July 28 Devotional

It is one thing to read the Word of God on your own every day.  It is good that we go to church and hear the Word of God preached and taught.  It is good for you to discuss with Christian friends what you have read.  It is something else to actually live out the […]

July 27 Devotional

There is a little chorus I love that says, “He’s all I need … He’s all I need … Jesus is all I need.”  I believe that with all my heart.  What about you today?  Are you satisfied with Jesus Christ?  The Bible says, “Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man […]

God delivered His people from the raging, mighty, powerful army of Pharaoh of Egypt.  He did it, by taking them through the water, not around it.  Have you ever really thought about the plan of God for your life?  Have you considered that the difficult things God is allowing to come to your life are […]

July 25 Devotional

Isaiah had a dream in which he entered into the presence of God.  After having his tongue cleaned, God gave him some specific instructions that I believe are still valid for you and me today.  God told Isaiah that He wanted him to “Go and tell” the people about Him.  He wanted Isaiah to go […]

Man has known that God would provide a Redeemer ever since Adam and Eve ate the fruit God commanded them not to eat.  Sin came into our world in Genesis chapter three, and the promise of the Redeemer came in the same chapter.  God then began to reveal His plan for redemption to the nation […]

Some of my most treasured childhood and teenage memories are sitting at the side of my grandmother’s bed, listening to stories about my family.  My grandmother’s first husband died when he was fifty-two of multiple stings from wasps.  They had eight children, and it was during the Great Depression.  There were many wonderful stories of […]

“A wicked man hardeneth his face; but as for the upright, He directeth his way” (Proverbs 21:29).  There are two choices you have for following the leadership of God in your life.  You can harden your face toward Him … or you can allow Him to easily direct your path.  All of us (if we […]

July 20 Devotional

Paul and Silas were put in prison for preaching the Gospel in the city of Philippi.  They decided to rejoice rather than complain, and they were singing at midnight in the deepest part of the prison.  While they were singing, God decided to free them, and He shook the entire prison.  Their chains fell off […]

July 19 Devotional

We human beings have had a very bad habit for a very long time.  Even though we have been given the incredible privilege to know God personally, we continually try to take His place; or we continue to replace God with our idols/gods.  When I was a teenager, someone described it this way to me: […]
