Compassion, Faith & Action

Acts 3:6-7 “But Peter said, “I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!”  Then Peter took the lame man by the right hand and helped him up. And as he did, the man’s feet and ankles were instantly healed…”

A lot of people are confused about tithing and there is a lot of abuse on tithing. But the truth is, it does not change the fact that tithing is a principle legitimately engraved in the Word of God.

Mysterious

Job 11:7-8 “Can you solve the mysteries of God? Can you discover everything about the Almighty? Such knowledge is higher than the heavens—and who are you? It is deeper than the underworld—what do you know?

We are still contemplating  the subject of prayer. However, over the next few days, we will be looking at the mysteries of prayer. Have you found prayer to be mysterious?

Starting Point

1 Thess.5:17 “Never stop praying. Make your life a prayer.” (NLT & TPT).

Prayer is so central to the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. The first mention of when men began to call upon God and to pray was in Gen.4:26To Seth also a son was born, and he named him Enosh. At that time people began to invoke the name of the Lord.” (NRSV). Read the rest of this entry

In Preparation

Hab. 2:1 “I will take my place at the watchtower. I will stand at my post and watch. I will watch and see what He says to me. I need to think about how I should respond to Him when He gets back to me with His answer.” (Voice)

Thank God for His kindness over us and it is our prayer that God will breathe upon us and change our lives even as He speaks His Word to us. I want to start by celebrating you for hanging in there with God and trusting God all through, regardless of how this year has been so far. Read the rest of this entry

These are the third Words of Jesus on the cross of Calvary. What was going on here? Jesus was taking care of business. Jesus was Mary’s first born and it was time for Him to go. This was Jesus taking care of those who depend on Him because by tradition, Read the rest of this entry

From God

Isa. 43:19 “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”

Yesterday, we highlighted two things that can stand in the way of thinking big and they are self and fear. Do you know that some people do not see limitations? And it is not that they have not been burnt, or experienced betrayal, or experienced disappointments. Read the rest of this entry
