Psalm 91 “I Got You Covered!”

Something very powerful happens in our hearts and in our outward circumstances when we begin to truly value our position in Christ – the secret place of God Most High; a place where our heart is at rest and not tormented by worry and fear; a place where we have genuine spiritual intimacy with Christ; a place of protection and care and love. The closer we draw to him the more sure and solid our…

Psalm 91: The Secret Place

Psalm 91 tells us that God has a secret place.  God has created a secret place in His presence for us, for you. The secret place of the most high God is a safe place, where you are fully known, where you are accepted and loved. It is a place also of divine protection.

Does Jesus Laugh?

Do you think Jesus ever smiled? Or laughed? We will not find a verse in scripture that says Jesus laughed. But we can certainly believe that He did. He was the kind of person others were drawn too. Scripture says He was kind and compassionate. He welcomed children in a culture that pushed them aside. How can we, the saved, ever be gloomy or miserable – we are the chosen ones!! Our hearts are filled…

The Unclaimed Inheritance

But the pharisees – you can almost hear them huff with displeasure. They are like the older son – always doing what was required of them, never, in their own sight, failing to be a good son. And the celebration angers them – it seems highly unfair that such a fuss should be made over a willful sinner. I would like to suggest that more of us have acted similarly to the older son than…

The Gates

Jesus is the gate, the entry point into the kingdom. To enter through Jesus is about our believing. When I believe that Jesus died for me I gain citizenship into the kingdom of God. Jesus is the only way through which we enter but there are two gates. Don’t be confused, Jesus is both gates.

Ask. Seek. Knock

Jesus has given His audience three invitations into prayer: Ask, Seek, Knock. There is an emphasis on praying because it is of tremendous importance that we pray. Asking is very important, God will not trample on our freewill, God will not take control away from us until we surrender it. So asking God then allows God to answer and to move in our lives.

Do Not Worry; Do Not Judge

Listen to the truth found in these worry quotes: “Worry is like a rocking chair. It keeps you busy but gets you nowhere”; “Worry does not take away tomorrows troubles; it takes away today’s peace.”; “Worrying is using your imagination to create something you don’t want.” You don’t need to be a Christian to know the fruitless waste of energy that comes from worry. Jesus teaches that we can avoid the worry trap when we instead seek first…
