Clarksville, TN – “The joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10 NKJV) No wonder Jesus desired so strongly that His disciples understand that He had come, not just to buy their salvation through the cross, but also to provide them with His joy. Jesus told His disciples.
“You haven’t done this before. Ask, using my name, and you will receive, and you will have abundant joy.” (John 16:24 Living)
The joy of the Lord is ours for the asking. Jesus prayed for us. “But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.” (John 17:13 NKJV) «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville, TN – Not one sparrow can fall to the ground without God knowing it. And the very hairs on our heads are all numbered.
So don’t worry we are more valuable to Him than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:29-31) Jesus told His disciples that God keeps an eye on every sparrow and counts every hair on our heads, yet the fact remains that sparrows do fall.
Tragedies do come to us. Innocent little children die under the wheels of cars driven by drunks. Someone we love is struck by cancer and dies in spite of our prayers. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville, TN – When your eyes are examined, the doctor holds a card in front of you and says, “Keep your eyes here, but tell me when you see my other hand.” Then he brings his hand from behind your head and pretty soon, out of the corner of your eye you see that hand.
That is the capacity God has given our physical eyes, and also our spiritual vision. We can be looking at Christ, and at the same time, out the corner of our eyes, there is something else trying to catch our attention. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – If I gave you 10 cents as a free gift you probably wouldn’t get excited. One would probably throw it away or laugh. Then if I gave you another 10 cents you may shake your head and probably disregard the gift still at a loss trying to figure out what I’m trying to prove.
If instead of a dime, I offer you $1,000 bill, I’m sure you’d get excited right away. And if I gave you another one you will stare at me in amazement as you begin to realize just how fortunate you are. You may cry for joy and probably tell someone right way about the wonderful gift you’ve received. What good news to share with others! As long as you live, you’ll want to talk about it. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – “Dear brothers, is your life full of difficulties and temptations? Then be happy for when the way is rough your patience has a chance to grow. So let it grow and don’t try squirming out of your problems. For when your patience is finally in full bloom, then you’ll be ready for anything, strong in character, full and complete.” (James 1:2-4)
God has a special plan for our lives. It began long ago when He first created us. He formed us lovingly, carefully, and exactly to His specifications. Every detail just as He wanted it, your looks, your abilities, your place of birth, the family you were born into or lack of it. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – Do you think it would be easier to be perfect if you weren’t surrounded by difficult people? Think about it though, why are people the way they are?
We often quote a verse that says, “My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19 NKJV) Did you ever stop to think that God also supplies the people with whom you need to live with? «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN - Do you believe God made you the way you are for a reason? And put you where you are because He wants you to be there? Stop and think about it. If you are like me and everybody else I know, you are surrounded by many kinds of circumstances and you are reacting to them.
As children of God we can have authority over our circumstances. Think of yourself standing in the surf with the water up to your armpits and here comes a big wave. If you don’t know much about waves you may try to run from it, but it will suck you back and throw you down with a thundering force. Helplessly you tumble around, gasping, and fighting for breath until you emerge in shallow water, bruised and dropping like a drowning kitten. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – There are some things in Christianity that are harder to understand then other things. Submission is one of them.
When we become Christians, one of the first things we are told about our new life is that “But as many as received Him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God…” (John 1:12 KJV).
When we first discover that verse we think “Wonderful, all that power is mine!” Then we find out even better news, “and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ…” (Romans 8:17 NKJV) Just imagine being joint heirs with the Son of God who said “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” (Matthew 28:18 NKJV) «Read the rest of this article»
