The Trap of Flattery

I guess we wouldn’t be human if we didn’t like to hear people say good things about us, how good we do a job, how good we look or how great we are. Such remarks make us feel good about our selves but they also open us up to being ensnared by allowing us to […]

The Great Paralyzer

Fear has a paralyzing effect upon most individuals, especially fear of man and what he may or may not say. Why is that such a big deal to us? Maybe, because we do not have confidence in who we are and whose we are! David provided us with real food for thought. “The Lord is […]

Knowing the Password is Not Enough

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and […]

Effective Personal Management

“He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.” Proverbs 10:4. Here we are admonished as to how to conduct our lives, our business, our children and our finances. The word ‘slack’ here in the Hebrew also means idle, dull or slothful. In other words, Solomon was […]

Life Food

Matthew 3 establishes the role of John the Baptist up to his baptising of Jesus. After that Jesus went into the wilderness where he fasted for forty days and was to be tempted by the devil. When he finished the 40 day fast, the devil arrived to begin to tempt Jesus. Then Jesus spoke for […]

Our Mouth Establishes Our World

“Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.” Psalm 141:3. David understood how what he said could create his heaven or his hell. He recognized that we can allow our enemy to use those words against us at a later date. Ephesians 4:27 states “Neither give place to the […]

Keep your eyes on the prize

“Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.” Proverbs 4:25-27. (KJV) We are admonished here to keep our eyes looking straight […]

Help in time of trouble

Many Christians believe that when they are in trouble they can just call on God and he will bail them out. That is a true statement, if that individual has met the conditions that will allow God to bail them out. God is a covenant God. He makes certain commitments to us which are not […]

double minded = zero stability

‘If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that […]

Restrained Anger

“Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools” Ecclesiastes 7:9 (KJV) Anger is not easily controlled. It is an exceptional individual who can control his anger. Anger is a raging fire that can burn out of control and cause much sorrow. How many things have been […]
