THE LAMB

“Then Moses called all the elders of Israel together and said to them, “Go, pick out a lamb or young goat for each of your families, and slaughter the Passover animal.” Exodus 12:21  Each lamb was handpicked and brought into their homes; they followed the instructions the Lord had given through Moses to take special care of it. Over the next four days, that precious little lamb became a part of the family.  So, it was without joy, but rather with broken hearts, that the man of the house put the knife to the lamb to shed its blood. That blood,[…]

THE GREATEST SHOW

“I’ve also done it, so you can tell your children and grandchildren about how I made a mockery of the Egyptians and about the signs I displayed among them—and so you will know that I am the Lord.” Exodus 10:2  Whenever the big train rolled into the city and the Big Top was erected, thousands would flock to see the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which was hailed by many as “The Greatest Show on Earth.” I’m sure it was a sight to see, but nothing has ever compared to the show God Himself put on in Egypt, as[…]

YOU CAN!

“Who may climb the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place?” Psalm 24:3  David asked two very important questions in Psalm 24: “Who may climb the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place?” Then David answered these questions in verse four by saying, “Only those whose hands and hearts are pure, who do not worship idols and never tell lies.” The three things that David points out as qualifications for one to come into the Lord’s presence, no one could keep. Throughout all of Israel, there would never be one found whose hands and heart[…]

RESTORING YOUR SOUL

“He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.”  Psalm 23:2 One sunny Eastern Carolina afternoon, I headed out for a visit to Goose Creek State Park to do the 7-mile wooded trail walk. My heart was full of anticipation as I was asking the Lord for an encounter, and particularly, I was asking Him to restore my soul. Just that morning I had heard one of my favorite Christian speakers talking about how we needed to let go of all pretenses and just be real with the Father, so that’s exactly what I[…]

AGREE

“I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.” Matthew 18:19  Some time ago I was seeing God do some incredible things that were bringing expansion in my life in both business and ministry, and at the very same time I found myself under intense attack in both areas. It didn’t take me long to realize that I was in the cross hairs of my adversary and that he wanted to stop the forward progress I was experiencing. Right away I began to seek[…]

THE CRY

“They cried out to you and were saved. They trusted in you and were never disgraced.” Psalm 22:5   Desperate situations can cause one to cry out to God from the depths of despair. And sometimes it can seem in those dark moments that God is nowhere to be found and that our cries for help fall to the ground, but such is not the case. Exodus 2:23 tells us that the “Hebrews groaned under the burden of slavery and cried out for help, and their cries rose up to God.” Verses 24 and 25 say, “God heard their groanings, and[…]

THE ROCK

“Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.” Matthew 16:19 Quora.com sites that, “In places around the world, the Rock of Gibraltar has always been used as a symbol of strength and resilience. Such symbolism most likely derives from the famous resilience of the Rock, when faced with the 13 Spanish sieges which it resisted during the 18th century.” Even the financial services company Prudential has used “the rock” for decades in its logo, along with its[…]

KEEP IT STRAIGHT

“Look straight ahead and fix your eyes on what lies before you.” Proverbs 4:25 When it comes to mowing, you especially want to keep the rows straight. It just makes the yard look a lot better when the lines are straight, and for large yards that can be a challenge. I remember trying really hard to keep the rows straight when cutting that large acreage, and it seemed no matter how hard I tried, I would inevitably look back to see them crooked. Finally, I had an idea: find something at the end of the row to look at. Sometimes[…]

THE WINNING SIDE

“Dear woman,” Jesus said to her, “your faith is great. Your request is granted.” And her daughter was instantly healed. Matthew 15:28   Today, more and more believers are realizing that the “preaching of the Law” as the “way” to live the Christian life is the wrong side, and instead “the Law of the Spirit” and the “Gospel of Grace” is the right side. John 1:17 says, “For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness (grace and truth) came through Jesus Christ.” The Apostle Paul told us that the Law could only point out our faults but was[…]

SUPER ON YOUR NATURAL

“They all ate as much as they wanted, and afterward, the disciples picked up twelve baskets of leftovers.”  Matthew 14:20 Anything “superhero” is all the rage and has been for decades. In the early days, superhero comic books would fly off the shelves almost as fast as store managers could get them out, and now, even today, superhero movies continue to set box office records. So why so much interest in the world of superheroes? Could it be there’s something in us that just simply loves the idea of man being enabled to do something superhuman? Scripture is full of[…]
