Victory Was Already Won

The Spirit of God in you when you received Jesus Christ (Immanuel, God with us) into your heart is greater than Satan and his schemes and attacks. 1 John 3:8b The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. 1Cor 15: 57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord…

All-Weather Friend

  Thank You Lord, You will even be with me when I need to walk. Or even when I can’t.   

Glimpses of CBN Asia’s Health Recipes for Women Seminar

CBN Asia held a seminar entitled Health Recipes for Women.  Malu Ortiz invited me to sing an inspirational song and discuss with her her book, Ikaw Na Ang Maganda, at the Henry Sy Auditorium at St. Luke’s Hospital, Global City last November 30… There were several informative speakers but I was feeling under the weather and didn’t…

Arm Yourself

Today’s YouVersion Verse:   Who you are against or who is against you is not your enemy. Our struggle is not against people (“flesh and blood”) even though if we only look at the natural, we are constrained into thinking this or that person is the enemy. Our struggle, in the higher reality, is against…

Light Up My Life

Light is most precious in the dark.  What otherwise would be a cause of fear in the dark, like a pretty fluttering butterfly, could easily be seen in the light as not something to be afraid of.  A nuisance like a fly would be hard to catch in the dark but would be easier to trap with a…

Love App Free Download

Do you have to like people to love them? Do they have to be lovable for you to love them? Do they have to be “valuable” (in the world’s eyes) for you to love them? If Jesus were asked that question and if He said yes to each one, He would have allowed us to…

Wrenching Worldly Wants is Whopping Work

Lord, this is such a radical, high calling. Help me work it into my life because on my own, I can’t do it.  These are like default settings that naturally appeal to the self. Only You and Your almighty power can help enable me to cling to You so closely that I can see and…

The Greatest of These Is Love

  “If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels,  but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I have the gift of prophecy  and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge,  and if I have a faith that can move mountains,  but do not have…

Something New You Can Count On This New Year! 

Nothing so obvious may have changed from yesterday to today. “Do you not see it? Do you not perceive it?” Translations of Isa. 43:19 ask of the new thing God is doing. Sometimes I don’t. But blindness or denseness or perception doesn’t change truth. God is in the business of making things new. He is…
