(Romans 8:28), “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Some might consider that there is only one condition: to love God. They think that to be called for His purpose is simply another way of talking about […]
(John 14:26), “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” What an awesome gift that the Father gave to His children…Thank you for the guidance and conviction and teaching that you give […]
(Matt.6:11)’ “Give us this day our daily bread.” The heart of the problem. The heart of this petition is expressed in the word “give” because it recognizes the need of the petitioner. Even though God may have already provided the necessity, we ask Him for it in recognition of His past and present provision, as […]
(1Thess.5:16-18), “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” I was recently asked…How do I know God’s will for me? Here is the answer I gave…It works well for all who call Jesus Lord.
(Jer.18:4), “And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter” Why was this rare and beautiful masterpiece ruined in the master’s hand? Because he had run into resistance. I pray that we will be doing the Father’s will.

(Matt.6:10), “Thy will be done” Is God’s Will Your Will? Unfortunately, our own will is often the problem in seeking His will. Because we live in a culture that prides itself on ease and comfort, we desire a piece of that big pie. As a result, we tend to perceive prayer as important only for […]
(Hebrews 5:8), “though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.” Submission and Suffering are utterly contrary to the flesh. The thing man loves more than anything else in the world is himself. The thing man wants is to have his own way and to enjoy himself. Suffering, therefore, […]
“Stay away from lusts which tempt young people. Pursue what has God’s approval. Pursue faith, love, and peace together with those who worship the Lord with a pure heart.” (2 Timothy 2:22) I’ve often though about (Jonah 1:10)…In this verse we see some men who didn’t know or worship the living God…Have to point out […]
Doubts: “My sheep respond to my voice, and I know who they are. They follow me, and I give them eternal life. They will never be lost, and no one will tear them away from me. My Father, who gave them to me, is greater than everyone else, and no one can tear them away […]
