God’s Walls

God's Walls "The sons of Israel went through the midst of the sea on dry land, and the waters were like a wall to them on their right and on their left." (Exodus 14:22) Just because you find yourself in a hard place does not necessarily mean that you missed God or have a lack of faith. Sometimes, according to His Divine plans, He leads us right between a rock and a hard ...

“Is there anything too difficult for the Lord?”

"Is there anything too difficult for the Lord?" (Gen. 18:14) Isn't it amazing that what is an obstacle to us is absolutely nothing before our Lord! When God promised a son to Abraham both he and Sarah, his wife, were well past the childbearing age. They were so old that when the angel promised a son Sarah laughed as if to say, "are you kidding?" She laughed because it was...

“If we do not give up”

"If we do not give up" "And let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not give up" (Galatians 6:9) There is never a good time to give up! But I know sometimes we feel like it when we do not see what we need to see, when we get tired or disappointed, when it looks impossible, when we listen to the nay-sayers that discourage us. But the...

How do you feel today?

How do you feel today? "Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." (Colossians 3:2 NIV) So how do you feel today right now? Angry? Sad? Afraid? Did somebody push your buttons today? Did something in your past come up and depress you? Did some of the news of the world cause you to be worried? I found out a long time ago that feelings like to take over. They...

Keep Rowing

Keep Rowing "Then Jesus told His disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up" (Luke 18:1 NIV) One of the reasons that I look forward to Summer is that I get to row around the lake near my home in my big red canoe. Sometimes I paddle alone as my son David follows in his kayak or sometimes I take my grandchildren out as we look for frogs,...

Leave it in the Tomb

Leave it in the Tomb Peter saw, " the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus' head, the cloth was still lying in it's place, separate from the linen" (John 20:7 NIV) When Jesus was laid in the tomb, they covered His face and body separately with burial linens as was the custom of the time. When Mary and the others came to the tomb on that Resurrection day morning, the...

Alone No More

I know our Lord is always with us. He said that He would never leave us or forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5) But there are those times when we need Him more than others. I believe the Lord is never closer or more intimately present than when we are in trouble, afraid or hurting. In those times, He understands how we feel and showers us with His love, compassion, grace and presenc...

Are You Listening?

One day, King Jehoshaphat King of Judah and Ahab King of Israel joined together to go to war against their enemy. Ahab was not a very godly king and Jehoshaphat, a godly king, lacked discernment in forming such an alliance. Jehoshaphat needed a Word from God before he actually went to war. He sought God's will. Ahab gathered together 400 prophets, 400 "yes men", who always...

Don't Bow

Unless you have been living on Mars for the past few years, it is obvious that our nation (and the world) is going through a major cultural transformation. The world is changing every day, and most of it not for the better. Mass media and the entertainment industry seems void of morality, medical and health care issues are crossing ethical boundaries, the shifting politica...

The Fight of Prayer

I love the heart of Paul. During his life he encouraged Timothy to "Fight the good fight of faith"(1 Tim. 6:12). And at the end of his life he stated, "I have fought a good fight"(2 Tim. 4:7) Paul knew about fighting because he never forgot that he was in a war against evil. Sometimes, have we forgotten that we are in a war? We have armor but not for the beach, but for the...
