Share My Heart

The English Standard Version translates today’s verse as, “If you turn at My reproof, behold, I will pour out My Spirit to you; I will make My words known to you.” God beckons us to “come and listen.” He has wisdom to share, and His name is Jesus. God promises to share His heart, to […]

Spirit Upon Them All

Moses appointed seventy leaders and they were recognized as elders and leaders of Israel. These people were going to receive the Spirit of the Lord, and they would help to bear the burden. Later we read of Eldad and Medad prophesying. After it was witnessed, word was brought to Moses. Joshua even told Moses to […]

More Than You Can Handle

Does God ever give you more than you can handle? That is something people debate often. Many times I hear that God will never give you more than you can handle. This is often said when we are going through something tough in life like a loss of loved one, a painful illness, or an […]

To Be Your God

God wants to be your God. Isn’t that awesome? God offers us the greatest blessing—Himself! How great is our God? How blessed are we? In the Old Testament we read about the Tabernacle. It was God’s way of creating a way for His presence to dwell on earth in the midst of His people. Later […]

When God Steps In

I have seen a lot of images lately that say, “When God steps in, miracles happen.” The images and phrase are actually borrowed from bestselling author Neale Donald Walsch, who wrote a book with that title. I agree that miracles happen. Miracles happen every single day. Much of the time they go unnoticed because people […]

Praise the Lord

My son started playing the trombone at the start of this school year. Some people warned me that I would be in for trouble, and that the noise of his practices would drive me crazy. I have not found that to be true at all. When he practices, I always want to be nearby so […]
