A Good Word

A Good Word

A good word from someone can often help us make it through the day.  It is also good to give good words to others. Proverbs 12:25 Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad. A Good Word A good word from someone can often help us make […]

Denying Self-Confidence

Denying Self-Confidence

We have to deny self of what the flesh desires or wants.  Being confident in this flesh can often lead to a downfall as it did for Peter. Matthew 26:35 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples. “Peter presume too […]

The Lord Giveth and Taketh Away

The Lord Giveth and Taketh Away

The Lord gave Job a lot of blessings in his life.  He had a good wife and ten healthy children.  He prayed for his children every day. Job 1:21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed […]

The Last Days

The Last Days

The last days are upon us.  Who knows when the Lord will come back?  We do know it could be any day now.  No man and no angel even knows when Jesus is coming back.  Only the Father know when the time is. Matthew 24:36-37 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, […]

Rules About Contentment - Advance Faith

Rules About Contentment – Advance Faith

Thomas Watson in his book titled The Art of Divine Contentment discusses in Chapter 14 about fifteen rules about contentment.  It is important for a Christian to learn contentment as the Apostle Paul describes here.  Without it, we will be majorly out of sorts with the world and the Lord. Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak […]

A Calling for All

A Calling for All

We often think of a calling as a call to preach the gospel or a call to missions.  In reality there is a calling for all to do something for the Lord. 1 Corinthians 7:20-21 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called. Art thou called being a servant? care not […]

A Willing Spirit

A Willing Spirit

The Lord is looking for a willing spirit in us anytime something needs to be done to accomplish His work.  When the Jews built the tabernacle, first they had to come or be available. Exodus 35:21 And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and […]

Strangers and Pilgrims

Strangers and Pilgrims

As strangers and pilgrims, we are not to let the lusts of the flesh overtake us.  A stranger is someone who does not belong wherever they are at. 1 Peter 2:11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; Strangers and Pilgrims As strangers and […]

A Rejected Nation

A Rejected Nation

The nation of Israel became a rejected nation after they decided they did not want what Christ came to offer. Matthew 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. A Rejected Nation The nation of Israel became a […]

The Joy of the Lord is Your Strength

The Joy of the Lord is Your Strength

People draw joy from many things but the Bible says the joy of the Lord is your strength for the Christian.  When we try and draw comfort and joy from the things of this world, we are going to end up woefully short of the mark. Nehemiah 8:10 Then he said unto them, Go your […]

In the King's Palace

In the King’s Palace

Even the little things are needed in the king’s palace.  This spider takes hold with her hands to the walls of the palace and is diligent. Proverbs 30:28 The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in king’s palaces. In the King’s Palace Even the little things are needed in the king’s palace.  This […]

Little Things Make Big Things

Little Things Make Big Things

Little things make big things in the eyes of God.  Little ants make big ant hills.  Little locusts can destroy whole fields.  The way they make big things is the little things work together. Proverbs 30:24  There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise: Zechariah 4:10  For who […]

A Bad Attitude

A Bad Attitude

Sometimes we have a bad attitude when someone does not pull their weight when we are trying to get something done. The same is true of the work of the Lord. Matthew 20:12-14  Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and […]

A Jealous God

A Jealous God

The Lord is a jealous God.  He wants our dedication and service.  He does not want to share us with any other.  A husband or wife wants fidelity in a marriage and does not want to share the other with any one else. Exodus 20:5-6 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve […]

A Two Sided Cloud

A Two Sided Cloud

This cloud that went between the children of Israel and the Egyptians was darkness to the Egyptians and light to the children of Israel. Exodus 14:19-20 And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and […]

Magnification Through Affliction

Magnification Through Affliction

Affliction can come in many forms in the saint’s life.  We don’t often look at it the way Thomas Brooks describes but in reality our life is magnified through affliction. Job 7:17-18 What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him? And that thou shouldest visit him […]

Don't Go Too Far for the Lord

Do Not Go Too Far for the Lord

Pharaoh wanted to make sure that the children of Israel do not go too far for the Lord.  The devil has the same goal for us today.  He is okay with us serving God a little bit. Exodus 8:28 And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice to the Lord your […]

Two Dried Fish

Two Dried Fish

The story of the lad who gave up two dried fish from his lunch may not make much sense to us in modern times.  Tearing up bread makes sense, but what about fish. Mark 6:38 He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two […]

Be Not Afraid

Be Not Afraid

Sometimes we get spoked by the things of life.  Instead of just trusting the Lord for everything, we chose rather to fear.  This shows a lack of faith. Matthew 14:27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. Be Not Afraid Sometimes we get spoked by […]

I Have Made Thee a God

I Have Made Thee A God

When the Lord told Moses that he made Moses a god to Pharaoh, he was referring to the fact that a heathen like Pharoh would naturally believe that only one of his gods could do the things that were happening. Exodus 7:1 And the Lord said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god […]

Forsake Me Not

Forsake Me Not

Sometimes we are begging God for help.  We try to do right but sometimes it just seems like we fall way short of the glory of God. Psalms 119:8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly. Forsake Me Not Sometimes we are begging God for help.  We try to do right but […]

  • I’ve Lived 641 Days February 10, 2016
    by: Julie Dominguez My husband and I have been through many things that most will never experience. I’ve stood by my sweet Daughter’s bedside and held her hands, stroked her beautiful face and hair for hours waiting for the morning to come so we could go home and everything be […]

  • I Have Prepared February 10, 2016
    Matthew 22:4 “Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.” In the verse above, a man was making a marriage for his son. In […]

  • Bringing Back the Stray February 9, 2016
    Matthew 18:11 “For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.” One of the things you will commonly deal with in church work is trying to bring back those who have gone astray. It is very difficult for parents to have to deal with a wayward […]

  • Back to Basics February 8, 2016
    by: Allen Domelle In the sports world, the teams that build legacies are teams that build on the fundamentals of the game. Some of the great teams in the past decade that have won multiple championships are known for their fundamental play. Other teams have failed because they tried to […]

  • Walking Wisely February 8, 2016
    Psalm 101:2 “I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.” The potential of your future will be determined by the way that you walk. A person who is careless in their daily […]

  • Look at the Fruit February 7, 2016
    Matthew 3:10 “And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.” Any farmer who has an orchard plants the trees so they will bear fruit. That is the only […]

  • Destroying the Spirit of a Relationship February 6, 2016
    Malachi 2:17 “Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?” In the last few […]

  • Wisdom in a Crisis February 5, 2016
    by: Sandy Domelle There will be times in life when we will all face a crisis. Our children need to see that we have the wisdom to know how to handle a crisis when it comes. Whether it is a life struggle, home emergency, or a sickness or death, how […]

  • God, the Reactor February 5, 2016
    Zechariah 1:3 “Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the LORD of hosts.” God is a very reasonable and fair God. When He created us, He created us with a […]

  • How Long Do I Need to Wait? February 4, 2016
    Habakkuk 1:2 “O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save!” One of the most discouraging things that many Christians face is not getting answers to prayers. The Devil loves to use the time when […]
