God Will Stand with You

God Will Stand with You

Stand up for God, and he will stand with you. King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon made an image of gold and ordered everyone to bow before it. Anyone who refused would be thrown into a blazing furnace. Three Jews refused—Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego—and they did not waver. Not only were they untouched by the flames, there was…

The Right Vision

The Right Vision

God, your rescuer, has the right vision. God, your rescuer, has the right vision. He also has the right direction. He made the boldest claim in the history of humanity when he declared, “I am the way” (John 14:6). People wondered if the claim was accurate. He answered their questions by cutting a path through the…

Just Call Him Jesus

Just Call Him Jesus

God’s plan for humanity… God’s Plan for humanity….it was crafted in the halls of heaven and carried out on the plains of earth. Only holiness could have imagined it. Only divinity could have enacted it. Only righteousness could have endured it. When God chose to reveal himself, he did so through a human body. The…

An Undeserved Gift

An Undeserved Gift

“Many people received God’s gift of life by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ.”  Romans 5:15 (NCV) We take our free gift of salvation and try to earn it or diagnose it or pay for it instead of simply saying “thank you” and accepting it. Ironic as it may appear, one of the…

Look Into God’s Face

Look Into God’s Face

Would you like to see God? Take a look at Jesus. Hebrews 1:3 says, “Jesus radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God.” In John 14:9 Jesus himself said, “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.” Anyone who has seen me weep has seen the Father weep. Anyone who has seen…

Your Divine Reversal

Your Divine Reversal

Move forward as if God is moving forward in your life. Give no quarter to the voices of doubt and fear. “Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint” Isaiah 40:31 Your…

Risk Believing in God

Risk Believing in God

A Devotional by Max Lucado When forced to stand at the crossroads of belief and unbelief, God’s people choose belief! God’s people risk believing!  Nowhere is this better exemplified than in Joshua’s story. You could argue that the central message of the book of Joshua is this headline:  “God keeps his promises.  Trust him.” Three times…

Trouble Comes with Life

Trouble Comes with Life

How do we survive the bitterly cold winds of life? When the account has no cash. When the marriage has no joy. When the crib is empty or the grave is occupied. Well Scripture offers a couple of starchy observations. First, no one gets a free pass. Trouble knocks at the door of us all. Someone needs…

Speaking in Silence

Speaking in Silence

God’s presence may be quiet, but he’ll show up. And he’ll listen. “My dear brothers and sisters, always be willing to listen and slow to speak.”  James 1:19 (TLB) You don’t have to speak to encourage. The Bible says, “It is best to listen much, speak little” (James 1:19 TLB). We tend to speak much…

Look Over Your Shoulder

Look Over Your Shoulder

We cannot go where God is not. Look over your shoulder; that’s God following you. Look into the storm; that’s Christ coming toward you. “‘Don’t be afraid,’ Jesus said. ‘Take courage. I am here!’” Matthew 14:27 Power inhabits these words. To awaken in an ICU and hear your husband say, “I am here.” To lose…
