Don’s Daily Devotions

Join us as we read the scriptures and a daily devotion written by Don Crisp. We pray these messages will bless us all at this time.

Starting on Monday 6th April, we will be sharing daily devotional readings, prepared for us by Don Crisp. Don will be leading us through the Gospel of John, starting this Easter time with John 13. He then moves into Paul’s Letter to the Philippians.


Sat 8th August – 1 Kings 21:25-29:

Sat 8th August  –  Read 1 Kings 21:25-29: V25:  Here is the solemn record of Scripture, that even among the godless kings of Israel, there was none like Ahab – he is, as it were ” the worst of a bad bunch!” and Jezebel was instrumental in inciting him to this wickedness. V26:  Again it…


Fri 7th August – 1 Kings 21:17-24:

Fri 7th August  –  Read 1 Kings 21:17-24: As we are following Scriptures record of Elijah and his ministry, we now ” jump” to this passage. The earlier verses of ch 21 record how Ahab, egged on by Jezebel, has continued in his godlessness, untouched by God’s mercy after the drought, to covet the vineyard of…


Thurs 6th August – Read 1 Kings 19:19-21:

Thurs 6th August   –  Read 1 Kings 19:19-21: V19:  Elijah is again in God’s will and obedient to His command – surely God’s revelation of Himself has restored him. He goes first to find Elisha, who is ploughing his father’s land. The 12 yoke of Oxen indicate a wealthy, perhaps influential, family, probably very different…


Wed 5th August – 1 Kings 19:14-18:

Wed 5th August   –   Read 1 Kings 19:14-18: V14:  Out pours the same complaint, word for word. Isn’t this Elijah ” digging his heels in”, as we say. How often we do that, when we don’t want to accept what God is saying to us from His Word – yet to me the repeated complaint…


Tues 4th August – 1 Kings 19:11-13:

Tues 4th August    –   Read 1 Kings 19:11-13: V11:  God brings him to the entrance of the cave, and sends mighty physical manifestations of power, a wind so strong it devastates the hillside, an earthquake, yet ” the Lord was not in them”. What does this mean? Obviously it was God’s power that produced them,…


Mon 3rd August – 1 Kings 19:9-10:

Mon 3rd August – Read 1 Kings 19:9-10: V9:  Elijah – who has been brought to Mount Horeb by God, with no such intention of his own, remember, comes to a cave on the mountainside, where ” the word of the Lord came to him”. Whether an audible voice or an inner conviction, we don’t…


Sat 1st August – 1 Kings 19:7-8

Sat 1st August  –  Read 1 Kings 19:7-8 V7:  Now we learn something even more amazing. This is no “mere angel” – if we dare say that – but ” the angel of the Lord”, that mysterious figure who came to chosen servants of the Lord in the OT and left them somehow aware that…


Fri 31st July – 1 Kings 19:4-6

Fri 31st July  –  Read 1 Kings 19:4-6 V4:  Fleeing alone into the desert, it seems that all Elijah wants is, as we might say, to curl up and die, pleading with God to take his life. This is not the positive longing of faith expressed by Paul in Philippians 1:23 – this is sheer…


Thurs 30th July – 1 Kings 19:1-3

Thurs 30th July  –  Read 1 Kings 19:1-3 V1:  Sadly, nothing has truly touched or changed Ahab. He returns home only to report to Jezebel – increasingly seen to be the “power behind the throne” who dominates her husband – what Elijah has done, including executing the prophets who were her proteges. V2:  She immediately…


Wed 29th July – 1 Kings 18:42-46

Wed 29th July  –   Read 1 Kings 18:42-46 V42: As Ahab goes, Elijah seeks God’s face in humble prayer, as shown by the posture he adopts. Here surely is an intercessor praying for and identifying with his people. Compare Moses, in Exodus 33:30-32. Note also, that though Elijah is confident in what God will do,…
