  1. Meditations On Friends

    Friends - people you hang out with -- people you feel committed to -- people you would go the extra mile for -- people whose beliefs and opinions you respect. Job 2:11 - " When Job’s three friends, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, heard about all the troubles that had come upon him, they set out from their homes and met together by agreement to go and sympathize with him and comfort him." Popular Mindset -- That it is good to have a lot of friends. Your...
  2. What do should I do if I meet an Angel? (part 2)

    (See Part 1) 3. Show Faith The only topic of conversation that's recorded in the Bible during the meal Abraham and the angels have together is that God will fulfill the promise he gave Abraham earlier (Genesis 17:15-16) that Sarah (his wife) will bear him a son. The angels say it will be so and happen by the time they return next year. Keep in mind Sarah is ~90 years old at this time! To accept this promise requires amazing faith. Sarah fails this test by laughing at the promise. In...
  3. What do should I do if I meet an Angel? (Part 1)

    What comes to mind when you think of an angel? Sometimes we think of divine beings zipping around invisibly up above. Psalm 91 says "For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways (Psalms 91:11). We believe angels offer words of caution to us or protection, but always out of sight. But not just content to operate in ways we can't see, the Bible makes clear that angels take human form! They appear human, just like you or I. This is kind of a big deal....
  4. Daily Devotional - July 29, 2020

    Acts 20:24 - "But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus." The ministry of the Spirit has been entrusted to us. We must be in the place of edifying the Church. We are the representatives of Jesus. He was eaten up with zeal (John 2:17). This intense zeal changes us by the operation of the Word; we do not rest in the letter, but we allow the blessed Holy Spirit to lift us by His...
  5. SEPARATING OURSELVES APART

    In Joshua's day, before crossing the Jordan River and moving into their inheritance, God said to the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you" (Joshua 3:5). This is an exhortation for us today! DRAW NEAR TO GOD The word consecrate, in Hebrew, is actually a relational term. "Qadash" means to separate or set yourself apart unto God. God's heart isn't, "Clean up your act so I can restore and bless you." He says instead, "Come to Me so I can bless you."...
  6. Daily Devotional - July 27, 2020

    2 Corinthians 5:17 - "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." We have been created to carry the glory of God. Hebrews 2 says that through Christ's suffering He brought many sons to glory. It was always God's intention to dwell with mankind. Once we understand God's purpose for our life we have boundless potential to advance His Kingdom. There are those who prefer to inhabit their comfort zone, thinking they...
  7. DEMONSTRATING PASSION

    Acts 14:3 - "Therefore they stayed there a long time speaking boldly in the Lord who was bearing witness to the word of His grace granting signs and wonders done by their hands." There has to be a demonstration of this King we serve. The evidence of His resurrection is in the power of your words and the power of the actions that follow your words. Throughout the book of Acts it says, "They spoke boldly and God confirmed the situation and confirmed the Word." That boldness actually draws God...

    2 Peter 1:3,4 - "His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and VERY GREAT PROMISES, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature..." If you are facing a faith challenge, the very first thing you should do is go to the Word and find the promise of God that covers your situation. 2 Peter 1:3,4 is our assurance that...
  9. Daily Devotional - July 25, 2020

    Matthew 24:45 - "Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord has made ruler over his household?" Who is faithful? The one who spends his time doing what God has called him to do. Or as Jesus put it, the one who takes up his cross and follows Him. The one who denies his fleshly desires and spends his life on the things God desires him to do. God may be calling you to pray for the sick or to disciple a new Christian. But you're busy, so you glide on with good intentions and tell...
  10. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - July 24, 2020

    Hebrews 11:1 - "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." For the "substance"; we must look on Jesus. It is the most blessed object that the eye of the mind can possibly fix upon; of all the objects under heaven Jesus has the pre-eminence in perfection, and he should have the pre-eminence in our meditation. It is He that makes us most happy since we possess Him, and we cannot but be joyful to look upon Him, for the name signifies Savior. "He is able...
  11. Daily Devotional - July 24, 2020

    Ephesians 4:6 - "One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all." It does not matter what the enemy brings to you, or tries to bring; the God of power, majesty, and glory can bring you to a place of dethroning everything else! Do you dare to believe it? We have to apprehend who we are in Christ; we have to understand our right standing with God based on the New Covenant; that we are brought to the place where He is with us in all power, dethroning the power of...
  12. Seeking Communion - July 23, 2020

    "And said, Verily I say to you, Except you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven." - Matthew 18:3 It is very important that the foundation upon which we stand is "The Rock," our Lord Jesus Christ, and that our life is hidden "in Christ." If our spiritual experience is resting on sand, that is, if we are trusting our own abilities, we will fail when the pressures of life increase. We can walk in stability and confidence with Him if we...
  13. Daily Devotional - July 23, 2020

    Psalm 34:17 - "The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; He delivers them from all their troubles." Start saying this over and over each day, "The Lord is at work in my situation. He's bringing me into the place I ought to be. He's delivering me now." This is not the time to sit on the sidelines and just try to get comfortable. It's time to seek His face for His perfect will and then carry it out with all our might. It's time to plow our time and energy, our all in all, into...
  14. Daily Devotional - July 22, 2020

    Luke 14:26 - "If any man come to me and hate not...he cannot be My disciple." There is a difference between devotion to a Person and devotion to principles or to a cause. Our Lord never proclaimed a cause; He proclaimed personal devotion to Himself. Men pour themselves into creeds, and God has to blast them out of their prejudices before they can become devoted to Jesus Christ. To be a disciple is to be a devoted love-slave of the Lord Jesus. Many who call themselves Christian are not...
