The God Of Reason

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Jonah 4:11 And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left-and also many animals? O-bservation: These are the words of God Almighty to Jonah, his prophet. Jonah had rejected God’s directive to him to go to Nineveh and preach. Jonah didn’t like the people of Nineveh and so jumped on a boat headed in the other direction. A storm came up, and Jonah knew that if they didn’t throw him...

God Answers Prayer!

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 2 Kings 20:6 “I will add fifteen years to your life. And I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.” O-bservation: God had sent Isaiah the prophet to tell Hezekiah to get his personal effects in order as he was going to die.

No One Is Exempt From My Prayers

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 1 Timothy 2:1 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people. O-bservation: St. Paul said to his young associate, Timothy, that it was his urging of all people of Christian faith that they would offer petitions and prayers and intercession and thanksgiving for ALL people. In the next verse, he said this would include kings (political leaders) and everyone who is in authority. That means I am still commanded to pray for those I dislike. In other words, “No One Is Exempt From My Prayers.” A-pplication: The...

When You Think Jesus Isn’t Listening

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Habakkuk 1:2a How long, Lord, must I call for help, but you do not listen? O-bservation: The prophet Habakkuk prayed, but he was sure the Lord wasn’t listening to his prayers based upon this opening statement. In his short prophecy, Habakkuk had two complaints in his prayer to the Lord, and the Lord gave him two answers to his complaints. In the end, Habakkuk said, “The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights” (3:19). Jesus’ response to Habakkuk’s...

He Has NO Limitations!!

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Isaiah 59:1 Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. O-bservation: Judah was perhaps wondering why the people’s prayers were not being answered. God let them know that His arm was long enough to save them, and His ear could hear any cry they cried, but that their sins had separated them from Him. A-pplication: At different times in my life I have carried something in my heart that wasn’t right toward someone else. In those times, I’ve tried to pray and heard nothing back...
