I was praying one day and the Lord spoke this to me. It’s my hope it encourages you! “I love My church so much! You are My bride and I’m coming for you!” “I want to speak to you about worship. Hear these words of love I speak to you. Especially my body in America,… Continue reading God’s heart for the church service
I’ve been reading through the book of Luke and what I find amazing is how little the disciples understood Jesus. They believed He was sent from God, was the Messiah, the Christ, the Son of God, but each time Jesus spoke to them about going to the cross, dying and rising again, they always missed… Continue reading Who understands?
Have you faced a situation in your lives when it appears as if everything is coming against you and you fear failure, defeat, destruction, reject or some other calamity and you just do not have the resources to defend yourself? I think we can all answer “yes” to that question. At least once in our… Continue reading Stand still in your battles
When we read the Gospels, we can often miss the intent of what Jesus said because we’ve heard it so often. Our familiarity can blind us to the grace and truth of what Jesus has chosen to have written for our benefit. I find that if I’m too familiar with something, reading it in another… Continue reading Shameless impudence prayer!
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?
Isaiah 40:31 “Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new (or renewed) strength…” As I meditated on this idea, I had a hard time putting words to what waiting on the Lord really meant, in a practical sense. It’s a verse we have all heard time and time again and yet, the meaning… Continue reading Wait, wait and more waiting – Is God hearing me?
If you’ve never read this part of Mark 6, give it a good read and receive something good for this day! (I’ve included the text in this post). Jesus had just done the miracle of feeding the 5000 before this part of Mark 6. Previous to that miracle was the account of the death of… Continue reading Mark 6:45-52 – trials in the storms of life
“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?
How do we as believers deal with anger and other emotions? Jesus was rejected, despised, frustrated and compassionate, but what about angry? Hmmm…Anger is one of those topics we as Christians do not often want to deal with; it feels unsafe, and is often a misunderstood emotion. It’s not talked about very much except perhaps in… Continue reading Did Jesus ever get angry?
