The Struggle is Real
Romans 7:15 (KJB) For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
It is the story of my life and yours too, if you are honest, the opportunity to sin is ever before us calling out to our flesh.

There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. (Psalms 33:16-17 KJV)
There is no Army or Special Forces, Superman, or Batman and Robin, or Hollywood hero who can usher in enough prowess ... Continue Reading →
Do you need a spiritual temperature check?
For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. (1 John 5:3 KJV)
As we love God naturally we desire to keep His commandments. The more we love God the more earnestly we desire to keep His commandments. Our love for Him, His Word, and His will and way manifests itself in our life by the degree of our obedience and willingness to live ... Continue Reading →
Abraham was elderly, in his eighties and still yearning for a son, for an heir to carry on His namesake. Sara was still barren these many years and Abraham had not yet received the son God had promised to provide. The only child to have grown up in their household was Eliezer, who was born to a servant, not of Abraham’s loins.
Both he and Sara became impatient, living by sight, losing all faith in this promise of God ... Continue Reading →
