With the entrance of a new year (2018) I wanted to share a fresh insight into those prayers you don’t pray anymore…those prayers that have long been pushed under the carpet because you’ve prayed them for so long without seeing any answer to them. We all have them, well, at least I do. We have… Continue reading Prayers you don’t pray anymore…
“There is no doubt about it; God holds our lives safely in His hands. He’s the One who keeps us faithfully following Him.” Psalm 66:9 Have you been a believer for quite some time and find yourself almost drained from trying to follow the Lord? Do you find yourself drawing away from the Lord or activities… Continue reading Who is responsible for our walk with God?
I was driving along a busy road that had recently been re-surfaced. About every 50 ft., imbedded in the white stripe at the edge of the road – between the shoulder and where our cars are supposed to be – were new kinds of rumble strips. Not the kind you feel when you are on… Continue reading Need guidance? God’s Rumble Strips
Psalm 107:20 “He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions (or pits).” Here is a picture of God taking initiative towards those who have fallen into a pit or some other place from which they cannot get out by themselves. “He sent His word” conjures up many images such as… Continue reading God rescues us out of the pit
“As Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed Him, shouting loudly, ‘Have pity and mercy on us, Son of David!’ When He reached the house and went in, the blind men came to Him, and Jesus said to them, ‘Do you believe that I am able to do this?’ They said to Him, ‘Yes,… Continue reading Is God still able when you’ve waited a long time?
I’ve been writing about fear lately because it seems to be on the rise. Our world is full of stress, anxiety, worry, and just not knowing what’s going to happen and when. Are you anxious about tomorrow? Worried that you may not meet the demands of your life? Fearful of what “might” happen and of… Continue reading The root of worry, anxiety and fear
“My grace is sufficient for thee, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV Made perfect means to complete. It is interesting, as if it is possible, that God’s strength is somehow not complete or perfect without my weakness. Is anything incomplete with God? No….God is always totally perfect. And yet here… Continue reading God’s strength in place of our weakness!
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much… Continue reading God has finished the work of salvation
There are many verses of Scripture that invite us to ask God for whatever we wish. I rarely hear these verses talked about much, especially the “whatever you wish” part of it. Our disappointments in life color our view of God’s heart and I think that’s why we tend to run past invitations to ask… Continue reading Asking God whatever we wish
“In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His son to be the propitiation (atoning sacrifice) for our sins.” 1 John 4:10 “IN THIS” conjured up a picture of a huge box or container that can hold a great amount of stuff. It is as if God said, “IN… Continue reading God’s love – He is the initiator!
