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.
It’s been nine months since my husband, Bill, and I heard that still small voice “You are moving. If you do not go, your children will not come.”
“Go where?” I asked the Lord God!
He didn’t let us know for about six weeks where we were going, but just told us to get ready to go. Then one day while watching the Jim Bakker Show, I knew where God was sending us. “You are going to Morningside Ministry in Blue Eye, Missouri.”
“Where?” Continue reading
Recently I hired a new landscaping person to get my yard in shape. Wow! What a mess this past winter made. Debris everywhere, broken twigs scattered all over the lawn, branches hanging too low, piles of leaves and a half-dead tree. Thousands of annoying sweet gum balls everywhere just waiting to trip someone. And what about that fast-growing tree which to my amazement is now touching my neighbor’s roof?
And, Oh, I can’t forget to tell you about all the broken asphalt on my driveway. Daily it seems like new chunks are breaking away from the main part of the driveway. It looks like a bulldozer came in and tore up the driveway. Every night I have to be careful as I get out of the car not to trip on a newly broken section of asphalt. Whew! I keep raking up piles of asphalt but not sure where to dump them since they are an environmental hazard. Continue reading
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. Continue reading
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, but, I had not raked that area yet.
Eu disse, “Okay, but be careful.” Well, it wasn’t long before he came back screaming that a snake had bit him! Continue reading
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?
Hebrews 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.”
