For you said to yourself, ‘I will ascend to heaven and set my throne above God’s stars. I will preside on the mountain of the gods far away in the north.*(Or on the heights of Zaphon) I will climb to the highest heavens and be like the Most High.’ Isaiah 14:13-14

Ah the power of the word “I” the other day my teenage son was sharing his plans for his future and all I heard was the word “I” as in I want this, I want that, I will do thi...

The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked. Proverbs 24:16

I tripped yesterday. The sin that so easily trips me up is wasted time. Yesterday started great, I got up early took my sister to work, came home about the time I would have usually have awaken on my own. I read my devotionals, shared them with H and even blogged right after. I was done just in time to wake my son for the day and start him off with a...

For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1

I am in a season of change this summer. I invited my sister to move into our home the beginning of last month. So making room for her and ensuring that her needs are met has kept my days busy. Then my son has decided this is the year he would test his boundaries and in the last month God has revealed to him that no matter how far he may stray from his path that he is never alone. As t...

Jesus replied, “There are twelve hours of daylight every day. During the day people can walk safely. They can see because they have the light of this world. But at night there is a danger of stumbling because they have no light.” John 11:9-10

Lately I haven’t been making it to greet the night before I am falling asleep. The day light hangs around just past 830pm. I wake around 5am because of the light so by this time of the night my body is happy to retire...

While pulling weeds the other day I started thinking how relentless they are as I tugged and pulled them out a place they have no business being. Although their roots were shallow in the rock bed it didn’t make sense that I actually had to use the weight of my body to pull these suckers out of the ground. And I was reminded that although shallow they had a stronghold perhaps another root system they were hanging onto, as does with my own sins.

The first mention of the ...

For you are free, yet you are God’s slaves, so don’t use your freedom as an excuse to do evil. 1 Peter 2:16

As I celebrate this day being born in a place known for freedom I am also reminded that though I have lived here all 40 something years of my life I have only been free from the evil things I did for the last decade give or take a year.

So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free. John 8:36

The word free or some form ...

I heard an unknown voice say, “Now I will take the load from your shoulders; I will free your hands from their heavy tasks.” Psalm 81:5-6

Been traveling this past 4 day weekend. My travels began in darkness in the early hours of the morning before sunrise on Friday morning. Over a 12 hour span I rode in a car, a train, a plane, a shuttle bus and drove for 4 hours to reach my destination. Today I will do the same in reverse. In the early morning hours my drive...

The other day I was reminded of the prophet Elijah and the many miracles he witnessed performed how in in 1 Kings 17 he told King Ahab that “As surely as the LORD, the God of Israel, lives- the God I serve- there will be no dew or rain during the next few years until I give word!” and sure enough he stayed true to His Word because it didn’t rain till verse 18:45. How God sent the ravens to feed him in 17:4 and he drank water from the nearby brook for strength. When God sent ...

You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy, that I might sing praises to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever! Psalm 30:11

I weep as I type those words. For the last few weeks I have spent more time with my big sister than I have in these 25 years. The enemy took her from me, stole those years from us. He had her enslaved and though she was set “free” for a y...

This new system was established with a solemn oath. Aaron’s descendants became priests without such an oath, but there was an oath regarding Jesus. For God said to him, “The LORD has taken an oath and will not break his vow: ‘You are a priest forever.’” (Quoted from Psalm 110:4 that adds “in the order of Melchizdek” who is the priest mentioned in Genesis 14:14-24 who blessed Abraham) Because of this oath, Jesus is the one who guarantees this better c...
