Does God Have You Absolutely, Without Limitations?

“I will give your life to you as a prize in all places, wherever you go.” —Jeremiah 45:5 “This is the firm and immovable secret of the Lord to those who trust Him– “I will give your life to you….” What more does a man want than his life? It is the essential thing. “…your life…as a prize…” means that wherever you may go, even if it is into hell, you will come out with your life and nothing can harm it. So many of us are caught up in exhibiting things for others to see, not showing off property… read more…

More Than a Conqueror

  I had a freak accident. I wanted to get up out of my chair and I shoved the ottoman in front of my chair with my left leg. Something happened in my leg. With that one movement, I pulled my quadriceps.. And listen, this was not a month ago…it was 22 months ago. I have seen a doctor, an orthopedic doctor, a chiropractor and a physical therapist. They all give me a little piece of the puzzle, but I am only a little bit better. I can’t put on my shoe or sock on my left foot and I walk… read more…

God has not abandoned you.

“They that know thy name will put their trust in thee:  for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.”  Psalm 9:10 KJV The word “forsaken” in Psalm 9:10 is from עָזַב  – the Hebrew word “azaz” –  which is a verb that could have also been translated left, abandoned or neglected. The people of God are NOT abandoned by God! They are NOT forsaken or left alone or neglected!  However, this verse does not say that that those who seek Him always get what they want. God is not Santa Claus. Sometimes He delays the answer to our prayers. He might not… read more…

God Will Protect You From Danger

Psalm 91:1-8 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust. Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.  He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day.  Nor for the… read more…

No Matter How Long the Answer Takes…

Even if you can't see it, God is working on your prayers.

“WAIT on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: WAIT, I say, on the Lord.” Psalm 27:14    “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Cor.5:7  Don’t walk by sight. Walk by FAITH. No matter what you DON’T see – God is always working on your behalf! It takes FAITH to stand and wait. No matter how long the answer takes. In our flesh we can be soooooo impatient, we think God is just tooooo slow!  It is so easy to get out from under the will of God by making things happen for ourselves.     Don’t… read more…

Prayer Changes Me

Did you know the phrase “It came to pass” is in the Bible 463 times?    The Trials Will Come I have been through some pretty scary times in my life. Some of the trials I went through lasted months, some lasted for several years. I am here to tell you, if you are serving God, you are going to have some trials. Believe me, it WILL come to pass. “For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.” 1 Thessalonians 3:4  You might be dealing with something… read more…
