Yes, You Do Matter To God
by Don Richey on October 4th, 2022
…the sheep hear His voice: and He calleth His sheep by name.  John 10:3I think we can all say at times that we have felt like we were just a face in a crowd or a number in a system. We’re all identified by our social security number in many ways. So, if you feel depersonalized and dehumanized at times, that is exactly how the devil wants you to feel. That you do not matter much to anyone, especial...  Read More
Every Name Must Bow To Jesus' Name
by Don Richey on September 28th, 2022
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name. That at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.  Philippians 2:9-10In life, whatever is troubling you, if it has a name, it must bow to the Name of Jesus. Even the dreaded C word, cancer must bow to the Name of Jesus just as every oth...  Read More
Rest, So God Can Work
by Don Richey on September 21st, 2022
Then she said, “Sit still, my daughter, until you know how the matter will turn out; for the man will not rest until he has concluded the matter this day.”  Ruth 3:18God doesn’t want us to be self-reliant or trusting in our self-effort. God also does not want you to believe that if you don’t do anything, nothing will happen. That may be true for someone without God in his life, but it is not true ...  Read More
God Has A Dream For You
by Don Richey on September 14th, 2022
For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.  1 Samuel 16:7If you try to picture David as a Shepherd boy, you will most likely see him as just an ordinary youth. One who lived at home with his parents and siblings. But where others saw a typical teenager, God saw a king in young David. He saw David’s name being spoken in honor for...  Read More
Call For What You Need And Want
by Don Richey on September 7th, 2022
…God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; Romans 4:17So often when we look at ourselves, we don’t see what we can become. But when God looks at us, He sees what we can become by His grace. When Jesus first saw Simon, He changed his name to “Peter,” which means “rock.” But did Peter instantly become someone with the characteristics of a rock- sol...  Read More
Whatever Concerns You, Concerns God
by Don Richey on September 3rd, 2022
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Matthew 10:30I can’t imagine having a wife and three daughters of which I would ever have the time to count the hairs on their heads. I’m sure I’ll never do that. We’re told that every day, our hair drops out. But, God knows how many hairs are left afterwards. He also knows how many are growing back. He knows because He does bother to count them a...  Read More
God Desires For You To Live In Abundance
by Don Richey on August 24th, 2022
For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken; Luke 5:9There are still so many preachers preaching from the pulpits that God only supplies our needs, not our wants. But, in the Bible, God clearly shows us that He wants to meet not just our needs, but also our wants.For example, in Psalm 23:1, we’re told, “The Lord is my shepherd; I SHALL NOT WANT”. Psal...  Read More
You're Called From Your Mother's Womb
by Don Richey on August 17th, 2022

God Loads You With Benefits Daily
by Don Richey on August 10th, 2022
Blessed shall you be when you come in and blessed shall you be when you go out.   Deuteronomy 28:6The promise, “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out,” in the Jewish community, refers to being blessed in the affairs of one’s daily life, whether in or outside your home. So, in this verse, God is saying that you are blessed in your everyday life. Do you beli...  Read More
You Will Have What You Say
by Don Richey on August 3rd, 2022
For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, Be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he SAYS will be done, he will have whatever he SAYS.  Mark 11:23It’s hard for some to grasp that Jesus actually did say that we would have what we SAY. But what happens so often is that people say what they don’t want to have. Charles Capp...  Read More

He's God of the Hills and Valley's
by Don Richey on July 14th, 2022
Then the servants of the king of Syria said to him, “Their gods are gods of the hills. Therefore, they were stronger than we; but if we fight against them in the plain, surely we will be stronger than they.”  1 Kings 20:23In 1 Kings 20, we find the Syrians being defeated by the Israelites. Then, some of the Syrian king’s advisers gave the king what they thought was the reason for their defeat. The...  Read More
