bible study (389)

The Bible admonishes us as Believers to trust in the Lord. Do you know why? Because even God knows that it is hard to trust without knowledge, information or physical evidence. However, true faith is tested when you do not understand the full scope of things, but choose to believe that someone has your best interest at heart. Trust is a choice. One that is made actively and not passively. The same way a man would accept to be joined to a woman forever, knowing full well that this woman can chang

If we're being honest, we would realize that many things are fighting for our attention. In life, we have relationships to manage Financial burdens, to settle businesses, to work on career goals, to meet and other things that draw our attention. Unfortunately, many of us put God in the last place on our list of preferences. We don't spend enough time with God.  We try to use God to satisfy our other needs, but this isn't meant to be, while those other needs are valid and need our attention, God

Today's topic is relatable and applies to so many youths at this age. Let me share the story of one of my closest female friends. For this illustration, I'll call her CL. So CL is a vibrant young lady who passionately loves God. She sought to please him and live in his love for her. She had a male best friend, who also loved God extremely. CL, and her best friend would challenge themselves, go on evangelism, win souls and get them saved and disciplined. They did so many great things togeth

An interesting quote by Avijeet says,

Never stop when you are tired. Stop when you are done, winners are not those who always win, they are the ones who always fight.

You must realize that the devil is not fighting you because you are weak. He is fighting you because you are strong. The devil is clever and knows better than to waste his efforts on nothing. So when the devil throws darts at you, it is because you have something on your inside that he needs. You have something on your inside that

It is difficult to understand that pain has a purpose when you are the one suffering it. It is very easy to say it to someone else, but admitting it to yourself might be quite challenging. Despite this, the truth is that your pain has a purpose. The truth is, God is aware of the pain you are passing through. He is aware of the difficulties you are faced with and while he does not enjoy seeing you in pain, he is working out. Even the pain for your good, in fact, some of those circumstances only o

In our world today, everyone uses the word love, even when they don’t understand what love is. For example, we see two women having sexual relations with one another, some going to the extent of even getting married under the name of love. That isn’t love; it is an abuse or misrepresentation of love. A man bruises and batters your face on a regular basis and you say he loves you, he just has a problem expressing his emotions. The further away we are from God, the easier it

God, loves and takes care of his children. He always has good plans for us. Jeremiah 29. Verse 11 says...

 For I know the plans that I [a]have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for [b]prosperity and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

God also knows that we live in a world where we can become easily distracted by things and even other people. He created us to be relational beings. This is why we are always around people and can't live purposely in isolation. Because of this, he

            In spite of what or who you may think of when you hear the word “father,” and in spite of the fact that a father is biologically required for the birth of a child, according to the Bible, a father is a God-ordained office in a family situation and in the life of a child.  Regardless of our modern acceptance of sinful practices (and no more comment is required for this article), the Biblical definition of a family is a father, a mother and the

God is a god of preparation. He prepares for everything, because preparation is very important. Everything a person does in life without adequate preparation has a high likelihood of not being a success. It is in this way, god prepares you. He prepares you to do great work for the kingdom of heaven.

 

He prepares you, so you can be the best version of yourself and it does not matter how long it will take you. As long as God is the one preparing you, then you have nothing to worry about, because

Are you walking your way to physical fitness on a treadmill?

Maybe you’re pedaling off pounds on a stationary bike.

Exercise requires determination and diligence.

I want to be spiritually fit; don’t you?

I’ve remembered an acrostic once shared by Beverly Chesser (on her Beverly Exercise TV program).

Frequency

Intensity

Time

Beverly stressed the important of frequency (consistency) in any exercise goal and routine. If it’s hit an

A lot of times, people wonder why they go through certain things and why it seems the others simply have it very easy. They blame God, not realizing what God is trying to do for them. So in today's devotional we will be talking on the topic that says: sometimes God breaks you to save a soul. I pray that the eyes of your understanding become enlightened as you open your ears to listen to what he has to say to you in this post. A lot of people won't believe this, but here's the truth, some of the

When Starting a New Challenge it is important that you have a strategy and motivation.

A rock climber cannot just start climbing the side of a mountain without first examining the terrain. They must find the best route to the top, which way will be the safest? As we start a new challenge we must determine what our Goals are and what will keep us going when we get tired? A rock climber cannot decide what to do after they get tired. You cannot decide what to do after you

Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.New and better things come into being when we modify--alter or change something--even slightly. Life is change, so you can use the wisdom and creativity of God in you to change things, from recipes on! --Isaiah 43:19, AMPC

Think about it…

You won’t need a thing!

If you watch TV, you’ve seen commercials.  I’d guess that (like me) you’ve been enticed to buy their products and thought ‘I need that.’

Maybe you did; maybe not.

Capitalism is not evil; it helps us fill basic needs.

All of our needs are temporary. The adage is true; you really can’t take it with you.

It’s foolish to try. The LORD is preparing everything for the saved.

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, belie

Do you believe that your blessings are hidden in plain sight? Or you belong to the school of thought that says your blessings are a must from hidden and mysterious places?
.
For something to be in plain sight, it typically means to be somewhere where it can easily be seen. So how are your blessings hidden in plain sight?
Sometimes, This can simply mean that there is a major change about to happen. God is about to do some major thing in your life that you might have been asking for, for a lo

So this devotion was birthed out of honesty. This past week, for me, I found myself in a mental space. That was just I don't know how else to put it but overloaded. Okay, so just with everything going on, everything being exposed, I was doing a ton of research, all good things to be researched. You know, doing your research, being informed, asking questions. All of those things are amazing. However, I felt like I had pieces of my mind and this topic and this topic and this one and this
