Winter

Winter

Winter is known as the coldest season of the year, the weather can become tempestuous, the nights are long and in many agricultural zones the earth seems mostly barren; all this can contribute to loneliness and despair. Winter in human life can express times of distress, loneliness, pain, suffering, lack, or hurt. Perhaps you are […]

Failure Or Success?

Failure Or Success?

Becoming depressed, discouraged, and feeling like a failure, is a tactic Satan uses to render God’s children unfruitful in acquiring and accomplishing all God’s purposes for them. Perhaps Elijah felt this way even after witnessing God’s provision and seeing His power manifested through him. He moves in fear and spends the night in a cave […]

God Has Long-Range Plans

God Has Long-Range Plans

In Jeremiah 29:11 God assures His people that His thoughts (His intentions or His plans) are to “give you a future and a hope”; although they were in captivity at that time the inference was that they should look to Him in hope. Today we live in a world that is dominated by flesh, with […]

His Presence For A New Year

His Presence For A New Year

In 2 Chronicles 15:2 Asa has inherited the throne of Judah, and Azariah is speaking in the power of prophetic voice, “Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you while you are with Him…” This absolute statement applies to every one of us throughout all ages as well, and is […]

Today’s meditation comes with a prophetic word that was given to Rose concerning looking unto, and focusing on, the Lord and His promises.

Faith Or Hope?

Faith Or Hope?

There are eight times in the New Testament epistles that faith and hope are “married” to each other in the same verse.* Both faith and hope are part of the “coat of mail” that all Christians should be wearing. For example, look at 1 Thessalonians 5:8 “…putting on the breastplate of faith…and as a helmet […]

In The Fullness Of Time

In The Fullness Of Time

The phrase “in the process of time” appears five times in the King James Version of the Old Testament translated from a combination of Hebrew words indicating that after a period of time or at a specific time certain things or events took place. While God Himself lives in eternity He deals with us in […]

Master Of The Storms

Master Of The Storms

There are several times in the Gospels where Jesus had encounters with storms at sea. Keep in mind that two of the things symbolized by the sea are life and people; and some of the things symbolized by storms are adversities, opposition, and difficulties. In Matthew 14:22-23 Jesus sent His disciples on a boat trip […]

A Victorious End

A Victorious End

As far as we know The Apostle Paul wrote 2 Timothy from a Roman prison cell that was no more than a dungeon having been arrested for preaching the gospel. At his first court hearing he said “no one stood with me” verse 16, but in the next verse he says “But the Lord stood […]
