The Lord is Near :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-up #32

When was the last time you were made aware of your sin and you took the time to repent? If you’re like me, it may take you a minute to remember when last this happened. Confession and repentance are a crucial part of a Christians walk with the Lord and may need to happen more often than we think. This post may contain some affiliate links for your convenience.

Boldly Preaching Jesus as Christ :: Quietly Through Thursday LinkUp #29

Boldly preaching Jesus as the Christ takes boldness, the type of boldness that comes from the Holy Spirit. Do you want this boldness? Of course you do, so lets read our Bibles, look at some awesome examples of boldness and then pray of an extra measure ourselves. This post may contain some affiliate links for your convenience.

No Inheritance :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-Up # 28

“Only to the tribe of Levi he had given no inheritance; the sacrifices of the LORD God of Israel made by fire are their inheritance, as He said to them.” ~Joshua 12:14 Finally, after decades of wondering in the wilderness, Joshua leads the Israelites into the land promised to them by God and it was time to see which tribe would get which chunk of land. Reuben would get land. So would Simeon and Judah and Issachar. Zebulun would get land. The tribes of Dan and Naphtali also. Gad and Asher. The tribes of Josephs […]

Confess :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-up # 27

And it shall be, when he is guilty in any of these matters, that he shall confess that he has sinned in that thing: and he shall bring his trespass offering to the Lord for his sin which he has committed… Leviticus 5:5-6 Confess. It means to show one’s self as guilty. Sin. It means to miss or wonder away from the path of righteousness. Sin and confess. These aren’t words that I like to talk about too much. Well, at least I don’t like talking about them when it comes to my own sin […]

An Angel Before You :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-Up #26

Behold, I send an Angel before you to keep you in the way and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. Exodus 23:20 “Behold I send and angel before you…” Not behind you or beside you. But before you. In front and leading the way. Beware of Him and obey His voice; do not provoke Him, for He will not pardon your transgressions; for My name is in Him. Exodus 23:21 “Beware of Him…” Be mindful of him. Do not forget him or forget to look to him for direction. “Obey His […]

Here I Am (Again) :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-up #25

So when the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” – Exodus 3:4 I live in America. I have a television. I have four kids and an over-active dog. So nearly everyday I see something strange. Something outlandish. Something that should make me pause and go huh?  But to tell you the truth I don’t always pause. I don’t always let my curiosity win. I don’t often take a good look at whatever the […]

She Went to Inquire of the Lord :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-up #24

I don’t have much to write on this Quietly Through Thursday. One, because it’s been a bit of a rough work week for me and I’m tired. And two, because God’s word, in all its simplicity, can speak profound volumes more than I ever can. So let me just get right to it. While reading Quietly Through the Bible this last month I noticed three examples of prayer that I knew I needed to share with you here. Example #1 And when (Jesus) had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by […]

Here I Am :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-up #23

Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then He said, “Take now your son, your only son Issac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” So Abraham rose early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son; and he split the wood for the burnt […]

The Breath of Life :: Quietly Through Link-up #22

“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 being.” Genesis 2:7 There is currently a song on the radio that has a lyric that I keep mulling over in my mind. The chorus starts, “It’s Your breath in our lungs…” Genesis 2:7 confirms that it is the breath of God in our lungs. His breath gave us, humans formed from dust, life. The chorus goes on to say “…so we pour out our praise to You only.” […]
