TODAY’S THE CROSS DEVOTIONAL Feeling Angry at God? ” “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil.” Ephesians 4:26-27 We never have any right to be angry with God, do we? After all, He is God. But the reality is sometimes we find ourselves angry at Him. Sometimes even extraordinarily so.…

Dear friend, In the past few days, it’s been hard to imagine I could ever write again. So much change, so much challenge, such uncomfortable circumstances. But the Lord is faithful to enable us to do what He desires us to do. And I am learning day by day that when I feel like I can’t do something, it’s the perfect opportunity to witness myself…

“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!” 1 John 3:1 Long ago I thought of killing myself by stepping in front of a New York City bus because I was so distraught and broken after seeing a man I had become involved with and purportedly fallen in love with walk down the street with his wife.…

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.” James 1:5-6 Being on the road for Jesus full-time…

Some relatively new friends of mine who are going through multiple trials all at once contacted me from the homeless shelter where they recently moved to give me an update on how things stand. My heart hurts for all they are going through, but at the same time my heart rejoices. For they are strong believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, their faith is in…

The Greatest Sorrow of All… “Now a certain ruler asked Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘Do not bear false witness,’‘Honor your father and your…

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.” Mt. 5:6 There is no greater tragedy to me when it comes to people who say they believe that Jesus Christ is Lord than how many people I meet who fall into these categories: * They call Jesus Lord but don’t read the Bible and live their lives like He’s Lord with their hearts…

Sometimes harder than other times. The idea of sacrifice usually goes along with giving up something or someone we want, doesn’t it? Something material, our time, our heart, a relationship,…

Dear friend, The best refreshing in life doesn’t come from a good night’s sleep or a wonderful far-away vacation or a trip to the spa or anything of this world at all.

MISSING THIS ARMOR? … “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts…

Dear friend, A friend encouraging me this morning sent me a Bible verse and then this quote from long-ago missionary David Brainerd: “I cared not where or how I lived, or what hardships I went through, so that I could but gain souls to Christ.” Her message to me was so short. So simple. So sweet. One Bible verse. The words of someone from long…

The Hotel Fire Alarm Story  “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season…” 2 Tim 4:1 “Let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, And declare His works with rejoicing.” Psalm 107:22 I needed sleep like you wouldn’t believe. So exhausted. So disoriented at first when I finally fell into a deep, deep sleep only to be woken by an unbelievably loud and relentless hotel fire alarm. Scramble, scramble.…

Holding God at a Distance “They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him, And saved him out of all his troubles.

Dear friend, Believe it or not, Mondays are always the hardest day of the week for me. It’s not that I don’t want to get back to work. I LOVE MY WORK because it’s FOR THE LORD. It’s that the devil comes at me so exceedingly hard virtually every Monday without fail to get me to quit before I get started into the week forward…

I will go in the strength of the Lord God; I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only. O God, You have taught me from my youth; And to this day I declare Your wondrous works. Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, do not forsake me,…

“So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” Romans 8:8 Isn’t it true when we love someone to no end, that we want to express our love to that person?

“Serve the Lord with gladness;” Psalm 100:2 One day I made the mistake once again of falling into an old temptation. I took on more than God had given me and became quickly very overwhelmed. I drove a long distance and took a great deal of time picking up an enormous amount of free bread that is the bulk of my ministry’s paralyzed dog Mr. Simeon’s special…

“Thank you God that nothing comes easy,” I told the Lord not long ago. “I have to rely on you for everything.” If you know me, you know I’m totally transparent. So here’s the truth.
