Give them someone who will guide them wherever they go and will lead them into battle, so the community of the LORD will not be like a sheep without a shepherd. Numbers 27:17

The other day I saw a family sticker on the back of a car, it wasn’t the usual stick figure type this had a large Dad sheep, a medium size Mom sheep, a small sheep grazing to the left of the parents on the windshield and a black sheep grazing to the right. I couldn’t help but laugh knowing h...

…”When you see the Levitical priest carrying the Ark of the Covenant of the LORD your God, move out from your positions and follow them. Since you have never traveled this way before, they will guide you. Stay about a half a mile behind them, keeping a clear distance between you and the Ark. Make sure you don’t come any closer.” Joshua 3:3-4

This morning I was honored to be a witness at a high school graduation ceremony. When the honors were given I...

May all who fear you find in me a cause for joy, for I have put my hope in Your Word. Psalm 119:74

The other night a pastor talked about being ready to explain your hope using 1 Peter 3:15 when it says “you must worship Christ as the Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it.” In his teaching he shared that we live in a world where there is little hope in God and the reason for that is the lives of followers o...

Sometime later, the LORD spoke to Abram in a vision and said to him, “Do not be afraid, Abram, for I will protect you, and your reward will be great.” Genesis 15:1

Abram replied to God in verse 2 “O Sovereign LORD, what good are these blessings when I don’t even have a son?” In Genesis 4:5-6 Then the LORD said to him, “No, your servant will not be your heir, for you will have a son of your own who will be your heir.” Then the LORD t...

Submit to God’s royal son, or he will be angry, and you will be destroyed in the midst of all your activities- for his anger flares up in an instant. But what joy for all who take refuge in him! 2:12

I submit to Jesus because I know that nothing I could ever do from this very moment on can be enough to make up for all the wrong I have done. Leviticus 17:11 explains that the life of the body is in its blood. It is the blood on the altar that purifies us making us right ...

As long as the earth remains, there will be planting and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night. Genesis 8:22

I read this verse today and thought as long as I remain on the earth, my life will always consist of planting and harvesting. Reaping and sowing, in other words the fruit in my life will be the result of what I think, speak and do in my life. My actions are never completely random. I thought about them before I did the things I did. I even spoke abo...

Always be joyful. 1 Thessalonians 5:16

There is a joy that comes from knowing from the moment I wake up that God is with me. That I don’t have to go about this day alone. He is beside me, He goes before me, He is all around me. For He said in Leviticus 26:11 I will live among you, and I will not despise you. I will walk among you; I will be your God and you will be my people. So when I wake up it doesn’t cost a thing for me smile knowing something most don’...

Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. Philippians 4:11

“I have learned to be content” Paul writes. In other words contentment is not something I am just naturally born to be, it is something I have to decide to be, learn to be. Content is defined as a state of peaceful happiness. Can you imagine going through life content. Being un-phased by whatever comes our way.

Yet true godliness with conten...

Because you have obeyed my command to persevere, I will protect you from the great time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to the world. Revelation 3:10

My Father commands me to persevere. This word is defined as “to continue in a course of action even in the face of difficulty or with little or no prospect of success.” Yesterday I needed strength today I need to persevere. To keep going even when I want to give up and give in...

So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you. Deuteronomy 31:6

This is my command- be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

Then David continued, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my...
