 30, 2024

To resist anywhere is to restrict everywhere. One private closet, one unsurrendered plot of ground, gives the devil a foothold he doesn’t deserve but will use to maximum advantage. This is why God is in the continual process with His children of helping them relax their hands on the whole.

ARE YOU GOVERNED BY GOD?

ARE YOU GOVERNED BY GOD?

by Bill Elliff January 05, 2024

It is the great tragedy and the source of all that is wrong with our world. Since the Garden, we have pridefully felt we could do a better job than our Creator. Our arrogance is at the root of our failure.

THE MAN WHO MOVES GOD

THE MAN WHO MOVES GOD

by Bill Elliff January 04, 2023

I’ve been sitting at the bedside of a great man in our church these last few days. He was always a good man, but for many years he didn’t pursue the Lord with all his heart. He would tell you that he loved many worthless things and that there was a core of deception in his life.

Over a decade ago, he came to the end of himself ...

THE BATTLE FOR CONTROL

THE BATTLE FOR CONTROL

by Bill Elliff January 02, 2023

It’s always the issue with every man and nation. Who is going to be king? Who is in control? Who leads? Who makes the decisions? The heartbeat of the devil is that he wants to be king. And the heartbeat of his temptation to us all is, "Don't let God rule you. Resist His authority over your life. He'll ruin your life, so keep resisting Him." This ancient spirit explains everything that is wrong with our world.

FACING THE PLACE OF SURRENDER

FACING THE PLACE OF SURRENDER

by Bill Elliff September 02, 2020

God places us purposefully in different environments for our good and His glory. Often, we don't see them as such, and we resist and run from these places. But, if we are to experience all God has, we should embrace each place, even if it’s hard.

THE LIFE-CHANGING SECRET

THE LIFE-CHANGING SECRET

by Bill Elliff August 26, 2020

We are born into this world separated from Christ. This is because of the fall of man through the choice of our First Parents. Starting in this position, the only resource we have is ourselves. We may rely on some other people, but in the end every decision, every activity, every step is comprised of our own choices made in our own power.

CHOOSING OUR GODS IN THIS CRISIS

CHOOSING OUR GODS IN THIS CRISIS

by Bill Elliff March 25, 2020

It has always been our great dilemma. From the beginning of time right up to this hour we have wrestled between which gods we will serve. We have been tempted since the Garden to find any alternative other than the Lord God Himself. And we have bitten hard and fast at the Enemies bait. He is unconcerned about which god we follow, just as long as we do not follow the Lord God Jehovah.

THE GOD WHO RELAXES OUR GRIP

THE GOD WHO RELAXES OUR GRIP

by Bill Elliff February 06, 2020

Is there anything you are unwilling to relinquish to God? To release? A job? A relationship? Possessions? Comfort? Popularity? A favorite habit or sin? Remember, God is not out to take from you, but to bring to its proper purpose all that you have. It would be good to pause right now and look down at your hands. Ask God to show you what you are gripping more tightly than you should.
