PRAISE AND POWER                           A PRAYER FROM THE HEART                       November 14, 2018
Prayer should not be a religious ritual but a way of life which involves practicing the presence of God. Some memorize "prayers." Some read a prepared "prayer."
Matthew 6 sets out some boundaries for our prayer life. It's not to be done for the recognition of other men. "Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward...

"When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?" (Psalm 8:3-4) This is a rhetorical question. God is mindful of each individual. Our God is the creator of all the heavens so vast and...

PRAISE AND POWER                WHO DO WE RUN TO           October 21, 2018
Who do we run to when we are faced with fears or unsettling situations in our lives? As little children we probably ran to Mom or Dad for safety and protection. They were bigger and stronger and knew how to take care of us. They would shelter us from harm and danger.
A refuge is a place that provides shelter and protection. Geese and ducks have places where they can go where they...

How great it is to hear someone say things like, "you are the best," "you're beautiful," or "what you did is awesome."  Often we hear things that ridicule, defame and debase.  Words form pictures in the mind. Mind pictures can enhance or discourage believing.  Words have meaning.  We even have an effect on what others think by the words we...

PRAISE AND POWER      WHEN ONE BELIEVER STANDS     September 23, 2018
God’s Word was almost extinguished many times in human history. It was only because of the believing of a handful of people that it continued to exist through those dreadful times. At one point Noah and his immediate family were the only ones to believe God when the world sank into depravity. Because they stood with God they were able to continue ministering His Word after the...

“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” (Psalm 27:14) God tells us to wait on Him. Instead, we often want to do things according to our timing. We live in an “instant generation.” We want it and we want it NOW. We have instant potatoes, instant pudding, microwaves, and e-mail. We are an impatient people, and yet God instructs us...

We live in the information age. We can choose from a number of sources to acquire wisdom. Although what is considered in this article focuses on wisdom, it could just as easily be applied to knowledge, learning, believing and practice. There are two kinds of wisdom. “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally [generously], and upbraideth not [without insulting];...

PRAISE AND POWER             GOD’S WORD IN OUR HEART          July 18, 2018
Psalm 119:11 says: “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” One of the benefits of knowing God’s Word is knowing His will.
