When God Went To Prison

WHEN GOD GOES TO PRISON   The story of Joseph is filled with a variety of truths which speak to our situations in life, particularly those times when we feel trapped and unable to extract ourselves from the prison-like surroundings which hem us in.  Perhaps you sense just such a feeling.  Trapped.  Encircled.  Confined.  If you do, look around.  You…

He Sees Me!

GOD SEES ME!   Running from issues which had created an intolerable situation, a woman we know as Hagar found herself alone and isolated in her struggle.

God Is On His Throne

…“Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”                                                                                                  Revelation 7:10   The letter of John we call Revelation has quite a few twists and turns.

Hard Day

Having a tough day?  They seem to come around quite often and can sometimes be so grueling, it makes one wonder if they are ever going to end.  The Apostle Paul had a tough day or two.  Let’s drop in on one and see if we can learn anything from how he handled it.   First of all, the man…
