Not Just Favored, But the Favorite by Briana Lassiter

It’s God’s deep desire for us to know who we are to Him. We are the dreams from His heart that He brought to life, we are not just inheritors of all His promises and blessings, we are not just in a covenant familial relationship with almighty God; we are more than that. Each one of us is His favorite. In case you are questioning your place with Him today, or maybe you just don’t know what you are to Him or your place in His heart, I want you to know that there’s nothing He does not know about you, there’s nothing that is hidden from Him. He does not view you from your frame of reference, He sees you from His, everything you’ve ever been, and everything you will be, He sees. He treasures every moment you’ve made Him proud, and He cheers you on when you are struggling. He has never been passive toward you. No matter what you have seen or what your frame of reference has been, I want you …

The Triumph in the Trial by Briana Lassiter

When trials come at us it feels very overwhelming in the midst of it, and the unpredictability of whether or not we will make it through can try to weigh on us and make it feel impossible to ever come through at all, much less successfully. However before we ever even entered the trial, we have the predicted outcome already set, as it says in 2 Corinthians 2:14, “Now thanks be to God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the aroma of his knowledge by us in every place.” We can trust Him no matter what we are dealing with today, that in every situation He has an outcome of triumph for us. We can trust Him that whatever impossible situations we may face, nothing is impossible for Him, and He works all things together for our good because He loves us and has called us according to His purposes. Trust Him today to get you to your triumph, and allow the truth of what He Himself said to wash …

Making Friends with Failure by Briana Lassiter

This year I’ve had the joy of attending several different conferences that were very interactive and learning was encouraged by the act of doing. The first time I went I quietly observed and didn’t participate much. In a new group of people learning new things, it was not my comfort zone to participate and risk making mistakes and I left with a lot of unanswered questions. The next conference, Jesus helped me to get out of my comfort zone and be very hands-on, and because of my participation, I left with a very different learning experience. It can be extremely uncomfortable making mistakes, but when you are in a safe place where mistakes are part of the learning process that everyone benefits from as you learn, it accelerates your growth in a way that quietly refusing to participate never will. If you are experiencing fear of failure and it’s keeping you from your own learning process, be assured that your mistakes will not keep you from your Father or His approval of you. Divorce yourself …

The Blessing in Hunger: Faith for Creatives by Briana Lassiter

*Originally Published June 23, 2019 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.” ~MATTHEW 5:6 NKJV Do you find yourself bursting with questions, hard questions about God, about life, about purpose, about what is right and true? A lot of times we might feel discouraged while we wait for God to answer our hard questions, and yet here is our Savior saying, you are blessed for your hunger. And your hunger will be satisfied. Your questions will be answered. If you find yourself hungering after answers you have not received yet about who you are, who God is, or what your purpose is, you are blessed, and you can trust that He is building in you even now, the answers, and even now you are blessed to receive and know the truth of everything you’re hungry for. There may be a process to receiving, but you will still receive. He is a faithful God and He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it …
