Are you living in the little house or the Big House?

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-7 The little house is the house you grew up in, but it didn’t seem little until you began to grow up. Your […]

Jesus is Watching

“He shall see [the fruit] travail of His soul and be satisfied…” (Isaiah 53:11) Amp.   Isaiah 53:11 says that Jesus will watch and see the travail of His soul and be satisfied as He justifies many and makes them righteous.  Can you appreciate what He did for you and receive His sacrifice and the travail of His soul?  Can you receive your redemption as a gift with a grateful heart?    He was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities.  His outward wounding was for our obvious transgressions or sins, the things we do, stepping over the […]

Discouraged and Defeated?

My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death assail me.  Fear and trembling have beset me; horror has overwhelmed me.  I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.  I would flee far away and stay in the desert; Selah.   I would hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm.” Psalm 55:4-8 Discouragement is a real problem.  Discouraged people would rather sleep then face one more discouragement.  Why would a person get so discouraged that they would choose to just lie down and […]

The Path of Life

“Show me the path of life…” Psalm 16:11 God knows exactly what is going on in your world. He has provided everything you need to live during these times; and actually He has provided a way for you to live in peace even during times of trouble.   Find the path of life, the peace of God. Once you find the path of life, stay there, don’t let your heart be troubled.  Stop allowing yourself stray off the path, lost and fearful.  You have a choice; you simple stay on the path.  You have a choice daily;  so don’t allow your […]

Holding On to Hope

“We who have fled to Him for refuge might have mighty indwelling strength and strong encouragement to grasp and hold fast the hope that has been appointed for us” (Hebrew 6:18). What are you hoping for? A new job, a husband, a wife, or healing of a loved one?  Whatever you are hoping for let me encourage you to tighten your grip.  It is time to securely grab hold of whatever the Lord has promised you, don’t let it slip out of your hands and don’t give in to even the slightest disappointment.  Spend time with the Lord and this […]
