Alive Together

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Colossians 2:8-15

Two verses from our passage today spoke loudly to my heart.

"And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross" (vs. 13-14).

I've been a Christ-follower for many, many years, so I know well and with certainty what Paul writes in verses 14-15. But because I've been a believer for a long time, I can tend to take what I know for granted. So as I took in Paul's message to the church at Colossae today, my heart was thankful for this passage and how it is filled with reminders of who God is and what He has done out of His great love for us.

How often do you take time to ponder the gift of your salvation and being alive in Christ? Why is this important? I invite you to join me today in telling God that you remember and are thankful for His great love. Tami

Rooted

Today's reading: Colossians 2:6-7; Psalm 1:1-3

"Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving" (Colossians 2:6-7).

The instruction Paul gives in Colossians 2:6-7 immediately brought to mind the message found in Psalm 1:1-3, which tells us that a person who delights in God's Word is ". . .like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers" (vs. 3).

We can put down roots in many places, but if it's our desire to live rightly and fully for God ("rooted and built up in him"), we must be intentional about filling our minds with God's instructions for us.

Would you describe yourself as delighting in God's Word? What do these two passages reveal about the importance of regularly taking in, considering, and then living out what God shows us in and through His Word? Tami

Faithful God

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 106:1-48

"[God] is good, for his steadfast love endures forever" is the opening proclamation of Psalm 106. The psalmist then shows us the truth of this declaration in the remaining verses of his song by looking back at the journey of the Israelites. Despite being God's chosen people for whom God had performed wondrous miracles and works, the Israelites were repeatedly unfaithful to God. And yet God didn't turn away or abandon them, even in His anger. These words in verses 43-45 spoke volumes to me:

"Many times he delivered them, but they were rebellious in their purposes and were brought low through their iniquity. Nevertheless, he looked upon their distress, when he heard their cry. For their sake he remembered his covenant, and relented according to the abundance of his steadfast love."

What does Psalm 106 reveal about God as our Father? What about His love for us? How has God shown Himself faithful to you and your family, even in times when you've turned away or been disobedient? Tami

History Lesson

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 105:1-45

Psalm 105 gives us a condensed, mini history lesson of the nation of Israel from Abraham through Moses. What a storyline it is! As I progressed through the timeline, my thoughts were drawn to God's extraordinary plan and provision. I was reminded once again of how so often God's ways are beyond our human way of thinking.

What does this Psalm reveal about God's ways? What does it reveal about His character and faithfulness? What comfort do you draw from this look back at God's plan and His provision? Tami

Knit Together

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Colossians 2:1-5

Paul is genuinely concerned (in a good way) for the Christ-followers in Colossae. It's evident from his writing that his heart is moved as he thinks about them and their spiritual growth and journey. Paul's desire is for these believers to be encouraged and to bond together in love. He uses the phrase "being knit together in love" as he describes for this new church how they should live (vs. 2). That same phrase applies to us today as well.

I like this phrase a lot because of the way it uses something we're familiar with—knitting or something that is knitted—as an analogy for what our relationships with other believers should look like. When I was much younger (grade school age), a favorite aunt taught me how to knit. Although it's been years since I've knitted, there are a few things I remember vividly about knitting that can be applied to our relationships. Using one long piece of yarn (the church or body of believers), I was able to create something beautiful, complex, and quite strong—all by intentionally intertwining that single strand back and forth.

All this to say, at a time when our country and world are being pulled apart over so many issues, we need to even more intentional about making sure we are striving to lovingly encourage and support fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

Would you describe yourself as a "knitter"? How are you or what steps will you take to make sure you are "knitting in love" to the body of Christ? Tami

Church Work

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Colossians 1:24-29 (NLT)

Paul writes of his responsibility to serve the body of Christ by teaching the "entire message" of Jesus (vs. 25). While most of us aren't in paid, full-time ministry as a preacher, teacher, or minister, as followers of Christ ("the church"), each of us still has a responsibility to proclaim the message of God's love through Christ to anyone and everyone. As such, verse 28 applies to us just as it did to Paul and the disciples.

