Don’t Give Up On God What I believe the Lord would have me share with you today is a verse that I have often read, but hadn’t realized its full implications. It was written by King David. “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord … Read more

Having it Your Way is Pricy Years ago, Burger King started their new slogan, “Have it your way.” The price of the hamburger was slightly higher but it put Burger King on the fast food map. But having it our way doesn’t work when it comes to the things of the Lord. The nation of … Read more

Bad Blood When there is some sort of feud going on between individuals, it is said that there is bad blood between them. It’s a feeling of intense hatred. Spiritually what you might say is that before we came to know Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord there was bad blood between God and … Read more

Exercise for a Healthy Heart Your heart is a muscle, and with exercise it gets stronger and healthier allowing you to live a more fulfilling life. This is also true for our spiritual lives. The Apostle Paul said, “For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the … Read more

The Overcoming Church Jesus is now about to explain where the power came to overcome the powers of darkness. He asked His disciples, “But who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15) Peter said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Matthew 16:16) Jesus went on to reveal how Peter didn’t … Read more

Silent Praise Sorry for the lateness of this devotional, but as I was reading Psalm 65 in the New American standard, the first verse just jumped out, and it had me wondering, “How could this be?” “There will be silence before You, and praise in Zion, O God, and to You the vow will be … Read more

High Alert DEFCON is America’s alert status warning system that puts its armed forces in an appropriate state of readiness. And while currently we’re at DEFCON 5, which designates peacetime military readiness, spiritually, Jesus says we’re at DEFCON 1, or maximum readiness, not only because we’re constantly at war with the enemy of our souls, … Read more

A Top-Notch Fellow What exactly does it take to get on God’s good side? While this seems a little self-serving, let’s be honest, that’s what we all want. In today’s devotional reading it reveals one such fellow, Hezekiah. “He trusted in the Lord God of Israel, so that after him was none like him among … Read more

We’ll Receive Whatever We Give Whenever we discuss the topic of giving, many Christians run away. But the doctrine of giving is important to our spiritual health and welfare. Giving isn’t tied exclusively to finances; our giving entails every area of our lives. Jesus makes it clear that we’ll receive in like manner to our … Read more

Waiting on God Many believers in Christ are “waiting” on the Lord, but they are doing it the wrong way. “Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31). The focus … Read more

All Bark and No Bite The saying, “All bark and no bite,” likens people to dogs that continue to bark but they never carry out their threat. When someone is all bark and no bite they proclaim to be one thing, like being tough, when in reality they’re the exact opposite, like a marshmallow. It’s … Read more

Bringing Christ Into Our Crisis Daniel and his companions committed themselves to living a godly life. Right after they arrived in Babylon they were presented with a dilemma.

Tapping Into Success If we want to prosper, that is, if we want to succeed in this world in whatever we do, then we need to take the way prescribed by God. The Psalmist gives us this way saying, “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in … Read more

Get to Know the Holy Spirit We want the experience of the Holy Spirit, but not necessarily the relationship. Like sex, we want the experience but not necessarily the relationship the true experience requires. The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead, and as a person He can be grieved and hurt when … Read more

Don’t Let Hindrances Stop You “Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the desert … Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside.” (Luke 4:1, 14) Jesus was well received throughout the whole countryside, … Read more

The Joy of God’s Discipline As parents we discipline our children, not out of hate or anger, but because of our love for them, and because we want to protect them from future wrong and dangerous behavior. But our discipline needs to be measured with the spirit of compassion. And once the discipline is over, … Read more

It’s Time To Get Right The Lord desires that we do some heart changing and soul cleansing in a beautiful and haunting Scripture.
