Daily Inspiration-Are You In and Of the World?

Keep your mind focused on eternal things of lasting value.  This life is but a vapor. Material things have no long term worth.

Following the “worldly crowd” to “fit in,” whether in or out of church, does not set you apart for Kingdom purpose.  Set your priorities on things above.

Let Jesus be your pattern to live by in this season.  Follow Him daily and stay ever close in relationship with Him to hear His direction “for such a time as this!’’  If Jesus Christ is truly Lord of your life you have been set apart.  Live accordingly.

Be in

Daily Inspiration-Feeling Over the Edge?

Do you ever feel that you cannot take one more thing?  Do you find yourself at the tipping point between OK and over the edge?  You are not alone.  Everyone at some time experiences this.   The key is do not park there and do not live there.

Living in a hyper-vigilant state is more and more prevalent today.  Many live with chronic health conditions, PTSD, financial challenges, relationship challenges, etc.  Whatever your particular challenge may be, never lose hope.

1)  God can heal and restore.

2) God can turn around for good what was meant for harm.

  3) God hears

Daily Inspiration-On Whose Understanding Do You Lean?

How often do you lean on your own understanding of a given situation in your life?  You think you see all the facts, all the players and ultimately the best solution.  We only see in part.   Actually, we see only a very, very small part.

If you truly follow Jesus Christ as the Lord of your life you will learn along the way that to wait for His direction is always the best course of action to take.  At times, that course of “action” means seemingly no “action.”

It can be very frustrating in the natural to wait as we

Daily Inspiration-Do Not Be Deceived!

So many today are “hearing from God.”  What they purport to hear ranges from inconsequential things to major life changes.  If you are hearing make sure it is God.  There is another who speaks also and delights in leading God’s children in the wrong direction.

First of all, make sure what you are being told lines up with Scripture and the true nature of God.  God would not tell you to do something or go somewhere that did not line up with His Word and His character.

Second, test the S(s)pirit you are hearing.  Ask if it is the Spirit

‘Pray the States!’

In Esther’s Warriors Ministry, we began in 2012 ‘praying the states’ for healing for our Nation.   Queen Esther went before the king to intercede for her people.    We go before the King to intercede for our Nation ‘for such a time as this’ (Esther 4:14).  We pray for each state in the order of admission to the Union and will continue.  Our Nation more than ever needs consistent, diligent prayer cover state by state.

Daily Inspiration-The Journey of the Magi Toward the Epiphany

The Journey of the Magi

Toward the Epiphany

In reading Daily Guideposts, 2017, I came across a devotional written by Rick Hamlin.  He was sharing about his family tradition of putting up a crèche.  His son, who “…was always a stickler for detail,” set the family tradition so that the wise men did not get put in the manger until January 6, the Epiphany, when they actually visited the Christ child.  Until that time the wise men were placed on a distant table facing the crèche to represent their journey.  In addition, the baby was not placed in the manger

A New Year…2018!

Let God Make Your New Year

New!

Here we are once again on the precipice of a new year!  As 2017 draws to a close what do you envision for your 2018?  This past year may have been quite wonderful for you.  Perhaps it was most challenging.

It is easy to focus on the negative in life.  So much negativity floods the news media daily.  You are bombarded with continuous updates of frightening happenings around the world.  This endless barrage of negative can cast a dark shadow on your life if you are not careful.  Despite whatever took place look
