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 […]

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

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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Real Life

Posted on May 3, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ.  (Philippians 3:8) The process of Christian maturity requires daily dying.  I have been crucified with Christ; it […]

Accepting Correction

Posted on April 30, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD,  Nor detest His correction; (Proverbs 3:17) Did you cringe at that title?  Being corrected or called to accountability has got to be one of the most difficult things we face as humans.  I will be first (well maybe) to admit that I do not like to […]

But I Can…

Posted on April 29, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Oh, how many times have I said that? But I can…believing that I still need to do more, do better, improve. Until we get to the point of realizing we can do NOTHING apart from God we will keep running the treadmill of self. … for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5 Apart from Christ we can […]

By Faith

Posted on April 28, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

It was like a V-8 moment.  Something I have known for most of my life as a believer (35 years) but it shot off the page and hit me square between the eyes. I was reading a book for my Recovery Coaching certification when I read this statement: “It is most difficult to let go […]

Worthy of the Gospel

Posted on April 27, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

It caught my eye. “Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ…” Philippians 1:27 It got me to wondering, what does a life worthy of the gospel look like? I did a little research.  The word worthy in this context means suitably, worthily, in a manner worthy of[i], appropriately, as becometh, after a […]

Know the Truth

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

And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not […]
