Invaluable Valentine

So, it’s almost Valentine’s Day and most of you who know me know that I’m not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day. It’s typically just another day. But this one is going to be different. I’ve found it. The love that I’ve always longed for. A love that is unconditional. Someone that encourages me and never…

The God Who Stirs the Sea and Liberates the Captive

“Will you remain in constant dread of human oppressors? Will you continue to fear the anger of your enemies? Where is their fury and anger now? It is gone! Soon all you captives will be released! Imprisonment, starvation, and death will not be your fate! For I am the Lord your God, who stirs up the sea, causing its waves to roar. My name is…

Your Heavenly Father Pursuing You

“Light shines in the darkness for the godly. They are generous, compassionate, and righteous… They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them. They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.” -Psalm 112:4; 7-8 “It’s not about the magnitude of the darkness around you. It’s about…

He is the Key to Break Every Chain

There are people held captive by chains of addiction, the chains of hopelessness. In our hands, we hold the key to loosen their chains and set them free. We were once slaves but we have been set free by the blood of Jesus. There is power in His Name to break every chain. Nothing is…

A Strong Right Hand Holding Yours

“The Lord is my light and my salvation-whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life-of whom shall I be afraid?” -Psalm 27:1 A stronghold is “a place that has been fortified (made strong) so as to protect it against attack. “The Lord is my light”- He casts out the darkness and…

Never Forget Your Name, He Hasn’t

“See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands.” -Isaiah 49:16 Our names are written the palms of his hands- the nail-scarred hands that were wounded for us. Our name is what others call us, how we are identified. If our names are written on the hands of Christ, when the nails…

The Hope of Heartbreak

“Why shouldn’t we experience heartbreak? Through those doorways God is opening up ways of fellowship with His Son… He comes with the grip of the pierced hand of His Son, as if to say, ‘enter into fellowship with Me; arise and shine.’ If God can accomplish His purposes in this world through a broken heart,…

A Protective Father, Fighting for Us

It is only through Christ that hopeless situations can completely shift. I love the notifications from the Sprinkle of Jesus app and the way that God uses those words of encouragement to speak to me. For example, “Opposition is an opportunity for God to perform a miracle.” I have to meet with my boss today…

No Limit to His Faithful Love

“And because I preach this Good News, I am suffering and have been chained like a criminal. But the Word of God cannot be chained.” -2 Timothy 2:9 “If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is.” -2 Timothy 2:13 “The Word of God cannot be chained (restrained.)” Restrain means…

Fire Inside= Fire Outside

Tongues of fire. What does that mean? It sounds kind of dangerous. For the enemy, it is. I read a commentary that put it this way: “Tongues symbolize speech and the communication of the Good News. Fire symbolizes God’s purifying presence, which burns away the undesirable elements of our lives and set our hearts aflame…

From Rebel to [Re]surrected [Bel]iever

“He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet he never said a word.” When others say things about us that are not true, lashing out at them is not the answer. We must solely rely on the option of the One who sees all and place our value in how He sees us. “He was led like…

Go: A Command. A Mission. A Calling.

“True leadership only comes with an understanding of the Son of Man and His mission and vision because in our quest to understand him, he reveals to us the inner workings of our own hearts.” -Ravi Zacharias Jesus perfectly practiced what true leadership should look like. As a leader, you have to realize that it…
