DOUBLE ANCHORED

“So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us.”  Hebrews 6:18   The salt air and warm sun set the stage for what I was hoping to be a relaxing kayak fishing trip. I knew the area pretty well and figured if I could anchor my kayak near enough to the channel, I would cast into the area with the hope of reeling in[…]

EVEN WHEN WE DIDN’T KNOW

“O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.”  Hosea 14:8  At the 11-month mark, I’ve watched our little son, Jonas, grow in many ways, and it’s all largely because he has a mom who loves him dearly. He’s growing physically and intellectually all because she takes great care to make sure he eats well, and she takes time to play with him and teach him every day. I don’t know to what degree he understands this[…]

REST FOR THE RESTLESS

“Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.”  Hebrews 4:11 The words “labor” and “rest” aren’t typically associated with one another. Most would consider them two extremes. But the writer of Hebrews uses these words together to make a life-changing point. In Hebrew, the word “labor” is the word spoudazō, and it means to hasten, make haste, and to be diligent. So, what exactly is the writer hoping we understand? Simply that we are to be quick to “rest” in the finished work of Jesus. We are to cease[…]

HOLY HUSBAND

“I will be faithful to you and make you mine, and you will finally know me as the LORD.” Hosea 2:20  We had just grilled some delicious hot dogs for the fourth of July, and the next night, with three franks left over, we were all out of hot dog buns. Have you ever noticed how the number of franks in a pack and the number of buns in a pack don’t usually match up? I digress, lol. But, when she mentioned she’d like a hot dog, without hesitation I told my wife to hold on a minute and I would[…]

HIGH AND LIFTED UP

“In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple.” Isaiah 6:1  One can only imagine what Isaiah saw. It’s not until crossing over to Heaven that one can behold the beauty and magnificent splendor of God. Yet Isaiah was privileged to get a sneak peek of God’s glory, awe, and majesty, all of which came about after something left the scene. What was that “something” you may be wondering? It was pride! And that pride was in the form of a person. Notice the key[…]

SONGS OF THE REDEEMED

“I love the Lord, for he heard my cry. He heard my call for mercy. I love the Lord, for He’s been so good to me, I will honor Him as long as I live.” Psalm 116 It was an experience like I had never known. There I was, surrounded by twenty-thousand men all with lifted hands, praising God and singing songs of worship to Him. The 1990’s Promise Keepers movement was real, and it swept across the country, bringing men together from across denominational lines for a life-changing weekend of worship, teaching and fellowship. Many of us, having never[…]

FROM A GLIMMER TO GLORIOUS

“Come now, let’s settle this,” says the Lord “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool. Isaiah 1:18 A “glimmer” is defined as a faint flicker, to shine faintly or unsteadily, a twinkle, or a shimmer, and that’s exactly where Judah had found themselves because of their rebellion and sin. The light was almost out in regard to God’s patience over a people who had completely turned their backs on Him. And, although their “religious practices” continued, their heart were far from[…]

All and You

“For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people.” Titus 2:11 Do you ever stop, from time to time, and think about God’s vast creation? From the sun, moon, and highest, most magnificent mountain to the depths of the sea, it’s all so truly amazing!  And all of His creation, and every living creature in it, both big and small, speaks to His majesty and glory. Psalm 104:24-25 illustrates this well, stating: O Lord, what a variety of things you have made! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your creatures. Here[…]

IF WE ONLY ASK

“O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,  so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.”Psalm 86:5  Our ten-month-old has this new thing where he doesn’t want Mom to feed him anymore, but instead only prefers to eat what he can pick up and put in his mouth himself. It’s such a cute thing, but it’s got my wife wondering what kind of food options that gives her right now considering he only has two little bottom teeth that have popped in. It’s amazing to me the things you don’t have to teach a little[…]

CELEBRATE YOUR TEAM

Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction? Amos 3:3  We’ve all been given a Divine task, assignment and/or purpose here on earth, and the truth is it’s impossible to accomplish it alone. Whether your assignment is to raise godly children, be a godly CEO of a corporation, or whatever your calling may be, you and I are going to always need the help of others in this endeavor. Thankfully God sends us those folks which may come in the form of a husband, a vice president and so on. These are “right hand” people sent by our[…]
