Getting to Know Him

Posted on July 14, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

…the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him… Ephesians 1:17 I don’t know why but I’m always surprised when my husband tells me a story or says something that I never knew about him. We have known each […]

An Ordained Witness

Posted on July 14, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“This letter is from Paul, an apostle. I was not appointed by any group of people or any human authority, but by Jesus Christ Himself and by God the Father, who raised Jesus from the dead.” Galatians 1:1 (NLT)   Every so often I’ll get to verbally share the nuts and bolts of my faith […]

Do You See What I See?

Posted on July 13, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.” Matthew 13:11   It seems to me one of the biggest discouragements in the Christian walk is sharing your faith with someone who cannot see what […]

Sleeping by Faith

Posted on July 13, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 Is faith relegated to just some aspects of our life or does…can, faith matter in every area of our lives?  “The righteous shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17 In the past 6 months or so, I have not slept as soundly as I […]

Benefiting Those Who Listen

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

I was the worst.  As a young mom I often chatted on the phone with friends during the day (with texting this is much less common now) or had conversations with my husband about my fears or struggles or the slow grocery clerk or the telemarketer on the phone that day.  If I could have […]

It’s Right There in the Text

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

I recently went back to reading through Psalms and Proverbs through a Billy Graham publication, Words of Wisdom. It’s a little leather devotional, and I am a sucker for leather devotionals. I was reading through Psalm 37 and was amazed to discover 15 principles of Godly living right in the text. Don’t worry about the […]

Margin

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

The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. Proverbs 16:9 Recently, I was reminded of the importance of margin in our lives.  We live in a culture that is counter-intuitive to margin.  Busyness is applauded and awarded.  Packing as many things as possible into our days implies worth. The value of margin goes […]

It’s not About the Pain, but what it Prepared me for.

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

There are specific moments in time that are very vivid memories; when I recognized Christ as my Lord, when we were married, the births of our children and grandchildren, graduations, and my ordination. There are other not so happy events that stand out as well… a resignation, illnesses, family conflicts, and deaths. The thing that […]

Magna Carta Christianitatis

Posted on July 8, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“Know this—I am most emphatic here, friends—this great Message I delivered to you is not mere human optimism.” Galatians 1:11 (MSG)   In his introduction to the Book of Galatians, Eugene Peterson starts off by saying, “When men and women get their hands on religion, one of the first things they often do is turn […]

Be a Servant

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

I felt the Lord impress upon my heart: “Be a servant.” My initial response was to shrink back.  Have you ever noticed some people are easier to serve than others?  Some people I delight to serve, others not-so-much.  God used this moment to reveal the pride and haughtiness in my own heart. We cannot grow […]

The Road

Posted on July 6, 2021 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters

“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth”. 3rd John 1:4   I sometimes find myself asking the question, “How’d I get here?” The walk that I desire, is to walk in Truth, guided by Love. I want to make sure the path I’m on is one that will […]

Fear of Man

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

“I, even I, am He who comforts you. Who are you that you should be afraid of a man who will die, And of the son of a man who will be made like grass?” (Isaiah 51:12) You may be more familiar with the world’s term for this very common problem the Bible calls “fear […]

In Theory

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

Have you ever been to a women’s retreat or heard a Sunday sermon or even a podcast on your way to work that was just what you needed to hear?  You knew change was needed in your life and that message helped you see exactly how to make that change.  You felt motivated. You could […]

WHAT PRICE FREEDOM

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

“Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36)   Yesterday was July 4th and I wanted to share a devotional I wrote several years ago for our daily devotional, REAL VICTORY FOR REAL LIFE.   There is a story about a pig and a chicken that was walking by […]
