Wednesday's Devotional


Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at James 1:18

"Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures."

James reminds us that we experience temptation because we are God’s special people. We are members of His family because we have been born again by the word of truth. When James uses the word "firstfruits" to describe believers, he is reminding us that we belong only to God. In the Old Testament, "firstfruits" were the firstborn of cattle and the early fruit of the ground, both of which belonged to God.

The enemy targets us because of our relationship with God. There would be no inner battle if we were truly lost.

The tests God allows to mature us can become temptations from Satan that malign us. We must be prepared for tests, realize they can become temptations, and then overcome them through the strength of our relationship with God.

Bro. Paul

Tuesday's Devotional


Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Hebrews 13:5

"He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you."

What is loneliness? I don’t know how to define it; all I can do is describe it. It’s an underlying anxiety at having no one close, a sharp ache in a moment of grief, and an empty feeling in the pit of the stomach when we know we have no one to whom we can turn. There is no anguish like loneliness.

But God has a cure for loneliness. In our walk with Him, He offers friendship, a family, and a peace that passes all understanding. When we meet Him, we are not guaranteed never to feel lonely, but we are promised that we will never be alone.

After all, He is the one who said, "I will never leave You nor forsake you" (Hebrews 13:5).

Monday's Devotional


Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Colossians 2:9–10

"In Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him."

Insight into who you are and why you are here is available only from the Creator, because you were created for Him. The missing piece in your life is not more education or better therapy. The missing piece in your life, if you don’t know Christ, is to put Him at the center where He belongs. God created you uniquely for Himself. He put a vacuum within you that cannot be filled with anything else but Him. When you stuff in all the pleasure and all the madness of this age trying to find meaning to life, you will never discover it. But something happens when you say a simple prayer giving into God and receiving Him into your life.

Then Jesus comes to live within you. God loves you, He knows you, He has a plan for your life. He wants you to know who you are and why you are here, and if you will put your trust in Him, He will give you that perspective in your life. You were created in God’s image, so you are really only yourself in relationship to God. When you let God take control of your life through His Son, life begins to have some meaning.

Bro. Paul
