As For You

Our prayer lives are filled with cries to God for help. This is certainly something we see demonstrated throughout the Bible – and God wants us to come to Him. It is important for us to declare our dependence on God and to seek His will for our lives. Intercession on the behalf of others […]

Now We Are Ready

After the scouts returned and ten men gave a bad report, the Israelites were not eager to press forward. Actually, they were considering the idea of selecting another leader to lead them back to Egypt. Yes, the people wanted to go back to their slavery in Egypt instead of the Promised Land. Talk about trust […]

Heard about Everything

When Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, came for a visit, he had “heard about everything God has done.” This verse isn’t a verse people usually post as the big motivational verse. This isn’t the life-changing verse for most people. But look at it closely. This man had heard what God did for Moses and the Israelites. He […]

Filled with Awe

The parting of the Red Sea is one of the most known events that we read about in the Bible. God moved in a mighty way as He led His people through the parted waters while chased by the Egyptians. After the Israelites made their way safely through the parted sea, the water came crashing […]

I Have Planned This

Life isn’t usually rainbows and butterflies. Often there are moments when we wonder what God is actually doing. What is the plan?!?

I realized something I always knew, but came to know more deeply—that I was not in control—that there would be moments when it didn’t matter how hard I tried, I would fail. Things changed that day. Over […]

Stand Still

Sometimes we like to avoid or rush through situations all together. If something seems inconvenient, unsettling or as something that could possibly cause some damage or undesired consequence, we tend to back away. In Joshua 3, we read of this command for the priests to stand still in the Jordan. This is one of my […]

God Actions

There are times in life when we should stand still and times we should get going. It is best to have God actions—actions taken in obedience to God. There are moments when we rush into something when we are to wait. There are other moments when we wait and wait, when God wants us to […]

Repositioning

I love to read about the parting of the Red Sea. As the Israelites were traveling, it must have been awesome to have this presence of God in the form of the pillar of cloud. That pillar of cloud and pillar of fire went before them and led them all the way. I think that’s […]
