"Who Lord?" Video Devotion

"Who Lord" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 89, verses 5 through 10. Who Lord is like unto Thee? What a magnificent psalm of praise to our great God and King! Even the heavens praise the wonders of God, but does man? How does man miss the obvious? Even creation cries out the wonders of God; even the creatures know and worship Him!



God Bless You,

"Thy Faithfulness" Video Devotion

"Thy Faithfulness" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 89, verses 1 through 4. Psalm 89 is a triumphant psalm for the believer. In Christ, we, too, will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever, and make known His faithfulness to all generations. Think of it! God, who created the world and all of the heavenly hosts has made a covenant with us. This same God will surround us, care for us, keep us, and bring us safely into His arms for all eternity. It is more that we can possibly comprehend!




God Bless You,

"O Lord" Video Devotion

"O Lord" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 88, verses 10 through 18.  There are times in every Christian's life when we seem to be overcome with life, and God seems to be far removed from us. Such appeared to be the case for the writer of Psalm 88, but it is noteworthy that, no matter how discouraged he became, he never ceased to cry out to God for help. "But unto thee have I cried, O LORD; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent thee. Let us then, especially when life seems to overflow with troubles, seek our help, peace, and joy from the Lord. Only in Him will we find true joy and peace, not just in this life, but for all eternity!



God Bless You,
Linda

"Troubled Soul" Video Devotion

"Troubled Soul" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 88, verses 3 through 9. This poor man was so grievously ill that he was lying at death's door and had lost that comfortable presence of God; it seemed to him that he had been shut up and forgotten by God. It is good that this Psalm is included in God's Word, for this is not so very unusual of an experience for a Christian. All of us, no matter how firm our faith in the Lord, can easily fall into great times of trouble so that it seems that even God has abandoned us. It is good to remember that we cannot hold on to our own faith; in our frailty we could not save ourselves, and neither can we keep ourselves saved. Like this poor suffering saint, we can easily begin to suspect that God has totally forgotten and deserted us, so that we, too, experience a grieving, troubled soul.




God Bless You,
Linda

"God of My Salvation" Video Devotion

"God of My Salvation" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 88, verses 1 and 2. The God of my salvation has a love like no man has ever known; He was willing to sacrifice His Son for a people who are so completely unworthy.




God Bless You,
Linda

"All My Springs Are In Thee" Video Devotion

"All My Springs Are in Thee" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 87, verse 7.  The idea the psalmist is conveying is that the city will be so filled with happiness and joy that continual singing will be heard in the city, especially in the temple. Finally, the great peace, joy, and happiness, that come from the Lord are realized as being the greatest joy known on earth. All other joys and pleasures found on earth will pale in comparison.




God Bless You,

"Born In Zion" Video Devotion

"Born in Zion" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 87, verses 4 through 6.  To what was the Psalmist referring when he said "This man was born in Zion."? In Psalm 87, Zion is the heavenly city; only true believers are allowed to be residents of Zion. In other words, this Psalm is telling of a time when God's people will not only be those of Jewish descent, but will include people from all over the world, even Babylon, Philistia, Tyre, and Ethiopia. What a mighty God we serve. Nations have risen and fallen, but none have lived, moved, or had their being apart from the mighty hand of God. He has established this world, overcome the stench of sin, and will gloriously bring His children to Him at the end of time.




God Bless You,

"Glorious Things Are Spoken" Video Devotion

"Glorious Things Are Spoken" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 87, verses 1 through 3. Encouraging the people to return to their First Love, the psalmist is speaking of a future time when the Lord will reign from the gates of Zion. The city of Zion, more beautiful than any city they had ever known, even more beautiful than they could hardly imagine, would rise in splendor and majesty at the foot of the holy mountains. All peoples of the earth would exclaim over its remarkable state, for, indeed, the blessing of God would be upon the city.




God Bless You,

"Help and Comfort" Video Devotion

"Help and Comfort" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 86, verses 16 and 17. Where do we go for help and comfort? David, the writer of Psalm 86, understood that the only place to go for help and comfort is the Lord. To go to any other would only give a temporary salve, if that, but the comfort of the Lord is a deep balm to our souls.




