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. […]

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. […]

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 […]

The Secret Things

Posted on February 19, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Deuteronomy 29:29 The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all of the words of this law. We have many questions – why is there cancer? Why is there Alzheimer’s? Why are there floods, hurricanes and […]

A Time for Action

Posted on February 18, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

“I’m praying about that.” Prayer is good and vital, so don’t misunderstand what I am about to say. We should pray, and pray without ceasing. However, I think sometimes we are delaying what we know we should do or stalling obedience to God’s instruction. We sound so spiritual because we are praying about something or […]

Remember

Posted on February 17, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Joshua 3:12-17 Now therefore take twelve men from the tribes of Israel, from each tribe a man. And when the soles of the feet of the priests bearing the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan shall be cut […]

Be Not Stubborn

Posted on February 16, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart and be no longer stubborn. Deuteronomy 10:16 Stubborn? Who me? Who you? Do you, like me, find there are still way too many times that you go your own way, choose to follow you own agenda? There are times I would probably look no different than the Israelites which […]

Sweet Treats

Posted on February 15, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

My grandson loves sweet treats.  Anything that is sweet counts:  ice cream, candy, pastry, any kind of dessert.  But, sweets treats are special because the family does not usually eat dessert.  He must earn the sweet treats.  He may have to clean his room, pick up toys, or be “good” all morning, etc.  He really […]

God does nothing half-heartedly

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

To see the generous nature of God we don’t have to go any further than the very first chapter of the first book of the Bible. God created the heavens and the earth. He could have created it just large enough so that it would go as far as we could see. We can see […]

LOVE LETTERS

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

I am not, as anyone who knows me will attest, a techie-type person. I don’t have a cell phone and I don’t do texting, iphones and ipads, etc., etc. I am of the “old” school who loves to send and receive handwritten notes and letters – yes, even those one- or two-page newsy letters that […]

We Become What We Behold

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

Jeremiah 2:5b “…they…went after worthless things and became worthless.” The Lord spoke these words to “all the clans of the house of Israel…” about their forefathers through the prophet Jeremiah. It is a reminder to us that we become what we behold. To behold: to gaze upon (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/behold) 2 Corinthians 3:18 “And we all, with unveiled face, […]

Beloved

Posted on February 9, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

“I am my beloved’s And his desire is for me” Song of Solomon 7:10. God’s love is of holiness and purity; it is my protection. He sent His Son to demonstrate His love by being the example of living in this world and showing us to enter the narrow gate. God’s Son was without sin and […]

Like the Nations

Posted on February 8, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Israel was called out from among the nations to be God’s chosen people – separate, beloved, holy, treasured – led by the King above all kings, yet Israel desired to be like all the other nations. When you come to the land that the Lord your God is giving you, and you possess it and dwell in it and […]
