THANKSGIVING VERSES

Ezra 3:11 “With praise and thanksgiving they sang to the Lord: “He is good; his love toward Israel endures forever.” And all the people gave a great shout of praise to the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.”   Psalm 7:17 “I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness; I will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most High.”   Psalm 9:1 “I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.”   Psalm 35:18 “I will give you[…]

MERCY AND GRACE

You have done many good things for me, Lord, just as you promised. Psalm 119:65 In 2 Samuel 11-12, we see that David committed the two “biggies.” Not only did he commit adultery, which is pretty bad, but he also committed murder. According to the Levitical Law, David should have been drug out to the center of the city and stoned to death. There was no ambiguity in the law when it talked about an “eye for an eye.” And, when David finally did repent for these heinous sins, it wasn’t like he did it on his own. No, he[…]

DIVINE SHOWOFF

“But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Peter 2:9 God is always good! We see this in 2 Kings 20 and Isaiah 38 as God allows Hezekiah to know that he would be passing away so that he could get his affairs in order. And we see God’s goodness again as He grants Hezekiah 15 more years after he turned[…]

COME TO THE TABLE

“Remember your promise to me; it is my only hope.” Psalm 119:49  In 2 Samuel 9 we see the story of Mephibosheth, son of Jonathan and grandson of King Saul. As a young child, Mephibosheth was dropped by his caretaker as she fled Israel at the news of Saul and Jonathan’s deaths, and now he was crippled and lived in constant fear in Lo-debar. He lived in fear because of the assumption that if King David knew he was alive, then he would surely want to kill him so that he would never be a threat to David’s throne. But[…]

WHEN THE ANSWER COMES KNOCKING

“The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” James 5:16 Have you ever prayed for something so long and so hard, that when it finally showed up, it shocked you? It can definitely happen! I know in my own life, there’s been something near and dear to my heart that I’ve been praying about for a very long time, and as the answer finally showed up, it was a shock to my system.  It all seemed so surreal as the “answer to my prayer” answered back. The same thing happened to a young girl[…]

ONLY ASK

“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.” James 1:5   When our youngest was about ten months old he got into this new thing where he didn’t want his mom to feed him anymore, but instead only preferred to eat what he could pick up and put in his mouth himself. It was such a cute thing, but it had my wife wondering what kind of food options she had to give him considering he had only two little bottom teeth.  It’s amazing to me the[…]

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 116:1 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[…]

EVEN IF

So, we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?” Hebrews 13:6 Never had the furnace been so hot, but King Nebuchadnezzar, in his anger and rage, ordered that it be fired up seven times hotter than it had ever been. In fact, it was so hot that the guards who threw Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego into the furnace perished from the heat. What caused the king to be so enraged? It was simply the fact that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused to bow down to[…]

EYEBALLS

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2 This may be one of those analogies that is difficult to relate to, but I clearly remember being in Marine Corps Boot Camp and hearing the command our drill instructor gave when he wanted everyone to look at him. In a loud, authoritative voice he would yell, “Eyeballs,” to which all seventy-some recruits would reply, “Snap Sir,” as we[…]

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 Growing up I was blessed to have two grandmas who each knew how to make some good biscuits, and their specialty was “Cat Head Biscuits.” Now I understand if that name doesn’t sound too appetizing, but those biscuits got their name because they were the size of a cat’s head. They were hand formed, without a biscuit cutter, and baked in a round pan. Once done, you could pull those flaky biscuits apart and throw a slab of butter and your favorite jam[…]
