Watchman: Daily Devotional, We All Go Through Trials in Life. They May Be Health Trials, Relationship Trials, Financial Trials, or Emotional Trials, but All of Our Hardships and Difficulties End up Being Spiritual Trials as Well
Daily Devotional: When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm forever. — Proverbs 10:25 We all face difficulties in life. They may be health challenges, relationship trials, financial trials, or emotional trials, but all of our difficulties and sorrows end up being spiritual trials. When it aches, where is God?

Daily Devotional: Matthew 12:48-50 (NIV) 48 He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” 49 Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. 50 For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” After Jesus entered Samaria, the Gospel accounts rarely mention his family.

His relatives had conveyed word that they wished to chat with him. Jesus’ reaction was not one of rejection of his family. He was expressing a profound truth.
