He Will Make a Way

By |Sep 22, 2017|Christ, Devotionals, Guidance, Providence, Spirit|0 Comments

God can make a way through the sea without building a bridge.  He can spread a table in the wilderness without a caterer (Ps 78:19).  He can give water out of a rock and create a stream in your desert.  He can show you a way in a pathless jungle.  Don’t give up.  There is

Stewardship Of Choice

By |Aug 12, 2017|Choices, Christ, Devotionals, Guidance, Love, Prayer, Wisdom|0 Comments

The power of choice is a great gift from our Creator and a trust as surely as a talent is a trust (Matt 25:14-30). Choices are more expansive and comprehensive than we often think. They are more consequential than we can know.  Their ability to impact ourselves, those around us and even the world are

Decision Making

By |Jul 25, 2017|Devotionals, Formation, Guidance, Maturity, Word of God|0 Comments

The Lord does not always give specific guidance when we ask.  Could it be because He is trying to get us to make some decisions based on what we have learned about God through His Word?  Could it be that we cannot develop character without learning to make mature decisions?  When we are forced to

The Spirit’s Touch

Holy Spirit, be the atmosphere in which I move.  Be the aroma that pulls me to the Lily of the Valley.  Be the strength in which I walk.  Empower me for the pursuit of Christlikeness.  Guide me in the holy way.  Touch my eyes so that I will have vision.  Touch my ears, oh Teacher,

Richer Than We Know

The Book teaches, if we will listen!  The Spirit guides, if we will follow.  The Father loves, if we can grasp it.  The Son is interceding for us, if we can appreciate it.  The Bread of Heaven and the Water of Life sustains us.  The Light of the World enables us to see.  The peace

Orientation

By |May 8, 2017|Christ, Devotionals, Guidance, Righteousness, Spirit|0 Comments

The NT word translated “dayspring” is most often translated “east”.  In the ancient world everything was oriented toward the east.  The rising of the sun reaffirmed it every day.  Even Christian graves are oriented toward the east.  The English word “orient” comes from Latin which means “east”.  Jesus is our Dayspring and Sun of Righteousness

Old Roads

By |Feb 19, 2017|Devotionals, Growth, Guidance, Spirit, Trust|0 Comments

We like the old roads.  The ones with which we are most comfortable.  The ones with familiar and heartwarming sights.  Yet, we are often called to travel a new road when the old one will not get us where we must go.  Our Guide delights in preparing us for new roads and doing new things.

God’s Surprises

Joseph had a hard decision to make.  His betrothed was expecting, and he was not the father.  He chose a quiet divorce, because he was a compassionate man.  “But just when he had resolved to do this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him” (Matt 1:20).  When we make a careful decision, even in

The Holy Spirit As Teacher (2)

By |Oct 10, 2016|Christ, Devotionals, Guidance, Humility, Pride, Spirit, Truth|0 Comments

It is not safe to be left in the world without the Teacher.  It is just as treacherous to teach presumptively based on our own thinking.  The Holy Spirit can give us a clear revelation of Jesus if we will let Him lift the cultural fog from our eyes to see Messiah more clearly.  This

A Flashlight For The Dark

By |Aug 2, 2016|Devotionals, God's Word, Guidance, Light, Word of God|0 Comments

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a flashlight to my path” Psalm 119:105 (Paraphrase).  There is something about walking in the dark and not being able to see where you are going that is very frightening.  Walking in the dark is fraught with danger.  God knows that!  So, in love, He has
