The weekly devotions on this page are written by our staff, volunteers and those involved in intercessory prayer ministry. We are grateful for their contribution and heart after God.
A new devotion will be posted every Monday.
Think back about the times in your life that you know of when God spared or delivered you out of situations. Thank God for His faithfulness. The Lord has been in your past, He is in your present and He is already in your future. I’m sure once we get to Heaven we will learn about many tragedies that were averted because of the goodness and mercy of our Lord. God’s continues to speak to His people through His still small voice continue.
God always goes before you. If you will look back in your life to things that have happened, you might recall the gentle nudge of the Holy Spirit talking to you. Maybe it was just going down the road and God told you to go the other way. Did you ever have a knowing that you were to speak to someone about God and you just couldn’t do it? Often the fear of what others think or say can hinder us from being bold for the Lord. Czytaj dalej
God can do anything! You know God can do far more than you could ever imagine, guess or request in your wildest dreams! God does it not by pushing us around, but by working within us. His Spirit works deeply and gently in us and speaks through that still small voice within.
One Fall day I was working outside raking leaves. It was the time of the year when snakes come out. You can’t see them with all the leaves on the ground. My three sons were with me. One was barefoot and the other wore boots. My one son wearing boots wanted to play in the back of the yard, ale, I had not raked that area yet.
Powiedziałem, "Dobra, but be careful.” Well, it wasn’t long before he came back screaming that a snake had bit him! Czytaj dalej
Recently I was very inspired by a devotion written by Rick Renner from his book, Sparkling Gems. Below are some excerpts from his teaching as well as my thoughts on this. I pray it will make a difference in your life as it has in mine. Some of the principles may be familiar to you but it is always good to go back to the Word of God. What does God say about what we say?
List do Hebrajczyków 10:23 “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for He is faithful that promised.”
Amplified version ”So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess, and our acknowledgement of it, for He who promised is reliable, sure and faithful to His Word.”
From the time I was a young girl I was deeply moved whenever we would have a missionary speaker at our church. I would find myself at the altar at the end of the service, and would imagine being overseas someday as a missionary. The Lord put this in my heart and through the years it never left.
I received Jesus into my heart when I was in the sixth grade, and I endeavored to serve Him as best I knew how. I was married when I was not quite nineteen and by the time I was 26, I had five children.
The Lord made it very real to me that my children were my main mission field and that when they were grown my husband and I would be going overseas as missionaries. I am so grateful that my husband, Stuart, was a godly husband who loved the Lord and was a real spiritual leader to our family. Stuart received his call to the ministry after being a music teacher in public schools for a number of years. Czytaj dalej
Teraz, remember the question I asked the Lord at the beginning? “Lord, how do you get glory from a woman who killed her two unborn children?” Well, we’re getting closer to the answer, so let’s continue –
A very special man named Gary came into my life! If you could look back to the beginning of our friendship, you would not have believed that our meeting was part of God’s plan.
Initially we were unequally yoked and I really didn’t want to have anything to do with him. I was convinced that Gary was not to be in my life and it wasn’t until God kept dealing with my heart to give him a chance. Czytaj dalej
