Battling Depression

Anger, Battles, Death, Deliverance, Depression, Family, Healing, Love |

Job 30:16 (NLT)  “And now my life seeps away. Depression haunts my days.” Job was one of the most tormented men in the Bible. He lost his servants, his children, and then his health. Even his marriage suffered because of his unexplained losses and suffering. In chapter 30, Job is almost at his wit’s end in that he sees himself as mocked by others who despise him so much that they even despise his dogs. […]

Love One Another

34 “So now I (Jesus) am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. 35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” John 13:34-35 NLT Emojis have taken over common, everyday conversation. We text and use them to signify emotions instead of saying the words. However, there is one emoji that is taking even the advertising […]

Loving Yourself

Goodness, Healing, Love, Prayer, Purpose, Worship |

“For in Him we live and move and have our being…” Acts 17:28a NKJV Many believers have the mistaken idea that all they are supposed to do is take care of others and deny themselves. It’s as if they live under a heavy spirit of self-sacrifice. You are to take care of others and share with them what you have (Isaiah 58:6-7), for everything you have belongs to God because nowhere in the Bible has […]

God’s Definition of Love

Love, Prayer, Purpose |

4 “Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud   5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NLT In Genesis 1: 27-28, God […]

Healing

Faith, Freedom, Goodness, Healing, Joy, Love, Praise, Purpose, Worship |

Malachi 4:2 “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.” Healing is not some once in a lifetime occurrence, nor is it limited to a select few. It is meant for everyone, especially the believer. In fact, Jesus called it “the children’s bread” (Matthew 15:21-26). However because of His compassion, Jesus did […]

Fruit of the Spirit: Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-Control

Faith, Freedom, Goodness, Healing, Joy, Kindness, Love, Serve, Worship |

The Fruit of the Spirit gives the believer guidelines for his Christian walk. The Fruit guides us in our relationship with God, in our relationship with others, and, finally, in our relationship with ourselves, such as how we conduct ourselves and how we develop character. Faithfulness is a characteristic that is so lacking in today’s society. People don’t care if their “word is not their bond,” and this has created an atmosphere of mistrust and […]

Fruit of the Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace

Christmas, Freedom, Joy, Love, Peace |

The Christmas season usually brings out the best in people. They are nicer, more giving, more tolerant. People are greeting people on the streets as if they have known them for years because during this season there are no strangers. All are united under glow of the seasonal lights and smiles. The music of Christmas and the colors of Christmas permeate an air of love and goodwill. There is nothing like it. Unfortunately, these feelings […]

The Relationship Between Faith and Praise

Faith, Freedom, Love, Praise, Purpose, Salvation, Worship |

Psalm 150:6 encourages the believer by stating “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!”(NKJV). This one mandate resounds in the sanctuaries of millions of churches throughout the world, but what is it? Praise is something that can be done corporately and individually, publicly or privately. Praise is the act or feeling of adoration toward God. You lavish your love and devotion to God and your dedication to His purposes. With your […]

“David therefore besought God for the child; and David fasted, and went in, and lay all night upon the earth…the child died…Then David arose from the earth, and washed, and anointed himself, and changed his apparel, and came into the house of the Lord, and worshipped…” 2 Samuel 12:16, 18a, 20a David did all he could for God to spare his and Bathsheba’s first son, but the child died. After fasting, praying, and lying prostrate […]

“And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and make for thee and for thy son.” 1 Kings 17:13 In the midst of a famine, Elijah asked a widow in the land of Zarephath to make him a little cake to eat. She only had a handful of meal and a small cruse of oil, but […]
