Isaiah 53-54
by Audrey Rogers on September 22nd, 2021
Daily Devotional from Isaiah 53— Verse 12Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors.Another prophecy about Jesus. Jesus was numbered among the transgressors. He died a criminal’s death. An...  Read More
Isaiah 41-42
by Audrey Rogers on September 15th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Isaiah 42—Verse 1Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations.What an incredible prophecy. When I read the Bible, I am blown away by the number of prophecies in it. Many prophecies are hundreds and some over a thousand years older than Jesus. The book of Isaiah was written abou...  Read More

Isaiah 28-30
by Audrey Rogers on September 8th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Isaiah 30-- Verse 15For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.” But you were unwilling.God keeps telling us to trust him and rest in him all through the Bible. He says things like ‘do not be afraid’ about 365 times in the Bible! When you really look at it, rest and trust are ...  Read More
Isaiah 10-12
by Audrey Rogers on September 1st, 2021
Daily Devotional from Isaiah 12--Verse 2“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.”Isn’t that incredible God doesn’t just give us salvation; He actually is our salvation. He doesn’t just give us strength He is our strength. He is the reason for our singing. He is our song and our worship wouldn’t ...  Read More
Ecclesiastes 10-12
by Audrey Rogers on August 25th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Ecclesiastes 10—Verse 20Even in your thoughts, do not curse the king, nor in your bedroom curse the rich,for a bird of the air will carry your voice, or some winged creature tell the matter.“The walls have ears” have you ever heard that quote? It means nothing goes unheard, so don’t talk bad about other people. It’d be silly to think that walls or birds could tell somebody wh...  Read More
Job 34-36
by Audrey Rogers on August 18th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Job 36—Verses 11-12If they listen and serve him, they complete their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasantness. But if they do not listen, they perish by the sword and die without knowledge.Elihu is making big claims here. In a way, his logic suggests that those who were martyred for Christ died because they were outside of God’s will. That would be silly to think.Y...  Read More
Job 16-18
by Audrey Rogers on August 11th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Job 16—Verse 4I also could speak as you do, if you were in my place;I could join words together against you and shake my head at you.It’s easy for any of us to judge someone who is going through a hard time. It’s easy to try and problem-solve to think we know why they are going through those hardships. Sometimes we need to turn off our problem solving and just lend an ear. Jo...  Read More
Esther 6-10
by Audrey Rogers on August 4th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Esther Chapter 9--Verse 22…as the days on which the Jews got relief from their enemies, and as the month that had been turned for them from sorrow into gladness and from mourning into a holiday; that they should make them days of feasting and gladness, days for sending gifts of food to one another and gifts to the poor.God often turns our hardships into joy. Here he turned th...  Read More
Nehemiah 1-2
by Audrey Rogers on July 28th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Nehemiah 2— Verses 4-5Then the king said to me, “What are you requesting?” So I prayed to the God of heaven. And I said to the king, “If it pleases the king, and if your servant has found favor in your sight, that you send me to Judah, to the city of my fathers' graves, that I may rebuild it.”I love this, before he responded to the king he prayed to God. Do you ever have thos...  Read More
2 Chronicles 32-33
by Audrey Rogers on July 21st, 2021
Daily Devotional from 2 Chronicles 32--Verses 25-26But Hezekiah did not make return according to the benefit done to him, for his heart was proud. Therefore wrath came upon him and Judah and Jerusalem. But Hezekiah humbled himself for the pride of his heart, both he and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the wrath of the Lord did not come upon them in the days of Hezekiah.Even though king Hezek...  Read More

by Audrey Rogers on July 14th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 2 Chronicles 20--Verse 17You will not need to fight in this battle. Stand firm, hold your position, and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them, and the Lord will be with you.Isn’t God great? He tells us to not fear in the Bible a couple hundred times. It’s actually the most sai...  Read More
2 Chronicles 8-9
by Audrey Rogers on July 7th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 2 Chronicles 9--Verses 22-23Thus King Solomon excelled all the kings of the earth in riches and in wisdom. And all the kings of the earth sought the presence of Solomon to hear his wisdom, which God had put into his mind.I can imagine it was quite the spectacle to go and see Solomon. The man had everything. God granted him wisdom that impressed everyone. He was the richest an...  Read More
1 Chronicles 23-25
by Audrey Rogers on June 30th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 1 Chronicles 23--Verses 25-26For David said, “The Lord, the God of Israel, has given rest to his people, and he dwells in Jerusalem forever. And so the Levites no longer need to carry the tabernacle or any of the things for its service.”This must have been a huge relief for the Levites. God provided them with a place of rest. I am betting the Levites were pretty afraid of car...  Read More
1 Chronicles 11-12
by Audrey Rogers on June 23rd, 2021
