"Hard words indeed break no bones, but many a heart has been broken by them." - Matthew Henry
We live in a world filled with reckless words - cutting, killing, careless, and irresponsible words which are spoken rashly, quickly, hastily, inadvisably, or indiscreetly. The result? There are many broken people who are seeking desperately to function in everyday life and yet cannot seem to move ahead. They look around at others and wonder - What makes me so different? What is holding me… Continue

Would not deny,
Their faith in you.

Rivers of Living Water will flow?? (Devotional 70 of 365)
“Rivers of Living Water will flow??”
Old school Christians say that a true sign of a Christian Conversion
is when someone “weeps” when they receive Christ as Lord and Savior.
I am a “weeper”, some have told me that I have the PASSION of Christ,
I have “wept” many times in sharing the Gospel, when I have looked at people
and when I… Continue

"Whoever or whatever controls a person's mind ultimately has the power to dictate the affairs and outcome of that person's life. Thus, if a person allows his mind to be doused with panic or fear, he is putting fear in charge of his life. Because Paul wanted his readers to remain in peace regardless of the tumultuous events that transpired around them, he urged them not to allow fear from these shocking and distressful events to penetrate their minds, will, and emotions." - Rick… Continue

Have you been anointed by God?
ANOINT describes the procedure of rubbing or smearing a person or thing, usually with oil, for the purpose of healing, setting apart, or embalming. A person can anoint himself, be anointed, or anoint another person or thing. While olive oil is the most common element mentioned in the Bible for use in anointing, oils produced from castor, bay, almond, myrtle, cyprus, cedar, walnut, and fish were also used. In Esther 2:12, for… Continue

THE WORD WAS GOD
John 1:1 is probably the strongest passage in the New Testament for declaring the deity of Jesus Christ. Because of this many who deny this biblical doctrine, especially cultists, have attempted to undercut it by arguing that this passage only teaches that Jesus is “a god” and so not fully Deity. This confused position fails on at least two grounds. Such a view is polytheistic, the belief in more than one god. Second, it betrays a misunderstanding of Greek grammar.… Continue

How to have the God Kind of Faith SO GOD CAN WORK
YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND " WHO" GOD IS!!!
GOD IS LOVE!
Gal 5:6 "For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love."
You can't do it by The Law---Circumcision---The Law shows Sin and Only Through Faith can we Walk, get clean Unto the Law. The Law is Holy and in His Salvation through Faith and Obedience by His 'Faith' and 'Salvation' can we fulfill the… Continue

The Necessity of Forgiveness
Read: - Matthew 18:21-22
It may seem strange that the first world of Jesus on the cross was one of forgiveness. It is easily understandable by those who are acquainted with the record of his public ministry. Jesus left no doubt in the minds of his hearers that a spirit of forgiveness is necessary if faith is to be real.
On one occasion Peter came to him. “Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him?” he asked; “till seven times?”… Continue

Job 36:22 tells us - "Behold, God exalteth by His power..." 1 Peter 5:6 informs us that God has a proper time - a "due time" - when He exalts the humble.
So many are running ahead of God's "best" time and exalting themselves. Hence, they are not properly prepared and oftentimes end up falling flat on their faces.
What will it be for you? Are you in a hurry to be in the "limelight" ? Or will you wait for God's fit time to promote you?
In Job 7:17, Job inquired -… Continue

6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but my ears you have pierced; burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require. 7 Then I said, "Here I am, I have come-- it is written about me in the scroll. 8 I desire to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart." 9 I proclaim righteousness in the great assembly; I do not seal my lips, as you know, O Lord. 10 I do not… Continue

1 I said, "I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth as long as the wicked are in my presence." 2 But when I was silent and still, not even saying anything good, my anguish increased. 3 My heart grew hot within me, and as I meditated, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: 4 "Show me, O Lord, my life's end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life. 5 You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span… Continue

They are more than the hairs of my head, and my heart fails within me. 13 Be pleased, O Lord, to save me; O Lord, come quickly to help me. 14 May all who seek to take my life be put to shame and confusion; may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace. 15 May those who say to me,… Continue

1 I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. 2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. 3 He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord. 4 Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods. 5 Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders… Continue

Yes, man is looking for good in anything and everything but God. But, wait a minute, there is a group who are yearning for the chief good in life. They will go to whatever measures necessary in order to get it. These people are the godly, and what they are desiring is the Favor of… Continue
