From the Pastor's Pen

Welcome to Pastor Carl Miller’s Blog! We hope that you are encouraged in your walk with the Lord through these devotions.

The Rule of God’s Peace

“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Colossians 3:15 How should those who have died with Christ and have been raised with Christ now live? Today’s focus verse sits nestled in the answer to this question. The Apostle Paul provided the saints in Colossae…

Being Taught God’s Law

“Teach me, O Lord, the way of Your statutes, and I shall keep it to the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; Indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, for I delight in it. Incline my heart to Your testimonies, and not to covetousness. Turn away my eyes…

God is Self-Existent

“God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.” Acts 17:24‭-‬25 It’s true that man can’t grasp…

God is Eternal

“Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.” Psalm 90:2 I love looking at landscape paintings and pictures. I likewise really enjoy those of mountains. Looking at mountains, especially up close in person, reminds you of their massive stature. That stature…

God is Infinite

“Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than heaven—what can you do? Deeper than Sheol—what can you know? Their measure is longer than the earth and broader than the sea.” Job 11:7-9 Some things are beyond our ability to fully comprehend. Some are most difficult to…

A Beautiful Ensemble, Part 2

Psalm 138:1-2 “A Psalm of David. I will praise You with my whole heart; before the gods I will sing praises to You. I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name For Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.” In a devotion I wrote in March…

O Lord, How Long?

“O Lord, how long shall I cry, and You will not hear? Even cry out to You, “Violence!” and You will not save. Why do You show me iniquity, and cause me to see trouble? For plundering and violence are before me; There is strife, and contention arises. Therefore the law is powerless, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous;…

Do Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly

To watch a video edition of this devotion, click here. “He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?” Micah 6:8 Israel was a mess throughout much of it’s history regarding its covenant faithfulness to God. They were recipients of…

God is Just

“For I proclaim the name of the Lord: Ascribe greatness to our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, a God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He.” Deuteronomy 32:3-4 God is holy. God is also just. What does it mean that He is just? God is perfectly righteous in how He treats His creatures. He doesn’t…

Be Holy in All Your Conduct

To watch the video edition of this devotion, click here. “But as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because as it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”” 1 Peter 1:15-16 God is holy. He is thrice holy. The Father is holy. The Son is holy. The Spirit…
