Monday - Deuteronomy 9:9–12  Most of us grew up learning the Ten Commandments. At the very least, we grew up in a country where all law and sense of morality comes from the Ten Commandments. And yet, we learn even as they were given to Moses, they were only the first part of God’s spiritual solution for man. The Israelites could see the mountain. They could see the smoke and see the presence of Go...

Monday – Ps. 107:41-43 …and makes their families multiply like flocks… That mightscare you at this point in life. Flocks multiply exponentially. And some of us are past theage of wanting flocks of children. Now grandchildren, that’s different. What is beingconveyed here is that God blesses the needy. Remember last week in Job? Same point,God blesses the needy. Here in Ps. we learn that God blesses...

Monday - Job 5:12-13 Perhaps at no other time in history have there been so manywho consider themselves crafty in their scheming.

Manybrilliant teachers and scientists would rather do anything than admit t...

Wednesday –  2 Chronicles 19:4–7  If you read the Old Testament, you see that it was rare that the children Israel were following the Lord. They strayed often. Jehoshaphat brought them back to Yahweh, the God of their ancestors.  What a dream for our nation today, for us as a country, to come back to the Lord. As we look around we see a people who have strayed and we see injustice on so many level...

When we realize we have sinned, deepinsi...

Monday – Deuteronomy 4:19 While the heavens speak of the majesty and glory ofGod, they are not God. No form of cosmic consciousness exists throughout theuniverse, that we are a part of or can be a part of. God created the universe and manto be independent creations. Separate creations, both speaking of Him, both totallydependent on Him. At no time, are we told in the Bible that we can or should fo...

Monday – John 18:27-39 Pilate asks the question that each of us will ultimatelyask in our lives, “what is truth?” What prompted Pilate’s question? Jesus hadjust explained His reason for living. That sparked within Pilate a question hehad evidently already been considering. Pilate evidently didn’t know hispurpose. He didn’t see truth in the world around him. Truth is fleeting even in aworld of inst...

Monday -Matthew 11:10–14 Take a look at the phrase the kingdom of heaven has beensuffering violence, and the violent have been seizing it by force… What an odd phrase forJesus to utter. He identifies the kingdom of heaven as having occurred from the days ofJohn the Baptist until now… What He means is that salvation by grace through faith hasbegun. It started with the baptism of John which was a ba...

Monday – Micah 5:2 His origin is from antiquity, from eternity… There’s something weall love about a well-made antique. Something from generations gone by. Typically, itwas made with better materials. Maybe it was even manufactured using a differentprocess than today. But even more importantly, it has history. It has a story. One thatexisted before us and, if we take care of that antique, it will ...

Monday – Is. 43:19-21 When the God who created everything old, says He is aboutto do something new, we better listen. Look at the world. If you see a stream flowing,it has been carving it’s path for ages. The layers of erosion are very, very old. Thereis not much new under the sun. Everything man invents comes from something Godcreated a long time ago. It is old. But here, in Isaiah God says He is...

Monday – Psalms 110:1–2   It ‘s a bit of an odd turn of words. Who is talking to who and why?  This is the declaration of the LORD to my Lord… How can both of them be Lord? Our English simply can’t convey everything the Hebrew says. There are two different terms being used here. To simplify it, it reads like this… this is the declaration of Jahweh (Father God) to my Lord (Jesus the son)  When we u...

It is not something we stop our lives for it is the thing we live for. It is what makes life make sense. So ...

He isn’t concerned God would abandon Him. No, this a cry of the heart about a harsh reality. David realizes he will be tempted to be like his foes. He realizes if he acts like the  false witnesses rise up against me, breathing violence...
