“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the chords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?” (Isaiah 58:6 NIV) Life principles Isaiah 58 is a must read chapter. I encourage you to study this chapter today. Life principles understood on fasting and keeping the Sabbath day holy lead to incredible blessings for our lives. I marvel with the fact if we would give up food (I believe a true fast is the sacrifice of food), God moves to loose the chains of injustice, untie […]
“Oh unbelieving generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring me the boy.” “If you can?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for him who believes.” (Mark 9:19, 23 NIV) A Father believes It is Motivating Monday! Do you have your running shoes on? This message burning within me has me ready to run! Jesus is matter of fact. He walks upon his disciples surrounded by a large group with teachers of the law arguing with them. A father, who believes, is in dire need for his son’s healing goes […]
None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him.” (1 Corinthians 2: 8,9 NIV) Christ crucified Rulers did not understand then, nor do we have rulers today who understand. Many continue to crucify Christ over and over. God’s love for the world, we cannot fathom. God’s will gave His one and only son to die on the cross. Why? As the […]
The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? “I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve.” (Jeremiah 17:9,10 NIV) Sin exalted? Yesterday, after reading a news article, I hardly believed how sin was exalted in such a way. I petitioned the Lord, “How possibly have we reached this point in our society?” Jesus, in His soft whisper, “Vicki, it is because the heart is deceitful.” This is not hard to understand. The Bible is not complicated. God’s commands […]
All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3: 16,17 NIV) A new creation Once we ask Jesus to be our Lord and Savior, we are a new creation. All of the old is gone and the new as come. We find ourselves suited up for a race. One may feel uncertain yet anxious and excited all at one time. We have doubt removed, opened for intake of new information. Where do we go from here? 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
