Living Life and Life Givers - Firm Foundation Inspiration Minute for November 30, 2022

2 TIMOTHY 1:5, I’m reminded of your authentic faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice. I’m sure that this faith is also inside you. In this second letter to Timothy, the Apostle Paul addressed him in a very personal way. Paul reflected on Timothy's faith in God. In doing so he identified the legacy of faith proceeding from both his grandmother and mother. He even knew their names, Lois and Eunice. On November 29, I celebrated another birthday. While I saw...

Giving Thanks is a Foundation - Firm Foundation Inspiration Minute for November 23, 2022

We know the thanksgiving holiday in the USA is Thursday, November 23, but we know that we give thanks to God every day. This is one of the few holidays in which is appropriate practice and celebrate every day. Thanksgiving is foundational. One of my sayings is this: "Every good thing happens on a Firm Foundation." David wrote in psalm 100:4, "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise. Be thankful to him and bless his name." Giving thanks positions your heart,...


Two Things That Change Your Life | Firm Foundation inspiration Minute for November 16, 2022

Psalm 19:14, Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer. We are living in a day of outrageous words and actions. Whatever person does begins with meditations of his heart, followed by words spoken and actions taken. David gave a guideline to a better life and a better world. His prayer to God, and his determination, was that the meditations (or thoughts) of his heart would be acceptable to God. He also asked...


Be Empowered. Empower Others. | Firm Foundation inspiration Minute for November 9, 2022

Acts 10:38, How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. The scripture reread describes how God and powered Jesus to do good and heal people who were oppressed. The root of the word “empower” is “power” which is: ability to do or act; capability of doing or accomplishing something. Power has to be gained, learned, imparted, or received from God and others. This is the...

The Greatest Motivator In Your Life | Firm Foundation inspiration Minute for November 2, 2022

We're living in a day where motivations are moving people to do very good and very poorly. What we are seeing is that a persons motivation is a culmination of their lifestyle, their upbringing, and most of all their belief system. Motivations are not something that we can control if we've not already shaped our motivations towards godly thoughts and actions. As Jesus said, a tree is known by his fruit. So we need to pay attention to the kinds of trees that we are, because the fruit, the...

Jeremiah 32:26, Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: 27 “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me? In this life, we have all come to learn that there are many hard things that we must endure. Someone observed that the older you get the greater the challenges, and I have found this to be true. This does not only apply to personal challenges, but the challenge of serving and caring for others, including our parents as well as other family members as they age....

God is For You...Like a Flood!

Glad to be back after a few weeks off preparing to celebrate our milestone 40th Pastoral and Church anniversary at New Covenant Church, serving God's people, as well as enjoying some vacation time in Europe with my wife Patricia. I know that many of my followers enjoy my photography, so on the blog I've posted some photos and video clips that you might enjoy. With all the pressures and challenges of life, it is essential and comforting to know God is for us. This is especially true when we...

ROMANS ROAD 21-Day Devotional | Day 21 - ”Cancelling Complacency”

Romans 13:11 And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. 12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. One of the great dangers for Christians is complacency. Complacency is defined as: “A feeling of contentment or self-satisfaction, especially when coupled with an unawareness of a need” Paul offers a powerful...


ROMANS ROAD 21-Day Devotional | Day 20 - ”Basic Instructions”

Romans 12:9, Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. 10 Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; 11 not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; 12 rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; 13 distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.

ROMANS ROAD 21-Day Devotional | Day 19 - ” All Things Work Together for Good”

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

ROMANS ROAD 21-Day Devotional | Day 18 — “ Know that God Knows All”

Romans 11:34, “For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor?” 35 “Or who has first given to Him And it shall be repaid to him?” 36 For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen. I am amazed and amused at how people seem to think they can always speak for God or seem to convey that they understand Him more than others. It is certainly true that we can learn of the Lord and share His word with others, but no one person knows...


ROMANS ROAD 21-Day Devotional | Day 17 — “How to Think About Yourself”

Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. 4 For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function. We are never in a position where we need to be conceited, brag, or try to “show off” to impress others. You are already exactly the person that God had in mind! In a world where people...


ROMANS ROAD 21-Day Devotional | Day 16 — “How Faith Comes”

Romans 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?”17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Continuing from the previous lesson, we learn from this text that faith can only come from the Word of God. Just as people can only earn college degrees from learning the content during college classes, God’s “content” is learned from the Bible and through people who preach/teach the word. People who don’t hear or take...
