You Alone Are My Reason

The land you have given me is a good land, because you are in it - and you are my true blessing.I have set you before m...
A Cry For Wisdom
on June 7th, 2018
James 1:5–8 (NLT)5 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.6 But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.7 Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.8 Their loyalty is divid...

Joshua 23:11 says. “So be very careful to love the Lord your God (nlt).”The greatest way to ensure that we are walking in the blessings of God and are never at risk of backsliding is to be very careful to love the Lord your God; this is our single greatest safeguard to ensure our growing relationship with Jesus Christ.Why did Moses call all of Israel in the great Shema to this one thing in Deutero...

Our Highest Priority
on July 17th, 2017
The Lord calls us to come away with him, alone, on a regular basis. Your world, with all its nonstop demands, can, and needs to be, put on hold for few minutes, in order for you to be alone with Jesus. Instead, most Christians put Jesus on hold. Rationalizing that someday they will find time to do what they know is most important. But the longer you push Jesus into the background of your life, the...
The Lord Is My Light And Salvation

A Prayer Following Psalm 27 (nlt)The Lord is my light and my salvation - so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?

Even if it looks like the enemy is getting the upp...
