Man in God’s Image
The Way' from Kevin Pauley

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness. They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the livestock, all the earth, and the creatures that crawl on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; He created him in the image of God; He created them male and female. -… [read more]

Chicken or Egg?
Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

Of course you have heard the age-old conundrum, “Which came first; the chicken or the egg?” It has been the subject of many a heated debate. Did you ever stop to question why this puzzle is so difficult to answer? Have you ever seriously considered the implications of the fact that this enigma has survived over… [read more]

Battery Power
Find the Call' from Andy Castro

There is a flash light craze going on in about every store you walk into. Some are small enough to fit on a key ring and some come with tri-pods. Some take double "A" batteries and some take 6 Volt batteries. Some are in-bedded in hat rims and some come mounted on glasses. It is really kind of phycotic on the… [read more]

The Days Of Small Things
'Christ in You...'' from Dale Krebbs

Even in them, Jesus is there!   What is your greatest concern, the thing about which most of all you would want   Christ’s help? Even if its a small thing, do you believe that it is too trivial for Him to hear, and to care, and to answer?   Small things per se, alone in their smallness, go unknoticed.… [read more]

The Winds
'Christ in You...'' from Dale Krebbs

Oh! if we could only see the wind! Even the physical wind - as it manipulates us physical and mentally...causing us to change our plans for our daily routine. The unseen power of blessings...and sometimes utter destruction as it whips wildfires that destroy almost everything in its path. We can’t see the wind.… [read more]

The Godzilla Syndrome - Part 4
Refreshment in Refuge' from Gina Burgess

If Christians were to follow Paul’s caution to “Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men,” and especially to take to heart his admonition that peace begins with us (Romans 12:17-18) then the acerbic tongue would not blow fiery destruction without regard to mayhem,… [read more]

Walking Among Dangerous Ground
Inspiration For You' from Randy Mitchell
Originally posted Feb 24, 2018

  It's sometimes nice getting something for nothing. No matter if it’s hitting the sweepstakes jackpot, being picked for a job you really weren’t qualified for, scoring a free tank of gas with your next fill up at the local 7-Eleven, or a winning hand in Vegas, it’s in our genes from the moment… [read more]

"But seek first the kingdom of God and its righteousness. . . ." Matthew 6:33 (NIV)             I had an issue bothering me. I tried to pray about it. As I went out to get some supper, I realized I could go to the golden arches, drive through, and then travel… [read more]

Tozer and Predestination
Point of Reference' from Fred Price
Originally posted Feb 23, 2018

       I have to admit that some scripture still confuses me.  In particular, that used to espouse predestination, such as Rom. 9:16 - 21.  Salvation declared as not dependent “…on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.”  I get that, but then to… [read more]

On December 3 of this year, Caleb Tony was returning home early in the morning.  He was cutting across Sebree Road to Long Lick Road and his home in rural Scott County, Kentucky.  As he got into a curve he felt his right front wheel catch the side of the pavement and then drop onto the deep shoulder of the road. … [read more]

When Temptation Comes
Quiet Time' from Kasia Kedzia
Originally posted Feb 20, 2018

Even though I have experienced an amazing amount of personal and professional success lately, I have numbed pain and therefore numbed joy. I have longed to do the right thing but my selfishness has gotten in the way. There is a passage of scripture in Jeremiah 17 that has always stirred my heart in warning as it speaks… [read more]

If the First Verse of the Bible Is A Lie Then How Reliable Is The Rest of The Bible?
Word from Scotland' from Sandy Shaw
Originally posted Feb 19, 2018

  In Genesis Chapter 1, we read that unique, beautiful, and powerful sentence - a sentence which can be found nowhere else in the world. “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Only in God's holy word do we read such a truth.   What a sentence - we must never forget it… [read more]

Daily Devotionals  from  StudyLight.org

Morning and Evening for November 6
Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"

"I will pour water upon him that is thirsty." - Isaiah 44:3 When a believer has fallen into a low, sad state of feeling, he often tries to lift himself out of it by chastening himself with dark and doleful fears. Such is not the way to rise from the dust, but to continue in it. As well chain the eagle's…… — (click here to read more)

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

Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. — Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him. Be strong in… — (click here to read more)

Set Apart
Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"

"Ye shall be named the priests of the LORD."   Isaiah 61:6 This literal promise to Israel belongs spiritually to the seed after the Spirit, namely, to all believers. If we live up to our privileges, we shall live unto God so clearly and distinctly that men shall see that we are set apart for holy service and shall name us the priests of the LORD. We… — (click here to read more)

Devotional for 'Adar 10'
Voice of the Lord

Many look for miracles as the proof they need to trust in God. This is particularly true of our people. Rabbi Sha'ul (Saul; i.e., Paul) said, "Jews ask for signs" (1 Corinthians 1:22). To ma (Thomas) wanted evidence, and so do we. Yet Yeshua promised a special blessing for those who trusted. ...believe in Yeshua's transforming power. I will look for… — (click here to read more)

The Best You Can Do
Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life

James Garner, as Bret Maverick on the long running TV western, used to make the comment, "My old pappy used to say..." Evidently his old pappy was full of pithy sayings and folksy wisdom that stuck with his son as he went through life. Well, I was blessed with a very wise old pappy of my own, and a lot of what…… — (click here to read more)

The need to know
'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes

The Bible is a veritable mine of information on the fact of God's faithfulness. More than 4,000 years ago He said: "As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease" (Gen. 8:22). Every year furnishes us with fresh evidence that He has not gone back…… — (click here to read more)

Cast off
"Today's Word" with Skip Moen

Cast off - In the English language, we have only two "voices" (a grammatical term) active or passive. But in Greek, there is a third voice, called the middle voice. The middle voice signifies a special interest in the speaker about the action described, in other words, that whatever the action is, it is being done…… — (click here to read more)

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

The absence of spiritual devotion today is an omen and a portent. The modern church is all but contemptuous of the sober virtues--meekness, modesty, humility, quietness, obedience, self-effacement, patience. To be accepted now, religion must be in the popular mood. Consequently, much religious activity reeks with pride, display, self-assertion, self-promotion,… … — (click here to read more)

Ye do dishonour Me. - John 8:49
The Believer's Daily Remembrancer

Ye do dishonour Me. - John 8:49

This is a complaint brought against us by our Lord Jesus Christ.

Let us listen to it. He has assured us of His love, that He seeks our good, that He will not be wroth with us; we dishonour Him therefore by our fretfulness under trials and troubles; by our murmuring when all is not as we wish; by our impatience…
