God Speaks

How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth (Ps 119:103)

I know God speaks, but do I want to listen? I am doing just fine on my own. Am I afraid of what God is going to say me? I am told God is a consuming fire and a jealous God – will he speak words of punishment that will cause me to beg him to be silent? Will he command me to do things that I am unable or unwilling to do? Will I turn away from the one Continue reading God Speaks

Easter

Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. (Hebrews 9:28) This Easter we bow in awe and adoration before our God who in his infinite wisdom, amazing grace, and boundless love created a way for us to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, and for God to enter into our life and have fellowship with Continue reading Easter

This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!

We rest in an eternal Continue reading Rejoice

How Does God View Work?

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Col 3:17) Throughout our career our work experiences range from jobs we thoroughly enjoy to work we would rather not do. God sees our work differently. God sees all our work as opportunities to cooperate with his eternal purposes. When we are working God sees us as being obedient to his command. In Continue reading How Does God View Work?

Calling

“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” (Luke 1:38)  God is calling you today. God may be calling you to a role that is exciting or to a place that the world may deem as “ordinary”. That is not what is important. What is important is that God is calling you to be exactly who he created you to be when he knit you together in your mother’s womb. When God created you, Continue reading Calling

Humility

Humility is the fear of the Lord; its wages are riches and honor and life. (Prov 22:4) As the cloud lifted, there she stood covered in leprous sores, like a newborn infant coming from its mother’s womb with its flesh half eaten. Next to her, he knelt, praying that the Lord would heal his sister for speaking out against his leadership. Is it any wonder that Moses was known for being the most humble man on earth? (Numbers 12) One Continue reading Humility

Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long,and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders. (Deut 33:12) It had been a long busy day for Jesus and his disciples. It was night-time and they were crossing over to the other side of the Sea of Galilee. Jesus was resting peacefully in the back of the boat when suddenly a huge storm descended from out of nowhere. As Creator, he Continue reading Rest