Daily Devotional from 1 Chronicles 11--Verses 18-19Then the three mighty men broke through the camp of the Philistines and drew water out of the well of Bethlehem that was by the gate and took it and brought it to David. But David would not drink it. He poured it out to the Lord and said, “Far be it from me before my God that I should do this. Shall I drink the lifeblood of these men? For at the r...  Read More

Daily Devotional from 2 Kings 24--Verse 2 And the Lord sent against him bands of the Chaldeans and bands of the Syrians and bands of the Moabites and bands of the Ammonites, and sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the Lord that he spoke by his servants the prophets.God always keeps His Word and sometimes He even brings calamity to people. This is a concept that is hard ...  Read More
2 Kings 12-13
by Audrey Rogers on June 9th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 2 Kings 12--Verse 2And Jehoash did what was right in the eyes of the Lord all his days, because Jehoiada the priest instructed him. As I was reading, this verse stood out to me. It could have just said that Jehoash did what was right in the eyes of the Lord and left it at that, but instead it chose to tell us he was instructed by Jehoida. This just brought me to think how nec...  Read More
1 Kings 22-2 Kings 1
by Audrey Rogers on June 2nd, 2021
Daily Devotional from 1 Kings 22--Verses 26-28And the king of Israel said, “Seize Micaiah, and take him back to Amon the governor of the city and to Joash the king's son, and say, ‘Thus says the king, “Put this fellow in prison and feed him meager rations of bread and water, until I come in peace.”’” And Micaiah said, “If you return in peace, the Lord has not spoken by me.” And he said, “Hear, all...  Read More
1 Kings 10-11
by Audrey Rogers on May 26th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 1 Kings 10--Verses 23-24Thus King Solomon excelled all the kings of the earth in riches and in wisdom. And the whole earth sought the presence of Solomon to hear his wisdom, which God had put into his mind.What a blessed man Solomon was, he had all you could ask for and yet he blew it!! There is a key detail I think Solomon forgot which led to his downfall. Solomon forgot tha...  Read More
2 Samuel 21-23
by Audrey Rogers on May 19th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 2 Samuel 22--Verse 31This God—His way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him.This is why we as a church gather around God’s word. And this is why we started our daily reading plan. Every word is true and perfect because the One who spoke it is perfect. It’s so important we allow God’s word to have its proper place in ...  Read More
2 Samuel 4-5
by Audrey Rogers on May 12th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 2 Samuel 5--Verse 5And David came to Baal-perazim, and David defeated them there. And he said, “The Lord has broken through my enemies before me like a breaking flood.”  Therefore the name of that place is called Baal-perazim.I find it fascinating the significance of the names of people and places in the Bible. You see it all throughout scripture where either a child or a pla...  Read More
1 Samuel 21-23
by Audrey Rogers on May 5th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 1 Samuel 23--Verse 2Therefore David inquired of the Lord, “Shall I go and attack these Philistines?” And the Lord said to David, “Go and attack the Philistines and save Keilah.”Reading about David it is interesting that he inquires of the Lord before he makes any big decisions. I think this would be a very beneficial practice for us. Before we make a choice let’s take it to t...  Read More
1 Samuel 3-5
by Audrey Rogers on April 28th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 1 Samuel 3--Verse 10 NLTAnd the LORD came and called as before, “Samuel! Samuel!”And Samuel replied, “Speak, your servant is listening.”The Lord called 4 times before Samuel answered and I think the Lord does that to us when we don’t recognize it’s Him, He keeps on calling.  Has the Lord put anything heavy on your heart? Has He been calling your name and have you been simply ...  Read More
Judges 13-14
by Audrey Rogers on April 21st, 2021
Daily Devotional from Judges 13--Verses 17-19And Manoah said to the angel of the Lord, “What is your name, so that, when your words come true, we may honor you?” And the angel of the Lord said to him, “Why do you ask my name, seeing it is wonderful?” So Manoah took the young goat with the grain offering, and offered it on the rock to the Lord, to the one who works wonders, and Manoah and his wife ...  Read More
Judges 1-2
by Audrey Rogers on April 14th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Judges 2--Verse 15Whenever they marched out, the hand of the Lord was against them for harm, as the Lord had warned, and as the Lord had sworn to them. And they were in terrible distress.God warned them, and God keeps His word. Could you imagine if he wasn’t true to His word? Without any accountability for their actions, the Israelites would probably lose faith in God rather ...  Read More
Joshua 8-10
by Audrey Rogers on April 7th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Joshua 10--Verses 12-14At that time Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord gave the Amorites over to the sons of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, “Sun, stand still at Gibeon, and moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.” And the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, until the nation took vengeance on their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? The ...  Read More
Deuteronomy 28-29
by Audrey Rogers on March 31st, 2021
Daily Devotional from Deuteronomy 28--Verse 10And all the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you.Now I don’t think we want people to be afraid of us, but there is something people should see when they encounter believers, something holy. We have the Holy Spirit inside of us. When we are in a room God is there too. If you are in a...  Read More
