I Needed That Thorn

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. O-bservation: In the early part of this chapter, St. Paul spoke of how, early in his faith walk with Jesus, he had been taken up into the heavenly realms. This had happened by way of a vision. What he saw and experienced was so supernatural that he was not allowed to speak in...

We Will Boast In Our Great God!

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 44:8 In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name forever. O-bservation: David, who was the king of Israel, was also called a man after God’s own heart.

The Only Boast That Matters

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Galatians 6:14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. O-bservation: In writing to the people of Galatia, Paul the Apostle was reminding them of those who had reverted to pharisaical ways of promoting the law. In fact, he said the people who are boasting are boasting about how many of You they've gotten to go through the act of circumcision. Of course this act was an outside act of the flesh to signal one’s...

If You Must

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 2 Corinthians 10:17 But, “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.” O-bservation: St. Paul was admonishing the believers in Corinth not to measure their works against each other's. But, he said "If You Must," boast in what Jesus has done. A-pplication: Do you ever get tired of reading someone else's biographical sketch? Or, how about when you're at a dinner or conference and the main presenter is introduced? Oh man, just listening to their accolades, that most certainly they've personally written, can put a person to sleep. Of course that doesn't happen until the...
