  • The Wonderful Counselor

    10/28/2020 In Isaiah 9:6, the Bible calls Jesus, the Messiah, the Wonderful Counselor. Do you know why that name is so great and comforting for us? Because life can be very hard at times. Life can beat you to the ground and leave you for dead. Troubles and trials can come like a tornado and leave us devastated and bewildered. And in those time, we desperately need a wise friend who loves us and can counsel us to help us get through the toughest of times. Continue reading…

  • Defeat the Lies of the Devil

    10/27/2020 In Psalm 15, King David writes these words, “Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell on Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.” Do you have thoughts that build you up in the Lord and encourage your faith ... or are your thoughts those that tear you down and fill your heart with fear and woe? Continue reading…

  • It Takes Practice

    10/26/2020 Practice is essential to the Christian life. Paul told the Christians in Philippi "The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you." Philippians 4:9. You see, it is not enough to know the truth. We must apply the truth to our lives so we can receive the benefit and blessing from the truth. Continue reading…

  • The Happiness Confusion

    10/23/2020 Many people are confused about happiness. They equate happiness with money and materialism. To them, happiness is a million dollars. Other people equate happiness with good physical health. To them, happiness is an in-shape body hitting on all eight cylinders. Still, to other, happiness is a big promotion, or graduation, or reaching a milestone. But the Bible says in Ecclesiastes 2:25: For who can eat and who can have enjoyment without Him? Scripture makes it clear that true happiness comes when you and I are right with God. Continue reading…

  • A New Wanter

    10/22/2020 Years ago, I had a man share his testimony with me. He said when he received Christ, he got his ‘wanter’ changed. I said what? He said, “Before I was a Christian, I wanted to sin, to party, to indulge the flesh. But after I gave my life to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, my wanter changed. Now I wanted to please God and follow Him. I didn’t always do it perfectly, but my wanter had changed.” Continue reading…

  • A Friend to the End

    10/21/2020 How do you see God? Do you see God as a king? He is surely a King. Do you see God as a father? He is surely a father. But He is also a friend. Proverbs 18:24 says, “there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” That friend is Jesus. He will be there for you through thick and thin. Continue reading…

  • Choose to Rejoice

    10/20/2020 The Bible says in Psalm 118:24, “This is the day which the Lord has made, WE WILL rejoice and be glad in it.” Regardless of the trials and problems, you and I can make the choice to rejoice. We can make the choice to trust God and keep our eyes on Him. Now it is really easy to focus on the problems. Continue reading…

  • The Gumby God

    10/19/2020 A lot of people like to make God out to be what they want Him to be--all love with no standards and no commandments. In their minds, God is nothing more than a glorified bell hop who is at their service to obey their orders. He is like Gumby, moldable and bendable to our selfish hopes, desires, and dreams. Continue reading…

  • Power Failure

    10/16/2020 The Christian life is a life of power. Jesus said, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you” (Acts 1:8). Hmm. If we have power from the Holy Spirit, why do we often feel so powerless? Why do we have power failures in the Christian life? Three likely reasons. Number One. We stray from the Lord.

  • Always Thankful

    10/15/2020 The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5: 18 “In everything give thanks, for this is God's will in Christ Jesus concerning you.” Thankfulness is an attitude of gratitude that pleases God. But how do you get an attitude like that? I mean, what if life has kicked you in the teeth, and the last thing you feel is thankful? To stay thankful, remember these three things: 1. Remember that God doesn’t owe you anything. Continue reading…
