Awakened in my Faith!

“Aroused by faith, Moses, when he had grown to maturity and became great…”  Hebrews 11:24 It is interesting that Moses had to be aroused by faith.  The word “arouse” means to be awakened; to be stirred up and awakened from slumbering.  We can get so consumed and overwhelmed with the struggles of life that we become discouraged to the point that our spirit slumbers, or shuts down and sleeps. When you give in and are overcome by discouragement, you have a slumbering spirit.  An awakened spirit keeps you focused on what God is doing; even in the midst of trouble, […]

Rend Your Heart

Should you not fear me?” declares the Lord.     “Should you not tremble in my presence? I made the sand a boundary for the sea,     an everlasting barrier it cannot cross. The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail;     they may roar, but they cannot cross it. But these people have stubborn and rebellious hearts;     they have turned aside and gone away. They do not say to themselves,     ‘Let us fear the Lord our God, who gives autumn and spring rains in season,     who assures us of the regular weeks of harvest.’ Your wrongdoings have kept these away;     your sins have […]

He is My High Tower

I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.    Psalm 18:1-2 The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. Proverbs 18:10 Everyone needs a place where they can feel secure and safe. In Psalms 18:1-2 the Psalmist describes the Lord as a fortress, a place to go for safety from an enemy. The Lord is also a high tower. […]

Worship is the Key

Surely or only goodness, and mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of the Lord (and His presence) shall be my dwelling place. Psalm 23:6 The Psalmist David devoted his life searching for the presence of God.  And he found what he was in search of.  Once he found God’s presence he never wanted to leave.  He wrote many times of his desire to dwell in the presence of the Lord all the days of his life.  He said that being in the presence of […]

The Signs of His Presence

“…The sign of your presence; You make the places where morning and evening have birth shout for joy” (Psalm 65:8). Have you ever traveled down an unfamiliar road, earnestly looking for a sign that says you are on the right track?  I have.   It was such a relief to finally see the sign and to know that I was going in the right direction. I would like to share with you a wonderful discovery that I saw in God’s Word this morning.  In Psalm 65, David said that we can see with our own eyes a sign of the presence […]