God Bless You,
Linda

"But Thou" Video Devotion

"But Thou" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 86, verses 14 and 15. The next time you are overcome with the burdens of this life, I encourage you to remember these two words, "But God!" Before this life overwhelms you with its trials and burdens, pray that God will fill you with His sweetness and joy as you contemplate our great and wondrous God. He is all truth, purity, loveliness, joy, and peace, and He is our Father.




God Bless You,
Linda

"Thy Way" Video Devotion

"Thy Way" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 86, verses 11 through 13.  The first six words of Psalm 86, verse 11, are of necessity, the motto for every true child of God. "Teach me thy way, O LORD." For the time being, we are trapped in a world that hates God, but we must patiently wait for that time when we will be released from the bands of this earth that hold us fast. While here, let us fill our hearts and minds with the knowledge of the Lord, and pray that God will use us to faithfully proclaim His Word to those who have not come to Him.




God Bless You,
Linda

Saturday, December 20, 2014

"None Like Thee" Video Devotion

"None Like Thee" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 86, verses 8 through 10. As we meditate upon God's wondrous works, we must agree with the psalmist, David, "O Lord, there is none like Thee!" We can do nothing but bow before God and say, "Thou art great, and doest wondrous things; thou art God alone."




God Bless You,
Linda

Friday, December 19, 2014

"No Doubt" Video Devotion

"No Doubt" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 86, verses 6 and 7.  Do you hear any doubt in David's words in Psalm 86? No, there is no doubt in his mind. He does not say, "In the day of my trouble you may answer me." He says, "In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me." This is the God we serve. He is available 24/7, and is ready to hear, and ready to answer, the pleas of help from His children.




God Bless You,
Linda

"Rejoice the Soul" Video Devotion

"Rejoice the Soul" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 86, verses 3 through 5. Don't you love that phrase, "Rejoice the soul."? Sometimes, after reading the daily headlines, there does not seem to be much to rejoice about. Countries in the Mid East are gearing up for what looks to be another major conflict. Actually, things do not seem to be all that different, militarily speaking, from the time that David wrote Psalm 86.  We cannot begin to plumb the depth of the riches of God--"for of Him, and through Him, and to Him are all things: to whom be glory for ever."  I cannot think of a better verse to rejoice the soul.




God Bless You,
Linda

"I Am Holy" Video Devotion

"I Am Holy" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 86, verses 1 and 2. In this beautiful prayer, David makes a rather interesting statement. He said, "I am holy." What does that mean? What made him holy? Are all Christians holy? God, who has called us is holy. He is the root spoken of in Romans 11. The branches are all of the children of God. In other words, all Christians are holy. David was holy because he was a believer.




God Bless You,

"Mercy, Truth, Righteousness, and Peace" Video Devotion

"Mercy, Truth, Righteousness, and Peace" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 85, verses 10 through 13. Whenever we see the words, mercy, truth, righteousness, and peace, linked together, we understand that we are speaking of God, for none of these attributes belong to us apart from God! Our world is steeped in unrighteousness and our earth is sadly affected by the effects of sin. However, as the psalmist so beautifully pointed out, all is not lost for our sin-infested land.




God Bless You,
Linda

Monday, December 15, 2014

"All Good" Video Devotion

"All Good" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 85, verses 8 and 9. We hear this phrase spoken,  "It's all good." However, is it? After reading the verses shown above from Psalm 85, we can certainly say, "It's all good!"  In reflecting upon this, the psalmist urges the Lord's people not to turn again to folly, but rather to hear what the Lord speaks, and turn back to Him. Then, God's salvation will be near to them and glory may again dwell in their land. The next time you hear the phrase, "It's all good," I encourage you to think about whether it really is all good or not. For the nation, and for the person, who fears God, it is, indeed, all good!




