Choices

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.”       ~   Deuteronomy 30:19                           Have you ever thought about the power of choice?  How the choices you make can actually change your life for the better or…

Financial Blessings

“And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of Host.  And all the nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land.”             ~      Malachi 3:11,12                   God is very much interested in…

His Mercy Endures Forever!

“O give thanks unto the LORD; for He is good: for His mercy endures forever.”                          ~  Psalm 136:1           Let me challenge you to read the entirety of Psalm 136 and highlight every verse that says, “His mercy endures forever.”  What you’ll find out is that you’d have to highlight all 26 verses of Psalm 136 because…

Expect A Good Year!

“But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water from the rains of heaven.  A land which the LORD careth for: the eyes of the LORD thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year unto the end of the year.”               ~   Deuteronomy 11:12…..             As we begin the year 2021 it’s good…

The Peace of God

“Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” Luke 21:26…… I remember years ago when CNN introduced 24 hour news. I thought, “Wow, isn’t this great!” I now look back and realize it wasn’t so great after all. I…

The LORD Our Healer

“…for I am the LORD that healeth thee.” Exodus 15:26….. This verse uses one of God’s many compound names found in the Old Testament. These compound names reveal His character and His provision. The compound name used in this verse is Jehovah Rapha. The name Jehovah Rapha means “the LORD who heals you.” God has revealed Himself as…

Be the light!

“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light to all that are in the house.” Matthew 5:14,15…… You’ll notice in this passage of scripture that Jesus tells us that we’re to shed light in two places – the…

Enter Into The Holiest

“Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the Blood of Jesus,….” Hebrews 10:19…… Have you ever thought about how we enter the Holiest? We don’t physically go in there. I believe one of the ways we enter the Holiest is by our words. Our words of faith, our words of worship, and our words of prayer go into the Holiest…

Victory!

“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57…….. I learned early in my Christian life that if I was going to walk in victory I would need to do two things: I would need to stay full of the Holy Spirit and I would need to keep my mind renewed with God’s thoughts. Victory has already been…

Let the Word fight your battles!

“For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 NKJV……. One of the phrases that has helped me a lot over the years is, “Let the Word fight your battles for…
