HIS MATCHLESS WORDS

Bill Elliff Bible Faith Featured

""Thus says the Lord"" (Jeremiah 51:1) The first phrase of my reading this morning overwhelmed me. I could not read further. How many times in Scripture are these incredible four words (or their equivalent) repeated? HE SPEAKS The whole Bible itself is nothing less than one long communication from our God, covering countless ages with millions of people. And the most overpowering thought to me is—they are His words to me. They are personal words, living and active, straight from His heart to mine. WE HEAR  It is still a mystery how we as humans can hear His voice in...

THE PRAYER THAT NEVER FAILS

Bill Elliff Featured Prayer

This week and this year you will face many different experiences. Problems will arise, burdens will come. Decisions will need to be made and many are life-altering. What do you do?

There are some who become full of themselves, vainly thinking they can handle anything. The word at this end of the spectrum is PRIDE. You can always predict how a...

What do You Really Want?

Bill Elliff Featured

Every man has his eyes set in one of two directions: either on this world or the next. Some men's focus is limited to the earthly.  David said about such people that they are "men of the world whose portion is in this life" (Psalm 17:14b) THE RICHES OF THIS LIFE There is an abundant, glorious treasure in this world, but it is fleeting. This world as we know it will not remain. But the most pressing problem is that we will not remain, in our present state. If you live a long life you will only enjoy 50-70 more years of...

What Keeps you Awake at Night?

Bill Elliff Featured Prayer

What Keeps you Awake at Night?

I have had so many moments in my life where I just couldn't sleep. A troubling situation at church or in my life personally or the life of someone I love. An enemy that was after my hide and the devil's constant accusations. You name it, I've lost sleep over it. King David faced the worst. His own son, Absalom, led a rebellion against him and drove him from his own city and throne. What was his response and what was the remedy to his burden and sleepless nights? Psalm 3  1  O Lord, how my adversaries have increased! Many...
