Prayer Looks to the Future

“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is GOD’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. Gratitude and thanksgiving always look back at the past, although they also take in the present. But prayer always looks to the future. Thanksgiving deals with things already received. Prayer deals with things desired, asked for, and expected. Prayer turns to gratitude and praise when the things asked for have been granted by GOD. As prayer brings things to us that produces gratitude and thanks giving, so praise and gratitude promote prayer and encourage more and better...

Life in All Its Fullness

“That you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of GOD.” Ephesians 3:19 There are people who have lost interest in life and are filled with despair because of circumstances or negative dispositions.

It does not mean a thing to ask God for a meaningful and positive prayer life unless you do your share to develop it. If you surrender yourself more completely to Christ, you will become...

The Power of God’s Love

“People will oppress each other – man against man, neighbor against neighbor. The young will rise up against the old, the base against the honorable.” Isaiah 3:5 In today’s world it seems as if chaos and anarchy rule in every corner. However, this doesn’t mean we need to tolerate the situation. In Christ Jesus, God came to fight against evil. He did this with the only weapon effective enough to overcome the forces of darkness. And it is just as powerful today – godly love. God continues to spread His love over His children and it is the Christian’s privilege...

God As Your Guide

“Is anyone of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise.” James 5:13 When you confront a problem in life, you must never forget to go to the One who mercifully offered to be your Father, with your distress, anxiety and confusion. Find consolation and strength in Jesus Christ because H cares for you and He fully understands your distress and anxiety. Go to the throne of mercy and lay your problems before Him. Give yourself fully to Him in serious prayer and supplication. Then experience the serenity and peace of mind that...
