The Battle is the Lord’s – Part 3

God says in 2 Chronicles 20:15; “You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.” These are the same words God spoke to the Israelites when they cried out for help in the wilderness when being chased by the Egyptians. Today, God’s message is…

The Battle is the Lord’s – Part 2

Do you know what the king of Judah’s first reaction to hearing that the armies were coming against him?​ He broke out in a cold sweat. Fear was his first response. To me that’s comforting. He wasn’t a warrior king like we see in movies, he was just like us. He did what we would…

The Battle is the Lord’s – Part 1

The people of Judah honesty thought they were going to die. Three, large, bloodthirsty armies were heading their way, threatening to kill them all and take the land that God had given them. (2 Chronicles 20 describes the entire event.) But God had other plans. He intervened, setting ambushes against them and caused them to…

Get Set Free.

  I want to share a truth with you today that can set you free—free from bondage, guilt and condemnation. It can set you free to live in victory and be everything God created you to be. This is a truth that is the very foundation of your Christian faith. When you really begin to…

Living Under Grace

I get asked all the time about what does it mean to live a Christian life under grace. My easiest answer is that when you are conscious of God’s constant supply and love for you, you are living under grace. Sometimes, though, we can’t help but be more aware of the everyday demands of life….

Look to the skies.

I live in southern California and there is some serious rain heading our way. That means we are going to see some rainbows! I think everyone in the world would agree that it’s a pretty awesome thing to see. Do you know the significance of the rainbow? It came about in Noah’s time. He lived…

Only Jesus Is Altogether Lovely.

I love the symbolism of Jesus as fine flour. Leviticus 2 says, “When anyone offers a grain offering to the Lord, his offering shall be of find flour…” Fine flour comes from wheat that has been pounded and beaten again and again, and sifted several times. Doesn’t that remind you of Jesus’ sufferings and sacrifice…

Jesus’ blood washes you.

I love the way God has put Jesus in the Old Testament for us all to see. It’s the unique way God planted the seed for the world to see the beauty of His love and forgiveness. Many religious people, and the world, never get to understand how we have moved forward from the Old…

Quit Cleaning The Fish.

Scripture calls us to be “fishers of men”. We are NOT called to clean the fish when they are caught. That is God’s job. What the heck is going on in the church today? Why are our pastors and leaders so focused on getting in the pulpit and beating up the sheep about their behavior?…

Let’s Be Free.

I want to share a truth with you today that can set you free—free from bondage, guilt and condemnation. It can set you free to live in victory and be everything God created you to be. This is a truth that is the very foundation of your faith. When you really begin to understand this…

Count on Forgiveness.

What are you more conscious of today? Your sins or the fact that you have been forgiven? Don’t ever be conscious of your sins. We must always be aware of Jesus and His finished work on the cross. The Lamb of God has taken away all your sins at the cross, so count on the fact…

You Are Counted Righteous.

What do you think righteousness is about? Think about it for a minute. Is it something you do or something you are? Is about right doing or right believing? “But people are counted as righteous, not because of their work, but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners..” – Romans 4:5 Hmmm. Looks…
