Show Me What You’ve Got

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 1 Corinthians 4:20 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. O-bservation: Paul the Great Apostle defended his apostolic authority in this chapter. He made it very clear that many folks talk about the Christian walk, but others actually deliver with power and signs following. A-pplication: You’ve heard it said before, “Talk Is Cheap!” Anyone can talk about what God can do, others go into action and actually deliver the goods in the power of God’s might. When that occurs, there’s a whole lotta questions that don’t have to be asked...

Why Not You Too?

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” O-bservation: With these words, God is calling a young Jeremiah to fulfill his role as a prophet to the nations. He tells him He knew him before he was born, and He set Jeremiah apart even then for a great purpose. A-pplication: Certainly this was the direct call of the Almighty God of Israel upon young Jeremiah to be a prophet. There is no denying this fact. However,...

Don’t Talk

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Zephaniah 1:7a Be silent before the Sovereign Lord, for the day of the Lord is near. O-bservation: Here Zephaniah is warning the people of God, who have turned away from the Lord, of impending judgment to come. He tells them that to be in the presence of the Sovereign Lord, in this case, simply means "Don't Talk!" A-pplication: Let's move this to our present time. We know the scripture tells us to "Seek the Lord while he may be found" (Is. 55:6). It also says "Call to me and I will answer you" (Jer. 33:3). So there...

Wait For It

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Habakkuk 2:3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. O-bservation: This was a prophecy that, at the time, even confused the Prophet. But in speaking of the end, and the future calamities of those who do not follow Jesus, he was absolutely correct. All there is to do is ... "Wait For It!" A-pplication: Now I'd like to do a 180 on you with this passage. What about you? What about your dreams,...

Jesus OK, But Jesse?

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Isaiah 11:1 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. O-bservation: Approximately 700 years before Jesus was born, Isaiah the Prophet predicted it would happen in this passage. Just as remarkable, Isaiah reaches approximately 300 years back in time to say that Jesus' forefather would be a man named Jesse, who obviously was in the grave already. A-pplication: Both of these predictions are absolutely impossible except for the providence of God directing the pen of the Prophet. I suppose we can all agree, since it's after the fact,...
