It's Hard To Let Go But Necessary To Do So

Posted Feb 20th 2009, 11:15 by HIS Word Devotionals on Inspiration

When you started your day today, whose agenda did you have in mind: God’s or yours? Did you start out your day saying I got to do this or I’m going to do this or did you let go of your will (ability to choose) and say God, please order my steps today, I’m open to Your will for me. You know, for many of us, the reason that it is so hard to let go of our agenda is...

Don't Miss Your Flight

Posted Feb 19th 2009, 10:37 by HIS Word Devotionals on Inspiration

Picture this. You are running through the airport halls. It seems that everybody is at the airport today. But you dodge in and out working your way towards the gate where your flight is about to take off. You gage over at the screens showing flight departures without breaking a stride hoping to get to the gate in time. You begin to sweat and feel the tiredness coming in you legs but that’s the least of your worry. And all...

Step It Up

Posted Feb 18th 2009, 10:27 by HIS Word Devotionals on Inspiration

Today, February 18, 2009 marks the 20th year wedding anniversary for my wife and me. And quite honestly, it seems like only yesterday that we were smiling at each other as teenagers doing the boyfriend/girlfriend thing :-) As I sat with God this morning thanking Him for 20 years of marriage to my wife, God impressed upon me that although 20 years is certainly a milestone, it was not time to level off but to step it up.
Many of you...

Holding The Elevator

Posted Feb 17th 2009, 09:51 by HIS Word Devotionals on Inspiration

For those of you who have ever worked in a building with elevators, there are times when after getting on the elevator and selecting the floor # and waiting for the doors to close, you will hear someone saying, ‘hold the elevator please’. And you reach down and push the button that kept the doors open so that the other person could get on. There are other times when after you’ve gotten on the elevator and waiting for the doors...

Coming Out Of House Arrest

Posted Feb 16th 2009, 08:29 by HIS Word Devotionals on Inspiration

House arrest is a form of sentencing that is sometimes issued by the court system. House arrest is where an individual is confined to their home and travel from their home is restricted if allowed at all. House arrest can offer a certain level of deception because as long as the individual is in the house, they can do whatever everyone else does; yet, they are still under a certain form of bondage and cannot go and come as they...

Planning To Love

Posted Feb 12th 2009, 10:16 by HIS Word Devotionals on Inspiration

With the planning of any event no matter how big or how small, the basic questions have to be answered: who, what, when, where, how and why. Those doing the planning work to provide the answers to these questions in the hopes of making the event a success. When it comes to us sharing the love of God, these same basic questions can be asked; however, the answer is already provided for us.
Who – everybody
What – love
When – as needed

Staying On The Right Side Of The Line

Posted Feb 11th 2009, 10:24 by HIS Word Devotionals on Inspiration

Just as any other game, the game of bowling has some guidelines that players should govern themselves accordingly. One being that a player can only go so far up the lane before they must release the ball towards the pins. There is even a line that shows the bowler how far they can safely go and where they need to stop. When a bowler crosses the line (sometimes referred to as the foul line), a light goes off letting them...

Clean And Usable

Posted Feb 10th 2009, 11:22 by HIS Word Devotionals on Inspiration

Computers can be very useful equipment; however, there are times when computers get for lack of better terms, clogged up. And what once was very useful now becomes very frustrating to use. At times computers become clogged up to the point of being beyond repair. That’s when a decision can be made to ‘format’ the hard drive. Formatting the hard drive will wipe everything clean and make the computer once again available for use.
John 15:3 NKJV “3 You are already...

Push Beyond Reasonable Service

Posted Feb 9th 2009, 10:58 by HIS Word Devotionals on Inspiration

Romans 12:1 NKJV “1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service”
Making sacrifices unto God should be the norm and not the exception in the life of a believer. However, an honest evaluation may reveal that sacrifices are made more for family, friends, job, self and children on a more frequent basis than they are for God. And although the ranking...

Giving God Extra Credit

Posted Feb 6th 2009, 08:21 by HIS Word Devotionals on Inspiration

A part of school that has been around for quite some time is when the teacher gives extra credit. Extra credit is credit that is given above the normal grade that a student can achieve. To be honest, I can remember times when it was the extra credit that caused my failing grade to become passing. And then there were times when the normal grade was 100 and the extra credit boost that grade up even higher above the normal...

Don't Quit Your Day Job

Posted Feb 5th 2009, 04:32 by HIS Word Devotionals on Inspiration

There have been times when someone would attempt to sing or play an instrument and the reaction from the audience was less than favorable. Sometimes even to the point of the statement being made: don’t quit your day job. The implication being that they would probably not be able to make a living based on their singing or playing.
John 9:4-5 NKJV “4 I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming...

All Other Ground Is Sinking Sand

Posted Feb 4th 2009, 12:10 by HIS Word Devotionals on Inspiration

One morning while spending time with God, I started to sing the old hymn, ‘On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand’. And that last part continued to echo in my spirit, ‘…all other ground is sinking sand’.
In the world that we live in and the conditions that we are faced with, we must know and live our lives based on the fact that ‘all other ground is sinking...

Follow-up Is Important

Posted Feb 3rd 2009, 12:47 by HIS Word Devotionals on Inspiration

Hospital visits work towards meeting an immediate short-term need for someone. For instance, if an individual has internal bleeding, the purpose of the hospital visit is to stop the bleeding and stabilize the individual. Upon leaving the hospital, the individual is instructed to make a follow-up appointment with their physician for this is where the continued long-term treatment will occur.
Many of us if not all of us have had to seek God for an immediate short-term need. And there is...
