  1. Praying The Psalms - October 28, 2021

    I am joyful with gladness in Your presence and will sing and praise Your power. (Psalm 21:6,13) Be exalted, O Lord, In Your strength, and in your salvation how greatly I rejoice! (Psalm 21:1,13) I will not be shaken because I trust in the lovingkindness of the Lord and his willingness to bless me. (Psalm 21:6,7) The Lord rescues me, delivers me, and delights in me because I am committed to Him. (Psalm 22:8) The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. (Psalm 23:1) He takes me to His...
  2. Seeking Communion – October 28, 2021

    Song of Solomon 2:4 - "He brought me into the wine-cellars and set love in order within me." -- You come from your delightful fellowship with the King (Jesus) intoxicated with love -- for you have tasted of the finest wine. The King has brought you into His wine-cellars where you will drink deeply of Him. The more we are swallowed up by His love, the more His light would come to the surface and shine -- the more we recognize our oneness with Him. God calls Himself Light and Love --...
  3. Scripture Of The Day – October 27, 2021

    Philippians 3:7-9 - "But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake fo Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him." Observation: At some point I have to cease being a spiritual encyclopedia (that is collecting more facts, opinions,...
  4. RESCUED FROM OURSELVES

    God came down in the form of a man, Jesus, to rescue us from OURSELVES. Jesus did not come down to start a religion but to save and deliver mankind from the curse of sin. John 14:10 -- "The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself; but the Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the works." Every day Jesus laid down His life to do the will of the Father. He had laid down His life many times before He came to the Cross. His dependency on the Spirit and the Father enabled Him to...
  5. SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – October 26, 2021

    Acts 18:25 - "He (Apollos) had been instructed in the way of the Lord, and burning with spiritual zeal, he spoke and taught diligently and accurately the things concerning Jesus, though he was acquainted only with the baptism of John." Observation: IN ACTS, THE NEW CHRISTIAN FAITH IS DESCRIBED AS A "WAY" TO FOLLOW. JESUS REFERRED TO HIMSELF AS "THE WAY" AND AS "THE DOOR." THESE EXPRESSIONS INDICATE THAT I CAN ONLY RECOGNIZE SPIRITUAL THINGS...
  6. DEFEATING THE GIANT IN FRONT OF US

    As many are facing giants today, we need to learn from David -- a man who knew how to handle giants. As God gives us the spirit of David, He wants us to be personally offended at anything or anyone that keeps us from fulfilling His CALLING on our lives. Saul and the army of Israel were all controlled by fear and their hearts melted. But David said, "Let no one lose heart on account of this Philistine; your servant will go and fight him." (1 Samuel 17:32) Saul had even tried to talk...
  7. Scripture of The Day – October 25, 2021

    Hebrews 11:3 - "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." Observation: I NEED TO THINK, BELIEVE, AND SPEAK, NOT ACCORDING TO THINGS WHICH ARE SEEN - MY CIRCUMSTANCES - BUT ACCORDING TO THINGS WHICH ARE NOT SEEN - THE WORD OF GOD. AS I AM FAITHFUL TO THINK, BELIEVE AND SPEAK ACCORDING TO THAT WHICH IS NOT SEEN, GOD WILL MAKE THOSE THINGS TANGIBLE IN...
  8. ACCESSING THE CONTINUOUS FLOW FROM HIM

    John 7:38 - "He that believeth on Me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." We as children of God are to bring forth life and fruit that was birthed and begun in God. The word believe is in no way a shallow belief, but one of complete trust and total reliance on. Jesus is not only One we trust in, but He must become our trust. And out of this place of trust we will find the abundance of God flowing through us in every area of our lives. Daniel...
  9. Scripture Of The Day – October 24, 2021

    John 19:30 - "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, 'It is finished': and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost." At that, Jesus' disciples, looking to their own limitations and the seeming hopelessness of their situation, scattered. They hid themselves. They weren't thinking about Jesus' promise: They were thinking only about how powerless, helpless, and afraid they felt without Him. Observation: IF THE DEVIL CAN GET ME...
  10. COMMISSIONED FOR GLORY

    Zechariah 9:12,14 - "Return to the stonghold, you prisoners of hope even today I declare that I will restore double to you......The Lord will be seen over them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning." Many believers – especially young people, ask about commissioning -- they want to know who should commission them, when they should be commissioned, and, spiritually speaking, are they already commissioned? The truth is, it's God that actually commissions His people. And when God opens...
  11. OPENING UP RIVERS

    Isaiah 41:17-20: "When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the...
  12. Scripture of The Day – October 17, 2021

    1 John 2:15 - "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him." Someone said, "You can look, but don't touch." This is bad advice. There is much visual distraction today. It's easy to be lured away into worldly thinking and be deceived by the enemy by (continually) looking at something that is beneath a Christian's dignity. Job 31:1 - "I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a...
  13. ADDING TO GOD'S CONDITIONS

    Exodus 12:13 -- "Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you....." On the night of the first Passover, many of the children of Israel were probably anxious. They may have said "Yes! We were told to put the blood of the lamb on the doorposts of our home and everything would be all right. Is that true?" Or "Can the blood really protect me? Or How much blood do I have to...
  14. Thought For The Day - October 16, 2021

    In your private thoughts, you are still trying to order your world so that it is predictable and feels safe. Not only is this an impossible goal, but it is also counterproductive to spiritual growth. When your private world feels unsteady and you look to God for support, you are living in conscious dependence on Him. Instead of yearning for a problem-free life, rejoice that trouble can highlight your awareness of His Presence. Accept the value of problems in this life, considering them...
  15. Seeking Communion - October 16, 2021

    Luke 9:23 - "If anyone wishes to come after Me; he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me." When the Cross is alive, it burns up the flesh – dreams of the flesh, ambitions of the flesh – all of the flesh. All of the flesh it consumes. It consumed man's flesh beyond recognition, and so it is with His own. So when the Father looks down, He sees the reflection of His Son, and then there becomes recognition. Let the Cross have its work. Let the grave contain what is...