God Bless You,
Linda

"Turn Us" Video Devotion

"Turn Us" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 85, verses 4 through 7. Rightly, the psalmist cried out to God, "Turn Us!" The psalmist understood that it is our turning away from God, our first love, which often brings calamities upon us. God, in His great love toward us, uses the circumstances of this life to mold us and shape us until we become more and more conformed to His righteous image. How, then, are we to properly view times of trouble? God uses times of trouble to school His dear children. It is right and proper for us to seek God's help, for He alone has the ability to remove the troubles from us.




God Bless You,
Linda

Saturday, December 13, 2014

"None Beside Thee" Video Devotion

"None beside Thee" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 85, verses 1 through 3. Five times in these few short verses, the psalmist uses the word, "Thou," and rightly so, for there is none other name, in heaven or on earth, whereby we must be saved. That is the amazing thing about God. Who could even imagine such love for His creation that He would send His only Son to become a lowly creature, yet without sin, that He might save a people for Himself?




God Bless You,
Linda

Friday, December 12, 2014

"Better Than Life" Video Devotion

"Better Than Life" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 84, verses 10 through 12. As I was reading through verses 10 through 12 of Psalm 84, the thought came to my mind, "These words are better than life!"  We, even as Christians, are often so carried away with the pleasures of this world, that we have forgotten the pure joy of meditating upon God's Word. Sadly, we are willing to content ourselves with carnal pleasures of this world at the expense of the beauty, holiness, and peace of meditating upon God's Word.




God Bless You,
Linda

"Power of Prayer" Video Devotion

"Power of Prayer" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 84, verses 8 and 9. The psalmist, when writing this psalm understood the power of prayer, but do we?  We speak of the power of prayer, but I do believe that if we truly understood it's power, we would constantly be on our knees before our mighty God, who saves us, keeps us, and answers our prayers.




God Bless You,
Linda

"Heart for God" Video Devotion

"Heart for God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 84, verses 5 through 7. In our lives we will often pass through the valley of tears, and when trying to do so in our own strength will often fail. However, as we learn to lean and trust in God our Father, seeking His help, we are able to look back and see that God's hand has led us through. We are truly pilgrims traveling through a world that is not our home, but what we lack in comfort and peace during this life will soon be forgotten when we reach the ports of heaven.




God Bless You,
Linda

"In God's Presence" Video Devotion

"In God's Presence" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 84, verses 1 through 4. One does not always appreciate the ability to worship God regularly in a house of worship until one is denied the pleasure. Though in our times of great advancement, one hardly needs to be denied the privilege of worshiping God on the Sabbath, as provision is made over the air waves, be it radio, television, or internet, it is still not the same as being in God's house of worship on His holy day. Unfortunately, it is our very nature to take such privileges for granted.




God Bless You,

"Jehovah Most High" Video Devotion

"Jehovah, Most High" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 83, verses 13 through 18. We live in a time when few of the nations of the world proclaim to serve any deity, much less Jehovah, Most High. Yet that was not true of the time during which Asaph lived when he wrote Psalm 83. Each nation had their own god or set of gods who ruled over them. When a nation conquered an enemy, it was thought that their god or gods showed himself or herself to be more powerful than the god of that particular nation. As we search our hearts and minds, may we come to the conclusion that Jehovah, Most High, is not only most high over all the earth, but He is most high in our hearts, our minds and our lives as well.




God Bless You,

"Call of God" Video Devotions

"Call of God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 90, verses 1 through 3. In this beautiful psalm by Moses, we, the children of men, are urged to respond to the call of God. While we are so engrossed in the affairs of this life, God is calling us to return to Him.  God has a plan for each and every one of His children. No matter what our age or abilities may be, as long as we are alive, He has a plan for us. Let us, then, respond to the call of God, for in our service to Him we will find peace, joy, happiness, and contentment. These are, indeed, characteristics we cannot gain by immersing ourselves in the cares of this world, but are, rather, gifts from God.




God Bless You,
Linda

"Remember" Video Devotion

"Remember" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 83, verses 9 through 12. It is not just in fiction stories that the author waits until the very last moment when all hope is gone to bring a victory to his main characters. The Psalmist is calling to God, His only hope to bring aid to His people like He did with Gideon and Jabin. He is calling his readers to remember God's faithfulness in the past.




