Things God Knows

Things God Knows Sometimes it’s intriguing to contemplate the greatness and splendor God. To meditate on the extent of His knowledge, which in truth no human can totally comprehend. Isaiah 55:9 says, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” But […]

Prayers for Salvation For Others

I like to take time in the morning to read the Word and spend time with the Lord. Then I pray for friends and family. Sometimes, I’m not sure if they are following the Lord, so I reinforce my prayer with 1 Timothy 2:4. “The Lord wants all people to be saved and to come […]

Where Will You Spend Eternity

What’s Next After This? Have you ever asked someone this question: if you die tonight, where will you spend eternity? Generally, I get one of two answers. I’m a good person. I’ll go to Heaven. Or I hope I’ll go to Heaven. These two answers frustrate me because neither reflect God’s word. Let’s take a […]

What Were You Thinking?

What Were You Thinking? James 4:7 says “Submit yourselves therefore to God.” Our choices, our words, our activities, our relationships. (I’m still working on all of this.) But for me thoughts are the hardest to surrender to the Lord. The Bible offers help. Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is […]

Trusting in God Despite Our Circumstances

Trusting in God Despite the Circumstances Habakkuk 3:17-19 is one of my favorite scriptures. The verses depict the prophet’s faith in the Lord despite his material circumstances. I think it would be interesting to put this into modern day language. Here’s the original. Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes […]

Reflecting God’s Glory

Reflecting God’s Glory Once when we were traveling in our RV, the window out the back faced east, and I saw a brilliant sunrise every morning. But one day I happened to look out the other side toward the west just at the right time. A glorious gold light reflected from the windows of the […]

Why Should I Pray

Why Should I Pray? Keep on praying and don’t give up. Colossians 4: 2 says “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” 1 Thessalonians 5: 17 reminds us to “pray without ceasing.” Ephesians 6: 18 says “And pray in the Spirit on a ll occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.” Prayer is […]

Scripture Comes Alive: A Devotional Within a Devotion

I love the Bible app on my phone because there is an abundance of devotionals available. https://www.bible.com/ For example, some of the devotionals can be found under categories such as peace, joy, love, anxiety, healing, anger, hope, depression, and on and on. I chose the topic joy and have learned so much. With the wealth […]

Heavenly Perspective – Hope for the New Year

It’s so easy to get bogged down by daily concerns and I dare say … worry. I’ve got bills to pay, and I don’t want to admit I’m now living in an aging body. Sometimes I have to go to God’s word and get a better perspective. I couldn’t say this any better than Paul. […]

Salvation Through Faith

Salvation Through Faith In my book, What God Knew, Tammy asks Michael the difference between God and religion. Michael answers by saying that God is the Almighty Creator, Maker of the universe and mankind. Religion is man’s feeble efforts at reaching God, trying to be good enough. But there’s nothing man can do to reach […]

God Has All the Answers

God Has All the Answers I love the Bible because I can find rich treasures in the form of answers I need for just about every issue in my life. One of them is how to deal with difficult people. Sometimes certain individuals seem to toss stumbling blocks my way at every turn, testing every […]
