God is here

By Darrell Powell — Where is God? I get asked this question from time to time by my children. But let’s not kid ourselves and say we don’t all wonder the same thing from time to time.

It is not only the little children who long to SEE something, or somehow FEEL God. At the end of this topic, with the information we have, there will still be some loose ends and some “I don’t knows.” But rest…

More loyal

The Levites obeyed your word
and guarded your covenant.
They were more loyal to you
than to their own parents.
They ignored their relatives
and did not acknowledge their own children.
Dt 33.9 NLT

After the Israelites worshiped the golden calf in the desert, Moses ordered the faithful to kill the sinners among the people, Exodus 32. The Levites fulfilled the order and were blessed by God for it.…

Catching Sight of Ourselves

Catching Sight of Ourselves

Artesian wells are amazing. It isn’t that the water is markedly different, but in how the water comes above the ground.

The water is under significant pressure because it is trapped in layers of poorly permeable rock. Disturb the layers and the water will shoot or flow from the ground with some force.

In John chapter four, Jesus told the Samaritan woman she could have “living water,” (John 4:10).…

Watch your head

“This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind” (Ephesians 4:17 NKJV).

The average Nepali man living in villages and in the mountains does not stretch much over five feet in height. Since materials for buildings are expensive and must sometimes be transported considerable distances, houses are built…

Oops! More traffic than the plan can handle

Our sites have exceeded bandwidth already on our new host server, so they’re down for the moment. Must have been the video link on BNC.

This is the second time it’s happened in a week or so, so we’ll have to up the limits with a new plan, apparently. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The image reminds me of someone who saw a lady in line at the airport as she got ready to go through security. She saw…

The math is the same

The math is the same

What’s the difference between a person who says they believe in God but they don’t live like it and a person who says they don’t believe in God and they live like it?

The answer is: nothing. The math is the same no matter how you look at it. It’s six in one hand, and half a dozen in the other.

This is why the scriptures place such an emphasis on a living faith. So go out and live today in such a…

Have we grown up yet?

Have we grown up yet?

Babies. Everyone loves them. They can melt the heart of the hardest man. When parents get together we recall the circumstances of our children’s births, reliving the anxious moments as well as the humorous ones.

When our children were small we wanted the best for them and we wanted them to achieve their dreams when they grew up. We sometimes dreamed for them and often our dreams weren’t the…

A fire that burns completely

A fire that burns completely

Such sin is like a fire that burns until it destroys everything.
It would completely ruin my life’s work.
Job 31.12 ERV

Many a ruler has been toppled after getting caught in some crime or moral offense. Not a few of God’s people have also lost influence and destroyed their ministry as well. Job defends himself with his knowledge of what sin would do to his life and service to God. He takes the…
