Hezekiah: A devoted man of God, Part 2
Have you ever been attacked head-on by the devil? Satan works in various ways of devious cunning and craftiness. He whispers words of enticement from behind; he attacks with false promises in front; he showers curses and ridicule from above; he casts doubt and fear from below. He may throw a bomb and blow up everything, or, he may surgically thrust a small dagger, piercing a vital organ. He’s a magician of deceit with a large bag of tricks! And sure enough, these attacks seem to occur when you are making progress in your life with Christ and ministry momentum is increasing.

Bloodshed Prevented! God Sent a Woman, Part 2
Have you ever found yourself in the middle of someone else’s fight? Here’s the scene: a rich sheepherder named Nabal speaks disrespectfully about David to his messengers. Learning of this, David and his men set out to wipe out Nabal, his family, and all his servants. Filled with anger and vengeance, David is heading straight into some good old-fashioned sinful disobedience. David is wrong for sure. But Nabal—a selfish, foolish, and ignorant man—has brought this upon himself. Folks, this is going to end badly.

God Sent a Woman! Abigail to the Rescue
When two hot-headed men are on a collision course of destruction, God sends a woman! Have you ever given to someone who took without gratitude? You gave time, effort, money or resources willing and they didn’t even give a simple ‘thank you’ in return? Even worse, have you ever been kind to someone who returned your kindness with disdain?

Have you ever chased a storm? I don’t understand storm chasers. Storms will come in our lives without chasing after them. ‘Why do you call me Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and acts on them, I will show you whom he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.

One-on-One with Jesus, Part 6: Advice from Jesus!
Have you ever felt a check in your spirit about the character of a certain spiritual leader? Following the leadership of a trusted pastor, minister, priest or other spiritual leader, can be the most inspiring and encouraging relationship one can have in life? Conversely, following a spiritual leader who turns out to be untrustworthy and self-serving, can be a painful and distressing experience.

Living the Good Life!
God is good. Together we affirm this statement. We agree with it. We speak it to others. We stand upon it as an affirmation of our faith. Acts of lovingkindness are the expressions of His goodness directed toward us always and continually. He knows what we need far better than we do.  God is good. Until He isn’t.   LIVING SCRIPTURE DAILY COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/livingscripturedaily/ LIVING SCRIPTURE DAILY INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/larryshaffer.tx/ LIVING SCRIPTURE DAILY BLOG: https://larryshaffer.com/blog/

Hezekiah Against the World

The previous afternoon and into the evening, all the people of the surrounding areas were pushing and shoving to see Him; talk to Him; be healed by Him.

Healing, Part 3
While Jesus is in Capernaum, He publicly casts out a demon in the synagogue, privately heals Peter’s mother-in-law, and publicly cast out demons and healed everyone in the village who was sick. Matthew tells us that these events in Capernaum were done to fulfill what Isaiah the prophet wrote.

We're continuing the study of the book of Luke, and Jesus’ acts of healing. The day that started with the public casting out of a demon and the private healing of Peter’s mother-in-law set the stage for a healing service. That afternoon, all the people of the village gathered outside of Peter’s home after the word spread about the healing of Peter’s mother-in-law. They brought any and all of their loved ones who were sick or oppressed to Jesus.   LIVING SCRIPTURE DAILY COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/livingscripturedaily/ LIVING SCRIPTURE DAILY INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/larryshaffer.tx/ LIVING SCRIPTURE DAILY BLOG: https://larryshaffer.com/blog/

Hannah: Oppressed in Spirit, Part 1
Today's devotional is an excerpt from What I've Learned From Amazing Women of the Bible. Before God’s Word takes us through the lives of Saul and David, the opening chapter of 1 Samuel introduces us to a most amazing woman. Her name is Hannah, and she is a faithful servant of God who keeps her promises. I really love the story of Hannah. When it comes to character, integrity, grit, and passion, Hannah blows away the other important people we meet in 1 Samuel.

The Stalker, Part 3 - Luke Chapter 4
In Part 3, we see how Jesus is the perfect example for us. From his baptism, we see what happens to us when we are saved. We are washed clean of our sins; the Holy Spirit comes down and dwells within us and the Father is pleased. These events happened to me at the point of my salvation as a young boy and they happened to you as well if you have received Jesus by faith. And when he is tempted, we see that he is not alone, and we aren't either. The Father is with Him, the Spirit leads Him when the devil tempts Him.
