Daily Walk Devotion

Remain in the Light

Remain in the Light

The other morning I was woken up by two dogs barking at 4 am. The way they were barking made it seem there was some problem. Sure enough, I walked out on to my front porch, and the dogs had a drunk man cornered on our street. He was stumbling around, and they were...

Do This Even More

Do This Even More

Consistency is one of the greatest needs in the workplace. Employers and supervisors are desperate for employees who show up on time and do the job they are supposed to do with a decent attitude. Turnover is increasing because workers don’t want to show up to work and...

Not of This World

Not of This World

I see a lot of cars with the bumper sticker that says, “Not of this world.” Most of them are done in an eye-appealing way, and some are just the four first letters of each word. It is a good reminder of who we are as Christians and what our eternal destination is. The...

The Gift of Time

The Gift of Time

There was a meme I read on the internet the other day that listed how many followers a guy had on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram and then it said the only ones outside of his hospital room were his wife and kids. Then it encouraged the reader to invest your time in...

Three Promises

Three Promises

The whole premise of a genie in a lamp is that when we rub it, he is supposed to give us three wishes. We can have anything in the world our heart desires, but we can only have three of them. Many people try to treat Jesus like a genie in the bottle. We want to go to...

Lead Us on the Right Path

Lead Us on the Right Path

Always trust your tour guide. When I was in a foreign country, a guide for another group was telling his people to avoid a specific area because they could walk off a short cliff into a pool. The guard railing wasn’t up, and he didn’t want anyone to fall in. Sure...

The Perfect Combination

The Perfect Combination

Think of some of the perfect combinations in life: Peanut butter and Jelly, summers at the beach, and Matt Damon in the Bourne movies. It's almost as if they were made for each other and it's hard to even fathom one without the other. The church has the perfect...

Remain in Christ’s Love

Remain in Christ’s Love

Many married couples think that their love will get them through difficult times. The problem is that they are often thinking of romantic love. That kind fades away. What truly helps a couple to weather the storms are trust, honesty, and commitment. When we do those,...

Pleased to Share with You

Mary Jenner was always ready to help someone out when there was a need. She was quick to make a meal for a sick family or come over and clean someone’s house when they were recovering from surgery. Mary was always giving and serving to those in her church and...

Tapped Into the Truth

Tapped Into the Truth

Having someone who can give you competent counsel is invaluable. To be able to get things off of your chest and hear the advice of someone more knowledgeable can be the difference between success and failure. Did you know that Jesus promised us a Counselor who is...

Shaking in Your Boots

Shaking in Your Boots

Have you ever got engrossed in a western movie? You know, the ones with the cowboys on horses? Inevitably, there is a scene at the saloon where the bad guy challenges someone to a gunfight. The poor guy is shaking in his boots until the hero rides in and intervenes....

In a Whirlwind

In a Whirlwind

Some of us are so busy that our lives could be described as a whirlwind. We think about our schedule, and we get dizzy from all that needs to be done and the places we need to be. What’s tough is hearing the soft, still voice of God in the midst of it all. If you feel...

What Are You Known For?

What Are You Known For?

It seems everyone is an expert in something these days. You can’t meet anyone without them telling you what sets them apart. Most of the time, it isn’t that impressive, but it is the card they hold on too. Jesus challenges us today to be known for something rare but...

Seasoned to Perfection

Seasoned to Perfection

Where I live, BBQ is huge! Santa Maria Tri-tip is fantastic. Two ingredients make it so unique. First, it is cooked over oak wood. Second, is the special garlic seasoning that is rubbed into the meat. The combo of these two makes it seasoned to perfection. My mouth is...

Fire from Heaven

Fire from Heaven

We’ve all heard of preachers who preach hellfire and brimstone. We’ve also heard of fire refining precious metals to purify them, but hearing about fire from heaven may be a new one. It happened a few times in the Old Testament and predominantly with the prophet...
