Victory in the Wilderness

Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time. Luke 4:13 Everything that has a beginning also has an ending. Nothing lasts forever. The enemy bombarded Jesus with everything he’s got but at the end of the day, he left him. This is very comforting. Friend, a time […]

Breakthrough in the Wilderness

And with whom was God angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies perished in the wilderness?  So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief. Hebrews 3:17, 19 The wilderness is filled with many casualties. If care is not taken, what is meant to […]

Comfort in the Wilderness

Jesus was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan.  He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him. Mark 1:13 Like taxes, one other thing that is very sure in life is adversity. No one is exempted from it. Your name will not save you from it; your fame will not either. […]

Ready, Set, … Wilderness!

Immediately the Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness. And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to Him. Mark 1:12-13 From time to time, we’re pushed into some circumstances that aren’t so pleasant. We find ourselves in some situations that we […]

The Why Question

But the children struggled together within her; and she said, “If it is so, why then am I this way?” So she went to inquire of the Lord. Genesis 25:22 There’s one word that can give a clue to so many things in life. It’s a question that if properly asked can lead to amazing […]

Know Yourself!

Then they said to him, “Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?” He said: “I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness.” John 1:22-23 Last week, we talked about being yourself. But before you can be yourself you must know […]

Be Yourself!

We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. 2 Corinthians 10:12 For more than a century now, government and security agencies all over the world have depended on using fingerprints to identify people. Many […]

Seeing Beyond

Jesus turned to Peter and said, ” Get away from me, Satan! You are a dangerous trap to me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, and not from God’s.”  Matt 16:23 NLT So there are at least 2 points of view: The human point of view and God’s. I’m sure […]

The Power of a Dream

Now when they saw Joseph afar off, even before he came near them, they conspired against him to kill him. Then they said to one another, “Look, this dreamer is coming! Come therefore, let us now kill him and cast him into some pit; and we shall say, ‘Some wild beast has devoured him.’ We […]

Deal with the Root

Jesus replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm (Matthew 8:26). Most of the time we watch things get out of hand and by the time we’re ready to act, it has gone too far, oftentimes beyond […]
