Empowered for Triumph

Many people have low self esteem. I was once one of the many that would fall into that category. Words are powerful, having both the power to bring life or to bring death (Proverbs 18:21). From the very beginning, God spoke things into existence (Genesis 1). We are created in His image so we have … Continue reading Empowered for Triumph

Our Eternal Home

“Lord, You have always been our eternal home, our hiding place from generation to generation” (Psalm 90:1 TPT). The Psalmist makes this declaration, yet it’s not something we always live out. We may know that as believers in Jesus, as children of God, that we are held in the safety of His hands (John 10:28). … Continue reading Our Eternal Home

Giver of Strength

Read Psalm 86. Today’s verse is Psalm 86:16: “Bring me to Your grace-fountain so that Your strength becomes mine. Be my hero and come rescue Your servant once again!” (TPT).  Remember, we are cursed when we rely on human strength. Jeremiah 17:5 says, “This is what the LORD says: ‘Cursed are those who put their … Continue reading Giver of Strength

Nurturing Love

Read Psalm 86. Today, we will be looking at God’s nurturing love (Psalm 86:15). The beginning of today’s verse describes God with words translated as merciful, full of compassion, gracious, tender, and kind.

You rescued me from the deepest place of darkness, and You have delivered me from a certain death” (TPT).  The Bible speaks … Continue reading Deliverer from Death

Greatness of God

Read Psalm 86. The prayer I said before eating as a child began: “God is good. God is great.” God is great. Psalm 86:10b says, “What greatness belongs to You” (TPT). Today, we will look at the greatness of God. God is great. He is incomprehensible. We cannot fully know Him. Psalm 139:6 says, “Such … Continue reading Greatness of God

Wonders of God

Read Psalm 86. Today, we will focus on how our great God does wondrous things. The word “pala” means that something is extraordinary or surpassing. When we consider the wonders, typically we we think about the parting of bodies of water, the feeding of multitudes, the ground opening up and swallowing Korah, the manna, the … Continue reading Wonders of God

An Empty Hope

The Psalmist states in today’s verse that trusting in a person is worthless or useless; the Psalmist declares a person cannot rescue another. This thinking is contrary to what the world exclaims. I remember growing up with the hope of being rescued. Remember the stories of a knight on a white horse? Today, our entertainment … Continue reading An Empty Hope
