And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire–and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands.  (Revelation 15:2) In several places throughout Scripture, heaven is described and images of […]

Jesus is completely in control

Jesus Christ [is] the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth.  (Revelation 1:5) The world is run by rulers of all sorts and kinds. Some are elected representatives, and others, self-appointed tyrants.  Some lead by example and others rule by force and fear.  Some act in ways that honor […]

God’s promise to you is peace

Grace, mercy and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Father’s Son, in truth and love.  (2 John 1:3) Sometimes the greatest truths of God are also the simplest.  Sometimes the deepest revelations don’t come from more books, but more belief. Do you believe God has grace for you? […]

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.  (James 1:5) We live in a complicated world.  So many decisions, so many problems, so many responsibilities come to fill our minds, and it can sometimes be so hard to make sense of […]

God gives you discipline to bring you peace

It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline?

So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from His.  (Hebrews 4:9-10) Did God get tired and need a break after His work of creation?  Of course not.  He rested to set an example for us. […]

God’s Hope for Your Heart from Psalm 79 GOD SAVES YOU FOR HIS GLORY Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name; deliver us, and atone for our sins, for Your name’s sake!  (Psalm 79:9-10) There is an order to all creation, a cosmic balance in the physical universe that was […]

When you focus on Jesus, He steadies your heart

God’s Hope for Your Heart from Psalm 75 WHEN YOU FOCUS ON JESUS, HE STEADIES YOUR HEART When the earth totters, and all its inhabitants, it is I who keep steady its pillars.  (Psalm 75:3) Our world is full of instability.  From economies in turmoil to civil unrest, discord in the workplace and division at home, […]

Jesus can truly reconcile

God’s Hope for Your Heart from Colossians 4 JESUS CAN TRULY RECONCILE Aristarchus my fellow prisoner greets you, and Mark the cousin of Barnabas (concerning whom you have received instructions—if he comes to you, welcome him.)  (Colossians 4:10) Paul had not been a fan of this Mark fellow.  He had allowed the young man to accompany […]
