  • Turn to God in bad times, and good

    When do we most often cry out to God?
    Usually it is in time of great need or distress. It often happens when we have had a personal loss, financial loss or perhaps a death or illness.
    Belief in God during hard times is a normal human attribute. I inherently believe even atheists, deep down, realize this whole thing isn’t one big mistake and that God does exist.
    It is certainly fine to call out to God when we are in distress, but how important is it for us to do the same during good times, too?

  • When things go bad, where do you turn?

    The book of Job is truly an amazing story.
    I often wonder how people say the Bible isn’t true or that it’s been changed or man-made.
    Such rich stories are hard to fathom being anything than other than God’s holy word in my opinion.
    I try and relate the plight of Job to my own life.
    How many times have I experienced failure or loss or problems in general and asked God why me?
    Job was a devout servant of God.
    He was powerful, successful and had many possessions and a large family.

  • Do you worship God, TV or churches?

    Much of the Old Testament reveals how many times the children of Israel strayed away from God by worshiping idols.
    Idolatry is basically the idea of placing faith in things created by man rather than things created by God.
    You hopefully remember the golden calf, baals, etc.  Are we much different?  It’s easy to place faith in our own accomplishments, our fine homes, jobs, cars — perhaps even our giant church buildings.

  • Worriers aren’t putting their faith in God

    I worry about everything.
    I worry about bills, friendships, mistakes, today, tomorrow — you name it, I worry a lot.
    In these uncertain times and with the state of the world, who doesn’t worry? Well, I often have to check myself and remember what the word of God tells us about worry.
    In Psalm 37:8, “do not fret — it leads only to evil.”
    The synoptic books Matthew and Luke both have specific similar commands to the disciples from Christ.

  • God will forgive even a sinner like me

    I am a sinner.
    I often worry that my own sin is too great for me, and that God surely cannot forgive all of my wrongdoings.
    Thankfully, I know that he can and will forgive you and me if we humble ourselves before him.
    I enjoy reading the Old Testament books of Kings and Chronicles because I often can see glimpses of who God is.
    These four books tell much of the rise and fall of kings of Israel and Judah. One such king was Manasseh, who learned a great lesson regarding God’s great power and his willingness to forgive.
