Spread the Corner of Your Garment …

Ruth 3

Spread the Corner of Your Garment ...“Spread the corner of your garment over me.” Ruth 3:9

Lord, this is my prayer today. Spread the corner of your garment over me.

May I find you in “good spirits,” approach quietly and lay down in your presence.

May I be found by you to be a man of noble character. As surely as you live and reign, Lord, redeem me. And redeem my two books from Harper Collins. Free Skull Creek Stakeout and Dead Low Tide.

The Word of God inflicts hurt on us more than sin ever could, because sin dulls our senses. Oswald Chambers

There is never any mistaking the pain of the Lord’s Word by His children, but the moment that pain is felt is the very moment at which God reveals His truth to us. Oswald Chambers

The Lord’s Hand Has Gone Against Me …

Ruth 1

The Lord's Hand Has Gone Against Me ...“The Lord’s hand has gone against me!” Ruth 1:13

“The Almighty has made my life very bitter.” Ruth 1:20

“The Lord has afflicted me.” Ruth 1:21

“The Lord Almighty has brought misfortune upon me.” Ruth 1:21

The Lord came to the aid of his people. Ruth 1:6

Lord, when it seems that your hand has turned against me, come to me. When my soul is bitter, come to me. When I am afflicted, come to me. When misfortune overtakes me, may I run and overtake you.

Where you go, I will go. Where you stay, I will stay. Your people will be my people. You are my God.

We impoverish and weaken God’s ministry in us the moment we forget He is almighty. Oswald Chambers

The reason some of us are such poor examples of Christ is that we failed to recognize that Christ is almighty. Oswald Chambers

The thing that approaches the very limits of God’s power is the very thing we as disciples of Jesus ought to believe He will do. Oswald Chambers

Lord, I know you can fix this mess with Harper Collins. Please fix.

Stop Doubting and Believe …

John 21

Stop Doubting and Believe ...“Stop doubting and believe.” John 21:27

“Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believed in me.” John 21:29

Lord, I claim your blessing for those who believe but have not seen you. Perhaps today you will see fit to release my Caden Chronicles books from the grasp of Harper Collins. I confess that I have not always believed you would help. Instead, as Oswald Chambers said, I have believed in my own abilities. I have not believed in your almighty power apart from my understanding of it.
