TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS

This may be the second or third time, I have written about taking responsibility for your actions. I would argue strongly that far too many believers take no responsibility for their wrongdoing. In fact, they are quick to blame someone else as if to say they are not at fault. We cannot blame others for…

ACT AS A CHILD OF GOD

In April of this year, Sr. Pastor Alyn Waller of Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church preached one of his powerful sermons entitled I Refuse To Hate. That deep and profound message still resonates in my heart. We live in a world filled with hate and we see it every day in our country. Some dislike people…

FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF

Today’s devotion focuses on not feeling sorry for yourself. Don’t allow past mistakes to deprive you of the blessings that God has for you. Forget the mistakes and remember the lessons. Do not walk around in gloom and doom. Stop saying, “Woe is me.” We have a God who grants to us new mercies every…

READY FOR THE BATTLE

There are battles that we encounter as we serve the Lord. Consequently, we must always be ready. We can never be caught off guard. Our battles will come from different directions and uncertain times. The good news is that when we are ready, no matter how difficult it may be, we can be victorious. We…

RUN THE RACE TO WIN

The Christian race is a long and tedious journey. There will be roadblocks along the way and when we face them, we cannot give up. We must continue to run this race, for it is not given to the swift, but to those who endure to the end. We must start what we finish, and…

FACE THE TRUTH

We do not have to live a lie! We can live a full and free life that honors God by having an intimate relationship with the Lord. We cannot live in denial, but live true to God and to ourselves. We cannot continue to tell ourselves, “I am not a bad person”, and then rattle…

PULL DOWN STRONGHOLDS

Several years ago, I preached a sermon titled, “Pulling Down Strongholds.” At the same time, Lee and Gayland Ridley did a series of workshops focused on this topic. In fact, just this summer, they had the opportunity to share once again this critical subject of pulling down strongholds. It is vital that we pull down…

APPLY THE WORD TO YOUR LIFE

I am often amazed at how quickly we quote scripture and how slow we are to apply that scripture to our lives. God’s Words are action words. We are called to be more than listeners of the Word, but doers of the Word. We cannot sit under the Word and remain the same. In other…

LOVE BEARS ALL THINGS

In today’s devotion, I want to focus upon the Love Chapter. For love is one of the greatest gifts God has given to us. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosover believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” God’s love is amazing. God wants…
