ARE WICKED RULERS AND NATIONS JUDGED?  Or, Six Realities that Vladimir Putin Doesn’t Know

ARE WICKED RULERS AND NATIONS JUDGED? Or, Six Realities that Vladimir Putin Doesn’t Know

by Bill Elliff July 01, 2022

In each generation there are wicked rulers leading nations to do wicked things, oppressing those around them with senseless violence and evil. Hitler had his day and Stalin, and now Putin as he ravages Ukraine.

Where is God in all of this? The small, one-chapter book of Obadiah gives us the answer: God will always, ultimately judge wicked men nations. Justice wins the day. Notice God’s word through Obadiah to the wicked nation of Edom. No nation that ignores God will escape His judgment.

HOW DO YOU MAKE EACH DECISION IN THE COMMON DAY AND HOW IS THAT WORKING FOR YOU?

HOW DO YOU MAKE EACH DECISION IN THE COMMON DAY AND HOW IS THAT WORKING FOR YOU?

by Bill Elliff June 29, 2022

Your life is made by multiple decisions. So, what do you do first as you face the choices of each day? Sadly, most of us do not do what Jehoshaphat recommended. “Please inquire FIRST for the word of the LORD.” The word “first” literally means “as the day.” It could mean “today, right now.” But it also implies “for this day, in this particular moment.”

GOD’S LIMITATIONS

GOD’S LIMITATIONS

by Bill Elliff June 28, 2022

Our limited thoughts about God are our most limiting condition. What we believe about Him determines everything about us: what we think, how we respond, and what we will accomplish in life. It even determines what we believe about ourselves, for we were made in His image. To think less of Him is to dramatically decrease our understanding of our own potential.

THE FIRST STEP TO WISDOM

THE FIRST STEP TO WISDOM

by Bill Elliff June 22, 2022

A wise man is not only knowledgeable but has the unique ability to apply the right truth at the right moment in the right way. He is the one you seek when you don’t know what to do. He is the one who speaks little in a meeting, but when he opens his mouth, he has the word that everyone has been waiting for; that clarifies the entire issue in a sentence. As opposed to the brashness of the arrogant, his words carry a depth and solidity and warmth that is unusual and profound.

ALL THE WAY TO THE FINISH LINE

ALL THE WAY TO THE FINISH LINE

by Bill Elliff June 21, 2022

This is a consistent principle that God speaks to us repeatedly: if you have an affection for something God has forbidden, it will gradually turn your heart to the god behind that affection. You will not be a man after God's own heart like David was, but a man whose heart is turned away after other gods, like Solomon.

THE PRACTICAL PURPOSE OF OUR DAILY DEVOTIONS

by Bill Elliff June 09, 2022


I once had a lawyer I had the privilege of discipling that would always ask me "What's the purpose of the exercise?" Great question. So, why would I get up early every morning and meet with God? What's the point of reading and studying the Bible over and over again?

THE POWER OF YOUR TONGUE

THE POWER OF YOUR TONGUE

by Bill Elliff June 06, 2022

What you say today will have effects far beyond your imagination. Your words carry the power of life or death, good or evil, blessing or cursing. All through the Scripture, God instructs us about the use of the tongue. His tool for motivation is by showing us the tongue’s effects—for good or evil.

SET IN HIS WAYS

SET IN HIS WAYS

by Bill Elliff May 30, 2022

Habits can be terribly bad or wonderfully good. The Psalmist's prayer was for a good habit. In fact, the best of all habits. The entirety of Psalm 119 is intended to convince us of the unbelievable value of listening to God through His Word and then following His directives.

THE DEVASTATING RESULTS OF SIN

by Bill Elliff May 23, 2022

Sin has consequences. Every sin, all the time. God is merciful, but our sin sets things in motion. Notice the litany of David about what his sins had done in Psalm 38.
