God saw their misery - God saves from many dangers - God this city!

Posted Jan 14th 2010, 07:10 by A Lament on Christian Living

...God saw their misery
when he heard their cry.
He remembered his agreement with them,
and he felt sorry for them because of his great LOVE.
He caused them to be pitied
by those who held them captive.
Lord our God, save us
and bring us back from other nations.
then we will thank you
and will gladly praise you.
Praise the Lord, the God of Israel.
He always was and always will be.
let the people say, "AMEN!"
Praise the Lord!

Psalm 106:44-48

CHRIST: The Perfect Priest
by Max Lucado 
 When we see Christ, what will we see?
We will see the perfect Priest. "He was dressed in a long robe and had a gold band around his chest" (Revelation 1:13). The first readers of this message knew the significance of the robe and band. Jesus is wearing the clothing of a priest. A priest presents people to God and God to people.
You have know other priests. There have been others in your...

Changed from the Inside Out

When you believe in Christ, Christ works a miracle in you. You are permanently purified and empowered by God himself. The message of Jesus to the religious person is simple: It’s not what you do. It’s what I do. I have...

Good Night, Red Light

"Weeping may last through the night,
but joy comes with the morning."
(Psalm 30:5)
During my first mission trip to India, I heard about the Kamathipura section of Mumbai, where approximately 100,000 women and children live in sexual slavery. The number of trafficked persons is difficult to determine due to the clandestine nature of the crime, but the Indian government claims that...

"Does this look like a cult to you?"
Today's post is a little different. And our topic today happens to be about when we pray to the Lord that we should Bless God and why we should bless God. But before I begin please let me first share a little background. On Thursday Moonbattery.com (9/17)  saw the photograph that's shown above. Here's the story:

Just Do What's Right - Remembering 9/11

Just Do What's Right
READ Leviticus 11:1-15:33
SITUATION God set forth his laws for purity. They included food, childbirth, skin diseases, and bodily fluids.
OBSERVATION Failure to obey these regulations was considered sin. While following God's laws did provide good hygienic results, they also separated the pure and clear from the impure and unclean. Israel was to be distinct from pagan nations surrounding them. We make decisions daily that may not be popular but may be proper.
INSPIRATION Anchor your convictions to the Word...

The Seven Big Lies of Obama’s Speech
– JWR – September 10
We had our warning during the campaign, we really did.
Remember Barack Obama’s famous speech on race, back in March of 2008? Obama had spent 20 years listening to the sermons of Jeremiah Wright, full of venomous anti-Americanism and attacks on “white America.” Yet when the reverend’s rants were revealed to the public, Obama tried to convince us that he just happened to be missing from the pews on any well-documented...

Responding to Conflict

Posted Sep 10th 2009, 08:37 by A Lament on Christian Living

 Responding to Conflict
Dr. Charles Stanley
A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel.
Proverbs 15:18
When conflict occurs, people often look for someone to criticize. I remember being severely chastised while in a meeting at another organization. Because of God's enabling, I was able to remain calm and react in a godly manner.
Turning to the Lord in prayer is always the best way to respond in a crisis. As we do, we can ask for Him to provide:
