  • Discernment

    Discernment

    This is a devotion that I wrote up. When we normally talk about discernment we are referring to it as one of the gifts of the Spirit, and it is not always thought of in that manner.  Discernment is talked about in different ways in the NIV where we are to discern, be discerned, discernment…

  • What hinders the flow of the Spirit?

    What hinders the flow of the Spirit?

    Have you ever asked yourself that question?  I know I have, and the answer is sin, disobedience to God, pride, bad thoughts and acting on those thoughts and I am sure the list goes on. Romans 8:38-39 tells us 38) For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39) nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  God loves us so much that he sent…

Matthew 14:26-32 says:  26 When the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost !” And they cried out in fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take courage, it is…

  • Mustard Seed Size Faith

    Mustard Seed Size Faith

    Have you ever wondered about the size of a mustard seed?  It is the smallest of seeds around.  Yet Jesus  uses it as an analogy for how we are to have our faith.  It may not seem like much, but if we believe enough we can produce great things. Matthew 17:20 says; And He said to…
