A Righteous Branch

A Righteous Branch

You can tell a tree is living by the number of new branches that are shooting out in the spring. They show that life is coursing through the stump of the tree, and the root system is excellent. Sometimes those branches shoot out in wrong places and need to be pruned...

His Name Shall Be Called

His Name Shall Be Called

Baby names are a big thing. Every year the news reports the top names for tots. This year Sophia is the top name for a girl, and Liam is the top name for boys. If you ever had to pick a name for a child, it can be stressful. With one child, we decided as we drove to...

Don’t Miss the Signs

Don’t Miss the Signs

I spent the better part of a weekend installing Christmas lights on our house. Up and down the ladder hundreds of times to get things to look just right. I love this time of year, but it would be easy to rush through the season and miss what is important. Jesus came...

More Than Conquerors

More Than Conquerors

Did you know that many of the successful people you look up to struggle with success? It’s true. Whether it be an athlete, actor, business owner, or politician, they have a hard time handling it. One of the reasons is that they get to the pinnacle, and it isn’t...

What Are You Living For?

What Are You Living For?

Do you ever sit and ponder what your purpose on earth is? Ever ask yourself, “What are you living for?” Many people live their whole lives, never answering these questions. Henry David Thoreau famously said, “People live lives of quiet desperation.” What if you could...

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...
