    Come Boldly

    “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 KJV I’ve been pondering about the word “boldness” since reading Hebrews 4:16 last week during my morning devotions… The dictionary defines boldness as “fearless and daring; courageous.” I can tell you that boldness is not within my nature. It’s not one of my positive qualities. In my youth, I was so shy that I could barely look others in the eye. It was a struggle to make new friends in high school. Once I made a friend, though, I thoroughly enjoyed the friendship. I…

    Good Morning, Lord!

    “My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.” – Psalm 5:3 KJV This simple Bible verse of David’s psalm spoke volumes to my heart this week. There’s three simple points that I would like to share with you from my perspective. 1. Prayer was a priority for David. David prayed in the morning — before getting side-tracked with other activities of his day. He didn’t neglect to say, “Good morning, Lord!” “Thank you for your goodness and your mercies.” (Psalm 145:9) “Thank you for another day.” (Psalm 118:24) We, too, have a wonderful privilege…

    Do You Have Confidence That Your Prayers Are Being Heard?

    I’ll be honest.  Sometimes it seems like my prayers are just hitting the ceiling.  But, those thoughts are certainly not from the Lord. These thoughts stem from: – The lack of faith Dig into God’s Word more.  Reading and hearing God’s Word increases your faith. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17) Choose Bible verses on faith and memorize God’s Word to instill these in your heart. – The lack of patience We want our prayers answered “N-O-W” — so God must not be listening. REMEMBER >>God’s timing couldn’t be more perfect! God sees the whole picture.  It’s a good thing we’re…

    Sometimes You Just Don’t Feel Like Praying, But…

    The truth is… most of the time I don’t feel like praying. I could easily pass for the twin sister of Martha, who was cumbered about with much serving (Luke 10:38-42 KJV)  Martha was very concerned about the things that needed to be done. They were good things, but she fretted more about the serving and preparing of the food than being concerned about the time spent at Jesus’ feet like her sister, Mary, enjoyed doing. I have hundreds of things on my to-do list. Okay, to be totally honest… most of them are on my “mental” to-do list because I don’t actually write them all down… For instance, giving…

    Let’s Take a Closer Look at Jesus’ Example

    Bible Reference: Luke 6:12-16 KJV 12 And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. 13 And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles; 14 Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew, 15 Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes, 16 And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor. Every time you read through the Bible, you’ll be able to glean new golden nuggets.  Last week, when I read the…
