The Power of Memorizing God’s Word

Reading and studying the Bible teaches us about the power of God and the love He has for us. However, memorizing His Word lets us quickly wield the sword of that power against the enemy’s lies and attempts to destroy us. Being able to quote God’s Scripture against the enemy calls on God’s army to […]

The Relationship Between Faith and Miracles

When I speak of the “relationship” between faith and miracles, I’m referring to your connection with God and how He works to strengthen your faith through miracles. This connection is profound, intertwining your relationship with God, the depth of your faith, and the miracles you can invite God to manifest in your life. Even in […]

Search the Scriptures

I’ve always believed that the Scriptures were absolute truth—God’s Word—His message. Many of you probably do as well, so why is it we often search for answers to our questions everywhere else first before going to Scripture? We go to our friends, family members, pastors, scholars, and even other books. We wait for frustration to […]

When God Returns

Most believers have heard stories about the end times, but I’m not sure we fully understand the powerful effect this will have on the earth and its people. Take a moment to picture what you think it will be like when Jesus returns to earth to claim His bride. Now, what did your picture look […]

Who Do You Serve?

There comes a point in our walks with God that we must take a good hard look at our behaviors and ask ourselves: Who do we serve? I agree that most of the time, we should be focused on what we SHOULD do and not on what we SHOULDN’T do. In doing this, we don’t […]

Thank God for New Beginnings

It is 2024—the beginning of a new year. I am so grateful that we have a God who is always there to give us hope and encouragement, constantly offering us a fresh new day, month, year, and, most of all, a new life. We are so blessed to have a God that is a God […]

There’s Power in the Name of Jesus

Have you ever wondered why people take our Lord’s name in vain when their emotions get the best of them? It used to make me so angry when I heard nonbelievers yell out “Jesus Christ” when they were frustrated, hurt, or misunderstood. Under my breath, I would apologize to God for their outburst and feel […]

Choose to See God’s Beauty and Feel His Love

I hear it said so much lately that the world is full of hate and anger, as if God has abandoned us to the enemy. Have you ever considered that these thoughts are sent by the enemy to burden our spirits and steal the joy that God gives us every day? While I agree—we live […]

Let There Be Light

From the very beginning, God said in Genesis 1:3-4 NIV, And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. In the New Testament, in Matthew 5:14-16 NIV, God refers to us, saying, You are the light of the world. A town built on […]

Where Is God When You Are Suffering?

One of the most frequently asked questions is why God allows so much suffering. Non-believers often challenge Christians with this question, thinking it is unanswerable. If God is the God of love, where is He when nations are in chaos, innocent babies die, or martyrs give their lives because they refuse to deny their faith? […]
