My Daily Devotional


Are You Ready

“Humble yourself before the Lord, and he will lift you up.”
James 4:10
Each day when I send out my daily devotional, my main theme is to prepare all my readers to be ready as today could be the day that Jesus returns and that they need to be ready if He came back today. When I turned on the television this morning there was a report that said that the population of the world this week would exceed “Seven Billion” people. Do you realize that all seven billion of these people are sinners? Each one of these seven billion people have one thing in common, as they will all die, unless Christ comes first to claim His children. Each of these people will spend their eternity in either hell or Heaven. Death is the great equalizer, and does not spare the rich man from the poor man, as it will claim all people. For many of these people, today will be their last day on this earth as their life will end, and their fate will be sealed. They will have no tomorrow to get their life in order, no time to accept the saving grace of Jesus, and all the wealth, money, and material possessions they accumulated will not matter anymore. Yes, death is the great equalizer, and it spares no man. If you were one of these people that death will call on today, do you know where you will spend your eternity? In the few short years you have on this earth, which James calls “a vapor”, have you prepared for your eternal home? Have you spent your time laying up treasures that will rust and rot away, or have you been laying up treasures in Heaven? These are serious questions that only you can answer, as no one can help you, and you are on your own. I want to impress upon you the seriousness of this important matter as when you take your last breath you need to be prepared to meet Jesus, as you will not have another opportunity. I encourage you to think about this, and take a moment right now and ask Jesus into your heart, as you still have time to accept His offer to secure your future and spend your eternity with Him.

My Daily Devotional


Something Beautiful

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”
Ezekiel 36:26
I am sure many of you began your life thinking that during your life that you were going to conquer the world and had lofty dreams of what the future held for you, but as you have gotten older these dreams are not coming to fruition. There was a wonderful song written by Bill and Gloria Gaither called “God Made Something Beautiful Of My Life”. Some of the words are, “Something beautiful, something good; All my confusion He understood. All I had to offer Him Was brokenness and strife, But He made something beautiful of my life.” These words are beautiful, and describe so well what our life is like before we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. We are without hope and have absolutely nothing to offer God except our brokenness and despair however God can transform us through His amazing grace, and forgive us of all our sins, and can make something beautiful of our lives. There is nothing that you have done in your past that God is not willing to forgive, as His grace is sufficient to forget all your sins, and let you begin anew. God’s transforming grace is available to all who will receive it. God has not given up on you, even if you have given up, or others have. All you have to do is ask God to give you this grace. You don’t have to wait for it, as you can receive it any time you ask for it. But you have to make the first step and ask Him for it, and then be willing to let Him take control of your life. You don’t have to remain in the broken condition you are in today, but simply asking God to be your Lord and Savior, can restore you and put a new spirit in you. Jesus is ready to receive you and help you become the person He sees you to be–radically transformed and fully committed for His glory. When you take this first step and ask Jesus into your heart, He can make something beautiful of your life.

My Daily Devotional


God’s Waiting Room

“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.”
Psalm 37:7
As most of you already know I spent my career in Hospital administration, and know all about what people go through while waiting on their loved ones to recover from their illness. They spend many hours each day in the waiting room. What should you do when doors you thought God had opened suddenly slam shut? You’re thinking, “Lord, I did all the right things in my eye, but you are closing the doors. Why is this happening?” If you are experiencing this in your life, don’t panic, as God is still directing your steps, just not in the way you wanted. God is aware of your situation, and although you may feel your hopes and dreams are crushed, this is the time to rely on His wisdom and unfailing love. God knows the plan He has for you, so now is the time to trust Him to work things out for your good. You will find out that when God closed this door, He has just opened a new door which will lead you to an even greater reward. Remember, that your timing is not God’s timing, and when you begin to understand God’s timing, you’ll be better able to see why your doors were suddenly closed. The problem that most people have is that they want things done in their time frame, which often is not in the time frame that God has for them. When you don’t see the clear path in front of you, this is where your faith and trust in God must come into play. You will need to wait, with the expectancy that God knows the path you are to follow, and is leading you in the way He wants you to go. God has each of us on a definite plan and time frame, and while He’s getting us ready, He keeps us in His waiting room, where we are learning to trust Him for everything. If God has you in His waiting room today, it’s because He wants you to reach a new level of maturity and when ready, He will release new levels of blessing in your life. Be patient, wait on God.

My Daily Devotional


The Clouds Of Life

“At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.”
Luke 21:27
This morning when I woke up after a good night’s sleep, and came to my computer to send out my daily devotionals, there were storm clouds in the sky and a rumble of thunder outside my window. I am sure that many of you may be facing storm clouds in your life and be fearful of what the future holds. Have you ever thought about the significance of the clouds in your life? Without the clouds you wouldn’t be shielded from the burning sun, there would be no lavish sunsets, no beneficial rain and no beautiful landscapes. The most beautiful scenery in any picture is the fluffy clouds floating against a sky of blue. Just looking at a beautiful sunset with the fiery red rays of the sun piercing through the clouds is one of the most beautiful sights you can behold. But the thing that should excite you the most is to know that God is behind the clouds. When the storm clouds of life are constantly over your head, and you can relate to the cartoon character in the comic strip Charley Brown, who always had a black cloud constantly over him, look beyond the clouds and you will find God. The Bible says that God will test you with trials and troubles, but won’t let you bear more than you can stand. He will always be there to lead and guide you, to overcome any storm of life. God wants you to persevere over any obstacle, but will let you be tested with difficult times so you can learn to trust Him, and put your burdens on His shoulders. You are never alone as Jesus is always with you through your difficult times. He is just behind your clouds to lift you up and carry you. Just as the sun breaks through the clouds, God is there just waiting to let His light shine on you. You will face clouds in life—sometimes slight, but sometimes dark and frightening. Whatever clouds you face today, ask Jesus, the light of the world, to help you look behind the cloud to see His glory, His mercy, His grace and reveal the answer to your problems.