Deuteronomy 16-17
by Audrey Rogers on March 24th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Deuteronomy 16--Verse 6On the evidence of two witnesses or of three witnesses the one who is to die shall be put to death; a person shall not be put to death on the evidence of one witness.Interesting, sometimes things are misheard or misinterpreted. But without other witnesses, it may hold no credibility. Especially when it comes to serious matters, isn’t it important to kno...  Read More
Deuteronomy 4-5
by Audrey Rogers on March 17th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Deuteronomy 4--Verse 19And beware lest you raise your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the host of heaven, you be drawn away and bow down to them and serve them, things that the Lord your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven.As humans, we are so prone to wander. So easily influenced to worship things of the earth o...  Read More
Numbers 28-29
by Audrey Rogers on March 10th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Numbers 28--Verse 25And on the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work.All throughout today’s reading, we see time set for holy convocations. Time where everybody takes a break from ordinary work and gathers together. Wouldn’t that be a cool thing to experience today? What would it look like? How would we incorporate it? In Israel, th...  Read More
Numbers 16-17
by Audrey Rogers on March 3rd, 2021
Daily Devotional from Numbers 16--Verses 47 and 48 So Aaron took it as Moses said and ran into the midst of the assembly. And behold, the plague had already begun among the people. And he put on the incense and made atonement for the people. And he stood between the dead and the living, and the plague was stopped. Many times in the Old Testament you see the wrath of God halted, what stopped His wr...  Read More
Numbers 4-5
by Audrey Rogers on February 23rd, 2021
Daily Devotional from Chapter 4--Verse 20But they shall not go in to look on the holy things even for a moment, lest they die.To think the priests couldn’t even look past the veil, no looking, no touching or else they would die. We see later in 2 Samuel 6:6-11 Uzzah is struck dead when he tried to save the ark from falling when the oxen stumbled. But there is good news! It’s not like this anymore....  Read More
Leviticus 19-20
by Audrey Rogers on February 17th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Leviticus 19--Verse 16“You shall not go around as a slanderer among your people, and you shall not stand up against the life of your neighbor: I am the Lord.”Slander is a plague amongst non-believers and believers alike, it seems satan has a foothold in the physical church. We damage people’s reputation and sometimes we hardly know the person. Gossip and slander go hand in ha...  Read More
Leviticus 7-8
by Audrey Rogers on February 10th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Leviticus 7--Verses 31-33The priest shall burn the fat on the altar, but the breast shall be for Aaron and his sons. And the right thigh you shall give to the priest as a contribution from the sacrifice of your peace offerings. Whoever among the sons of Aaron offers the blood of the peace offerings and the fat shall have the right thigh for a portion.Since way back when the p...  Read More
Exodus 34-36
by Audrey Rogers on February 3rd, 2021
Daily Devotional from Exodus 34--Verses 29-30When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two tablets of the testimony in his hand as he came down from the mountain, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God. Aaron and all the people of Israel saw Moses, and behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him.What an interestin...  Read More
Exodus 16-18
by Audrey Rogers on January 27th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Exodus 16--Verse 8:And Moses said, “When the Lord gives you in the evening meat to eat and in the morning bread to the full, because the Lord has heard your grumbling that you grumble against him—what are we? Your grumbling is not against us but against the Lord.”Isn’t it easy to grumble? To be unsatisfied with the circumstances is understandable but if we grumble who are we ...  Read More
Genesis 49-50
by Audrey Rogers on January 20th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Genesis 49--Verse 33: When Jacob finished commanding his sons, he drew up his feet into the bed and breathed his last and was gathered to his people.Jacob’s life on earth came to an end just as all of ours will. But I find it interesting that it says “and was gathered to his people.” He was gathered to be buried with his ancestors but much time passed between his death and bu...  Read More
Genesis 31-33
by Audrey Rogers on January 13th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Genesis 32--Verse 36 Then Jacob became angry and berated Laban. Jacob said to Laban, “What is my offense? What is my sin, that you have hotly pursued me?Have you ever been treated poorly at a job or been falsely accused by someone you know? I know I’ve been angry when someone assaults my character. Jacob worked for Laban for 20 years and was treated horribly. When he finally ...  Read More

by Audrey Rogers on January 6th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Genesis 15--Verses 5-6And He brought Him outside and said, “Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.” Then He said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” And he believed the Lord, and He counted it to him as righteousness.God made Abram (Abraham) a promise and it required nothing of Abraham except that he believed it. Since he believed; God cou...  Read More
