Living King

Phil.3:10 “I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead…” (emphasis added).

We start today’s devotional with our final thought from yesterday which is that every eyewitness of Jesus’ resurrection held on to their testimony until death. The twelve gave their lives for the testimony that Jesus is alive. When I think about Thomas, ‘doubting Thomas’, I am totally blown away. Read the rest of this entry

Think Big!

Matt. 17:20 “Because you’re not yet taking God seriously,” said Jesus. “The simple truth is that if you had a mere kernel of faith, a poppy seed, say, you would tell this mountain, ‘Move!’ and it would move. There is nothing you wouldn’t be able to tackle.” (MSG)

God’s Word is loaded with promises and God wants us to look for them and build our lives on these promises. When we build our lives on God’s promises, our lives become stable. Regardless of the storms, our lives are consistent. Read the rest of this entry

Unwavering

Heb.10:23Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.”

We will kick off today’s devotional with our final thought from yesterday which is, God always always always keeps His Word. God is not like us humans; we do not always keep our word. Sometimes we mean to keep our word, but we do not always get to keep our word. Read the rest of this entry

His Pleasure & Promise

Psalm 16:11 “Because of you, I know the path of life, as I taste the fullness of joy in your presence. At your right side I experience divine pleasures forevermore!” [TPT].

I was in a mentorship session with about forty or so other pastors some time ago with a great man of God in the United States. And he had us introduce ourselves to each other because we did not know each other. Read the rest of this entry

Trustworthy & True

Psalm 111:7 “All God accomplishes is flawless, faithful, and fair, and his every word proves trustworthy and true.” (TPT)

There are things that God wants to do with you that sound crazy. There are also things that God has told you to do for Him that look crazy to you. Are you going to trust God, take the step and look like an idiot? Read the rest of this entry

Met In Him

Heb. 10:23 “Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.”

Do you believe that the Lord will do what He has said? Elizabeth said something that is hugely profound to Mary in Luke 1:45 “You are blessed because you believed that the Lord would do what he said.” (emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Dear Woman

John 20:14 “She turned to leave and saw someone standing there. It was Jesus, but she didn’t recognize him.”

The only thing that could satisfy the thirst Mary had was Jesus. Like we said yesterday, Mary was not impressed with the linen wrappings, or with the head covering that was majestically arranged, and she was not even impressed with the angels. Read the rest of this entry

Him Alone

Isa. 55:1 “Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no money come, buy grain and eat. Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost [simply accept it as a gift from God].” (AMP).

It is possible to come to the waters and not drink if you are not thirsty. Interestingly, it is only what you thirst for that can satisfy your thirst. Nothing else can. Peter and John had left but Mary could not leave, she was thirsty because, at this point, all Mary had was Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

Clear Confidence

John 3:36…whoever accepts and trusts God’s Son gets in on everything, life complete and forever! (But) the person who avoids and distrusts God’s Son is in the dark and doesn’t see life…” (MSG, paraphrased, emphasis added)

Our walk with God is a walk of faith. When you step out and walk with God in faith, God gives you clarity. When clarity comes, you take your next step. Some answers are waiting for you on step five, but you are on step two. God says, take the next step, move to step three. But you are insisting on getting answers now. Read the rest of this entry

Faith Moves

Matt. 5:8 When you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right, then you can see God in the outside world.” (MSG).

Your heart and your mind determine what you see through your eyes. It is not your physical eyes that determine what you see. It is your heart and your mind that determines what you see not your eyes. Read the rest of this entry
