Stand Still

Episode 765 • Angus Buchan

Father God wants us to stand firm in Him. He is for us, He will fight for us! 2 Chronicles 20:17 "You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you.” Exodus 14:13-14 "And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”

Self Preservation

Episode 764 • Angus Buchan

Psalm 20:7 "Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the Lord our God." God is the one who will protect and preserve you! Lean on Him. 2 Chronicles 18:28-34 Ahab Dies in Battle "So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramoth Gilead. And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “I will disguise myself and go into battle; but you put on your robes.” So the king of Israel disguised himself, and they went into battle. Now the king of Syria had commanded the captains of the chariots who were with him, saying, “Fight with no one small or great, but only with the king of Israel.” So it was, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, “It is the king of Israel!” Therefore they surrounded him to attack; but Jehoshaphat cried out, and the Lord helped him, and God diverted them from him. For so it was, when the captains of the chariots saw that it was not the king of Israel, that they turned back from pursuing him. Now a certain man drew a bow at random, and struck the king of Israel between the joints of his armor. So he said to the driver of his chariot, “Turn around and take me out of the battle, for I am wounded.” The battle increased that day, and the king of Israel propped himself up in his chariot facing the Syrians until evening; and about the time of sunset he died."

Nothing But The Word

The Word of God will sustain us until the end of the race! Isaiah 54:17 "'No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn.

Faithful Witness In The Sky

Episode 758 • Angus Buchan

We are sojourners on this earth and while we are here we are called to reflect the Son, just as the moon (known as a faithful witness in the sky) reflects the sun, we are called to reflect the Son and be faithful witnesses. Psalm 89:37 "It shall be established forever like the moon, Even like the faithful witness in the sky.”

The Lonliest Place In The World

Episode 757 • Angus Buchan

1 John 4:8 "He who does not love does not know God, for God is love." John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."

If I Perish, I Perish

Episode 756 • Angus Buchan

Because we love the Lord we will want to please Him by living a lifestyle that He prescribes. Esther 4:16 “Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!”

The Supreme Good

Episode 755 • Angus Buchan

Because of God's love for us we can love the people around us. 1 Corinthians 13:13 "And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love."


Episode 754 • Angus Buchan

Let's not forget how much God loves us! 1 Corinthians 13 "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love."

Don't Ask Questions

Episode 753 • Angus Buchan

Proverbs 10:19 "In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, But he who restrains his lips is wise." Ecclesiastes 5:1-7 "Walk prudently when you go to the house of God; and draw near to hear rather than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they do evil. Do not be rash with your mouth, And let not your heart utter anything hastily before God. For God is in heaven, and you on earth; Therefore let your words be few. For a dream comes through much activity, And a fool’s voice is known by his many words. When you make a vow to God, do not delay to pay it; For He has no pleasure in fools. Pay what you have vowed— Better not to vow than to vow and not pay. Do not let your mouth cause your flesh to sin, nor say before the messenger of God that it was an error. Why should God be angry at your excuse and destroy the work of your hands? For in the multitude of dreams and many words there is also vanity. But fear God."


Episode 752 • Angus Buchan

God, our Father, is always waiting for us to turn to Him. He is always open-armed and waiting for us to repent and turn to Him. Matthew 12:30 "He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad." Acts 2:36-40 '"Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ." Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”

Episode 750 • Angus Buchan

Each of us has been given a purpose from Father God. Spend time in His Word and in prayer and quiet meditation with Him and your purpose will be made clear.

Finishing Strong

Episode 746 • Angus Buchan

Angus encourages us today to stand on the Word of God and finish our race well. John 19:28-30 "After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit."
