Are you facing terrifying waves from a mega storm in your life?

And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, ...

God intimately knows each of us from the inside out.

Are you busy serving others by washing their feet?

Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all. (John 13:8-10 ...

Are you shining brightly or corroding on your spiritual journey upon this earth?

And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. (Romans 13:11-12 KJV)

There are many snoozing or half-awake Christians crawling about on ...

Have you feasted at His banquet table?

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. (Psalms 23:5 KJV)

David was pronouncing, at God’s leading, in this verse how superbly God provides for His own; even in the presence of enemies.  He provides much more than we can even imagine or expect.  Indeed His provision is much more than we ever deserve; if we got what we ...

Jesus was with God in the beginning and alive for all eternity.

Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. (John 8:58 KJV)

Some people may think that Jesus Christ’s physical birth was His first appearance upon this earth.  That is far from the Truth of God’s Word.  This scripture verse is written in the present tense clearly stating a continual presence “Before Abraham was, I am…”  Before Abraham was is way back ...

Are you trying to mix oil and water?

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? (2 Corinthians 6:14 KJV)

This verse speaks of important doctrine that many have trouble understanding; in biblical times and today.  Paul used common or ordinary yoked animals as an illustration in learning this important truth.  Those who do much farming would certainly understand what problems would surface if they yoked ...

God richly blesses those who honor Him.

And Solomon the son of David was strengthened in his kingdom, and the LORD his God was with him, and magnified him exceedingly. (2 Chronicles 1:1 KJV)

The author of the book of Second Chronicles is most often credited to Ezra and this authorship is supported by Jewish tradition.  This scripture verse above was set in the beginning times of Solomon’s reign as King.  His father, David, brought Solomon up in his childhood ...

Do you personally know The One God of heaven and earth?

Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. (Isaiah 44:6 KJV)

Not only is God an earthly King, as this verse indicates spoken directly to, or in context to Jewish people, but is also a precept for God’s spiritual family alive upon this earth today who have been ...

Does Jesus want you to cast on the right side?

Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No. And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes. (John 21:5-6 KJV)

You and I are always on Jesus’s mind.  He yearns to provide for us and knows exactly what we ...
