Friend, are you distraught over the recent occurrences that make it appear like the devil is winning? God has not given us a spirit of fear but of love and of power and of a sound mind. God is still in control, keep your eyes on Him. If you want to see transformation, turn your energies to prayer before taking action!

With Jesus as our Anchor, we can withstand any storm. Friend, if you find yourself tossed and thrown by the tempests of life, perhaps you should check to see if you are still connected firmly to Christ.

I have noticed that people today seem to feel justified in their hatred of others that are different than themselves. If the “good” people hate those that they see as “haters” how are the “good” different from the “bad”? The follower of Christ is called to a different path…and it is difficult at times. We are to see everyone through the eyes of Jesus, even those that we deem despicable because of their beliefs and actions. Lord, give me Your eyes to see.

God’s ability to care for us isn’t limited by our inability to trust in Him, all we need is that mustard seed of faith!

We don’t have to have a great faith, all we need is a little faith in a Great God!

Lord, take away my judgmental heart and replace it with Yours. Remove my fears and give me Your heart for Your people, especially the prodigals who have lost their way.

A small investment in encouragement can provide enormous dividends in the life that it is deposited into. Friend, who is God inspiring you to invest today?

The problem is not in the authenticity of the Bible but rather our ability to trust in God’s Word.

The more I concentrate on me, the more miserable I become. The more I focus on God, the more joy I receive. The more I love others the better this world becomes.

Too often we look at other people and may consider them our enemies. For the believer there is one primary enemy…the devil. All people are God’s sons and daughters, some are walking with Him, others have not found their way to their Father. Let us pray for a Great Awakening where millions are brought into the family!

And you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. Jesus is the Truth. There are so many voices in our world telling us what we need to do to achieve happiness, only His voice will set us free. Take some time to know Him better today my friend!

If you are thirsty, come to me and drink and if you believe, from your heart will flow rivers of living water! -Jesus
Stop and think what it means to have living waters flowing from your heart…perhaps it means that the words of our mouths and the contemplation of our hearts are encouraging, life giving and lead others into the loving arms of Jesus! Drink deeply my friend!

When I contemplate the holiness and perfection of God, I am reminded of my own imperfections and how far I fall short of who I can be. Though some might say that this is self deprecation, I would say that recognizing one’s own sinfulness and God’s holiness is the greatest weapon in the battle against pride. When God gives us victory over this old opponent, then life really begins!

Your life really can have a positive impact on this world, one person at a time, one interaction at a time. Lord, we pray that You will bless others through our presence!

“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” -Jesus.
This is an enormous need in our world today, for individuals, for communities and for nations. It starts with us, Christ promises His peace to those who will receive Him. Friend, here is a simple prayer for us… Lord, I need Your peace today. Amen
