Where is Your Anchor Moored?
1 John 2:15 (KJB) Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Professed love and thankfulness is surely abundant in the air wherever you find yourself on this Thanksgiving Day.
Two questions to ask yourself about your love:
Is it wrapped up in things and places found in this world?
Is your love based upon a relationship with God ... Continue Reading →

Can God Use You?
Jeremiah 13:10-11 (KJB) This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing. 11 For as the girdle cleaveth to the loins of a man, so have I caused to cleave unto me the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah, saith ...

Six Things the Lord Hates
Proverbs 6:16-19 (KJB) These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: 17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, 19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
If you approach professing Christians today to discuss things God hates a reply from some might ... Continue Reading →

Will Foolish People Ever Learn?
Psalm 94:8-11 (KJB) Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise? 9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see? 10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know? 11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
God’s Word has much to say about fools ... Continue Reading →

God is the Author of Spiritual Blessings
Ephesians 1:3 (KJB) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
Notice this verse does not say some spiritual blessings. Or a few spiritual blessings. Or a single blessing.
This verse says ALL spiritual blessings are given to us in heavenly places.
Yes! Heaven does contain ALL of God’s blessing because it is a place that is ... Continue Reading →

You Can Rightly Divide Truth
2 Timothy 2:15 (KJB) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
The word correct, or to “correct” another can be defined as “to set straight” or to correspond or align another with an absolute standard of truth.
Anything in this world which is not aligned in context to coincide with Truth of God is not absolute or set. It is not “nailed ... Continue Reading →

Selfless Serving Honors God
Acts 20:35 (KJB) I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Paul knew all about working hard in tranquil times as well as in the middle of tough circumstances. He never looked at a situation through the lens of his own needs or safety but always had ... Continue Reading →

The Green Pasture or the Manure Pit
Psalm 23:2 (KJB) He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
God cares for mankind’s every need. Both physical and spiritual needs. God did not usher in the possibility of salvation so that man can ruin and rot but he made salvation possible so whosoever believes through faith can be spiritually refreshed and robust despite the condition of his immediate circumstances.
God always leads the regenerated ... Continue Reading →

One Fold, One Shepherd
John 10:16 (KJB) And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
“Other sheep I have…” refers specifically to Gentiles. Jesus Christ was a Jew. The Jews were natural born into the fold of God and the Gentiles were a fertile field waiting to be harvested. After a time, the Gentiles were included by ... Continue Reading →

God’s Music is Refreshing
1 Samuel 16:23 (KJB) And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.
Take a moment to consider the power of music as described in this verse. David played music which caused an evil spirit to depart. Think of the power which was at work here in ... Continue Reading →