God Bless You,
Linda

"Hopeless" Video Devotion

"Hopeless" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 83, verses 5 through 8. It was hopeless! What could one small nation do against the seemingly numberless armies of her enemies. This was not the first time, and certainly would not be the last time that the people of God had found themselves in such a hopeless situation. We are an independent people, and would hardly ever come to God for help unless we have been put in a situation where no help can be found. We seem to turn to God as our last resort, rather than come to Him immediately. When life seems to be hopeless, remember, we, as God's children, are the apple of His eye. How amazing is that?




God Bless You,
Linda

"Cut Off Israel" Video Devotion

"Cut Off Israel" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 83, verses 1 through 4. For over 2000 years the enemies of Israel have wanted to completely cut off Israel, and have come close to doing so. But, God, has promised to save a remnant of the nation from total annihilation. Just as God answered the prayers of His people in the days of Asaph, so will He answer the prayers of His people today. Though nations may set themselves up to cut off Israel, God will again intervene.




God Bless You,
Linda

Thursday, December 04, 2014

"Gods among Men" Video Devotion

"Gods among Men" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 82, verses 5 through 8. God, in Psalm 82, speaks to the rulers among men, or gods, who for a season have been raised above other men. Perhaps they have received this honor through their wealth, popularity, or political status, or perhaps they have been born into a ruling class. Though God calls them into account for their harsh treatment of their fellow man, sadly they do not change their ways, but continue to walk in darkness.




God Bless You,
Linda

"God Stands" Video Devotion

"God Stands" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 82, verses 1 through 4.  Picture a great meeting of all the gods of the nations and all the rulers of the world from the beginning to the end of time. Only one stands. Who may that be? You already know the answer: God stands! He gazes upon all those gathered before Him and challenges them with these words  "How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked?"




God Bless You,
Linda

Tuesday, December 02, 2014

"Resisting God" Video Devotion

"Resisting God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 81, verses 11 through 16. The important thing to note in these verses from Psalm 81 is that God is speaking to His own people. It is one thing for the ungodly to be found resisting God, but God is addressing His own people. Unfortunately, all to often we find ourselves in the same situation. When we find ourselves resisting God, it is time for us to fall before Him and seek forgiveness, as well as help to say, "Thy will be done, O Lord, my Rock and our Redeemer!"




God Bless You,
Linda

Monday, December 01, 2014

"Testimony of God" Video Devotion

"Testimony of God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 81, verses 8 through 10. Does God speak to us? Yes! The most obvious way God speaks to us is through His Word, not in complex terminology that is difficult to understand, but plainly. Neither are His commandments sparse, but are scattered throughout His entire Word.  How rich we are in Christ, and how poor we are without Him. By the grace of God, ask Him to help you place Him above all else so that you may personally realize the testimony of God in your own life!




God Bless You,
Linda

"Delivered, Answered, Proved" Video Devotion

"Delivered, Answered, Proved" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 81, verses 6 and 7. Rescued from the famine and brought safely to Egypt, under the care of Joseph, the nation of Israel thrived, so much so, that they became a threat to the rulers of Egypt who had long forgotten Joseph or the good that he had done for their country. God raised up Moses from among them who eventually brought them out of the land of Egypt, and delivered them from the cruel hand of Pharaoh.




God Bless You,

"New Moon Festival" Video Devotion

"New Moon Festival" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 81, verses 3 through 5. To what is the writer of Psalm 81 referring when he said, "Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day"? When you picture in your mind the number of Israelites, you begin to realize the practicality of using trumpets for communication. When the trumpets sounded the alarm, the men immediately prepared for battle. When the trumpets sounded without the alarm, the people knew they were being called to come before God.




God Bless You,
Linda

Friday, November 28, 2014

"Music or Noise" Video Devotion

"Music or Noise" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 81, verses 1 and 2. There is nothing that seems to define a culture or an age more than music. Indeed, music is a rather loose term at times; some would ask whether certain forms of music are music or noise! No matter who we are, whether great or small, we are God's creation, and are thus to give all praise and glory to Him. Even the creatures, who are but dumb brute beasts, give glory to God, their Creator. So whether you produce beautiful music or noise, may it be done for the honor and glory of God, who alone is worthy of our praise.




