Today's Devotional: Dec. 9

Managing Expectations

Isaiah 55:9 provides a guide for managing expectations: God’s ways and thoughts are higher than our ways and thoughts. Meaning, whenever we think we are certain of how and when God will act . . . watch out!


Dr. David Jeremiah’s Why the Nativity?

Celebrate (and share) the Real Reason For the Season

Why the Nativity? Is For Everyone!

We need to enter this Christmas season strong—ready to keep Christ in Christmas and share the life-changing Gospel message with a world in desperate need of hope!

You’ve probably seen in your own circles of influence that hearts are most softened to the message of Christ at Christmastime—people are more open to an invitation to a church service, more willing to hear (and even sing along to) a song about Jesus, and more interested in the biblical account of what happened in that little town of Bethlehem.

But the Christmas story is more than just a story—it’s the story of the Gospel! And Why the Nativity? is more than just a film—it’s a way to share the Gospel for generations to come! Now is the perfect time to reach our world for Jesus—and to take an incredible step forward in evangelism at Turning Point. Discover what we can learn from Jesus’ birth and more about the heart behind this incredible film by watching a powerful interview with Dr. Jeremiah and Sheila Walsh.

The 2023 Turning Point Devotional

Moments With God

As the new year begins, determine to make time with God a priority in your life each day! Our 2023 devotional, Moments With God, is designed to help you do exactly that. Begin or end each day of the coming year by focusing your thoughts on our sovereign, loving, holy God. Allow your heart to be encouraged and strengthened as you discover more of God’s character and care for His people.

Our lives are made up of moments, and how we use those moments greatly affects our life and the lives of others. The distractions of everyday life and the world around us threaten to occupy our minds every second of our day, often leading to anxiety and worry. But time in Scripture provides the strength and peace we need to make each moment count for eternity.

Make the most of your moments in 2023 by experiencing the power of God’s Word for yourself with this beautiful devotional.

Prioritize Your Life In Light of His Return - The World of the End by Dr. Jeremiah

Prioritize Your Life In Light of His Return

The World of the End by Dr. Jeremiah

From this Point Forward

“The Reason Christ Came” by David Jeremiah

The world lies in its own rubble, its own self-inflicted darkness and pain. The greatest enemy of all is the irresistible force within us, the thing that is known in the Bible as sin. We are all too aware of its grip upon us. We know that its only work is that of our destruction. And yet we enslave ourselves to it in every way. No one has the power to rise above the tendrils of sin. Therefore, the ruin of our fallenness is all around us. The debris is all-pervasive. Our world’s inhabitants, billions of them, long for their rescue, often without even realizing what that longing is for.

Then a light shines in the darkness. A beacon slashes through our despair….

Christmas Through the Eyes of a Child

Children and the Joy of Christmas

Christmas Through the Eyes of a Child

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the innocence of children who seem to “get it” much more easily than we adults. They believe readily, and they speak readily. They have no guile, no cynicism, and no commercialism. If you tell a child that Christmas is when we celebrate Jesus’ birthday, they’re completely fine with that.

One family I read about had a tradition of setting an extra empty chair at their Christmas Day dinner to symbolize the presence of Jesus at their family’s birthday celebration for Him. After all the presents had been opened on Christmas morning, the grandmother asked her little granddaughter, “Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas, dear?”

The little girl replied, “Well, no, but it’s not really my birthday.”

Christian Legacy Planning Organizer

We all enjoy planning for our family vacations and getaways with loved ones. However, how many of us spend more time planning a vacation than we do planning for the future? Probably most of us. Why? Because planning for a vacation is fun, exciting, and brimming with anticipation. Planning for our future seems to be a bit different since it can involve fear, confusion, and uncertainty. But, if you plan for your future legacy in an organized way, it can be just as simple as planning for that wonderful vacation that is so exciting. You just need to get started, and we want to help.

Tour the Land of the Bible with Dr. David Jeremiah

After leading several trips to the land of the Bible, Israel has become one of my favorite places on earth. Donna and I are excited to return for another Turning Point Israel tour, March 19-29, 2019.

We’ll visit historical places like:

  • Gethsemane
  • The Sea of Galilee
  • The Mount of Beatitudes
  • And more

I’ll guide you through these sacred sites and others, teaching God’s Word as we retrace our Savior’s steps. Imagine seeing the same landscape Jesus saw, being baptized in the Jordan River, or singing at the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem.

These life experiences will change you forever.
