A Sure Foundation

There can be no doubt that there is a demonic warfare being waged against families, especially Christian families. The devil has been very successful in separating husbands and wives, fostering rebellion and worldliness in many children, disintegrating family unity and time together, causing the home to no longer be a safe and protective sanctuary from the world but influe...

Faith Over Feelings

It's not a sin when we feel the initial impact of fear. Many things happen that can cause us to be afraid and be fearful a bad report, imminent loss, a problem with a loved one and so on. We all go through those things. But the problem comes in when we give place to the fear and let it take over affecting what we do. We react out of fear rather than stand in faith in the f...

“Upon this Rock I will build my church”(Matthew 16:18)

Church was God's idea, not mans'.

“For You are my Hope”(Psalm 71:5)

The antidote to discouragement is hope and our hope is not just "in" Jesus, but our hope "is" Jesus a hope that comes from an abiding, intimate and surrendered relationship with our Lord. The word hope means to have a desire of good with the expectation of obtaining it. Hope without expectation is hollow and without substance. But hope based on the foundation of the truth ...

If I promised you a check for a million dollars, how would you take that? Hopefully you wouldn't take me serious, have a good laugh and pray for me. But if I promised that the next time I see you that I would greet you warmly, hopefully you would believe that and anticipate our meeting. The difference between those two promises is that in the first promise, I have no resou...

When “Not” to Fight

There are many times in God's Word where we are to fight to fight the good fight of faith, to fight in spiritual warfare, enduring a great fight of afflictions. And that fight takes courage. But sometimes, it takes just as much courage not to fight! In the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5, Jesus spoke that if someone slapped you on the right cheek turn the other to them as...

Coming against the plague

There are so many great aspects to technology and scientific advances. One of these advances in science and medical research has been the eradication of many diseases and plagues that have killed so many people throughout the centuries. Some still remain but most have been eliminated. However, there are still plagues around, but not so much of a medical nature but more of...

"Faith through the roof"

In the second chapter of Mark's Gospel, there is a story of four men who tried to get to Jesus to heal their paralytic friend. As Jesus was speaking in a home, they tried to get in but the crowd was too large and they could not even squeeze their way through. But they would not be denied. They went up on the roof, made a hole big enough to let down their friend who was on ...