God Bless You,
Linda

"Broken Hedges" Video Devotions

"Broken Hedges" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 80, verses 8 through 19. They were, indeed, a chosen people. Transplanted to Egypt during years of famine, they grew into a strong vine. From Egypt God moved them to their new home where they took root and filled the land. As long as they remained faithful, God put a hedge of protection around them. God continually warned them, and yet, when He removed His arm of protection, they seemed to be surprised by the broken hedges. Was there no help for them apart from God? No!




God Bless You,
Linda

"It Will Be Worth It All" Video Devotions

"It Will Be Worth It All" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 80, verses 4 through 7. Is it worth it? When all of life seems to be sorrows and tears for us, but seems to be sunshine and blessings for others, is it worth it? If we spend our entire life poor and needy while others seem to skate through on beds of ease, is it worth it? No matter what this life brings, let us remember, it will be worth it all, when we see Jesus!




God Bless You,

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

"We Shall Be Saved" Video Devotions

"We Shall Be Saved" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 80, verses 1 through 3. Psalm 80, which is actually a continuation of Psalm 79, is divided into three sections, all of which end with, "we shall be saved." The writer correctly understands that the only salvation which will come to his people will be from the hand of God, the Shepherd of Israel. Asaph's God is the same God we worship today; just as He worked wondrously on behalf of His people then, so does He work among His people today.




God Bless You,
Linda

Monday, November 24, 2014

"We Thy People" Video Devotions

"We Thy People" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 79, verses 11 through 13.  As Christians, we are the sheep of Christ's pasture. Though we may be overcome with troubles on all sides, it is not our duty to unravel our difficulties, but rather it is God, our Chief Shepherd who will bring us through the dark valleys and into His eternal habitation where we will live forever! How are we to respond to God's wondrous care? We Thy people will give thanks forever; to Him we will show forth praise, not only now, but in the generations to come.




God Bless You,
Linda

Sunday, November 23, 2014

"You Raise Me Up" Video Devotion

"You Raise Me Up" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 79, verses 8 through 10. Who of us has not had a time when were brought very low? That was how Asaph found himself when he wrote Psalm 79. Asaph had seen the glory days of Israel during the times of David and Solomon. How he longed for them to return. What do we do when we are brought low? How do we respond to God? Do we blame God for our desperate circumstances, or do we call out to Him to help, realizing that He allows our trials to come so that we might grow in our faith and understanding of Him.




God Bless You,
Linda

Saturday, November 22, 2014

"The Unthinkable" Video Devotion

"The Unthinkable" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 79, verses 1 through 7. The Unthinkable had happened. God removed His hand of protection from Israel and allowed the surrounding heathen nations to defile Jerusalem. Their blood that was shed like water spilled round about Jerusalem giving food to the fowls of the heavens, but there was none left to bury them. The nation which once stood as a glorious testimony of God's help and protection, became a reproach to their neighbors.




God Bless You,
Linda

Friday, November 21, 2014

"Is God Impressed" Video Devotion

"Is God Impressed" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 78, verses 67 through 72. When He looks down from heaven upon us, is God impressed? It does not take a great knowledge of the Bible to come to the realization that the things which please us are not necessarily the things which please God. Even from the few verses shown above, we see that God does not "run His train on our tracks."




God Bless You,
Linda

"God Awoke" Video Devotion

"God Awoke" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 78, verses 65 and 66. Does God sleep? Is there a time when God is not available to us because He is sleeping? No! Often, in the Bible, the writers will use a figure of speech to explain God's actions. By saying, "God Awoke," the Psalmist is illustrating the suddenness of God's response to His people. From a human perspective, it seemed to the nation of Israel that God was sleeping. However, we know that God never sleeps, and even the chastisement He sends in the form of persecution, plagues, or natural catastrophes is measured. In other words, nothing is truly removed from God's control. Though He may allow a time of persecution or testing, He never truly leaves or forsakes His children.




