Dead Weight

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Genesis 13:14 The Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, “Look around from where you are, to the north and south, to the east and west.” O-bservation: This verse follows Abram’s separation from his nephew, Lot. Abram had taken his nephew out of Harran with him out of the goodness of his heart when Abram’s father, Terah, passed away. He had already been called of God and had heard God promise to make of him a great nation. But still, Lot had nowhere to go once Abram left for Canaan’s land....

Never Settle For Second Best

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Genesis 11:31 Terah took his son Abram, his grandson Lot son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, the wife of his son Abram, and together they set out from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to Canaan. But when they came to Harran, they settled there. O-bservation: This story occurred while Abram’s (aka Abraham’s) father Terah was still alive.

It may...

It Sounded Good At The Time

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Genesis 16:2 So she said to Abram, “The Lord has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her.” O-bservation: In the previous chapter, God and Abram had a discussion, and Abram reminded God that although God had promised to build him into a mighty nation, he still didn’t have a son. Undoubtedly, Abram had shared his conversation with the Lord with his wife, Sarai. Now we read that Sarai had an answer to their dilemma. She told Abram to sleep with her servant girl,...

Believe The Lord Today

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Genesis 15:6 Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness. O-bservation: Abram received a promise from the Lord that he would be made a great nation, but he had no children. When he asked the Lord about it, God told him that he indeed would have children. At that point Abram BELIEVED the Lord and immediately God labeled him a righteous man. A-pplication: Nothing matters more to the heart of God than You and me BELIEVING in Him. Our faith is more important than anything we think we may have accomplished for...
