He is truly all we need. When life’s burdens come pressing in, turn to Him. He holds our lives in His hand.
He realized then that they were beyond human help, as the men surrounded him and that this family, and he, had only God to tum to.

Revelation 21 “Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.” II Peter 3: 13 Our level of anticipation for heaven grows greater as we get older. When we think of a place where sin has never entered, where there are no tears, no death, no sorrow, and no pain, our desire to experience such a place deepens. There are many ideas afloat about what we will be like there and what heaven will be like. The Bible speaks much about it, and it is best to be scriptural. Let’s not be afraid to be literal. The Bible is a literal book, and what is clearly stated…
The compassionate kindness of Jesus has been unparalleled in human history. The attributes of compassion and kindness are illustrated by many scenes from His short ministry, but they perhaps find the best portrait in His relationship with children. The Bible shows how Jesus welcomed small children into His busy schedule of ministry. He said to His disciples, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it” (NKJV; Mark 10:14-15). He healed children (John 4:46-52), cast demons out of them (Mark 7:25-30…
May 6, 2021 Read: Psalm 22: 1-24 “For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” Psalm 30:5 No night is so dark as a night when God seems silent. No night is so long as a night when we feel forgotten and forsaken by Him. The darkness thickens as the pain increases. We cry out, ”Where are you, Lord? Why have you forsaken me?” These hours can be full of doubt and dismay as we cry with David, “Why are you so far from helping me?” There is a reason that God sometimes seems silent. God wants each of…
God wants us all to slow down. The high-tech world we live in is taking us all captive. Its mad rush is robbing us of so much that is good.
It is a sad testimony for a person to be ignorant, and it’s even sadder for that person to be deliberately ignorant. Yet many supposedly-intelligent people choose that very approach to the most-basic facets of their existence. The Bible speaks of those individuals when it says, “They deliberately overlook this fact [of the beginning of creation], that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God . . .” (2 Peter 3:5-6 – NKJV) Do you know that more than 65% of twentieth-century Nobel Prize winners believed in God? Do you know that there is no observational science to indicate that life spontaneously…
No night is so dark as a night when God seems silent. No night is so long as a night when we feel forgotten and forsaken by Him.
Read: Ephesians 1: “To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.” Ephesians 1:6
The spiritual wholeness that Christ requires of those who are redeemed is more than just morality. Jesus is seeking a changed heart. That results in a changed spirit, a new attitude.
Some people decide that they are tired of their companion and get a divorce so they can marry someone they like better. Jesus said…