God Bless You,
Linda

"Abhorred by God" Video Devotion

"Abhorred by God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 78, verses 56 through 64. Israel provoked God to anger by their religious practices of worshiping in the high places and bowing to graven images. It hardly seems possible that a nation which had experienced such marvelous miracles by the hand of God could so quickly turn away from Him. It is dangerous to presume upon God. We have a tendency to think that God owes us because, even though we sin, we are so much more righteous than those who worship other gods.




God Bless You,
Linda

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

"He" Video Devotion

"He" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 78, verses 40 through 55. As Asaph wrote these verses, note that the word, "He" (referring to God) is found in most of them. What a contrast we see comparing what God did to His enemies and what He did for His children. It is easy for us to become so involved in the daily affairs of life that we literally cannot see the forest for the trees. Let us never forget that a spiritual world coexists right along with the world we see, and God and His angels do love, guide, and protect the children of God.




God Bless You,

"A Wind That Passes" Video Devotion

"A Wind That Passes" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 78, verses 32 through 39.  There are few passages of Scripture that so pointedly illustrate our sin and weaknesses, and our Great God of love and compassion--for He remembers that we are but a wind that passes!



God Bless You,

"The Good and the Bad" Video Devotion

"The Good and the Bad" is the title of this video devotion from Psalm 78, verses 21 through 31. As we read through this rather lengthy section from Psalm 78, we are struck by the good and the bad. First we see the good: God loved his people and blessed them with untold blessings; but then we see the bad: in His anger against their unbelief, God struck down the chosen men of Israel.




God Bless You,
Linda

"Can God?" Video Devotion

"Can God?" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 78, verses 17 through 20. Having just recounted the wondrous works of God on behalf of his people, Asaph turned to the sad reality of his people's lack of faith--a lack of faith which continued to plague his nation to his present day. After personally observing miracle after miracle on their behalf, the moment they ran into difficulties the people complained.  When you reach those times of questioning God, go to Him asking for help to believe. He, alone, opens the eyes of the blind, the ears of the deaf, and the tongue of the dumb!




God Bless You,
Linda

Friday, November 14, 2014

"Time to Remember" Video Devotion

"Time to Remember" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 78, verses 12 through 16. Let us then take some time to remember the great things God has done for us. Without Him, we would be but poor lost sheep wandering listlessly through our days. With Him we not only have the riches of heaven before us, but we have a life filled with joy and meaning. In times of fellowship with the Lord, our hearts are again awakened to the joy of His love upon us.




God Bless You,

"They Forgot God" Video Devotion

"They Forgot God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 78, verses 9 through 11. The writer of Psalm 78 begins a rather lengthy section in which he recounts an historical summary of the nation of Israel. Again and again God showed Himself to be faithful among His people, and yet they continued to forget His wondrous works, and continually fell away from Him. Help us, Oh God to never forget you, but to remember your great and wondrous mercies, beginning with your great salvation.





God Bless You,

"Appointed Law" Video Devotion

"Appointed Law" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 78, verses 5-8. God set apart a people for Himself, beginning with Abraham, and gave them some very specific laws to follow. God's expectations for His people was that they would not only obey His laws, but also teach those laws to their children, that they would be established from generation to generation as a Godly nation.

"A Parable" Video Devotion

"A Parable" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 78, verses 1 through 4. wo of the most amazing words appear in Psalm 78: a parable. Now what is so amazing about that? Tucked away in the simple words of Psalm 78, written by Asaph sometime during the reigns of King David, King Solomon, or King Rehoboam, is a prophecy about the Lord Jesus Christ. Did Asaph know, when he chose the words he did that he was actually writing a prophecy about the coming Messiah? Probably not.

"Afraid" Video Devotion

"Afraid" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 77, verses 16 through 20. Reading through these verses today reminded me that we live on a living, breathing planet! Nature is alive! However, though God has given man dominion over all nature, nature, so to speak, is much "wiser" than man! The waters see God and they are afraid--even the depths are troubled. When God's voice of thunder and flashes of lightening shake the world; it trembles under His Almighty hand.

