Praise brings victory

Psalm 57:9:  I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people:  I will sing unto thee among the nations. David wrote this psalm when he was in a cave hiding from Saul.  Apparently, Saul also was in the same cave but on the other side.  David decided to pray to God for protection because it […]

When you’re surrounded on every side

2 Corinthians 4:8-9 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. Apostle Paul didn’t just pen these words out of the blues…he knew what he was writing because he had experienced all of this himself! But how on earth could that be? How could […]

The Battle is Not Ours

Psalm 29:10 The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD is enthroned as King forever.   Are we drowning under a flood of problems?

Just Keep Praising

Psalm 117:2 – “His merciful kindness is great toward us, And the truth of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord!” The Psalms are filled with every kind of emotion – joy, sadness, desperation, anger, frustration… but the one thing that overwhelms it all is praise. While there are so many Psalms that deal with […]

Impossible is Nothing

Mark 10:27 – “But Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.’” “Impossible is Nothing!” That’s the tagline of a popular global sporting brand. But is it really though? True, we’ve seen sportsmen and women defy all odds, overcome physical, financial […]

When you’re hanging on the edge

Psalm 118:15 Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!” David wrote this psalm during what he called the season of chastisement.  He was in extreme anxiety, surrounded by the enemy. They hovered around like a swarm of killer bees and David felt trapped as if […]

Promise to Prosper

Psalm 62:6  He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved.   Often, people think troubles cannot move God’s children. That isn’t so! Troubles can move us. But, God’s preordained plan for our life cannot be moved.   Joseph was only a teenager when his brothers plotted […]
