The Current of Truth

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 A young man near and dear to my heart recently faced a tragic situation and I knew that over the days to come he would hear a lot of voices. I knew the adversary would want him to go adrift in a current of lies. So, those that love him began to flood him with truth, truth in words, truth in action and truth in just being there. In this age of “many voices” how does one[…]

Keep Your Joy

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 (NLT) You and I pass people everyday that, even though there may be a smile on their face, there’s no joy in their heart. It’s just human nature to want everyone to think you’ve “got it all together.” The truth is there are hurting people all around us and many who have just simply lost their joy. It’s so important to keep our[…]

The Best Teacher

But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true–it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ. 1 John 2:27 She’ll probably never know the full impact she had on me. School had been a struggle. It wasn’t that I couldn’t learn, but school just seemed so boring and uninteresting to me. It seemed I had found myself in a cycle of[…]

Tell Your Heart To Beat Again

1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT) “That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” We may never know all the reasons why Terah never left Haran to go onto the Promised Land. For whatever the reason, Terah stopped in Haran and never went on to possess the “The Place” God had for him. Maybe the 550 mile journey had taken too much of a toll on him, his household, servants and livestock, but maybe it was a broken heart.[…]

Freedom to Choose

“Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! Deuteronomy 30:19 Terah, does that name ring a bell to you? If you’re like most folks, it probably doesn’t. So who was Terah, you may be wondering? He was the father of Abraham, and the reason you probably don’t recognize him, is because from what we can see in scripture, he didn’t fulfill his destiny. It’s sad, but[…]

Victories Remembered

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith.” 1 John 5:4 I remember being at a Change of Command Ceremony as a young Marine when I really understood for the first time what battle streamers represented. I had noticed these brightly, multi-colored, ribbons hanging down from the Marine Corps flag before, but it wasn’t until that ceremony, when it was announced what each one stood for, that I got it. Each streamer represented previous battles and wars that the Marines had fought in victoriously throughout their history. In[…]

Smooth Grace

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”  2 Corinthians 12:9 The giant known as Goliath was issuing threats that had the whole Hebrew Army paralyzed with fear. 1 Samuel 17:11 says, “When Saul and all Israel heard these words of the Philistine, they were dismayed and greatly afraid.” The word “dismayed” here is from the Hebrew word “chathath” and it literally means “to terrify.” Sound familiar? Our adversary the devil loves to terrorize and[…]

Keep The Vision Alive

This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed. Habakkuk 2:3   In the latter part of the 1800′s a bridge builder by the name of John Roebling had what many considered a “crazy idea.” He had a vision of building a suspension bridge that would be long enough to connect New York City to Long Island. No one had ever dared to build a suspension bridge this long before. The engineering community thought[…]

Think On It

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8 I recently came across a book that I’ve known about for years, but something occurred to me that I had never thought about before. The book, Think and Grow Rich, was written by Napoleon Hill in 1937 which was the era our nation went through  known as “The Great Depression.” I’ve had opportunity to talk to some folks that were around during those times and from everything I’ve heard or[…]

Take The Leap

The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Psalm 126:3   I remember so vividly as just a young kindergartner the parade that came by my school one day honoring some astronauts that had recently returned from space. It was a pretty big deal for all of us as we poured out of the school and lined the street just to get a glimpse of a real-life astronaut. There they were sitting on the back of a convertible waving as they passed by. The space race was in full swing and anything to do[…]
