The power of prayer
God has given us a powerful weapon of communication, the power of prayer. It is free. The communication line is opened 24/7. You will not get any business signal, voice recorder, line is down, no signal etc. We have access to God's throne daily to make our request, give thanks and pour out out hearts in sincerity to our creator. Calls to heaven are answered instantly. We may have immediate, medium term, long term responses and even no is an answer. When you left your house this morning did you think to prayer? Prayer can change the night to day, so, don't forget to pray.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Jesus Christ Is The Sacrificial Lamb Of God
Jesus did for us what we could not do for ourselves. He gave his life freely to set us free from sin. He left all he shared with God the father, emptied and humbled himself, took on human flesh, suffered and died for our sins. He was God's final sacrifice for the sins of the world. O Lamb of God, sweet Lamb of God, Jesus Christ the sacrificial Lamb of God.
29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. 31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. 32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. 34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
No matter what kind of trouble or challenge we face right now, victory can be ours through Christ. God is all powerful and He is more than enough for any trouble or circumstance.
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
There are all sorts of people in this world. There are those who are positive, negative, divisive, encouragers and discouragers. There are those who have an infectious laugh, words of encouragement, and an affectionate smile that pulls others to them. Let us be encouragers in this life.
A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
A glad heart makes a cheerful face, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is crushed.
