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[…]

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[…]

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[…]

MIX IT

“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[…]

DIVINE EXPECTANCY

Now faith is the substance of things hoped (expected) for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 Expecting a child is an exciting thing, but I can only imagine what it must have been like for Mary! She knew the truth of how it all happened, but no one else in town was buying it. If it had not been for the Angelic encounter, even Joseph would have called off the wedding.  I’m sure she wondered, “How will this whole thing turn out?” Once I recall having a knot in my stomach that just wouldn’t go away so and[…]

THE DISTINCTION

“For God’s will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time.” Hebrews 10:10 The U.S. Marines share a comradery like no other. Some say this distinction comes from their hard training, rich history, tradition, or uniforms but most Marines would tell you that this distinction starts with their very symbol, the “Eagle Globe and Anchor.” The EGA is only given to a young recruit after they’ve earned it and it symbolizes and embodies everything Marine and is proudly worn. Moses had been raised up by God to deliver[…]

“Therefore, he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf.” Hebrews 7:25   Shrouded in mystique and exclusivity the US Supreme Court decides cases that impact American’s day to day lives like none other. And, among all this mystique is an exclusive group of about 65 lawyers that are said to be among the top attorneys in the land. Considering that the court only hears about 75 out of 10,000 petitions they receive annually, these “top attorneys” are supposedly at the top of their game[…]
