    Grace for Today Today's Scripture "Give us this day our daily bread…" (Matthew 6:11, NKJ). Today's Word from Joel and Victoria God has grace in store for you every single day. Grace is His supernatural empowerment, His unmerited favor on your life. All throughout scripture, we see God giving daily grace, empowerment and provision to His people. For example, when the people of Israel were in the wilderness headed toward the Promised Land, God gave them manna each morning to eat. It would just appear on the ground. But, He specifically instructed them to gather up only enough for...

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria In the natural, what do you do when you're hungry and just not sure what will satisfy you? You may try to think of what to eat, but maybe you're not sure what will hit the spot. Spiritual hunger works the same way.

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria In this day and age, our culture has gotten used to having constant activity going on: computers, cell phones, television, email, video games.

I've found this to be true especially during the difficult times. When you are facing a challenge, it's easy to want to run to a friend or...

    Living Breakthrough Minded Today's Scripture "For You, O Lord, are my Lamp; the Lord lightens my darkness" (II Samuel 22:29, AMP) Today's Word from Joel and Victoria I’ve learned when things are difficult and don’t look like they are going our way, that’s when it’s the easiest to lose our joy, vision, and enthusiasm; to believe that things will never get any better. But during those challenging seasons in life, we have to learn to do just the opposite. Right in the midst of the adversity, that’s the time–more than ever–to expect a flood of His favor; a flood...

    A Mark of Honor Today's Scripture "Avoiding a fight is a mark of honor; only fools insist on quarreling" (Proverbs 20:3, NLT) Today's Word from Joel and Victoria I’ve found that for most people, it can be easy to start a fight but hard to end one. It’s easy to get offended and say things that we know we shouldn’t, but once you get started, it’s difficult to stop. It’s hard to let it go. That’s why the scripture tells us that it’s much better not to ever even start a quarrel. If you want God to honor you,...

    He Anoints Your Head with Oil Today's Scripture “…You anoint my head with oil" (Psalm 23:5, NKJ) Today's Word from Joel and Victoria TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria In the Bible, oil is symbolic of the anointing of God. Do you know what oil does? It makes things flow. Whenever there is friction or something gets stuck, putting oil on it makes it become more fluid. That’s what God wants to do for you. He wants to anoint your head with oil. When he does that, notice what David says in Psalm 23, “Because God anoints me, because...

    Redeem the Time Today's Scripture “So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days” (Ephesians 5:15-16, NLT). Today's Word from Joel and Victoria Time is the most valuable commodity in life that we have. It’s more valuable than money. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time.
