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, […]

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 […]

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, […]

Diaspora

Posted on February 19, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

The only reason I know this Greek word is because I heard it preached many times. A diaspora is a scattered population and was used to refer to the involuntary mass dispersion of the Jews after the resurrection. (James 1:1) In the same sense, we, the church, have been involuntarily scattered, unable to attend our […]

Just Say the Words

Posted on February 18, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

I know the sorrow, and I know the hurt…   Would all go away if You’d just say the word…   But even if You don’t,       My hope is You alone!   Have you have found yourself pleading with Him to ‘just say the Word’? I have… in tears and at times without the […]

Who is watching out for me..?

Posted on February 17, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

With one event, their entire life shifted from apparent joy to sorrow and fear. Choices were being made that were out of their control; thrown for one horror to the next with total carelessness and disregard for anything they held dear. Alone and scarred, hope seemed to vanish, and they wondered, “Who is left to […]

When Humility Is Lost To Unforgiveness (PART 3)

Posted on February 16, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“Shouldn’t you have mercy on your fellow servant, just as I had mercy on you?’ Then the angry king sent the man to prison to be tortured until he had paid his entire debt.” Matthew 18:33-34 (NLT)   “Shouldn’t you have had compassion on your brother, in the same way I had pity on you?” […]

The Unstoppable Love of God

Posted on February 15, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 One of the world’s leading theologians was asked if he could summarize what he believed in one sentence. His response was, “Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells […]

NUMBERS NUMBNESS

Posted on February 12, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

Reading the newspaper today, I see that there are now more than 3 million cases of the coronavirus in the U.S. If I were to be totally truthful, that is just a number to me. I’ll tell you when it is more than a number—when it takes one of my close friends or relatives. Then […]

God commends faithfulness…

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

It is said of Enoch that “before he was taken up, he was known as a person who pleased God.” How did he do this? It was by faithfully living according to the Word of God. We like to do things our own way, react to others in a way that benefits us, and define […]

Answers are given… to faith.

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

One of the biggest debates I have with students has to do with ‘how they feel about the truth.’ They want to use their feelings as the standard determining what is good or true. So if something makes them feel uncomfortable, it is evil; and if something brings them pleasure it is good. The problem […]

When Humility Is Lost To Unforgiveness PART 2

Posted on February 9, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“The servant therefore fell down before him, saying, ‘Master, have patience with me, and I will pay you all.” Matthew 18:26 (NKJV)   So, the last time I was with you I ended with two thoughts, “I wonder how many Christians would want God to forgive them in the same way they have forgiven those […]

JUST ABIDE

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

Abide. Somehow, I don’t ever remember hearing that word except in a spiritual context. So, if we don’t use it much in normal conversation, what does it mean?   According to the dictionary, it means to dwell or remain. That means I abide in, dwell in, remain in Florida. That means my life is focused […]
