There are many Scriptures that teach believers to fear God, but not man. This includes all areas of our earthly existence: illness, relationship problems, financial troubles, emotional issues and every kind of pain and, perhaps most of all, death.


Fears of illness, death, and so many other sorts of disaster have never been as accentuated as they are today and this is a highly unfortunate condition, because when we abide in the fear of man, it makes us weaker and greatly increas

The timing of God's preparation for us is often not one that we could have imagined. So that also means that we could not have dreamt of the things that God has planned for us. Someone may probably ask why? Is it worth the wait? What god is preparing you for is worth the wait.

 

Waiting is an essential part of being a christian even before the people of God were known as christians. That was a major feature of our spiritual journey waiting for God to give a sign. We're waiting for God to move, w

It wasn’t the first time Grandma Ford’s cooking came to mind. These thoughts are fresh so I’m compelled to rekindle memories. I thought of her yesterday while fixing my breakfast. Unlike most mornings, I wanted a big breakfast of eggs, grits, bacon and toast.

My husband Norm likes his eggs scrambled well or in vegetable omelets. He never has his eggs fried. On the other hand; I prefer fried, scrambled or French toast. I don’t buy bacon often; so adding it to breakfast yes

The pandemic has given us a heightened appreciation for first responders. We’ve repeatedly heard stories about the work of those serving on the front line. God is calling His people to prayer. Are you a first responder?

Do we think of prayer as the last resort or our first response?

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and wil

“Have you positioned pearls in your crown – pearls of patience, peace, perseverance and prayer for your husband? Oh don’t forget the rubies, the rarest of all gems. Is your crown radiating with rubies of reverence and respect for your husband?”

– NANCY CAMPBELL

Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary on Proverbs 12:4: “Those who have grace, will delight in the instructions given them. …A wife who is pious, prudent, and looks well to the ways of her household, who makes conscience of her duty,

You know if we go back to Acts Chapter 16: here's where we see you know Paul takes Timothy under his wing in Acts. Chapter 16,

 

And then later in Acts, Chapter 16, we're going to see Paul and Silas are actually going to go to jail, so paul and silas were wrongfully accused. They were there preaching the word to Roman citizens. Gentiles were giving their hearts to the Lord. They were Receiving Christ as their Lord and savior, and because of this they were giving up all these false idols. So the

Busy, busy, busy!

Sometimes we might feel like we’re circus stars doing a balancing act.

Do you have the balance, flexibility and strength needed to keep from falling?

Maybe you’ve seen gymnasts on balance beams or parallel bars.

Easy does it (but it’s far from easy).

I speak from personal experience.

I was using the parallel bars in gym class. Never the athlete, I sprained my back. If graded on balance, I failed miserably. To make things worse, the accident happened

“What does the crown look like with which you adorn your husband? Does it look tarnished and strange because many jewels are missing? Or is it filled with precious gems? What are some of the gems that will make your husband proud to wear you as his crown? Is your crown decorated with diamonds of devotion, dedication, dignity and diligence that will delight his soul? Have you set in sapphires that will shine and sparkle with a serving, sacrificial and submissive spirit? Are you sweet to him? Are

One of the things that really excites me about 1 Timithy in the Bible
is that Paul is writing a letter to Timothy and, in this letter, he's really given some instructions of what does it look like to have godly character right?

Daily Devotional: NEVER FEAR

by Dudley Anderson  


Psalm 56:3
But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in You.

One summer night during a severe thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small son into bed. She was about to turn the light off when he asked in a trembling voice, "Mommy, will you please sleep in my room with me all night?" Smiling, the mother gave him a warm hug and said, "I can't dear. I have to sleep in Daddy's room." After a long silence, a shaky little voice said, "The big sissy!"

Fears and phobias are some
