She seeks the Finest for Her Family

Proverbs 31:13-15 (KJB) She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. 14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar. 15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

The thirty-first Proverb speaks about a virtuous woman.  Throughout the entire Proverb, she seeks the best for her family.  She rises first and goes to ...

He Departed Without Being Desired

He Departed Without Being Desired

2 Chronicles 21:20 (KJB) Thirty and two years old was he when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years, and departed without being desired. Howbeit they buried him in the city of David, but not in the sepulchres of the kings.

 This verse is a sad commentary about the end of a man’s life whose name was Jehoram.

Imagine a modern-day epitaph engraved on a gravestone stating he “departed without being desired…” ...

Words falling to The Ground

Words falling to The Ground

1 Samuel 3:19 (KJB) And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground.

The words of God are eternally powerful and personally potent.  Not just some of His Word, but every word.  Sadly, some people choose to be casual or unintentional with God’s Word by allowing some or all His precious words to fall from their ears and never penetrate in their heart.

Not Samuel, ...

Daniel Trusted God in The Details of Life

Daniel 6:10 (KJB) Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.

Isn’t it so easy to get lost in the myriad of details in this busy life?

Here was Daniel, a young man in the best ...

There Is No Blush Factor

Jeremiah 6:13-15 (KJB) For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely. 14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace. 15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they ...

Faith Pleases God

November 23rd, 2018

Faith Pleases God

Hebrews 11:6 (KJB) But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Faith is perpetual spiritual fuel.  It allows a repentant man to be eternally pleasing and spiritually attractive to God.  It is a spiritual propellant driving a man to his knees and unto a personal relationship with God.

Faith is placing confidence in the ...

Sorrowful but Rejoicing

November 22nd, 2018

Sorrowful but Rejoicing

2 Corinthians 6:10 (KJB) As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

Only a genuine child of God can understand and apply the truths found in this verse.  How is it possible for a man to sorrow, yet at the same time rejoice?  Be poor, yet enjoying many riches?  To have little or nothing and yet have everything?

To lost hearts, this verse seems to contradict itself.  ...

As We Learn of God Grace and Peace Multiplies

2 Peter 1:2 (KJB) Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.

As we read this greeting of Paul a child of God understands that personally knowing God does bring His eternal brand of supernatural peace and grace to work in his life and heart.  Having God’s spiritual character makes it natural for a man or woman of God to be eternally ...

Motivated by Their Own Lusts

Motivated by Their Own Lusts

2 Peter 3:3-4 (KJB) Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

There are many scorners working in this world motivated by their own selfish lusts rather than being led by truths and direction of God. They pick ...

Transfigured Before Him

Transfigured Before Him

Matthew 17:1-3 (KJB) And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, 2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.

What an awesome and glorious sight transpired before Peter, James, and John who, out of all the disciples, ...
