Pillar of fire

In our study through the Bible, we find God speaking to Moses, “Then the Lord said: “I am making a covenant with you. Before all your people I will do wonders never before done in any nation in all the world. The people you live among will see how awesome is the work that I, […]

God Provides for Us

God Provides for Us

This week in our study of the Story Bible, we see that the Nation of Israel has been delivered from Pharaoh and his army at the Red Sea. God miraculously delivers the nation of Israel by parting the Red Sea and letting them cross, and then drowning Pharaoh and his horses, and his chariots in the […]

When God Speaks

When God Speaks

I always remember hearing God speaking to my spirit. I know that He has always been with me. For some people it might seem strange to hear “When God Speaks” but in my mom’s house God always was speaking. Back then, I didn’t realize how growing up in a spirit filled home would help carry […]

Unqualified but Willing Servants

We see in the book of Genesis that Abraham was a willing servant of God’s will, but he didn’t seem to have any of the qualifications that we might expect from someone who was to become a “Father of Nations”. Abraham and Sarah were well beyond child bearing when God called them to leave their […]

Don’t Be Misled “This letter is from James, a slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am writing to the “twelve tribes”—Jewish believers scattered abroad. Greetings!

Don’t Miss the Spring, God is Speaking

Let the godly sing for joy to the Lord; it is fitting for the pure to praise him. Praise the Lord with melodies on the lyre; make music for him on the ten-stringed harp. Sing a new song of praise to him; play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy. For the word of […]
