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…

God’s Wings

God’s Wings

Psalm 91:4 He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. This scripture, when examined deeply is so full of encouragement. He promises to put a hedge or fence about us. To shut us in. To overshadow us. The word “wings” here means “the uttermost part of a garment, a hem, fringe, edge, border of a skirt or shirt.” When the lady touched the hem of Jesus’…

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit

Isaiah 44:3 (God said) “For I will pour out water on the thirsty land and streams on the dry ground. I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring, and My blessing on your descendants;” For those who are willing to admit our thirst for God and His ways, God is ready and able to meet our need. God’s Spirit, the Holy Spirit, is there waiting for us who are willing to ask for Him. God’s Spirit infuses us with…

The Valley of the Shadow

The Valley of the Shadow

Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me. There is a deep gorge in Israel between Jerusalem and Jericho called the Valley of the Shadow of Death. The sun only shines there when it’s directly overhead. Shepherds even today, move their flocks through that valley when they guide their sheep to green pasture. When David, who wrote…

Heavy Burdens

Heavy Burdens

Proverbs 16:3 Commit your works to the Lord, and your plans will be established. That word “commit” has an interesting meaning. It means “to roll.” I see us with a heavy load on our backs. Until we pray and commit that burden to the Lord, we struggle under the weight of it. We are not built to carry it. Then we invite Jesus to enter the situation. He comes alongside us. As we pray, we roll the burden off onto…

Our Heritage in God

Our Heritage in God

Isaiah 54:17 (The Lord said) “No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord. Satan is known as the accuser of the brethren (believers). (Revelation 12:10). Take heart. A day is coming when believers will receive our inheritance as God’s children. On that day we will sit in judgment of…

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…

God’s Book of Rememberance

God’s Book of Rememberance

Malachi 3:17 “And they will be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts, “on that day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” In the scripture just before this in Malachi 3:16, God tells us He has a book of remembrance of everyone who fears Him (holds Him in awe) and who esteems His name. That means to hold His name in high regard. Those will be…

Myth vs Truth

Myth vs Truth

In the Bible God tells us, “You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you” (Deuteronomy 4:2). In case we miss it, He tells us again in Deuteronomy 12:32, “Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take away from it.” In His final instructions in Revelation, He makes…

God’s Throne

God’s Throne

Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need. God offers and has provided the way for us to be saved through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross for our sake. Therefore, we can come into His throne room with boldness and assurance and openly present our petitions of need before Him (Hebrews 4:16). He loves us. He is merciful. He…
