My Daily Devotional


Everything Is Possible

“Everything is possible for him who believes.”
Mark 9:23

This scripture is what Jesus said to the father of the boy with an evil spirit, just before He ordered the evil spirit to come out of him. There are many scriptures throughout the Bible where we are told that if we believe, that anything is possible through God. The Bible even tells us that if we only had faith as small as a mustard seed, we could move mountains. We see miracles being performed throughout the Bible, where people only touched the hem of Jesus’ garments and were healed. The disciples performed miracle after miracle because people had faith, and believed enough to be healed of their infirmities. Just like the scripture above states, “Everything is possible for him who believes”, and this promise is still alive today. God still does miracles today, and if we believe and have enough faith, our bodies can still be healed, our relationships can still be mended, and all our needs can still be met. God has not forgotten us, but we have forgotten Him, which is why we see very few miracles happening today. When we turn our backs on God, and don’t follow His teachings, we can’t expect God to answer our prayers and receive His miracles. When we don’t make God number one in our lives, and don’t even have a few minutes each morning to pray and read our Bibles, God is not going to answer our prayers. If you need a miracle for a health issue, a relationship, a financial need, or some other issue, God is still there, but you must reach out to Him, and make Him number one in your life. Then you must believe and have enough faith to get your miracle, because everything is possible for him who believes.

My Daily Devotional


Don’t Forget God

“If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.”
John 15:6

Is your life to the point that you remain in touch with God on a daily basis? The scripture above tells us that if we do not remain in God, that we are like a branch that will be thrown away and wither, and be burned. I know that many that are reading this message today, will say that they simply do not have the half hour or hour to spend with God each day. If you are this person, you need to realize that you must find and must take the time, as there is no other option. The Bible plainly tells us that God needs to be number one in our life, which means that you must take the time to devote to Him. You cannot give Him the crumbs from the table, and try to fit Him into your busy schedule, instead your schedule needs to be changed to revolve around Him. Your goal must be to remain in God every day, and you must not waver from this. Staying in God each day means being consistent, getting into a routine where you spend time with Him every day. You must remember that you, and only you, can set and establish your daily schedule, and if you are filling up your day, and not setting aside time for God, you are not being the person God expects you to be. You must remember that Satan is also competing for your time, and will create interruptions, and cause problems that will distract you, from spending time with God. I want to encourage you to step back, look at your schedule for today’s activities. See if you have included God in it. If it has not included God, please change it now, and add time for Him, as he must be part of your day.

My Daily Devotional


Use Words Wisely

“A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.”
Proverbs 25:11

Have you ever thought about your choice of words that you use daily? Just being able to say the right word, the helpful word, the encouraging, correcting, guiding, blessing word is like apples of gold set forth in a stunning and beautiful way as the scripture above indicates. There is something incredibly powerful about our words, especially when the right word is said in the right way at the right moment. We all need to take time to reflect on the nature of our own speech and the words that we use. We need to ask ourselves if our words reveal us to be a believer, blesser, builder, encourager, teacher, counselor, consoler and friend, which is what our words need to convey to others. If we find that our words convey us as a grumbler, complainer, criticizer or blamer we need to try to adjust our attitude, as this is not the nature that God would want us to have and convey to others. James 3:9 “With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness.” Perhaps you may find that you are a little bit of all these things, the up-lifter and encourager at certain times, and a demoralizer and discourager at other times. God wants us to be a positive influence at all times in our lives; to be uplifting and encouraging; to be faithful in all things, and to be a witness of God’s grace wherever we are and in whatever we do. We must guard our use of words so that they always show the love in our hearts. Your words can carry a powerful message, and be a blessing to others, and you must allow the Holy Spirit to be the master of your tongue, so that what you say, when you say it, and how you say it, may build people and honor your Lord with apples of gold in a setting of silver.

My Daily Devotional


Time Management

“Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let not your hands be idle, for you do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well.
Ecclesiastes 11:6

