DREAM BIG

In our church, we have a homework room for our young people with computers and laptops. In the center of the room, a big painting reads “Dream Big.” Dreaming big is not limited to our young people but for all of God’s people. No matter our age, we should never stop dreaming. I am not…

WHO ARE YOU WORKING FOR?

The title of this devotion, Who Are You Working For is a question we must all answer. We are saved by our faith, not by our works. I would argue strongly that countless people are working for their own self-satisfaction. The moment they are not recognized, they quit. I have seen this many times. All…

There is power in the Word of God. We draw our power from the Word. When we rely on the Word, no matter what battle we find ourselves in, we will always be victorious. That is why it is important to study the Word and be doers of the word by applying it to our…

PUT ON YOUR ARMOR

As believers, we must put on the whole armor of God. We must not fight with carnal weapons. We will lose every time. Never leave home without your armor on. In fact, I might add, never take your armor off, even in your home. For the flesh is weak and you will find yourself engaged…

GET RID OF GUILT

Yesterday’s devotion spoke of the need to Get Rid of Stress. Today I want to follow with, “Get Rid of Guilt”. I would argue that guilt also causes stress. You cannot live a wholesome life carrying guilt on your shoulders. Let me be clear, all of us have sinned, made mistakes, and done some things…
