Learning the Hard Way

Then Job replied to the Lord: “I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted.” JOB 42:1-2 NIV  The experience classroom is where you learn profound wisdom. The school of hard knocks presents a tough curriculum, but what you learn experientially alters you more than what you learn academically. The first lesson you need to learn is that My power is…See More

The Value of Prayer

What good will it do us if we pray? JOB 21:15 NLTIn times of doubt and pain, you may question the value of prayer. You may wonder about the use of spending time in this enterprise and ask what is gained by it all. Petitioning My throne may seem pointless.Such questions soon evaporate in the light of My Holy Presence. The highest value of prayer is a deeper awareness of…See More

Hope on the Horizon

Where then is my hope? Who can see any hope for me? JOB 17:15 NIV  Earth causes discouragement. When you look around, you are hopeless. Most news is bad. Circumstances of crime, war, famine, disease, abuse, sin, and death sadden you. The world feels like the insane asylum of the solar system.Egocentricity causes defeat. When you look within, you are hopeless. An honest…See More

When Life Becomes a Bitter Pill

I am disgusted with my life. Let me complain freely. I will speak in the bitterness of my soul. JOB 10:1 NLTSometimes you are like Elijah—experiencing burnout syndrome. At such times, you are almost to the point of praying desperately like him, “I have had enough, take my life.” You have never been totally burned out, but you have gotten mighty warm.You have not had to weather a perfect storm like Job. You have always liked your life, never loathed it. Sometimes the emotional terrain you…See More

When A Quiet Place is Hard to Find

I have no peace, no quietness; I have no rest, but only turmoil.JOB 3:26 NIVDO NOT DISTURB signs do not keep unwelcome intruders away. Frustrating problems, excruciating pain, and mystifying perplexity make personal peace elusive. Unexpected trouble can shatter your repose.When being good does not pay, cause and effect seems inoperable. Children wonder about everything—you…See More

Life's Greatest Blessing

The LORD himself will choose the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel – “God is with us.” ISAIAH 7:14 NLTYou are not alone, though you sometimes feel lonely—I am with you.When you are unsure which way to turn, I am your Wonderful Counselor.When you are feeling weak-kneed, I am your Mighty God.When your life…See More

Timing is Everything

If you keep still, deliverance and rescue for the Jews will originate from some other quarter, while you and your family shall be destroyed. And who knows but you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this? ESTHER 4:14 NLTI am the Master of moments—My pattern is shown in sovereignty. I sometimes work miracles anonymously. Although My Name is not mentioned in the book…See More

Getting Serious with God

All who separated themselves from foreign neighbors to keep The Revelation of God together with their wives, sons, daughters – everyone old enough to understand – joined their noble kinsmen in a binding oath to follow The Revelation of God, to carry out the commandments of GOD our Master, all his standards. NEHEMIAH 10:28-29 THE MESSAGEI am the Most High and Holy God—the noblest decision you can arrive at is to make a conscious effort to follow My law.Whatever else you may choose pales into…See More

It is absolutely necessary that people who command have impeccable…See More

The Faith-Life Connection

This was quite a contrast to the former governors who had laid heavy burdens on the people, demanding a daily ration of food and wine, besides a pound of silver. Even their assistants took advantage of the people. But because of my fear of God, I did not act that way. NEHEMIAH 5:15 NLTNehemiah’s example of leadership challenges you to be a blessing, not a burden. His…See More

Prayer that Changes the World

While Ezra prayed and made this confession, weeping and throwing himself to the ground in front of the Temple of God, a large crowd of people from Israel – men, women, and children – gathered and wept bitterly with him.
