Power To Prevail

Hosea 12:3-4 “He took his brother by the heel in the womb, and by his strength he had power with God: Yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto him: he found him in Bethel, and there he spake with us” (KJV).

We are still on our meditation on prayer. So far, we have looked at the effectiveness of prayer, the different types of prayer, and praying in tongues. Have you seen from afar or experienced in your life something being changed literally by prayer? Our focus for the next few days is on having power, Read the rest of this entry

About Tongues, II

Heb.6:12 “and not grow lazy. We want you to walk in the footsteps of the faithful who came before you, from whom you can learn to be steadfast in pursuing the promises of God.” (Voice)

Yesterday, from our reading in 1 Corinthians 14:1-15, we saw that Paul did not have an issue with speaking in tongues, neither did he have an issue with speaking in tongues either in a public place or a private place. However, he had an issue with speaking in tongues in a public gathering to God’s people. Read the rest of this entry

The Drill

Matt.26:42 & 44 “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.” So he went to pray a third time, saying the same things again.”

Mysteriously, it seems that God Will Not Act Unless We Pray. Mysteriously, even though God knows everything He Still Wants Us To Ask About What He Already Knows. Mysteriously, God wants us to keep asking about The Same Thing, Even Though We Have Asked Him Before. Read the rest of this entry


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? I have found prayer to be mysterious. Rev.10:7 “but in the days when the seventh angel is to blow his trumpet, the mystery of God will be fulfilled, as he announced to his servants the prophets.” (NRSV). Read the rest of this entry

Why Pray?

Luke 11:9-10 “…keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Why do we pray? We pray because God commands us to pray. We pray because prayer empowers us to resist temptation. We pray because we depend on God. We pray because we love Him. We pray because God loves us. Read the rest of this entry

How Much More

2 Kings 20:1-2 & 5 “… The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz went to him and said, “This is what the Lord says: Put your house in order, because you are going to die; you will not recover.” Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed…  “Go back and tell Hezekiah…” (NIV).

Some people say once God has spoken that it is. Not in all cases and this is why you need to understand the difference between prophesy, God’s promises, and God’s decrees. A prophesy can be changed, it does not make God a liar. Read the rest of this entry

Speak Up!

Matt.7:For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” [emphasis added]

Today’s anchor scripture was a defining scripture for me as a believer. This scripture changed a whole lot of things for me over twenty years ago when I read this scripture, it blew me away. Read the rest of this entry

Met In Him

Heb. 10:23 “Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.”

Do you believe that the Lord will do what He has said? Elizabeth said something that is hugely profound to Mary in Luke 1:45 “You are blessed because you believed that the Lord would do what he said.” (emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Cede Control

Job 11:13-18 Surrender your heart to God, turn to him in prayer. . . Then… you will be confident and fearless. Your troubles will go away… and your darkest night will be brighter than noon. Then you’ll rest safe and secure, filled with hope and emptied of worry!” (CEV, emphasis added)

Yesterday, we looked at the woman of Shunem and how the fear of disappointment would have stopped her from receiving God’s blessings for her. However, Elisha said to her, whether you believe it or not, whether you like it or not, you will have a boy next year. Read the rest of this entry

New Chapter

Isa. 43:18-19 “Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (NKJV).

Mary had the fear of inadequacy and God said to her, ‘fear not’. Joseph had the fear of disapproval and God said to him, ‘fear not’. The shepherds had the fear of sudden change and God said to them, ‘fear not’. Herod had the fear of losing control, Read the rest of this entry
