Praying Together in Exile

April 7, 2017

Praying Together in Exile Christians love to tell and retell stories about prayer in hard times: Corrie ten Boom praying in the Nazi concentration camp, Darlene Deibler Rose praying in a Japanese prison camp, Amy Carmichael praying in the spiritual darkness of India. These favorite narratives remind us that God faithfully hears and answers...

Devotion for Nov. 15, 2009 For many people, the ideal Thanksgiving looks a lot like the Norman Rockwell painting, "Freedom from Want," which appeared on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post in 1943.

November 22, 2009

Devotion for Nov. 22, 2009 There once was a very wealthy man. His farmland was very productive. In fact, his crops were so abundant that his barn couldn't hold the harvest.

December 28, 2007

Devotion for December 28, 2007 As is well-known, today’s culture is increasingly driven by sexual immorality. Sex outside of marriage is portrayed as the norm; sitcoms and movies are replete with obscene jokes and sexual innuendoes; and magazines and Web sites glorify lust.

Intercession: Prayer for Sanctification

May 7, 2013

Intercession: Prayer for Sanctification “Do as I say, not as I do.” It’s a tempting refrain, especially for parents who live under the constant scrutiny of sets of small eyes.

November 1, 2019

Today_with_the_President Thanksgiving at the Jobe home is a festive event. Since my wife, Dee, has a large extended family, we often crowd as many as 30 people around our table.

Gates of Death

March 6, 2020

Gates of Death The Bible’s gates of hell or “gates of death” (v. 13) may remind Lord of the Rings fans of the Black Gate of Mordor. In J.R.R. Tolkien’s books and the movie adaptations, the Black Gate is a fearsome structure—dark, huge, seemingly invulnerable, and guarded by legions of powerful, evil creatures. Merely to approach this gate...

Devotion for Nov. 25, 2004

November 25, 2004

Devotion for Nov. 25, 2004 National Geographic magazine has reported that wild turkeys are now here to stay. A century ago, their population had dwindled to an estimated 30,000, because settlers had moved westward, cleared land that was the turkeys’ natural habitat, and over-hunted them for food. Today, however, due to various factors, wild...
