Fretting about tomorrow

My son, Why are you fretting about tomorrow?  Have I ever failed to provide?  Have I ever failed to lead and deliver?  Yes, you have gotten out of my will.  In stubborn rebellion you marched off to solve your own problems your own way.  Was I not there?  Did I not discipline, draw you back […]

Good from Evil

Dear Servant, You live in a sinful world. From the greatest king or president to the poorest beggar, all are sinful. I remind you of this to help you remember the nature of the world in which you live. That you are bombarded daily by sin and its effects should be no surprise to you. […]


Dear Servant, Do you remember the words written by my servant Jeremiah? “You will find me when you seek me with your whole heart”. You seem so fearful that you will miss the way. You seem so concerned that somehow you will take a wrong step, get off the path, and miss the way. While […]

Your Salvation

Dear Servant, You do not understand. Your salvation is complete in Christ. It is finished. Nothing can be added to it or taken away from it. My Son did his perfect work and there is nothing else left to do. You are saved from your sin and yourself. It is precisely for this reason you […]

River of Grace

Dear Servant, Do you see the river as it flows by? Can you guess how many cubic feet of water are flowing by per second? With a river so wide it is almost impossible to comprehend the volume and force of the river as it passes. Though there is no earthly comparison, the flow of […]

Hang Out

Dear Servant, I long to spend time with you, to reflect, hang out, and get to know each other better. Often, it seems you only come to me when you need something. The prayers are always, “Our Father, help my car to get fixed, provide for my needs, keep my children safe, answer this difficult […]

Constantly Saving

Dear Servant, Of course I could! By the power of my spirit I could do a miracle in your life. I could overcome that sin that so easily trips you up. You could walk on and not even notice the temptation. If I did that, what would be different in your heart? Would you value […]

Eternal Dwelling

Dear Servant, I know you are homeless. I know you have no piece of ground in your name, no deed or title to a house, no little cabin, no shed, not even a lean-to to call your own. I know this makes you feel rootless, adrift and uncared for. But I have only allowed this […]

Heart Guard

Dear Servant, Living in the knowledge of the constant presence of my Holy Spirit is so important for many reasons. In particular is the guarding of your heart. Where is the defense for your heart? What is the filter that leads you in truth and protects you from believing lies? What voice cries out when […]


Dear Servant, You live in interesting times.  So much of what you do day in and out is observed.  From traffic cameras at every intersection, video monitoring in the store, online tracking of every site you visit and everything you purchase, you are always being watched. The uncomfortable truth for humanity is that I am […]
