I See Dead People
Find the Call' from Andy Castro
Originally posted Jun 17, 2018

It's true. I see dead people. It's not a daily occurrence but on average every couple of weeks or so. I have to wonder why I am privy to see them. I didn't ask for this and I certainly didn't expect it to happen. When it first happened, about 3 months ago, I was quite shocked and was very moved emotionally. It… [read more]

Daily Devotionals  from  StudyLight.org

Morning and Evening for July 14
Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"

"If thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it." - Exodus 20:25 God's altar was to be built of unhewn stones, that no trace of human skill or labour might be seen upon it. Human wisdom delights to trim and arrange the doctrines of the cross into a system more artificial and more congenial with…… — (click here to read more)

Morning / Evening Devotional — June 19

Holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.

Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy. — As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in… — (click here to read more)

A Sound Heart
Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"

"Let my heart be sound in Thy Statues: that I be not ashamed."   Psalms 119:80 We may regard this inspired prayer as containing within itself the assurance that those who keep close to the Word of God shall never have cause to be ashamed of doing so.

My Strength is in God
Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life

"Blessed is the man whose strength is in God." Psalm 84:5 That little verse speaks volumes to me. As a golfer I have had to learn certain things which have, in turn, taught me about God.

Confident trust
'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes

We spend another day considering Naomi's advice to Ruth following the latter's midnight vigil with Boaz. Yesterday we focused on the fact that Naomi's advice to Ruth centered on the word "wait."

What has been entrusted to you
"Today's Word" with Skip Moen

What has been entrusted to you - This English expression is the translation of a single Greek word. The word is parakatatheken.

Morning / Evening Devotional — June 19
Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer

The tests for spiritual genuineness are two: First, the leader must be a good man and full of the Holy Ghost. Christianity is nothing if not moral. . . . But the test of moral goodness is not enough. Every man must submit his work to the scriptural test. It is not enough that he be able to quote from the Bible at great length or that he claim for… … — (click here to read more)

The Believer's Daily Remembrancer

"All His Saints are in Thy hand." Deuteronomy 33:3

EVERY believer is a saint, separated by the purpose of God: sanctified by the operations of the Holy Spirit; set apart for God, and devoted to His service. Every saint is in the hand of Jesus; in the hand of His mercy--in the hand of His power, and in the hand of His providence. The…
