Look Up!

by Marilyn Roberts

Psalm 121:1-2 (NIV), “I lift up my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Need help? Look to Jesus! Psalm 121 is one of my favorite scripture passages. I can’t even count the many times this truth has brought me […]

Preparation To Resist Evil – Part Three

by Marilyn Roberts

To achieve anything worthwhile in life there is usually a good deal of preparation that has to be made. We’ve been discussing how to prepare to resist evil by reviewing the pieces of the armor of God found in Ephesians 6. Here’s our foundation verse: “A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in […]

Preparation to Resist Evil – Part Two

by Marilyn Roberts

Last week we discussed the importance of preparation when we fight against the strategies of the evil one. Paul encourages us in Ephesians 6 to put on the whole armor of God, “A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will […]

Preparation To Resist Evil – Part One

by Marilyn Roberts

There is nothing worse than being unprepared; especially when you know better. A soldier wouldn’t think of going into battle without weapons and a strategic plan for victory. An Olympian would never think of competing without giving him/herself to training in their specialized field to guarantee a win. A successful salesman wouldn’t think of pitching […]

Abba Loves Me

by Marilyn Roberts

“Abba Loves Me” Satan doesn’t want you to realize how powerful and true those words are. He knows that if you allow the truth of those words to become a reality in your life, you will never again be swept away by the onslaught of discouragement. You will never allow those overwhelming feelings of shame, […]

A Condemning Heart

by Marilyn Roberts

Recently, I had an opportunity to minister to a young lady in prison who had been convicted of murder. So often we who are not in prison believe that people in prison get “jailhouse religion” in order to vie for some favor on their sentence or garner support with those they perceive will help them. […]

Memories

by Marilyn Roberts

Our memories are often very powerful. Have you ever had someone say something to you and later you not only remembered it but you could hear them saying it? That memory is so vivid that you seem to hear their voice when you recall what they said. I’d bet we all have memories of what […]

The Right Response

by Marilyn Roberts

A morning devotional referenced the story of Solomon, David’s son. The Lord appeared to him in a dream and asked him a simple question, “Ask! What shall I give you?” (1 Kings 3:5, NKJV) The devotional writer asked, “What would you ask God for?” I thought, “There are so many crucial needs in my life, […]

Be Not Weary

by Marilyn Roberts

The 14th verse of Psalm 27 reads, “ Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!” Waiting. That’s what my husband and I had been doing. Along with being obedient to what He required of us and walking out our lives with faith […]

The First Messengers

by Marilyn Roberts

I love how God loves to do the unexpected! He delights in surprising us by making the unlikely likely! Such was the case with the first messengers who announced that Jesus was born. I can imagine it was just like any other night the band of shepherds were guarding their sheep. Perhaps they were sitting […]
