Job Understood His Spiritual Poverty
Job 9:20 (KJB) If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.
Though Job was an ancient man, he understood his own poverty. He knew that there was nothing in him or about him that was special or remarkable. Quite the opposite in fact. Job realized that apart from God he was nothing or had nothing of value in and of himself.

Faith Among A Giant
1 Samuel 17:4-8 (KJB) And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. 5 And he had an helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass. 6 And he had greaves of brass upon his legs, and a target of ...

Corruption and False Counsel Hurled Against Stephen
Acts 6:11-14 (KJB) Then they suborned men, which said, We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and against God. 12 And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon him, and caught him, and brought him to the council, 13 And set up false witnesses, which said, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law: 14 For ...

Even Our Thoughts Speak to God
Hebrews 4:13 (KJB) Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
You might think that it is your mind and you can believe and freely contemplate upon whatever you desire. What God doesn’t know about your mind is merely an accounting of your own private thoughts.
My thoughts are Just between me, myself, ... Continue Reading →

Settle Down in Your Captivity
Jeremiah 29:4-7 (KJB) Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, unto all that are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem unto Babylon; 5 Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them; 6 Take ye wives, and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear ...

An Ostentatious Offering
Mark 12:41 (KJB) And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
Jesus took time out of his busy day as He stood near the entrance to the temple to take in the pretentious manner which some of the rich people tossed money in for the collection. To Him, perhaps this was a showy act demonstrating the hypocrisy at work in ... Continue Reading →

They Were All Afraid
Acts 9:26 (KJB) And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple.
This verse points to the fear and anxiety at work inside the hearts and minds of these professing men of God. These disciples were taken aback by Paul daring to join in with them as a disciple. They were not hospitable or approachable ... Continue Reading →

Heavenly Wisdom is Pure, Peaceable, and Perpetually Potent
James 3:15-17 (KJB) This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
There are two kinds of wisdom at work in this world. One understanding originates ... Continue Reading →

Falling into the Ditch
Matthew 15:12-14 (KJB) Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? 13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. 14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
Just as genuine spiritual children naturally follow God. A spiritually ... Continue Reading →

Spiritual Conflict Naturally Lies Within Ourselves
Romans 8:3-5 (KJB) For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the ...
