The Lord Hears

1 Peter 3:12 – “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their prayers; But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” We live in a world of distractions. The hustle and bustle of everyday life, the chatter on social media and the […]

Live to Praise Jesus

Ephesians 1:12 – “That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.” What do you live for?

Fervent Love

1 Peter 4:8 – “And above all things have fervent love for one another, for ‘love will cover a multitude of sins.’” The world’s definition of love is varied.

The Temple of the Holy Spirit

1 Corinthians 6:19 – “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?” Imagine, for a moment, that God says He’s coming to visit you at home? What would your reaction be? At first […]

Celebrating the Name of Jesus

Isaiah 9:6 – “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Most parents start thinking of baby names just a few months before the baby’s birth. But […]

Strength, Blessings and Peace from God

Psalm 29:11 – “The Lord will give strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace.” This scripture is a Psalm of David. When David saw the great storm, heard the wind, saw the lightning and fire in the sky, heard the thunder and noise in the sky, it made him think […]

Grace of Abundance

2 Corinthians 9:8 – “And God is able to make all grace abound towards you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” In this scripture, Paul speaks of the Christians at Corinth who were unwilling to give or share their things. Paul reminded them of […]

Magnify God In Obedience

Psalm 34:7 – “The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them.” Saul, the King of Israel, wanted to kill David. He followed David when he ran away to Gath, a Philistine city. Abimelech, the king of Gath, was not his well-wisher so David was afraid. Instead of trusting […]
