Stop Complaining

I love this story that Pastor Dale shared on Sunday. I think it describes where we are at in life right now as a society. Reminds me of the “first world problems” joke. Although the joke is not funny. There is so much we should be grateful for, and instead we choose to focus on […]

PRAISE the Lord

Philippians 4:13I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Logging in today I found out my wordpress had not updated. Since it was too old to run on my new PHP platform it threw an error code leaving me unable to login, or even see my page. I fought it hard with the Lord’s insight […]

Think on THESE things.

I felt the need to read all of Philippians 4 today. I will share with you these verses: 8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there […]

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 […]
