The Path of Uncertainty

I John 4:16-18 (NLT)  We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on…

It’s Personal

I Peter 2:9-10 (NIV) But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have…

Be Bold

Acts 4:31 (AMP) And when they had prayed, the place where they were meeting together was shaken [a sign of God’s presence]; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness and courage.  A long time ago, my church friends and I would sneak away from our Sunday Night…

That Girl

Matthew 8:5-10 (NLT) When Jesus returned to Capernaum, a Roman officer came and pleaded with him, “Lord, my young servant lies in bed, paralyzed and in terrible pain.” Jesus said, “I will come and heal him.” But the officer said, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come into my home. Just say the word from where…

Life in Proper Context

Romans 10:17 (NKJV) So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Faith increases when I have the proper view of God and a proper view of the world. The world is not a series of accidents that exploded into the chaotic state of affairs that it is today. The world and all…

Why Jesus?

Hebrews 12:2 (ESV) Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him…

Simple Trust

John 3:16 (AMP) “For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life.  John 3:16 is probably the most well-known and highly exploited Bible verse of all time. Rightly so – it is the basis of the new…

Coconut Milk

John 17:17-19 (NKJV) Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth. For just a moment, envision the happy tourist vacationing on a white sandy beach, coconut…

Experience the Glory of God

Exodus 33:18 (NKJV) And he said, “Please, show me Your Glory.” The cry of the modern day church for revival is heard by God. Many have personal opinions on the absence of the event called out for. What is God waiting on? Why doesn’t He just pour out His Glory on the Body of Christ?…

Clean My Cup, Lord

I Samuel 16:7 (NKJV) But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” Early each morning, I make a cup of detox tea to sip on during my quiet time with the…
