Before we leave the psalms, let's look at another psalm that can be helpful in times of discouragement. “Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart. But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. For I was envious at the foolish, when [...]

There are more psalms about suffering than any other type. Many times when we are suffering we question God. We wonder if His love is temporary. We wonder if God is angry with us. A look at God's history with His people will change our minds. The psalmist had the same questions. “I cried unto God [...]
Discouragement comes when we lose our motivation to keep on going. This can happen when we focus on the mountain in front of us and think it is too steep to climb. It can happen when we are in the valley and it is too dark for us to see our way out. It can [...]
We have been looking at biblical meanings of specific words and our last one was “salvation” and although the Bible says much more on what it means to be saved, I'm going to move on to another word. A group of ladies were going over some prayer requests and were overwhelmed with the amount of [...]
We have looked at what the Bible says about salvation and that has brought up more words that we need to know the biblical meaning. We ask many questions regarding believing.

They don't understand the love of God; they don't know who [...]
In our past devotions we have studied the biblical meaning of faith, hope, love, grace, mercy and holy. Our next word is “salvation.” Believers understand what salvation means but unbelievers do not. Unbelievers understand what it means to be saved from a bad accident, saved from not getting the flu or from a number of [...]
As always we learn much from the Bible when we take time to read and study it. We have been looking at different words and learning what the biblical meaning is so we can better understand God's Word. As we finish looking at the word “holy” let's remember that God commands us to be holy, [...]
When we start comparing ourselves with other people we can sometimes get a holier-than-thou attitude. The Bible says: “For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.” (2 Corinthians 10:12 KJV) We need to keep [...]
