Enlightened

“For with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:37 Luke Chapter 8 gives us a clear picture of two desperate people. Jairus had approached Jesus first when he fell at his feet and begged Him to come to his home. His daughter was dying, and he needed a miracle that day. As Jesus turned to go with him, the woman with the issue of blood came from behind to touch Jesus and received her healing. Can you imagine the anxiety Jairus must have felt as Jesus stopped to get this lady’s testimony? He knew just how sick his daughter was,[…]

The Worshiper In You

“But the time is coming–indeed it’s here now–when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.” John 4:23 If you’re like me you find yourself “looking” for things from time to time. Whether it’s the car keys, a pair of shoes, or a jacket, it just seems to be a part of life. With that thought in mind, it seem so astonishing to think that God could be “looking” for anything. Just the thought that our omniscient, all knowing, Heavenly Father is looking or seeking[…]

Nothing’s Too Hard

“I am the LORD, the God of all the peoples of the world. Is anything too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27 Have you ever stopped to consider what is harder for God to do, forgive our sins and save us, or give us abundant overflowing life? Certainly at first thought, my answer would be to save us from eternal damnation would be the hardest. The Apostle Paul makes a great point in Romans 8:32 as he sets out to answer this question. His conclusion is that “Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for[…]

Nothing To Lose

“Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” Psalm 34:8 I remember as a young boy having a burden for an uncle who did not profess to be a believer in Jesus. He and my aunt lived several states away, and it was only on rare occasion that we got to see them. I remember one particular summer when they were down for a visit, I began to have a particularly strong burden for him. He wasn’t much for talking, so I was trying to think of some way I could[…]

Make The Call

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3 How fast could you dial 911 in the event of an emergency? Pretty quick I would imagine. Even little ones know how to dial those three famous numbers. When a situation arises beyond one’s control and there is danger or an emergency, we know those numbers will bring the much needed help we seek. Jeremiah 33:3 tells us of another call we can make anytime we need and that’s directly to God. And, what I find so great[…]

He Is Willing

When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” Then Jesus put out [His] hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. Matthew 8:1-3 Probably the number one question among believers is “What is God’s will for my life?” I’ve heard it said that faith begins at the knowledge of God’s will. In Matthew chapter eight, we see a man encounter Jesus with this same question but in a very specific[…]

Abundant Living

“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” John 10:10 (Amplified Bible) There is a lot of talk these days about deficits and deficit spending. It’s hard for me to understand how and why any government, business, or entity of any kind can continue to spend out of what they do not have. Sadly in the same way people everywhere are spending their lives out of a deficit.They put on a smile when deep down inside[…]

The True Power Source

“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8 Boy am I thankful for air conditioning. With record heat waves, I can’t imagine life without this comfort that many of us have come to take for granted. Isn’t it amazing to consider that the world as we know it today would not have been possible without electricity? All of the major comforts we enjoy today were only made possible as a result[…]

Their Quandary

“About this time, Abimelech came with Phicol, his army commander, to visit Abraham. “God is obviously with you, helping you in everything you do,” Abimelech said.” Genesis 21:22 The world just simply doesn’t know what to do with us as believers in Christ. It seems that the more they try to mock us or swindle us, we just get stronger and better and such was the case with Abraham and Issac in Genesis Chapter 21. Issac, the long awaited son of Abraham and Sarah was finally born and to celebrate him being weaned from his mother, Abraham called for a[…]

The Right Hold Up

God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. Romans 5:20 (NLT) A Pastor friend of mine was just recently sharing a story with me about his friend Jorge, who was held up at gunpoint. A young man pulled out a huge hand gun, stuck it in Jorge’s neck and said “Give me your IPad,” to which Jorge complied. The robber was quickly identified through photos and was later arrested and Jorge’s IPad was recovered. Although this could have been the end[…]
