A Word From Joe Barnett

This site is about words.
First, about God’s authoritative, inspired Word.
Second, about my non-authoritative, non-inspired words—nevertheless, written in hope that they will encourage those who read them, and above all that they will point the reader to God’s Word.

Here are the regular features you will find here.

  • Today’s Walk in the Word. A brief devotional that appears Monday through Friday. Each entry is based on a single verse of Scripture, followed by my comments related to it, and ending with a summary aphorism. To access the latest devotional click on "Today’s Walk in the Word" below. To access previous messages click on "Archives/A Walk in the Word" in the top menu.
  • On My Mind. Messages on varied topics that appear on this site at least once a month. To access the latest entry click on "On My Mind" below. To access previous messages click on "Archives/On My Mind" in the top menu.

Each of these features can also be fed directly to your email box if you wish. Just click here to sign up.

And yes, you are permitted—in fact, encouraged—to pass along any of these messages to those you feel will benefit from them. Just click on the “Forward to a Friend” button. Your participation in this way makes this “our” ministry instead of “my” ministry.

If you find anything here that brings you, or those with whom you share these messages, into a closer relationship with the Lord, I praise God and thank him for permitting our paths to cross.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you will do so often.

Today's Walk in the Word

Can You Keep a Secret?

A trustworthy person keeps a secret.|                   —Proverbs 11:13 A segment of the physician’s Hippocratic Oath runs this way: “Whatever, in the course of my practice, I may see or hear, whatever I may happen to obtain knowledge of, if it be not proper to repeat it, […]

Happiness Is a Choice

Rejoice in the Lord always.        —Philippians 4:4 Judah was in chaos. Their economy was in the tank, and a battle with Babylon that they couldn’t win was headed their way. The prophet Habakkuk was terrified. His heart was pounding, his lips were quivering, and his legs were trembling (Hb 3:16). But even […]

Blessings Galore

Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!                        —2 Corinthians 9:15 My desk is illuminated by bright lights. Thanks, Mr. Edison. Perched on my nose are eyeglasses that make things clear. Thanks, Mr. Franklin. In my garage is a car ready to take me […]

God’s Quest

We are his workmanship.     —Ephesians 2:10 “My lifelong dream was to find this great ship, and during the past thirteen years the quest for her had dominated my life. Now, finally, the quest was over.” So wrote Robert Ballard after discovering the Titanic more than two miles deep in the North Atlantic. Do […]

Thought Control

Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.                 —Proverbs 4:23 Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, Clement Stone, and Norman Vincent Peale didn’t originate the genre of Thought Control. Predating those notables by centuries, Solomon personified Wisdom as saying, “Be careful what you think, because your […]

Stand Your Ground

Be strong in the Lord.    —Ephesians 6:10 From the day Martin Luther nailed those ninety-five theses to the door of the Wittenberg church to the day he appeared at Worms before the most threatening body of church prelates and political moguls of his day, he stood as the embodiment of courage. Reading his Latin […]
