Our Heavenly Father

Our Heavenly Father

Every birth requires the involvement of a father; the new birth also requires the involvement of a heavenly Father! 1 Peter 1:3 says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from […]

Beatitudes (Part 3)

Beatitudes (Part 3)

As we continue our fast paced journey through the beatitudes we hear Jesus saying, “Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons (children KJV) of God” Matthew 5:9. Being a peacemaker is imitating our Father, Ephesians 2:14. I believe this takes on two different aspects; one is peace between ourselves, peace among men […]

Beatitudes (Part Two)

Beatitudes (Part Two)

Today we will look briefly at three more of the keys Jesus gave us in Matthew 5:1-12 to unlock and give us access into the blissful state of blessings that await those who enter through these gates. The fourth key is to hunger and thirst for righteousness, the righteousness of God. What happens when you […]

Beatitudes (Part One)

Beatitudes (Part One)

The next three meditations based on Matthew 5:1-12 highlight the nine “blesseds” we know as the Beatitudes. The Greek word translated blessed is “Makarios” and means “supremely blest” The Amplified Bible endeavoring to give us better understanding uses numerous words to describe it which include, happy, blithesome, joyous, enviably fortunate, and others.

Qualities Of Motherhood

Qualities Of Motherhood

The Bible says, “Who can find a virtuous woman? … Her children arise up, and call her blessed (Proverbs 31:10, 28 KJV). True God-ordained Motherhood is not accomplished just through the act of bringing a child into the world; it only begins at that moment! Neither is it determined by the amount of material things […]

A Fragrant Garden

A Fragrant Garden

A garden is a place of beauty, and productivity. God has a garden with two aspects; the first is that into which we enter and find the beauty, peace, rest, and refreshment of His presence as we fellowship with Him. It is here that we are fashioned and incorporated into His garden as the seed […]

Light Or Darkness

Light Or Darkness

Light and darkness are polar opposites: the darkness of a stormy night with no light in sight verses the brilliance of the mid-day sun in a cloudless sky. This is the contrast of two kingdoms, the kingdom of God (which is light) and the kingdom of Satan (which is darkness). The question is which kingdom […]

What Do You Choose

What Do You Choose

In Deuteronomy 30:15, 19 God spells out a choice that He has always given to mankind, saying, “I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.” This is the same choice God gave to Adam at the beginning in Genesis 2:16-17, but […]

Light For The Journey

Are you going through a dark tunnel? Is the road ahead dimmed by uncertainty? Do you have questions of why this or why that? Does it seem like darkness that is all around is weighing heavily upon you and oppressing you? Well I have good news for you today: God said, “I will make darkness […]

The Shepherd And The Sheep

The Shepherd And The Sheep

Sheep comprise a large part of the agricultural life and livelihood of the Near Eastern people, including the Hebrews, and are mentioned in the Bible more than 500 times. They are also a very fitting symbol of the people of God. David, the Psalmist, and king of Israel, had been a shepherd in his youth […]
