I heard one time about a preacher who was visiting in another church. He was there each night for a week of meetings. One night as he came in for the service, he greeted on of the local men and asked him this question, “Have you got the victory, brother?” The man responded with a statement that puzzled the preacher, he replied, “No, I’ve got something better.” The preacher asked, “What could be better more

about victory over death

Written By: Mechele McMichael

I have wanted to write a devotion about this topic for awhile. I know God has been preparing my heart to have the words to say. It is my desire that this devotion will bring much peace and comfort to those of you who can't quite seem to get the victory that belongs to you. The sadness of losing someone to death may keep you from seeing the realities in Christ. We too have more

We all recognize this verse as being about the youth named David who killed the mighty giant Goliath, who was single handedly defeating the whole army of Israel.

the source of conflict

Many of the struggles in our lives are not mere accidents! They are also not put there by God. Our challenges very often come from the hand of our enemy, Satan.

don’t lose it

The idea that the Christian life is smooth sailing in calm waters is far from the truth and anyone who tells you differently is simply mistaken or is lying. No where in the Bible is it said that the Christian life is an easy life. We do people a real injustice when we tell them that if they will just get saved them that they will never have any more problems.The fact is that more

Difficult times will come to us while we are in this world, this is inevitable. I don’t think that there is anyone, anywhere who would disagree with that statement. I should hope not, because if there was, they would be disagreeing with what Jesus said in the Word.The question is not whether or not we will have some difficult and trying times, the question is the origin of these hard times.

Point of view is a very important aspect of life. It can be the factor that determines whether you have victory or defeat in your daily life. This is reflected by whether you see that glass as half full or half empty. Either way, the glass has no more or less in it, the only difference is in how you perceive the glass. A half full glass seems better than a half empty glass doesn’ more
