Psalms 18: 1-2 (KJV)


Where do you turn to in times of trouble or distress in your life? Is it your spouse, or maybe a fiancée or even a close friend? Is it your parents or grandparents? All are capable of giving you good advice on how to handle or deal with your particular situation. They may have experienced something similar and can share how the Lord led them through. Even with this good advice, it may not be the direction that the Lord would have you go in. We should always look to God for the different seasons in our lives! Read our Bibles, have an active prayer life and go to church. It is in these actions that God reveals his direction for our lives.

Psalms 18:1-2 states, "
I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.  The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower."

Psalm 34: 9-10 (KJV)


“O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.” - Psalm 34:9-10

The children of Israel, recently escaped from the clutches of their slaveholders in Egypt, had made it all the way to the banks of the Jordan River. There they waited forty days for the spies to return to tell about the land God had promised them. They washed their clothes in the river while their children swam and played. But they didn’t cross the river into the land that had been promised them for generations; just a few days later they turned around and marched the other direction. Why? Because they feared the walled cities and mighty armies in the land more than they trusted in God, and their minds and hearts turned back to the “security” of Egypt (Numbers chapters 13 and 14). God was “grieved with this generation.” (Psalm 95:10)

Some may read this story and marvel at how ridiculous these people were for not trusting God after all He had done for them, but do we trust God when the road ahead looks hard, even terrifying? Do we fear when we face uncertainty in our job and finances? Has your mind or heart turned back to the things you laid down at the altar? Let’s not be found speaking of faith in Jesus, and living just as faithless as the citizens of the world around us! Surrender your fears and temptations to God, and find your refuge and strength in Him! Through prayer, through study of His Word, and through consecration (laying down our will in exchange for His), you will find the courage you need to press forward in holiness with confidence.

Take heart friends, the Lord is our shepherd! We shall not want! He will lead us in good paths, He will provide all we need. It is up to us to follow Him in everything we do, to simply trust that He will provide. There is freedom and power in surrendering our feeling of need to provide for our own future, and to place all in Jesus’s hands.

“Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him, how I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er. Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus, oh for grace to trust Him more.” - Louisa M. R. Stead

Phillipians 4:9 (KJV)


As I come back from the rich worship services we had in Greensboro the other weekend, the foremost thought that the Lord has given me is “The Lord will provide”.  Whatever I need, He already knows, before I even ask!  He knows what I need physically and spiritually to go through my day.  Hasn’t He proven himself faithful so far?!

The song we sing says “In some way or other, the lord will provide”. It may not be in the way we think or in our time, but it is in His time and His wisdom.

In Phillipians 4:9 we read, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."

Thankful for the wisdom and providence of my God!

Luke 9: 57-60 (KJV)


"And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.  Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God."  Luke 9: 57-60

Luke does not identify the men who passionately wanted to follow Jesus.  Were they impressed with Jesus’ teachings and miracles, the fellowship among the Disciples, or maybe they thought this was the latest craze and wanted to join in?  Whatever the reason, these men got a reality check. Jesus did not ask them to follow Him in the literal sense, but to “go and preach the Gospel” and to not return to their former way of life.  To be a disciple of Jesus, it is not about following, but all about doing, without looking back.

Your Testimony


Mark 5:19 states "...Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee."

These are final words from Jesus to a man whom he had recently healed. Jesus simply commanded the man to tell others about what the Lord had done for him. People today will dispute Theology and Doctrines, but can’t in any way discredit your personal testimony. So the challenge for all of us is to tell someone about the compassions of Christ and the great things he has done for you!

Your testimony could make all the difference in someone’s life!
