Keep Trusting by Karen Harding. 1 4/5 (1)

One of my favorite hymns is “Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus.” I want to encourage someone today to keep trusting. Turn it over to Jesus. It is so hard, when we are going through something, to relinquish control. The thing is, when we let go, He takes over. I’d rather let Jesus work it out. He knows a lot more than I do. He knows what’s best for me.

Get into His Word. Trust him. Jeremiah 32:27 says, “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?” The answer is no! Lord, there is nothing too hard for You.”

I trust Him. He has never failed me. He will never fail you either. His Word declares, “And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him” (Psalm 37:40). He is waiting for us to let Him help. Psalms 121:1-2 reminds us to do this: “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.”

We don’t have to know how He will do it; we just need to trust that He will. He will give us peace. He will answer our prayers. He still heals. He is still our provider. He is still a way maker. He is everything we need. Don’t stay up all night worrying about things. Let Him stay up and handle it. Let Him work it out. Stop fretting and start trusting. God’s got this. Can somebody say amen?

Shut and Locked by Mary Loudermilk. 1 4/5 (1)

“On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, ‘Peace be with you.’” (John 20:19, ESV)
Life has taken some unusual twists and turns for all of us in recent days. Our minds are filled with questions as we try to understand how things could have changed so rapidly. Our schedules are altered (or canceled) and social interactions are limited. New phrases mix into our conversations as we talk about “sheltering in place” and “social distancing.” Many of us had never heard of coronavirus until it crashed into our comfortable world a few weeks ago. Now uncertainty surrounds us. We are limited in what we can do and where we can go.

This week while thinking of various friends now facing difficult situations, I realized I cannot be there in person for them. One friend lost a family member. Another is currently in a rehab facility with no visitors allowed. Still another is a shut-in with health issues. A fourth is out of the country and alone. Because of current restrictions, I am limited to calls, texts, and email messages. As I prayed for each one, I realized how limited I am in what I can do. But then God reminded me that while I have limitations, He does not.

John 20:19 is part of a passage of scripture relating events following Jesus’ resurrection. Suddenly, life as the disciples knew it no longer existed. For over three years they had walked and talked with Jesus. Their hearts were stirred as they heard His teachings and saw Him perform the miraculous. Now? Now they were hiding, locked in with their fears and uncertainty. Where should they go? What should they do?

Then Jesus stepped into the locked room.

“Peace be with you.” Yes, peace was exactly what His disciples needed. His presence in their midst and the words He spoke allowed them to look to the future. This moment in time was not the end. It was the beginning of something even greater than what they had previously known.

As I meditated and prayed that evening, God reminded me of some things.

Walls cannot lock Him in or keep Him out.
Borders do not restrict His movement.
Viruses do not cause Him to fear.
Regulations do not limit Him from coming near us.

God has no limitations on what He can do. I may not understand how He will use this current situation for His glory, but I don’t have to understand. All I need to do is trust.

When the children of Israel left Egypt on their journey to the Promised Land, they found themselves in a difficult place. The sea was behind them and a wilderness lay ahead. At that point, they saw very little to encourage them. But God had a plan to draw Pharaoh and his army into position so He could destroy them. God’s reality was very different from the people’s perception.

“For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, ‘They are bewildered by the land; the wilderness has closed them in’” (Exodus 14:3, NKJV).

It may look like we are bewildered by current circumstances and that we are shut in by a wilderness, but in reality, God will use the things happening in our lives for our good and His glory. I cannot be with my friends during these difficult times, but God will be. He has promised to never leave us or forsake us. Nothing is impossible when He steps into the room.

Don’t put limitations on God’s power. He has none.

Locking Down and Locking Arms! 1 5/5 (1)

Keep Praying. While some of us are locking down, all of us should be locking arms…in the spirit of prayer! Your continual prayers are making a difference in our world. The masses are devastated by the Coronavirus pandemic, but there is hope…because there is a God who cares and has all power in His hands!

Let’s continue to pray for God’s divine healing to manifest in our world, and join with us in fervently praying and observing the following scripture, as we have faith and trust in God.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (II Chronicles 7:14, KJV).

