There’s A Reason For The devil

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Judges 1:19 The Lord was with the men of Judah. They took possession of the hill country, but they were unable to drive the people from the plains, because they had chariots fitted with iron. O-bservation: After Joshua’s death, the land of Israel was led by a series of Judges. Joshua had never completely driven the former owners out of the lands they had conquered in the promised land.

The Only Reason

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 1 Corinthians 15:10a But by the grace of God I am what I am. O-bservation: If you trace the life of the Apostle Paul, you will find that he was highly skilled in the law and lacked no degree of scholarship as a young associate of the Sanhedrin. He was the same man who was changed by the power of God when he was on his way to Damascus to arrest "Followers of Jesus" who were residing there. Paul was so turned around by Jesus, that he planted churches as a missionary throughout Asia...
