VICTORY IN JESUS

November 25, 2020

As I was writing this devotion, I was thinking of a song, “Victory in Jesus.” I know I cannot sing, but I do know that there is victory in Jesus. I know that no weapon formed against us shall prosper. I do know that in all our ways if we acknowledge Him He shall direct…

DON’T ALLOW ANYTHING TO COME BEFORE GOD

November 24, 2020

It is important that we do not allow anything to separate us from the love of God. We may not worship images of bronze or gold, however, we place things and images before God. God is a jealous God, and wants our whole hearts, soul, and mind. Worldly things can allure us. Some of us…

LEARN TO RELAX

November 23, 2020

I have a plaque in my office that reads, “Learn to relax.” It reminds me daily of the need to take a deep breath and relax. Relaxing is crucial to our well-being. We can become stressed, overworked, burdened, and depressed if we do not take the time to simply catch our breath. Our lives are…

STAY IN YOUR LANE

November 22, 2020

It is so important that as God blesses us to do ministry that we stay in our lane. We cannot go outside of the places that God has blessed us and do anything. He gives each of us certain gifts and various responsibilities. I would argue strongly that far too many people covet another’s gifts.…

I have been writing a great deal about spiritual gifts. Our spiritual gifts have been given to us so that God will get the glory. Each Spiritual gift is different, but it is to lift His High and Holy Name. At the same time, God is the source of all these gifts. Whatever gift you…

GOD GIVES US DISCERNMENT

November 18, 2020

God has given us the ability to help one another. For the Lord knows that we need one another. None of us can make it through this life’s journey alone. Wherever we are in life, someone has helped us. This idea that we pull ourselves up by our bootstraps is a silly notion. Somebody prayed…

KEEP AN OPEN MIND

November 17, 2020

Our minds must always be open. We can never allow ourselves to have a closed mind, for it will play tricks on us. It will have us thinking that wrong is right and right is wrong. I would argue strongly that the older we get, the more difficult it is for us to think differently.…

WE BELONG TO GOD

November 16, 2020

I am so glad that I am a child of God! I belong to Him. When others disown me, I know that God loves me. My life matters to God who created me in His own image. His love will never let me go. I pray that you know that as well. No matter your…
