Make Room

A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men. Proverbs 18:16 No greater story illustrates the above Proverb any more than the story of the women in 2 Kings 4, who built a room on her home for the Prophet Elisha.  One day when Elisha and his servant passed through her town, she invited them to her home for a meal and gave Elisha an open invitation to “come by and eat whenever you’re passing through.” Where I come from we call that “Southern Hospitality” and it’s a real thing, even though inviting passersby over for[…]

Keep Pouring

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Luke 6:38 The widow woman, needing a financial miracle after her late husband had left her drowning in a sea of debt, was given clear instructions from God through the Prophet Elisha: “And Elisha said, “Borrow as many empty jars as you can from your friends and neighbors. Then go into your house with your sons and shut the door behind you. Pour olive[…]

The Master Marketer

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8 So I’ve wondered at times, “God, didn’t you know that when you called me to launch a commercial FM music station that it would require me to sell advertising, and I HATE TO SELL?? I’ve had people tell me, “you could sell anything” to which I’ve never quite agreed. If I’ve had success at selling, and by His[…]

Shut the Door

I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. 1 Timothy 2:8    Don’t be surprised when you come to God with your need and He leads you to do something that may seem beyond belief. That’s, exactly what the widow in 2 Kings 4 may have thought, but her desperate situation called for desperate obedience to God’s instructions. The truth was she had nothing to loose. She had to get out of the desperate place of debt that her deceased husband had left her in and there was simply no room for doubting.[…]

More Than Enough

And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 2 Corinthians 9:8New (NLT) Have you ever found yourself in a place where you felt like you had nothing? That’s exactly how the widow in 2 Kings 4 felt. After her husband passed away and she was left with a mountain of debt she felt desperate. When she came to Elisha for help, his question to her was “What do you have?” And, first her response was “nothing.” Then she said “except a small jar of[…]

The Voice

And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. 1 Kings 19:12  It didn’t matter that he had just called fire down from heaven and prophesied a downpour breaking a three year drought. For some reason, one threat from Jezebel sent Elijah reeling. He felt confused, bewildered, depressed, dejected and ready to give up, on the heels of an amazing victory. We needn’t think that our adversary will just sit idly by and watch us dismantle his kingdom without at least the threat of terror. But the[…]

The Secret

For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory. Colossians 1:27 According to Dictionary.com one of the definitions for the word “Secret” is, “beyond ordinary human understanding.” Some translations of Colossians 1:27 call it a “mystery,” but the New Living Translation calls it a “Secret.” So what’s the “Secret” you may ask?” It’s the Good News! It’s the Good News that we have been made right with God, once and for all, because of the[…]

Greater Love

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God. Ephesians 5:2 NLT Jeff was living his dream of being a Marine Pilot and flying for the legendary Blue Angels. Everyone knew Jeff to be loyal, kind, compassionate and a loving father and husband. Life couldn’t have been better for Jeff as he had so much to live for. But, on a recent afternoon his life was cut short. Not because someone took his life, but because he gave it. As his aircraft[…]

Full Of

“He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.”  Ephesians 4:16 You’ve heard the phrase, “running around like a chicken with your head cut off.” Well, it should have scarred me for life the day I saw that happen “for real!” As a ten-year-old boy I’ll never forget seeing my granddaddy grab one of the chickens in his back yard and chop his head off. That chicken, which we would later eat for dinner,[…]

Now all glory to God, who is able to make you strong, just as my Good News says. This message about Jesus Christ has revealed his plan for you Gentiles, a plan kept secret from the beginning of time. Romans 16:25 (NLT) The Apostle Paul makes a cameo mention of a lady in Romans 16:1 by the name of Phoebe. Although we don’t know a lot about her we know that she was entrusted by Paul to take his letter to the Church at Rome and present it to them. With that said, she most likely read his letter to[…]
