Daily in the Word Lamp Unto My Feet Thank you for choosing VBS4ever.com as one of the many
Despite being mentioned only once in God’s Word, Anna was an admired woman of faith. She spent her life serving, fasting, praying and growing so close to God that she became known as a “prophetess,” proclaiming God's Word (Old Testament) and helping others understand His will. Luke 2:36-38 – “And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; 37 And she was
Look around you. People are hurting, broken, beaten down and feeling hopeless. Who will speak up for them and show some Love? What if all Christ-followers would lift our eyes to Heaven and pray as one before the King?
Psalms 5:2 - “Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.” When the body of Christ starts praying, the world will change! Strongholds will start to break and prison walls will shake! Nothing will stay the same if we will hum
Many people pray. Some pray hard, and sometimes promises are made when times are dark. “God, if you’ll just get me out of this one, I promise to serve you the rest of my life!” So God comes through … but then few of those promises are surrendered. Still, the anthem rings, inviting us to listen to the sound of the kingdom calling. Awake our souls, Lord! Ephesians 5:14 - “Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.” L
So you want to leave a legacy? Speak with authority? Believe beyond what you see? If you want to know the plans God has for you, it all starts where we all belong … kneeling in prayer to our Maker.
Psalms 95:6 - “O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.” John 20:27 – “Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust [it] into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. When we ar
Today’s song is an oldie but goodie. I remember first hearing it years ago when our kids sang it in a Christmas play at church service. The words and music captivated me and I couldn’t get it out of my head. I still love this song! It calls lost souls to Jesus and fills us with Hope. In today’s world, we need Hope and the Love of our Saviour more than ever! Romans 3:23 - “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
Romans 6:23 - “For the wages of sin is death;
Have you ever questioned God? From the ‘small stuff’ like, “Why mosquitos?” to the ‘big stuff’ like, “Why do young ones have to die, long before their time?” God’s instruction manual answers our life questions but have you ever noticed that God is often the first to be blamed when things go wrong? Troubles in this life are inevitable and Christ-followers should RUN to the Father when trials come! He’s on our side! He Loves us! Psalms 118:6 - “The LORD is on my side; I will no
Have you carried a burden for too long on your own? You weren’t created to bear it alone. Hear the Lord’s invitation to let it all go!
Matthew 11:15 - “He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.” Lay it all down at the foot of the Cross!
Psalms 55:22 - “Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.” Run to the Father and fall into grace! There’s no need to keep hiding, no reason to wait. We are all sinners in need o
Lord, this new year You have our full attention; our eyes are fixed on You. We ask You to burn away every distraction and tear down the walls so You can move. We won't hesitate to give you the glory due Your Name. Please open up the gates of heaven; we seek You right here, right now ... 1Chronicles 16:11 - “Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.” King Jesus, You've won all our affection and we’re looking to You to guide our every step. Hebrews 12:2-3 – “Lo
We all suffer trials from time-to-time. God knows what we can bear and provides a way for us to be delivered from trials and harm. To effectively fight temptation we need to turn our hearts to God in order to strengthen our weaknesses, to turn back satan and heal our pain. 1Corinthians 10:13 - “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also ma
Happy New Year! May 2023 be full of God’s love, grace and mercy. May we all grow in Christ and be bold in sharing His gospel message. 2Corinthians 5:14-15 – “For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15 And [that] he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. May all of us aspire to read, study God’s Word and pray more …
It’s that time of year when many people resolve to make a change, to do something new in the coming new year. Some vow to lose weight or quit smoking, to exercise more … all admirable goals … but all for the physical world. Consider making a spiritual New Year’s resolution … something you will do that you can take with you to heaven … something with eternal rewards!
Here are 4 ideas ... Read and Study the Word of God.
Which Bible version? “Study to shew thyself approved unto
Today’s song contemplates the condition of this world … has it always been so full of trouble, or how did we get so far down? How are things going to turn back around? Many turn their eyes toward Heaven and say, "God, why don't You do something? There are people living in poverty, children sold into slavery ... that’s disgusting!” God answers, "I did. I created you!" Matthew 5:10-12 – “Blessed [are] they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom
God provides, so why do we worry about our life? He comes to the rescue every time; all other voices are lies! God provides in ways I can't explain and can't deny; and the little that I have He multiplies! Philippians 4:19 - “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Rely on His Word; He shall supply all your need. And just when it feels like He won't show up on time, God provides! 2Corinthians 9:8 - “And God is able to make all
After Jesus’ resurrection, He talks to the eleven disciples in Matthew 28:19, commonly referred to as “The Great Commission”, and tells them to “go and teach” what He has taught them. Matthew Chapter 25 describes the last judgment and explains the former parables. We cannot lose sight of the fact that Jesus Christ is the great Shepherd; He will shortly distinguish between those that are His, and those that are not. We are to share (go and teach) the gospel message with everyo
God’s thoughts and His ways are higher than ours, so we sometimes don’t understand when or how He’s working in our lives. Ever been running late and go out to your car to leave and discover a flat tire? As if your day hadn’t started off bad enough, and now this? So you get the tire fixed and head out, upset and frustrated because you’re late, and later you find out there was a fatal wreck down the road that happened just about the time you would have been there … if you hadn’
Alleluia! We have Someone and something to celebrate … The King of Kings, our wonderful, merciful Saviour, Who died so that you and I might live and spend eternity with Him in heaven! Pretty cool stuff, that you can know if you’ll be spending eternity with Jesus instead of the lake of fire ... it’s kind of a no-brainer choice, right? Pray and tell Jesus you’re sorry for your sin and ask Him to save you from hell. He’s been waiting for you to knock so He can open the door of y
Merry CHRISTmas Eve! We hope you will take time out of what is typically a busy day to watch today’s videos. The song describes the biblical story of our Saviour’s birth and amazing life and in another video clip, the songwriter tells the story behind the song. The child that Mary delivers is the Lord of all Creation! He is not merely God’s “only” Son … He’s His “only begotten” Son. Perfect Love! John 3:16 - “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, tha
When the angel told the shepherds of the birth of Christ, a multitude of the heavenly host appeared and praised God! The good tidings made them shout out for joy! Do we shout for joy at the thought of the birth of our Saviour? Do we praise God for the gift of His Son, and the gift He offers us? Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere! Go tell it on the mountain, that Jesus Christ is born! Luke 2:7-14 – “And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped hi
Long ago, the angels sang, “Come to Bethlehem to see the newborn King! Come, adore on bended knee, Christ the Lord! Gloria in excelsis Deo!” How to pronounce “Gloria in excelsis Deo” Did you know: ‘Gloria in excelsis Deo’ means ‘Glory in the highest degree’. Luke 2:8-14 – “And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them:
