What are we to do when we feel the conflict between good and evil is tearing us apart?

Learning From God's Word

2 Kings 15:23-16:20
Within every one of us, there is conflict. It is the conflict between good and evil (2 Kings 15:34,24,28; 2 Kings 16:2). Paul experienced this conflict: ‘I can will what is right, but I cannot do it. I don’t do the good I want to do. Instead, I do the evil that I don’t want to do… When I want to do right, evil lies close at hand’ (Romans 7:18-19,21). What are we to do when we feel this conflict tearing us apart? We are to confess our sin – ‘Wretched man that I am!’ We are to trust in Christ – ‘Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!’ (Romans 7:24-25). While we are in this earthly body, the conflict rages on. We ‘wait in patience for deliverance by the Lord’. When He returns, we will…

Glory to God Alone

Psalm 97
21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

“1) The Lord reigneth, let the earth rejoice! Let the multitude of isles be glad thereof!
2) Clouds and darkness are round about Him; righteousness and judgment are the habitation of His throne.

Sunday October 30, 2016 Speak Lord

Bobbi's Daily Reflections

The Lord came and stood there, calling out as before, “Samuel, Samuel!”  Then Samuel said, “Speak Lord, for Your servant is listening.”  1 Samuel 3:10

Samuel was very young and his teacher Eli was very old.  As an earlier verse stated In those days, the word of the Lord was rare. 1 Samuel 3:1  So it was no wonder that Eli didn’t realize the first three times that Samuel reported to Eli’s bedside hearing his name being called.  After realizing what was happening, Eli told Samuel what to say when Samuel heard God calling his name again.  “Speak Lord, for Your servant is listening.”  Are exactly the right words to say when God speaks.  So why do I forget to say them myself when I hear God’s voice?

The biggest issue is that I am not listening.  I have no excuse…  I know that God is speaking, often! …

The FBI and Clinton: Too Little Too Late?

Truth2Freedom's Blog

You would have read about the FBI reopening its case against the crooked Hillary. Of course there has been an ongoing investigation which she has managed to dodge, evade and pretend is no biggee. The latest revelations in today’s press may be too late to impact on November 8, but we can always hope some sanity – and some justice – nonetheless prevails.

Here is how one news report opens on this breaking story:

clinton-hilThe Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has reopened its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email system as secretary of state after finding new evidence on seized devices belonging to Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin, according to Fox News. Donald Trump called the stunning announcement “bigger than Watergate”, and Clinton appeared blindsided by the news, declining to mention it during a rally in Iowa just 11 days out of the election.

Grow Up


God does not play games – children do. God does not invent games – children do (and some grown-ups – to make money). Paul writes of putting “away childish things” (1Co 11.11). An affluent influence pulls men to remain boys in time/money and spend both time/money on games and play. By contrast, God’s man, walking in step with the Eternal, has little time for man’s passing “time-killing-games.”
