Meditations

  1. Psalm27:1 NIV

    The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid? What do you do when trouble comes? Who do you turn to when everyone is against you? Another psalm says: "Some trust in chariots, others trust in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord, our God" (Psalm 20:7). God always defends those who are His own. He is their light when it is seems to be dark around and does not let the feet stumble; His name is a strong...
  2. Praying The Psalms - October 29, 2020

    I commit my way to the Lord, trust in Him, and delight myself in Him to bring forth His righteousness through me in Christ Jesus. (Psalm 37:4-6) I put my hope in the Lord and enjoy my inheritance in Christ Jesus. (Psalm 37:9) As I embrace God's purpose for my life, he makes certain of my steps. (Psalm 37:23) I consider myself dead to sin and abide in Christ Jesus forever. (Psalm 37:27) The Lord is my strength and delivers me in times of trouble as I take refuge and embrace the abundant...
  3. Luke 6:35 NIV

    "But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked." We all know that love is not expressed the same way towards everyone. We love our friends in a certain way, our children and other family another way, and our spouses still another totally different way. But how do we love our enemies? Is it even possible to do such a...
  4. UNDERSTANDING OUR MOTIVE

    Luke 11:38 - "When the Pharisee saw it, he was surprised that He had not first ceremonially washed before the meal." If we are still "doing" acts of holiness to get God to move in our lives, then we are still operating under a "law" mentally that is not faith (Galatians 3:12). The legalist thinks, 'I can GET God to heal me by confessing "by His stripes I am healed.'" The person who understands God's grace will not confess God's word with the motive of trying to GET God to heal him but will...
  5. Psalm 139:1-2

    "You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar." Have you ever felt that you were fighting the good fight and running the race, but you were all alone and it was as if you were doing it all for nothing? Not only there is no one to encourage you, but it seems that everyone criticizes you and thinks that you are too far gone. The good news is that God is always there for you, and He knows what nobody else knows about...
  6. Daily Devotional - October 3, 2020

    John 3:13 - "No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven." He was describing a lifestyle with the Father -- even though He was standing on earth He had ascended into heavenly realms in His relationship with God. That is an invitation for every believer. Colossians 3:1 - "If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God." We are as raised from the dead as...
  7. Daily Devotional - September 28, 2020

    Exodus 33:15, Moses says, "Then he said to Him, 'If Your presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here." God has fresh, eternal waters for us to drink from every moment. These waters of the life of His Spirit are needed and cannot be neglected, for they are what sustains us in the more difficult times. To be without His presence is to be on your own – that is definitely not a desire or an option. To embrace the "new" for your life you have to be willing to step into a place...
  8. In fact we can go further

    In fact we can go further. First, the texts which are usually used to defend the exclusively private nature of the prayer of hours and times very plainly show that this prayer could and actually did have an ecclesiological character, was offered in the assemblies of the community. Thus, in the Apostolic Tradition, immediately following the prescriptions to pray each morning, it is said: ‘but if there is instruction by the word (catechizatio) let every one prefer to attend that, since when he...
  9. Daily Devotional - June 18, 2020

    Psalm 25:12 - "Who is the man who fears the LORD?" The abiding consciousness of the life is to be God, not thinking about Him. The whole of our life inside and out is to be haunted by the presence of God. We are to live and move and have our whole being in God, to look at everything in relation to God, because the abiding consciousness of God pushes itself to the front all the time -- nothing else can get in, no cares, no tribulation, no anxieties. Affirmation: Today, I carry my open...
  10. A LIFE WITH NO LIMITS

    "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised." - Luke 4:18 God is bringing us to a place where we know the Spirit of the Lord is upon us. If we have not got to that place, God wants to bring us to the fact of what Jesus said in John 14, "...I will pray the Father, and He shall give...
  11. Daily Devotional - June 17, 2020

    Revelation 3:20 - “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.” When He walked the earth He stayed open as a door—a passageway between Heaven and Earth. He released the Kingdom of God from His Spirit, His inner man, to the outer world. Jesus, as a door, was fully open to our Father in Heaven and fully open to us on Earth. Through Him, Father worked freely. At the very door of your...
  12. Daily Devotional - June 16, 2018

    Psalm 42:2 - "My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?" How can you acquire an intimate experience of the presence of God in your communion with Him? Believe with your whole heart that He offers Himself as the listener. Give God the occasion to make Himself known to you when you approach Him in prayer. You will never discover this, however, if you do not take time to have genuine fellowship with God. The power of prayer does not lie in the number or...
  13. Daily Devotional - June 15, 2018

    2 Kings 13:17-19 - “Elisha declared. ‘You will completely destroy the Arameans at Aphek.’ Then he said, ‘Take the arrows,’ and the king took them. Elisha told him, 'Strike the ground.’ He struck it three times and stopped. The man of God was angry with him and said, 'You should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it.” Be silent no more! Strike the ground! Believe that you are powerful and step into the fulfillment of God’s...
  14. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - June 15, 2020

    Consider the difference between Christ and all other things -- as thus, all other things are vanities, but Christ is a real, solid substantial, glorious thing; all other things are temporary, fading things, but Christ is an enduring substance. All other things are thorns, vexations of spirit, but Christ is full of joy and comfort, a most ravishing object, all composed of loves, or altogether lovely. Who would make it his business to fill his coffers with pebbles, when he may have pearls, or...
  15. YIELDING TO GOD'S SPIRIT

    "....if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you." - Romans 8:11 "For you have not received the spirit of bondage again in fear; but you have received the spirit of adoption whereby we cry, Abba Father...And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ..." - Romans 8:15,17 The Spirit brings us to a place where we see that we are...
