Light arises in the darkness for the upright... - Psalm 112:4

“Light be!” was God’s first creative command (Genesis 1:3). In that instance, the switch was turned on, and the darkness displaced. Since that moment, the darkness has never been able to overwhelm the light (John 1:5). The “upright”--those depending on Christ’s goodness as their own--will journey through dark passages, seasons of trial and tribulation. But they will ...

Luke 22:31-32

“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you,that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”

The power of God is brought to bear in a person’s life when someone prays for them!

It’s easy to focus on the first part of this verse and get all caught up in the idea of God giving Satan permissi...

All-Weather Blessings

These are tough economic times all around. The same rules and assumptions that used to be part of the wall paint of life don't seem to apply any more. Housing values don't just automatically go up. The next stop on the Dow Jones index may not be a thousand more, perhaps a thousand less. Dividends that used to pay like clockwork may now be calculated at pennies on the share, if at all.

So when we open our Bibles and read, "Blessed is...

How's Your Faith?

By Skip Heitzig

Abraham is known as the father of our faith. But did you know that he didn't start out with great faith?

Abraham's story really begins in Genesis 11, where we read that a man named Terah from Ur of the Chaldeans had three sons: Abram (who we know as Abraham), Nahor, and Haran. Terah, the text tells us, took his family and "went out with them from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan; and they came to Har...

Psalm 46:10

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations,I will be exalted in the earth!”

Give God some still time!

If this is going to happen, you are going to have to allocate time for it. You will not naturally just find yourself giving time to meditation on the things of God. But once you begin, you will find it to be one of the most important activities in your life.

The tr...

And the work of righteousness will be peace, and the service of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever. - >Isaiah 32:17

You can’t buy a truly good sleep; it’s God’s gift. You can take pills and potions to knock you out, but that’s not a good sleep. The best of sleeps comes after you’ve worked hard, accomplished a mission, relished the success, and then plunged into a warm bed. Many people labor all day and toss all night....

Psalm 63:1-8

“O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you;my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. So, I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.So, I will bless you as long as I live; in your name, I will lift up my hands. My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will prai...
