Does God Have You Absolutely, Without Limitations?

“I will give your life to you as a prize in all places, wherever you go.” —Jeremiah 45:5 “This is the firm and immovable secret of the Lord to those who trust Him– “I will give your life to you….” What more does a man want than his life? It is the essential thing. “…your life…as a prize…” means that wherever you may go, even if it is into hell, you will come out with your life and nothing can harm it. So many of us are caught up in exhibiting things for others to see, not showing off property… read more…

The trial of your Faith

    “Show me wherefore thou contendest with me” (Job 10:2). Perhaps, O tried soul, the Lord is doing this to develop thy graces. There are some of thy graces which would never have been discovered if it were not for the trials. “God trains His soldiers… …not in tents of ease and luxury, but by turning them out and using them to forced marches and hard service. He makes them ford through streams, and swim through rivers and climb mountains, and walk many a weary mile with heavy knapsacks on their backs. Well, Christian, may not this account for… read more…

The Great Day of the Lord is Near

   I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the Lord. (Zephaniah 1:2) Ruin is coming, utter ruin; destruction from the Almighty is on its way.   Little children, keep yourselves from idols. (1 John 5:21) The servants of God all proclaim, There is no peace for the wicked. The expressions are figurative, speaking every where desolation; the land shall be left without inhabitants.

Those that think to divide their affections and worship between… read more…

More Than a Conqueror

  I had a freak accident. I wanted to get up out of my chair and I shoved the ottoman in front of my chair with my left leg. Something happened in my leg. With that one movement, I pulled my quadriceps.. And listen, this was not a month ago…it was 22 months ago. I have seen a doctor, an orthopedic doctor, a chiropractor and a physical therapist. They all give me a little piece of the puzzle, but I am only a little bit better. I can’t put on my shoe or sock on my left foot and I walk… read more…

I am Not Ashamed of the Gospel

A Christian friend posted the other day that she was “tired of the hate”.  By the rest of what she said, I could tell she thought no one should ever post anything that could sound negative to anyone else. That’s just not going to happen. It’s not possible to be a Christian and address the blatant sin in the world, and especially our culture and NOT sound negative. We have to do it! Maybe we need to be careful when we do speak out that we aren’t angry and let our angry tone come out in our words.  You CAN… read more…
