The Devil Wants Your Vision, But The Lord Wants Your Limp

The devil wants your vision, your strength! But the Lord wants your limp. In 1 Samuel 11, we read how Nahash the Ammonite came against the people of Jabesh Gilead, blockading them and backing them up against a corner, so to speak.

My mother was a little Japanese lady, only 4’11” tall. Throughout the years I was growing up, she would always say, “My Dougie is going to be a doctor.” I never became a medical doctor but when I received my Doctor in Ministry degree, she was so proud. She had watched the journey of my […]