"So we tell others about Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all the wisdom God has given us. We want to present them to God, perfect in their relationship to Christ" (NLT).

Do you consider yourself a "church worker"? When's the last time you talked with someone outside of your immediate family about Jesus and how much God loves them? Will you join me in being intentional about looking for people to talk to about Jesus this week and going forward? Tami

Jesus Christ!

Today's reading: Colossians 1:15-23 (NLT)

Right in the middle of Colossians 1, Paul provides incredible detail about Jesus, from before man was created until eternity. Because Jesus came to earth, took on human form, and lived among us, sometimes we can overlook the fact that while Jesus was a man, he also was, is, and continues to be fully and actively God. I particularly like the verse 15 of the New Living Translation version of this informative passage because of how simply it reminds us of who Christ is. It also reminds us of the gift of Jesus coming to us in observable form so that we can have an even better understanding of God's love and how to live for Him.

"Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation" (vs. 15).

What stood out to you most about Jesus from these verses, and why? What encouragement did you draw from this passage? Tami

A Worthy Walk

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Colossians 1:10

After telling the Christ-followers at Colossae that he is praying for their spiritual growth, Paul continues on by letting them know that spiritual growth is necessary to:

". . .walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God" (vs. 10).

As I read and then considered these opening verses of Colossians today, I had the thought to make verse 10 a daily early morning prayer. A typical start of my daily prayer is to ask God to help me live well for Him, but this is a bit more specific, and I really like that.

Starting tomorrow morning, I am going to incorporate this verse, specifically walking in a worthy manner, in my immediate waking prayer. I invite you to join me in this, and then let's see how God responds. Tami

Hello Colossae!

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Colossians 1:1-14

For the next week or so we're going to read through the book of Colossians. The writer of this book is Paul (with the help of Timothy), and his letter is directed to Christ-followers in Colossae. Paul and Timothy have never met these people, but they have heard about them through Epaphras, a fellow believer who ministered to the people in Colossae and helped plant a church there.

As this letter begins, Paul lets this group know that he and Timothy have been and are consistently praying for them and their spiritual growth.

"And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding." (vs. 9).

He then goes on to encouragingly urge this group of believers to continue walking in faith and growing in Christ.

Imagine yourself as one of the believers in Colossae who received this letter. Were you encouraged? Thankful? Excited? What impact did these beginning verses have on you, and why? What does this passage reveal about the importance of praying for the spiritual growth of fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and of coming alongside to encourage one another? Tami

Great Maker

Today's reading: Psalm 104:1-35; Genesis 1:1-31

I decided to stay with Psalm 104 one more day because of the rich information it gives us about our almighty Creator. The expressive descriptions brought to mind the creation account found in Genesis 1. These two passages certainly highlight God's greatness. There's no question that God is our maker and that He has absolute power, authority, and control over all.

"O LORD, how manifold are your works! In wisdom have you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures" (vs. 24).

What's one thing you learned about God from Psalm 104? Take some time this weekend to focus on your surroundings. How would you describe the beauty of what God has made? Tami

God of Creation

Today's reading: Psalm 104:1-35

I am truly an outdoor kind of girl. I absolutely love anything and everything to do with nature. As such, reading through detail after detail about God's creation and contemplating how God so perfectly orchestrated it all brought a smile to my face and refreshed my heart this morning. What an incredible reminder of God's greatness, goodness, and exceptional care for all that He has created! As I reached the final verses of this wonderfully descriptive song, like the psalmist I was eager to sing praises to God and proclaim His works to those around me.

How often do you take time to think about God as the Creator and caretaker of all things? Why is this important? What encouraged you from this psalm today, and why? Tami

Perfect

Today's reading: Psalm 19:7-11

Rather than starting a new book on a Friday, I thought we would take a day to look at a favorite passage of mine from the Psalms.

