He Secures You
by Delman Coates on February 24th, 2023
“For the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.” - Proverbs 3:26  Yesterday we discussed how God sees you. When you are frustrated, God listens and is fully capable of handling your problems. When your heart breaks, His heart breaks. When you cry, He cries with you.  But not only does he see you. He secures you. What does that mean? It means that God assumes full r...  Read More
You Are Safe

“Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the Lord means safety.” - Proverbs 29:25  If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, I have good news for you. He is with you wherever you go. Do you understand what this means? God will show up in your life whenever and wherever you need Him.  This is the type of God He is! Yesterday I mentioned that I recently came across...  Read More
Already Yours

“I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.” - Mark 11:24  When you pray and ask God for something, do you believe that He will do it? Do you trust that you are asking for something in accordance with His will and are confident that He will give it to you? If so, you should walk as if you already own it. It’s yours. What you are asking for ...  Read More

Simply Surrender
by Ministry Support on July 23rd, 2022
“‘...why are you untying that colt?” And the disciples simply replied, ‘The Lord needs it.” - Luke 19:33-34 What is interesting about the story of the donkey’s owners in Luke 19 is that as the disciples are untying and taking their colt, they didn’t ask any questions. They didn’t say, “Now, what is He going to do with it?” or “What are y’all going to do with my money, I mean, my colt?”  They didn’...  Read More
A Sense of Humility
by Ministry Support on June 7th, 2022
“Then Abraham spoke up again: ‘Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, though I am nothing but dust and ashes, what if the number of the righteous is five less than fifty? Will you destroy the whole city for lack of five people?’” - Genesis 18:27-28Over the last couple of days, we have talked about the ingredients of Abraham’s prayer in Genesis 18.

A Desire For Him
by Ministry Support on April 25th, 2022
“Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you.” - Psalm 73:25As we continue to discuss the things we need to “quench our thirst” for Christ, or “rekindle the fire,” we look at the next thing we must do. We know from yesterday we must allow God to replenish our souls, but we must also tap into our deep desire for Him.As Psalm 42 says, “as a deer pants for water my soul ...  Read More
Something Deeper
by Ministry Support on October 25th, 2021

“When Abram heard that his relative had been taken captive, he called out the 318 trained men born in his household and went in pursuit as far as Dan.

Choosing God’s Best Pt. 1
by Ministry Support on June 21st, 2021
“I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate, I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. ” - Romans 7:15-18 ...  Read More
Complete In Christ
by Ministry Support on December 4th, 2020
And in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority. (Colossians 2:10)  A few years ago, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote, “Marriage responds to the universal fear that a lonely person might call out only to find no one there.” Here he associated marriage as a response to the “universal fear” of being single, where singleness is projected as a ...  Read More

by Ministry Support on November 1st, 2020
Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. – Ephesians 5:17  Anyone who has spent any time with God knows that discovering the will of God is anything but an exact science. There aren’t six easy steps like the scientific method, and boom, you have the will of God for your life. In fact, it’s not like that at all. It’s a journey that requires careful attention and con...  Read More
