God Visits His People


And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people. (Luke 7:16, Holy Bible, King James Version)

The Jewish nation had waited centuries in anticipation of the promised Savior but most didn’t recognize the baby Jesus as the Messiah. Now an adult, Jesus brought a widow’s son back to life. This miracle, an unexplainable event that defied nature, first shocked the crowd. Then they understood. This man who dwelt among them must be the Christ because even nature obeyed when He spoke.

Prayer: Lord, I recognize Your presence as you continue to visit Your people with miracles today as You did in New Testament times. You are more than a healer. You are the Savior of souls. Amen.

Worth the Wait


For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6, Holy Bible, King James Version)

December is a time of anticipation and waiting. Waiting for family or guests to arrive. Waiting for the perfect time to open gifts. Waiting for dinner to be served. Wait. Wait. Wait.

Imagine hearing this prophecy during Isaiah’s time. What great rejoicing from God’s people that they would be rescued from despair. They waited a week. A month. A year. Ten years, then fifty. One hundred years later, still no savior. It was a long wait.

One day, more than 700 years later, the prophecy became reality when Jesus was born. It was worth the wait.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, you are the fulfillment of the Isaiah’s prophecy. You were not sent just to the ancients, but to us now. Hope for all humanity. Amen.

We can live joyful every day because our happiness is not based on circumstances, but rather it is predicated on God Himself. Joy dwells with God which means wherever God is there is joy!…

The Beauty of Holiness

My! What beauty God has afforded us!  As dangerous as snow and ice can be, just take a moment to look at its beauty! There is nothing as pure as fresh fallen snow. It makes the world look glorious, pure, spotless, covered in white raiment ready for the King’s admiration. The thought of snow puts…

Jehovah-Nissi

“And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi {that is, The LORD my banner}:”(Exodus 17:15 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible). The Word of God reminds us today that we must construct altars of remembrance for the victories we have won while holding high the banner of His…
