THE WINNING SIDE

“Dear woman,” Jesus said to her, “your faith is great. Your request is granted.” And her daughter was instantly healed. Matthew 15:28   Today, more and more believers are realizing that the “preaching of the Law” as the “way” to live the Christian life is the wrong side, and instead “the Law of the Spirit” and the “Gospel of Grace” is the right side. John 1:17 says, “For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness (grace and truth) came through Jesus Christ.” The Apostle Paul told us that the Law could only point out our faults but was[…]

SUPER ON YOUR NATURAL

“They all ate as much as they wanted, and afterward, the disciples picked up twelve baskets of leftovers.”  Matthew 14:20 Anything “superhero” is all the rage and has been for decades. In the early days, superhero comic books would fly off the shelves almost as fast as store managers could get them out, and now, even today, superhero movies continue to set box office records. So why so much interest in the world of superheroes? Could it be there’s something in us that just simply loves the idea of man being enabled to do something superhuman? Scripture is full of[…]

OUR STRONG TOWER

 “The name of the Lord is a strong fortress;     the godly run to him and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10   Most all of us can remember being afraid of “the boogie man” when we were children. For me, he was that invisible monster under my bead. I can remember walking out of my room, turning out the lights and then making a bee-line straight to my dad’s leg on which I’d wrap myself around. Turning back to that dark bedroom I would stick my tongue out toward “the monster.” It was my childlike way of letting the boogie man know I was safe[…]

PROMISE OF PROTECTION

“The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;     my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.” Psalm 18:2  They say that a mama bear with small cubs is something you don’t want to mess with. A North Carolina family discovered this as they let their two dogs out to potty late one afternoon. Backyard video cameras captured the footage of their dogs spotting a mamma black bear in their backyard and giving chase.  While the two cubs climbed up a tree, the mama bear went into attack mode and ran the dogs off without injury. Black bears, not[…]

THE TURNAROUND

 “The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.” Genesis 39:2   From the rebuke of his father, the hatred of his brothers, the false accusations from Potiphar’s wife, and prison; Joseph’s life looked like a complete mess. It was not at all like he had thought things were going to work out for him based on the dreams he had. Two dreams, back to back, led him to believe that there was greatness in his future, but instead he was experiencing the worst kind of failure. But,[…]

GOOD FRUIT

“A tree is identified by its fruit. If a tree is good, its fruit will be good. If a tree is bad, its fruit will be bad. Matthew 12:33  Bill and Bette had no idea what the little farm they had just purchased would one day become. The year was 1953 and the young couple couldn’t wait to start planting sweet corn in the fertile soil of Southern New Jersey. Bill started selling that corn from the back of a wagon, and as the family grew, so did the farm.  From corn to apple trees, peach trees, cherry trees, blueberries[…]

HOLD OUT

“Then he said to the man, “Hold out your hand.” So, the man held out his hand, and it was restored, just like the other one!”  Matthew 12:13 All eyes were on Jesus, but not all were looking to see what great thing He might do next. There were skeptics in the crowd who wanted to do nothing but catch Jesus in a trap. They weren’t interested in anyone being healed, they just wanted to protect their religious traditions. For the man needing to be healed, he was faced with a choice. As Jesus called him to the front of the synagogue,[…]

REST FOR THE WEARY

“Then Jesus said, ‘Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest’.”   Matthew 11:28 As John the Baptist found himself wasting away in prison his disappointed and weary heart led him to question things.  Was Jesus actually the Messiah at all? Where do you turn when life’s circumstances and disappointments leave you weary? The answer isn’t found in our enemy and the things of this world, and it sure isn’t found in doubting or questioning our faith. The answers can only be found in Jesus Himself. There will be times and[…]

EVER WATCHING

“So, don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.” Matthew 10:31 According to People.com, “A Southern California man was in for a howling surprise recently when he rescued what he believed to be a puppy and soon discovered that it was no snuggly house pet after all. While walking his dog in a canyon area on the man came across an abandoned furry creature, Darriel Walker, a representative at San Diego Human Society, tells PEOPLE. With no hesitation, Walker says the man brought the little “puppy” back home before the Humane Society arrived[…]

STANDING ON THE PROMISES

“The words and promises of the Lord are pure words, Like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified seven times.” Psalm 12:6  As a young sheep herder, Russell Carter developed a serious heart condition and felt that if God did not heal him, he would surely die. Russell grabbed hold of healing promises throughout scripture, fervently taking his stand in believing God for his complete and total healing. Russell did indeed experience that healing and vowed to be used by God in any way the Lord wanted. He later went on from sheep herding to become a professor of Natural Science, Civil Engineering, Chemistry[…]
