In What or Who Do You Trust?

In What or Who Do You Trust?

Psalm 20:7-9 (KJB) Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. 8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright. 9 Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.

Is a properly worded question what do you trust?  Or is it better worded as who do you trust?  Trust is a popular word that is ...

Let the Celebration Begin!

Let the Celebration Begin!

Luke 15:22-25 (KJB) But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: 23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: 24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. 25 Now his ...

Pleasure in Submitting to God

Pleasure in Submitting to God

1 John 5:3 (KJB) For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

It is not possible to profess a love for God and live in spiritual opposition to Him.  Sincere love for God includes agreeing with His holy estimations.  A child of God aligns himself with God rather than existing against Him.

Love for God unites hearts.  Hate for things of God divides a man away ...

God Does Not bat in the Clean-up Spot

God Does Not bat in the Clean-up Spot

1 Thessalonians 5:17 (KJB) Pray without ceasing.

As danger approaches a person is often intently focused on prayer to God.  Or when he has a sudden medical emergency his prayers to God come one right after the other as he pleads with God for life-saving mercy.  Just like in a medical emergency, after an earthquake, or other natural disaster ends and life goes back to normal, prayers often cease.

Mankind can often be ...

Without the Resurrection, Trusting in God is Pointless

November 13th, 2018

Without the Resurrection, Trusting in God is Pointless

1 Corinthians 15:32 (KJB) If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.

The Apostle Paul was always moved to be articulate, or swinging for the fence when recording the inspired Word of God.  This scripture verse is certainly a “Spiritual Home Run.”   It begs each of us to ...

God Spake in Time Past

God Spake in Time Past

Hebrews 1:1-2 (KJB) God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.

Scripture is “God-breathed.  The very words found in scripture were divinely spoken of God.  Not only that but His words were divinely recorded by scribes for ...

A Child Ministering Before the Lord

A Child Ministering Before the Lord

1 Samuel 2:18-19 (KJB) But Samuel ministered before the LORD, being a child, girded with a linen ephod. 19 Moreover his mother made him a little coat, and brought it to him from year to year, when she came up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice.

“Samuel ministered before the Lord…”

This passage talks about a young child ministering to others about God.  Samuel was a young man, likely older than a small ...

Condemned Already

Condemned Already

John 3:18 (KJB) He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

A person who does not believe in things of God is already condemned and set to die rather than to live forever.

Condemnation is not a work of God but naturally arises when a person chooses to not believe in God.  It is a natural ...

Glorify God in Suffering

November 9th, 2018

Glorify God in Suffering

1 Peter 4:16 (KJB) Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

Suffering as a Christian.  Wow, perhaps this is where many professing Christians fail in their walk.  Many want to identify with Christ when the going is good and pleasant.  However, when the walk gets tough and the road contains many bumps and potholes just waiting to trip them up, they often ...

It is Too Heavy for Me

November 8th, 2018

It is Too Heavy for Me

Numbers 11:14 (KJB) I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me.

The Israelites complained to Moses and Moses whined to God.

“It is too heavy.

How can I do this job alone.”

Moses quickly began to feel sorry for himself and to wind his thoughts further and further from God.

We have all been there.  The road before us is long, the job is hard, and in our limited ...
