August 31 Devotion

“Trust me …”  Have you ever heard those words and had an immediate question mark rise up in your brain?  I have heard some people say that to me and I had my doubts.  I remember going to buy a car one time.  Let me say early in this story, not all car salespeople are […]

August 30 Devotional

I remember a night in December (over twenty-five years ago) when I entered a hospital emergency area and saw my father lying in a bed with wires connected to his chest.  For the first time in my life I realized that my Dad was actually human and had weaknesses.  Oh, I knew he was human […]

“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost” (Romans 15:13).  Can you imagine what a difference you can make today if you will simply live with hope in this hopeless world?  Allow your God to build […]

August 28 Devotional

The most important part of a house is its foundation.  Jesus used this foundation as an illustration about a wise and foolish man.  Jesus told us that if a man builds his house on sand that the storms of life will cause a great crash.  He used the opposite picture to teach that a house […]

“Who humbleth Himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!  He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill” (Psalm 113:6-7).   When someone with an important position notices someone who has no position, it has always impressed me.  I remember a […]

I will be honest with you … I don’t like complete darkness at all.  Light is a wonderful thing!  Check out this verse: “Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: He is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous” (Psalm 112:4).  I know the reality of this Old Testament verse!  I thank God […]

August 25 Devotional

We are living in a world of information over-load.  If you have a question about anything (regardless of how trivial it might seem), you can simply enter it in “Google” and find out more information than you knew existed!  We have people that have been attending college for most of their adult life, and if […]

I can remember lying on my back when I was in High School on a weight-lifting bench.  My arms looked toothpicks than muscular structures.  My body resembled more of a distance runner than a weight-lifter.  There I was under that bar with about 150 pounds on the bar.  While my friends lowered the bar to […]

August 23 Devotional

Today I want you to consider an incredible verse describing an amazing meeting between God and man.  “And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend.  And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of […]

“Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man” (Psalm 108:12).  Give us help … we have trouble … we have asked for the help of other men … they have given it … we are still in trouble.  When will we wake up to the fact that there is only one […]
