Go God go

Stand still and know that He is God and see the salvation of Lord. Whatever battle of this life you are facing now, know it belongs to the Shepherd of our souls.

They will know us by our love

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

Be generous

When we were planting a new church in Redfield, I would continually share the vision to our church and pray for God to supply the finances necessary to do so. One family stopped me early on and said, “God told us to give $10,000.” Then another did the same. Another lady showed up with a $10,000 check.

If only…

Do you have any regrets? I sure do. There are some clothing and hair styles I regret. There are some words I’ve said and left unsaid I regret. Some of my action and inaction is regrettable. Regret is rooted in condemnation, guilt and shame. Regret tells you you’ll always be enslaved to that thing you did or said – your past.

The Favor of God

Lately I’ve been hearing a lot about God’s favor. I asked someone recently how they were doing. The response I got was, “I’m blessed and highly favored.” Mary was told this in Luke 1:26-28 because the Lord was with her and she was going to give birth to our Savior.

Breath of life

Ever feel deflated? Not like Tom Brady’s football, but simply worn out? Recently while I was on a hill operating a backhoe and turning with a full load the front right tire deflated.

Are you ready?

“But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left.” Matthew 25:31-33

What’s really important?

In the midst of devastation and loss, amazing courage can often be seen. News reports show people standing in the midst of ruined homes, facing the loss of possessions and the work of a life-time. They bravely smile and say that life goes on. Neighbors pitch in to help strangers and their communities.
