Philippians 4:12 (KJV)


Sometimes we all need reminding that with Christ living and abiding in our hearts we have access to great spiritual power and strength. The apostle Paul said it best in Philippians 4:12… “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

So as you go about your week, remember that Jesus Christ can give you strength to overcome any challenge or obstacle if you trust in Him.

1 Peter 5:7 (KJV)


Have you ever been asked if you have it all under control?  Talk about pressure.  But when you think about it, no one has it all under control.  However, there is good news! Jesus tells us he will help us with all aspects of our life.  He has it all under control.

There are at least two passages that emphasize this point.

1 Peter 5:7 states, "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."

In Matthew 10:29-31 we read, "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows."

Rest in God today and remember to thank the creator and enjoy his creation today and everyday!

1 Corinthians 15:58


"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”  1 Corinthians 15:58.  As defined by Webster's 1828 dictionary, stedfast is 1. Fast fixed; firm; firmly fixed or established; as the stedfast globe of earth.  2. Constant; firm; resolute; not fickle or wavering.

Paul concludes his first epistle to the Corinthians with this powerful verse of exhortation to be stedfast.  This verse is just as applicable today as it was in Paul’s time.  He knew that our adversary, the devil, will relentlessly use circumstances and people to discourage us and potentially cause us to exit the highway of holiness.  It is our choice to remain stedfast in our devotion to God and in our resolve to retain our salvation, regardless of circumstances and the actions of those around us.

It is encouraging to realize that every one of us can freely choose to be stedfast.  Being stedfast does not require any talent, beauty, popularity, or wealth.  Once we have received salvation, it is our choice to remain faithful to God through all of the ups and downs of life.  We are not forced to be stedfast, but we have access to an anchor (Hebrews 6:19) which will help keep us on the right path.  Stay connected to the anchor.

“We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll,
Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Savior’s love.”
We Have An Anchor
By Priscilla J. Owens (1882)

Luke 18:1 (KJV)


 “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;” - Luke 18:1

The lesson of this parable recorded in Luke 18:1-8 is clearly revealed in the first verse.  We ought to be steadfast in our prayer life.  We should not become discouraged or quit praying if our prayers are not immediately answered.  Unlike the unjust judge mentioned in this parable, our God is a righteous judge and is pleased with our effectual, fervent, and continual prayer.  If the unjust judge was ultimately responsive to this widow’s continual requests, how much more should we trust the righteous judge to be responsive to the continual spiritual requests of His faithful servants?

“As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried : he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.” - 2 Samuel 22:31

“Pray without ceasing.” - 1 Thessalonians 5:17

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” - Philippians 4:6

“But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.” - James 1:6

“For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” - Psalm 84:11

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap , if we faint not.” - Galatians 6:9

Ephesians 6:13 (KJV)


"Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand."  Ephesians 6:13 

As each year broadens our experiences in life, the more I realize that we need every piece of the armour of God.  Our adversary, the devil, will stop at nothing in his attempts to rob us of our salvation and if any part of our spiritual man becomes exposed, he will target it immediately.  Satan is not picky about what or who he uses in his attempts to discourage and defeat us.  Our diligence in maintaining the protection of our spiritual man and making sure that no part is exposed is crucial in our journey through this life toward heaven.

When is the evil day?  It is any day of temptation or severe affliction.

As you read about the various pieces of the armour of God, you will notice that they are all defensive in nature except for one.  The sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God) is the only offensive piece of the armour of God, and it is the only offensive weapon that we need.  As I encounter the expected and unexpected challenges of life, I find that the word of God has the answer for all of them.  In every condition of life, God’s word will guide, nourish, encourage, and strengthen us.  Through this one offensive piece of the armour of God we can secure victory over our adversary and live victoriously every day.  Let’s esteem the word of God more than our necessary food.

Thankfully, God has designed an armour that will protect us from dangers seen and unseen.  It is our job to put it on, keep it on, and use it (every piece).  God would not have created it if we were not going to need it.
