My Spirit Prays

What a wonderful communion, that between my spirit & the Spirit of God! That in utterances unspeakable I can share with God & find help, peace, & strength. That in words I, myself, do not understand, I can plead with the Lord about that which is to come but not yet seen. I thank God…

3 Things You Should Never Believe

1. Never believe that God has stopped wanting to use you. 2. Never believe that your function in the body is not important. 3. Never believe that you are past your use by date. God is not finished with you! Get yourself back in the game and give yourself to the things of God once…

The Purest Form of Love

“But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail.””‭‭Luke‬ ‭22:32‬ ‭NLT‬‬ If Jesus’ example is anything to go by, and I possibly think it should be, then prayer should be one of the most important activities of our day. We read throughout the Gospels how Jesus set aside time…

Nothing Can Separate You From His Love

Let your spirit be lifted and encouraged in the knowledge that God is with you and that Jesus Christ is living in you. Don’t let the things of the day take charge of your heart and mind but look to God the author and the finisher of your faith. There is nothing that can separate…

“Justified by faith…”

I remember hearing an old preacher explain it like this, being justified means that it is just-as-if-I’d never sinned. So by faith, in the same way that it was accounted to Abraham as righteousness, we are justified before God. The power of that justification is revealed in the peace that we have through the forgiveness…

Add Unending Love

“So devote yourselves to lavishly supplementing your faith with goodness, and to goodness add understanding, and to understanding add the strength of self-control, and to self-control add patient endurance, and to patient endurance add godliness, and to godliness add mercy toward your brothers and sisters, and to mercy toward others add unending love.” ‭‭2 Peter‬…

That’s Not Your Job

When talking with some people, it doesn’t matter what you say or how hard you try to convince they won’t believe you. The fact is, some people wouldn’t even believe if Jesus walked straight up to them in the street. Just remember when you’re sharing your faith, it’s not your job to get them saved,…

You’re Never Alone

Some people know about Jesus, they know about his death on the cross, but they’re still carrying their sins. Put them down. God has made a way for you to be free of all you’ve ever done wrong. Stop thinking you can do it on your own, your way isn’t working. When you stop to…

Better Than Life

Pray these words with me today: “O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. Because…

One in Seven Billion

Do you ever feel like just one of thousands of cars on the highway? Or maybe feel like your life could never amount to much because you’re just one of billions of people on the planet. This is where the enormity of God’s grace and love can be overwhelming. Because there’s not a single person…

Give Your Gift

When this thought came to me years ago I was contemplating the gifts that God gives to us. The talents, abilities, gifts, & things that each individual carries. The marks of God like fingerprints on our soul. The problem is, that I see so many people not using their gifts. Wasting the investment that God…
