Time on Our Hands

Season 11, Ep. 243
James 5:20 says "consider this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and cover over a multitude of sins." For most of us who live here in America, in the evening of the day, whether it be at 5pm or midnight, recreational opportunities are plentiful- dining out, an exercise workout at the gym, power walking in the neighborhood, going to a sport event, or family gatherings, to name a few. Most of us live for the evening of the day. I have a question for you - What Do You Do When You Have Nothing You Must Do? Out of all the recreational time in the evening of your day, how much of it is spent in dedicated talking to others about Jesus? This episode encourages us to give some serious thought to intentionally dedicating some of our evening hours within the parameters of our week to being a witness for Jesus.

What About The Conscience?

Season 11, Ep. 242
Acts 24:16 says “I always take pains to have a clear conscience toward both God and man.” It is sad today that many, perhaps most people have no understanding of what the conscience is nor do they care to know. Samuel Ward gives us explosive insight into the origin, power, and purpose of the conscience. This episode is brief in minutes, but robust in depth of content. You will want to listen through once, then go back and listen to it line by line, and meditate on this deep truth, so that your soul and spirit fully absorbs it. Talk about advancing peace in your life...this one, short, episode, can do more for your peace of mind and heart, than anything else you will hear today!Samuel WardWhat is the Conscience?Buy Voices From The PastAll readings in this mini-series from "Voices From The Past" (copyrighted material) are used with permission from the publisher.“Voices From The Past: Puritan Devotional Readings,” edited by Richard Rushing.

Now You See It - Now You Don't!

Season 11, Ep. 241
In the midst of these turbulent times, God is still doing a new thing! If you have been personally impacted by some loss during these past three years, I encourage you to look to God, focus on Him, rest in Him, wait in him, wait ON HIM, and He will birth a new thing in you and through you. This is the epitome of the reason this podcast is named gwot.rocks...I move from a disappearing church building, to a 90's Christian rap tune, to the recent decision by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, to fall out from the pandemic, back to hope for a future, in spite of all the mess!

God Gave Ozzie Osbourne His Riches!?

Season 11, Ep. 240
This is Reading # 3 in our special 20 part series on "Voices From The Past, Volume 1" (May3rd, pg.124),a 365 daily devotions from Puritan authors. Focus of this episode: Provision. In the model prayer Jesus teaches us to pray “Give us this day our daily bread” (Matthew 6:11.) Pay close attention to what Thomas Manton has to say about the peculiar destination of God’s providence, how His providence extends to all men, the difference between His common bounty and His covenant blessings, and the two-fold war in man.Matthew 5https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_MantonBuy Voices From The PastAll readings in this mini-series from "Voices From The Past" (copyrighted material) are used with permission from the publisher.“Voices From The Past: Puritan Devotional Readings,” edited by Richard Rushing.

Little Things Mean A Lot!

Season 11, Ep. 239
Do you recognize the miracle moments God has worked in your life, those tiny events, and each moment of time that is a miracle of creation? Miracles in the mundane. Those little things mean a lot, if we will just begin to believe what we see.

When an Enlarged Heart is a Great Thing!

Season 11, Ep. 238
In puritan Thomas Manton's day, the idea of seeking a private room in which to pray was referred to as "going into your closet" to pray (Matt. 6:6). What a great concept...talking to God from a place that is out of the ordinary flow of life traffic, hidden away so as not to be easily disturbed; even going to a place where people would not normally think to find you! As Manton says, private prayer is a necessary duty if we are to live the vital life of the grace of God EVERY DAY! As we “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17), God will enlarge our hearts (expand our compassion) and make us the successful ambassadors of salvation and the peace of Christ that God wants us to be. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_MantonBuy Voices From The PastAll readings in this mini-series from "Voices From The Past" (copyrighted material) are used with permission from the publisher.“Voices From The Past: Puritan Devotional Readings,” edited by Richard Rushing.
