The Ebb and Flow of Power in Politics
Point of Reference' from Fred Price
Originally posted Oct 24, 2014

God's Words For US' from Cecelia Lester
Originally posted Oct 24, 2014

    “I no longer call you servants, because a servant doesn’t know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known.” John 15:15 (NIV)   This scripture humbles me. It speaks of a new relationship between Jesus… [read more]

A Good Thing
Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life' from Tom Kelley
Originally posted Oct 23, 2014

"Rain, rain, go away. Come again some other day. Little Susie wants to play." Or Johnny, or Billy or Cathy. Or the Northeast.

Be True to Yourself
'Winging It' from Stan Smith
Originally posted Oct 22, 2014

That's the conventional wisdom. "You have to be true to yourself." That's what they tell you. I mean, wasn't it Shakespeare who said, "To thine own self be true"? And who was wiser than Bill? I would suggest, however, that if you are going to take a biblical worldview,… [read more]

Sweet Fragrance
Refreshment in Refuge' from Gina Burgess
Originally posted Oct 21, 2014

GOD smelled the sweet fragrance and thought to himself, "I'll never again curse the ground because of people.

It Can Be Dangerous To Sail Off Without Jesus Christ
Word from Scotland' from Sandy Shaw
Originally posted Oct 20, 2014

 This incident where 5,000 men are fed is called a miracle.    Many years ago at a young folks Bible Class we agreed that “A miracle is God at work”.    Is that not such an easy description of what happened in Matthew Chapter 14?    We do not know how many women… [read more]

Gentle Persuasion
'Christ in You...'' from Dale Krebbs
Originally posted Oct 19, 2014

Do you feel somehow that God is attempting to get and demand something from you that is your's, that doesn't belong to anyone but you?

Daily Devotionals  from

The Eternal Crush Of Things
Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"

A Christian worker has to learn how to be God's noble man or woman amid a crowd of ignoble things. Never make this plea - If only I were somewhere else! All God's men are ordinary men made extraordinary by the matter He has given them. Unless we have the right matter in our minds intellectually and in our hearts affectionately,…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening for March 8
Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"

"We must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God." - Acts 14:22 God's people have their trials. It was never designed by God, when he chose his people, that they should be an untried people. They were chosen in the furnace of affliction; they were never chosen to worldly peace and earthly…… — (click here to read more)

Morning / Evening Devotional — october 25
Daily Light on the Daily Path

Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. If two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. — He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that… — (click here to read more)

God First, Then Extras
Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"

"But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."   Matthew 6:33 See how the Bible opens: "In the beginning God."

God's Social Graces
Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life

You've been in the situation. You've been invited to someone's home for supper. You arrive just a little early so as not to offend the people who invited you. Then you ask to be excused to use their bathroom. Once you finish in the bathroom you feel it only proper to wash your hands. You now are faced…… — (click here to read more)

One Long Search for God
'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes

We need to be reminded that there is in life a dark and terrible problem - the problem of evil. Herbert Spencer in Natural Law in the Spiritual World defines physical life as "inward correspondence with outward environment." When we take in food, air and water, we live. When we don't, we die. There must be a response…… — (click here to read more)

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen

Blameless - This is a word that comes from the ritual of sacrifice. It is amomous. It means, "without a blemish or spot". It describes someone who has been declared "not at fault". It is the perfect word to use when we cry out, "Wait. It's not my fault!" The only problem is that when it comes to personal sin,…… — (click here to read more)

Morning / Evening Devotional — October 25
Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer

I do know something of the emotional life that goes along with conversion to Jesus Christ. I came into the kingdom of God with joy, knowing that I had been forgiven. I have had people tell me very dogmatically that they will never allow "feeling" to have any part in their spiritual life and experience. "Too bad for you!" is my… … — (click here to read more)

Am I in God's stead. - Genesis 30:2
The Believer's Daily Remembrancer

Am I in God's stead. - Genesis 30:2

All our mercies are to be traced up to our God, and all our miseries to ourselves. We are constantly making ourselves wretched, by departing from our God, or by putting creatures in His place.

We often put persons and things in God's stead in reference to our affections, loving them inordinately; in reference…
