It’s Time That We Acknowledge God First

by Denise Boggs
“Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor my eyes lofty; neither do I exercise myself in matters too great or in things too wonderful for me” (Psalm 131:1) If we allow it, pride can get the best of us.  It can steer us into areas where we believe we’ll benefit the most, and lead us away from the more practical areas. It can puff us up into believing we are the best, we are in control, and we don’t need anyone else.  Pride can lead us to the top and assure us that we are right where we need to […]

In Troubled Times, He Sends Help!

by Denise Boggs
May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob set you up on high and defend you. Send you help from the sanctuary and support, refresh and strengthen you from Zion.   Psalm 20:1-2 There are times that we need supernatural support and strength to make it through the challenge of the day.  When we call on the Lord He will dispatch help from His throne.  In Psalm 20:2 we read, He sends help from the sanctuary. He will send help, angelic assistance. Scripture tells us that the angels of the […]

Joy Comes in the Morning

by Denise Boggs
“Weeping may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:5 In Psalm 6:6-8 the psalmist says, “I am weary with my groaning.” Some people weep outwardly, but most weep silently, choosing to walk through dark valleys all alone. Silent weeping will cause a night of sorrow to turn into months or even years of sadness, like a dark, sleepless night that you think will never end.  But just as the morning sun comes up to announce that the night is over, and a new day has begun.  When the first feeling of joy returns to your […]

WHO DO I TRUST

by Denise Boggs
“O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me.” Psalm 7:1 We can trust in God because He is always faithful. We trust Him because we trust what He says in His Word. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Proverbs 3:5 God’s track record has been recorded and He has been faithful to do what He says He will do all through the ages.  He has always come through.  When we trust others based on their track record […]

Acknowledging God

in God
“Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor my eyes lofty; neither do I exercise myself in matters too great or in things too wonderful for me” (Psalm 131:1) We should always acknowledge God first in our lives. If we allow it, pride can get the best of us.  It can steer us into areas where we believe we’ll benefit the most, and lead us away from the more practical areas.  It can puff us up into believing we are the best, we are in control, and we don’t need anyone else.  Pride can lead us to the top and assure […]
