  • In God’s Hands

    Devotionals | April 29, 2020

    Uncertain times can leave us anxiety ridden. We look for someone that we can trust, someone who will speak truth. We look for someone who will tell us how to go forward. These are the times to refocus on God. He is our security. He is our source of wisdom. He asks you and me to commit ourselves and our future into His hands. God does not fail the one who looks to Him. Will you trust Him to lead you forward?

    Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you. – Psalm 9:10

  • A Prayer for Today

    Devotionals | April 27, 2020

    Each day brings its own circumstances, conversations, and choices. Regardless of the type of circumstance—new, overwhelming, ongoing, challenging, harmonious, exciting, changing, or dictated by others—we get to choose how to respond. Our most basic choice is whether we will face today alone or with God. You can choose to meet each new day in your own strength or in God’s strength. Which will you choose today? Let David’s prayer be your prayer.

  • Peace Be With You

    Devotionals | April 24, 2020

    Can you imagine how startled the disciples were when Jesus showed up behind locked doors? They didn’t know if this person was a stranger, enemy, friend, or ghost. Hearing His greeting— “Peace be with you!”—must have calmed their initial fears. His voice, too, was familiar, as was His concern for them. When your heart is troubled, let Jesus’ presence reassure you. Listen for His voice and receive His message of peace.

  • By Faith

    Devotionals | April 23, 2020

    Living "by faith" is mentioned 22 times in Hebrews 11; the word "faith" is used almost 30 times. This chapter is about faith in God and how that faith is revealed in the lives of His people. Faith calls us to recognize that this world belongs to God. Faith calls us to align ourselves with God's purposes in the world, to obey Him despite what others think. Faith in God's promises gives us courage to walk into the future. Where is God calling you to live and lead by faith, faith in who He is and what He says?

     

  • Believe It

    Devotionals | April 22, 2020

    Jesus spent 40 days training and developing His disciples after His resurrection. He showed up at their gatherings. He revealed Himself to His followers along roads and beside the Sea of Galilee. He appeared to them behind closed doors. He sought them out one-by-one and in group settings. They learned that they could trust Him to find them wherever they went. Nothing keeps Jesus from coming to you. Do you believe this?

  • Look Around

    Devotionals | April 17, 2020

    Being used by God to positively influence those around us begins with seeing the opportunities He places in front of us. This starts with paying attention to other people, and not just ourselves. Turn your cares over to God, and trust Him to work in your life, then look around you. Is there someone who seems burdened and in need of encouragement, someone whom others overlook? Ask God to show you how you can encourage someone else today.

    Life offers constant opportunities to lead like Jesus. Each new day, week, and hour is filled with choices to trust—and submit to—Him. As we humbly choose to place ourselves in His hands, He will weave our lives into His overarching plan. He will be exalted, and we will find wisdom, strength, healing and God-based confidence. Which of these are you trusting Him for today?
