Daily Dose – All Powerful


Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

When we face serious troubles, people often cannot provide the solution.

Limited by human frailty, even the most generous them can only help us so much.

In every trouble, we have a greater asset, if we believe in Jesus. Our all-powerful Creator offers protection from harm and strength for the longest trial. He always wants to come to our aid.

Facing a trouble of any size?

Turn to Him today!

Receive His Strength


Psalm 9:9 The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.

The Psalms often speak of God as a refuge. Whether you face something large, like oppression, or something much smaller, He wants you to turn to Him in perilous times.

Size does not matter, but your trust in Jesus does.  Nothing you face is a shock to Him; He knows your troubles and has not deserted you.

So  go to your refuge and take strength from Him.

Daily Dose – Put God First


Psalm 16:8 I have set the Lord always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved?

How many times have we done things on our own accord without first putting it before God.

Like David we should always put God first in everything we do. In Him we gain our strength, sword and shield.

With God at the forefront of everything in our lives we will be able to declare just as David did; “Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved”

What a marvelous and peaceful place to be.

Daily Dose – On My Knees


Luke 22:41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down,and prayed

When was the last time you knelt before God?

Jesus, on the night he was betrayed went before His Father on bent knees to make his request known.

Jesus showed us that the most humble way we can approach our Father is on our knees. When we approach God in humility he provides strength for our journey.

On our knees we a physically vulnerable but spiritually powerful. Maybe it’s time we begin to exercise our spiritual authority.

Daily Dose – Stand Firm

Rock of Refuge

Psalm 94:22 But the Lord has been my defense, And my God the rock of my refuge.

Are you under attack by friends, family or coworkers?

If it comes because of your obedience to the Lord, stand firm in the face of their comments. He will defend you.

If you face harsh words or nasty attitudes, remain kind and He will assist you.

Should your boss do you wrong, don’t worry. Those who are against a faithful Christian are also against Him, and God will somehow make things right.

Daily Dose – Always Faithful

never alone

Hebrews 13:5……………..“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Even when stress of fear challenges you, you need never to deal with it single-handedly, if Jesus rules your life.

When life seems in shambles around you, He offers strength and comfort for a hurting heart.

God never gives up on you. His love cannot change.

Today, delight in the One who never deserts you.

I Smile


I smile and laugh a lot, not because I don’t have trials or tribulations but because I have the joy of God in my heart. I understand that everything in my life is for a reason and I rejoice in all things, understanding that it is the will of God for me.

My smile was once my defense mechanism to fool the world into thinking I was alright, but today it’s my testimony that in spite of, God is still in control, and I can rely on his strength to see me through every situation.

I smile knowing that even though things aren’t perfect now, they will be sooner or later. So even in THIS, Lord Jesus I give you praise!

Daily Dose – Pass It On


Mathew 6:14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

Forgiveness isn’t only something God gives us. He designed it to be passed on to others. Doing that, we learn the value of the pardon the Father offered us.

Even when everything in us screams, “No, I can’t forgive,” He empowers us to do so, if we trust in Him.

Our loving never Father commands us to actions He cannot also strengthen us to do.

Daily Dose – Renewal of Faith

Isaiah 66:12 As one whom his mother comforts, So I will comfort you;And you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.

Like a tender mother, God comforts his people. When life challenges us, we have a place to renew out faith.

Instead of questioning God’s compassion because we face a trial, we can draw ever nearer to Him, seeking to do His will.

Surrounded by his tender arms, we gain strength to go out and face the world again!

Daily Dose – God of Comfort

2 Corinthians 1:4 [God] who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

When you hurt God offers you comfort.

No trouble is so large or so small that He would not help. But when you have received his strength for the trouble at hand, do you share it in turn?

Comfort isn’t meant to be hidden away, but passed on to those in a similar need. As part of the body of Christ, we; the Church, should be sharing the knowledge that God cares for and strengthens all His children.
