by Audrey Rogers on April 20th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Judges 11—Verse 36 (HCSB)“Then she said to him, “My father, you have given your word to the LORD. Do to me as you have said, for the LORD brought vengeance on your enemies, the Ammonites.”The story of Jephthah is perplexing. After leading the Israelite army in victory after victory, he celebrates by making a foolish vow to God. Why is it not surprising that his only child is ...  Read More

by Audrey Rogers on April 6th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Joshua 5--Verses 13-14a (CSB)When Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua approached him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?”“Neither,” he replied. “I have now come as commander of the Lord’s army.”This was a practical question. The Israelites were about to attack Jericho and battle was imm...  Read More

Daily Devotional from Deuteronomy 27—Verses 1-3 (HCSB)“Moses and the elders of Israel commanded the people, “Keep every command I am giving you today.

Daily Devotional from Deuteronomy 15--Verses 7-8 (CSB)If there is a poor person among you, one of your brothers within any of your city gates in the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward your poor brother. Instead, you are to open your hand to him and freely loan him enough for whatever need he has. I love the way Our Father is intentional about loving a...  Read More
Deuteronomy 2-3
by Audrey Rogers on March 16th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Deuteronomy 3--Verse 22 (NIV)“Do not be afraid of [your enemies]; the Lord your God himself will fight for you.”The book of Deuteronomy is really interesting. It is a series of sermons from Moses to the people of Israel just before the conquest of the Promised Land and Moses’ death. It is a good overview of Israel’s story and how God had been faithful to them. Moses is giving...  Read More

Daily Devotional from Numbers 27--Verses 15-17 (NIV)Moses said to the Lord, “May the Lord, the God who gives breath to all living things, appoint someone over this community to go out and come in before them, one who will lead them out and bring them in, so the Lord’s people will not be like sheep without a shepherd.”Moses had just been told by God that he is not allowed to go further because of h...  Read More
Numbers 14-15
by Audrey Rogers on March 2nd, 2021
Daily Devotional from Numbers 14--Verse 3 (CSB)Why is the Lord bringing us into this land to die by the sword? Our wives and children will become plunder. Wouldn’t it be better for us to go back to Egypt?It is so easy to read this story and get so frustrated at the Israelites. Their cries have been heard, they’ve been delivered from oppression, God saw them safely to deliverance by parting the Red...  Read More
Numbers 2-3
by Audrey Rogers on February 22nd, 2021
Daily Devotional from Numbers 2--Verse 3 Those to camp on the east side toward the sunrise shall be of the standard of the camp of Judah by their companies, the chief of the people of Judah being Nahshon the son of Amminadab…The more I read and learn about the Bible, the more I love the story of the Tabernacle. One of my favorite things about it is that the entrance must face the east. What makes ...  Read More
Leviticus 17-18
by Audrey Rogers on February 16th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Leviticus 17--Verse 11For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it for you on the altar to make atonement for your souls, for it is the blood that makes atonement by the life.Atonement is one of those “church-y” words that gets said a lot. We know the context of it and that it is related to the cross and that it does something with sin. In this verse, the He...  Read More
Leviticus 5-6
by Audrey Rogers on February 9th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Leviticus 6--Verse 6:18bAnything that touches the [grain] offerings will become holy.Verse 6:27aAnything that touches the [sin] offerings will become holy.Purity laws in the Old Testament can sometimes seem crazy. If you touch or come into contact with “unclean” things, its “unclean” status has been imparted onto you. The only way to make yourself “clean” is to follow the car...  Read More
Exodus 31-33
by Audrey Rogers on February 2nd, 2021
Daily Devotional from Exodus 32--Verse 14 “Then the Lord relented and did not bring on his people the disaster he had threatened.”For many of us, the idea of an angry and fuming God is all we can imagine. God is angry at sin. Sinners are to stand before a righteous God and be judged for their evildoing. God’s judgment will come to the unrighteous. All of this is true. But what we see here, is that...  Read More
Exodus 13-15
by Audrey Rogers on January 26th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Exodus 14--Verse 14:“The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” The Israelites were in the midst of a tricky situation. Their backs were against the Red Sea. In front of them was the entire Egyptian army. They had nowhere to go. Can you imagine the anxiety? Did God deliver them from Egyptian oppression--just to be annihilated by their hands? Yet, God had so...  Read More

by Audrey Rogers on January 12th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Genesis 28-- Verses 16 & 18“When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it….” Early in the morning Jacob took the stone that was near his head and set it up as a marker. He poured oil on top of it and named the place Bethel…” I wonder how often after this moment Jacob stopped and looked at this marker. Did his children know ...  Read More
Genesis 10-12
by Audrey Rogers on January 5th, 2021
Daily Devotional from Genesis 10-12Verse 12:4 So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him.
