Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgement on themselves. (Romans 13:1,2 NIV) Forward Friday! Today marks 25 days until we vote for the continued Presidency of President Trump. People want to disconnect relationship between God and government, yet, Scripture throughout relates to both. In the OT- every king was noted as doing right in God’s eyes or […]
For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1:13, 14 NIV) Forward Friday! Wow! How amazing to move forward, with the thought of redemption- forgiveness of sins. For we have all fallen short of the glory of God, and as the saying goes…only quitters lose. Colossians 1 will be a wonderful chapter to read today. We learn about Epaphras, a dear fellow servant, a faithful minister in Christ. I love when Scripture identifies individuals, and a look […]
Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore, pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (Matthew 9:37,38 ESV) Forward Friday! Jesus preached the good news, healing the sick and diseased. Scripture states He saw the crowds. There is a difference being in a crowd and actually seeing the crowd. Being aware and using discernment to see hurts and people’s needs, like Jesus. Jesus was always a step ahead of His disciples…many times they lacked understanding, not so unlike many today. People perish due to […]
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord, a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:8,9 NIV) Forward Friday! There are times, I feel I have said all I can say. Societal Confusion has been unleashed, deception roaring, and people are deceived- completely brainwashed. Many are speaking, Jesus come quickly, yet, none of us know the time […]
The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are Spiritually discerned. (1 Corinthians 2:14 NIV) Motivating Monday! Good news! The Bible brings clarity to every situation on earth. To understand, we have to accept Jesus as our personal Savior, or we will be the person without The Spirit. When trying to explain Spiritual discernment, we cannot expect all individuals to understand. Do they find foolish? You bet- and foolishness is all that will follow as long as we […]

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
