    Christian Devotional – March 15, 2016

    Read Joshua chapter 12 VERSE: Joshua 12:6–Moses, the servant of the Lord, and the Israelites conquered them. And Moses the servant of the Lord gave their land to the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh to be their possession. TRUTH: Joshua takes a small break to go back and recount some of their history. The people have had great military success in the land and they have seen the fruitful results of obedience to God. So, this was a perfect time to go back and remind the people of just how faithful God had been to help them destroy their enemies. This obedience and blessing started with Moses…

    Christian Devotional – September 22, 2015

    Read James chapter 1 VERSE: James 1:9–Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position. TRUTH: In this verse, humble circumstances is referring to a lack of material possessions. As believers, we need to be much less concerned about the quantity of our material possessions here on earth and much more concerned about our relationship with the Creator of the Universe. We are a child of the King and as such, we have a very high position, regardless of the physical things that we have on this earth. We must come to the place where we recognize our value and measure of success is based on our…

    Christian Devotional – September 28, 2014

    Read 2 Samuel chapter 5 VERSE: 2 Samuel 5:10–And he became more powerful, because the Lord God Almighty was with him. TRUTH: To what do we attribute our success? Do we tell others it’s because we are smart, or beautiful, or because of our strong work ethic? Truthfully, we must recognize that while all those are great characteristics, ultimately, it is God who works and moves in our lives to give us the success that we have in every area of our lives. We must be careful to give Him the praise that He is due and not become prideful in thinking that we have done things on our own.…

    Christian Devotional – May 1, 2013

    VERSE: Ezekiel 17:24–All the trees of the forest will know that I the Lord bring down the tall tree and make the low tree grow tall. I dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish. “I the Lord have spoken and I will do it.” TRUTH: The Lord is the one who brings about prosperity. He is the one who controls the outcome of all that we do. Do we trust in our own strength or are we trusting in Him? Since He is in control of the outcomes, we are to trust in Him and follow Him and allow Him to do what He feels is…
