Rest for Your Soul

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 This passage…

Watch, Stand Fast, Love Well

“Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love.” 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 As you end a letter to a close family member or friend, one who you want to encourage, what would you say? What words would you offer? Paul’s closing words to the church…

The Eyes of the Lord are on the Righteous

“For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayers; But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” 1 Peter 3:12 What should we, as Christians know and keep in our minds as we walk and suffer for righteousness’ sake? The Apostle Peter…

The Rule of God’s Peace

“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Colossians 3:15 How should those who have died with Christ and have been raised with Christ now live? Today’s focus verse sits nestled in the answer to this question. The Apostle Paul provided the saints in Colossae…

Being Taught God’s Law

“Teach me, O Lord, the way of Your statutes, and I shall keep it to the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; Indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, for I delight in it. Incline my heart to Your testimonies, and not to covetousness. Turn away my eyes…

God is Self-Existent

“God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.” Acts 17:24‭-‬25 It’s true that man can’t grasp…

God is Eternal

“Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.” Psalm 90:2 I love looking at landscape paintings and pictures. I likewise really enjoy those of mountains. Looking at mountains, especially up close in person, reminds you of their massive stature. That stature…

God is Infinite

“Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than heaven—what can you do? Deeper than Sheol—what can you know? Their measure is longer than the earth and broader than the sea.” Job 11:7-9 Some things are beyond our ability to fully comprehend. Some are most difficult to…

A Beautiful Ensemble, Part 2

Psalm 138:1-2 “A Psalm of David. I will praise You with my whole heart; before the gods I will sing praises to You. I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name For Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.” In a devotion I wrote in March…

O Lord, How Long?

“O Lord, how long shall I cry, and You will not hear? Even cry out to You, “Violence!” and You will not save. Why do You show me iniquity, and cause me to see trouble? For plundering and violence are before me; There is strife, and contention arises. Therefore the law is powerless, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous;…
