Hello to all my wonderful friends out there in the blogging world. I would ask that you pray for me for I am having a time trying to stay awake during the day, especially when I sit down to write my daily devotions. I feel this is an attack from the enemy, but God has … Continue reading Prayer Request
“Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no money come, buy and eat. Come, buy wine and milk Without money and without cost. “Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is … Continue reading Free Gift
Donna, on “Meeting Jesus,” shares with us the history of the physical nation of Israel, and of their times of spiritual decline, but of God’s grace to them, too, when they repented of their sins and turned back to him.
And, then she relates that to us today, and how we need to take these lessons from Israel’s history to heart. The quote she said that stood out to me the most was this one:
“Don’t expect the devil to leave you if you play in his yard.”

“Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table and of the table of devils.” 1Cor. 10:21.
The combined books of Kings and Chronicles tell a tale of the politically united, powerful and prosperous nation of Israel, albeit the description is foretold in Deuteronomy…
“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth…
And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee…

To those of us who are strangers on this earth, whose citizenship is in heaven through faith in Jesus Christ, who were chosen by God before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless before him, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit in our hearts, to obedience to Jesus Christ: May grace … Continue reading Cause for Much Praise!
Proverbs 29:1-3 NASB A man who hardens his neck after much reproof Will suddenly be broken beyond remedy. When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, But when a wicked man rules, people groan. A man who loves wisdom makes his father glad, But he who keeps company with harlots wastes his wealth. The Stiff-Necked There … Continue reading We Are an Offense
Can you imagine with me what it would be like to physically be in Jesus’ presence, and to be able to sit down with him on a mountain, and to listen to him teach us his truths? Think with me for a moment what it would be like to gaze up at his face and … Continue reading His Benefits Bestowed
This is such a timely message. Beehopper, inspired by the Holy Spirit, I believe, shared from her heart about the subject of adversity and of our need to remain steadfast in faith, for troubled times are fast approaching.
Someone once asked me if I followed the first commandment before I followed the second commandment.
“It is the greatest commandment and the only one to live by,” she reminded me. “People sometimes think that the second one is the greatest and skip the first. But the second cannot be completed without the first.”
Then she quoted Mark 12:30:
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
Matthew 22:38 continues to say, “This is the first and the greatest commandment.” (NIV)
That word of wisdom stayed on my mind. I thought about it quit a lot. It boils down to loving the Lord with ALL that I am and in EVERY situation.
Wow, that is intense! It makes sense that it should be the first commandment. How can a person fulfill the second commandment, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” if they cannot understand the first. It is…
