    DAY 40 - Isaiah and the purpose of the prophets

    DAY 40 - Isaiah and the purpose of the prophets

    The Old Testament prophets were not regular teachers of the scriptures. 
    God raised up these specific men at specific times during Isreal’s history to declare a specific message which they shared verbally and through symbolic actions.
    By the time Isaiah becomes one of God’s chosen prophets, the people have long forgotten God’s promises and have taken on the gods of the world around them.
    But Isaiah has a message for them. One of hope and grace and glory for this rebellious people.

    DAY 39 - The fear of the Lord (Proverbs 1:7)

    DAY 39 - The fear of the Lord (Proverbs 1:7)

    The entire book of Proverbs is wisdom that is practical in application, teaches righteousness, justice and fairness from a Godly perspective, and promotes continued spiritual growth no matter your age or spiritual maturity. 
    You will continue to struggle with sin this side of heaven which means there will always be the opportunity to be sanctified and grow holier.
    Proverbs 1:7 is a powerful verse because it cuts straight through the fluff and gets directly to the point.
    "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, fools despise wisdom and instruction."

    DAY 37 - Job's Suffering

    DAY 37 - Job's Suffering

    The book of Job makes Christians uncomfortable.
    It begs the question, "Is God good and just in His rule of the world?”
    Friend, loving God only when you are getting what you want from Him will end in disaster.
    The reality is you will suffer in this life.

    You will suffer because of sin.
    You will suffer because of natural circumstances.
    And you will suffer because God is testing and strengthening your faith.

    DAY 36 - Queen Esther

    DAY 36 - Queen Esther

    So what’s the difference between influencing someone and manipulating them?
    I mean, both Hamon and Esther wanted to produce the desired outcome that would benefit them. Both go to the king and intend on convincing him to do what they think is best.
    So what makes what Hamon did “wrong” and what Esther did “right?”
    Motivation.

    DAY 35 - Nehemiah

    DAY 35 - Nehemiah

    There have been many times I have read the words on the page and wondered what they had to do with me.
    What does the life of Nehemiah, an exiled Jew who becomes the cupbearer to King Artaxerxes, who takes on the task of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem after they have been destroyed, have to do with you while you are running errands, driving kids to and from after school activities and making sure the household budget is balanced?
    Well, let’s find out, shall we? I learned to answer 3 very simple, very direct questions after reading a verse or passage in the Bible. What? So what? And now what? 
    In this episode, we practice answering these questions together.

Purpose and Grace over perfection

I’ve been listening to Allison from the very beginning! I stumbled across her first few episodes while looking for messages on the Proverbs 31. I was looking for messages on how to be the perfect woman and I stumbled on this podcast that teaches us to be graceful women instead. I love the grace/ perfection podcast. I’m currently in the 45 day devotional on the Old Testament. Thank you thank you thank you Allison! The Lord is using you to teach me grace !
