Hearing God’s voice

One day the powerful prophet Elijah found himself hiding in a cave. He was running from the army’s of Jezebel, who had threatened him after he had destroyed 500 of her false prophets.

So here he was, a man of God doing what God led him to do and now he is running for his life and hiding in a cave.

Sometimes we can do what we are led to do by God and the outcome isn’t exactly what we expected. At times like this it can be difficult to remember that God is still in charge. We can’t know what God is doing or where He is taking us.

Obviously he couldn’t hide from God, because in 1 Kings 19:11, The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.”

Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, ...

From dust to dust

Both secular science and the Scriptures state that man was formed from dust. The big bang theory, more or less, holds that planet Earth and all its life forms developed from stardust, while the biblical account states that man was formed by God from the dust of the earth, which he also created (and woman from the rib of Adam). And in yet another similarity, both world views state that man returns to dust. What is the difference, and why is it important?

In Isaiah 40:12, centuries before the physical sciences even conceived of these phenomena, Isaiah said that God “has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, and marked off the heavens by the span, and calculated the dust of the earth by the measure, and weighed the mountains in a balance, and the hills in a pair of scales.”

Genesis 1–2 tells us that living things, human beings included, were made of dust of the ground. “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7). And out of the ground, God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man (Genesis 2:19). After the fall of man through sin (Genesis 3:17), the ...

Jesus ... the bridge builder

The harvest is plentiful

MATTHEW 9:35-38 35 And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

Jesus said, “The harvest truly is plenteous.” There are people to reach; there is a work to be done. And of the greatest dangers of the modern church is that we don’t see this as the most important work. Most everything else comes before the work of reaching the lost with the Word of God.

As Jesus ministered to the needs of the people all around Him, He met their physical needs, but He was able to see beyond just that. Jesus was able to see the deepest needs of their hearts. As Jesus looked at the multitudes around Him, He was moved ...
