• Amen!

  • 39 Malachi: Think upon His Name
    What an amazing study of the Old Testament. Ray Stedman really brings it alive for us. All these years and people have not changed that much. It seems the few are faithful and many have lost touch with God and have no clue that He is waiting for them to return. God help us to stay focused on you Love and guide…[Read more]

  • 37 Haggai: Some Words to Discouraged Carpenters
    Do Gods work now and do not expect instant results. Not really our nature is it? We must look to God first and everything we need He will take care of.

  • 36 Zephaniah: The Day of the Lord’s Wrath
    Oh, Doom and Gloom. And Love. This book tells us of a loving God and a God of vengeance. If all His children would just listen and turn to him for everything, He would just be a God of mercy. We can rejoice when God brings us through the trials of life, rejoice and sing.

  • 35 Habukkuk: History is in God’s Hands
    Propaganda!! History as taught in school is nothing like the history taught here. I often have felt like God was not listening or answering my prayers. Turned out I did not have patience to wait for God to work things out better than I could ever imagine. We need to let God be God and do His miraculous…[Read more]

  • 34 Nahum: The Terrible Wrath of God
    Interesting book about the anger and wrath of God and how people only want to think of God as a loving God, which he is IF we turn to Him. Once again we are being taught to look to God for Everything. His anger comes from His love for us not being acknowledged and returned. “We need not face the wrath of G…[Read more]

  • 33 Micah: Who is Like God?
    Who shall walk humbly with God? The only one who is like God is the man who walks with the Lord Jesus Christ who is God himself the Godlike one.

  • 32 Jonah: The Reluctant Ambassador
    The story of Jonah and the whale is really about God loving everyone and giving us all a chance to repent. Jonah tried to get out of the job God gave him but in the end he reluctantly did what God asked. I can relate well to that as every time God gives me a new mission I say no and end up doing it and then…[Read more]

  • 31 Obadiah: Death to Edom!
    Interesting how every sin is a form of pride and all we have to do is a simple thing. Trust God in Everything! Every little thing should be given to God.

  • 30 Amos: God Doesn’t Play Favorites
    The message of this book is to show us the impartiality of God. God plays no favorites. I like that Amos was not a “trained” prophet. I thought God just picked an unwilling child and used them for His prophecies. The lesson of this book is that God is relentless when he begins to deal with man. He will not…[Read more]

  • 29 Joel: The Revelation of God’s Hand
    The prophecy of Joel reveals the hand of God, the hand that controls destiny, the hand that moves history. Another prophetic view of the coming of the Day of the Lord.

  • 28 Hosea: The Prophet and the Prostitute
    “Whoever is wise, let him understand these things;
    whoever is discerning, let him know them;
    for the ways of the LORD are right,
    and the upright walk in them,
    but transgressors stumble in them. (Hosea 14:9 RSV)”
    Our Story again, the loving God, the faithless human heart, and the deceptive attractiveness of…[Read more]

  • 27 Daniel: On the Way to the Future
    Wow! What an amazing book. Before his prophecy’s we learn of Daniel’s steadfast faith in God. Again we can apply these lessons to our lives today. “Every believer is put into a position in which if they walk faithfully, if they obey what God says despite the pressures that are put upon them, they are given…[Read more]

  • 26 Ezekiel: Wheel, Bones, and Restoration
    The book of Ezekiel traces the causes of the captivity of the nation Israel, and why it was in so much trouble. I like how Stedman once again points out how these stories apply to our lives—— what happens to the nation is exactly what happens to us. By looking carefully, we can see our problems and…[Read more]

  • 25 Lamentations: The Therapy of Trouble
    Lamentations teaches us how the Lord keeps his Word and teaches us through heartache, sorrow, feelings of loneliness. The therapy of trouble teaches us through suffering comes strength of character. God is faithful by the thoroughness of judgment.

  • I can imagine it after years of addiction. Thanks God for reshaping me for a new life.

  • 24, Jeremiah: A Profile of Courage
    Jeremiah is outstanding among the prophets as a man of heroic, dauntless courage. For many years he endured persecution in his life without quitting. I think the lesson for us in Jeremiah is no matter how discouraged, depressed, lonely we get, God is waiting to take us back so we can continue on His mission for…[Read more]
