Our world is full of disasters – famines, fires, floods, fighting – all bringing destruction and death. Would you “hold up” under such pressure?

Be Still and Know

“Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10) Have you ever meditated on this verse? The first four words are both a command and an invitation inextricably linked to the declaration made in the last half of the verse, for it is impossible to be still unless one has an intimate, personal relationship with the One who has eternal, unchanging existence. Indeed the message, the command of the world is the opposite – to go, to do, to be busy, to be focused on self and not know God. Satan does everything he can to keep a non-believer and...

Called by God’s Name

By Lynn Metier There are numerous Scriptural references to being called by God’s name. The prophet Jeremiah claimed: “I have been called by Thy name, O LORD God of hosts.” (Jeremiah 15:16b) What does it mean to be called by the name of the LORD? While the Hebrew name Jeremiah comes from 2 words which can be translated “Yahweh will be exalted”, surely the Old Testament prophet must have known that to be called by God’s name had more profound implications than just in the translation of his name. And what about today’s “Christians”? Have we looked past the...

God Calling

Recently we noted that God called to Adam, when he was hiding in the garden, to ask: “Where are you?” A study through the New Testament reveals that God continues to call out to mankind for many reasons and purposes. In Matthew 2:15, the Old Testament prophet Hosea is quoted as saying: “Out of Egypt did I call My Son.” (Hosea 11:1) Just as God the Father called Jesus out of Egypt, so He continues to call today to those who would be His children to come out of the world; but, as Jesus later stated: “many are called,...

Where are you?

The first question recorded in the Bible is the serpent’s query to Eve regarding God’s word, leading her to doubt God’s provision (Genesis 3:1). The next question asked is God seeking man after sin has resulted in a drastic change in man’s relationship with his Creator. When God called, “Where are you?”(Genesis 3:9), of course He knew where Adam was, but Adam needed to assess not just his physical location and status – hiding from God – but also his mental, emotional, and spiritual conditions – of fear, shame, and death (that is, separation from God’s fellowship – v.10)....

  • The Example Of Moses
    Moses was one of the mightiest vessels of the Lord. He was indeed a man of faith, but he was also a man of fruit. However, like Elijah, he was a man subject to the passions and temptations in life like every one of us. For example, he had a problem with anger, as evidenced […]
  • Let’s Plant A Garden
    Scripture uses nature to teach us many lessons. For example, Christians are likened to farmers. Some plant, some water but it is “God who gives the increase.” What a challenge! You and I can be implements used in the Lord’s garden. And for each task there is a season. However, if we get our eyes […]
  • Faith In Fruitless Times
    We are ever being taught by God’s Spirit to walk by faith, and not by sight. Faith sees what the natural eye doesn’t. How important it is for us to grasp this key to a steady walk with Jesus. I was reminded of this again when one of the lines sung during a worship service […]