With all that's going on in our world right now, my heart has been feeling heavy, so I turned to Psalm 19:7-11 this morning. These verses are favorites of mine because of what they so plainly tell us about God and His Word. I particularly like verse 7, and I certainly experienced it as I worked my way through this passage.

"The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul."

What stood out to you most from these verses, and why? How would you describe what you experience when you take in and consider God's Word? Tami

Joshua Look Back

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Joshua 1–24

Thank you for reading through and considering the entire book of Joshua with me the past few weeks. I hope you found the time we spent in this packed-full, historical book beneficial. I know I did! What I learned from Joshua's personal example and from the strong message of trusting God in and through all circumstances provided needed encouragement to stay the course and stand strong right where God presently has me.

Take some time today to look back over the chapters of Joshua. What lessons or reminders did you find most beneficial, and why? Tami

Today's reading: Joshua 24:29-33

The final few verses of Joshua provide us with information about Joshua's death and bring us to the close of an important era for the Israelites.

Joshua stepped up to lead Israel upon Moses's death, and what an outstanding job he did! Guiding this group of strong-willed people was a challenging task and then some, and yet he faithfully pressed forward, urging and encouraging the Israelites to live rightly for God until the end of his life. I'm guessing Joshua didn't fully realize the impact his example and leadership had at the time, but these final few verses of Joshua 24—particularly verse 31—clearly show how one man influenced an entire nation for God.

"Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua and had known all the work that the LORD did for Israel" (vs. 31).

What does Joshua's impact on those around him suggest about you and the influence you have in your family, your church, your workplace, or your neighborhood? Each of us are influencers, whether we realize it or not. Let's make the most of this opportunity by choosing to model and promote Christ to a hurting world. Tami

Your Influence

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Joshua 24:14-28

Growing up, Joshua 24:15 was a verse that I saw literally every single day. My parents had a plaque with this verse on it secured over the doorbell to the main entrance to our house so that anyone who came to our door would know immediately that we were Christians committed to following and serving God. Although I didn't realize it at the time, my parents' choice to post that verse and model it in their lives impacted me greatly. In fact, for years now I have had my own wall sign of Joshua 24:15 that declares to those who enter my home:

"But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

Although my parents have both passed on and are with the Lord, their legacy lives on. I am grateful for their Godly example and how their lifestyle choices have influenced and continue to influence the way I live today.

Identify one example in the past few weeks of when you lived out Joshua 24:15. What does Joshua's impact on those around him suggest about the impact you have on your family or in your church, workplace, school, or neighborhood? How much thought have you given to the legacy you're leaving for your family and those around you? Why is this important? Tami

Today's reading: Joshua 24:1-28

As we come to the close of the book of Joshua, Joshua gathers together all the tribes of Israel. Speaking on behalf of God, he reminds the Israelites of exactly how God has chosen, looked over, guided, protected, and provided for them, beginning with the fathers of Abraham and continuing forward to the time in which the Israelites are now living. It isn't a long speech, but it provides a powerful reinforcing reminder of God's greatness and His tremendous love and care for the Israelites. Joshua then declares before the people his commitment to serving God and only God and challenges them to do the same. Everyone responds that they want to serve God, and so Joshua makes a covenant with them along with statutes and rules for them to live by going forward.

Do you regularly recall and give thanks for the things God's has done for you (watching over, guiding, protecting, providing, loving, and caring for you)? How important is it for you and especially for the next generation that you remember and acknowledge God's past faithfulness and workings in your life? What impact does taking time to remember who God is and what He has done have on your attitude and outlook? Tami

Steadfast

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 103:1-22

Throughout Psalm 103, David tells us about God having "steadfast love."

  • God "crowns you with steadfast love" (vs. 4).
  • He is "abounding in steadfast love" (vs. 8).
  • "For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love" (vs. 11).
  • "But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him" (vs. 17).

