“And he (Jahaziel) said, 'Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the Lord to you: "Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s”'" (2 Chronicles 20:15).

We started out on our trip, a long cross-continental journey to see family in the Pacific Northwest and Western South Dakota, with no GPS unit. Technically we had one, but it stopped tracking at the border of Illinois, dropping us into a void of non-digital migration. What could we do? Luckily, being fans of maps we were well supplied and it forced us to renew a skill we had neglected, map reading.

A blog post by Rachel Henderson

Have you ever seen a child after being told to clean his room, drag his feet, fold his arms, and lug himself ever so slowly towards that dreaded room? You know he is walking in the right direction, but it will take him three hours to get there, and once he gets there he sits down to read a book or play instead of getting down to business. In a stirring sermon I listened to recently, the speaker asked if that just might be a description of us as Christians. I am a child of God—that’s what I became when I was submerged under that water and had hands laid on me.

Stewardship 101

Just what does the Bible have to say about money? Are we as Christians held to some higher standard when it comes to money? Are there practical tips in Scripture we can use today with regard to our own budgets? I believe the answer to those questions is a resounding yes! Rather than go through the specifics of how to create a budget, plan, save, and so forth, I want to examine the fundamentals of monetary stewardship and how it begins in the heart (There are other excellent resources for those other things, such as UCG’s booklet Managing Your Finances).

A friend of mine recently moved away to attend college. As the move date approached, she started questioning her decision and asking herself if she was doing the right thing. This questioning is normal and it took me back to that time in my life.

Verse of the Day

2nd Chronicles 20:1-4

[1] It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle. [2] Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazontamar, which is Engedi. [3] And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. [4] And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the LORD: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the LORD.

Hi ehvizdos,

I understand you being attached to your church. However, if it holds Easter/Christmas services, & you’ve been convicted those celebrations are un-Christian, then what God says matters more than what others say. Your church may be sincere, but we must wholly follow God (Mk 12:29-30). What does He...

When I watch a Western from now on I will think of this analogy! Thanks!

This is so important to remember - thanks for this reminder.

Division always starts with whispers and slander. Lucifer would have started working on the other angels with slander - probably small insinuations to cause them to question God's intentions toward them. Then he built those whispers into much bigger...
