"No, Not One" Video Devotion

"No, Not One" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 52, verses 2 and 3. It is no wonder the world is in such a state, when one considers the words of Psalm 53:3, There is none that doeth good, no, not one. We are helpless before God; nothing we could ever do or say could appease a holy God who demands perfect righteousness. However, iin Christ there is hope. Christ, the perfect Lamb of God, came to this earth, was wounded for our transgressions and was bruised for our sins, so that with His stripes we are healed.

"No God" Video Devotion

"No God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 53, verse 1. Psalm 53 could come right out of the pages of todays' newspapers. Has there ever been a time when man was more prone to disbelief that there even is a God? Man does not want God, because he does not want to answer to anyone but himself; He does not want a God to rule over him!




God Bless You,

"Thy Name is Good" Video Devotion

"Thy Name is Good" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 52, verses 8 through 9. What are the benefits of trusting in the mercy of God? The Psalmist compares himself to a sturdy green olive tree. He is not just a branch that is easily swayed in the wind, but he is a strong, mature tree that can face the storms of life, but yet remain strong. It is good for us to reflect upon the Psalmist's words and compare them to our faith.




God Bless You,

"Trusting in Riches" Video Devotion

"Trusting in Riches" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 52, verses 5 through 7. Psalm 52 continues with its discussion of the man who, with a tongue like a razor, loved evil more than good. Why did this man not fear the Lord? He did not fear the Lord because he trusted in riches. Though we live in a time of great discoveries and advancements, some things never change. In our day, we still exalt the rich.



God Bless You,
Linda

"A Sharp Razor" Video Devotion

"A Sharp Razor" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 52, verses 1 through 4. The Psalmist, in Psalm 52, compares the tongue to a sharp razor. Can anything be more true that this in the 21st Century. What does man love more than anything? Man loves to cut others to shreds with his tongue. More than one life has been ruined by the deceitfulness of someones sharp tongue.




God Bless You,

"A Broken Spirit" Video Devotion

"A Broken Spirit" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 51, verses 14 through 19. What does God desire the most from us? Does God desire most our sacrifices--our good works? No, and that is the point the Psalmist is making. God does not need our great talents, our wealth, or our good works! God desires most a broken spirit: i.e. our broken and contrite hearts.




God Bless You,

"Restore the Joy" Video Devotion

"Restore the Joy" is the title of this video devotion from Psalm 51, verses 10 through 13. We must often ask ourselves the question, "In a country such as the United States, where there are so many professing Christians, why do we see such widespread corruption?" Going a step farther, why, among these professing Christians, do we see so much depression and discouragement? Why are Christians so unhappy? t appears that this is not so very unusual; even the Psalmist cried out to the Lord, "Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit."




God Bless You,

"Whiter than Snow" VIdeo Devotion

"Whiter than Snow" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 51, verses 7 through 9. In a world filled with untold filth, is it really possible to be clean? Millions of dollars are spent each year on cleaning products; just trying to keep a small home clean is an almost impossible job. Even more important, however, is the question of spiritual cleanness. We must go to Christ today, for He alone can save us from the sin that would condemn us for all eternity.



God Bless You,

"Shaped in Sin" Video Devotion

"Shaped in Sin" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 51, verses 5 and 6. Our difficulty comes when we compare ourselves to others, when we should, instead, be comparing ourselves to God. Compared to others, we will usually find ourselves no worse than our neighbor, and maybe even better! However, no man can truly stand before God and believe to be His equal.



God Bless You,
Linda

"Against Thee, Thee Only" Video Devotion

"Against Thee, Thee Only" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 51, verses 1 through 4. Though this was a devastating time for King David, God chose to allow David to commit such a grievous sin, and had it recorded in Scripture, that He might show to us the power of His forgiveness. God desires that our first love be to Him, and shows us that, when we come with a truly repentant heart, He always forgives. We may still have to suffer the results of that sin, as did David, but we can be assured of complete forgiveness by God.