What does God having and showing "steadfast love" mean to you? What's one example of how you have experienced God's steadfast love? Tami

Forget Not

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 103:1-5

David issues the directive to bless (praise, commend, extol) the Lord in Psalm 103. In verse 2, he adds the instruction to "forget not all his benefits." David then goes on in verses 3-5 to list out a number of benefits we receive as a follower of God.

  • Forgiveness
  • Healing
  • Redemption
  • Love
  • Satisfaction
  • Renewal

Being intentional about recalling these benefits is an excellent way to keep a proper perspective of who God is and, in turn, keep our minds focused on Him.

I invite you to join me in taking a bit of time today to consider how you have experienced each of the benefits David lists off in verses 3-5. The more specific you are, the better. Let's write down what we each recall and then take a few minutes to talk with God and thank Him through prayer. Tami

Clinging to God

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Joshua 23:1-16; Psalm 63:8

With peace throughout the land and Joshua now well advanced in years, Joshua calls together all the elders, leaders, judges, and officers of Israel to instruct them about following God. He reminds them of how they have seen and experienced God's goodness, provision, and protection, then charges them to be very careful to follow God's law wholeheartedly. These instructions are not new to the Israelites. They have received similar reminders numerous times over the years. However, one phrase Joshua uses here (also seen in Joshua 22:5) that they don't appear to have heard previously is the command to "cling to the LORD your God" (vs. 8).

I like this phrase because of how the word "cling" adds depth to this command by making it more personal, intimate, and intense (see also Psalm 63:8). Because clinging is a common word and something I have experienced in numerous areas of life (as I'm sure you have as well), I have a good understanding of what clinging looks like and what it feels like physically and emotionally. As such, Joshua using this descriptive word "cling" in this context conveys in an especially understandable way how you and I should serve and follow after God.

Take some time today to think about the specific command to "cling to the Lord your God." Does this description portray your relationship with God? Why or why not? Will you join me in drawing on your understanding of the word "cling" to strengthen your relationship with God moving forward? Tami

Fighting God

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Joshua 23:1-13; Romans 8:31

Over and over again as Joshua addresses the elders, heads, judges and officers of Israel, he reminds them of God's protection and provision. It is specifically pointed out three times in just thirteen verses that the land the Israelites now possess is solely because God has gone before and fought for them.

  • ". . .for it is the LORD your God who has fought for you" (vs. 3).
  • "For the LORD has driven out before you great and strong nations" (vs. 9).
  • ". . .since it is the LORD your God who fights for you, just as he promised you" (vs. 10).

Those verses brought to mind a similar sounding verse, Romans 8:31, which states: "If God is for us, who can be against us?" What an encouraging reminder to receive this morning that God is a fighting God for me and for you!

Over the years, how have you personally experienced God's protection and provision? What's one example of God "fighting for you"? How does knowing that God is for you make you feel? Tami

Accountability

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Joshua 22:10-34

One of the benefits of being part of a church body is having accountability between members and or groups to help keep us on the right path—through encouragement, but also through confrontation and correction when necessary. We get a glimpse of that kind of accountability with the interaction between the western Israelite tribes and tribes of the Reubenites, Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh, who returned to their land on other side of the Jordan River.

What I liked about this passage was how the western tribes handled a situation where they believed part of their family had gotten off course and acted wrongly. They are upset at the actions of their relatives and even ready to make war if necessary. But before they do, they speak with the eastern tribe leaders in order to ascertain the exact situation, asking, "What is this breach of faith that you have committed against the God of Israel?" (vs. 16). The Reubenites, Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh are able to explain their actions, and the situation resolves peacefully, no corrective action needed.

Do you have someone or a group of people who help you stay grounded and on the right track? Why is this important? What does this passage reveal about the importance of confronting those we love when necessary? Tami

Today's reading: Joshua 22:10-34

After receiving Joshua's message, the eastern tribes set off for their homeland. Upon reaching the region of the Jordan, they build "an altar of imposing size" (vs. 10). When word of the altar reaches the western tribes, they immediately jump to the conclusion that the altar was erected because of an improper or sinful motivation. Angered by what they believe the eastern tribes have done, they rally together in preparation for war.

