BE MERCIFUL

 

God is merciful, and if we want to please Him, then we must be too.  And I guarantee you that there are enough “jerks” sprinkled among us, that being merciful isn’t always easy to do.  Yet I think of how we treat the LORD many times, and I’m amazed He hasn’t made crispy critters out of most of us.  God nearly destroyed all of mankind back in the flood, and only Noah and his family were spared.  Here we are thousands of years later, and I’m wondering how God can put up with us even another day.  It isn’t going to be pretty when He decides to deal with mankind’s evil.

FEAST OR FAMINE

 

Let me listen to someone for a few minutes, and I can tell you if their life is feast or famine.  It doesn’t take very long at all to get an accurate picture, and if you don’t believe me, just be quiet and listen to the next person you meet. Continue Reading »

ENDURE UNTO THE END

 

What is the definition of “ENDURE”?  It is a verb, denoting action, meaning to carry on through despite hardships or misfortune without yielding, to put up with, suffering, to tolerate, to continue to exist, to last.  Now, that’s what the Lord Jesus had in mind when He was asked what would be the sign of His coming, and the end of the world.

KEEPING TIME

 

All my life I have been very interested in watches, and was doing watch repair by age nine, and my dad was a watchmaker as a hobby. I was always fascinated by all the moving parts in a watch, how every one of them worked together as a team to keep the watch running on time.  In fact, the gears are called the “gear train”, like from engine to caboose on a train.

THAT STILL SMALL VOICE

 

Have you ever wished you had “inside information” about things you face in life?  I’m sure you have.  Investors want that every day so they’re able to make money.  Should we be so different from investors?  Indeed, we should want to be on the inside track concerning everything we do. Nobody wants to be the caboose on the train of life.  It’s hard living in reaction to every bad thing that comes up in life, and there are many that live that way.  It would be much better knowing ahead of time about trouble, and being able to avoid it.  And we CAN be.

OVERCOMING FEAR

Today, when asking the LORD what to write,  the subject of “fear” came up.  Fear, you know, when you read something or hear something or see something that makes your stomach turn over and you start to shake all over, and that hot feeling comes all over you…yes, THAT fear.  We’ve all been there, and it isn’t a nice feeling, and God doesn’t want us to experience it ever again.

TAKING STOCK OF THINGS

We should often take stock of our situation and make whatever corrections are necessary to maintain things in the direction we desire them to go.  The Bible tells us in Proverbs 27:23-24, Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds.  For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? Continue Reading »

A LINE IN THE SAND

There’s a lot of bad stuff going on in the earth today, and we see it all around us, fires, floods, earthquakes, all kinds of disasters, not to mention all the strife between people of every nation. Well, it should show us where we’re at in the timeline of the Bible. It is written in Revelation 12:7-12,

FEAR NOT

Just as I’m getting ready to write about “fear not”, the TV just issued a tornado warning for my area. I’m not impressed. This isn’t my first rodeo. We have been in tornados before and rebuked them in the name of Christ Jesus, and watched them dissipate on the spot. And a passage of scripture comes to mind about the forces of heaven being more than the forces of the devil, in 2 Kings 6:8-17,

BE NOT SHAKEN

Many people I talk to are really worried about how things are going in the world. Lots of changes in our lives have taken place over the past year, changes in government, people trying to take our freedom from us, with fear mongers spreading lies and fear. With Covid making people sick with some dying, our children being forced to stay home from school, people losing jobs, businesses closing, things have looked pretty dismal. And we are just now a year and a half later starting to come out of it, but things are no where near back to “normal”. Many tell us things will never be back as they were before.
