Not Condemned


"She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more." John 8:11

As we journey through this thing called life we are going to make mistakes along the road. We will have ups and downs and slips and falls as we journey. It is important that we do not allow our downs to keep us down too long, or our falls to paralyze us in not getting back up and trying again. We may not succeed the first time we do something, but we certainly cannot succeed if we stay down and never try again.

New Things


"Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?" Isaiah 43:19 (ESV) 

Many of us like getting new things, it does not necessarily have to be brand new, but if it is new to us it is still new. When we get a new car we want everyone to see our new car, when we get a new house, we invite people over for house warming gatherings so they can see our new house. We like when people notice our new outfits and new things that we have, for we work hard for those new things that we have. However, it becomes difficult to show off the new you, because many times we resist the new things that God is trying to do in our lives.

Hiding Place


"For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock." Psalm 27:5

There are times in life when no matter how much we try to avoid trouble; trouble has a way of finding us. No matter how much we try to go the other way or how much we look the other way, trouble can sneak up on us before we know it. What should we do we when trouble finds us, do we panic and try to ward off the trouble, or do we simply trust God to see us through it? The Scripture reminds us that, in the time of trouble God will hide us in His pavilion in the secret of His tabernacle He will hide us, and set us on a rock.

A Firm Heart


"He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord." Psalm 112:7 (ESV)

Good things happen to bad people, and unfortunately bad things happen to good people. Things can spring up on us out of nowhere, and before we know it we are in a struggle. The sun can be shinning in our lives one minute, and it can be pouring down rain the next. Life has its way of giving us twist and turns, and it can be a fearful thing when you are not expecting the next turn. No one wants to receive bad news, and with the evolution of technology we can receive news faster than ever before. When bad news is received it can put an immediate damper on whatever it is going on in our lives.

Promise Keeper


"And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform." Romans 4:21

Each of us has been promised many things, and some of the things we were promised we received, and then there are some other promises that have fallen short. Some people promise us things with every intention of doing what they have vowed, but they cannot fulfill the promises because something beyond their control prevented them from accomplishing their goal.

Fire Starter Or Encourager


“So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire!” James 3:5 (ESV) 

Each of us at one time or another in our lives has experienced getting a bump, bruise, or even a minor cut from something we were doing. Initially we found ourselves in pain and the wound did not look good, but over time we were able to experience healing, and although we may still have a mark of where we were bruised, the pain has subsided and left. There have also been times when we have been wounded by words spoken to us by others.

Stay In His Presence


 “Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me.” Psalm 51:11 (ESV)

Being in the presence of certain people can bring us joy and laughter as we enjoy their company. There are other people who we would prefer not to be in their presence at all because we know that it will not be a joyful experience. There should be no doubt for any of us that there is always joy when we are in the presence of The Lord. When we are in His presence there is a sense of security, and no matter what we are going through we know that everything is going to be all right.

Never Forget


"Then beware lest thou forget the Lord, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage." Deuteronomy 6:12

It can be disheartening when we do something for someone who has begged us to help them, and after we help them they act like they do not know us. There are some people who will talk to us only when they need something from us, and if they do not need anything from us they do not have time for us. We can go out of our way and spend countless hours helping someone out, and when we need them to do something for us, they are seemingly too busy.

Working On Weakness


“and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed.” Hebrews 12:13 (ESV)

Each of us has areas of our lives that we are really strong. We have those things that we can do without much thought or effort in making them happen because we are good at them. Then there are those areas of our lives that we are not so strong, and we find it difficult to accomplish some tasks simply because they are not our strong areas. It is in those weak areas of our lives that we must depend on The Lord to give us the strength to accomplish those things.
