Devotional: God Will Never Let You Go – @maxlucado

June 7, 2019

We never outgrow our need for a father’s love. We were wired to receive it! Listen closely. The words I give you are God’s. Don’t filter, resist, or deflect them. Just receive them. My child, I want you in my new kingdom. I have swept away your offenses like the morning clouds, your sins like […]

God With Us – Max Lucado 

December 13, 2016

In Matthew 1:23, God called himself, “Immanuel”—which means, God with us! Not just God made us; not just God thinks about us; not just God above us; but God with us. God– where we are! He breathed our air and walked this earth. God. . .with. . .us! Bethlehem was just the beginning. Jesus has […]

Click the Save Button

October 25, 2016

​ Does the Bible work?  Does its teachings change us?   There’s one way to find out. Click the Save button!  There’s great satisfaction when having created a document, we reach up and press the Save button.  The click reshapes the landscape of the hard drive. As long as the words are limited to the […]

​Traffic Signs and Pardons

October 22, 2016

We cherish pardon, don’t we? I know it well. I know the highway patrolman who oversees it! And now he  knows me. He looked at my driver’s license. “Hmm… aren’t you a minister here in San Antonio?” he asked. “Yes sir,” I replied. “On your way to a funeral?” he inquired. “No,” I said. The […]

We Don’t Like to Wait – Max Lucado

October 3, 2016

We dont like to wait.  We are the giddy-up generation. We frown at the person who takes eleven items into the ten-item express checkout. We drum our fingers while the microwave heats our coffee. Come on, come on. We don’t like to wait. But look around you. Do you realize where we sit? This planet […]

Your Mess as Message – Max Lucado 

September 29, 2016

I like the conversation Bob Benson recounts in his book, See You at the House, about his friend who had a heart attack. For a while it seemed his friend wouldn’t make it. But he recovered. Months later Bob asked him, “Well, how did you like your heart attack?” “It scared me to death, almost,” […]

Life is a Required Course

September 28, 2016

​God can make something good out of your mess! The test you are experiencing will become your testimony. 2 Corinthians 1:4-5 says that God comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone who’s going through hard times so we can be there for that […]

Behind Bars – Max Lucado 

September 23, 2016

In 1965 Howard Rutledge parachuted into North Vietnam and spent the next several years in a prison in Hanoi, locked in a filthy cell breathing stale, rotten air trying to keep his sanity. Few of us will ever face the conditions of a POW camp. Yet, to one degree or another, we all spend time […]

​Lean on God’s People – Max Lucado 

September 17, 2016

Whatever it is that’s troubling you, you’ll get through this!   Cancel your escape to the Himalayas. Forget the deserted island. This is no time to be a hermit.  Pray.  Lean on God’s people.  Be a barnacle on the boat of God’s church.  Matthew 18:20 says,  For where two or three are gathered together in […]
