Today's Devotion: Rain From Heaven, Salvation in the Earth

Wednesday Greetings,

The Lord has commanded His salvation in the earth:

"Rain down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness; let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together. I, the Lord, have created it." 

Seeing there was no justice, no righteous man or intercessor—His own arm brought salvation, and His own righteousness, it sustained Him. Praise God!

Scripture References: Isaiah 45:8Isaiah 59:14-16

Happy Blessed Easter! Christ Arose Triumphant


Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who raised Him up triumphant from the dead, and has given Him a name above all names, that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of the Father.

Thanks be to God for the hope we have in Christ Jesus, that we too shall be raised, yes, this mortal shall put on immortality and shall be forever with the Lord.


Praise God! We are justified by faith in the Son of God, who humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Amen.

Saved By Grace

Thanks be to God for His amazing grace! He gave us a Deliverer to save us from our sins and the penalty thereof, through the sacrificial offering of His Son as the perfect Lamb of God. How deep and wide is His love for humanity, whom He created in His image and likeness. Such love cannot be measured; it's boundless and free. If you don't know Him, His arms are open wide. Come as you are.

"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost! Amen.

God of All Comfort is Near


Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts
us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort
those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which
we ourselves are comforted by God. For as the sufferings
of Christ abound in us, so our consolation
also abounds through Christ.

Christmas Devotional: Divine Purpose

God Himself in human flesh—born of a virgin—to save the souls of men. This miracle cannot be fathomed by the human mind, but what it has accomplished is real for all who have had an encounter with the true and living God and His Spirit that raises us from death to life, from darkness to light.

He whom God delivered from a virgin's womb has come to deliver us, so that we being delivered, can walk in the light and be used of Him to take His light to a dark world. He has come to live in us. Praise the Lord, our Emmanuel!


Mary who found favor with God, believed the word spoken by Gabriel the angel, a messenger of God and yielded herself to God's divine purpose. She didn't understand how, but believed in the Lord, saying "Behold the handmaid of the LORD, be it unto me according to thy word." (Luke 1:38)

For the angel had said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end." (Luke 1:30-33)

At the appointed time, it came to pass: Jesus was born.

Mary and Joseph were not told beforehand, that there would be no room at the inn and that their baby (God's Son) would lay in a lowly manger; they didn't know (prior to a dream from God) that King Herod would seek the young child to destroy Him. They didn't foresee that at a very young age, Jesus would stay behind at the temple after the Feast of the Passover, causing them much sorrow and anguish. They didn't know of all the powerful miracles Jesus would wrought, neither did they comprehend all the things Jesus would suffer as He went about doing good.

Yet Mary pondered many things. Oh, what pain she must have felt as she looked upon Jesus in agony on a cross, being mocked, wounded, bruised and about to die for sins he did not commit.

We know that sorrow was turned into joy and mourning into dancing. For Christ arose, ascended on High, has led captivity captive and has given gifts to men.

Like Mary, we must trust in God and His divine purpose for our lives and the world. As a yielded vessel in the hands of God, (as so many before us,) we can persevere in the midst of trials and tribulations, we can fight the good fight of faith, and finish our course with joy.

"Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory. The Lord has made known His salvation; His righteousness He has revealed in the sight of the nations. He has remembered His mercy and His faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God." (Psalm 98:1-3)

None of the world's most beautiful gifts can compare to the gifts we receive by the Holy Spirit to transform us from our old, sinful nature to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ and empower us to preach His gospel; for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved." (John 3:16 & 17)

A Heart Like God's


Good morning and greetings in the wonderful name of Jesus!

The Word of God says, "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, nor let the rich man glory in his riches; but let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight," says the Lord. (Jeremiah 9:23 & 24)

A Prayer for Today:

Give me a heart like Yours, Lord. Give me the wisdom from above and the understanding of You; that I may desire to do the things that are pleasing in Your sight and to walk humbly with My God, all of my days. Amen.
