Some people today scoff at even the thought of God. They say, “If He’s so powerful, why doesn’t He do something about this mess?” Actually, this is nothing new. When Jesus was on this Earth as a man, humans tried to dictate to Him how He should use His power, too. Even His own disciples… Read More Day 204- Thankful for God’s power
After yesterday’s bout with exhaustion, I was happy to wake up feeling quite a bit better. I actually took the dog out and pulled a few weeds in the asparagus part of the garden!

I love to read passages of the Bible where God appears to man. If you haven’t read through the Bible, you may be surprised how many times this happened. Joshua 5 and 6 contains one of these passages. In Joshua 5:13-15 we see that a man is standing before Joshua with his sword drawn. At… Read More Appearances of God to Man – Breakthroughs
