Meditate on His Word Day and Night

by Denise Boggs
 “I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto they ways. I will delight myself in thy statues: I will not forget they word.” Ps 119:15-16 As you are spending time daily with the Lord, be prepared for your repositioning.  Instead of sitting in the seat on planet earth, frustrated about life’s problems, you will be seated with Christ in heavenly places. If you are a child of God it is your rightful place. This seat is where you are to stay seated regardless of all that is going on around you.  This is a seat of perfect peace […]

Have you been offended? How to Deal With Offenses

“Oh, Magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.”   Psalm 34:3 Have you noticed the increase in the opportunities to be offended?  Even after 25 years of marriage to my husband, I sometimes get offended by what he says.  As a wife, I may know he doesn’t mean something the way I took it, but I still feel a huge pull to be offended.

God is the Destiny Developer

“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it”. Proverbs 22:6 (NIV) God has given the wonderful privilege to parents to train up their children in the way they should go. “Train up the child in the way they should go” requires the parent to be observant of the child. They should look at how God has gifted each child, see what their unique characteristics are, and then train them up accordingly. A child is given identity through their parent’s encouragement and affirmation.  An adult who struggles with identity has […]

Who Are You?

by Denise Boggs
You may look to your place of birth and the family you grew up in to find out who you are.  Whether you were born into a rich home, or born into poverty, it doesn’t really matter. Your family background does not define who you are. Your family background is simply the ground in which you were planted. This is why we are referred to as “Oaks of Righteousness” in Isaiah 61. Now, who are you? As a little girl, I would go to visit my grandfather every summer. He lived in a big beautiful home in the mountains, a […]
