Judges 14-15
by Audrey Rogers on April 22nd, 2021
Daily Devotional from Judges 16—Verse 28Then Samson called to the Lord and said, “O Lord God, please remember me and please strengthen me only this once, O God, that I may be avenged on the Philistines for my two eyes.”Samson was not very faithful to God while he judged Israel. He was rash and he was quick to head into relationships he shouldn’t have been in. His own love for Delilah blinded him f...  Read More
Judges 3-4
by Audrey Rogers on April 15th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Judges 4--Verse 9And she said, “I will surely go with you. Nevertheless, the road on which you are going will not lead to your glory, for the LORD will sell Sisera into the hand of a woman.”God tends to use unexpected things for His glory. Not only was Jael a woman, she was not a warrior or an Israelite; her husband was actually an enemy of Israel.It’s easy to assume certain ...  Read More
Joshua 11-13
by Audrey Rogers on April 8th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Joshua 11--Verse 15Just as the LORD had commanded Moses his servant, so Moses commanded Joshua, and so Joshua did. He left nothing undone of all that the LORD had commanded Moses.Joshua was faithful to the original command God gave Him to be strong, courageous, and careful to follow all the directions given through Moses. Throughout our reading today, we see how Joshua faced ...  Read More
Deuteronomy 30-31
by Audrey Rogers on April 1st, 2021
Daily Devotional from Deuteronomy 30--Verse 14But the word is very near you. It is in your mouth and in your heart, so that you can do it.“Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul” has been a theme throughout Deuteronomy, and is repeated many times in today’s reading. The command to love God above all else is possible because of His words. When we keep His words in our hea...  Read More
Deuteronomy 18-19
by Audrey Rogers on March 25th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Deuteronomy 18--Verse 18I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. And I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him.It is so crazy that even in Moses’s time, prophecies were being made about Jesus. In John 5, Jesus was talking about the witnesses that prove He is the Messiah; He ends the passage by saying, “…i...  Read More
Deuteronomy 6-7
by Audrey Rogers on March 18th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Deuteronomy 6-- Verse 5You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. Complete trust and complete devotion is what the Israelites were being called to in Deuteronomy 6-7. He asks the same of us. In fact, Jesus repeats these same words in the New Testament when He is asked what the greatest commandment is by teachers of the...  Read More
Numbers 30-31
by Audrey Rogers on March 11th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Numbers 30-- Verse 2If a man vows a vow to the LORD, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word. God cares about our words and the actions that follow. This verse makes me think of Matthew 5:37, “Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.” When we put conditions on ourselves, we make it easier to break th...  Read More
Numbers 18-19
by Audrey Rogers on March 4th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Numbers 19-- Verse 9bAnd they shall be kept for the water for impurity for the congregation of the people of Israel; it is a sin offering. Clean, unclean, and water are words we see repeated over and over throughout these passages. God gave direction again and again to the people of Israel on the care they were to undertake in order to be set apart. But, just like us, the Isr...  Read More
Numbers 6-7
by Audrey Rogers on February 25th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Numbers 6--Verse 27So shall they put my name upon the people of Israel, and I will bless them.You’ve probably heard the blessing in verses 24-26. But did you notice that God is the one who gave Aaron and his sons the words to speak over the Israelites? Even more amazing is that we still hear this blessing spoken over us today—the very words of God given as a blessing to His p...  Read More
Leviticus 21-22
by Audrey Rogers on February 18th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Leviticus 22-- Verse 32b-33 I am the LORD who sanctifies you, who brought you out of the land of Egypt to be your God: I am the LORD. Throughout Leviticus 21-22 we see requirements physically and relationally for the priests, and we see physical requirements for the sacrifices. Throughout this reading we also see the word “blemish” repeated over and over. It was required that...  Read More
Leviticus 9-10
by Audrey Rogers on February 11th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Leviticus 9-- Verse 23And Moses and Aaron went into the tent of meeting, and when they came out they blessed the people, and the glory of the LORD appeared to all the people. In Leviticus 9-10, we see how the sacrifices were carried out. There were very specific commands for the sin, burnt, and peace offerings. When Aaron had carried out these commands, God appeared before al...  Read More
Exodus 37-39
by Audrey Rogers on February 4th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Exodus 39-- Verse 43And Moses saw all the work, and behold, they had done it; as the LORD had commanded, so they had done it. Extravagant—that’s how I would describe the final result of the Tent of Meeting. The Israelites worked hard to follow all that God had commanded in the building of the temple—especially the craftsman, designers, and perfumers. The end result was a plac...  Read More
Exodus 19-21
by Audrey Rogers on January 28th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Exodus 20-- Verse 3:You shall have no other gods before me. In Exodus 19-21, we see a stunning display of God’s power and His outline for morality for the people of Israel. These are the first laws given to them to follow, and they come down to two things: love God and love your neighbor (Mark 12:29-31). This is the struggle of the human condition. It’s hard for us to love Go...  Read More
Exodus 1-3
by Audrey Rogers on January 21st, 2021
Daily Devotional from Exodus 3--Verse 11:But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?”I remember the day I felt the Holy Spirit speak to me about pursuing worship ministry. I was afraid, and I didn’t feel well equipped for the task. Moses was being called to do something great and scary. He also did not feel equipped, although God had ...  Read More
Genesis 34-36
by Audrey Rogers on January 14th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Genesis 34--Verse 30“Then Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, ‘You have brought trouble on me by making me stink to the inhabitants of the land…’”When we see injustice, our natural reaction is anger—and rightfully so. What we do with that anger says a lot about us. Dinah’s brothers were furious about the rape of their sister, and rightfully so. But what they did with that anger we...  Read More
Genesis 16-18
by Audrey Rogers on January 7th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Genesis 16-- Verse 13“So she called the name of the LORD who spoke to her, ‘You are a God of seeing,’ for she said, ‘Truly here I have seen him who looks after me.’” Have you ever tried to take matters into your own hands, instead of letting God write the story of your life? I know I have many times, and in Genesis 16-18, we see how Sarai and Abram took matters into their own...  Read More
