    Don't remember the former things, and don't consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing. It springs out now. Don't you know it?

    Now Yahweh's word came to me, saying, 'Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I sanctified you. I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.' Then I said, 'Ah, Lord Yahweh! Behold, I don't know how to speak; for I am a child.' Jeremiah 1:4 WEBJeremiah tried to reason w...

The Lamp

  • Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light for my path. Psalms 119:105 WEB

    The old oil lamps that were used in biblical times had a small radius of light. They would light the path just a few feet ahead of you and you could not see very far down the road. When traveling by night, you could see just enough to take the next step. When you did take that step, the circle of light moved with you and then you could see a little farther. The entire journey was made like this, one step at a time.

    I have heard it said that if you took a 'soon to be bride' into her new house and showed her all the dirty dishes that she would have to wash, the stack of dirty diapers that she would have to change, all the meals that she would have to prepare and all the housework there would be to do, she would run for the hills. So it is with us. God shows us just enough of the path for today. Tomorrow, He will show us what we need for that. Jesus told us: 'Therefore don't be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself' (Matthew 6:34). When the problems show up, so will the answer. Don't worry about problems that do not even exist yet. You will only exhaust yourself.

    Just because you are struggling with something, it does not mean that God is not with you. Living a Christian life does not mean that we will not face trouble, but that God can be trusted to handle the trouble when it arrives.

    So many times I have wanted to know what was farther down the road, what was coming, but God gives us enough light for today. I have always found that when tomorrow came, that He took care of that as well.

    Prayer: Father, I thank You for lighting my path and the way that I should go. Let me walk in Your light all the days of my life and guide my steps. Please send me Your peace today and ease my mind and fears, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Janet Clary
Janet Clary Pastor Dion, you really have the gift!!  This devotion speaks to me for something I face each day... fear and anxiety!!  There are times when i get worked up about tomorrow and I haven't even gotten into the next hour of today.  God loves us so much and there are moments when we want to stretch that light into days ahead.  I love the Lord more than ever as He has given me the opportunity to rebuild my life and do it one step at a time.  I am learning to appreciate the light each minute of today and be thankful for the grace of God to let me see His true beauty, if just for the moment.  Thank you Pastor Dion for the gift you gave me and everyone today in this gentle yet loving devotion.  Hugs, Janet

Ruby Kehayias
Ruby Kehayias My husband is getting ready to venture into full time a business that he has been only doing part time.  He will be leaving his full time job and benefits. This will make me the primary bread winner until the business is more productive. This has been scary for me as it bears a lot of responsibility on my part. But I know that God can be trusted with whatever lies ahead. Thank you, Pastor Dion, for that confirmation!

Kath Paro
Kath Paro Oh my goodness, my worries and anxieties about what is gonna happen an hour from now or a day, week, or a month is a wasted effort?  Those times aren't here yet.  Yes, I am planning for an event in April.  I need to remember that my Higher Power is walking beside me and it will as He planned, not me.  This relieves a lot of the pressure I am putting on me!  This message couldn't have come at a better time.  I will re-read it when I feel myself getting into the next hour with my efforts!  Bless you, Dion.....

Kim Dalton
Kim Dalton Thank you for sharing this today...I have always felt that I need to be ready for the worst, so that I won't be caught with my guard down. I call it "being ready for bear". I have realized by doing so, I am missing out on living in the present, and it's not just hurting me spiritually, but, mentally & physically as well...I've heard many times that we have a "fight or flight" condition to help us when facing danger. Staying in that state is not healthy, as it can affect the adrenals, depleting them of what we might need at some time in our lives. Something to do with the cortisol released into our body.  I am realizing all the areas of my life this way of thinking has only robbed me of TODAYS blessings, TODAYS walk with the Lord, etc. I choose NOW to STOP letting satan control my thoughts, as I know he has probably been very happy with me living in that state of mind! I KNOW that God is with me today, and will be with me in all my tomorrows. God bless.
