The Kingdom Of God in A Believer’s Heart, By Karen Rowe


Good morning to all,

We hope this day is full of good things in your path, but sometimes, life spins us curve balls; or does it?  Today, we are looking at an incredible verse from the Bible and one that we have heard Pastor Dewey speak of often.  In fact, because I have heard Dewey speak of it often, it was ready on my heart to learn!  How appropriate to share this particular devotion on For God’s Glory Alone Ministries . org with our friend, Dewey!

As we dive into this devotion today, it is one of inspiration and encouragement that God never has a curve ball; nor is God ever surprised!  God is working all things together FOR your good!  Meaning that nothing God allows to come to you happens to you … It happens for you to learn the Grace of God, whom is with you through all things; and to grow you into a better place, a lasting place and place that you can grab a hold on eternity!!!  Time belongs to God; and Jesus teaches us that “we want to go around” what God asks us “to go through … WITH HIM”.  Things happen for you; not to you!

Think of Bees and how they collect pollen from the flowers.  We as believers collect knowledge from God’s Word and understanding through and by His Holy Spirit.  Friends, if I had one encouragement for you today it would be to know that what you eat edifies / or defiles your body, soul and spirit.  How do you eat Jesus?  That’s what He said, isn’t it?  Jesus is the Spirit of God’s Word, LET it melt into your heart!

But how do you let God’s Word transform your heart, if you don’t go to the flowers and collect the pollen?  Don’t just read God’s Word; LET God’s Word read your heart!  And, let the Word of God transform your heart!

One honey comb at a time, God fills our heart with His Word; like bees fill the Honeycombs of their hive; (with the sweet honey and the goodness of God’s holy word); God is filling our Heart with Understanding that the Kingdom is Come to abide in our heart!

But what is your heart you may ask?  Is the heart, that God is referring to, your mechanical heart that is pumping blood through your veins?  Or, is the heart that God referring to, the life in you that never dies!!!  The spiritual heart is who we are!  Our faith is centered in our life that God renews in us day by day.  We are a spirit; as Jesus was a spirit.  Jesus was a spirit; and as Jesus has a soul and a body, so are we a spirit, who has a soul and a body.

And, we need Jesus to be alive in our spirit!

Bees don’t get confused about who they are; neither should we be.  Bees get their material from flowers and we get our pollen from God’s Word.  God’s word ministers to our entire being that is made (and being made daily) whole by Jesus!  Our soul is our mind, our emotions and our will, but God’s Word directs our spirit / our heart; and our soul follows Jesus, by His Spirit!  We know His Voice; and we choose to follow Jesus, just as a bee follows its path to the hive; we trust and obey God!

Change happens!!!

Welcome to Hope in Today Ministries,

Daily Devotion to God’s Holy Word.

The Kingdom Of God in A Believer’s Heart, By Karen Rowe


Today the verse is so much more than you take at first glance! Will you join me for a time of inspiration and encouragement to learn deeper from God’s Word?
If you are not reading God’s Word daily for courage, strength, correction, change & the sweet byproduct of applying God’s Sweet Word to your life, I hope this encourages you not to miss your destiny!
I thank Jesus for the revelation to read God’s Word, because before I did, I didn’t know God had a problem with some things in me I needed to change.
With every change for God’s glory, God’s Word is stored up in our heart ready to spring forth! Praise God when words are ministered in the Power of His Spirit! Like dripping honey from God’s hive, He builds His Kingdom [Honeycomb] in our heart!
The only reason for God’s Word is to transform me & once I receive the honey of God’s sweet Word of LIFE, encouragement & correction, The Holy Spirit stores up that word in our transformed heart to minister the same to others in their time of being readied and prepared for God’s Greater things!
“The only reason for being a bee that I know of is making honey… And the only reason for making honey is so as I can eat it.”
–Winnie-the-Pooh (1926) by A. A. Milne
Today’s Verse is coming from the Book of Wisdom!
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
Proverbs 16:24 KJV
Notice: The focus is not on the honey, but the Honeycomb!
The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord .
Proverbs 16:1 KJV
Winnie the Pooh nailed it! God’s Word is for me! And for all who will read.
The only reason for God’s Word is for making a better us; and the only reason for God’s word is so that we can eat it!
But don’t eat in vain, Jesus teaches forgiveness & Love!
As bees make honey to live, and there is excess to harvest; so is God’s Word to a believer!
The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips. *Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
Proverbs 16:23‭-‬24 KJV
I hope this is a blessing to you Today!
Will you share your revelations with us? We would love to hear how God’s Word has encouraged you. We can build up / or we can tear down. Be sure to build yourselves up in your most holy faith & pray in the Holy Spirit.
Jude 1:
20But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 21keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23and others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
24Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.


