“Amplified Bible John 16:33 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation, distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.]”


So many places in the Bible speak of peace, this means that if peace is important to us, it is of even more importance to God. But, this perfect peace the Bible speaks of seems only to be

Daily Devotional: Two Disciples

by PamFord Davis  

 

 

Two disciples…

One betrayed the Lord.

“And while He was still speaking, behold, Judas, one of the twelve, with a great multitude with swords and clubs, came from the chief priests and elders of the people.

Now His betrayer had given them a sign, saying, ‘Whomever I kiss, He is the One; seize Him.’  Immediately he went up to Jesus and said, ‘Greetings, Rabbi!’ and kissed Him (Matthew 26:47-49 NKJV.”

Guilt overwhelmed Judas.

“Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had

Waiting is not one of the things humans are used to. No one likes to wait; especially when the results of other people can be seen. Another reason why waiting seems so difficult is because most people do not know what to do during this period. They then begin to feel their life is on hold. In today’s devotional, we will talk on the topic “The other side of waiting; testimony of God’s faithfulness in hard times”


• It’s hard to keep waiting when it seems everyone else is ahead of you. What we fa

As compassionate and as loving as God is, he isn't bound to react to your struggles or your cries. He only reacts to your prayers. Many people feel God is all powerful and can cause anything to happen anytime. Whilst this may be true, it's also not true. God gave man power to have dominion on earth, God isn't sharing that power with him. He gave earth to man. So the only way to involve God in the activities of the earth is through prayer. God is limited to your prayers. So where you struggle,

Psalm 27:14- Wait in the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.

The topic of today, “Why is God asking me to wait?” Waiting is actually one of the things people struggle with the most. Keeping a person waiting usually ends up in making the person annoyed, so when we realize God is telling us to wait, a lot of questions go through our through our hearts and one foremost question, “Why should I wait?”
Sometimes these questions drive us away from G

Unfailing love and truth have met together.
Righteousness and peace have kissed!  
(Psalms 85:10 NLT)

Jesus always moved in lovingkindness and truth.  When you elevate either love or truth above the other, you always distort the character of God.

In July of 1967, the Beatles released the song “All You Need is Love.”

It had a very catchy title and became the rallying cry for the counterculture movement of the 1960s.  Unfortunately, especially for

Through signs we can determine many things. For example, if the clouds are gathering and become darkened, we know that rain might fall. Signs are indications that things will happen. In today’s devotional, we will talk on the topic “Signs your breakthrough is near”.


Everyone wants breakthroughs. Humans are wired to always want more than we have. And this isn’t a bad thing because Jesus Christ has made provision for us. It is the will of God for us to be blessed. If you look through the Bible,

“One expression in Titus 2 deserves special notice. It is the word homemakers. The Greek word is oikourgous, which literally means “workers at home.” Oikos is the Greek word for “home,” and ergon means “work, employment.” It suggests that a married woman’s first duty is to her own family, in her own household. Managing her own home should be her primary employment, her first task, her most important job, and her true career.”

Often times, I have heard this question asked: can your worrying change anything? Can it make the sun go down, or the moon come up at night? The answer is, and will always be, No. We cannot change anything when we worry, but still we worry.. we worry for the future, we worry for our partners, we worry for our kids, we worry for our finances. But never has anything good come from worrying. “NLV Philippians 4:6-7 Do not worry. Learn to pray about everything. Give thanks to God as you ask Him for w

Proverbs 12:4: “A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.”

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, but when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. - James 1:12

 

 Some people say life is hard. I think it's better to say that life can be hard or better still, life is made up of difficulties and challenges. In the words of C.S. lewis hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.

 

Now the biggest problem people have is that they hope for a life without pr

So what in the world is faith? Faith is simply acting like God is telling the truth. It's acting like it is so, even when it's not so, in order that it might be so, simply because God said so. And when we learn to move with our feet in faith based on what God has revealed we can see his power change our circumstances.

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

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? What does godly character for a leader really look like, and another thing that I really like about this book, is that I also think that paul does a really good job of connecting these godly characteristics with the gospel message and really pointing out and showing us th

“It should come as no huge surprise that the secular world is confused and off-base about the identity and calling of women. But what I find distressing is the extent to which (this) has taken hold even within the evangelical world. We see the fruit of that revolution as prominent Christian speakers, authors, and leaders promote an agenda, whether subtly or overtly, that encourages women to define and discover their worth in the workplace, in society, or at church, while minimizing (or even

How many people have you shared the good news of your salvation with? Do you want others to be saved? If receiving Christ as your saviour is wonderful, you will want other people to have Him too as their saviour too. Surely, the joy of salvation, you shouldn't keep to yourself alone. This article encourages you to reach out and win souls for Christ.

What do you expect from the word of God? Your expectation is a function of what you know and understand of God's word. And the word of God delivers to you what you expect from it; for your expectation shall not be cut off. Therefore, increase your expectation of the word of God to increase what it delivers to you.

Practice Non-Random Acts of Kindness
“Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see” (Anonymous).

You have probably seen the bumper sticker that reads, “Practice Random Acts of Kindness.” The point is that acts of kindness will neutralize random acts of violence. Biblically, acts of kindness are not meant to be random, but via the Holy Spirit, they are to be a way of life (Galatians 5:22).

“Kindness” has been defined as “benevolence in action.” It is basic
