Full of the Spirit of Life

Full of the Spirit of Life

This devotional will run precisely two weeks from Christmas day. I don’t know about you, but the Christmas spirit is in full force. Decorations are everywhere, stores are playing Christmas music, and people are always in a hurry going somewhere. It’s easy to lose the...

Test My Heart

Test My Heart

Ever since I turned fifty, I have been inundated with medical and insurance advertisements. My insurance company wants me to get a check-up, my doctor wants me to get a colonoscopy, and AARP wants me to buy their life insurance. Did you know that God desires to...

Be a Willing Example

Be a Willing Example

The adage “More is caught than taught” is truer today than it ever was. There is so much noise and chatter in the world that words have lost their meaning. People may not be listening, but they sure are watching. They want to know if someone is authentic. It is an...

Why Can’t I Stop?

Why Can’t I Stop?

People are struggling in isolation and loneliness with hidden sin they can’t stop doing. Everything they try doesn’t work, and they ask themselves, “Why can’t I stop?” The spiral even further by convincing themselves they are the only ones struggling. Today’s devotion...

Running With the Horses

Running With the Horses

Last week there was a video on facebook of hundreds of wild horses that were running in the snow. It was a majestic picture of strength and freedom. The horse is a symbol of meekness or power under control. The phrase “running with the horses” came about to symbolize...

Sin Rendered Powerless

Sin Rendered Powerless

One of the best things on earth is seeing someone overcome a major struggle of sin in their lives. It is a picture of victory as you see the freedom in their eyes, the sin rendered powerless. Before, they were slaves to that sin, but now they have been set free. God...

Reason for Hope

Reason for Hope

With the Christmas season upon us, it is time for us to turn our focus on the Birth of Jesus Christ. The days are filled with excitement and anticipation as we prepare to celebrate His birth with family and friends. We remember the joy that He brought to the world and...

Honor Your Wife

Honor Your Wife

One of the vows said at weddings is, “Do you promise to love, honor, and respect her till death do you part?” Millions of husbands have said these views to each other, but do they really know what it means to honor your wife? They would say they do, but their actions...

A Betrayal of a Regular Kind

A Betrayal of a Regular Kind

There is something that happens on a daily basis that goes unnoticed. It is something so deceptive and stealthy that it’s almost natural. What is this mysterious act? It’s called lying. Most people have become so adept at it that they barely even notice what they are...

God Isn’t Finished With You

God Isn’t Finished With You

It is so easy to get discouraged with life. Hopes and plans don’t work out the way we intended them to, and that produces a bit of despair. You start to ask questions like, “What is my purpose in life?” When you begin to follow Christ, the trajectory of your life...

Redeemed From the Empty Way

Redeemed From the Empty Way

One of the biggest arguments on our family trips growing up was over getting lost. It usually started with a lack of preparation coupled with a healthy dose of stubbornness. Arguments broke out, not on what the map said, but the correct route to take there. It led to...

Rejoice in Your Heart

Rejoice in Your Heart

During my time in Malawi, one of the highlights was listening to the worship of the people. They love to worship the Lord. You can listen to a little bit of it here. There is power in lifting our voices in praise to our heavenly Father. Rejoice in your heart today....

The Wrong Wisdom

The Wrong Wisdom

When a bank teller goes through training, they are told to count thousands and thousands of dollars with their hands. The bank wants them to know what the touch of real money is so that when a counterfeit comes through, they automatically know by the touch of their...

Falling Short of God’s Standard

Falling Short of God’s Standard

Did you know that there are hundreds of world-class climbers who spend thousands of dollars each year to climb Mount Everest only to fall short? In fact, it takes the average climber four to five attempts to summit the peak. That is dedication and sacrifice. Did you...

Draw Near to God

Draw Near to God

A medical study a decade ago tracked people recovering from heart surgery. They found that those who were part of a close community healed faster and more completely than those who weren’t. Closeness is always better than distance. In relationships, people are always...
