Detours Don’t Deter

When I went into town a couple of days ago there was a sign up that said Highway 51 closed to through traffic. I assumed it was out past the bridge. Later when I drove down Pine Street, I was surprised that it was in the middle of town that the street was closed and detour signs were posted. When detours in life come our way we can be very surprised. We assume it won’t happen where we are, but a detour is better than an accident. We have to heed the signs and follow God no matter what. Oh beloved, …

Do You Need Proof?

We haven’t seen any deer in our yard in a while. But the evidence that they pass through is there with hoof prints in the soft earth. We only saw crawdads while we were working on the retaining wall, but the evidence that they are still around remains with their mud towers coming out of the earth. Evidence of things not seen.

Be Faithful and Delight in God

I believe including David’s faithfulness as a trait in his formula for security, indicates it is not an inborn trait. Even after faith is exercised, it can grow.

Understanding God

“Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of His burning anger.” Isaiah [13:13] Our God is faithful and His heart is for us, but He is also a wrathful God. He is perfect, and in the same way that darkness cannot remain in the presence of light our imperfection cannot remain in the presence of His perfection for long. We are warned multiple times that His day is coming, the day the whole world will see His power. Here in Isaiah 13, …

God’s Wrath

“Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of His burning anger.” Isaiah [13:13] Our God is faithful and His heart is for us, but He is also a wrathful God. He is perfect, and in the same way that darkness cannot remain in the presence of light our imperfection cannot remain in the presence of His perfection for long. We are warned multiple times that His day is coming, the day the whole world will see His power. Here in Isaiah 13, …
