IHW in 2014

December 23, 2013

Today’s IHW post will probably be the final one for the year.  I hope and pray that it has been of benefit to you this year as we focused on Psalms.  For the new year I have a new plan.  It is to go through the Bible each week by focusing each weekday on something […]

Psalm 9:9 – “a stronghold”

December 20, 2013

9 The LORD also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble; One important thing to know in any battle is when to attack and when to retreat.  This is especially true when it comes to our spiritual battle.  There are times for attacking: “for the weapons of our warfare […]

1 I will give You thanks with all my heart; I will sing praises to You before the gods. Do you give God thanks?  Sure you do, but do you do it with all your heart, with undivided affection and attention?  It’s relatively easy to express a quick word of thanks as you rush out […]

Proverbs 27:6 – “the wounds of a friend”

December 14, 2013

27:6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but deceitful are the kisses of an enemy. When people have heart surgery they pay a doctor to wound them – cut them open, break their ribs, make them bleed, etc.  They are scarred for life by the process.  Yet that is a scar they gladly wear, […]

Psalm 128:2 – “the fruit of your hands”

December 12, 2013

2 When you shall eat of the fruit of your hands, you will be happy and it will be well with you. All blessings come from God’s hands, but He still expects us to work with our own hands to acquire them.  Going back to Genesis 5:29 the Bible talks about “our work and toil […]

      10 An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels.

Have a great day in His […]

Psalm 98:9 – “coming to judge”

December 6, 2013

9 He is coming to judge the earth; He will judge the world with righteousness and the peoples with equity. It’s so easy to get caught up in the daily cares and concerns of this life and forget that it will not last.  A day is coming when the Lord will come to judge.  He “impartially […]
