No Shortcut

Matthew 4:1-11 Satan uses wrestling to tempt us.  His goal is to destroy Jesus’ character.  God uses wrestling to test us and His goal is to strengthen our character. We have to ask ourselves a few questions; Is Jesus a king concerned only with meeting physical needs?   Is Jesus a king who will use spectacular […]

The Cover Up

The Cover Up

Isaiah 1:18 I have this beauty trick I use frequently when I polish my nails. Once my nails are freshly polished, it only takes a matter of time until nicks appear and the polish starts to wear off. Instead of removing all of the polish and repainting every nail, I simply cover up the chips by painting […]

Back Seat Driver

Back Seat Driver

Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV Have you ever been driving and someone in the back seat or the passenger’s seat thinks they are driving instead of you? I have and you know how annoying and frustrating that is. If you look at this situation in a different way, we kind of do the same thing when it […]

Good to Wrestle

Good to Wrestle

Job 23:1-12 In today’s scripture, Job wrestles with God by being direct, honest and bold. You can almost hear him saying, “Lord shall it be your will or mine?” We don’t know what he was thinking but in the end, wrestling with God was a good thing. Why is it good to wrestle with God? […]

Cast All Your Anxiety

Cast All Your Anxiety

1 Peter 5:7 This verse is all about trusting God and putting all your troubles in His hands. Let’s face it; you’ve probably had one of those days where everything that can go wrong does. How do you deal with it? My roommate and I just discovered that screaming into a pillow does work! But in all […]

Focus Forward

Focus Forward

Genesis 19:1–29 If you are anything like me, you have probably made a lot of mistakes in your life. If only we hadn’t married so soon. If only we had more money. If only we had done this instead of that, and on and on. Regrets are damaging and keep our eyes fixed on the rear-view mirror instead of […]

Suffering

Suffering

Job 3:1-11, 13 Nothing tries our will and forces us to wrestle like the issue of suffering. When Job cries out in chapter 3 with these intense words, he gives us a model for wrestling with God in our suffering. Job shares his real emotions and he did not sin. Usually we respond in one […]

Division

Division

Roman 16:17 Division has been so destructive throughout history. The division of countries, division of states within countries, divisions in companies, churches and even families – division causes destruction everywhere. Granted, sometime divisions are for the better, but for the most part they are not. In our scripture today, Paul is using the example of division […]

“A Holy Moment”

“A Holy Moment”

On the last night of church camp when the invitation would be given to nearly 100 elementary aged children to accept Jesus as their Savior and Lord,  I walked alongside the children as they moved from the camp fire to the chapel. They sang and prepared their hearts along the way. I had been the […]

Jonah

Jonah

Jonah 4:1-11 Every single one of us are wrestlers when it comes to our will and God’s will. Jonah was surrendered to the law of God and what God could do for Jonah in Jonah’s life, but he had never surrendered to what God was up to in the world. The danger of being a […]
