Living the Christian Life

Romans 12 is the 12th chapter of the Epistle to the Romans in the New Testament, written by Paul the Apostle. In simple terms, it serves as a guidebook to living the Christian life. It is the foundation for Christian living. It covers how we should be viewing ourselves and presenting ourselves to God. ItContinue reading “Living the Christian Life”

Where Does My Help Come From?

Whenever I’m suffering from any trials or tribulations, I turn to the Lord. If I’m feeling worried or anxious, I turn to the Lord. When sadness or depression hits me, I turn to the Lord. If I need comfort or reassurance, I turn to the Lord. When people hurt me, I turn to the Lord.Continue reading “Where Does My Help Come From?”

The Secret Place of the Lord

Psalm 91 is right up there in my top favorite Psalms. The more you read it the better it gets. Thinking about dwelling in the secret place of the Lord just touches my heart and my soul so deeply. I am so incredibly grateful for the relationship that I have with Him. There is noContinue reading “The Secret Place of the Lord”

Prayer for Strength in the Lord

The First Letter of Peter is addressed to Christians who are being persecuted.

Ephesians‬ ‭3:14-21‬ is a beautiful prayer written in a letter by Paul the Apostle to the Christians of Ephesus.

The Lord is My Shepherd

I will begin by saying that I read the Psalms very often. I have read through all 150 of them in order, and now I just jump around and reread my favorites all the time. There is no right or wrong way to read the Psalms. Just allow the Holy Spirit to guide you. IContinue reading “The Lord is My Shepherd”

God is With You

When I say that God is with you, I mean it in the literal sense. When you put your faith in Jesus Christ, His Spirit actually dwells inside of you. Your old life is crucified and a new one is born. You are made new with Him. And in turn, you should be living yourContinue reading “God is With You”

Seek the Lord

The word seek can be defined as an attempt to find something. If you are seeking something, you are searching for it. And what is better to search for than the Lord? When you seek the Lord, it means that you are seeking His presence. It is so much more than just reading your BibleContinue reading “Seek the Lord”

Trust in the Lord’s Timing

Having faith in the Lord means also having faith in His timing. You need to trust His way of doing things. He already has His own plan for your life, and you must never grow weary or impatient with that. Waiting on the Lord will strengthen your faith in Him. He knows exactly what HeContinue reading “Trust in the Lord’s Timing”

The Light of the Lord

I named my blog My Light for My Lord based on Matthew 5:16: “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” It is one of my favorite verses, as it is one of the first verses ever spoken to me by the HolyContinue reading “The Light of the Lord”

Spiritual Warfare

Let me just start by saying that there is so much power in the name of Jesus. And nothing in this world can separate us from that. Romans‬ ‭8:38-39‬ says: “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height norContinue reading “Spiritual Warfare”

Start Your Day With God

“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations‬ ‭3:22-23‬ ‭ It is a wonderful thing to know that the Lord’s compassions will literally never fail us, and that His mercies are new every single morning. There is no greater promiseContinue reading “Start Your Day With God”

Finding Your Identity in Christ

If I am going to be completely honest here, I have lived a lot of my life feeling unworthy, unloved, and just plain inadequate. I could never really explain why I felt that way, until I met Jesus. Suddenly the old me died and I was born again in Him. I was made new. IContinue reading “Finding Your Identity in Christ”

Meditating on the Word of God

“When you think about a problem over and over in your mind, that’s called worry. When you think about God’s Word over and over in your mind, that’s meditation. If you know how to worry, you already know how to meditate!” Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here For? ThatContinue reading “Meditating on the Word of God”

Trust God Over Man

This can be somewhat of a tough subject to write about, because it’s a pretty bold statement to say that we shouldn’t trust people. But the idea is that we shouldn’t trust people over God. We shouldn’t trust the things of this world over the things of His kingdom. We have to look at itContinue reading “Trust God Over Man”

Pray Continually

Talking to God is a beautiful thing, and the more you do it the closer you will get to Him. Prayer should be an integral part of your day. I always start and end my day with prayer, along with lifting up many little prayers throughout the day. The Bible even tells us that weContinue reading “Pray Continually”

The Lord’s Peace

The word peace is defined in a few different ways according to dictionaries. It is a state of tranquility or quiet, freedom from disturbance, and the absence of conflict or war. However, the biblical definition of peace means something different. It points to a presence that this world does not have. It is ultimately aContinue reading “The Lord’s Peace”

Spiritual Hunger

The Bible is full of metaphors, and perhaps the greatest one of them all is this: “And Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.’” John‬ ‭6:35 This is definitely one of my favorite verses. JesusContinue reading “Spiritual Hunger”

What it Means to Fear the Lord

When I first heard the phrase “fear the Lord” in the earlier days of embracing my Christianity, I was somewhat taken back by it. When you fear something, it generally means that it’s scary or that it poses a danger to you. And I was thinking to myself, God is not scary. God is notContinue reading “What it Means to Fear the Lord”
