Daily Bible Podcast Day 363 – Revelation 10-14

October 29, 2013 in Podcasts

Scripture:
““If anyone is to go into captivity,
into captivity they will go.
If anyone is to be killed with the sword,
with the sword they will be killed.”

This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.” ~Revelation 13:10

Observation:
This verse reinforces something that we all know. We are not in charge. If God’s will is for something to happen, it will happen. There’s nothing we can do about that.

Application:
I need to show patience and endurance in my trials. God’s purposes are the one’s that will prevail and anything that happens to me is in line with what God is doing. This is hard to accept sometimes, but true.

Prayer:
Father, sometimes it is hard to trust that truly everything is under Your control. The world seems like it is headed the wrong way. Help me to patiently endure and stand firm, especially when I don’t understand the big picture.

Daily Bible Podcast Day 249 – Ezekiel 29-32, Revelation 11

July 7, 2013 in Podcasts

Play

Scripture:
“‘I will bring them back from captivity and return them to Upper Egypt, the land of their ancestry. There they will be a lowly kingdom. It will be the lowliest of kingdoms and will never again exalt itself above the other nations. I will make it so weak that it will never again rule over the nations.'” ~Ezekiel 29:14-15

Observation:
God is speaking through Ezekiel. At the time of this writing, Egypt was a mighty nation that had ruled over many. We know today of its riches and power through archaeological findings. However, Egypt drew God’s punishment. As a result, the once-great kingdom has never again been great. Today, it is certainly not a world power as it was many years ago.

Application:
Anytime I might start to doubt or forget the greatness of God, I only need to think about the “predictions” made ahead of time that came true. Egypt was brought low by God and remains so to this day, as further proof of God’s dominion.

Prayer:
Father, You are great and powerful and whatever You want to happen, happens. Help my occasional doubts of Your Kingship. Show Your power in my life to break down spiritual strongholds and spiritual enemies. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
