What spirit guides you in this world?

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (Romans 8:14 KJV)

Mankind in his natural state is led by his own lusts.  His own lusts naturally follow after the god of this world.  It is not a natural instinct or desire to follow after things of God.  Why, because after the fall of mankind, Adam in the Garden of Eden, God created man as ...

Have you made the right turn unto His narrow path?

Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. (2 Corinthians 7:9-10 KJV)

Paul was at home plate driving a “spiritual homerun” to those listening to ...

Have you made a spiritual U-turn towards the things of God?

Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;) (Galatians 1:1 KJV)

Supernatural strength from God brings victory.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippians 4:13 KJV)

This verse does not say I can do many things, or some things.  It says ALL things can be accomplished operating under the influence of God’s supernatural power.  We can accomplish anything according to His will for our life.  God’s will never operate against His commandments and precepts contained in His Word.

I quit smoking after many years of this unattractive habit.  ...

What thoughts are filling your mind today?

Can you see the handiwork of God in nature?

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. (Psalms 19:1 KJV)

The heavens vastly stretch out in the sky above us but do not reveal all the many holy and glorious characteristics of God and His throne in Heavens.  Our finite eyes and minds cannot possibly take in all the wonderful creations contained within the heavens.  We can ...

The hand of God is always in the details.

Now therefore, if it seem good to the king, let there be search made in the king’s treasure house, which is there at Babylon, whether it be so, that a decree was made of Cyrus the king to build this house of God at Jerusalem, and let the king send his pleasure to us concerning this matter.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (James 1:17 KJV)
