The Heavy Burden We can no longer remain as the people that we were before Christ, the moment we accepted Him as our Lord and Savior. That is because that person is weighed down by the damaged caused by our sin. They are like a sprinter trying to win a race wearing ankle weights, wrist … Continue reading Throw Out Spiritual Garbage
I have seen the Dream He has given, The Vision of the Lord He has revealed to me. To grasp His Destiny for me, I must change, I need to transform to grab onto my Calling. I can no longer live for myself, The focus of life can't be about me. Such a life leaves … Continue reading Following God’s Vision
Have you ever heard of the phrase, "Nothing is as it seems"? That is because our eyes can only see in the hear in the now. In John 2o, we discover that faith does not come from seeing, but originates from something else.
Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. Isaiah 59:1-2 (King James Version) Why does it seem that when we pray … Continue reading Why Is God Silent At Times?
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes. Psalm 119:11-12 (King James Version) All of us, at one time or another, have stumbled in our faith walk and yielded to temptation. It was after one of those stumbles that … Continue reading The Strength to Resist Sin
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. Psalm 103:2 (King James Version) Have you ever wondered why church services begin with singing songs about how great God is? I would think that the preacher's sermon on the Bible would be the only thing that should be presented in church, since … Continue reading Why Do We Sing Songs?
When I am in your strong hand, I find rest, In the mighty hands of God, I have peace. Let my strength be the Lord's, May the work I do be fueled by His might. I will look at the job before and not fear, I won't despair over the task laid before me. For … Continue reading Having God’s Power
Jesus tells us that He is the true Vine, but what does this mean? If He is the vine, what is my role with the vine? In this reading from John 15, we will read what this looks being part of the True Vine, Jesus Christ.
When the days become dark and worrisome,
When evil shades every aspect of my life.
I will turn to the Lord my God,
To my Savior will I seek deliverance.
For in the King of Kings do I find rest,
In the Lord of Lords will I find peace of mind.
With this peace I have hope for the day,
The day does not look bleak when in His grace.
So daily I will find nourishment in the Almighty,
Everyday will my sustenance be in My Lord and Savior.
For in Him, I find true peace that soothes,
I discover pure rest in the presence of my God.
Knowing the ways of God is not something that can be rushed. If we attempt to speed through our reading of His Word or rush through our dialogue with Him, we may miss the things that would be essential to our faith. Furthermore, God wants us to have relationship with Him; He can’t do that if we do not give Him a chance to speak because we are in a hurry.
A good relationship requires time, patience, and communication. This is possible only if we slow down our life pace. Besides slowing down would be good for us. After all that running around, it could be really easy for someone to burnout from exhaustion; which is what God does not want us to do.
So the next time, you have fellowship with the Lord, don’t look at the clock. Just relax and enjoy the quality time that you are having with the King of Kings. When you do this, an amazing thing happens. Your soul will be made whole and you will have energy that you never thought that you had. That is what it is like to walk with the Lord.

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23: 4
What is the difference between walking and running? I am sure we can all answer that. Walking is motion at a slower pace and running is motion at a quicker pace. When you run, you get to your destination faster than one who walked.
Well, we are not running in this psalm, we are walking.
Walking gives us time to look around, to notice our environment and the scenery that surrounds us. Walking is not as tiring as running. Some of us love to get things over with quickly, and so we would prefer to run than to walk. The journey of life however cannot be run through continuously. There would be…