"In the Sanctuary" Video Devotion

"In the Sanctuary" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 77, verses 12 through 15. What do we find in the sanctuary of God? The psalmist poses some thoughtful questions. Who does wonders like our God? Who has shown Himself strong among His people like our God? This God, our First Love, is beyond comprehension; His love is more than we can fathom.




God Bless You,

"Wonders of Old" Video devotion

"Wonders of Old" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 77, verses 4 through 11. Asaph, upon considering the circumstances of his life was deeply troubled. Just as we often are prone to ask, he wondered where God was in all of this. What an amazing God we serve. Just as He has been ever faithful to His children from the beginning of time, so will He be faithful to us all of the days of our lives.




God Bless You,

"He Listened" Video Devotion

"He Listened" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 77, verses 1 through 3. Asaph was, indeed, troubled--so troubled, in fact, that his very soul refused to be comforted. As he poured out his complaints to God, his spirit was overwhelmed. Yet, before he even began to pour out his heart to God, he boldly proclaimed, "I cried out to God and He listened!" What a great example of hope and faith.




God Bless You,

"God Is Good" Video Devotion

"God Is Good" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 76, verses 10 through 12. Is there any doubt that when all is said and done, God is God? Even the wrath of man praises God, because he will restrain the remainder of man's wrath. Therefore, as we begin each day, let us begin it with God. Let us vow, and then pay unto the Lord what is His due, for it is He who we must fear. It is not man, but God who must dictate all of our actions.




God Bless You,

"Judgment" Video Devotion

"Judgment" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 76, verses 7 through 9. The word, "judgment," seems to have a negative connotation to it, but according the the psalmist, it is the judgment of God which saves the meek of the earth. We love to bask in His love, and indeed, His love is great and profound. However, His love must always be coupled with His righteousness and holiness which, of necessity, brings forth His judgment upon a sinful and wicked generation.




God Bless You,

"Glorious and Excellent" Video Devotion

"Glorious and Excellent" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 76, verses 4 through 6. As the nations at the time of Asaph could not find their hands, but were cast into a dead sleep, so are the nations today in the same peril. This is the God we serve. He is undone by no man or nation, but reigns supreme among all the nations of the world. That may not be obvious at this time, but the day will come when it will be made abundantly clear to all of mankind.




God Bless You,

"God Is Known" Video Devotion

"God Is Known" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 76, verses 1 through 3.  This does not mean that everyone knows that there is a God; instead, it means that Judah and Israel knew the true God, and put their trust in Him. They understood that it was God who fought and won their battles; if they went to battle armed with their own strength they would fail. We live in a time where God is known by only a few; even those who once gave glory and honor to God for their success, have abandoned such archaic ideas in favor of giving honor to man.

"Horns of the Righteous" Video Devotion

"Horns of the Righteous" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 75, verses 9 and 10. It is fitting that Psalm 75 should end with two things. First, the psalmist declares forever his praises to the God of Jacob, and secondly the psalmist reminds us that the horns of man (his power or strength) are completely in the hands of God. Let us remember that the horns of the righteous are exalted by God, but He cuts off the horns of the wicked. All that is done for self-glory will vanish as wood, hay, and stubble. Only what is done for Christ will advance forth in His mighty kingdom.




God Bless You,

"Cup of the Lord" Video Devotion

"Cup of the Lord" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 75, verse 8. What is this cup of the Lord, and why is it filled with red wine? God's love does not stop at His blessings upon His children. Truly, there is no love if there is no justice. The cup of the Lord is filled with wine, the color of blood--blood that has been shed through the centuries by those who have opposed the God of heaven. From the time of Adam and Eve, Satan has been on a rampage against the children of God. No amount of the shed blood of the people of God will ever satisfy the bloodthirsty longings of Satan and his minions.

"God Is the Judge" Video Devotion

"God Is the Judge" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 75, verses 4 through 7. As Christians, let us not live as the fools who lift up their own horns on high and speak with a stiff neck. Let us remember that God is the judge; He still puts down one and sets up another. This is the God we serve, and whether our nation is a Christian nation or not, God still rules on high!




