How to Pray Scripture

How to Pray Scripture

  On the National Day of Prayer in the first part of May, as I drove I heard someone on the radio praying for the nation from II Chronicles 7:14 which says, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.” As I drove, I quoted the scripture with the speaker and was…

When in High Waves

When in High Waves

Matthew 14:27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them saying, “Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.” Jesus directed His disciples to row across the Sea of Galilee at sundown while He stayed behind to pray. After they had rowed for many hours in contrary winds they were worn ragged. Between three and six in the morning, they saw something coming toward them and were terrified. They thought it was a ghost. Jesus called to them to take courage;…

Judgment Day

Judgment Day

I Timothy 2:4 (God) who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. God desires all humans to be preserved from danger, injury, and peril. He wants to keep us safe and sound, and restore us to health. That’s what saving means. He wants everyone to enjoy Him and His is protective care. He wants to deliver us from His final judgment. Some people doubt there is a real judgment day. Jesus talked…

Jesus Power

Jesus Power

Matthew 9:6 (Jesus said) “But in order that you may know that the son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—then He said to the paralytic—“Rise, take up your bed, and go home.” The religious leaders of the day scoffed at Jesus when he told a paralytic his sins were forgiven. Jesus knew their unspoken evil thoughts against Him. He asked those leaders which was easier to say, “Your sins are forgiven,” or to say, “Get up and…

God’s Child

God’s Child

Colossians 1:13 For He delivered us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son. Before Jesus, we were under the power of Satan. We were bound to submit to his authority over us—whether we wanted to or not. When Jesus arose from His grave, it was the undeniable evidence that He defeated sin and death for all time. He extended this mercy to any who would yield their life to Him. When we…

God’s Gift

God’s Gift

I Peter 2:24 And He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness, for by His wounds you were healed. Jesus took the punishment for our wrongdoing that we might share in the inheritance of God. That we might walk blameless before Him. That we might be healed of the infirmities we experience in our bodies—our mind, soul and spirit. He came to heal that which is…

Jesus, Our Need-Meeter

Jesus, Our Need-Meeter

Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds. In the Greek, this scripture not only refers to the healing of individuals. It also includes healing of nations and involves restored favor. Do you know any person or nation that is brokenhearted (is a wreck; is crushed or ruptured)? Some come to mind immediately. They need more than a bandage and a couple of aspirin. They need a major overhaul. No amount of human effort is going to…

Don’t be Afraid

Don’t be Afraid

Mark 5:36 But Jesus, overhearing what was being spoken, said to the synagogue official, “Do not be afraid any longer, only believe.” A synagogue official sought Jesus for healing. His daughter lay dying. On the way to the official’s house, a messenger arrived with the awful news. “Your daughter has died. Why trouble the Teacher anymore?” (Mark 5:35) Jesus turns to the father and says the scripture for today. The word “afraid” here is , “to put to flight by…

Need Help?

Need Help?

Hebrews 13:6 . . . so that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What shall men do to me?” When we lose sight of the fact that we are the Lord’s and He is ours, we tend to become afraid. We think we have to provide for our need or our protection. We have the mistaken idea we will suffer lack, or that someone may do us harm. We tell ourselves we have…

God’s Prescription for Healing

God’s Prescription for Healing

With Ebola banging on our door it might be a wise thing to search God’s word, the Bible, for His prescription for our healing. He has a prescription for all our needs whether it be physical, mental, or emotional healing. Here is a page from my new book Looking Deeper. Exodus 15:26 And He said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear…
