My Daily Devotional


Be Prepared

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Proverbs 9:10

As I was reading the newspaper this morning I saw where a local high school student was killed tragically in an automobile accident last night. He was a star on the local High School football team. He was only 18 years old and will not experience a life that so many people take for granted. So many of our friends and neighbors around us die each day, and I am sure that many of them are lost, and have not accepted Jesus as their Savior. It is wonderful when people live to be an old age, and have had so many more opportunities to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior, but so many die young and do not have all the opportunities that older people have to be saved. We need to be aware that our life could end today, as none of us are promised a long life, as only God knows what He has destined for us. This is why it is so important to get our life in order and be prepared for whatever our fate will be. We are not promised tomorrow or even the rest of today, as we do not know what the future will hold. We all will die someday, and will end up in either Heaven or Hell, as there are no other options available. I have discussed many times in my devotionals what Hell will be like, as it is a place that has been feared since the beginning of time, and is a dark place of endless night, and a dreary place with no hope. Most people think about Hell more and more the older they get, but for many there may not be an option as their days are cut short. Our life on earth could be likened to a vapor that appears for only a short time. The only thing we know from all the verses throughout the Bible is that Hell is a place where we don’t want to go. Heaven is the only other option, and is a place where everyone should long to go, as it is a place of peace, contentment, joy and abundant hope. There is no worry, no trouble or trials, no sickness, only happiness. I would encourage you to think today about securing your eternal future home, and ask Jesus into your heart. Be prepared while you still have time.

My Daily Devotional


Anything Is Possible

“Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, “Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?”
Genesis 17:17

If you are dealing with problems in your life today that you are not sure how to handle, this message if for you. Always remember that there is nothing that is impossible with God, and even if your problems seem insurmountable, God can solve them. The story of Abraham and Sarah is one of the most intriguing stories in the Bible. God had shown favor on Abraham, who obeyed God in everything He asked him to do. He had earlier followed God’s command to leave his country, his family and his people and go to a new place. Abraham had obeyed and was loyal to God, but when God told him at age 100, and Sarah at age 90, that they were going to have a son, they both thought this was impossible. But a year later they did have a son whom God had requested that they name Isaac, and whom God established a covenant with. To have God tell you these things, that I am sure seemed strange to Abraham, must have required an amazing amount of faith and trust. But this is how God worked in the life of so many of the great Biblical leaders, who had the faith and trust to follow God no matter what He asked them to do. I wonder what people today would think if God told them to build an ark in the desert, or to go to a distant land without any instructions, or that they would have a son at 90 years old. Would we have the faith and trust to follow these instructions? However God also tells us that if we have as little faith as a mustard seed that we could move mountains, and that all things are possible with God. There are dozens of accounts all through the Bible about amazing things that God has done. These accounts should give each of us hope in any kind of circumstance that we will ever face that anything is possible, when we believe and have faith in God.

My Daily Devotional


God Provides A Way

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
James 1:2-4

For many people this is a tough scripture to embrace. How can they consider it pure joy, when they are going through a divorce? Or in the aftermath of the death of a loved one, or the loss of a job? Or when they are told that they have just been diagnosed with cancer? What will it take to see the joy through all the difficulties and problems that they face during life? We should always realize that God knows what is happening when the storm clouds begin to roll in, and when our mountains become difficult for us to climb. Only God can give us this joy and change our perspective. Testing develops perseverance. In order to learn how to persevere, we have to go through some trying times. Think back on the trials in your life. What were the results? Did you make changes in your life? Did God help you get through them? Remember that as you continue to serve him you are growing in faith, and trusting Him more. These times of testing is God’s way of showing you that you are not in control, but He is Perseverance must finish its work. We can’t go from diapers to dungarees in the snap of our fingers. Living takes time, and there are “pains” that go with it. Sure, it hurts sometimes, but know that the uncomfortable seasons mean that you’re growing, and becoming mature and complete. When you were a child, you didn’t have the answers to all of life’s experiences to draw from. Now that you’re older, hopefully you can see how you have grown closer to the Lord, and how he has changed you, and provided for you during these times. God knows the plans He has for you, and will see you through.