Thankfully, however, before engaging in warfare, a group of delegated leaders from the western tribes confront and question their relatives in the eastern tribes about their actions. And through this crucial communication, it is discovered that the intent of their relatives was not to turn from God but instead to build altar of witness to God to function as a reminder for generations to come.

The absolute importance of communication stood out clearly to me as I took in today's passage. Verbal communicating is so crucial for each of us, yet we often try to avoid it or give it little to no thought. The eastern tribes were well intentioned in their construction of a memorial altar. But apparently they didn't give any thought to the need for verbal communication to their relatives about their actions. This oversight of a crucial communication almost caused a war between family tribes.

The importance of communication wasn't overlooked by the western tribes. They got it right. They understood that when conflict arises, communication between the opposing parties is vital in resolving the conflict.

Do you tend to think of verbal communication as crucial or more as a task you'd rather avoid? What's one thing you noticed about communicating from today's passage? Are there any people with whom or any areas in which you need to increase your verbal communication? Tami

Today's reading: Joshua 22:1-9

As the eastern tribes (Reuben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh) prepare to return to their homeland east of the Jordan River, Joshua addresses the group to make sure they once again hear the message that they the need to keep their eyes on God and live according to His law. It was an important instruction then, and it remains an important instruction for us now.

"Only be very careful to observe the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways and to keep his commandments and to cling to him and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul" (vs. 5).

Would you say you are "careful" to follow the commands in God's Word? What does serving God with all your heart and soul require of you? What does this look like in your day-to-day life? Tami

Today's reading: Psalm 102:1-28

Adversity, suffering, trouble, and depression are a few of the words that came to mind as I read Psalm 102. The psalmist is in distress, and in this emotionally low state he turns to God and cries out to Him. And yet even in this pain-filled condition, the psalmist keeps his eyes on God, drawing comfort by remembering God's sovereignty, character, and especially His promises to His children and eternity.

How do you talk with God when you're feeling distressed or experiencing hardship? When you tell God exactly what you're feeling and what's on your heart, how does it affect your attitude and thinking? What impact does it have on your relationship with God? Tami

Today's reading: Psalm 101:1-8

Psalm 101 gives us a look at a conversation between David and God where David tells God that he is committed to living for Him. But David doesn't simply say, "I'm going to follow you," and leave it at that. Instead, he lays out for God some specific ways in which he will live rightly and with integrity. We see from David a commitment to:

  • Sing and make music that praises and honors God.
  • Intentionally contemplate and reflect on living rightly.
  • Guard what he looks at.
  • Focus his thoughts on God and honor His ways.
  • Associate with and learn from upright and good people.

How often do your prayers include telling God specific ways in which you are committed to following Him? Take a few minutes to think about the things you do to ensure you are living rightly, and then talk with God about them today. Tami

All True

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Joshua 21:1-45

Although the Levites weren't allotted their own portion of land, they were given cities and pasturelands among the land given to the different tribes of Israel. As we read through Joshua 21, we're given the details about these cities, forty-eight in all with their pasturelands.

Joshua 21 concludes the distribution of all of the land to the Israelites, and when you think about it, what we read here is incredible. I absolutely love the final three verses where we are shown that God keeps His word—without a doubt!

"Not one word of all the good promises that the LORD had made to the house of Israel had failed; all came to pass" (vs. 45).

What encouragement did you draw from Joshua 21, and why? How has reading the book of Joshua, and especially verses 43-45 of chapter 21 today, impacted your thinking about trusting God and His character? Tami

God of Refuge

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: Joshua 20:1-9

After the allotment of the land is complete, God instructs Joshua to put in place cities of refuge, six in all. These were designated cities where those who unintentionally, unknowingly, or accidentally took the life of another human being could go to be safe from relatives seeking revenge. In order to be admitted into a city of refuge, the person was required to present their case to the elders at the city gate. Then at a later date, they were tried by the city's local assembly for judgment. As long as the person stayed within the confines of the city, they would be shielded from any avenging parties.