As I was growing up I remember my grandfather and grandmother always being busy working. We grew up on a farm and there were always chores to be done, from the time we would wake up in the morning until we went to bed at night. Even with all the things that needed to be done on their farm they seemed to always have enough time to look after their neighbors, to read their bibles, and spend time with their family. Even with their busy schedules everyone’s needs were taken care of. They always had time to spend with me and be involved in whatever I was doing. I do not ever remember anytime that they would not take the time to talk to me or spend time with me when I wanted their advice. I have often thought after spending my life in the business world and knowing the value of time management, just how well they managed their time. Their secret to managing their time, I am convinced, was that they turned their time over to God. Their plans were God’s plans, and they followed his commands and obeyed him in all the things they did. Nothing wastes more time for any Christian than pursuing their own plans rather than God’s plans. My grandparents knew God’s will for their lives and followed his direction. They lived their lives following God’s commandments. They were faithful, diligent, industrious and creative in their lives. They planted their crops, tilled them, but them waited for God to send the rain and the sun to make the seeds grow. They did not worry about becoming wealthy as they knew God would provide for their needs. Proverbs 23:4-5 “Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like and eagle.” The pursuit of so many Christian’s today is that their plans are not God’s plans. Their pursuit is that of acquiring riches, and their own personal gains and desires. Their plans do not mesh with God’s plans. By looking at our purpose, our priorities, our plans and our goals we can quickly see how we spend our time. How we spend our time determines who and what we are. When we decide to manage our time by God’s priorities we will find that we will become effective time managers. My grandparents mastered time management by living their lives following God’s plan and will for their lives, obeying God’s commandments and living their lives for him. When we decide to follow this simple format we will find that we will have enough time.

My Daily Devotional


Reckless Words

“Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”
Proverbs 12:18

When I was growing up I had a very bad speech problem as I stuttered, this was probably an inherited trait as my father had a problem and my daughter also had a problem. Both my daughter and I have pretty much outgrown our problem as most people don’t know we have ever had any difficulties. I can recall several incidences however during my school days where I was made fun of by fellow classmates as they would laugh when I had difficulties speaking in class. Therefore I know first hand just how bad reckless words can hurt. I have always been aware of how words can hurt others and have always been cautious to never try to say things that will make others feel bad. I know so many people however that have no regard for the feelings of others and will express themselves regardless of the circumstances or whom it might hurt. I am convinced that daily, perhaps hourly, we need to ask God to help us bite our tongue before voicing careless remarks that can hurt, even devastate. We need to ask Him to help us think before we speak. I believe our speech can be a sin if used improperly to hurt others, as so many times it is more than a goof or slip of the tongue, but is used to get back at others or to hurt them. It is a sin that we must confess, and is one we should ask God’s help to improve in this area. We should pray that God will help us use our words to help and not to hurt.

My Daily Devotional


Are You Happy

“You were taught with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.”
Ephesians 4:22-23

Are you happy? If you are not happy with your life and only see trials and struggles each day, you need to read this devotional very carefully. Every Christian who has been born again will be renewed in our thoughts and our attitudes. We will no longer have the desire to think evil thoughts, and be as negative as we were when we were unbelievers. I have always thought that each of us can choose to be happy and positive if we want. I recently read a story about a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed that she had only three hairs on her head. “Well,” she said, “I think I’ll braid my hair today?” So she did and she had a wonderful day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head. “Hmm,“ she said, “I think I’ll part my hair down the middle today?” So she did and she had a grand day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. “Well,” she said, “today I’m going to wear my hair in a pony-tail.” So she did and she had a fun, fun day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn’t a single hair on her head. “Yea” she exclaimed, “I don’t have to fix my hair today!” The moral of the story is that our attitude is everything we make it. We can look at life in the way this woman did and make the best of the situation and be happy. We can have a positive attitude about everything in our life, as this is our choice. When we are born again we need to put off our old self, and be born again into our new self. We need to adjust our attitude and be content to follow the will of God in our lives. Where ever he leads us we need to be happy and contented. Adjusting your attitude makes you happy.

My Daily Devotional


Your Mission Field

“If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.”
John 7:37

Each day through these daily devotionals, I get to share my thoughts about God, and hopefully get to lead others to Christ through my messages. Many days I am rewarded with e-mails where someone has accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. These messages make my day when I wake up each morning and find that someone has asked Jesus into their hearts. I realize that many of you may not have the opportunity to share Jesus in this fashion, but this does not mean that Jesus does not want you to not be His messenger. On the contrary, God has given you a commandment, not a suggestion, just as he has given me to share your faith in Christ with the hurting and lost world. Your job is to simply tell the people that you come into contact with each day, in your job, in your school, in your neighborhood and with anyone that you meet, about the hope and the love that Christ has for them. You can do this simply by your actions, your words and even the expression on your face. Where ever you go, and in whatever you do, people should recognize that you are different, as you radiate the love of Jesus in your life. Your light should shine brightly for all to see that you are at peace and radiate that you are a child of God. A simple, “God Bless You”, spoken as you greet the checkout clerk at the grocery store, or when you hold the door open for someone, will minister to them. Just by your actions, or kind word, may be just enough, for someone who is having problems to want to imitate your behavior, and see the power of what God can do in their lives. God has placed you where you are in your life for a reason, and you need to be the beacon of hope, and the light for the people He has brought into your life. As you go out into your mission field today, go out with the attitude that I want to be God’s light to the world around me, and be an example of God’s love. That is your mission field.
