To Hell with "How" & "Why"

Posted Sep 3rd 2007, 02:48 by Washed Lives Ministries on Christian Living


Heb 11:1  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
 
The earthly church is coming under questioning behind the conduct of popular preachers and personalities.  Some super intellects question HOW a god could let scandals, tragedies, and injustices take place in a seemingly increasing pace.  And some folks just question the practicality and logic of this religion called Christianity.
 
I heard some folks say and others write, “What’s going on with the church?”  My...

The Word for Today

Posted Aug 31st 2007, 03:39 by Washed Lives Ministries on Christian Living

The Word for Today
Any house built on other than a sound and solid foundation is a house at risk. Then one must consider the grounds upon which the foundation is built as well, because the shifting of the earth beneath the foundation will cause the foundation to crack. When the foundation experiences this shifting, the walls throughout the house crack as well and unless it is attended to very soon, more and more damage is done to the structure of...

Touch & Agree

Posted Aug 29th 2007, 07:39 by Washed Lives Ministries on Christian Living

This prayer was reportedly given in Kansas at the opening session of their Senate recently. We would do well to touch and agree with this Pastor in his bold prayer before God and man.
It seems prayer still upsets some people. When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:
"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and...

The Word for Today

The Word for Today
As we prepare ourselves to meet with today, we would do well to contemplate the purpose of the Word of God and the power of prayer. Christ came to specifically destroy the works of the enemy in our lives. As we meditate on the Word, let us meditate on our self in light of the Word in cooperation with the Father.
As we absorb the Word into our lives both by prayer and meditation, we are allowing the...

Blessed or Burdened

Blessed or Burdened Pt. 1
Stephanie Harris
 
Which one are you? In the past month the Holy Spirit has shown me the importance of order, which coincides with obedience. I was talking to a younger saint about financial issues. I have in no way earned my way into the Fortune 500, but God has made a great transformation in my mind about money. After speaking to this saint, I reflected that so many of my early financial blunders were due to doing good things out of...

How long?

How long?
By Stephanie Harris
 
My flesh asked the question “How long?” I heard The Holy Spirit say, “As long as it takes.”
 
How many times have I asked that question, as if I was going to absolutely crumble under life’s hardships? Too many to count. There have been many times that I have felt as though I have been dealt with unjustly. I would throw a spiritual temper tantrum and point to my enemy like a little child and ask God, “Did you just...

I thought You said, "ask"

I thought You said, “ask”
By: Stephanie Harris
 
I was talking to a brother this past summer and he commented on how he was praying to God that he be a better brother, father, and all around man. I was moved by his words, but his past track record left some doubt in my mind as to the conviction behind his statements. Meanwhile back at the ranch about 10 months later, I can see little evidence of the fruit of such a beautiful prayer. From...

Love my enemy... for doing what?

Posted May 22nd 2006, 10:54 by Washed Lives Ministries on Christian Living


I'm challenging that. I'm telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer,
(Matthew 5:44 MSG)
Love your enemies is something I have heard since childhood.

Secure As Mt. Zion

Secure as Mount Zion
Those who trust in the Lord are as secure as Mount Zion; they will not be defeated but will endure forever. Just as the mountains surround and protect Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds and protects his people, both now and forever.
Psalm 125:1-2 NLT
It is wise to break off the contemplation of enemies and dangers by crying out to God. Prayer is a good interruption of a catalogue of perils.
Alexander Maclaren (1826-1910)
True Security
