You Will Not Fall!

  God is within her, she will not fall.  He will help her at break of dawn. (Psalm 46:5)   When a mother eagle builds her nest, she starts with thorns, broken branches, sharp rocks, and a number of other items.  Then she lines the nest with a thick padding of wool and feathers. This makes it soft and comfortable for her baby eaglets. By the time the growing eaglets reach flying age, the comfort of the nest make them quite reluctant to leave. That’s when the mother eagle starts stirring up the nest. The mother eagle strategically begins removing …

Accept the Crumbs and God Will Make Loaves

  It’s amazing how sometimes we think that God owes us so much more than we deserve.  We possess bigger homes, better jobs, bigger cars and even more money.   How is it that we fall short of seeing the blessings in the smaller things? A remarkable story is told in Matthew 15:21-28, when the Canaanite woman pours from her needy soul in desperation of her demon possessed daughter.  She wasn’t searching for the finer things of life. She was only searching for a man who could provide her with what she needed most.  As she fell upon her knees, she …

Guidance in Uncertainty

  The Lord directs the steps of the Godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. (Psalm 37:23) Would you like to sit down and have a heart to heart talk with God? Perhaps He could tell you the exact plan that He has for your life. Or maybe He could lay it all out in black and white; marking out a path so you will know exactly what lies ahead. Well, life doesn’t work that way.  God doesn’t mark out a clear pathway for our lives, nor does He provide us with turn by turn directions.  Instead, He …

Dressed to Kill

  This is not a wrestling match against a human opponent. We are wrestling with rulers, authorities, the powers who govern this world of darkness, and spiritual forces that control evil in the heavenly world.  (Ephesians 6:12) The apostle Paul very well knew that we would engage in spiritual warfare, therefore he affirms that our spiritual battles are constant with an enemy who is crafty and full of evil. The enemy is masterful and cunning and will go to any measure to disarm us from our faith.  He comes against us with different methods, and if he fails at one, …

A Place of Preparation

  No training, correction, or discipline seems pleasant at the time it is being administered to us, but afterwards we come to appreciate it. (Hebrews 12:11)   Have you ever found yourself in a place where you didn’t necessarily want to be? Often times when God wants to take us from where we are, to where He wants us to be, He’ll place us in certain situations that will truly test our faith. He rarely takes us to where He wants us to be without training, correcting and disciplining us. He takes the good and the bad, the ups and …

You Can’t Hurry God, You Just Have to Wait

      “Jairus, a synagogue leader, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with Him to come to his house and heal his little girl” (Luke 8:41-42).   Jairus was desperate and we are told that he repeatedly begged Jesus.  If there ever was a time for Jesus to hurry, perhaps getting to Jairus’ house was one of them.  However, Jesus agreed to Jairus’ request so they set out toward his home. While pressing through the crowd, Jairus’ request was delayed by the interruption of a courageous and desperate woman who also needed healing.  Time was not a factor …

If He woke you up and you have breath Rejoice, He is don’t done with you. He has a plan fo your life, now is not the time to give up and give in. Isaiah 41:9-10 says …

Empty Void

    We go throughout life searching to fill that empty void. You try to do everything to fill it only to realize that will never be satisfied with what the world gives you,  You will never be satisfied. We live in a world of darkness where they think evil is good and being good is evil. Growing up I never got to go out and when I did felt so out of place. I felt like I was the outcast. No friend, relationship, alcohol, or anything could fill the Void as Jesus can. John 17:6 says  “They are not …

Hello Devotional

      Be ready in season and out of season. 2 Timothy 2:14 says “Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching”. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near” Always …

Called to Love

      We are called to love another not just with words but with our actions. 1 John 3:18 says “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” Don’t just tell His children that you love them we have to show them by our actions. Call and check on your family, friends coworkers, and whoever the Lord puts in your path. Do a small act of kindness, show them that they are loved. Many people come from dysfunctional families and hear that they are loved and never get to experience what true …

Jesus Is The Vine

    We serve a mighty God who brings dead things alive. He is the vine and we are the branches. Picture a vine tree that has no leaves and messed up branches that were you and me before we met Christ. We all were like vine trees with no leaves but not producing any fruit, spiritually dead surrounded by darkness. When Christ came Into our lives He restored redeemed and He set us free. As we stay connected to the vine we begin to produce fruit when we are connected and rooted in Jesus. God sent His one and …
