Psalm 4: 5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord. What are sacrifices of righteousness? As I pondered this verse, I heard these words from the Holy Spirit; "What you're doing right now." Studying His Word, the Bible, it's that you're taking valuable time to learn God's word, His ways. Spending time searching out God by reading the Bible, getting up and going to church, singing His praises, kneeling in prayer are sacrifices of righteousness. Lit
Psalm 42:7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. This verse reminds me of a time I worked offshore in the Gulf of Mexico on an oil platform; it was one of my first trips out into the deep blue waters. On this day, there were enormous thunderhead clouds high in the sky. I saw three gigantic waterspouts stretching up to the heavens; it was a spectacular sight. The old-timer I was with said, "Don't worry about th
God's Banking System June 12 Jeremiah 3:15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding. This scripture is talking about the final reign of Christ. When everything has come to completion, God still sees a need for pastors to govern his church. The importance of a pastor and belonging to a church should never be taken for granted. God chooses pastors to feed and nourish His sheep. Your pastor may not be the most
Proverbs 15:3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. Have you ever heard the saying, 'If you don't get caught, there's nothing wrong with it?'

Of course, that applies to work, but have you ever thought about using it to the details no one else will see? A cashier gives you a dollar extra with your change, and you give it back
Psalm 23: 5 T hou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. W hen was the last time you had a banquet prepared for you by the Lord in front of your enemies? Probably more recently than you remember. This is one of the most beautiful Psalms in all of the bible, but we tend to look at it with western eyes. I really can’t see myself sitting at this huge table covered in food looking at all my starving
Psalm 86:7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me. How's your day going so far? No matter who you are, you can be assured in life, you're going to have some trouble. When I was a child, we used to have this red rotary dial telephone with a long cord to the wall. I remember laying on the bed looking at it, hoping God would call me on it; no matter how long I looked at it, it never rang. When it did ring, it was always for my brother or sister.
