“We have this hope as an anchor for the Soul, firm and secure” (Hebrews 6:19). In stormy weather, it’s not the size of the boat that matters. You need a strong anchor that will never move an inch, even when the wind howls and the waves pound the hull. Jesus is the true anchor for […]

“We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us” (Romans 8:26). The Holy Spirit prays for us when we can’t pray on our own. He asks what we would ask if we knew what he knows.

Lord, when I am dazzled by the bright lights of this world, remind me that your kingdom lasts forever and everything else fades away. Amen.

“We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you” (2 Chronicles 20:12). This is my favorite one-sentence prayer because it perfectly describes how most of us feel most of time. Admit your weakness, cry out to God, then stand back and see what the Lord will do.

“When my lifework is ended, and I cross the swelling tide, When the bright and glorious morning I shall see; I shall know my Redeemer when I reach the other side, And His smile will be the first to welcome me. Refrain: I shall know Him, I shall know Him, And redeemed by His side […]

Sometimes we look at life and think, “Our glory days are all behind us.” But for the Christian, all our glory days are yet to come.

Can God set a table in the wilderness? Yes, he can. But you’ll never know as long as you stay in Egypt.

Do not mistake God’s delays for God’s denials. His “no” may simply be “not this, not now, not yet.”

“Let us pray for all — the worst, the hardest, and the most unbelieving. Let us continue praying for them year after year, in spite of their continued unbelief. God’s time of mercy may be a distant one. Our eyes may not see an answer to our intercession. The answer may not come for ten, […]

“But where sin increased, grace multiplied even more” (Romans 5:20 CEB). The translators struggle a bit because Paul uses a verb in the first clause that means to add, but in the second he uses a verb that means to multiply. Sin is addition. Grace is multiplication. It’s not as if sin goes up to […]

“No matter the jarring, a jar of fresh water can’t spill filthy water. When you’re upset, you upset what’s really in you.” Ann Voskamp

We do not pray because we know what we need. We pray because we don’t know but God does.

“One great tragedy of our era is that our mouths have gotten bigger as our hearts have gotten smaller. Canyon mouths betraying pebble hearts.” Beth Moore

“I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore, Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more, But the Master of the sea heard my despairing cry, From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.” James Rowe

“Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.” Rick Warren

Help me to do serve you right now, O Lord. Save me from the folly of thinking that tomorrow is somehow more important than today. Amen.

“When He shall come with trumpet sound, Oh, may I then in Him be found, Dressed in His righteousness alone, Faultless to stand before the throne! On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand.” Edward Mote, 1834

When God speaks, that ends the argument.

“Father, forgive them for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34). If you wonder what it means to love your enemies, try forgiving them while they murder you. We need this because we will never be more like Jesus than when we pray for those who have hurt us deeply.

“Love . . . always hopes” (1 Corinthians 13:7). We are told endlessly these days that we must accept other people just the way they are. Certainly that is where we must start. But that is not the end of the matter. Biblical acceptance is based on hope in God. It says, “I accept that […]

“Love covers a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:7). Don’t forget to forget what needs to be forgotten.

“I will never leave you” (Hebrews 13:5). He stood by your side in your darkest moments. He protected you when Satan attacked. He knew when you were betrayed. He saw every tear. He didn’t give up when you tried to run away. He held you in his hands when you did that stupid thing. You […]

Ebook: In His Steps

No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
