Heart Moves

…everyone whose heart God had moved—prepared to go up and build the house of the LORD in Jerusalem. All their neighbors assisted them with articles of silver and gold, with goods and livestock, and with valuable gifts, in addition to all the freewill offerings. Ezra 1:5-6 My devotions this morning took me to Ezra 1, … Continue reading »

If You’re Happy and You Know It…

[They] wept aloud when they saw the foundation of this temple being laid, while many others shouted for joy.  No one could distinguish the sound of the shouts of joy from the sound of weeping, because the people made so much noise. And the sound was heard far away.  Ezra 3:12-13 Have you ever been … Continue reading »

A Sometimes Confusing Gift

After several days of visiting, a prophet from Judea by the name of Agabus came down to see us. He went right up to Paul, took Paul’s belt, and, in a dramatic gesture, tied himself up, hands and feet. He said, “This is what the Holy Spirit says: The Jews in Jerusalem are going to … Continue reading »

Not by Force

Not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. Zechariah 4:6 How is it that we find victory in this life? God says the only way is by depending on His Spirit to guide us. The voice of the world says, “Listen to me. Depend on governments I … Continue reading »

The devil cometh…

  This morning my devotional time took me to 2 Kings 18.  For those of you who don’t know, I’m an Old Testament kinda gal. I love the wisdom that comes to God’s church from the OT, and I love the “voice” God uses and the examples He provides in those ancient texts.  For me, they make sense. They explain struggles and … Continue reading »

Divinely Aware & Forgiven

For no one is cast off by the Lord forever. Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to anyone. Lamentations 3:31-33 In reading the word of the Lord from Lamentations this morning, it was refreshing to realize that our … Continue reading »

[After Jesus has destroyed all dominion, authority and power] he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For he “has put everything under his feet.” Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does … Continue reading »

Monsters Be Gone

When I write devotionals, I usually leave out the unpleasant parts of the Scriptures I reference. The parts about bloody warfare, heads coming off, eyes being poked out, and hail storms that crush hundreds of people in one swoop–these I do not include. Not because I don’t think bad guys need to get what’s coming to … Continue reading »
