Daily Devotional: Rep The King

Today's Challenge:  Pretend that you can't use words to share the Gospel...how would you spell out or display the Love of God to people.  If you can't get someone to actually open the pages of a Bible you can force them to read it by becoming Living Breathing Epistles that can't be denied...becoming the living proof that God and His Love are real.   Ya Heard!

2 Chronicles 33:1-25
Hezekiah was a god-fearing king who brought about reformation among the Israelites. His son Manasseh, however, was an evil ruler. He had watched his father walk with God and live according to Scripture. Yet he chose to ignore the Lord.
Manasseh worshipped false gods, even to the point of sacrificing his sons by fire in order to praise Molech. He practiced much evil--including witchcraft and sorcery-- and led Israel astray, thereby provoking God to anger. The king, al

All around us we observe a pregnant creation. The difficult times of pain throughout the world are simply birth pangs. But it's not only around us; it's within us. The Spirit of God is arousing us within. We're also feeling the birth pangs. These sterile and barren bodies of ours are yearning for full deliverance. That is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don't see what is enlarging us. But

"There was once a man who had two sons. The younger said to his father, 'Father, I want right now what's coming to me. So the father divided the property between them.
 
It wasn't long before the younger son packed his bags and left for a distant country. There, undisciplined and dissipated, he wasted everything he had. After he had gone through all his money, there was a bad famine all through that country and he began to hurt. He signed on with a citizen there who assigned him to his fiel

Ways to create a positive/inspiring morning routine

Here are some easy ideas you can implement into your morning to have that positive start to the day.  Why not choose 2-3 to start tomorrow?

  1. Get up on time.

The first and most important part of creating a morning routine? Don’t hit that snooze button! Set an alarm for your ideal wake up time, and move your alarm clock or phone across the room if you need to. Once you get out of bed, you’ll be less likely to get back in again.

34 Things A Righteous Woman Does

by Tonja Taylor  

 

 

Although I am sure there are more, here are 34 things the LORD showed me that a Righteous Woman (a righteous bride, a daughter of Yahweh, the King of kings) does:

  1. Refreshes others by sharing the goodness of God with them in the way she lives, what she says, and what she does and doesn’t do, according to His Word 

  2. Reveals the Truth to others--first by living it, then by speaking it or other means, as the LORD leads

  3. Rejects falsehood

  4. Returns to the LORD and helps othe

Daily Devotional: For You....

I challenge you today to begin to follow the example...begin to think of others.  Look for those opportunities where you can help someone else get ahead.  Think of those things that might be just a little bit uncomfortable for you but will have greater reward in the long run...better yet think of Christ and what you can do to continue His work to better Represent Him while you are still here on.

...and that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we'll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.  Be prepared. You're up against far more th

Daily Devotional: Praise Him!

 
 
 
Good people, cheer God! 
Right-living people sound best when praising.
   Use guitars to reinforce your Hallelujahs!
      Play his praise on a grand piano!
   Invent your own new song to him;
      give him a trumpet fanfare.
 
    For God's Word is solid to the core;
      everything he makes is sound inside and out.
   He loves it when everything fits,
      when his world is in plumb-line true.
   Earth is drenched
      in God's affectionate satisfaction.
 
    The skies were made by
