“We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the Evil One.”  1 John 5:19 (NLT)   Your alarm clock goes off and you can already smell the morning coffee brewing. Before your feet hit the ground you’ve already thanked God for waking you and […]

Stewarding the Stirrings

Posted on May 12, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

He fashions their hearts individually…   Psalm 33:15 Reading the Bible, listening to a sermon or podcast, talking to a friend… God uses so many different ways to prick our spirits.  It may be a word, a phrase or thought that suddenly catches our attention and stirs our spirit. In that moment, God’s Spirit is whispering to our soul. […]

The Discernment of Restraint

Posted on May 11, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

When words are many, transgression (sin) is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent (wise).  Proverbs 10:19 ESV (NKJV)  “Restrain: to prevent from doing, exhibiting, or expressing something; to limit, restrict, or keep under control; to moderate or limit the force, effect, development, or full exercise of; to deprive liberty”[i] On the one […]

Put It Down. That’s Not Your Sin Anymore.

Posted on May 11, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

The cross of Christ is God’s last and endless word. There the prince of this world is judged, there sin is killed, and pride is done to death, there lust is frozen, and self-interest slaughtered, not one can get through. ~Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the […]

I Love It When God Shows Up

Posted on May 10, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

Then Moses said, “Now show me your glory.” Exodus 33:18 I love when God shows up and shows His glory. It happens so many times at America’s Keswick. Pastor Bill Raws, the grandson of our founder, wrote a book about the first hundred years of the ministry of America’s Keswick. There are hundreds of stories […]

Change My Circumstances

Posted on May 10, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook.  I enjoy seeing pictures of my friend’s kids and grandkids. I travel vicariously through others’ vacation pictures. I hate much of the political rhetoric that I see.  I hate repetitive memes that get posted by one friend and then shared by 62 other friends (I exaggerate, but only […]

God’s Chosen Bookends

Posted on May 7, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

The very first disciples Jesus called were Peter and his brother Andrew. While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left […]

Are You a People-Pleaser?

Posted on May 6, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe. Proverbs 29:25 In Galatians, Paul writes to the churches in Galatia because they have left the gospel for a hybrid religion that required both Christ and ceremonial law to be kept.  He writes very directly and firmly because of the seriousness of the issue. For am I […]

Promise Land Living

In Exodus 3:8, God said to Moses, “I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey.” The Egyptians had enslaved and mistreated the Israelites long enough, and God had […]

Sticks, Stones and A Big Ol’ Pile Of Them Bones

Posted on May 5, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

Early and Often

Posted on May 5, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Search me, O God, and know my heart!  Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting! Psalm 139:23-24 During a Colony Graduation at America’s Keswick, Tim Harvey, one of our full time maintenance staff, was asked to encourage and challenge one […]

An extraordinary gift…

Posted on May 4, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

With the many things on my heart these days, I wish I could talk to my Dad. He was always a good listener, not saying very much while you talked through whatever you were dealing with… his responses were invariably to the point and laced with kindness, being that he never wanted to hurt anyone. […]

Hurt Thumb

Posted on May 4, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

“And if any member suffers, all the members suffer with it,” 1 Corinthians 12:26a.  I never realized how true this was until I hurt my thumb.  Do you know how hard it is to put on clothes, socks, and shoes without using your thumb?  The rest of the hand had to take over the function […]
