The Maker

He calls the stars by name, yet has every hair on your head numbered.

He created the heavens and earth and everything within and beyond, yet He values you enough to die so you may see Him face to face.

He Goes Before Us

He Goes Before Us

What a beautiful picture of pure agape love...

As Jesus proceeded to His destiny, His outgoing concern, care and compassion led Him to repeatedly encourage and prepare those close to Him for what was ahead. Though fully aware of the tremendous task He was assigned and must complete, in His purest form of love, He was selflessly comforting and preparing His disciples for the pain they would face in the midst of His agony.

No matter what lies ahead, be encouraged that God has already prepared the way and our future lies with Him...

"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." (Deuteronomy 31:8)

"Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." (Isaiah 41:10)

Lord God

Lord God,

We commit our whole selves to You and pray that you will sanctify us according to Your will for us....that You will provide for us strength to hold our thoughts captive in Christ and dwell on the things which are holy, righteous and pleasing to unto you.

Create in us a clean heart and a pure mind...spare us temptations and deliver us from all that is unholy and unworthy in our service to You.

You are our shield and our source of joy, peace and strength and salvation...and we praise You, for You are a holy, righteous, all-powerful, all-knowing and all-seeing Father...and You love us and meet us exactly where we are.

Lord, we pray You will bring us from glory to glory today and every day...and fill in the gap where we fall short with Your Eternal Grace.

The Good Shepherd

The Good Shepherd...

He knows His sheep and we hearken to His voice.

He goes before us and carefully prepares the way...we follow He is the way, truth and life.

He is the restorer of our soul; the keeper of our Spirit.

Forgiveness is a God Ordained Priority

Forgiveness Is A God Ordained Priority

Forgiveness is a is a true expression of agape love and it honors God.

Understanding forgiveness is key and leads us to experience the fearless freedom it offers.

Forgiveness is not minimizing, excusing, or agreeing with the offense. We must see sin for what it is and recognize who the true offender is. Remember, our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual wickedness in high places...against the author of anger, fear, frustration, hurt, pain, sin and confusion.

Separating the sin from the sinner opens up our heart to forgiveness of our fellow human allows God to shed His Healing Light and Truth on the stronghold of the offense...and the darkness loses its power.

Forgiveness does not always lead to reconciliation. Jehovah IS Holy and He calls us to holiness. He also calls us to guard our hearts. There are certain relationships and circumstances that we should not expose ourselves to because they are not born of The Holy Spirit. We can forgive the and pray for the sinner...but must diligently separate ourselves from sin.

If we seek God and His truth...listen to the whisper of The Holy Spirit...He will enable us to forgive others and ourselves...lead us to the people, places and situations that He ordains, according to His purpose.

We have certainly all sinned and fall short of God's glory. But, as believers, we are to be imitators of Christ. And if we make forgiveness a priority, we will indeed experience peace, healing, wholeness and freedom...and honor Him with a clean heart.

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." (Ephesians 6:12)

"Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye." (Colossians 3:13)

"For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness." (1 Thessalonians 4:7)

"Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life." (Proverbs 4:23)

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:32)

"For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints." (1 Corinthians 14:33)

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)

"Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children." (Ephesians 5:1)

"And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors." (Matthew 6:12)

Cure for the Troubled Heart

Cure for the Troubled Heart

May we turn to The Lord when our hearts are heavy...for He is our source of strength, joy, peace and and everlasting salvation.

He is the Alpha and Omega; the Great I Am...He designed and breathed life into us...He alone completely knows our need and has the capacity to fix and fill us...eternally.

Lord, we run to You.

"From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I." (Psalm 61:2)

"You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand." (Psalm 16:11)

"...Do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength." (Nehemiah 8:10)

"Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" (Matthew 6:27)

"...Casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7)

Walk in Faith

Walk in Faith...

May we have a heart of fearless faith in our Holy Heavenly Father...ears that discern the whisper of The Holy Spirit...and steps ordained and directed by Jesus Christ.

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13)

"For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith." (1 John 5:4)

"But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness." (1 Timothy 6:11)

"I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on your laws." (Psalm 119:30)

Heavenly Father,

We praise You and thank You for the atoning sacrifice and the miraculous resurrection of Jesus Christ...that we may be forgiven, redeemed, justified and set free...and one day come to see You face to face.

We praise You for Your endless grace and marvelous mercy...

And we pray that you will clothe us with love, courage and strength so we may spread the glorious news of The Gospel of Jesus Christ...that others may also find Him in the Mystery...and through Him, be forever redeemed.

In The Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,


Colossians 2:2
"My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ..."

Ephesians 3:8
"Although I am less than the least of all the Lord's people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the boundless riches of Christ."

Ephesians 3:16
"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being."

Colossians 1:14
" whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins..."

Romans 3:24
"...and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus."

Holy, Holy, Holy!

Holy, Holy, Holy!

"In the year that king Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple.
Above him stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is Jehovah of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, Jehovah of hosts." (Isaiah 6:1-5)

In Isaiah's vision and encounter with Jehovah, the omniscient majesty and holiness of The Lord of Hosts completely overcame him...left him feeling "undone" and acutely aware of how unholy he was in his own humanity.

Let us not just be aware of the presence of our God...but seriously acknowledge and cherish that He Is Holy, Holy, Holy - an infinitely Holy Trinity beyond anything else in existence!

Let us praise, honor, glorify and worship Him in this manner...for He Is Holy, Holy, Holy...He Is high and lifted up...and He Is Worthy!

"There is no one holy like the LORD; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God." (1 Samuel 2:2)

"...and they were calling to one another: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory." (Isaiah 6:3)

"Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy." (Psalm 99:5)

"...and they have no rest day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come." (Revelation 4:8)

"And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground." (Exodus 3:5)

Think On These Things

Think On These Things...

"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you." (Philippians 4:8-9)

It can be difficult in our humanity to rid ourselves of the clutter in our thoughts. Circumstances and situations can evoke emotions within us that can be difficult to cope with and lead to unholy thought processes.

It takes an active, conscious effort to partner with God in the bring every thought captive to the obedience of think, practice and dwell on truth and that which is holy and pleasing unto God.

But when we make the Godly choice...when we are obedient...He is faithful to bless us, for He promises His enduring peace when we think on these things.

"We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ..." (2 Corinthians 10:5)

Wait Upon The Lord

Wait Upon The Lord

May we be unmovable in Truth and hold tight to His Righteousness...

May we sow from The Spirit...draw our strength from Jesus and never grow weary or faint in our service to our King.

And may our Holy Heavenly Father continue to sanctify, restore, transform and sustain us as we prepare for our final destination.

"Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain." (1 Corinthians 15:58)

"Nevertheless, the righteous will hold to their ways, and those with clean hands will grow stronger." (Job 17:9)

"And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good." (2 Thessalonians 3:13)

"'He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.'" (Revelation 3:21)

God Hears His Servants' Prayers

"The LORD said to him: "I have heard the prayer and plea you have made before me; I have consecrated this temple, which you have built, by putting my Name there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there."

Psalm 145:19

No Greater Love Than His

No Greater Love then His

Our worth is decided by God and God alone...His appraisal of our value is the atoning sacrifice of His one and only Son, Jesus Christ.

God planned our existence before creation...loved us at our darkest and worked it together for our good to spend eternity with Him.


John 3:16
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

John 15:13
"Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends."

1 John 4:10
"This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins."

Psalm 139:13-14
"For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;        
Wonderful are Your works,        
And my soul knows it very well."
