Do I Come to Church out of Duty or out of Delight?

Posted on March 2, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

I was speaking to my neighbor a few years ago (on a Saturday afternoon about 4:20). As she was pulling out of the driveway, I stopped her and asked her how she was doing. She said she was fine but didn’t have time to talk with me then because she was on her way to […]

God Will Take Care of You

Posted on March 2, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

A SONG WE USED TO SING I am very fond of some of the songs we used to sing. Many of them are no longer in even the newer hymnals. However, since I have been thinking for myself and not simply accepting a song or doctrine just because it is popular, I ask myself why […]

In Weakness, Fear, and Trembling

Posted on March 1, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling, and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in […]

What the Cross Teaches (Part 2)

Posted on March 1, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18 Last week I shared with you some insights from Paul David Tripp’s new 40-day devotional for Lent. I have told you before that I have a love-hate relationship with Paul […]

I Know Where She Is

Posted on February 26, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“I KNOW WHERE SHE IS, BUT SHE’S NOT HERE”   “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” (II Corinthians 12:8)   Many of you who read these devotionals are my age, or close to it. For the rest of you—learn! You’ll […]

Joy?

Posted on February 26, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. James 1:2-3 Count is all joy?  Who considers suffering joy?  I have heard this question posed to me over the years. How do I count this trial all joy?  It is difficult to see trials as joyful. […]

All in…

Posted on February 25, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

The first attack came when he was a child, the abuse, the lies, the degradation stung him at every turn like a crazed hornet’s nest; the pain blocks most of the details, but the horror of the acts remains. Over time, other deceptions come as trusted friends choose desire over honor and loyalty. Not every […]

A Simple Truth Take 2

Posted on February 25, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love. Galatians 5:6 In yesterday’s Victory Call, in view of Galatians 5:6, we considered that nothing other than Christ counts for our salvation. No matter what words we put in place of circumcision and uncircumcision, the works they represent count for nothing. […]

Proper Perspective

Posted on February 24, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2   Chances are you read devotionals like this at the same time each day. Some, first thing, […]

A Simple Truth

Posted on February 24, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love. Galatians 5:6 One evening, in small group, one of the men mentioned his favorite verse in the entire Bible was Galatians 5:6.  I was curious about that. I’ve heard a lot of favorite verses over the years, but never Galatians 5:6. […]

The Dictatorship Of The Routine

Posted on February 23, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Philippians 1:6 (NLT)   I guess some things in life just go flatline. Oh, it’s not that there is an actual death but that things just […]

Distractible Times

Posted on February 23, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

I would not consider myself to be a person that is easily distracted; however, my most distractible times are during Bible reading, prayer and worship; personal or corporate. Why is that? It seems to be a continual battle to stay focused and honestly I fail more than I succeed. I’m afraid I have grossly missed […]

Lessons from Exodus I

Posted on February 22, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Recently, I was asked to speak for a Friday night Recovery group on the topic, “Why do men and women go back to their addictions?” As I was considering a Biblical perspective, it occurred to me that the journey of the Israelites out of Egypt provided some insight to answer that question. This week we […]

What the Cross Teaches (Part 1)

Posted on February 22, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. Galatians 6:14 I did not grow up in a liturgical church setting so the concept of Lent never entered my grid, and in every church I served in, […]
