They’re Under CONTROL

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 1 Corinthians 14:32 The spirits of prophets are subject to the control of prophets. O-bservation: St. Paul used this chapter to discuss the gifts and workings of the Holy Spirit within the context of a church gathering. In bringing it to a close, he said that every gift a prophet had was subject to the control of the prophet. In other words, prophets or people blessed with a gift were never to be known as out of control. Instead, the church knew “They’re Under Control.” A-pplication: I’ve been in church meetings before where a gift or...

We’ll Take It From Here

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 2 Chronicles 12:1 After Rehoboam’s position as king was established and he had become strong, he and all Israel with him abandoned the law of the Lord. O-bservation: After his father’s (Solomon's) death, Rehoboam was made king over Israel. Right away he faced a real challenge, but afterward his throne was established. It was at that point he must have said to God ... "We'll Take It From Here." A-pplication: Rehoboam made some imbecilic moves. He lost the "Ten Tribes of the North" and they never reunited with Levi and Judah again. Here's the crazy thing....
