Never Lose Sight of God’s Promises

This past Sunday we looked at Eve and the birth of Seth. Seth, after Cain’s killing of Abel, represented another male seed born to Adam and Eve. In the garden, God promised them a seed and one make seed was dead with Cain’s murder. However, Eve never gave up. Her mind was still on the […] Continue reading…

Stirred Up to Pray

In the last part of the book of Ephesians the apostle Paul gives the church the most simple, practical, everyday applications to the daily life you can find anywhere. He talks of unity, holiness, fruitfulness, the Word and prayer. In fact, he ends the list with a bold summary statement by writing, “praying always with […] Continue reading…

Desperation is a Gift

All of us should feel desperation before God. This desperation comes from seeking Him in fervent, faith-filled prayer. When we do, we should feel a desperate dependence on His help so He can help us understand the things that break His heart. That is what God wants us to feel—“Lord, I’m desperate for you to […] Continue reading…

Now He who searches the hearts knows […] Continue reading…

James 1:6–8 says, “But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. […] Continue reading…

How are We to Pray?

In my last post I wrote about what we are to pray for. I listed four things from the book of James—suffering, sin, sickness and miracles. He goes on, in James 5:16–17 to tell us how we are to pray. He wrote, “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you […] Continue reading…

Prayer: First Priority; Not Last Resort

The apostle James first talks about prayer in chapter one of his book. He returns to the subject at the end of it as well. As I was reading I noticed that seven times in six verses (James 5:13–18) the word “prayer” or a variation of the word prayer is used. You know that God […] Continue reading…
