Success Comes From Within

"Now Joseph had been brought down to Egypt, and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, the captain of the guard, an Egyptian, had bought him from the Ishmaelites who had brought him down there. The Lord was with Joseph, and he became a successful man, and he was in the house of his Egyptian master. His... Continue Reading →

Waiting on God

"Patience is not [merely the] ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting." (Unknown) This is a truth that cannot be overstated. I have many times seen people give up... not on waiting as much as on maintaining a trusting and faith-filled attitude during the timeframes that God has set or...

Our Testimony

"As I was on my way and drew near to Damascus, about noon a great light from heaven suddenly shone around me. And I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?’ And I answered, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ And he said to me, ‘I... Continue Reading →

Listen to him." (Mark 9:7 NLT) The directive to "listen to him" was preceded by the affirmation of pleasure.... Continue Reading →

For His Glory I Am

"For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory." (Rom 11:36 NLT) All things come from Him. All things exist by His power. All things are intended for His glory. I need to remind myself from time to time that I am not the center of the universe. That... Continue Reading →

God Frustrated

"Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance" (Malachi 3:14) As I read through the book of Malachi I hear the voice of frustration and relational pain. I hear a God who is hurt. Frustrated. What the Lord was asking for was simply love. He... Continue Reading →