God Bless You,

"Salvation of God" Video Devotion

"Salvation of God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 50, verses 16 through 23. Can I be a Christian and act anyway I want to act? If one only has to believe to become a Christian, then Christ died for my sins even if I choose to not obey Him, right? In other words, what does it really mean to possess the salvation of God? The true salvation of God is granted to those who humbly fall before Christ, confessing their own unworthiness, and claiming Christ as the only One Who can pay the debt of their sins. As they cry out to Christ to save them, He becomes the true Lord of their life. From that moment on, they set their hearts to love and serve Him forever!




God Bless You,
Linda

"A Worthy Offering" Video Devotion

"A Worthy Offering" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 50, verses 7 through 15. Do we in actuality spurn Christ's sacrifice? Do we serve God with our lips, and yet not with our hearts? This is exactly the complaint that God had against Israel, which eventually led to their downfall as first Judah, and then Israel, were taken into captivity.




God Bless You,
Linda

"The Mighty God" Video Devotion

"The Mighty God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 50. Too often we are so caught up in the love of God that we fail to consider all aspects of who God is. Yes, indeed, God is a God of love, but because of that love, He is also a God of justice and judgment. As dwellers on the earth, we are so enamored with ourselves that we superimpose our greatness and power even above the greatness and power of God. Yet, before God we are nothing!





God Bless You,
Linda

"Shaped in Sin" Video Devotion

"Shaped in Sin" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 51, verses 5 and 6. Our difficulty comes when we compare ourselves to others, when we should, instead, be comparing ourselves to God.

"Man and Beast" Video Devotion

"Man and Beast" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 49, verses 16 through 20. As a Christian, I am sure you have already been inundated with the thought that there really is no difference between man and animals. They are all creatures who are not responsible to any but themselves. Is that what the Bible teaches? In the end, when considering man and beast, we know that we are not like the beasts of the field. God has given to each person an eternal soul.





God Bless You,

"He Shall Receive Me" Video Devotion

"He Shall Receive Me" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 49, verses 13 through 15. For He shall receive me. And that, dear friend, makes all the difference. Think of the best and greatest times you have experienced in your life, and that will pale compared to the joy and peace that we will experience when we enter heaven's abode and look on the face of Christ.





God Bless You,
Linda

"Man is Man" Video Devotion

"Man is Man" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 49, verses 10-12. I am always surprised by how contemporary the Bible, which in this case was written over 2000 years ago, is. Psalm 49 could just as well have been penned in 2011. Let us do as the Psalmist did and take a broader look at man in our day.





God Bless You,

"Costly Redemption" Video Devotion

"Costly Redemption" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 49, verses 1 through 9. In truth, any wealth we gain in this life is inconsequential if it is at the cost of our souls. Our bodies live just a few fleeting years, but what then? Can those who trust in their wealth redeem the souls of their friends and families? Can they even redeem their own souls? Ours is a costly redemption--one that a mere man is helpless to pay.





God Bless You,

"Forever and Ever" Video Devotion

"Forever and Ever" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 48, verses 12 through 14. How long is forever? How many promises made to us in this life will last forever and ever? As Psalm 48 draws to a close, the Psalmist reminds us that we can cast our eyes upon God our Father and not be disappointed. Just as we see the towers of His fortress looming above us, as we consider the city of Zion, the lasting city that will house the King of Kings, we are assured that this God will be our guide even unto death.





God Bless You,

"Lovingkindness" Video Devotion

"Lovingkindness" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 48, verses 9 through 11. Psalm 48 began with a lovely depiction of Jerusalem, and now as the Psalmist reflects on the temple of God, his mind turns to the lovingkindness of God. We do not have to look very far to understand the Psalmist's sentiments. Indeed, who in all the earth is like unto our God?





God Bless You,
Linda

"Fear" Video Devotion

"Fear" is a video Bible devotion from Psalm 48, verses 4 through 8. What do you fear? Is your fear reasonable? Psalm 48 presents a situation which troubled the kings of the earth. When they saw Jerusalem, the city of God, they were filled with fear, and rightly so. Why, then, do we not see this fear of God in the leaders of the nations in our day?





God Bless You,
Linda

"God Is Known" Video Devotion

"God Is Known" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 48, verses 1 through 3. As the Psalmist praises the Lord who reigns in Jerusalem, the city of God, we are reminded of the New Jerusalem to come. That Jerusalem will also be beautiful for situation, known to all the world, and, indeed, the joy of the whole earth!  God is known in the Courts of Heaven and in the hearts of His people as a refuge. Let us spend our lives proclaiming Him to a world that is lost and needy--a world that is without hope.





