October 15, 2019 – Offer Living Water

October 15, 2019 – Offer Living Water

Our culture wants to discourage believers by dispelling the claims of the Bible. Many of the social icons within this nation are a host of blasphemers and hypocrites. Our societal norms have been adjusted to accept all kinds of behavior that only two decades ago would have been ludicrous. Even a few of those running for political offices around the country deny that our moral compass is off. It would seem that getting the vote is more important than taking a stand. Some suggest that charisma is more important than character.

October 8, 2019 – The Big Catch

How is your faith? Are you willing to be an obedient disciple and follow Jesus? Take the rod of obedience, the line of faith, and the hook of perseverance, and follow the Lord’s leading in your life. The catch of a lifetime awaits you.

September 24, 2019 – Fathers

It is human nature to assume and expect that those things we cherish most will always be with us. Many folks are so caught up in their careers that they don’t take time to really show their appreciation to others, especially their parents. I’m thankful that the Lord gave me almost four months during my dad’s battle with cancer to “get it right”.

September 17, 2019 – Battling Bitterness

I find it easy to sympathize with Hannah in her misery. I suspect all of us have down times, when life seems dark and empty, as if everything has gone wrong, and we are poignantly aware of how unfair it all is. Bitterness can set in when we face the injustices and pain of this world. If allowed to take root in our hearts, it’s very destructive.

September 10, 2019 – A Bitter Pill

When faced with something unpleasant, we usually do everything we can to avoid it. We’d surely spit it out if we could. Even when we know it’ll be good for us, that we need it, we often resist. How about dental check-ups, spring cleaning, or studying for an important exam? How about confronting that guy at work, asking for forgiveness, or forgiving? And sometimes we just don’t understand. We don’t really know what we need. God does though, and sometimes it’s a bitter pill.

September 3, 2019 – Parachute

The apostle Paul told the new Christians in Thessalonica to be supportive of one another. He especially wanted them to bless and mentor those who were sharing the Gospel in that area. His words still ring true today. We need to be encouraging one another, especially those in the household of faith (other believers).

August 27, 2019 – Do You See the Glass Half Empty?

Yes, the state of our nation’s political process is in despair. Yes, we wish the wars were over so our brave troops could come home. Yes, our leaders have let us down. But in all this there is so much to be thankful for. Knowing Christ and living in a free America has so many benefits… Instead of tracking with the pessimists, let’s remind ourselves that our greatest hope and dreams can be realized in Christ Jesus.

August 6, 2019 – Do You Believe in Miracles?

In this fast-paced, high-tech world some people have forgotten that God is in the business of making miracles. Mankind has explored the depths of the universe and the bottom of the seas. We have modified DNA and created artificial parts for the human body. Through technology, we can supply an endless stream of information and artificial intelligence. We’ve become pretty self-sufficient. But the reality is, we still can’t create miracles. We still get into situations where we’re just stuck.

July 30, 2019 – Time

Why do people like the outdoors so much? What is the real lure of hunting, fishing, and hiking? For many of us, the serenity of an outdoor experience offers precious, and mostly uninterrupted, time to think through our problems — let our minds unwind, get caught up on prayers, and simply listen to God.

July 23, 2019 – Where is Your Focus or Gaze?

In Matthew 14 we read about the disciples having a tough night while on a fishing expedition. The wind and waves had carried them many yards from shore and the chill of the early morning hours was setting in. The “fourth watch” was from 3:00-6:00 AM when exhaustion can hang heavy. Deprived of sleep, the imagination wanders and fear can heighten. The dampness clung to and bit at the weariness of these fishermen.

July 16, 2019 – Distractions in the Game of Life

How often have you heard a football commentator or a coach talk about a player missing a catch or handoff because he took his eyes off the ball? A good receiver “looks the ball” into his hand—his gaze is so fixed on the spiraling leather that a defender hitting him seems like a distant possibility.

July 9, 2019 – Distractions – Are You a Mary or Martha?

Worry and fear are no respecter of persons. Have you ever wrestled with them? They creep into our lives without regard to our position, power, or authority. There are all kinds of worries and fears we can focus on. Maybe you are a worrier. Maybe too much of your time is consumed with worrying about things that might not happen or ultimately have little real impact. Mark Twain once said this about worry, “Worrying is like paying a debt you don’t owe.”

July 2, 2019 – Costly Distractions

July 2, 2019 – Costly Distractions

Over the years and in a variety of situations, I’ve felt that I’m a pretty good multitasker. I believed that I could usually handle several issues or thoughts at the same time, but a recent experience shocked me to my very core. This issue so impacted my life that I decided that this month our devotionals would discuss how distractions can influence our lives.
