Many are saying of me, ‘God will not deliver him.’ But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.” (Psalm 3:1-3 NIV) I'm sure you'll agree that last year didn't have many high points. However, one of them that I would regard as truly miraculous was the Abraham Accords. After 70 years of hostility toward Israel, Muslim nations like the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia suddenly opened themselv...

I know that I spent time this long weekend being reminded that God is in control in circumstances that feel shaky at best, and overwhelming at times. I’m so tha...

“Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving. Let us shout joyfully to Him with songs.” (Psalm 95:2 TLV) I love Thanksgiving in the U.S., and not just because of the meal with family or the whole week of leftovers. I love it because it gives us a scheduled opportunity to pause and reflect on the blessings God has given us. This year, especially with the pandemic, economic uncertainty, the U.S. election, and plenty of other challenges, we need to remind ourselves of God’s bl...

Our God is at work to accomplish His plan for His glory. As you already know, it was announced that Joe Biden is the president-elect for the United States.