My Daily Devotional


A Glimpse Of Heaven

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.”
1 Corinthians 2:9
Don’t you sometimes wish we could live forever? I love my family, I love my wife, I love my children and my grandchildren, and could not imagine living without them. I know Heaven is a beautiful place as was the Garden of Eden. I know I can’t even imagine it, can’t even fathom what it will be like, and know that I want to be there, but my love for all of my earthly family is strong, and I cannot control my thoughts of leaving them behind. In the years I’ve been on this earth, I’ve lost many people I loved – my father, my grandparents who taught me all the things I needed to be the person I am today and a couple of years ago I lost my dear mother But for everything I’ve ever lost and I miss all of them dearly, God has filled my cup to overflowing. He has blessed me with the most wonderful wife ever, He has given me a wonderful family, provided all my needs, and most of all has given me the promise of an eternal home in Heaven. To live here on earth, it seems like more than enough sometimes. But we know that can’t be true. Heaven was made to be more than this life offers. But what exactly is Heaven? Heaven is a place where there will be no more goodbyes. It’s a place filled with people who had faults on earth but are now made perfect, wrongs made right, hearts made whole. Heaven is a second chance and Heaven is everything we love plus a thousand, million things we can’t even begin to understand. Heaven is seeing God’s face with the faces of those you love. I’m so glad that we have a Savior who loved us more than enough, a God who loves us more than enough to see past what we can’t imagine, to prepare a place for us where we can live forever, in a way that if we could understand we’d probably knock down the doors of Heaven just trying to reach it. What a gift and a treasure to be found worthy of Heaven, where I will see the face of God, and where I will spend my eternity. Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross for me.

My Daily Devotional


It’s Your Choice

“The wages of the righteous bring them life, but the income of the wicked brings them punishment.”
Proverbs 10:16
The words of this scripture are so true as when we obey the words of God and do His commands the rewards will be an eternal life in Heaven, but if we go the way of the world, doing wrong and evil things we will reap what we sow and spend our eternity in Hell. We have the choice to determine where we want to spend our eternity. Having spent my 45 year career in Hospital Administration I saw thousands of people die in my hospitals over the years and each one had made their choice as to where they would spend their eternity. Many of these people woke up that morning not knowing in a few hours that they would have that life ending heart attack, or would be in that life ending car accident. Death many times does not give us any warning that our life will be ending. Our life on this earth is just a mist, that appears for a time and then it is gone. Unfortunately many of the deaths I witnessed were not planned, as the people who were now lying on a bed in my morgue at the hospital did not know they would be there when they woke up that morning. They had no time to prepare for death as they had already made their choice by asking Jesus into their hearts and then following God and making Him first in their life, or they had lived their life getting caught up in the ways of the world, and had not been a follower of Jesus. They had already made their choice as they had not realized that each day was a gift from God where they had a choice which way they would live their life, to either accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior or to reject God and follow Satan and the way of the world. If they had seen death staring them in the face, I am sure many would have made a different choice, but time ran out on them and when they took their last breath, it was too late. As you are reading this devotional this morning, it is not too late for you, as you still have a chance to determine where you will spend your eternity. Make the right choice.

My Daily Devotional


Reaching Others

“He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”
Mark 16:15-16
This was the command that Jesus gave to his Disciples just before he ascended into Heaven. What a great command to leave with them, as it was now their place to spread the news throughout the world and tell others about the great gift that Jesus had given to all mankind. This great command was carried out as we have the Bible which is being carried to all nations telling us what it takes to be saved and have an eternal life in Heaven. This command that Jesus gave that day still applies to all Christians, as we are now the ones that are to be telling others about the saving grace of Jesus and leading them to salvation. As you are reading this devotional today, I want to ask you if you are still obeying this command. Do you obey this command when you go to work, or go to school, or when you go to the grocery store, or visit with your fiend’s in your neighborhood? Every place we go is an opportunity to witness for Jesus and obey this command. Does everyone you meet know that you are a Christian or do you not use these opportunities to definitely let them know that you are a follower of Jesus? It is easy to let everyone you meet know that you are a Christian by simply saying “God Bless You” when you finish talking to them. If you haven’t done this simple thing, start today by telling others. “God Bless You.” It will become a habit after you have done it a few times, and you will be amazed at what these three simple words will mean to others. This opens the door to let others know that you are a Christian, and when you meet these people again will give you the opportunity to be a witness to them. You can follow this with a question asking them where they go to church, and invite them to your church. This simple approach can help you reach out to others, and witness to them and tell them about Jesus, and His gift of salvation.
