Say it!, Pray it! -

Say It!

For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,

Romans 15:18

Pray It!

Father,  I thank You because I only speak of those things that You have given me to speak.

Amen.…

God, where are you?

Have you ever questioned if God heard your prayer? You pray and pray, and it seems like nothing! You do everything you know to do, and still NOTHING! If we are not careful, doubt can start to set in. Hey, it is human nature, right? Sometimes in the waiting on God, the prayer can end up being “GOD, WHERE ARE YOU?” Then along with the doubt, the self-examination begins. What is wrong with me?

The Word of God speaks about this. Let us consider the man Daniel. Daniel was “well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science” (he was smart) (Daniel 1:4). He “had purpose of heart” (He did not compromise his standards) (Daniel 1:8). He was “preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him” (Daniel 6:3).

Because this group has been through this process before, and for the most part the meeting is just a  reminder of how things are done. Read more »

There Was Sent from God…

John 1:6 “There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.”

I wonder how far John the Baptist would have gotten in today’s society? John the Baptist was unique even for the time in which he lived. His dress, his diet and his standard of living were all out of the ordinary, yet listen to what Jesus had to say about him:

Why Christmas?

I hear it every year of how commercialized the Christmas season has become. I hear how it has become nothing more than an annual winter festival, which stirs up some type of universal love and an open door for humanitarian good deeds.

Oh, I decorate my house, I buy and wrap presents, I give time and extra finances during this season. I do these things, but it’s more than that to me. It is my opportunity to be a witness. I believe Christ came in the flesh!  It is a mysterious fact that can only be grasped by faith.
