    Just Believe God

    II Chronicles 20 is one of those epic chapters that’s stuffed full of lessons to be learned. For your time sake, I will try to get directly to the main points. In the beginning of the chapter, we see that the children of Moab and the children of Ammonites (a great multitude) united together to battle against Jehoshaphat, king of Judah. (vs. 1,2) Was Jehoshaphat’s first response to this situation, “I’m going to show them who they’re messing with!”? No, his first response was just like our own human flesh would respond. He had FEAR. Most of the time, we’re going to have this same fleshly response because life can…

    Good Morning, Lord!

    “My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.” – Psalm 5:3 KJV This simple Bible verse of David’s psalm spoke volumes to my heart this week. There’s three simple points that I would like to share with you from my perspective. 1. Prayer was a priority for David. David prayed in the morning — before getting side-tracked with other activities of his day. He didn’t neglect to say, “Good morning, Lord!” “Thank you for your goodness and your mercies.” (Psalm 145:9) “Thank you for another day.” (Psalm 118:24) We, too, have a wonderful privilege…

    Step Away! Step Away!

    *Reference for Bible reading: John 4:46-53 Shortly after Jesus had arrived in Galilee, a nobleman from Capernaum journeyed nearly 40 miles in pursuit of Jesus’ help. We don’t know much about this man (other than he was a man of noble rank), but we do know the story is important enough to be recorded in our Bible history, which tells us there is some important biblical truths to learn from the story. Today, I’m focusing on just one simple truth. This nobleman’s mission was an urgent matter, something especially dear to his heart. He had a very sick son. With the upcoming Father’s Day this month, I think he might…

    Our View Versus God’s View

    Monday morning, as my hubby and I were traveling, the weather was grey, wet and drizzly. It wasn’t the picture-perfect-sunshiny kind of day. The gloom weighed upon us while driving, and yet, there was a sliver of peace resting in the atmosphere. I looked far ahead to view the horizon. There in the long distant, you could see the sun shining radiantly. There was a town or city, numerous miles ahead, that was enjoying a bright, gleeful day. This reminded me of life’s trials — our view versus God’s view. Although we may look at the gloomy present surrounding us, God clearly sees what’s ahead to give us an expected,…

    Why is it Important to Tell the Truth?

    Why is it Important to Tell the Truth? View TV shows, movies, videos, books and social media posts, and you will see an ungodly trend. You’ll see that it’s supposedly cute to twist or stretch the truth, completely hide the truth and even get away with telling sneaky lies. Some even wear their achievements like a badge of honor. If we’re not careful, we can find ourselves laughing along with these plots and start feeling like it’s not that big of a deal. But in TRUTH…. There is nothing cute or clever about telling a lie — even if you get away with it at the moment. And by the…
