Walk As David Walked (2 Sam 7:12/09)
Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

Solomon’s Temple was a magnificent structure; his riches were beyond description.

The Risk Taker
Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life' from Tom Kelley
Originally posted Mar 23, 2017

There are risk takers and there are risk takers. Yesterday I met a risk taker. Or, I should say, I came close to meeting a risk taker. She was driving a black pickup truck. She thought she could pass safely with a blind hill ahead. She was right. She could pass safely, but only because I stood on my brakes when… [read more]

Confused Christianity
'Winging It' from Stan Smith
Originally posted Mar 22, 2017

For a major portion of my Christian life one of my biggest concerns and prayers have been for the Christians who aren't. We don't have to name names. I wouldn't want to try. But you know the type. They go to church or went to church. They often call themselves Christians. They're often quite sure they are.… [read more]

Word from Scotland' from Sandy Shaw
Originally posted Mar 20, 2017

We are spending time looking at the fruit of the Holy Spirit - nine characteristics in the ONE FRUIT - and today we come to Patience – or longsuffering.

Two men were escaping from their enemy. At one point they made a small make shift raft in a river so it would help pull them down stream.

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

Old age. A subject all of us strive to ignore. What a depressing thought! As everyone ages, certain events and interest become less important. A subject no one likes to think about. Even the young. Its too far away. The older, it's too close. Others are obsorbed with the present. Usually, there is an almost… [read more]

Daily Devotionals  from  StudyLight.org

The Most Delicate Mission On Earth
Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"

Goodness and purity ought never to attract attention to themselves, they ought simply to be magnets to draw to Jesus Christ. If my holiness is not drawing towards Him, it is not holiness of the right order, but an influence that will awaken inordinate affection and lead souls away into side-eddies. A beautiful saint may…… — (click here to read more)

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

"Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught." - Luke 5:4 We learn from this narrative, the necessity of human agency. The draught of fishes was miraculous, yet neither the fisherman nor his boat, nor his fishing tackle were ignored; but all were used to take the fishes. So in the saving…… — (click here to read more)

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

I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of. — Be… — (click here to read more)

Refreshing Sleep
Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"

"When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet."   Proverbs 3:24 Is the reader likely to be confined for a while to the bed by sickness! Let him go upstairs without distress with this promise upon his heart "When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid." When we go to bed at night, let this… — (click here to read more)

Devotional for 'Adar 27'
Voice of the Lord

Do you desire to win? Do you secretly divide the world into winners and losers? Are you extra friendly with the winners in life and perhaps a little cautious with life's losers? ...stop being competitive toward those around me and allow the Lord to lift me… — (click here to read more)

God I Have a Problem
Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life

"Houston we have a problem." Those words signaled the beginning of difficulties for Apollo 13. The crew radioed NASA and informed them of various malfunctions that were happening.

Meeting the Person
'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes

We spend one more day setting the stage before lifting the curtains on this most important subject of the nature and character of God. It must not be assumed from what has been said over the past couple of days that the study of Scripture and contemplation of the principles which God has built into His Word are unimportant.…… — (click here to read more)

Endure
"Today's Word" with Skip Moen

Endure - We aren't finished with this verse yet. There is a lot here. Now we look at the word "endure". In the Greek, it is hupophero. Once again, this is a combination word. It comes from hupo (which means "under") and phero (which means "to bring or bear"). This combination word means "to underpin,…… — (click here to read more)

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

Our Lord Jesus looked after the rich young ruler as he walked away, but He did not follow him or attempt to coerce him. The dignity of the young man's humanity forbade that his choices should be made for him by another. To remain a man he must make his own moral choices; and Christ knew this and permitted him to go his own chosen way. If his human… … — (click here to read more)

"Bring them hither to Me." Matthew 14:18
The Believer's Daily Remembrancer

"Bring them hither to Me." Matthew 14:18

OUR compassionate Lord was surrounded by a starving, fainting multitude; His disciples had only five small coarse loaves, and two little fishes, and yet He had bidden them to feed the company. The commands of Jesus are often intended to try our faith, and bring us as children to His feet. He…
