Luke 8:5-8 “A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. 6 And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.7 […]

A Happy State of Heart Psalm 119:147-148, “I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in thy word. Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in thy word.” I have been meditating for weeks now on Psalm 119 in preparation for this year’s International Conference. I see the psalmist […]

Today, we will look at Genesis chapter one again and highlight some words that will remind us of God’s care for you and me. “O, how He loves you and me,” the song writer penned. We love Him because He first loved us. Today’s blog is intended to give you a fresh look at some […]

Wrong Number or Wrong Meditations?

I recently heard a story about a couple in Nashville, who had been out shopping one day and returned home to find a message on their answering machine. It was obviously a wrong number, as the message was left for an organization that provides food for the hungry at Christmas time. The woman on the […]

2 Corinthians 11:1-3 (1) Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. (2) For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. (3) But I fear, […]

2 Corinthians 13:5, “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your ownselves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?” The moment a person is saved, the precious Holy Spirit of God comes in to dwell. He will never leave nor forsake the believer. […]

Praying for Pastors

1Th 5:25 Brethren, pray for us. If the apostle needed the intercessions of the saints, surely your pastor needs your prayers as well. Prayer is an act of faith. Believing God is and can work His work through us today. Prayer is being dependant on God. Prayer is the offensive weapon for the believer. “Prayer […]

Number 1

An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin. Proverbs 21:4 The world is going crazy looking out for number one. It seems to be the cry of the day. The path of the wicked is lit by their high he loved and proud heart. But the path of […]

Thank God, I am Free…Free…Free!

Often I will hear someone try to help another person overcome a besetting sin by saying all they need to do is “resist the devil”. This is a much misquoted verse from the book of James. The devil is not going to flee from us so easily; he is not the least bit afraid of […]
