Cleanse Your Spirit With the Word of God

” The words of the LORD are pure words, like silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”  Psalm 12:6 “You have to drink plenty of water,” my mom would say to me whenever I was sick as a child.  Drinking fluids helps flush out the harmful bacteria in your body that causes you to be ill. Guilt, shame, and condemnation are like harmful bacteria in your spirit.  Unless they are flushed out by the Word of God, these things will reside within you and cause spiritual damage.  They can hinder your personal relationship with the Lord. The very […]

Guaranteed to Change Your Life

Twenty or so years ago I was introduced to a prayer that was guaranteed to change your life and your marriage. WOW! Did I ever need a guarantee like that. I immediately began to pray this prayer for my husband and me.  Our life was such a mess at that time, like a cluttered closet.  I didn’t know where to start and he wasn’t interested at all in cleaning closets. I had heard the old saying that prayer changes things, so I began to pray and trust God to clean out our cluttered closets. Today, 20 years later, as I […]

It is Time to Receive the Truth

Do not believe the lies that the enemy throws at you. Trust God, for his word is True! “Receive and welcome the Word, which implanted and rooted [in your hearts], contains the power to save your soul.” James 1:21 Amp One morning, I overslept.  The sun was already out, shining brightly through the window.  I ran to the garden, and as I ran down the sidewalk I saw that the dew was gone.  I had missed meeting with God.   I immediately had an old thought, a lie I had believed for years. The lie was: “If I mess up, God […]

What Are Your Thoughts About Yourself?

“How precious also are thy thoughts unto me O God? How great is the sum total of them! If I should count them they are more in number than the sand; when I awake I am still with thee.” (Psalm 139: 17) Where are your thoughts about yourself coming from? Are you listening to others’ comments or are you listening to the Lord? Are you measuring your worth by a worldly standard you see on TV or are you using God’s Word as the standard? If you can believe that God carefully and lovingly molded you in the womb and […]

This Is The Way, Walk Ye In It

Unto you do I cry, O Lord my rock, be not deaf and silent to me… Psalm 28:1 The Lord is not silent; He breaks the silence by saying, “this is the way; walk ye in it.” Whether you turn to the right or the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, “This is the way; walk ye in it” Isaiah 30:21 When we have decisions to make and doubts are flooding our soul, and others suggest courses of action that are conflicting; when caution dictates one approach but faith the other, it is the time to […]
