If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself. (NKJV)This is a faithful saying: If we endure, we shall reign with Him.To reign with Him. Have you ever thought of about that? Sometimes our picture of eternal life with God is an eternal church service singing hymns that won’t be boring because we’re in heaven.

Romans 3:23 – For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God… (NJKV)O Living God,I bless You..That I can see both the good and the bad in my heart;That I can weep over the sins that carry me away from You;That in your great love and mercy You discipline meso that I might return to You and have life.My weakness causes me to look at my sin and become discouraged,or look at what good I do and become proud.I fall well short of Your glory every day By wasting the precious time You have given me,By fooling myself into thinking I’m better than I am;When I do things that are not done for Your gloryand do not come as a result of [...]
(Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Luke 6.12 Now it came to pass in those days that He (Jesus) went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. (NKJV) Today we will look at the first of four areas of prayer: Adoration… knowing God and understanding who God is. By the way, this acronym of A.C.T.S. used for structuring prayer is hardly an original idea of mine. It has been around in various forms for a long time. I am simple elaborating on the points in my own words. To help you keep perspective, here is a review of four basic areas of prayer: Adoration (Titus 1.16; Psa 99.5) – worshiping God, recognizing His [...]
What’s the hardest part of starting down the road to being debt-free? Answer: admitting you haven’t done it right so far, or at best, haven’t done it good enough. Admitting you’ve done a sorry job handling your money or that you’ve fallen for all the consumer marketing gimmicks is not easy. Often, we want to make excuses and justify our debt when most of the time it’s the result of one thing: buying a lifestyle your income cannot afford. You don’t have to be an "addict" or "out of control" to get in debt. It’s a very simple and devious formula: consistently spend more money than you make over a period of time, and as sure as the sun rising in the east, you’ll find [...]

Question:I’m going through a rough time in my marriage and I think my spouse wants a divorce and doesn’t want to try anymore. My counselor said I should be saying “binding prayers” and binding Satan from our marriage. Something about that just doesn’t sit well with me. What do you think? Answer: Well, you’ve got a couple of issues in this question… what’s this “binding prayer” stuff? And what is my advice for you at this point in your marriage struggle? First the “binding” advice from your counselor… I’ve written on this before and frankly I get a little frustrated with “Christian counselors” who offer up such unBiblical and futile advice. As Christians, we are filled with the Holy Spirit. The only way “Satan” comes [...]
