Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. Psalm 100:4 Tomorrow we celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States. This is a time we take to spend with our families and be thankful for the bountiful blessings we have been given. Some might feel particularly disconnected this Thanksgiving as they focus on the things they don’t have because of a dwindling economy. Yes, there are a lot of people hurting this yea
I really don’t like to interject my political viewpoints in my devotionals and try to keep my comments geared toward biblical application. However, after some of the comments I heard yesterday, I am urging Christians to study God’s Word for themselves! Some Christians tend to think that the whole Barack Obama thing is somehow a sign of the times or things to come – as if Barack Obama is the anti-christ. Please, folks, know what God’s Word says about the last days. If you don’
169Let my cry come before You, O LORD; Give me understanding according to Your word.
170 Let my supplication come before You; Deliver me according to Your word.
171 My lips shall utter praise, For You teach me Your statutes.
172 My tongue shall speak of Your word, For all Your commandments are righteousness.
173 Let Your hand become my help, For I have chosen Your precepts.
174 I long for Your salvation, O LORD, And Your law is my delight.
175 Let my soul live, and it s
1 Therefore, my beloved and longed-for brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, beloved.2 I implore Euodia and I implore Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord. 3 And I urge you also, true companion, help these women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the Book of Life. 4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at han
That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” 39He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves

I came across an old devotional journal from last year. It was awesome to read again, but it also exposed me for my lack of continuity as I haven’t been journaling my devotions in a long time. Yes, I write to encourage you each day – but I haven’t journaled my personal time with the Lord in a while. As I looked back over them, they blessed me and I thought that I would share them with you over the next few days or so and pray that you are blessed also. I plan to continue to j
116 Sustain me according to your promise, and I will live;
do not let my hopes be dashed. Psalm 119:116 I thought it appropriate today, Election Day 2008, to confront the possibility that your candidate of choice or mine, will not win. We know that there can only be one winner so regardless of whether your candidate wins – I wanted to encourage you that you will be alright! You will live! God will sustain us according to the promise of His Word – never to leave us nor forsak
2 To know wisdom and instruction,
To perceive the words of understanding,
3 To receive the instruction of wisdom,
Justice, judgment, and equity;
4 To give prudence to the simple,
To the young man knowledge and discretion—
5 A wise man will hear and increase learning,
And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, Proverbs 1:2-5 We’ve all experienced a historical event last night as we witnessed the election of the first African American man to the presidency of the
