Revealing our Blessed Helper

I have to reveal this because He has told me to reveal.  These things happen often w/ the Lord and this posting shows how the Lord can work in our lives when we surrender to Him.  We will see Him working, but we can only see this if we look! Revealing our blessed Helper. Revealing God – Continue reading: Revealing our Blessed Helper

The Love and Compassion of Jesus Christ

For anyone who is a member of the Body, I urge you to take a look at God’s Emergency Response Team and see what the Love of Christ is doing over at G.E.R.T. Ministries.  It’s a ministry that reveals the Love of Christ in local communities, as well as nationally when emergencies arise.  The Team itself consists of the Body – you and I.  Also, it’s a 501(c)(3) non-profit Faith-based ministry.

Weapons of Satan – Pride Part 1

Mark 8:36 – “What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?”

My most recent bible studies and books I’m reading have all had the same theme – Pride, Self, Ego, etc.  It made sense for me to blog about it since He is blessing me with abundant teachings.  I pray I’m a good student and am learning well.  Some things are taken from scripture, Max Lucado’s Life Lessons on James, and the 3 Battlegrounds from Francis Frangipane.  I highly recommend a reading of my previous postings first.  Weapons of warfare, placing thoughts into captivity, Wisdom and Choice, and so on.  Many of these things come together in this post, so i highly recommend a gathering of knowledge.

Weapons of Satan – Pride Part 2

The Lord revealed more to me today on this topic and I felt compelled to share what He has given. This is a follow-up to this post: Weapons of Satan – Pride Part 1.

Just as the Lord allowed Job to be attacked, He allows us to be attacked.  The sin itself, as well as the temptation, is not of the Lord.  The trials and tribulations we experience are blessed experiences for our growth.  The Lord allows Satan to work on us, for our well being and growth.

How to get answered prayers Part 2

Here is a follow-up to the first part of this message – How to get answered Prayers – Part 1.  It’s a quick guide on how to spend your time within prayer, beginning with step 1.  Most of this was taken from a book, One Hour of Prayer – highly recommended:

1 Praise
Spend the first couple of minutes Praising the Lord for His character and for who He is. Use His names to praise Him. Continue reading: How to get answered…

Placing every thought into captivity

Taken from a Rick Warren Daily Devotional – “The fruit of the Spirit begins in your thought life. The seeds must be planted in your mind: The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel determines the way you act.”

One area that has been a topic for me lately is placing every thought into captivity with Christ.  Continue reading: Placing every thought into…
