October 31 Devotional

The Word of God is divinely inspired.  That means that man, even though used as the human author, did not come up with the ideas that we find in the Bible.  How can we be sure?  Today I read from a book that Moses penned, and then from a book the prophet Jeremiah penned.  Moses […]

October 30 Devotional

When I was eight years old, my grandmother contacted my parents and asked if we would move in with her.  Her first husband had died of a wasp sting when my mother was only twelve.  My grandmother had married again, and her second husband died of heart problems.  After his death, she was unable to […]

October 29 Devotional

  All my life growing up, I was one of the smallest, if not the smallest person in my class.  Even the girls were bigger than me.  I remember being the “joke” of my neighborhood for a whole summer when one of the neighbor girls punched me right in the nose.  Of course, when your […]

“But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for Himself; the LORD will hear when I call unto Him.  Stand in awe, and sin not: Commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah” (Psalm 4:3-4).  I want to be a godly man.  I want to be a […]

“Ask of Me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession” (Psalm 2:8).  When was the last time you begged God to save someone?  When was the last time you woke up in the middle of the night with someone you know that […]

“O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved.  How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee” (Jeremiah 4:14)?  Which are you involved in today … washing … or wasting?  It is clear that God has a plan for your life, and wasting is not a part of it.  There is […]

“Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand” (Psalm 149:6).  Be ready with praise to God and the Word of God close by in your hands!  Sounds like a Christian soldier ready for the enemies that are sure to come in this world today.  Two things […]

October 24 Devotional

We seem to find all kinds of reasons why we will not talk to others about Jesus Christ.  The foundation that most of our excuses come from is generally fear.  Fear of rejection … fear of not knowing the answers when we need them … fear of what might come that we had not anticipated. […]

October 23 Devotional

Have you ever seen a sweet looking, innocent child enter a neatly organized room, and leave with everything in a shambles?  It has happened to me when one of our sweet and precious grandchildren enters my office!  When we think about a “wrecking crew” we are normally talking about something in a negative way.  Two […]

“‘For all those things hath Mine hand made, and all those things have been,’ saith the LORD: ‘But to this man will I look, even to him that is poor, and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at My Word’” (Isaiah 66:2).   I want to be “THIS” man!  I want to be the man […]
