Will You Join Us On the Journey?

Enjoying the Journey Broadcast

Six years ago this month I began writing on our blog. At the time God led me to call it Enjoying the Journey. (You may read more about why I chose that name here.) Now, on the threshold of a new year, we are taking another step on that journey. We are launching a daily podcast. There is nothing I enjoy more than teaching and preaching the Word of God, and now we have the opportunity to spread that message to many more people. The Enjoying the Journey podcast will be available Monday-Friday. It is a 10 minute Bible message that I am praying the Lord will use. In the first episodes we begin with a study of my favorite book of the Bible,…

January 2018 Itinerary and a Prayer Request

If God lets us live until Monday we will begin a brand new year. What a privilege to serve the Lord! Below you will find our scheduled meetings for the first month of 2018. We need your prayers especially for the evangelistic crusade taking place in India during the middle of the month. Please help us pray for spiritual power and souls to be saved. I look forward to posting a full report when we return. I am rejoicing today in God’s faithfulness to us this past year.

The 3 Most Important Times in A Revival Meeting

We have just come through one of the busiest seasons of the year for revival meetings. In reality, God chooses the season for revival. It cannot be scheduled or planned. It will not be confined to our calendar. Revival comes in God’s time and God’s way. As I sit in meetings week after week, preaching and praying for revival, the Lord has impressed this truth on my heart… In every revival there are divine moments that must not be missed.  Is it possible that the Lord Jesus could show up in a meeting and His own people fail to recognize Him? I fear that the Holy Spirit is often a stranger in the places where “spiritual” men conduct the annual…

Special Announcement: New Podcast!

As a twelve year old boy the Lord called me to be a preacher of God’s Word. Through the years He has confirmed that call and deepened this conviction in my heart. An old entry in my journal reads… God has confirmed His call on my life. It is not to be an administrator, a manager of things, an organizer. It is to be a preacher of the Word of God. To teach His truths. To declare Him. To call people to the Lord. By God’s grace I want to give my whole life to His purpose alone. I want to be given to Him and His Word without detour or distraction…that I might concentrate on prayer and the ministry…

Our October Schedule & A Request for Prayer

Scott Pauley Bible Preaching Slide

Thank you for your continued prayers. A precious lady at a church recently asked me, “What can I pray for specifically?” I love that. Specific prayers bring specific answers. Please pray that God would give His strength for a busy season of ministry. Without Him we can do nothing. With God all things are possible. I know I need the Lord’s enabling. Pray for souls to be saved. We have seen an unusual number of people come to faith in Christ in recent weeks. The salvation of one soul is a miracle! I long to see this fall become a true season of harvest. October is typically a month when many churches have revival meetings. No preacher can bring revival.…

Now That You Are Called

Several weeks ago I published a short post on how to know when you have been called. (You may read the original post here.) It was encouraging to hear from so many who are sincerely praying about the Lord’s will for their life. We need more people laboring for souls, not fewer! I had the privilege of having lunch with a couple of young men recently who surrendered to be preachers in a youth meeting last year. Our conversation was a reminder that those who have been called must begin immediately to both prepare and act on the call of God upon their lives. The night that I yielded my life to God’s will a wise old preacher said to…

Exciting Days – Our September Itinerary

Scott Pauley Bible Preaching Slide

“This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24). Not every day is the same. In fact, in itinerant evangelism, every day is different! The schedule changes. The surroundings vary. But one thing is sure: every day is a gift from God, a day to give Him glory. This is not only true of the “big” days, the public days. It is also true on quiet, hidden days. The Lord works on the most ordinary, mundane days of our lives to fulfill His plan. We often think of Paul preaching on Mars Hill or planting a church in some great metropolis. But what of the days where he simply walked…

“How Do You Know When You Have Been Called?”

When the Lord first began dealing with me about being a preacher I asked my dad, “How do you know when you are called to preach?” He gave what I thought was a vague answer at the time. “You’ll just know.” Now, I find myself giving the same answer to others! He was right. You will know. A divine call is inescapable. You can disobey it but you will know it. For the record, I believe in a divine call to the ministry. It is my conviction that the ministry of a preacher or some other form of vocational Christian service is not something that we choose for ourselves – it is something that God chooses for us. If I…