God Bless You,

"Bear Up the Pillars" Video Devotion

"Bear Up the Pillars" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 75, verses 1 through 3. It is time--yes, it is past time, that Christians shake off the dust of apathy and spend their lives for the Lord Jesus Christ. We are here for a purpose, and that purpose is not to sit idly by while the forces of evil seem to take over the world. God is still the Victor, and we are on His side!




God Bless You,

"Remember This" Video Devotion

"Summer and Winter" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 74, verses 9 through 17.  Asaph was weary! There seemed to be no end to the wickedness that surrounded him, at a time when the Godly had all but vanished from the earth. How long would this continue? There was not even a Godly prophet who could inquire of the Lord. Truly God had withheld His hand of blessing from the few righteous who remained. Yet Asaph drew encouragement from summer and winter! When he began to think through the amazing attributes of God, He began to see how little were his own problems and difficulties.

"Why Oh God?" Video Devotion

"Why, Oh God?" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 74, verses 1 through 8. Rather than just crying out, "Why, O God?", let us take an active part in maintaining a strong faith in our own lives and in the lives of our families. Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and forever. He will answer the effectual prayers of His righteous children.




God Bless You,

"Draw Near to God" Video Devotion

"Draw Near to God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 73, verses 27 and 28. We know what a precious Savior we have, and all have had those glorious times when we bask in His wondrous presence, and yet we find ourselves, all too often, running after the things of this world. The daily chores of life consume our hearts and we become immersed in the necessities of earning a living, dealing with controversies, and then doing it all again the next day. What an amazing God we serve. Go to Him today, and thank Him for His wondrous love and mercy. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you!




God Bless You,

"My Portion" Video Devotion

"My Portion" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 73, verses 25 and 26. Christ did not die for the righteous, because no man is righteous in and of himself. By the grace of God, the righteousness of Christ is imputed to us, so that in the eyes of God, He does not see our sin and wickedness, but sees, rather, the righteousness of Christ. How can that be? I do not understand, but I know it is true.




God Bless You,

"Guided by God" Video Devotions

"Guided by God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 73, verses 18 through 24. Let us pray that, like Asaph, we will be guided by God and that we will faithfully serve Him all of the days of our lives. When we become burdened by the difficulties of this life, may we stop and ponder our amazing God who never leaves or forsakes us.




God Bless You,

"Understood Their End" Video Devotion

"Understood Their End" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 73, verses 15 through 17. When the psalmist took his eyes off himself and looked into the Word of God (came into the sanctuary of God), he understood their end. First, he realized that the apparent easy life of the wicked was just a mirage. Even if the wicked lived all of his days in great ease and suffered no evil, what kind of a future did he have? Where would he spend eternity?




God Bless You,

"Hidden" Video Devotion

"Hidden" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 73, verses 10 through 14. By the grace of God, the Gospel was not hidden from us. Therefore, let us, also by the grace of God, seek to pray for the wicked and look for ways to spend ourselves for Christ that His Gospel will be made known to them.




God Bless You,

"Purpose of Troubles" Video Devotion

"Purpose of Troubles" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 73, verses 4 through 9. What is the purpose of troubles? Why does God allow Christians to go through so many difficulties? As His children, why are our lives not filled with comfort and ease? Could it be, then, that the purpose of troubles is to drive us to the Lord? We serve an amazing God, who understands the innermost secrets of our hearts. His goal for us in life is not to provide us with comfort and prosperity, but rather to draw us to Him.




God Bless You,

"As For Me" Video Devotion

"As For Me" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 73, verses 1 through 3. Often burdened by the struggles of life, we can understand the woes of the psalmist. Our feet slip and slide over the continuous deluge of troubles that seems to come our way, and yet, when we look at unbelievers, they seem to be gliding along with no apparent discomfort. Rather than envying the wicked, let us say, "As for me, my steps are ordered by the Lord," so that even though the way may be treacherous, He will keep our feet firmly rooted in the truth of His Word.




God Bless You,
Linda
