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[…]

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 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[…]

OUR STRONG TOWER

 “The name of the Lord is a strong fortress;     the godly run to him and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10   Most all of us can remember being afraid of “the boogie man” when we were children. For me, he was that invisible monster under my bead. I can remember walking out of my room, turning out the lights and then making a bee-line straight to my dad’s leg on which I’d wrap myself around. Turning back to that dark bedroom I would stick my tongue out toward “the monster.” It was my childlike way of letting the boogie man know I was safe[…]

REST FOR THE WEARY

“Then Jesus said, ‘Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest’.”   Matthew 11:28 As John the Baptist found himself wasting away in prison his disappointed and weary heart led him to question things.  Was Jesus actually the Messiah at all? Where do you turn when life’s circumstances and disappointments leave you weary? The answer isn’t found in our enemy and the things of this world, and it sure isn’t found in doubting or questioning our faith. The answers can only be found in Jesus Himself. There will be times and[…]

EVER WATCHING

“So, don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.” Matthew 10:31 According to People.com, “A Southern California man was in for a howling surprise recently when he rescued what he believed to be a puppy and soon discovered that it was no snuggly house pet after all. While walking his dog in a canyon area on the man came across an abandoned furry creature, Darriel Walker, a representative at San Diego Human Society, tells PEOPLE. With no hesitation, Walker says the man brought the little “puppy” back home before the Humane Society arrived[…]

STANDING ON THE PROMISES

“The words and promises of the Lord are pure words, Like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified seven times.” Psalm 12:6  As a young sheep herder, Russell Carter developed a serious heart condition and felt that if God did not heal him, he would surely die. Russell grabbed hold of healing promises throughout scripture, fervently taking his stand in believing God for his complete and total healing. Russell did indeed experience that healing and vowed to be used by God in any way the Lord wanted. He later went on from sheep herding to become a professor of Natural Science, Civil Engineering, Chemistry[…]

DIVINE COMPLETENESS

“As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at his tax collector’s booth. “Follow me and be my disciple,” Jesus said to him. So, Matthew got up and followed him.” Matthew 9:9 Matthew was missing something, and he knew. Yes, he had the cushy tax collector job that netted him some great cash flow, but on the inside, he knew there had to be something more to life. That “more” came along one day in the form of a person and that person Jesus came with a call. The number nine in scripture represents Divine completeness, and in[…]
