Thoughts for the Day

genesis 31-33, John 7:25-36

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” Genesis 32:27 It was a bizarre scene. Jacob wrestled with God and there was no way he could trick God and win. He had tricked his brother, his father and his uncle—but in wrestling with God, all he could do was hang...

When the Lord saw that Leah was not loved, he enabled her to conceive, but Rachel remained childless. Genesis 29:31 There is so much I do not understand about God—but I am ok with that. People make things so complicated. In the Genesis reading Jacob and Laban look for all kinds of ways to...

“God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” Genesis 22:8 Abraham’s son, Isaac, is carrying on his back the wood for a sacrifice, but he sees no lamb to sacrifice. Little does he know God has told his father to sacrifice him (Isaac). I think Abraham...

Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?” Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.” John 6:28-29 I read Genesis and can get confused. What was Lot doing in a city like Sodom and why did God save him but...

She (Hagar) gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me.” Genesis 16:13 Ever feel utterly alone—that no one knows what you are going through or how you feel--the world goes on all around you and no one notices your pain? Hagar felt that. She was a...

Job 41-42, John 5:33e

My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you. Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes. Job 42:5-6 In the final chapter of this book of Job, we find a beautiful conclusion. Job gains a greater sense of who God is and that he has no right to challenge Him. After all...

Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said: “Who is this that obscures my plans with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me." Job 38:1-3 Finally! I was getting bored reading the last 30+ chapters of Job and his friends...

Job 33-36, John 5:1-17

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Those who suffer he delivers in their suffering; he speaks to them in their affliction. Job 36:15 Elihu, a friend of Job, is the first person speaking to him who makes any sense. Others said God was unfair or that Job was being punished for some sin in his past. Elihu said that God delivers...

Job 30-32, John 4:46e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I cry out to you, God, but you do not answer; I stand up, but you merely look at me. Job 30:20 What makes us feel as if God is not listening? Isn’t it that we ask God to do something, but He does not respond as we want? Isn’t God the one in charge—to do as He pleases?...
