Living water in jars of clay—that’s essentially what wells are when mentioned in the Bible. Jesus is the living water that flows out of believers who are walking wells in this earth. The stone that Jacob rolled off of the mouth of the well foreshadows the rolling away of the great stone from Jesus’ tomb. But this stone will never have to be put back over the well again. Living water flows into eternity for both Jew and Gentile.Ever...

God promised the children of Israel a land flowing with milk and honey as they wandered in the wilderness for decades. And just as they were on the cusp of crossing over into it, a group rose up and asked to stay in nearby cities east of the Jordan because the land was beneficial for their flocks. Instead of moving into their Promised Land, they opted for ease and peace in the border land. What they saw was enough for them rather t...

Most of us are waiting for something from God. And most of us think waiting sucks.

But it’s in the wait that we learn from God and about God. This microwave society makes waiting seem unnecessary . But waiting provides lessons that we can’t get any other way, strengthens us, makes us realize God makes things happen—not us.

As the people of Jericho were shut in, it describes not only a physical defense, but it also represents a resistance to the plans of God.

Comfort can create a place that you don’t want to leave. A place that closes you off to the new that God wants to do. In America we live in a land of plenty, a land of comfort. If our comfortable circumstances change, our comfort level changes. Don’t depend on your walls of comfort and ease—especi...

The word "unity" conjures up images of a utopian world. In a perfect world, unity would reign among nations, people groups, marriages, and in relationships. Sadly, the world we live in is a broken world full of broken relationships. Since the fall, every human has lived in broken relationships with others and God. But God’s aim for us has always been unity—both with Him and with each other. So how are we to strive for unity...

What an exciting moment in Israel's history the return to Jerusalem after exile must have been. The Israelite nation endured seventy long years in captivity, and then in the blink of an eye, God turned things around. They could hardly believe it. It was too good to be true—except it was. God is in the restoration business and we need to believe this for our lives as well.

As servants of Jesus, we are all on a pilgrimage. The idea of pilgrimage paints the picture of traveling upon a path that is marked out and set before us to make an upward journey. This is not about blazing our own trails to God, but about walking in the well-worn path of faith of Jesus Christ and the saints before us.

We must learn to open God’s book—the Bible. God has spoken so our aim is to try to understand what God has said. The more we study the Word, the more freely the light comes. “The unfolding of your words gives light” means that God’s Word gives light, but also that this light grows increasingly with our understanding of the Word. As you allow God’s Word into your heart through studying and meditating on it, your heart is flooded wit...

The book of Judges tells us everyone did what was right in his own eyes. Right is the same word for judge—to make straight. Every single person determined what “right” was. This led to anarchy.

This is a dangerous, lawless time marked by moral in decline. At the beginning of the period there is no clear leader to follow Joshua, and by the end there is no leader at all. 

The book of Judges includes some of the worst stories of the Bib...

Ahmaud Arbery was murdered by two men who followed him in a pick-up truck. They were not arrested for two months. The first thing we do when witness a gross injustice like this is look to God and ask: why aren’t you doing anything God? A lot of these times God gets the blame for what humans do apart from Him.

God can intervene, but we are promised a perfect city in heaven—not on earth.

Imagine how God must feel watching his creation ...

Freedom in Christ can be a tricky thing if looked at a through the wrong lens. Jesus Christ died to offer us freedom from sin. But how much freedom do we have? Are there boundaries to our liberty? Or can we just do whatever makes us happy?

Notice that deception is always used against a person who is acting as an enemy of God—seemingly getting in the way of God’s plan. 

Most of the women who used deception in the Bible either worked to protect the lineage of God’s chosen people—specifically the coming Messiah or they were part of Jesus’ lineage. The enemy who deceived Eve—who was to carry the royal messianic seed—ended being tripped up by women who worked to keep the r...

The times we are living in now with COVID-19, being quarantined and so many deaths and unknowns, fear is a constant. It’s similar to what the disciples faced after Jesus' death. With Jesus gone, they faced unknowns and fear—locked behind doors. But Jesus came to them with a promise of peace.

The Day of Atonement was the only time during the year when the high priest would enter the Holy of Holies in the innermost chamber of the Temple (or Tabernacle) to make atonement for the sins of all Israel. On this day, the high priest would remove his official priestly garments, which were very ornate in exchange for a linen garment. Jesus brings this day fully to life with His resurrection and makes this truth personal for your ...

Our identity in Jesus is no longer tied to genealogy records that can be tampered with or lost. We have our names in the Lamb's book of life—our identity is firm. And our identity is tied to our purpose—knowing why God made us and then walking that out.

Pharaoh ordered two midwives to kill Israelite baby boys. But they defied government order. What these women did was unseen and unknown at the time. But God blessed them beyond measure and used them in a big way.

Many times we think it’s the spotlight, the stage, the well-known name that has the biggest impact. Yet it’s often the woman who is quietly doing the work of the Lord behind the scenes who is most esteemed. She is the one b...

God used a pagan king's heart to do the work of rallying the people to rebuild God's temple. Maybe you’ve been praying for God to stir up change through someone who YOU think can make change. Perhaps God has someone altogether different in mind. Whether it’s your baby daddy, your hard to deal with boss, co-worker, or a difficult neighbor, God can stir their hearts to actions that will aid in blessings and restoration for yo...

God used His creative power to make something in His image and it was good. 

In chapter 11 with the Tower of Babel, man uses his creative power to make something to promote his image.

Their aim was to build for themselves a city and tower with its top in the heavens and to make a name for themselves. A main part of their goal was to stop themselves from being dispersed. God didn’t call man to put down roots in one place and build tow...
