Tuned for His Use

“His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” (Matthew 25:23). How would you like to hear that from Jesus? How would you like to hear that He is…

An Attitude of Worship

Recently I stumbled across a verse that has really spoken to my heart. Oftentimes I – and probably you too – find a verse that I am truly blessed by that is primarily meant to mean one thing, but to me, it has a completely different meaning. This is the case for this devotion’s verse.…

A Personal God

Recently, I was shopping at a large bookstore – not even a religious one – and I couldn’t help but notice the vast array of Bibles they had for sale.  There were so many to choose from, and I was blown away!  I’m not even talking about the different versions that are out there now. …

The Lord Provides Strength

Isaiah 40:31 “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Our days are never the same. Unlike the film Groundhog Day where the unfortunate character must live the same day over and over…
