NOTE from Ron Mainse: Today would have been Dad’s 84th birthday. We all miss him very much. Four years ago, when he wrote this blog post, there was a special edition of 100 Huntley Street to celebrate his 80th birthday. You can watch the entire hour HERE. Also, tomorrow is my Mom’s birthday (Norma-Jean Mainse).


Today’s Reading: Exodus 8

Key Verse: Exodus 8:13a

So the Lord did according to the word of Moses.

Moses spoke, and God backed him up with supernatural power. Some have used this reality to get God to do their will. No, no, we are to do God’s will. First we find out the will of God, and then we speak, and God acts accordingly. Jesus’ word was always effective, 100% of the time. Why? Because He could say, “The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do” (John 5:19). Jesus got up very early each morning to spend time with His Father in prayer (Mark 1:35). Jesus functioned as a Man filled with the Holy Spirit. He was, is, and ever shall be fully God, but He laid aside the exercise of His Diety. He took time to find His Father’s plan for the new day, and then did what His Father wanted Him to do. This is also the way we can know what to speak, and God will do that which we speak as He did for Moses.


Father God, I want what You want. Help me to speak out that which You give me to speak so that “Your will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” I pray this in the Name of Jesus Who always, without fail, did Your perfect will. Amen!


I remember Norma-Jean coming home with a booklet entitled, “Hung by the Tongue.” It pointed out the power of our words for good or evil, for positive or negative results. Jesus never ever used His essential divinity for selfish purposes. He lived as a Holy Spirit-filled Human Being. The temptation of Jesus is an example of this (Matthew 4:3-4). He could’ve turned the stones into bread as Satan suggested, but He refused to help Himself in this way. It’s sad to report that there are those today who claim “prosperity” for themselves, twisting the Scriptures, seeking to manipulate God for their own purposes, taking advantage of their position of influence to manipulate people into giving sacrifically so that the manipulator may prosper. Simon the sorcerer did this. Please look this up as I have done (Acts 8:9-25). Run from those who, like Simon, are “claiming to be someone great,” and (as verse 10 says), “All gave heed to him from the least to the greatest saying, ‘This man is the great power of God.'”

Yours for hearing from God each morning and then speaking and doing His will,

  1. Happy 84th Birthday in heaven, David Mainse! Plan to watch the link to the 100 Huntley Street episode, later. Will wish you a Happy Birthday tomorrow, Norma Jean. Praying for world peace, particularly throughout the United States, Lebanon and Israel. His blessings upon you, fellow saints in the Lord. May all your needs be met and hearts be fulfilled with the everlasting love of Christ Jesus. Amen!

    O LORD, be gracious to us; we wait for you. Be our arm every morning, our salvation in the time of trouble (Isaiah 33:2 ESV). Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice (Philippians 4:4 KJV).

    Oh The Deep, Deep Love – Sovereign Grace

  2. All the best to all the Mainse family as you remember David today. He made such a huge contribution and his legacy lives on. Happy birthday to Norma-Jean! She has done so much too!

    • Yes indeed Beverlee and Eleanor Haooy, Birthday dear David in Heaven and to Norma Jean tomorrow. It was lovely to see her two days ago on 100 Huntley St. She never seems to change, she is beautiful inside and out.
      May our Heavenly Fathet Bless each and everyone who reads this blog today. Eleanor M.

  3. Thank You, Father, for Your good plans and desires for all people. The contrast between Moses and Pharoah is amazing. Moses was a most humble man who determined to follow You. Pharoah kept hardening his heart against You.
    Lord, as a great man in my life used to pray, remove our hearts of stone and give us hearts of flesh, hearts that are tender toward You and others, hearts that desire Your will above even our own…
    Dear Lord, have Your way in all this world, especially among and in the young people, in Jesus’s great name, amen

  4. Yes, agreeing with all the praise of David & Norma-Jean and blessings to David’s family as they continue his legacy for the Lord.
    Amen to Rob’s prayer from a great man in his life.

  5. Yes, Happy 84th Birthday to David in heaven. 100 Huntley St. is and was such a blessing to me especially when I was caring for my Mother here in the home. Also I am so glad that I was able to take Mother to the opening of the new building in 1992. And take a trip to Israel with them and attend the World Pentecostal Conference in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost. Thank you Mainse family for being a blessing to me and to so many others.

  6. David kept serving right to the very end.Much respect,love and thanks is owed and much more is owed to our Lord.Father God,thank you for David and for giving him a lady like Norma Jean to strengthen him.Thanks also for this blog and To Ron to keep it living.May God bless all connected to this blog.

  7. Lord Jesus be with the Mainse family as they remember David and all he meant to them.

    Our God is a faithful God who remembers His promises to His children.
    Be Glorified Oh God above the heavens, let Your Glory be over all the earth.
