Devotions For Your Soul

Devotions for your soul are devotional Bible challenges, written by Pastor Joshua Lehman, to encourage and strengthen believers in their walk with Jesus Christ. Grow closer to God by spending time in His Word! Take the time to read the Scripture passage before you read the devotional and allow God to speak to your soul.


Standing Up for Jesus

Can you imagine being taken from your home and made a slave in a foreign land? Everything you have known is gone. Daniel and his friends had this very thing happen to them.


Total Sacrifice

Did you know in China, Olympic athletes are chosen when they are as young as six years old? From the time they are chosen, each athlete will go to special schools where they will be trained to compete and win. Everything about their lives will revolve around this. Truly, they are living sacrifices for their country.


Struggling With Obeying God?

Have you ever struggled with your Christian walk? Has doing what the Bible says seemed to be boring and tedious? You know what is right, but you just don’t want to? If you said, “Yes” to any of these questions, you’re not alone. Many people struggle with this and more. However, even though you are not alone, God doesn’t want us to stay there, doubting His goodness and strength.


Comeback Stronger

Drew Brees is one of the greatest Quarterbacks in NFL history, but his comeback story makes him even greater. During the 2005 season, Brees was on fire. In Week 4, he led his team to victory over the mighty New England Patriots, he threw 19 of 24, including two touchdowns and earned AFC Offensive Player of the Week. He had a career high passing yards of 3,576 during the season. However, in the last game against the Denver Broncos, Brees tore his labrum while trying to pick up his own fumble causing a season ending and possibly career ending surgery. 


Losing Equals Winning

How would you like to be known for losing? One of the most amazing feats in NFL history is the Buffalo Bills making it to the Super Bowl four times in a row, yet losing each time. From 1991-1994, the Bills were an incredible team, beating opponents and making it to the biggest game of their lives. Yet, they couldn’t pull out a win. Four Super Bowls, four defeats. How devastating this must have been. We always want to win and not lose anything. 


Lights Out

Super Bowl XLVII in 2013 was one of the most memorable Super Bowls of all-time. It was a coaching match between two brothers, Jim and John Harbaugh. But, what made it even more memorable was what happened in the 3rdquarter.

Confession: The Door to Fellowship

Can you believe it? The Creator God, The Infinite One, The Almighty, wants to, no desires to, have a real, passionate, intimate relationship with you! No really, can you believe it?! At times it’s hard to fathom this. Yet, the Bible is clear that God yearns to have daily fellowship with you. He hungers to commune with you. Incredible!

If You Love Me

This statement of Jesus is so simple, yet so challenging to accomplish. “If you love me,” He says. “If I love you?” “Of course, I love Jesus.” Why would He question our love for Him? A phrase we say often is, “I love you.” Yet, does our life back up our words? True love is not just verbal; it always shows itself in some form.

Caution! Destruction Ahead

There is a desire within most people to “fit in” and to “go with the crowd.” Something within our old sinful nature craves acceptance. Has this ever happened to you? You’re hanging out with friends, having a good time, and one of your friends mentions doing so
