Straighten Up and Fly Right

5/23/2022
In Luke 21:19 Jesus said: “By your endurance, gain your lives.” The King James is a great translation here: “In your patience possess ye your souls.” Jesus is not saying that we earn our way into Heaven. What we are talking about is taking responsibility for ourselves and the core of our being. It is exciting to know that the God of all creation wants us to be steadfast and solid in this life, where nothing can shake us or shake us loose from our attention and focus on Him, where He receives...

Satan’s Tackle Box

5/16/2022
. How can we expect to win souls to Christ if the inspection of our lives by the world leaves them wanting to see any distinct difference between their lives and ours? This mini-series "Twelve Devices of the Devil to Draw the Soul to Sin" is adapted from the writing of Thomas Brooks, a Puritan author who lived from 1608-1680, entitled “Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices.” I have included a link in the show notes to his complete works found on archive.org, in a public domain...

For Want of a Nail.

5/12/2022
“For Want of a Nail” first arrived in culture in the 13 century, and made famous here in the United States when Benjamin Franklin included a version of it in his June 1758 publication of his annual “Poor Richard’s Almanack”. In simple yet memorable prose it strikes a chord that all are familiar with, that seemingly unimportant acts or omissions can have grave and unforeseen consequences. The Bible is full of examples of things that at first glance may seem small of insignificant, but in the...

Working Fatigued

5/10/2022
An accident is "an unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally, typically resulting in damage or injury." When we work tired and fatigued, we are an accident waiting to happen. Working fatigued is not of the Lord and addressing the cause and cure of fatigue will require faith to get to the rest we all need. In Isaiah 40:27-31, we find that the cure for life and work fatigue is the affirmation of the glory of God the Creator in our lives in real time through resting,...

Life’s Sweet Song of Faith

5/2/2022
While the American culture focuses on the meaningless and mundane, God offers a calling to a higher realm of existence both in living and especially in dying. The saints listed in the Hebrews 11 Hall of Faith all died in their faith, before the birth of our Lord. Their epitaph is "These all died in faith." Allow these words to encourage your soul today!

Learning to Profit in Prosperity!

4/26/2022
This is Empowering Encouragement NOW #18! If we would learn to profit by our prosperity, we should not need so much adversity. If we really know Him, it should be natural that His rich blessings that flow to us should provoke better things, and not worse things. Have we lately received some blessing which we little expected? Has the Lord put our feet in a large room? Can we sing of His mercies multiplied? Allow God's blessings to provoke increased righteousness and not rebellion! Special...

Get On with It!

4/18/2022
As I watched some of the Coachella music festival this past Easter weekend 2022, I looked for meaningful music but only found the final resting place of the Ringling Brothers clowns. When you look at the massive crowd of young people attending the concerts, you can’t help but ask, what does the future of America look like? Against this barren landscape filled with children who are growing up with empty pockets and nothing to give to the future, without a spiritual revolution founded in Jesus...

“Steady as She Goes!”

4/14/2022
“Steady on the Compass”, or “steady as she goes” is a nautical term which means to steer a steady course on the compass heading indicated at the time of the order. The helmsman is to repeat the order and call out the compass heading on receiving the order “Steady on…”. Steering to a convenient fixed object in line of sight, in place of adhering to the compass coordinates, happens because there is a sense that it is easier to detect deviation from the ordered course. What does this have to do...

Holy Week

So, though this episode may come across less emotional than you would expect for such an important time, I want to give you an overview of some helps I will point you to so you can have some tools to use to have a vibrant conversation or conversations with those for whom you...

Resting Alone Upon the Invisible God

Taylor Hawkins has Died...

What a tragedy...one of the greatest rock drummers of all times, Taylor Hawkins, drummer for the rock band, "The Foo Fighters", has died at the age of 50. He leaves behind a wife and three kids. Why does this matter? This is a long podcast for me, at right at 45 minutes long. But, it is a message everyone needs to hear. I pray for Taylor's family tonight and all who will be impacted by his death. This episode is longer than usual for me, at 45 minutes. But, its not a bunch of ramblings...its...
