A Friend Closer Than A Brother

Posted on August 11, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinions. It is easy in solitude to live after our own.

Come to the Word with Humility

Posted on August 11, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

The premise of one of my recent classes was that if we want to be set free by the truth we must submit to the Word of truth. John 8:32 says, Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. John 17:17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. 2 Timothy […]

I Don’t Know How I Got Here

Posted on August 9, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

Lost in the cave… I don’t know how I got here. Life was good… I had a good position, and people loved me; my marriage seemed to be okay, and everything was going along smoothly. Then the betrayal and my employment, money, family, mentor, and best friend were all gone. I don’t know why God […]

Lowliness of Mind

Posted on August 9, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

“Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.” Philippians 2:3 Boy, this is a tough one isn’t it? Esteem others better than ourselves. At first flush we may think, I have no problem with that. I know others are better than me. […]

Years ago as I was reading Matthew’s gospel, I noticed Jesus’ words of encouragement and admonishment about the faith of His hearers. I found this interesting and thought I would share with you.   Jesus spoke of no faith. But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have […]

God Imitators

Posted on August 5, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.” Eph 5:1 One way children learn is through imitation. Who has not smiled at a baby and had that baby smile back. We can make total fools of ourselves trying to get babies to imitate us 500 times. Children imitate their parents. You can picture a little […]

Strike ‘til You can Strike No More

Posted on August 5, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’” (John 7:38) How big are your prayers?

Long View Vision

“Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven.” Matthew 5:11 Rejoice and be glad? Surely not what His disciples expected to hear. It sounds so contrary to human nature. Being reviled […]

He Fights for You…

Posted on August 4, 2022 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

‘I will never leave you or forsake you’ God is at work at all times, in all places, and in every circumstance. But the key to benefiting from His work is to ‘wait on Him.’ This involves trust in whom He is, faith in what He is able to do, and patience in that He knows […]

Get Ready

Posted on August 3, 2022 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Look around. Do you see the growing intolerance of Christians? Do you agree the cost of being a Christ-follower is rising? Do you sense the growing ambivalence/hatred to the Truth?