My Daily Devotional


When Your Hut’s On Fire

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me.”
John 14:1

I am sure that many of you have seen the story of the man who was shipwrecked on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed constantly for God to rescue him, but each day as he scanned the horizon, no boats were in sight. He eventually managed to build a small hut out of driftwood, to provide shelter. One day while out scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames. With smoke rolling to the sky, he felt the worse had happened, and that God had forsaken him. He cried out, “God, how could you do this to me.” Early the next morning, he awoke to the sound of a ship approaching the island. When his rescuers reached him, he asked them how did you find me? “We saw your smoke signal, they replied.” So often in life we are like this, as when bad times come, and they will, we cannot give up hope. God always knows what is happening in our life, and we must not give up faith and trust that he will provide for us, in all our situations. We must continue to press forward in our prayers, and our relationship to Him, and trust in His promises that He will provide all that we need. He will never forsake us or leave us. It is so easy to let the worries of the world get the best of us, and feel that we are alone, and that there is not a solution to our problems. We want the problems to go away immediately, in our time frame, and in our own design, but we often don’t realize that God has His own plans for our life, and in His time and in His own way, will always provide for us, as long as we trust and have faith. So the next time your little hut seems to be burning to the ground, it just may be a smoke signal that summons the Grace of God, who will give you victory over your situation.

My Daily Devotional


Be Happy

“A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.”
Proverbs 15:13

Are you happy? I believe God wants all of us to be happy. Happiness is a choice we make each day we live. When we get up in the morning, we can choose to be happy and enjoy our day. If we have our focus on being happy for the day, we can maintain our happiness. If however we only half heartedly have our vision focused on being happy, we may find that the first obstacle we meet can cause us to lose our happiness. The perfect start for a happy day is to learn to smile more often. A hearty smile will set the stage for the first meeting with your family, your friends and your co- workers. According to the medical profession it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile, so unless this is your idea of weight control, learn to smile more often and let your happiness show through. Don’t let others take away your happiness. Realize that your environment does not stop you from being happy. You can’t prevent the driver that cuts you off in traffic and blows his horn at you, or the rude waitress when you get your morning coffee. You can’t fix everything in your workplace, or even in your homes; however this cannot prevent you from being happy and contented. The thing that we need to learn from these examples is that we cannot fix everything. It is impossible to witness for God if we are grumbling, complaining and unhappy with everything, and everybody we meet. God wants us to be happy, and be a positive influence on people we meet during our day, and if we are happy the presence of God in our life will shine through. Happiness is catching.

My Daily Devotional


Yield To God

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Proverbs 3:5-6

Do you often find yourself struggling with issues, and do not know the right decision to make, or have a great deal of uncertainty in your mind as to how to deal with them? I am confident that many of you find yourself in this very situation today, as you read this devotional. If you find yourself in this situation, I would encourage you to simply think about the word “Yield”. As the scripture above states, we need to trust in the Lord, and lean not on our own understanding, and then Yield ourselves and our issues over to God. If you “Yield” and turn everything over to God, it opens your life to the presence, and reality that God is there for you. When you have struggles and uncertainty in your life, just take a moment, close your eyes, extend your hands to God, and Yield your life to the Lord, who loves you. Ask Him to give you wisdom and understanding, as to how to deal with your problems, and to make the right choices and decisions. God will hear you, as He hears all our prayers, and will give you peace in making whatever decision you need to make. Ask Him to open or close any door, and to lead you to where He wants you to be. When you make your decisions, and Yield to God’s will in your life, He will make your paths straight. He will lead you to the place where He wants you to be, but you have to Yield yourself, and place your trust and faith in Him, God will not disappoint you, if you yield your problems and issues over to Him, as He will make your paths straight.

My Daily Devotional


Happy Anniversary

“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”
Mark 10:7-8

Today is my anniversary and my devotional today is to celebrate it with all of my readers. On July 10, 1965, I became the husband of Margaret Sue Lefevers and my life has never been the same since. We will be celebrating our 52nd anniversary today, and our life together during these years has been a wonderful blessing to me. We have enjoyed so many good times together, and have stored up so many wonderful memories of our life together as husband and wife. God has blessed us through the years and has given us three wonderful children, and so far seven grandchildren. We have experienced much success in our life together, as God has provided our needs plus an excess of material possessions that we give Him the glory for. Margaret has been the perfect example of what a Christian wife should be, as she exemplifies the traits that God desires and talks about throughout the Bible. She has provided the presence of God in our family for me and our children to see every day. She has been the extreme example for me and my children in her prayer life and in her daily devotion to studying the Word of God, as our children have seen her Bibles become worn and marked with dozen of scriptures that she has claimed for them. She prays for them and all the family on a daily basis and one of the most valuable possessions the children all cherish is her Bible with all her notes and underlined verses. God has blessed me so much by giving Margaret to me as my wife, as she has made my life complete. Our love has grown more each year and our life together is growing sweeter and sweeter as time goes by. My prayer is that God will allow both of us to grow old together and continue to give us good health and continue to bless both of us. Thank you God for giving Margaret to me, as my wife, as my life is now complete. To my beautiful and precious love, I love you more each day and will spend the rest of my life with you..