God Bless You,
Linda

"God Reigns" Video Devotion

"God Reigns" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 47, verses 8 through 9. Is it really possible for us to look at the events of today and see God's sovereignty at work among the nations? Is it really true that all nations, whether they serve God or not, are really under the control of God's Almighty hand?





God Bless You,
Linda

"Sing Praises" Video Devotion

"Sing Praises" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 47, verses 5 through 7. I am often amazed at the depth of understanding found in short phrases tucked away unassumingly in the Psalms. In many ways, verses 5-7 of Psalm 47 are a repetition of verses 1-4, except for these five words found at the end of verse 7. Let us sing praises to God, this day; let us sing praises with understanding!





God Bless You,
Linda

"He is King" Video Devotion

"He Is King" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 47, verses 1 through 4. Make no mistake, when that last child has come to Him, time will cease! When everything has been accomplished, just as He planned, Christ will return. Then, yes, we will see that He is King! All the nations will be subdued under His feet.





God Bless You,
Linda

"Be Still and Know" Video Devotion

"Be Still and Know" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 46, verse 10. What an amazing God we serve! Yes, it is good for us to be still, and know our God. Even in the middle of times of great political and physical stress, this world is under the control of His mighty hand. He alone deserves our total trust and devotion!





God Bless You,
Linda

"Works of the Lord" Video Devotion

"Works of the Lord" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 46, verses 7 through 9. The Psalmist encourages us to behold the works of the Lord, but surely God does not have the same impact upon the world today as He did in the time of the Psalmist, does He? We may not actually vocalize such thoughts, but most professing Christians today are guilty of thinking in such a manner. Somehow we see this day of modern warfare as being above the influence of God.





God Bless You,
Linda

"There is a River" Video Devotion

"There Is a River" is a KJV video devotion from Psalm 46, verses 4 through 6. In one day the heathen raged and the kingdoms were moved as war continued to erupt in the Mid East, while God uttered His voice and the earth shook in the United States. The Bible is a living book! Imagine the Psalmist penning the words to Psalm 46 hundreds, even thousands of years ago, and it reads as though it might have been yesterday's newspaper!





God Bless You,
Linda

"Refuge and Strength" Video Devotion

"Refuge and Strength" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 46, verses 1 through 3. Psalm 46 is perhaps one of the most loved Psalms written, and rightly so. When life is at its best or at its worst, God is the One who stands alone as both our refuge and our strength. Only through Christ can we honestly say we have no fear even if the very earth we stand upon is removed.





God Bless You,
Linda

"Forget and Remember" Video Devotion

"Forget and Remember" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 45, verses 10 through 17. In Psalm 45 we are brought into the very throne room of God and are given the opportunity to behold Christ's beautiful bride. Who is this bride and what charge is given to her? The bride of Christ, drawn from the surrounding nations, is the church of God, consisting of all true believers from the beginning to the end of time. In Psalm 45, Christ's bride is charged to forget and remember! So, as the bride of Christ, let us forget and remember. Let us forget the old sin which so easily besets us, and remember Christ, our King, who lives and reigns supremely forever and ever!





God Bless You,
Linda

"Ivory Palaces" Video Devotions

"Ivory Palaces" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 45, verses 6 through 9. Psalm 45 continues to paint a stunning picture of God upon His throne. His kingdom is one of righteousness and holiness, a place where wickedness has no part. It is more than we can imagine, is it not? No king or ruler who lives today or has ever lived since the time of Solomon lived in such an elegance. We are far more accustomed to countries overflowing with debt; filling the world with corruption designed to increase the coffers of the wealthy off the backs of the poor.





God Bless You,
Linda

"Christ the King" Video Devotion

"Christ the King" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 45, verses 1 through 5. I am always amazed when I read Psalms such as this, at the depth of understanding these Godly men had of the King of Kings, the Lord Jesus Christ. Remember, they did not have the New Testament writings that we have; Christ had not yet come. As we ponder the life of Christ as recorded in the Gospels, we certainly can affirm that, indeed, grace was poured upon His lips.





God Bless You,
Linda
