“Can plunder be taken from warriors, or captives rescued from the fierce?” But this is what the Lord says, “Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save.” Isaiah 49:24, 25 NIV) Motivating Monday! As I asked Jesus, “Who do You want to encourage today?” He is faithful to show how to encourage. Today’s Scripture is important to grasp for those in a fierce battle. There is a force pulling children away from Biblical Truth set in their youth. Many millennials […]
But now that you have been set free from sin and have become a slave to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:22, 23 NIV) Motivating Monday! It’s October and post season baseball is in full swing. I love watching baseball and excited the Cardinals and Astros are in the playoffs. However, Saturday my favorite teams all lost- Texas Aggie Football, Cardinals, and Astros. Then last night, as I was praying […]
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consist in all goodness, righteousness, and truth) and finds out what pleases the Lord. (Ephesians 5:8, 9 NIV) Forward Friday! I’m still excited from Bible study. Different from BSF, this is the study of C. S. Lewis…The Screwtape Letters. Have you ever read or studied this book? It’s very interesting, and informative on the devil’s deceptive tactics. The devil tries to attack our daily lives…little by little to grip. How do we move forward when there […]
At these words the Jews were again divided. Many of them said, “He is demon- possessed and raving mad. Why listen to him?” But others said, “These are not the sayings of a man possessed by a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?” (John 10:19-21 NIV) Motivating Monday! An absolute of all we go through, Jesus has experienced. The Jews were divided on Jesus’ identity- like Americans are divided today. Keep in mind, these were God’s chosen people who were divided. We can easily agree- naturally, believers and non-believers think differently. When God’s people are divided, […]
I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:17b-19 NIV) Motivating Monday! Being rooted and established in love…very interesting. Love is key to releasing a full measure of the fullness of God. Can we possibly imagine? Many may be saying, “No way! How can it be possible to be rooted in God’s […]

Find yourself blessed to find one who will sharpen with iron. Though the words are sometimes harsh and/or hard to swallow know it is a blessing, as I have. Christ provides many words for us through the day, we have to be willing to see, hear and move into His will. Praising Him even in the storms of life.Kim Baker. Sikeston, MO
