Thoughts for the Day

Deuteronomy 20-23, Romans 6:15-e

1

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you. Deuteronomy 20:1 Where God promises victory—you can know that it is yours. Therefore...

Deuteronomy 1-4:40, Romans 4:16-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the Lord our God is near us whenever we pray to him? And what other nation is so great as to have such righteous decrees and laws as this body of laws I am setting before you today? Deuteronomy 4:7-8 In reviewing their...

Numbers 32-34, Romans 3:9-20

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

No one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin. Romans 3:20 Was it an exercise in futility? In the readings from Numbers we see all the things the people had to do in obedience to God—but in Romans 3...

Numbers 22-24, Romans 1:18-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

It will now be said of Jacob and of Israel, ‘See what God has done!’ Numbers 23:23 It is a crazy moment in history with a donkey talking, but the beautiful part of this is that no matter what anyone wants to say or do—when God wants to bless His people, they will be blessed...

Numbers 16-18, John 21:15-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

The Lord said to Aaron, “You will have no inheritance in their land, nor will you have any share among them; I am your share and your inheritance among the Israelites." Numbers 18:20 Why do we care so much about others—how much they get (Numbers 16,17) or what will happen to them...

Numbers 13-15, John 20:26-21:14

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

If the Lord is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us. Numbers 14:8 Life is pretty simple—if we seek God first, everything else will work out. That’s what God does. But that is not our nature. God’s people...

Genesis 49-50, Exodus 1, John 9:1-23

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

As he (Jesus) went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be...

Genesis 46-48, John 8:48-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Israel said, “Bring them to me so I may bless them.” Genesis 48:9 I don’t understand all the significance of giving blessing in the Old Testament. In this reading Joseph's dad blesses Pharaoh and then Joseph’s two sons. And why he purposely gives the greater blessing to...

Genesis 43-45, John 8:31-47

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance. Genesis 45:7 Joseph realized that God’s hand was behind all of it—the dreams, being sold into slavery, being unjustly tossed into prison---all so he could provide food for...

Job 41-42, John 5:33e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

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...
