You've Never Failed Me Yet
by Devon McCoy on April 9th, 2021
I have always believed in God’s ability to do physical healing. I’m not really sure why I have had unshakeable faith in the face of difficult times, except to say that it has been a gift of faith. I would read accounts in the gospels of Jesus healing people, or the early Christian church after Pentecost, and I was confident that the same things are still possible today through the Holy Spirit.As I...  Read More
My Oldest Friend
by Devon McCoy on March 16th, 2021
I grew up in church. I’m one of those people who can’t remember a time before I was saved. I remember moments when my understanding would catch up to what I believed. As I grew, I became more aware of my beliefs and my own abilities to choose them. I was five or six the first time I understood what it truly meant that Jesus had died for my sins and I had the opportunity to accept Him into my heart...  Read More

A Filling of Hope
by Devon McCoy on November 4th, 2020
Today is full of heightened emotions. There are feelings of fear, frustration, apathy, resignation, anger, mistrust and more running rampant. We all recognize that there is a threat of darkness, just waiting for us to open the door to it. The enemy is poised to strike, because he knows our fears. But the enemy only has one hope in his attack: that we would listen to the lies he is feeding us which...  Read More
The Splendor of His Holiness
by Devon McCoy on September 28th, 2020
There is a deeply personal surrender that we are called to live out in response to our God’s holiness. He is worthy of our worship. Worship refers to the personal posture of our spirit before God. We are called to bow down before Him and worship Him as the everlasting King of our lives.  It is certainly easy to be confused between worship and praise. While both are required of us, they are differe...  Read More
