For some people, […]

  During the Bible days, the swords the soldiers used in battle were large, heavy, and sharp with two edges.  Some other weapons they had in their possession were spears, bows, arrows, and battleaxes.

  getty images Have you been watching TV lately? I know… it’s a mess. But if you answered yes, then you have no doubt noticed a sad trend–the world will take an average everyday person and “celebritize” them into an overnight success. In many cases, those who have been made instant celebrities have compromised and […]

  Americans have an infatuation with police shows, crime antics, and mysteries. On an average night in America, the television line-up of shows reveals dozens of episodes that involve police, crime stories, unsolved mysteries, and the like.

  Lean not to your own understanding, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path (Proverbs 3:5-6). This scripture is very valuable to every believer.

  There were no other options. When my family would shop for certain things, even if there were stores that were closer or even advertised a cheaper price, my folks would more than likely still patronize the place that they had for years. My grandfather kept the same mechanic for thirty plus years. My grandmother […]

    Every day, people are speaking to their mountains. They are saying what they really believe. They are saying things like, “I am never going to get out of debt! My husband’s drinking problem is getting worse! My wife will not tell me the truth! My kids are out of control! They won’t listen […]

“Then God spoke to Samuel: “I’m sorry I ever made Saul king. He’s turned his back on me. He refuses to do what I tell him” 
(1 Sam. 15:11). The real reason why Saul disobeyed the commands of God and eventually lost God’s favor is simple: He didn’t see the little things as BIG things. […]

    There is someone reading this today who feels like they’re in a place that’s almost where God would have them.  Is this you?  You’ve done all you can do, said all you can say, cried all you can cry, prayed all you can pray, believed all you can believe, recited all of the […]
