From Wreck to Rest

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. I have often heard and occasionally said the statement, “God […]

Satan’s Most Powerful Tool

Whither shall I go from the Spirit? Whither shall I flee from Thy presence? Psalm 139:7 Sometimes I confuse myself. I know the word of God, the power of God, the compassion of God, the omnipresence of God, and above all I know the forgiveness of God. But it seems when I’m at my wits […]

Your Sphere of Influence

Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Job 38:31 I heard that verse preached too many years ago to count, but the scripture has fascinated me since. There in the book of Job, the oldest of books in the bible, is an astronomy lesson and should be a […]

Peace for Tomorrow

I would likely lose count of the times per day that Satan whispers in my ear with a serpent tongue… “God does not care.” That is why, when I run across a verse like that of Jeremiah 23:23 it’s such a special time. “Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a […]

Hippies, incense and Jesus

Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up; Jeremiah 18:15 I could not help but digress to the image of the psychedelic incense burning hippy of the […]

Leave Your Burdens at the Gate

For greater than twenty years I haven’t wondered where I’m supposed to be on Sunday morning. I haven’t gotten up on any given Sunday and said, “what a great day to go to the mall! That actually wouldn’t happen on a Thursday! With words unspoken you may have perhaps read that as if it were […]

Were it not for the Place of Grace

I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.~ Jeremiah 17:10 A thorough searching of my heart on any given day will lead me to an awareness of the rebellion that resides there. The old adage “you […]

Dirty Girdles by the Riverside

Sounds like the name of a bad country song. But no, it’s a story in the book of Jeremiah, Chapter 13. The lamenting, ever so fed up prophet that God gives an odd instruction to use for an illustration in a sermon. God tells Jeremiah to get his girdle (a belt of sorts) and put […]
