Let Him Win

Proverbs 21:30-31 (TLB) No one, regardless of how shrewd or well-advised he is, can stand against the Lord. Go ahead and prepare for the conflict, but victory comes from God.

Great Gain

I Timothy 6:6 (AMP) But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God].

Casting

Psalm 55:22 (AMP) Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken (slip, fall, fail).

Knowing Love

Romans 8:35-36 (NLT) Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love?

A Gift for You

All In The Waiting

Psalm 27:13-14 (NLT) Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living. Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord. Did you know that David was thought to be 10 – 15 years of age when anointed…

Unlearning Fear

2 Timothy 1:7 (CSB) For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but one of power, love, and sound judgment. Did you know that human beings are born with just two innate fears? The fear of falling and fear of loud noises. That means that every other thing that produce fear in us is a…

Daily Destiny

Esther 4:14 (ESV) For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” The story of Esther is well-known by Christians…