Love in Christ,

Karen Rowe

God gave us a Ministry and named it Hope in Today.

Our mission is to be ambassadors for the Lord Jesus in the power of His love, to teach in the power of His Knowledge, to minister in the power of His Spirit, and to God be the glory!  This is your mission in Christ too.  So whatever we do, let us do as God’s Word instructs our heart to do; and do with the same love and devotion that God has shown us.

*If you don’t know this love of Christ, you can.  Believe in your heart and Confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord.  And let Him be the Lord over your life.  You will discover a friend in Jesus … if you don’t let your heart get discouraged.  Speak God’s Promises to your life, over your life, and IN your life!  SPEAK GOD’s WORD and see the manifestations of God’s love for you …as a bee makes honey from the pollen.

Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;

Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

We need each other to get to where God calls us to go!




Praise God – For we are ever-increasing in HIS power and in His knowledge that is of God!


” For God

hath not given us the spirit of fear;

but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. “


Thru and By Jesus,
God has given us the Holy Spirit OF His Mind … A Sound Mind is HIS Mind, which translates to Self-Control & Self-Disclipline!       .  .  .  .   Is this good for you Today?


Obedience to God IN Faith in & of The Christ is where all blessings from God are discovered! Follow Jesus and Trust in God. There is no fear in Love, but perfect love drives out fear. That’s why there is a calm that comes over you when you hear the Word of God preached. And that is why fear creeps in AT you when you hear the media preach. JESUS calms the storms and there is no mountain Satan can build high enough that faith IN CHRIST can’t tear down. Jesus is a POWERFUL Name! & Jesus is the name above all names.



“BUT LET a man EXAMINE himself, AND SO LET him eat OF THAT bread, and drink OF THAT cup (1 Corinthians 11:28 KJV).”

“FOR THIS CAUSE many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep (1 Corinthians 11:30 KJV).”

Thank you Jesus for this Revelation?  I pray in Jesus Name for you to Receive in Christ the life Jesus was Risen to Give you!  Do you want to be made well?  what did Jesus say to the man who wanted to be made well?



And, Always Remember 2 Things!  No, Today, God gave me 3 things:

1.  When you receive this, you will never be the same!

2.  God for us.  God with us.  God in us. 

3.  Always Remember to come to Jesus, Before you go head on.

How do you find out How much God loves you?  How do you get from Point A to Point B?





Point A *Must Repent

Point B *Beginning of Being Born Again.



Repent is a beautiful word!  It means letting go of condemnation & turning to walk with God In Jesus Name.

*We can’t get to where God is taking us if we wont’ let go of what is in one hand to follow Jesus with both hands ready to receive the life and blessings that are found in our relationship with God the Father through and by Jesus, the Son of God:  Jesus truly is the Christ, the Son of the Living God!  This is my Testimony, but by me telling you what Jesus does for me, this gives God permission to do it again in your life!


Can I say give God permission?  Sure!  As a parent is waiting on a child to believe enought to obey … to come into a trusting obedience:  yes, this response to God in Believing in Whom God is activates our believing Faith for God to do it again!  God is waiting on us to move from point A to point B!


1st Step to Being Born Again, Repent!  For the Kingdom of God is near to you!  Lord, I receive this!  I will never be the same!  The Kingdom of God is NOW!  Repent and Be Born Again to LIVE and Be set FREE from the law of sin and death (Pride and Selfish Ambition).

Believing on Jesus, 


After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Matthew 6:9-13 King James Version (KJV)

Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
