Good father?

Would a good father purposely lead his children to difficult places or to enemy territory? Before you answer, notice what one of Jesus’ friends wrote, “Then Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil.” (Matthew 4:1, NIV). Why would God lead His Beloved Son into the desert?...

The mystery of prayer

Mystery of Prayer Prayer is mysterious to me. I don’t understand the fact that whenever I open my mouth to talk to the Living God He is “all ears” not just to hear me but to answer me! He says in Isaiah 66:24 that, “Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking...

Living without worry

Living Without Worry I heard about an exasperated husband who asked his wife, “Why are you always worrying when it doesn’t do any good?” She quickly piped back, “Oh yes it does!

Living with purpose

Living With Purpose As I read through 1 Corinthians 9 the other day, these words caught my attention: “Therefore, I do not run like a man running aimlessly.” (1 Corinthians 9:26, NIV). I was reminded of this simple but very important truth: activity does not always equal productivity; just as movement does not always amount...

How can we pray with you?

How Can I Pray For You? Though he was a senior military officer with several soldiers under his command and was considered tough by those who knew him, he humbled himself before Jesus and sought His help on behalf of his sick servant. This story of the Roman centurion recorded in Matthew 8:5-13 is an...

Teach us to pray

If you’re like me you are probably dissatisfied with your prayer life and feel guilty about it also. So many of us struggle in our lives and long for our prayers to be more than just a religious act. It’s not that we don’t pray at all as much as it is we don’t experience...
