Let Us Know
by Peggy Brumfield on March 28th, 2021
This is Easter week and it’s time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. We celebrate because through His broken body and His precious blood, we are redeemed, forgiven and restored as the people God intended us to be. Join us as we pray for the Lord to let us know how to live for Him, how to walk for Him and how to talk for Him. It is time.Take your place and stand....and was declared to be the S...
Man of His Word
by Peggy Brumfield on March 24th, 2021
There was a time in our history, when a man or woman’s word was bond. Words were important and not thrown around without integrity and truth. If he or she said it, you could believe it. They stood by their word. If a person broke his or her word or promise, it would cause others to lose faith and trust in whatever that person said going forward. Character was important.Many contracts and bonds wer...
The Power of the Spirit
by Peggy Brumfield on March 22nd, 2021
We are weary of the pandemic and all the worries of the world. It’s so tempting to put our heads in the sand and pray it passes over us somehow. This is not the time to give up or to run away. It’s time to double down and invite the Holy Spirit to come into our lives and every situation. It’s time to push through and pray for the revival we need to get past it all. It’s time we allow the Holy Spir...
It's Time to Spring Forward
by Leonidas Batres Montoya on March 17th, 2021
This past weekend, we sprung forward with time. Spring will officially be here later this month, too. Already, I’m getting that spring cleaning fever to start whisking away the winter dust. What is it about sunshine, warm air and even gentle rains, that just excite us to move; to throw open the windows, plant flowers and a garden; to trade in our heavy coats and boots for a light and carefree atti...
Seeing the Invisible
by Peggy Brumfield on March 11th, 2021
Do you remember the story of the Invisible Man? He could walk through a room and unless he had on a piece of clothing, you wouldn’t know he was there. He used his invisible ability to do good and solve mysteries. Unless you knew him, you found it highly impossible to believe anyone could be invisible. It’s hard to believe in what you can’t see.Many go through life demanding an explanation for thin...

This devotion is dedicated to my sister in Christ, Yvonne, who is a F.R.O.G. Thank you for bringing FROG to my attention. I now share it with all my friends here.When my friend told me she was a FROG, I chuckled, primarily because it’s a name of endearment and fun that is tossed around in our family. I immediately thought of the amphibian that lives in ponds and croaks. Her meaning, however, was f...
Faith the Disrupter
by Peggy Brumfield on March 4th, 2021
Jesus had a long couple of days. His disciples had just come back from their mission excited to tell Him about it. But because so many people kept coming, they didn’t even have a chance to eat. Although Jesus tried to take them away where they could talk and rest, too many people recognized them. By the time Jesus and the disciples landed, there was already a large crowd. He had compassion on them...
by Peggy Brumfield on February 21st, 2021
Are you a disciple maker? Do you see the vast harvest just waiting for us to fill the boats with fish, fish ready to taste and see Jesus? Our hope is in Him and the work He commissions us to do. His disciples were no different from us. They had their worries and their doubts, especially after His death and resurrection. But they pushed through. He gave them abundance and hope, just like He does fo...
Keep It Moving!
by Peggy Brumfield on February 18th, 2021
It is so easy to get paralyzed by everything happening in the world, from the pandemic to our own issues and trials. We start to reminisce about the past and how things were better, even if they really weren’t. Fear keeps us from moving forward because we don’t know what lies ahead. Fear rushes us into paralysis analysis as we swirl and our eyes are blind to what the future holds.Living in constan...
This Is How You Love
by Peggy Brumfield on February 13th, 2021
We’ve talked about the love the Lord has for us and the love we should have for Him; however, we cannot talk about love and ignore the other of the two commandments Jesus gave us: love your neighbor as you love yourself. If ever we need to heed those words, it is now. Facing bitter divisions within our country, our families and our neighbors, it’s time for us to return to His ways. He did not say ...

There’s a game I just loved to play called, “The Game of Life.” It’s a board game with little cars that you put stick people in and you go around the board of life. You may pick up a kid or two, a house and more, but the game is supposed to be fun as you go through the ups and downs of life. My favorite part was yelling, “Your move!” because I wanted to play the game fast and win.The game takes yo...
Quiet Our Souls While You Work
by Peggy Brumfield on February 7th, 2021
With all we are facing in our homes, in our nation and in the world right now, it can be overwhelming. We are tired of the pandemic and all the other unrest and chaos around us. What we could depend on in the past is now just shaky ground. But praise God, we know the all powerful King who is not moved and cannot be shaken. All we need to do is quiet our souls, have faith and trust in Him, and watc...
