Jesus never promised we wouldn't have problems. In fact, He promised we would have problems. In John 16:33 He says: "I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world." He tells us not just problems, but tribulations. Tribulation is defined as: grievous trouble; severe trial or suffering. So Jesus tells us we will have not just trouble, but severe suffering. But He also reminds us that He has over come the world. He also reminds us that in Him we have peace. His peace is always with us because He is always with us. I'm sharing this post today because I want to apologize for the past few weeks of sporadic posting. My hope is to get caught up today or tomorrow, but I don't want to just throw it against the wall. I want it to be from our Heavenly Father. I want it to be His words, His guidance, His peace. I have been very distracted as my family has been experiencing some

May 23, 2024 – 1 Samuel 12:1-5

May 23, 2024 – 1 Samuel 12:1-5 12  And Samuel said to all Israel, “Behold, I have obeyed your voice in all that you have said to me and have made a king over you.  2  And now, behold, the king walks before you, and I am old and gray; and behold, my sons are with you. I have walked before you from my youth until this day.  3  Here I am; testify against me before the  Lord  and before his anointed. Whose ox have I taken? Or whose donkey have I taken? Or whom have I defrauded? Whom have I oppressed? Or from whose hand have I taken a bribe to blind my eyes with it? Testify against me [ a ]  and I will restore it to you.”  4  They said, “You have not defrauded us or oppressed us or taken anything from any man's hand.”  5  And he said to them, “The  Lord  is witness against you, and his anointed is witness this day, that you have not found anything in my hand.” And they said, “He is witness.” These verses make me think of how important our reputation is when we represent Jesus.   Oth

May 22, 2024 – 1 Samuel 11:12-15

May 22, 2024 – 1 Samuel 11:12-15 12  Then the people said to Samuel, “Who is it that said, ‘Shall Saul reign over us?’ Bring the men, that we may put them to death.”  13  But Saul said, “Not a man shall be put to death this day, for today the  Lord  has worked salvation in Israel.”  14  Then Samuel said to the people, “Come, let us go to Gilgal and there renew the kingdom.”  15  So all the people went to Gilgal, and there they made Saul king before the  Lord  in Gilgal. There they sacrificed peace offerings before the  Lord , and there Saul and all the men of Israel rejoiced greatly. Don’t you love how Saul give the glory to God and recognizes the Lord has worked salvation in Israel. May we also give our God the glory as he reigns in our lives and works victoriously in us, His children. Heavenly Father, help me celebrate like these men of Israel did, but let it be that I live my whole life celebrating You, and not just in the good times.   Help me remember You are at work every m

May 21, 2024 – 1 Samuel 11:1-11

May 21, 2024 – 1 Samuel 11:1-11 11  Then Nahash the Ammonite went up and besieged Jabesh-gilead, and all the men of Jabesh said to Nahash, “Make a treaty with us, and we will serve you.”  2  But Nahash the Ammonite said to them, “On this condition I will make a treaty with you, that I gouge out all your right eyes, and thus bring disgrace on all Israel.”  3  The elders of Jabesh said to him, “Give us seven days' respite that we may send messengers through all the territory of Israel. Then, if there is no one to save us, we will give ourselves up to you.”  4  When the messengers came to Gibeah of Saul, they reported the matter in the ears of the people, and all the people wept aloud. 5  Now, behold, Saul was coming from the field behind the oxen. And Saul said, “What is wrong with the people, that they are weeping?” So they told him the news of the men of Jabesh.  6  And the Spirit of God rushed upon Saul when he heard these words, and his anger was greatly kindled.  7  He took

May 20, 2024 – 1 Samuel 10:17-27

May 20, 2024 – 1 Samuel 10:17-27 17  Now Samuel called the people together to the  Lord  at Mizpah.  18  And he said to the people of Israel, “Thus says the  Lord , the God of Israel, ‘I brought up Israel out of Egypt, and I delivered you from the hand of the Egyptians and from the hand of all the kingdoms that were oppressing you.’  19  But today you have rejected your God, who saves you from all your calamities and your distresses, and you have said to him, ‘Set a king over us.’ Now therefore present yourselves before the  Lord  by your tribes and by your thousands.” 20  Then Samuel brought all the tribes of Israel near, and the tribe of Benjamin was taken by lot.  21  He brought the tribe of Benjamin near by its clans, and the clan of the Matrites was taken by lot; and Saul the son of Kish was taken by lot. But when they sought him, he could not be found.  22  So they inquired again of the  Lord , “Is there a man still to come?” and the  Lord  said, “Behold, he has hidden hims

May 19, 2024 – 1 Samuel 10:1-16

May 19, 2024 – 1 Samuel 10:1-16 10  Then Samuel tookin   a flask of oil and poured it on his head and kissed him and said, “Has not the  Lord  anointed you to be prince over his people Israel? And you shall reign over the people of the  Lord  and you will save them from the hand of their surrounding enemies. And this shall be the sign to you that the  Lord  has anointed you to be prince over his heritage.  2  When you depart from me today, you will meet two men by Rachel's tomb in the territory of Benjamin at Zelzah, and they will say to you, ‘The donkeys that you went to seek are found, and now your father has ceased to care about the donkeys and is anxious about you, saying, “What shall I do about my son?”’  3  Then you shall go on from there farther and come to the oak of Tabor. Three men going up to God at Bethel will meet you there, one carrying three young goats, another carrying three loaves of bread, and another carrying a skin of wine.  4  And they will greet you and g

May 18, 2024 – 1 Samuel 9:1-27

May 18, 2024 – 1 Samuel 9:1-27 9  There was a m.an of Benjamin whose name was Kish, the son of Abiel, son of Zeror, son of Becorath, son of Aphiah, a Benjaminite, a man of wealth.  2  And he had a son whose name was Saul, a handsome young man. There was not a man among the people of Israel more handsome than he. From his shoulders upward he was taller than any of the people. 3  Now the donkeys of Kish, Saul's father, were lost. So Kish said to Saul his son, “Take one of the young men with you, and arise, go and look for the donkeys.”  4  And he passed through the hill country of Ephraim and passed through the land of Shalishah, but they did not find them. And they passed through the land of Shaalim, but they were not there. Then they passed through the land of Benjamin, but did not find them. 5  When they came to the land of Zuph, Saul said to his servant who was with him, “Come, let us go back, lest my father cease to care about the donkeys and become anxious about us.”  6
