Take-Action

Ps.12:6 (TLB & NKJV, emphasis added) “The Lord’s promise is sure. He speaks no careless word; all he says is purest truth… Like silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”

The power of prayer is not in our prayers but in His answering. Some people are so confident in their prayers. Have you heard statements like this, “When I pray…”? Who are you? It is good to pray and if you think you pray well, praise God for you. Read the rest of this entry

Because

Rom.8:31-32 (VOICE) “So what should we say about all of this? If God is on our side, then tell me: whom should we fear? If He did not spare His own Son, but handed Him over on our account, then don’t you think that He will graciously give us all things with Him?”

Joshua 14:6-12 [please read] highlights two things to which Caleb’s response to the Lord and to Joshua was, “Bring-it-on!”. The first is, Bring On The Promises Of God and the second is, Bring On The Giants. Read the rest of this entry

Surely

Josh.14:6 “…Caleb said to Joshua, “Remember what the Lord said to Moses, the man of God, about you and me…”

 

God made a promise through Moses. Moses died. Caleb said, “The promise did not die, bring-it-on! Moses may die but the promise of God remains. Bring-it-on! Num.23:19 “God is not a man, so he does not lie. Read the rest of this entry

Posture

Num.23:19 “God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?”

 

Josh.14:8…For my part, I wholeheartedly followed the Lord my God.” (emphasis added). Wholeheartedly describes Caleb’s posture as regards God’s promise and this is very instructive. Josh.14:11I am as strong now as I was when Moses sent me on that journey, and I can still travel and fight as well as I could then.” Read the rest of this entry

Courage 2.0

Heb.11:34 “quenched the flames of fire, and escaped death by the edge of the sword. Their weakness was turned to strength. They became strong in battle and put whole armies to flight.”

 

David displayed the courage to obey his father and secondly, David displayed the courage to face the ‘Eliabs’. Unfortunately, in some parts of the world, the culture subjugates younger people. They think young people do not Read the rest of this entry

Courage 1.0

1 Sam.17:32 & 37 “Don’t worry about this Philistine,” David told Saul. “I’ll go fight him!” …The Lord who rescued me from the claws of the lion and the bear will rescue me from this Philistine!”

 

David displayed courage in four areas, and we are going to learn from him. I am trusting that as you sit with God, He will expand and deepen your understanding and insight in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

Surely!

Ps.56:9 “Then my enemies shall turn back and scatter on the day I call out to You. This I know for certain: God is on my side” (Voice, with emphasis).

In today’s scripture reference, David makes a profound statement. David says, “I am not pretending that I do not have enemies. I am not pretending that everything is going to be rosy. Read the rest of this entry

His Will Not Yours

Matt.26:39 He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”

The Bible tells us again that in Matt.26:42 Then Jesus left them a second time and prayed, “My Father! If this cup cannot be taken away unless I drink it, your will be done.” 44 So he went to pray a third time, saying the same things again.” After reading this, Read the rest of this entry

This Daniel

Dan.6:3 (NKJV) “Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm.”

I made the football [soccer] team in my first year in secondary school. It was a military school so naturally our coach was a military man. In order to teach us team work, he made us do laps around the pitch together. The team was made up of about seventeen people and the rule was, we had to Read the rest of this entry

Spot Cleaning

Rom.5:5 “And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us…” [with emphasis]

It is so important for us to completely eradicate distractions because of what is at stake in our lives. The first type of distraction we must deal with is the “Harmless” Distraction. Read the rest of this entry
