Grapes Or Giants

“So they gave a negative report to the Israelites about the land they had scouted.” Numbers 13:12. Whatever looms the largest in your mind is what you think looms on the horizon. Jesus moved forward with His life despite the many obstacles. Heaven awaits your arrival. No forces of evil can deny entry to the land that abounds with love and peace.

When Life Begins

“In the beginning God…” Genesis 1:1. When you think of your life, it doesn’t have to go back to the beginning. You may only need to go back to the day you yielded your life to God. That can be the real beginning for you. Live your life with God in mind. By doing do, life will be all about Him, the way God wanted you to live from the very beginning.

Trust During Trials

“Why do you pursue me as God does? Will you never get enough of my flesh?” Job 19:22.  No matter how much is taken out of you, there are some who will dare take even more. For the moment, all you can do is trust God. That’s the only thing others cannot take away from you. It’s all you have left to give God. No matter what others say or think, stay firm in your commitment to Him. (excerpt from Encouraging Words devotion book at Bookstore Tab

A Move Toward God

“…they are going to turn on you, even people in your own family.” Matthew 10:21. Following God can bring about better days for you, but bitter days for others.  You learn more about the cost the longer you stay on earth. That’s a given if you give God more of your life than you give to some of them. Don’t move away from Him, even if those closest to you move away from you.

Live Sent

“And why did you ever send me?” Exodus 5:22. You know your life is to be lived for God. You know He sent you, but you don’t seem to be going anywhere with His message and His calling. If God called you, then you have also been sent. God knows where you need to go. Don’t try to live where you weren’t called. Live your calling where God called you. Live sent.

The Path To His Promises

“You are faithful to your promises, O, God.” Psalm 71:22. Go back to the promises God made earlier in your life. That is where you wait for God and where He will return. That’s where you can meet Him, even if you feel He has not made good on His promises. There will never be a broken promise by God. He’ll come back to each one and make good on His word. And that’s a promise. (excerpt from Encouraging Words devotion book at Bookstore Tab)

Stress Test

“Do not be far from me because stress is near and there is no one to help.” Psalm 22:11. God made each day and He made you. He knows each day and what it holds for you.

He told you not to worry or be afraid. He doesn’t want you troubled when you face trouble. (excerpt from Encouraging Words devotion book at Bookstore Tab

Nothing Left On The Shelf

“Everything I hope for comes from him.” Psalm 62:5.  Your blessings have been in heaven since the beginning of time. Don’t let them stay there until the end of time. Don’t allow the specific time for a specific blessing to pass. Receive those blessings with today’s release date. Empty the shelf of blessings so there’s nothing left. If you believe He has the best for you, then the best is yet to come. (excerpt from Encouraging Words devotion book at Bookstore Tab)

A Shelter In The Storm
