Being Watched Over

Submitted by Michael Thompson on Thu, 04/25/2019 - 6:00am


A God wise enough to create me and the world I live in

is wise enough to watch out for me.

Philip Yancey

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, 

because the one who is in you is greater than

the one who is in the world.

1 John 4:4

Filling Up

But Christ proved God’s passionate love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost.

Romans 5:8

This is love: He loved us long before we loved him. It was his love, not ours. He proved it by sending his Son to be the pleasing sacrificial offering to take away our sins.

1 John 4:10

Submitted by Michael Thompson on Mon, 04/22/2019 - 6:00am


And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit

Ephesians 1:13

Home is ultimately not about a place to live but about the people with whom you are most fully alive.  Home is about love, relationship, community, and belonging, and we are all searching for home.

Help us to remember that our days are numbered, and help us to interpret our lives correctly. Set your wisdom deeply in our hearts so that we may accept your correction.

Psalm 90:12

Are you ready?

It is a tricky question.

Deeper Into Enemy Territory

Submitted by Michael Thompson on Wed, 04/17/2019 - 6:00am

We all need a little encouragement now and then and we all need a little reminding once in a while. That is why we created The Wednesday Morning Rescue; the audio or video devotional offered as a part of Zoweh’s Daily Orientation.

A Great Exchange

Submitted by Michael Thompson on Tue, 04/16/2019 - 6:00am


God, I invite your searching gaze into my heart. Examine me through and through; find out everything that may be hidden within me. Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares. See if there is any path of pain I’m walking on, and lead me back to your glorious, everlasting ways— the path that brings me back to you.

Psalm 139:23-24 (TPT)

It is Time to Arise

Submitted by Michael Thompson on Thu, 04/11/2019 - 6:00am

Believers today, for some reason, do not have the upper hand. Well, actually we do. We just don’t know how to wield it in our own lives, much less for the hearts of others. It is impossible to walk in victory when one is still a POW, saved but under the power and authority of a few good lies. Oh yes, a believer can be under the influence of the enemy. Look at priests and pastors, our highest-ranking officials in the church—there is more going on when they go down in flames than the pressures of their jobs or the demands of ministry.
