From Head to Heart

We read these scriptures but we don’t internalize them. We know them by heart but we don’t always believe them for everything in our life. We restrict God in the areas that are more difficult. I myself am guilty. I can easily find myself meditating on the problem. Thank God I have an amazing wife [...]

All to Christ the Glory

Philemon 1 4 I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers, 5 hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints, 6 that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in [b]you [...]

Think on these things.

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, what ever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things.The things which you learned and heard and saw in me, [...]

Gave up His Spirit

John 19:28 After this, Jesus, [e]knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” 29 Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. 30 So when Jesus had [...]

All My Needs

Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. These verses are in accordance with the covenant that we have with Christ Jesus. We should have them memorized. They will comfort us when we need it. They bring peace to anxiety. This point is reiterated [...]

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Since starting my devotional blog, I have probably covered this verse 10 times: Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ[b] who strengthens me. I still have not learned it. So I will continue to talk about it in great detail. Growing in faith is a process, it takes time. I make plans and [...]

We’ve been there

Philippians 4:12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives [...]

Praise God in Every Situation

James 1:9 Let the lowly brother glory in his exaltation, 10 but the rich in his humiliation, because as a flower of the field he will pass away. 11 For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes. So the [...]

Should i stay or should i go?

Matthew 27:50And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. I love the wording here. King James Matthew 27:50 50Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. No man took Jesus’ life. He laid down his life. You can only give up [...]

Guard our Truths

Philippians 4:4Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard [...]
