Do Likewise

Word of the Day

Three different times Samuel hears his name and gets up and runs to Eli. After the third time Eli perceives that the LORD was calling Samuel so he told him to go lie down and say to the LORD next time, "Speak, LO...

Drunk Prayers

Pray

Most of us have our prayer routines (which isn't necesarrily a bad thing) whether you throw out your "Our Fathers", "Thank you for the food", or like my daughter who at dinner always ask God to help her "be thankful to my family" or pray for friends, family, neighbors, church, country etc etc. If you are like me sometimes these prayers or times of prayer can become routine...

Fog Of War…

Armor of God

The term “Fog of War” is a term that defines what we sometimes cannot discern. Think of facing an enemy that you cannot see. By this I mean that while all hell is breaking loose and your eyes are filled with sweat, you smell the mixture of combat smells…smoke, sweat, blood, gun powder, and vehicle exhaust – you sometimes cannot see who the enemy is...

PTSD in the Old Testament?

Word of the Day

I am blessed to work (in ministry) with a man who not only shares the PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) diagnosis with me, he has had it since 1967. “JB” has 4 purple hearts and is probably the main reason that PTSD is recognized by the VA (Veterans Administration) and DOD (Department of Defense). We have talked recently about how “new” is PTSD ...

Revenge Is Sweet... And Belongs To The Lord

Word of the Day

But David said to Abishai, “Do not destroy him, for who can put out his hand against the Lord’s anointed and be guiltless?” And David said, “As the Lord lives, the Lord will strike him, or his day will come to die, or he will go down into battle and perish.1 Samuel 26:9-10 Revenge... Vindication... Something my flesh so desperately desires. But the...

The Voice of Reason... or The Voice of God

Walk with Jesus

David was running from Saul, staying undercover and out of sight was top of mind. Saul was on a killing spree and killed 85 priests along with women & children because one of the priests gave David some bread and a spear. Hiding in caves, hiding in the forest, David was on the run. Then he gets some news: Now they told David, “Behold, the Philistines are fightin...

Practicing With Lions And Bears...

Walk with Jesus

1 Samuel 17: 37And David said, “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!” How many times have I read the story of David and the Goliath... many. And this time the Lord in his grace impressed on me how Davi...

Word of the Day: 1 Samuel 3:10

Word of the Day

"Speak for your servant is listening" Samuel – 1 Samuel 3:10 A number of years ago I became mesmerized by something Jesus said in John 10:27 "My sheep hear My voice, I know them and they follow me." The simplicity of the statement captured my attention and I began to note the passages in Scripture that talk about God's voice and specifically us hearing His voice. C...

Word of the Day: 1 Samuel 8

Word of the Day

Reading: 1 Samuel 8 'Let's be Like Everyone Else' "Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah; and they said to him, "Behold, you have grown old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now appoint a king for us to judge us like all the nations." But the thing was displeasing in the sight of Samuel when they said, "Give us a king to judge...
