Blessed and Happy to Keep God’s Law

S. O. A. P Here's your 90 second AM devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 112:1 Praise the Lord. Blessed are those who fear the Lord. Who find great delight in his commands. O-bservation: This is an amazing promise from our God. The Scripture says first of all, when you respect and fear the Lord there will be a blessing coming direct from God in heaven to you. Second, when you keep God's law there is a Joyful Smile instead of a Furrowed Brow that comes into your life. A-pplication: This verse, if followed, sets up a series of blessings in the life of the believer that are just...

He’s Mighty Mighty

S. O. A. P Here's your 90 second AM devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 93:4 Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea – the Lord on high is mighty. O-bservation: David, the King of Israel who once ripped a lion and a bear apart and killed them with his bare hands, and who once killed a 10-foot giant with a slingshot and a stone, reflects on what "Real Might" really is.

Nothing or Something?

S. O. A. P Here's your 90 second AM devotional! S-cripture: John 15:5 I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. O-bservation: Jesus told His disciples in this passage of scripture that there has to be a power source for all productivity.

The branch only has life, has beauty, and bears fruit because it is connected to the vine. Jesus said, "I am...

A Prayer For Our Own GOOD

S. O. A. P Here's your 90 second AM devotional! S-cripture: Jeremiah 10:24 Discipline me, Lord, but only in good measure – not in your anger, or you will reduce me to nothing. O-bservation: This is the prayer of Jeremiah. Judah was about to experience God's wrath and Jeremiah knew it. He then speaks for his nation … in particular the "Righteous Folks" … and says, "Dear Lord we need discipline, but please discipline us according to what we can bear and not what we deserve. If you give us what we deserve there will be nothing left of us.” A-pplication: As I read this prayer of...
