  • Spiritual Amnesia

    07/8/2020 When God parted the Red Sea to deliver His Old Testament people from Pharaoh and his armies, God performed a magnificent and unforgettable miracle. And the people were in awe of God’s power. BUT, within three days, God's wilderness wandering people ran out of water, and they began to grumble and gripe about it. Continue reading…

  • Happy Abiding

    07/7/2020 Are you frustrated today? Do you feel burned out and worn out? Has the Christian life become a heavy burden, drudgery instead of joy? If you’re getting weary in doing good, then remember the principle of ‘abiding’ found in John 15:1-11. You see, your only real job as a Christian is to ‘abide in the vine.’ Branches bear fruit not by sweating and straining and fretting and trying harder and harder to "produce." Continue reading…

  • Prepare Your Heart

    07/6/2020 Have you noticed that whenever you go to the doctor, the doctor always checks your heart? It's because your heart is critical to your well-being. And just as it is in the physical realm, it's also in the spiritual realm. And God wants your heart to be completely His. The Bible warns us not to let our heart get “hardened by the deceitfulness of sin” but, we're to “prepare our heart" for God. Continue reading…

  • Don't Be Afraid

    07/3/2020 When facing the unexpected storms and fiery trials of life, it is critical to remember that as a Christian, God is always with you. You can trust God to see you through every difficult and scary circumstance. In the last chapter Paul ever wrote, he said, “The Lord will deliver me from every evil deed and will bring me safely to His heavenly kingdom; to Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen” Continue reading…

  • Power in Surrender

    07/2/2020 When Jesus appeared to his disciples after His resurrection, he said these words in Luke 24:49 "And behold, I am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you; but you are to stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high" But have you ever wondered, "where is the power?"

  • Don't Be Chicken

    06/30/2020 When I was a kid, I liked the movie, THE GHOST AND MR. CHICKEN. Don Knotts was the main character. He was challenged to spend the night in a haunted house. Well, he made it through the night, but he was almost scared to death! Literally. Are you afraid? Even the great apostle, Paul, struggled in this area. Continue reading…

  • A Better Plan

    06/29/2020 My daughter Amy taught me something that has totally changed my view concerning disappointments in life. If you are walking with God and something doesn't come to pass as you were hoping and praying it would, just know this: if it had been a good thing for you, He would have given it to you. Psalm 84:11 says, "For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; no good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly." Continue reading…

  • Grace and Truth

    06/26/2020 Have you heard the age-old expression, “Love the sinner, but hate the sin?” Well, the new teaching in some Christian circles is "love the sinner and the sin." The argument goes like this: if you don't embrace the person, sin and all, you are not really expressing the love of God to them. Hmm. Does that really coincide with Scripture? Does God love the sinner and his sin? No. Continue reading…

  • Let Go of the Wheel

    06/25/2020 When I was about 8 years old, my little sister and I went to a carnival for the first time in our lives and our first ride was on the iconic Ferris Wheel - the tallest ride of them all! When they put us in the little Ferris Wheel car there was a steering wheel. I grabbed the wheel and nervously held on. When we started up, the car we were placed in did't rotate like the other cars and when the wheel went up we began to go upside down. Continue reading…