This Time, I'll Be Still
by Peggy Brumfield on February 6th, 2021
On Friday, we learned that we can speak to the mountains in our lives. Just in case you are still trying to wrap your mind around that, we are going to keep speaking until we believe the words coming from our mouths. This is so important that we are going to continue to confront those mountains.Let’s be truthful, we can be anxious at times because it’s a challenge to face our mountains. They seem ...
by Peggy Brumfield on February 5th, 2021
A mountain is a natural elevation that rises abruptly from the surrounding level of land. It can be extremely tall, incredibly wide or very hard to scale. The issues we face in life can seem just like a mountain. In fact, problems can rise abruptly and seem insurmountable, unmovable and so formidable that we feel there’s nothing we can do to get past them or over them.Take the Israelites, for exam...
Living in God's Zone
by Peggy Brumfield on February 4th, 2021
We are getting close to the Super Bowl and football is in the air. At least it is in my house. My husband was talking about the game with one of his buddies and since they both played professionally, they talked about being in the zone before big games. Basically, it means you desire to succeed so much that you focus in on the part you play, your position, until all you see is you reaching that go...
On Your Face
by Peggy Brumfield on January 26th, 2021
There’s a saying, “Desperate times require desperate measures.” It originated hundreds of years ago from an ancient Greek physician, Hippocrates. Basically, it means that actions you might not have considered in the past become the best choices under adverse circumstances. We are in just such times, and if ever we needed to take desperate measures, it’s now.We’ve been in desperate times for a year...
The God Who Sees Me
by Peggy Brumfield on January 20th, 2021
Sometimes we get impatient and take matters into our own hands. We want things done in our time frame, which is often quicker than what the Lord planned. That’s when we give the Lord a little help to get us where we want to go. Inevitably, this never really works and if anything, it prolongs His plan and complicates everything. Then we wonder where God is and why He doesn't step into the mess we’v...
A Leap of Faith
by Peggy Brumfield on January 18th, 2021
We’ve had a rough past year and as we’ve entered 2021, the enemy has not let up on his attack. As I thought about the global, national and personal crises we face, I was struck by the uncanny deceit of Satan. Picture him throwing everything he has at the world, at us, so fast that we can’t catch our breath. It’s like one wave after another. Maybe you feel that way too sometimes.Have you ever seen ...
Bring On The Praise
by Peggy Brumfield on January 15th, 2021
It’s been a while since we’ve had a praise day and today is as good as any. Now some of you may be thinking, “I really don’t feel like I have it in me today.” That’s exactly the time you should just throw off whatever your problems or worries are, and enter into a time of worship. When we praise the Lord, blessings come down and our spirits are lifted. Breakthroughs happen, we can see our situatio...
I Will Fear No Evil
by Peggy Brumfield on January 10th, 2021
It can be so easy to feel broken by all the unrest, sickness and death surrounding us right now. We are walking in unprecedented times and we need unprecedented solutions. Those can only come through the Hope of our salvation, Jesus. In the midst of it all, His victory is our victory. But to be victorious, we must not walk in fear, but in confidence knowing that He is with us. This week, join us a...
Ready for A Breakthrough
by Peggy Brumfield on January 2nd, 2021
It’s time to focus and block out all the negative voices that tell us what we can’t do. This is the year of “can do.” We’ve been whipsawed, spun around and put on a never ending roller coaster, but it’s time to shake it all off. We are no longer at the whim of every theory, opinion, or untruth. Our eyes are laser focused on Jesus, the lifter of our heads.Dig deep, my friends, and dust off your con...
Jesus Changes Everything
by Peggy Brumfield on December 19th, 2020
We’ve been on a roller coaster of change for months and the roller coaster hasn’t stopped yet. We’ve gone from joyful highs, large and small, to some steep dips that seem like they have no bottom. Our emotions have been trying to keep up with the hope, the fears, the doubts and the faith. It’s been tough to hang on sometimes because just when we get used to one change, another one just happens.Do ...
What's On Your Christmas List
by Peggy Brumfield on December 10th, 2020
This is the time of year when Christmas lists are made, hints are dropped and commercials never seem to end. If you have kids or grandkids, they can’t wait to give you their lists of what they just can’t do without. But this is 2020 and for the first time, we will experience Christmas during a pandemic. How different the lists may be this year. What’s on your Christmas list?If you’re having troubl...
Hope in Our Highest Praise
by Peggy Brumfield on November 29th, 2020
Our Unite 714 prayer this week is one of praise. When we give the Lord the highest glory, the highest praise, heaven’s doors open wide for blessings and answers to our prayers flow down upon us. Do you realize the power that is in your praise and prayers? Miracles and breakthroughs are so possible, even to the cure of a disease which causes a pandemic. Give the Father your highest praise this week...
Keep The Faith
by Peggy Brumfield on November 18th, 2020
Faith is personal. Strong as a bear. Shaky sometimes. Easy in the good times. Hard to hold on to in challenging times. A light in the tunnel and the lifeboat in a storm. What is faith? Simply put, it is trust in God. It is “the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above th...
