'Winging It' from Stan Smith
Originally posted Oct 19, 2016

There is no doubt that our world is becoming more hostile to Christians. Oh, sure, I wouldn't classify it as "persecution". I mean, we're being told we can't practice our faith in some instances, but it's not like other places in the world where they're being tortured and killed for… [read more]

Only those who have been enabled can believe in Jesus Christ. We who believe in Jesus Christ, and in all that He has said and done, usually remember when we first began to believe.

Daily Devotionals  from

Direction By Impulse
Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"

There was nothing either of the nature of impulse or of cold-bloodedness about Our Lord, but only a calm strength that never got into panic. Most of us develop our Christianity along the line of our temperament, not along the line of God. Impulse is a trait in natural life, but Our Lord always ignores it, because it hinders…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening for March 12
Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"

"Thou shalt love thy neighbour." - Matthew 5:43 "Love thy neighbour." Perhaps he rolls in riches, and thou art poor, and living in thy little cot side-by-side with his lordly mansion; thou seest every day his estates, his fine linen, and his sumptuous banquets; God has given him these gifts, covet not his…… — (click here to read more)

Morning / Evening Devotional — october 21
Daily Light on the Daily Path

Of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. — Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God. His Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things. — If children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if so be… — (click here to read more)

God's Multiplication Table
Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"

"A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time."   Isaiah 60:22 Works for the LORD often begin on a small scale, and they are none the worse for this. Feebleness educates faith, brings God near, and wins glory for His name. Prize promises of increase! Mustard seed is the smallest among… — (click here to read more)

Devotional for 'Tishrei 19'
Voice of the Lord

Part of the biblical tradition of Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles) is the use of the four species. According to Leviticus 23:40, these include the palm, leafy myrtle, willow, and etrog (citron), a lemon-like fruit with some important distinctions. Similar to the lemon, the etrog has a pleasant fragrance, yet it is known to be sweeter to taste. While the… — (click here to read more)

The Last Word
Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life

Pot shots. Yeah, pot shots. Those zingers that people fire about other people. Nasty little remarks that are intended to capsulize the very essence of another person in a pithy and neat mini-essay. Most of us have let them go from time to time. Most of us have been on both ends of them as well. Famous people seem…… — (click here to read more)

A Sacrificial Head
'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes

Suppose a tiny seed had a will of its own and decided to save itself by refusing to be buried. It would abide alone. It would save itself but would not save others. When it decided to be buried and die, then the result would be a golden harvest. Take a mother: she goes down into the valley of the shadow of death to bring…… — (click here to read more)

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen

Compassion - The Hebrew root is raham. It speaks of God's deep affection for His children. This word implies that God's choice to show mercy is His unconditional decision. It is not fostered by any acts of human merit. Because of God's compassion, He shows His mercy and postpones our deserved punishment. This…… — (click here to read more)

Morning / Evening Devotional — October 21
Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer

Too many of us object, perhaps unconsciously, to the rather evident fact that the maintenance of the devotional mood is indispensable to success in the Christian life.

It is nothing else than constant awareness of God's enfolding presence, the holding of inward conversations with Christ and private worship of God… … — (click here to read more)

After he had patiently endured he obtained the promise. - Hebrews 6:15
The Believer's Daily Remembrancer

After he had patiently endured he obtained the promise. - Hebrews 6:15

Abraham was long tried, but he was richly rewarded. The Lord tried him by delaying to fulfil His promise; Satan tried him by temptations; men tried him by jealousy, distrust, and opposition; Hagar tried him by contemning her mistress; and Sarah tried him by her peevishness.
