30 Days with Elijah: Pointers from Elijah’s Spiritual Journey for Yours (A Devotional)

30 Days with Elijah: Pointers from Elijah’s Spiritual Journey for Yours is the third in a series of devotionals written to pick up pointers from Bible characters for our spiritual journey. Elijah’s story is uniquely helpful because “Elijah was a man just like us” (James 5.17). To trace his life is to look in a mirror at our own.
Elijah was as human as we are. He’s not so other-than-us it makes us believe it’s impossible for us to match his faith, his prayer life, or his walk with God. He battled the same roller coaster of emotions we do. He experienced life from both ends of the spectrum like we do — from periods of undaunting courage and unwavering faith, to struggles with deep depression and frantic fear.
The story of Elijah shows us God can transform an average Christian into a person he can use despite our foibles and weaknesses.
Elijah challenged a powerful king without wavering even with his life was on the line.
He devoted the best years of his life to prove Jehovah God was the only true God, and to call Israel to turn to the Lord God Almighty from the impotent, false gods they worshiped.
Elijah persevered even though he thought he was the only one loyal to God in the entire nation, and everyone was against him.
He endured the hardships of living as a Godly man in an ungodly culture — a culture not just indifferent to God but anti-God, making every effort to erase hum completely from their history, government, schools, and homes.
Above all, Elijah was a man who prayed and obeyed.
Because Elijah was no different than you and faced the same issues you do, and because God is the same God who works today the way he did in the days of Elijah, his story can become your story.


Meet Steve Wilmot

Steve’s lifelong passion has been to encourage and inspire Christ-followers on their long and sometimes treacherous spiritual journey Home. Over the years, he’s learned valuable lessons from his own journey of faith and developed indispensable relationships that kept him from giving up when discouragement and doubts enveloped him. His purpose for the remaining years of his life is to share what he’s learned in his everyday walk with God and in his study of the Word of God.

Steve married his college sweetheart, Becki, in 1974. She was an indispensable partner during their years together when Steve pastored five churches from 1976 to 2016. They have four grown children and eight grandchildren. From 1992 until 2017, Steve worked as a mail carrier for the United States Postal Service while also pastoring a church in Edgerton, Ohio, where he and his wife still live. Though retired from his bi-vocational jobs, he continues to engage with others to help them love Jesus and follow him their whole life long.

Always with an itch for writing to spur spiritual growth, Steve now writes novels, spiritual growth books, and devotionals. He also writes a weekly column for two local newspapers called “Pastor’s Ponderings.”

In his spare time, Steve enjoys reading, gardening, and landscaping around his house and as a free service for anyone who needs his expertise and labor. He stays connected with his Band of Brothers small group as they live out Ecclesiastes 4.9-12, Hebrews 10.24-25, and Acts 2.42 together.

Meet Werner Langer

Werner Langer is a retired professional photographer, who lives in the city of Brisbane/Australia. His birthplace though was on the other side of the world, in a small town, named Wetter. Born in June 1949, Werner grew up in post-war Germany and was educated in his home country. During his final three years he served as a police-officer. In October 1969 Werner migrated to Australia, soon settling in the outer suburb of Sandgate, in the city of Brisbane, Queensland. In 1972 he entered the College of Art to study photography and these skills equipped him for a forty year long career, twenty-eight of those years as a professional freelance photographer.

His introduction to writing began at the age of forty-two, when an unusual experience on a lonely beach changed his life. “I once was lost, but now I’m found.” These words, written by John Newton, became Werner’s personal possessions on that day, shaping the remainder of his interesting life.

“Nowadays my aim is to follow an invisible guide,” the author writes.

The solid foundations of his Werner’s books are his faith in Jesus Christ, written to bless and provide clarity for his readers.

Werner Langer is the author of three books, titled “About a Gardener” and “About a Relationship”, plus “About a hidden Garden”, all available on the Amazon website.

Werner Langer served as a volunteer chaplain for seven years in the local Magistrates Court. Nowadays the author enjoys a quiet life with his wife and family, a little gardening, sailing and fishing. Watercolour landscape painting is another one of his creative passions and two book-covers feature his paintings.

Would you like to experience Heaven following you everywhere so you can leave lasting impressions of Heaven with everyone you meet?

30 Days with Joseph: Inspiration from Joseph’s Spiritual Journey for Yours (A Devotional)

How did Joseph do it?

For 13 years the circumstances of his life went from bad to worse. Slavery. Alleged rapist. Prison convict. He did nothing to deserve such rough treatment. Yet Joseph never whined or complained. He didn’t get angry or depressed. In fact, when he had the chance to take revenge, he gave mercy, grace, and generosity instead. How did he do it?

You’ll find answers in 30 Days with Joseph, the second in a series of devotionals that focuses on a Bible character. Each day of the month, you’ll accompany Joseph on his spiritual journey and learn how he overcame the challenges he encountered along the way.
And show you how you can too!

Meet J.R. Heimbigner

J.R. Heimbigner lives with his wife and three daughters in the beautiful countryside of eastern Washington state. Their five-acre hobby farm creates a wide-open space that has brought him and his family closer to God over the last few years.

While he started his writing journey trying to help people chase their dreams, it continued into the productivity and self-help spaces before God took hold of his heart and directed him to start sharing his faith through his writing.

Now, you will find him looking for ways to help connect people with the creator of the universe. Not pushing his faith on people, but sharing it with those who are open to having the conversation. His books have been written in the same manner. Openness, honestly, and stories of experiencing a faith journey that he wants to share with others.