A Focus on God’s Attributes. 1 4/5 (1)

I’ve always been able to hold up my end of a conversation without difficulty. Except, that is, when it came to prayer, and particularly when I tried to express my praise to God. Attempting to begin and end my prayer times with praise and adoration, I often found myself flat-out speechless. I wanted to praise God with all that was within me, but I couldn’t think of one sensible thing to say. I recently read a book called Invading the Privacy of Godby Cecil “Cec”Murphey. The book describes how Cec’s prayer life was revolutionized when he settled on the practice of praying God’s attributes as praise. I began imitating that practice in my own times of praise, and over the course of a few months, I developed a “program of praise” that has proven wonderfully helpful. It has opened a door for me, and my praises to God now flow freely from my heart and lips during prayer. I focus on one attribute of my awesome God and Father each day, using the Scripture-based sentencesas “praise starters.” At the end of each month, I start the list over, combining traits when the month is shorter than 31 days.

A Passion To Pray by Tim Massengale 1 5/5 (1)

In the opinion of many, of the many spiritual disciplines nothing is more important than prayer. Nothing will quite impact our spiritual development like a well-developed prayer life. However, prayer has sadly become one of the most neglected of disciplines in our hurried lives. If you hunger for a closer walk with God, the following six points will help you to develop your prayer life in a more meaningful way.

The importance of prayer. With God, everything revolves around relationship. God desires you to know Him, to love Him, and to make Him the number one priority of your life. While He desires our service, it falls a distant second to relationship.

In Luke 10:38 we read of Jesus in the home of Mary and Martha. Martha was focused on service, taking care of her guests. In contrast, Mary sat at the feet of Jesus and drank in the words that Jesus spoke. Martha complained that Mary was not helping. Jesus told her that Mary “hath chosen that good part” and that Martha should not be so “careful and troubled about many things.”

Covering Our Pastor’s Wives. 1 5/5 (1)

While working at my desk the other day, I heard my husband encouraging a pastor over the phone. His wife was being attacked by someone she had been trying to give words of strength and direction to. Because they both felt God had impressed them to do so, they could not understand why it was received in such a negative way. The pastor’s wife was devastated! This instance brought the realization that our pastor’s wives are often being attacked. I feel led to pray for pastor’s wives to not grow weary in well-doing. Will you join me this week in praying not only for your pastor’s wife, but for all pastor’s wives across our fellowship?

Pray:
Our pastor’s wives will continue as servants in God’s kingdom
God’s protection upon their hearts and minds
For them to hear the voice of God and not be afraid to share it with others
For fresh anointing upon our pastor’s wives
They will have a passion to reach the lost
Our pastor’s wives would have a hunger for spiritual gifts
For saints to be kind to the pastor’s wife

God forbid… 1 5/5 (1)

For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)

God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?
For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?
And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.

What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:
Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

Their feet are swift to shed blood:
Destruction and misery are in their ways:
And the way of peace have they not known:

There is no fear of God before their eyes.
Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God…
(From: Romans 3:3-23 KJV)

My Covering by Pam Dobbs. 1 4/5 (1)

There is something about human nature that does not like the falling rain or any element of nature to forcefully pound down upon us. However, if we venture out into a rainstorm, hail, or snow without something to protect us, within seconds we become soaked from the chilling element falling from the heavens. We understand that if we want to avoid becoming saturated with the falling rain, we must take advantage of some type of protection. and dances on my last nerve like being ignored.

February 10 is recognized around the world as National Umbrella Day. Umbrellas and parasols are primarily handheld portable devices designed for covering. Isn’t it amazing that such a common item has received worldwide recognition? Yet, this simple covering affords protection for millions of people. When walking out into the forceful rains, the key to staying dry is to remain under the protection of an umbrella. We find shelter from harsh weather conditions. By stepping out from under its protection, we open ourselves to the environment around us.

As a Holy Ghost filled child of God, I understand spiritual downpours will come. Each day I choose to place myself under His ultimate umbrella of protection. I choose to walk through this life hand in hand with God. From beneath the umbrella of His safety, I am honoring His authority and obeying His Word, while reaching out to the lost and dying.

I am reminded of the words of Psalm 23:6: “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.” Let us lift up our heads from the storms of this present world and focus on Jesus as we dwell in the house of the Lord. While we walk close with Him under the protection of His umbrella, we declare to the elements around us, He is “my covering.”
