Lost Hope or Living Hope

Lost Hope or Living Hope

The book of Lamentations portrays the people of Judah, God’s covenant people who were given the covenants and promises, but had now rebelled and disobeyed, breaking the covenant. For this reason God withdrew His hand of blessing; punishment, destruction, and judgment had come upon them, and under these conditions hope seems to have been lost, […]

Growing Faith

Growing Faith

“And the apostles said to the Lord, Increase our faith” Luke 17:5. Now Romans 12:3 tells us that “God has dealt to each one a measure (limited portion) of faith.” Every one of us who are Christians has been saved by grace through faith (see Ephesians 2:8). From the moment of salvation we all live […]

Trust In God’s Word Equals Hope

Trust In God’s Word Equals Hope

Hope, one of the anchors of the Christian life, is deeply rooted in the same garden as faith. The Psalmist sums it up in 119:81, “… I hope in Your word” and here, the word that is translated “hope” from the Hebrew language, means to wait, and implies to be patient. Looking at hope in […]

Bonding Faith

Bonding Faith

Probably the greatest picture of bonding in the natural world is found in true marriage when laying aside the modern trend, where marriage is entered into lightly, and then at the early signs of difficulty or of one not getting their own way, there is separation and divorce, with each treading their own path. True […]

Abiding Faith

Abiding Faith

The purpose of a vine, particularly a grape vine, is to bear fruit; but in order to bear fruit, the branch must stay connected to the vine, as we see in John 15:3, where Jesus uses a vine and its branches to illustrate Himself and our relationship with Him. Now, the question is, how do […]

Resting Faith

Resting Faith

The fourth chapter of the book of Hebrews speaks about entering the place of God’s rest, using as a backdrop the Israelites, to whom He had promised to give the land of Canaan, “a land flowing with milk and honey” (meaning a land of abundant provision and blessings) (Exodus 3:8, 17; 13:5). God had promised […]

Claim God’s Promises

Claim God’s Promises

The Bible says, “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20). Yes means yes, and Amen in the New Testament means firm or trustworthy, as when we so often say, “Surely!” or, “So be it!” Brother Peter tells us […]

The Power Of Healing Through God’s Word

“He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions” (Psalm 107:20); healed in the original language means to mend or cure, and delivered means He released, rescued, and/or made an escape out of their pitfalls, which can have a wide range of applications. Perhaps one of the biggest battles we fight […]

Conquering Fear By God’s Word

Conquering Fear By God’s Word

Fear and faith are at opposite ends of the spectrum. As the Bible says, “fear involves torment” (1 John 4:18). The fear we speak of (not to be confused with the awesome, reverential fear called the “fear of the Lord”) is designed by the enemy to bring us under bondage to worry, anxiety, agitation, stress, […]

The Power Of God’s Word (Knowing Christ-Part 1)

We read in Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword …” and this tells us that the word of God is energetic, active, effective, and working. It is something that is said – the thought, topic, reasoning, motive, and expression – specifically the divine expression […]
