  1. Daily Devotional - August 8, 2020

    Psalm 62:5 - "For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him." Our world today is very noisy, busy and at times stressful. When you feel stressed or frustrated, go somewhere that is silent -- your soul will begin to calm down. Inner peace and quiet are vital for hearing from God or sensing the direction He wants us to take. Outer silence helps promote inner silence. Learn to love silence and you will be more inclined to hear the still, small voice of God. At a time when...
  2. Daily Devotional - August 7, 2020

    John 7:38,39 - "Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them. By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive..." Christ calls us to believe in Him, confident that the Holy Spirit will work powerfully in us according to the measure of our faith in Christ. The surest way to remain filled with the Spirit is to focus our attention on Christ. Begin every morning in the presence of God and there commit...

    Romans 8:11 - "If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you." The measure of your true potential is in your spirit. God has always intended that we would always live from the inside -- from the spirit-man in communion with the eternal Spirit of God. Without that relationship, you are limited to the potential of your soul and your body. "For those who...
  4. Daily Devotional - August 5, 2020

    Luke 13:16 - "And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan bound for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?” The teaching that says that sickness is actually a blessing in disguise, because the Lord is working His plan in one's life is not found in scripture. Nowhere do we find Jesus refusing to heal anyone. His actions are proof enough that it is always God's will to heal! Jesus provided for physical healing as well as forgiveness of sins. The very word...
  5. PURSUING THE GLORY

    Revelation 4:1 - "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven; and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, 'Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.'" John is describing the ascended life. John 3:13 - "And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven." The Lord has called us to ascend into heavenly realms encountering the Lord and...
  6. Daily Devotional - August 4, 2020

    1 Corinthians 1:30 - "And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption," Sanctification does not mean anything less than the holiness of Jesus being made ours manifestly. The one marvelous secret of a holy life lies not in imitating Jesus, but in letting the perfections of Jesus manifest themselves in our mortal flesh. Sanctification is "Christ in you." It is His wonderful life that is imparted by faith as a gift...
  7. LIVING UNDER AN OPEN HEAVEN

    Jesus said to Nathanael, "You will see greater things than these...I say to you, you will see the heavens opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man. - John 1: 50,51. Most Christians see the heavens closed. Few see with open vision either into the heavenly realms or into their own hearts. Romans 14:17 - "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit." The Kingdom is contained by the presence of the...

    1 John 3:21,22 - "Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; He will give us whatever we ask, because we obey him and do what pleases him." Walk in obedience in the light you have. Take the time to listen and be responsive to the Spirit of God. When He tells you to do something, do it. A life of obedience will give you a spiritual boldness you've never had before. It will give you boldness in prayer, a boldness in faith. It will give you a confidence toward...
  9. IDENTIFYING WITH THE LOST

    "Before she went into labor, she had the baby. Before the birth pangs hit, she delivered a son...So I open the womb and not deliver the baby? Do I, the One who delivers babies shut the womb?" - Isaiah 66:7-9 Soul travail is an impassioned deep level of intercession (prayer) that affects the spiritual atmosphere so that the lost can hear the gospel and make a decision to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We literally push back the blinding oppressing power of the enemy so that...

    Isaiah 41:10 - "Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." It is easy to say "Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!" when times are good. It is easy to believe that God loves you when you are on the mountaintop enjoying the sunshine. But what happens when you are down in the dark valley surrounded by your enemies? When King Jehosaphat was surrounded by his enemies, He acted with wisdom...
  11. Albert Finch Ministry - Daily Devotional - July 31, 2020

    Isaiah 26:3 - "You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you." If your peace is disturbed, there is something wrong. Apply the blood of Jesus, and keep your mind stayed upon Jehovah, where hearts are fully blessed, finding as He promised, perfect peace and rest. Keep your mind on God, gaining strength in Him day by day. We must keep in the spiritual tide -- God supreme, the altar within the body. Faith is the evidence, the power, the...
  12. Daily Devotional - July 30, 2020

    Psalm 62:5 - "My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him." Our world today is very noisy, busy, and at times stressful. When you feel stressed or frustrated go somewhere that is silent you will find that your soul begins to calm down. Inner peace and quiet are vital for hearing from God or sensing the direction He wants us to take. Outer silence helps promote inner silence. At a time when Elijah desperately needed to receive direction from God he had to wait until all...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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....
