Oh the wonders of prayer!

Dear all,
Greetings in the trustworthy name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Word: Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:12 (NIV)
For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. 1 John 5: 4-5
Thought: Oh the wonders of prayer!
Abraham’s servant prays… Rebekah appears. Jacob wrestles and prays and prevails with Christ…Esau’s mind is wonderfully turned from the revengeful purpose he has harbored for twenty years. Moses cries to God…the sea divides. Moses prays…Amalek is discomfited. Joshua prays…Achan is discovered. Hannah prays…Samuel is born. David prays…Ahithophel hangs himself. Asa prays…a victory is gained. Jehoshaphat cries to God…God turns away his foes. Isaiah prays…the dream is revealed. Daniel prays…the lions are muzzled. Daniel prays…the seventy weeks are revealed. Ezra prays at Ahava… God answers. Nehemiah starts a prayer… the king’s heart is softened in a minute. Elijah prays… a drought of three years succeeds. Elijah prays… rain descends like lightning. Elisha prays… Jordan is divided, The church prays fervently… Peter is delivered by an angel.
The weapon of prayer against the forces of evil prevails. It brings power. It brings fire. It brings rain. It brings life. It brings God! There is no power of prevailing prayer.
Dare to be definite with God like the heroes of faith.

‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty

Dear all,
May God give you more and more grace and peace.
Word: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty. (Zech 4:6)
Thought:
I cannot always understand,

The way God leadeth me,

The why, and when and wherefore

Is oft a mystery.

But I can trust His wisdom,

I know His way is best,

His heart knows no unkindness

And on His love I rest – Author Unknown

God’s quiet performances are indirect, deep and tremendously wise. God works through individuals, conquering some heart intentionally through that heart He pours His purpose like a mighty river. He continues to perform His wonders behind the scenes and below the surface of roaring waters. Adapted from Streams in the desert by Mrs. Charles E. Cowman

Make Every Effort – Ultimately depending on God – Part II

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Word:

Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; II Peter 1: 4-6

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, II Peter 1:10

But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells. So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him. Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him. II Peter 3:13-15

Thought:

Peter concludes this brief letter as he began, urging his readers to grow in the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Every day we need to draw closer to Christ Jesus so that we will be prepared to stand for truth in any and all circumstances.

Make Every Effort – Ultimately depending on God – Part I

Dear all,
May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace. Phil 1: 2
Word:
“Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. (Luke 13:24).
Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience. Hebrews 4:11
Thought:
He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life 1 John 5:12
Do we have disciplined fasting / prayer time and Bible reading time?
