S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
When we heard of it, our hearts melted in fear and everyone’s courage failed because of you, for the Lord your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below.
These were the words of Rahab, the prostitute who was hiding the Jewish spies. The spies had been sent in by Joshua to check out the land of Jericho. She told them that all of them had heard of the great God Jehovah of Israel, and that their hearts had failed them in fear.
“God’s Miracles Precede God’s People.” It was true in Joshua’s day and it’s true today. It appears that everything we do in the church today is to get everyone to show up at the same time. Show up with all of their gifting and happy faces ready to serve. But please listen, if we could put as much effort into having God show up, “God’s Miracles Precede God’s People,” and when they do people are there. People can’t help being anywhere near God, unless they’re told He’s there and He’s not. When God is in the house Miracles are bound to happen. When they do, the enemy of our souls loses heart and runs in fear. I’m believing for Jesus to show up in your life and mine today!
I’m ready to show up and smile and serve. I’m ready to do that every day. But I really want You there more than me. Amen
