It’s Not Finished Yet!

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Acts 13:36a Now when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep. O-bservation: King David had a purpose for his generation that shaped the world. When he had completed it, God took him. A-pplication: Your generation is your life span, not a period of universally acknowledged time. David was probably 70, and his purpose was complete, and THEN he died. If you're reading this and you can get out of bed, there's more for you. The point is, are you willing to serve God's purpose for your generation? It may be to...

From God To Us

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 127:3 Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. O-bservation: Here the Psalmist wrote that Children are a reward of the Lord to people here on earth. Whether a person follows Jesus or not, the Lord still blesses them. Rich, or poor, or in between, God blesses people with children. Sometimes a child can pull generations of his or her family out of poverty into prosperity. There are so many benefits that children bring into our lives. Truly the reward is, “From God To Us.” A-pplication: If you’re a parent, what...

His advice to the young man—remember, Solomon was only 20 years old when he took over for his father—was to simply “Be Strong, Act Like A Man.” That was David’s directive, “To The Next Generation.” A-pplication: For me, when I consider this verse, I always question what makes a man a man besides his gender at birth, and what if...

One Man = Peace For A Generation

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Judges 3:30 That day Moab was made subject to Israel, and the land had peace for eighty years. O-bservation: This is the story of ONE MAN named Ehud who personally killed the king of Moab and escaped. After he had done so there was confusion in Moab, giving the people of Israel a window to follow Ehud’s command, and they defeated Moab. When they did, Israel had peace for eighty years. “One Man = Peace For A Generation!” A-pplication: Perhaps you’ve read in these posts before about the power that just one person has when united...

Whaaat???

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Judges 2:10 After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel. O-bservation: Here the writer of the book of Judges says that after the death of Joshua and his generation of people, the new generation of Israelites knew nothing of God, or what He had done for them! A-pplication: My first response every time I read this passage is ... "Whaaat???" To think that after Ai, Joshua never lost another battle. To think that God provided all of those...
