WHAT SHE SAW

“When the queen of Sheba had seen all the wisdom of Solomon, and the house (palace) which he had built, 5 the food on his table, the seating of his servants (court officials), the attendance of his waiters and their attire, his cupbearers, his stairway by which he went up to the house (temple) of the Lord, she was breathless and awed [by the wonder of it all].” 1 Kings 10:4-5 AMP Some years ago, I was tasked with remodeling an area in the church I was pastoring, so I set out to get ideas that would help me create the perfect look. Walls had been torn[…]

YOUR BEST FRIEND

“So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.”  Romans 5:11  Do you have a best friend? Someone you love hanging out with and who’s there for you anytime, night or day? Someone that you can come to and just simply be yourself with, with absolutely no need for pretense? Someone who loves you unconditionally and whose love is something in which you feel secure and never doubt? If you have a person like that in your life, then without a doubt you have a tremendous blessing![…]

GOD’S PLATFORM

“Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sins are put out of sight. Yes, what joy for those whose record the Lord has cleared of sin.” Romans 4:7-8 During election season, political candidates begin to pop out of the wood work. In a recent presidential primary, there were well over twenty candidates all vying for their party’s nomination for President. Most often these candidates come with their own specific platform. Whether it’s health care, raising the minimum wage, border security, foreign affairs, or any other plethora of ideas, most candidates will have a primary platform on which they choose[…]

THE SPOT

“The priests could not continue their service because of the cloud, for the glorious presence of the Lord filled the Temple of God.”   2 Chronicles 5:14 Most everyone enjoys traveling, visiting and enjoying different places and locals. My wife and I were just recently talking about one of our favorite trips together and how we would love to experience that again. Traveling can be fun and relaxing, depending on the destination, but Dorothy was right when she said, “There’s no place like home.”  After a trip, getaway, or excursion, it’s always nice to get back home. There’s something about the “getting away”[…]

SHOUT TO THE LORD

“Shout to the Lord, all the earth;break out in praise and sing for joy!” Psalm 98:4 Darlene Zschech, in her book “Shout to the Lord”writes, “I think God just means some songs to be written. It’s very embarrassing when people expect some big, dramatic story about a song God gave me in a time when I just needed to hear from Him. I was simply in the right place at the right time. It just happened to come out of my personal worship time with the Lord. Desperate for His peace, I opened to the Psalms. I sat at our old out-of-tune piano[…]

GOD’S PRIZE PATROL

“Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority as apostles to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey him, bringing glory to his name.”  Romans 1:5  I love seeing those Publishers Clearinghouse Sweepstakes commercials! Maybe it’s because I get lost for just a moment in the thought of what it would like to get that knock at my door and a fellow holding one of those big checks that say’s something like, “$5,000 A Week for Life.” Second to the recipient, the other thing that is really cool about that[…]

SANDWICHED BY GRACE

“May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.”  2 Thessalonians 3:18 Here in the South there’s nothing like a good sandwich. And here, a really good sandwich doesn’t have to be complicated, only a few basic components are necessary. Particularly in the spring and summer, you can choose pretty much any kind of filler or meat you like, but for me Dukes Mayonnaise is a must, a brand not widely seen around all parts of the country. And along with that Dukes Mayonnaise, fresh garden tomatoes this time of year are pretty awesome, with just a[…]

THE PRINCIPAL THING

“He called you to salvation when we told you the Good News; now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  2 Thessalonians 2:14  In 1 Kings 3 and 2 Chronicles 1, Solomon begins his reign as Israel’s third king by worshiping the Lord, and it wasn’t just any kind of worship!  By offering over 1,000 animal sacrifices to the Lord, it was an extraordinary, extravagant worship. The kind of worship that invoked a response from the Lord that came in the form of a visit through a vision and included a question. The question to Solomon from the[…]

PASS IT ON

“The people rejoiced over the offerings, for they had given freely and wholeheartedly to the Lord, and King David was filled with joy.”  1 Chronicles 29:9 In 1 Kings 2 and 2 Chronicles 29, King David comes to the end of his life here on earth. His reign over Israel as their second king had been a long and fruitful period. 1 Chronicles 29:28 says,“He died at a ripe old age, having enjoyed long life, wealth, and honor. Then his son Solomon ruled in his place.” Just as Solomon was about to take the helm, his father David offered him some great advice.[…]

BETTER THAN 911

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most HighWill remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].”  Psalm 91:1 (AMP) In the sparcly populated county in Eastern North Carolina where I live, our 911 Call Center Telecommunicators have undergone some significant training in recent years resulting in lives saved. Not to long ago our local Telecommunicators underwent intensive training in the Emergency Medical Dispatch Interface which allows them to interact with the callers to the 911 center, by giving them medical instructions to assist victims of heart attacks, strokes, choking, childbirth and more. This training has resulted in[…]
