Obtaining Guidance

Obtaining Guidance

The most frustrating thing about God’s guidance is that it happens in God’s time and in God’s way. Of course, we understand it has to be that way. But how we would like to be able to receive it when we want it. If we want to do God’s will, why is it so difficult sometimes to know what to do next? Well, God’s ways are higher than ours for sure. And God values the process of obtaining guidance as…

Prayer Is the Most Important Work

Prayer Is the Most Important Work

Do you feel you’re not that talented? Not gifted enough to make a difference? You’re wrong, my dear friend. Let me tell you, being ordinary is not a stumbling block, it’s a stepping stone for the most important work: prayer. Ask and keep on asking and it will be given to you; seek and keep on seeking and you will find; knock and keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you. (Matthew 7:7, AMP,’) We are all called to pray but many neglect…

How to Pray without Ceasing

How to Pray without Ceasing

I’d always kind of wondered how to pray without ceasing (1 Thess.5:17, NRSV,*) as the Bible tells us to do. You know, we have normal lives to live, right? We can’t drop everything to just pray. So what is the secret for praying without ceasing? I had already learned to pray while working or driving and I cherished my special times of prayer but then I noticed that my whole internal monologue had become a dialogue with God. I seem…

Impossible Prayers

Impossible Prayers

How is your prayer life? Are you praying impossible prayers? Or do you settle for nice little prayers? I hope you choose to pray big, bold prayers. Because that tells me your God is big and mighty. You see, “God delights in answering our impossible prayers” as Bob Goff has put it. God delights in you asking for impossible things. Because that tells him that you a) need him, b) you believe he can do mighty things, and c) you…

Prayer Is a Gift

Prayer Is a Gift

Prayer is a gift in so many different ways. First of all, prayer is our way of communicating with God. Isn’t it amazing that – because of Jesus – we can approach God anytime and anywhere? And God is waiting for us. God’s there, listening for all who pray,    for all who pray and mean it. (Ps. 145:18, MSG) A wondrous thing about prayer is the fact that we are heard. We feel better right after our amen even though it is only…

Grace for Weary

Grace for Weary

I hope you, my friend, know that you don’t need to earn your salvation. You receive it as a gift when you believe in Jesus. Grace is enough. You are enough. Why do we then talk so much about tending our faith or growing in our faith? We are called to live with God and a lot of it happens via spiritual exercises. But what if we are for one reason or another so weary that we can’t even think…

We Cannot Pray Enough

We Cannot Pray Enough

We can’t value prayer enough and we cannot pray enough. Prayer is a marvelous gift of God and meant to put in good use. And often. All the time, actually. We all know prayer is our way of communication with God Almighty. Why do we then neglect it? It does not make sense, does it? Especially because we can change the world one prayer at a time. Paul Minner has said “Prayer is a moment of incarnation – God with…

Spiritual Transaction

Spiritual Transaction

Are you spiritually tuned to God? Or are you one of those Christians who live under their privileges as God’s children? I hope you claim all the blessings meant for children of God. Because only that way you can live as you are meant to live. When spiritual transaction is part of your everyday living, you are well empowered for victorious living. Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have…

Live in Jesus’ Name

Live in Jesus’ Name

I often say “let’s start with prayer because it’s the best way to start anything”. I do mean it and I do practice it. Why you ask. Because prayers in Jesus’ name are powerful. So start always with prayer, especially if you are a recent graduate or otherwise starting a new phase in your life. And continue to live in Jesus’ name. Whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of…

Listening to the Heartbeat of God

Listening to the Heartbeat of God

The most life-giving habit of mine is to sit in God’s presence in the morning. You could call it prayer but then you’d have to use the word in the broadest sense of the word. It also includes Bible-reading, some meditation on the Word, listening to the heartbeat of God, and breathing in the Holy Spirit In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice;In the morning I will prepare [a prayer and a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait…
