The power of prayer

“God longs to express His boundless love by meeting our needs to the point of overflowing. Even if we don’t pray, He still holds together every molecule in our bodies; He is still the source of every good thing. But prayer keeps us aware of Him as our Source and opens our lives to receive His greater bounty. Continue reading

Trust

11Attachment-1

Proverbs 3 vs 5 has been my favorite scripture for a very long time. Yet, it is only now that I truly ask myself ‘why is it’? Trust speaks of certainty, a strong belief that is unwavering, a lack of doubt. The scripture says we ought to not just “trust the Lord” but to trust Him with ALL our hearts! That means one should not look to the dark clouds of impending doom or listen to the roaring waves. Rather all focus should be on the Lord. The beauty of it all is that this scripture brings a promise. Don’t we all love promises? It promises us that if we acknowledge the Lord in all our ways, the Lord himself will direct our path, that way we will know exactly where to go. Which means that we have absolutely no need to worry. If we just lay it at the Lord’s feet He will take over. So why do we worry when we can lean on Proverbs 3 vs 5-6??

Are your names written in Heaven?

view 1

“When the 72 followers returned, they were excited and said, “Lord, even the demons obeyed when we spoke in your name!”  Jesus told them: I saw Satan fall from heaven like a flash of lightning. I have given you the power to trample on snakes and scorpions and to defeat the power of your enemy Satan. Nothing can harm you. But don’t be happy because evil spirits obey you. Be happy that your names are written in heaven!”

Luke 10:17‭-‬20
