What an amazing promise. During those times when God seems silent we can rest on his promise of being with us. ALWAYS!!

Everlasting Joy

I love how God brings reminders of truth to us just when we need it. God brought Psalm 142:4 across my path today which says, “Look to the right and see ; For there is no one who regards me; There is no escape for me; No one cares for my soul.”  and I had to go look it up.

Who was speaking? Why was he feeling that no one cares for his soul? What did he do? What did God do? These are the questions that ran through my mind.

ps 142Psalm 146 is a prayer that was prayed by David when he was in a cave trying to hide from Saul. David was being pursued by Saul whose intentions were to harm him. I can only imagine how alone he may have felt.

Saul was once a friend who now sought to kill him. It’s one thing…

485594_680517435306993_1375250913_nMany Christians don’t know how to pray. They lack the incentive that turns their prayers into a powerful statement of faith, and sadly many of their prayers go unanswered. But for those Christians who know how to pray, we can say with total certainty, “PRAYER WORKS!”

So, what makes prayer work for some Christians and not for others? Simply, it’s our lack of faith in God. Many of us come to God in prayer with a hope that He’ll hear us and with a hope that He’ll answer. We really don’t know for certain that He will hear us, that He will answer us or that He even can help us.

We tend to analyze circumstances according to our own standards and our own abilities. The amount of money we need is too great and impossible for us to attain, and we’ve thought of every possible answer and there is…

Another blog by a fellow believer. May we always remember our position in the “heavenly Calling’.

Partakers of the heavenly calling

Exodus 24:16-18.

“And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days:  and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.  And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like a devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.  And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount for forty days and forty nights.”

Initially when I read this, I set out in my feeble mind to write about the glory of the LORD.  I went to Google and searched to see what others have said about the glory of the LORD.  As I read, I realized that I am just not capable at this point in my walk with the Lord to…

Seeking God's face together

Hello to every reader. Contemplative prayer doesn’t depend solely on setting aside a daily quiet time to be open to God, to the exclusion of everything else. It is also supported by remembering God’s presence  throughout the day and night, whatever we are doing. This is done by reaching out to God with very simple prayers, which can be said even when we are busy, or sleepy. For example: “I love you, Lord. Thank you for loving me. Please bless everyone in this place.”  Prayers like this can be used anywhere, at any time: on a bus, driving, waiting for a train, waiting in a supermarket queue, whilst washing your hands, whilst walking, on waking at night, and so on. So here is today’s prayer, which is simply a slightly longer variant on this theme…  

Just a little more like Jesus

* But we have the mind of Christ…

Another post to guide me on my journey of Prayer this month. God Bless!

PRAY

Do you ever find yourself struggling over what you feel like is unanswered prayer? Most of us have gone through discouraging and perhaps puzzling episodes of unanswered prayer. Typically we begin the Christian life very optimistic about the possibilities of prayer; then we have some disappointing experiences with prayer and skepticism sets in. Few experiences pose a greater challenge to our faith. Maybe you had committed yourself to pray frequently and earnestly that God would do a certain thing for you, and because by what seemed to be unanswered prayer, you felt like He never answered it at all or either, He answered it in a way that you were not happy with. Maybe you even questioned as to if God even heard your prayer or not!

My own confidence or conviction that God answers prayer springs not only from biblical teaching but from personal experience as well. But it has taken…
