But Now… Pray like all Get-Out!

Psalm 74:6 But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers. Psalm 74 is a psalm written in a time of great affliction and is given for instruction to the church as to what we should do in the day of trouble. Pray like all get out! I had […]

But now… I get it God

I wish I could say that quicker. Meaning that I wish that I got “it” (the understanding of God’s plan) earlier. I wish that when I was facing a struggle in my life back here, I could see “waaaay” out there and understand why I must go through what I’m going through. If I’d be […]

But Now… that’s not My song

Job 35:10-15 But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night; Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven? There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men. Surely God will not hear vanity, neither […]

But Now… a little LIP service please

Job 16:5-7 But I would strengthen you with my mouth, and the moving of my lips should asswage your grief. Though I speak, my grief is not asswaged: and though I forbear, what am I eased? But now he hath made me weary: thou hast made desolate all my company. It appears that the winner of […]

But Now… Watch how you EAT (Dieters beware)

Job 4:5 But now it is come upon thee, and thou faintest; it toucheth thee, and thou art troubled. I have to wonder how many times in my life I’ve been as indifferent to people as Job’s “friend” Eliphaz was toward Job’s afflictions. Leading into his dissertation of demise he asks Job if its okay […]

But Now… Somebody get my fiddle!

2 Kings 3:15 But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the Lord came upon him. One thing that will almost assuredly bring joy to my soul is music. And stringed music that much more; it’s the basics that I love. So my “But Now” verse […]

But Now… Isn’t that Special

1 Kings 5:4 But now the Lord my God hath given me rest on every side, so that there is neither adversary nor evil occurrent. It was his father David’s desire but Solomon’s task to get the temple in Jerusalem built, and build it he would in a splendor that my mind cannot imagine. There was many […]

But Now… get busy

2 Samuel 12:19-24 19 But when David saw that his servants whispered, David perceived that the child was dead: therefore David said unto his servants, Is the child dead? And they said, He is dead. 20 Then David arose from the earth, and washed, and anointed himself, and changed his apparel, and came into the house of […]

But Now… it’s no small thing that I’m stupid

I Chronicles 21:8 And David said unto God, I have sinned greatly, because I have done this thing: but now, I beseech thee, do away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly. My first thought when I read that prayer of David’s was, “Wow… how many times have I said that?” […]

But now… it’s time for you to step aside

2 Samuel 18:3 But the people answered, Thou shalt not go forth: for if we flee away, they will not care for us; neither if half of us die, will they care for us: but now thou art worth ten thousand of us: therefore now it is better that thou succour us out of the […]
