Prayer Helps Whenever you find yourself in times of trial, afflicted and in torment, what you need to know is that you’re never more than a prayer away. We need to come to the realization that on our own we have no power over what happens in our lives. The Apostle Paul said, “We were … Read more

A Door of Hope When we go through the valleys of life, the Lord doesn’t sit up in heaven saying, “I hope they get through.” God isn’t apathetic to our situation; instead He will guide and protect us. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in … Read more

Speak What You Eat There’s an old saying, “You are what you eat.” But we also speak what we spiritually eat. Jesus said, “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of … Read more

What Will You Seek God sent a message of courage to Jeremiah’s scribe, Baruch. He was feeling discouraged saying, “I am overwhelmed with trouble! Haven’t I had enough pain already? And now the LORD has added more! I am weary of my own sighing and can find no rest” (Jeremiah 45:3). He was discouraged because … Read more

A Mother’s Day Devotional “A Mother’s Love” One of the primary characteristics of a mother is a mother’s love. A mother loves her child no matter what they do. If you think about it, right from the beginning, children do nothing to deserve love. When they are in the womb they cause discomfort, morning sickness, … Read more

Desiring God’s Presence As believers in Jesus Christ, there is one thing we desire above anything and everything else in our present state of distress, and that is the presence of God. Our prayer would match Isaiah’s, who cried out, “Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble … Read more

Let the Holy Spirit Move In The problem with the church, and hence believers, is the same thing that Paul saw in the Corinthians church, and that is they were more controlled by the world and their sinful desires than by the Holy Spirit. “You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling … Read more

A Languishing Soul It’s not easy to wait patiently, especially when it comes to our need to wait upon the Lord. Psalm 119: 81-88 says, “My soul faints for Your salvation, but I hope in Your word. My eyes fail from searching Your word, saying, ‘When will You comfort me?’ … Yet I do not … Read more

Faith To Hang Tough There will be times when our faith is tested; not only in God, but also in God’s calling and where He has called us carry out His ministry. Consider Abraham’s testimony. “By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an … Read more

Love And Unity Needed If a believer says they love God but hates their brothers and sisters in Christ, then they are liars and they are not disciples of Jesus (1 John 3:14-15). And if anyone says they’re a believer, but cause division within the church, then they aren’t serving God, but their own appetites … Read more

The Art of Ending Well Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said, “Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending.” We often think of being disciplined or having self-control as an enemy, or an unwanted guest, when in reality it’s our friend, because it enables us to be the best we can possibly … Read more

The Sabbath We live in a 24/7 culture with cellphones and the Internet to help us stay connected and assessable. But even with all our new inventions we always seem to be in a hurry and running out of time. And so we push ourselves to the edge, squeezing every second out of our work, … Read more

The Duck Test The Duck Test: “If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.” Unfortunately it isn’t that easy when it comes to what is and isn’t Christian. They may look like a church, use Christian verbiage in their sermons, prominently display … Read more

It’s All About the Finish A good start isn’t always enough to see us across the finish line. Solomon started out great. When God asked Solomon what he wanted most, instead of asking for long life or great wealth, he asked for wisdom to lead God’s people. Because of this unselfish request God gave him … Read more

It’s Not About Feelings Far too often we live our Christian lives based upon what or how we feel. But God and His word, the Bible, never tell us to fulfill our Christian duty based upon what or how we may feel on a particular day. So we may not be in the mood. God … Read more

Where Will You Be Sunday? In our Western culture Sunday is no longer believed to be a day where we go to church; instead it is a day of rest and recreation. Church isn’t even a blip on people’s radar. Barbeques and football are what’s on most people’s mind, even those who call themselves Christians. … Read more

The Judgment of God Jesus said the Laodicean church was neither hot nor cold; instead, members were lukewarm, falsely believing they had everything. But Jesus quickly quashed this sort of thinking. In Revelation 3:17, Jesus said, “You say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are … Read more

Turn and Live “For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign LORD. Repent and live” (Ezekiel 18:32) Repentance involves our mental acceptance of the fact that we have sinned and our sins have not only affected others but have hurt and wounded God. This should produce within us a deep … Read more

Hell Is No Laughing Matter Hell is A place of eternal separation In 2 Thessalonians 1:9, Paul said that all those who do not know God nor obey the gospel of Jesus Christ that they “shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power.” This … Read more

God’s Secret Weapon As a spiritual discipline, fasting has fallen out of grace and favor within today’s church. We hear little about it from the pulpit, and we see it practiced even less. It’s accepted as doctrine, but it’s not being applied. Why is it so important? Because the human heart hasn’t changed, it’s still … Read more
