Deuteronomy 31:8 “And the LORD, He it is that doth go before thee; He will be with thee, He will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.” Have you ever read a verse that just leaped off the page at you? When I read this verse in Deuteronomy last week, I…

Forgiveness Defined

Reading through Colossians last week, I read this verse and it hasn’t left my head since. ” Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross ” (Colossians 2:14). What a gift of love is given to us in…

Forever and Today

” But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: He is their strength in the time of trouble .” Psalm 37:39 For many people, the day that they accept Christ is a day that is more important than their birthday, more memorable than an anniversary.
