Do you question that you have enough faith when you pray? Listen to these words from Jesus to His followers: “The apostles said to the Lord, ‘Increase our faith!’ He replied, ‘If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, “Be uprooted and planted in the sea,” and it will obey you’” (Luke 17:5-6).
Listen to me, my friends. There is absolutely no reason why you can’t become powerful in prayer. The Lord has given every one of us a measure of faith. Take that faith and apply it when you pray. You’ll see—the Lord will not only hear your prayer. He will answer!
Would you agree that patience seems to be lacking in our society these days? So how can I become a more patient person—at home, at work, among friends, and even while I'm driving? Willpower alone can produce some level of patience, but our Creator made provision for us to be patient at those moments when willpower falls short.
On November 8, 2022, national, state, and local elections will chart the direction of our nation for years to come, and the Democratic and Republican parties’ platforms point to very different directions. Determine that you will become as informed as possible about the issues and will pray for God’s guidance as you exercise your right and privilege to vote.
Distractions can negatively affect our lives and keep us off balance. Untold numbers of people, Christians included, go through life controlled by distractions—texts, emails, meetings, phone calls, errands, and surfing the internet. They bounce frantically from one activity to the next. Their goals and priorities take a backseat to an artificial tyranny of the urgent. Everything seems important. Ironically, they find enough time for distractions, but not enough time to restore their life’s equilibrium with a few minutes reading God’s Word and praying.
Until Jesus returns, the Resurrection stands as the central event in all human history. If you open your heart and mind to its truth, you can view life through the lens of God’s truth, grace, power, and love. Your Resurrection perspective will wonderfully shape everything about your life.