When someone wrongs you or a family member, what's your first gut response? What does the creation of cities of refuge reveal about the difference between man's heart and God's? What does this chapter in Joshua convey about God's care and love for all people? Tami

Today's reading: Joshua 18:11–19:51

As I began slogging through (yes, you read that right—just keeping it real!) the remaining verses that set out what land was assigned and given to each of the remaining seven tribes, I had to stop. Why? Because I was slogging, and it made me realize that I didn't have the best mindset about what I was reading.

If you recall, I wrote in an earlier blog about how we should ask God to show us something new as we read these drier portions of scriptures. So that's exactly what I did. I stopped and asked God to teach me something from these chapters regarding why He divided the land and provided us with so much detail. Then I started again from the top. And what a difference! Here are some of the thoughts that came to my mind as God revealed things to me.

As I began reading, immediately God turned my attention to how He could have just given the totality of the land to the nation of Israel as a whole and let them figure out how best to live in it. But God doesn't do this because He knows that man's sinful nature will cause problems. I contemplated for a few minutes the conflict and troubles that a "free-for-all" environment would have created. Without a doubt, it would have been downright ugly. Thankfully for the Israelites, God lovingly and caringly puts in place detailed structure and order for them. In doing so, He not only provides guidance but also creates a healthy environment of cooperation and harmony between tribes.

"Thank you, God, for prompting me to slow down and consider what I could learn from these chapters today. Thank you for giving me a better understanding of your great love and care for your children."

What did God reveal to you from these final passages dealing with the allotment of land to the Israelites? If you're having difficulty answering that question, I encourage you to do as I did today. Ask God to open your eyes to something new, and then go back and read these verses again. Tami

Today's reading: Joshua 18:1-10

Who doesn't like to be comfortable? I know I sure do. But when it comes to our spiritual lives, wanting to be and stay comfortable can be harmful. Oftentimes it keeps us from growing, moving forward, and ultimately fulfilling plans God has for us.

Some of the tribes of Israel had gotten to this point. After living a nomadic lifestyle for years with God providing for them, they are comfortable to the point of complacency. Thus Joshua's prompting words to get up and take over the land God had given them.

"So Joshua said to the people of Israel, 'How long will you put off going in to take possession of the land, which the LORD, the God of your fathers, has given you?" (vs. 3)

Why is staying comfortable so tempting both spiritually and in our physical circumstances? How might you need to step out of your comfort zone right now? How might you need to be a "Joshua" to someone close to you by urging them to move forward? Tami

Doing Our Part

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Joshua 17:7-18; Ephesians 2:10 (MSG)

God wants and expects us to do our part as we live out our lives following Him. Ephesians 2:10 conveys this well: "He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing" (MSG). And we see God's desire for us to work with Him throughout the book of Joshua. God tells the Israelites that He has given them the Promised Land, but He doesn't usher them into a land that is conquered and prepared for their every need. Instead, God requires them to arise and go take the land.

Joseph's descendants were unhappy about only receiving one allotment of land as their inheritance, so they confront Joshua and complain to him about this perceived unfairness (vs. 14). Joshua acknowledges their size and strength before then directing them to clear out the forest and hill country to give them adequate space (instructing them to "do their part").

"And Joshua said to them, 'If you are a numerous people, go up by yourselves to the forest, and there clear ground for yourselves in the land of the Perizzites and the Rephaim, since the hill country of Ephraim is too narrow for you'" (vs. 15).

The people of Joseph balk at this directive, but Joshua stands his ground. He restates the command to clear the land and then reassures them about their great numbers and might and how they will possess the land to its farthest borders.

Do you think of yourself as a worker for and with God? Why is this important? How do we benefit when we "do our part" with God? What does God sharing the workload with us convey about how God feels about us as His children? Tami
