Awestruck by His Word
Psalm 119:161 (KJB) SCHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.

It Will Be Worth It All!

The Case is Closed!
Romans 8:33 (KJB) Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
Harsh accusations fly with a vengeance in this world.

The natural man is filled with contempt and hatred for the Truth of God. His ... Continue Reading →
Living for God in a “Politically Correct” World
This world is highly charged and ready to pounce upon individuals or entities who dare to hold dear to their heart godly biblical principles. The dark minions of the god of this world especially enjoy harassing and hounding persons who desire to follow the absolute authority of God in the midst of this fault finding and a corruptively divisive evil world.

Paul Was Spiritually at Ease
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. (2 Corinthians 4:8-10 KJV)
Trouble looms all around us. It is easy to lose hope shifting our view to peer intently upon dark storm clouds ... Continue Reading →
