More Than Business

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Genesis 43:30 Deeply moved at the sight of his brother, Joseph hurried out and looked for a place to weep. He went into his private room and wept there. O-bservation: By that point in time, Joseph was running the entire BUSINESS of Egypt. Let’s face it. If there’s no food, there is no enterprise. Joseph knew every move of the businesses in need throughout Egypt. But when his brothers showed up in Egypt needing food, Joseph began to break. Why? Because sometimes life is about “More Than Business.” Joseph was about to reunite with...

Healing In The Land

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Genesis 41:40 You shall be in charge of my palace, and all my people are to submit to your orders. Only with respect to the throne will I be greater than you. O-bservation: These are the words of the Pharaoh of Egypt during the days of Joseph, the son of Jacob. The king had been troubled by a dream that no one could interpret, and Joseph, a prisoner in the palace jail, was called from prison and given a chance to interpret the king’s dream. His interpretation made complete sense to the Pharaoh/king, and...

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Genesis 37:19 “Here comes that dreamer!” they said to each other. O-bservation: Joseph, Jacob’s favorite son, had a dream one night and told his brothers and father that he had dreamed that one day they would all bow down to him. Of course, they scoffed and were very upset that the young man would make such a boast. It helped turn Jacob’s brothers against him so that they wanted him dead. Their response to even seeing him was one of hatred. However, they had not taken into account that perhaps Jacob had indeed received...

If You’re Really Serious

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Luke 14:27 And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. O-bservation: The obvious immediate response to these words of Jesus would be, “If You’re Really Serious!” In other words, there will always be a cost to following Jesus as Lord and Savior. He didn’t die for nothing. He died and resurrected and gave us the Holy Spirit to be with us twenty-four-seven! Because of this, we must and can take up our cross (mission) and follow Him. A-pplication: I suppose in my years of Christian service, I’ve heard the debate...

Marriage And Family

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Genesis 31:16 Surely all the wealth that God took away from our father belongs to us and our children. So do whatever God has told you. O-bservation: These are the words of Jacobs’ wives, Leah and Rachel. His father-in-law’s disposition had turned against him, and he was forced to take his livestock and employees and leave Laban’s land and territory. But getting daughters to leave their father’s family and way of doing things is usually difficult. Jacob called the two women together and told them what was happening. His wives said, “Jacob, you must...
