Lying and Dishonesty

Dishonesty comes from a root fear of not being adequate or enough. Which is why you must remind yourself that it's not about what people think or being perfect. Live in the fullness of who God made you to be and be honest with those in your life.

Anger and Judgment

When things are out of control, anger can set in, leading to disappointment and confusion. The first step to freedom is to surrender to God, asking for his way instead of your own. Certainly, be passionate in life but with open hands to the Lord.


Often we justify bitterness or rejection of relationships, but it poisons us and can even spread into our good relationships. God wants us to be healed so that we can treat other people with the same kind of love he has for them. He wants us to walk through life unfettered by resentment.

Past Resentment

Resentment can put distance between us and others and even lead to broken relationships. If we are no longer close to someone, it's important to consider why. God calls us to be agents of peace in a troubled world, and bridging past hurts can be one step toward obeying that call.

Receiving Criticism

Often our response to criticism is fight or flight, lashing out or running away from people. If we find our value and security in God, though, we will be able to sort through criticism with clear eyes and a discerning mind. This godly response will not only preserve our relationships but also help others heal and grow too.

Dealing with Criticism and Anger

When we suspect that we are inadequate or if we have been wounded by unloving words in the past, then we may often find that our response to criticism is fear and anger. If we allow God to heal those wounds, we will find peace and discover that we are able to have healthier relationships with other people.

Defining Abundant Life

How do we define success in life? Gary Wilkerson talks about how answering that question will either lead us on a path of constant disappointment or one of unshakable peace. We must redefine abundant life in God's terms.

The Issues of the Heart

What naturally comes out of our heart, especially in times of stress? Gary Wilkerson talks about how Jesus wants to transform our hearts so that we overflow generously with the fruits of the Spirit.

In the Middle of God's Love

Living as if we are dearly beloved children of God will change our entire approach to our heavenly Father and our lives. Gary Wilkerson urges everyone to remind ourselves that we are deeply loved because doing that each day can shape that day in new and beautiful ways.

Live Fully for Jesus

Gary Wilkerson opens this 86 Seconds devotional with a key question: "Do you focus more on what people think of you or what God thinks of you?" He explores how our hearts' motivations can chain us to others' opinions or free us to more abundant life in God.
