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.

Defeating Your Giant

This day the Lord will hand you over to me.    —1 Samuel 17:46 When fear attacks, you need to refocus from the source of your fear to the source of your power. Saul’s soldiers’ source of fear was the giant, Goliath. God was the source of their power. They forgot that, but David didn’t: …

We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.       —2 Corinthians 4:9 “The price of success,” said Vince Lombardi, “is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task.” Today is …

Peace Be with You

My peace I give you.          —John 14:27 It was Jesus’ last meal with his disciples before his crucifixion. “I will be with you only a little longer,” he said. While they sat in stunned sadness, he said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.” The next two days …

You Have the Right to Choose

Seek peace and pursue it.         —Psalm 34:14 Want a couple of sentences that can keep you in control? Try these: “I have the right to choose.” “I choose peace.” When some domineering person drives you to the limit of your endurance, say to yourself: I have the right to choose. I …
