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...

Please Forgive Me For What I’ve Forgotten About

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 19:12 But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. O-bservation: King David had such a stack of hidden sins that he had pretty much forgotten most of them. He asked the Lord to give him a clean slate. A-pplication: I really don't see these as the major things that most of us call the "Big Sins." More than likely, these were little things that should have been made right at the time. A simple, "I was wrong, will you forgive me?" Or, "I wish I wouldn't have said that." Or, an evil...

Jesus, You’re All I Need

O-bservation: King David speaks for all of us when he says, "Lord, You are my portion. Whatever I have, You alone have made me secure." A-pplication: I really don't see these as major things that most of us call the "Big Sins." More than likely these were little things that should have been made right at the time. A simple, "I was wrong, will you forgive me?" Or, "I wish I wouldn't have said that." Or, an evil thought clouded...

I Wonder What We’re Missing?

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Exodus 31:15 For six days work is to be done, but the seventh day is a day of sabbath rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death. O-bservation: The observation this AM is WOW! In the Old Covenant the Jewish people were to obey the Sabbath and keep it holy, or DIE! A-pplication: I've read this passage more times than I can count, but this AM it hit me hard. Instead of judging the passage, my first thought was, "I Wonder What We're Missing?" In...

Is My Problem Just An Excuse?

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Acts 7:22 Moses was educated in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful in speech and action. O-bservation: Stephen was one of the first seven deacons appointed by the Apostles in the Early Church. When he spoke before the Sanhedrin, Israel's ruling religious order, he mentioned that Moses was a man of powerful SPEECH and wisdom. A-pplication: Everything in Stephen's speech is accurate except this one line that draws into question that premise. We remember that when God spoke to Moses at the burning bush, telling him to lead His people out of Egypt’s...
