Welcome again to this week's word for the week. This week we're going to go in a different direction as far as how the word for the week is structured. Well over twenty years ago I was going through a struggle that weighed on me constantly. It seemed like the more I prayed the worse things got. I studied the word of God concerning that particular area and nothing seemed to break anything. Yes, I was frustrated and things were starting to get very aggravating.
Someone asked me day what was going on. Without going into a whole lot of detail I gave them the brief overview of things. They asked me have I prayed which I thought was a crazy question. The person knew I prayed daily but I answered and said yes anyhow. They asked me how I ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. Let's get straight to the point this week as it's another one of topics you need to dwell on later. We can pray that God will give us the desires of our hearts. We can pray for an expected end. We can pray that we see the hand of God in our circumstance. The one thing we need to realize it that God may work in various ways to get us there. More than often, that's the part that confuses us.
Let's take a quick reflection on Moses. God used him in various ways and at various times. At one point he threw down a rod and it became a serpent. He later picked up that same serpent and it became a rod again. In some ways that can be viewed as God working in a pattern. However, we ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. Well, let's get straight to the point this week. I was sitting here meditating and the Lord spoke something simple but powerful. God lays out the plans for our life. He knows the thoughts that He thinks towards us and the ultimate purpose is to bring us the things He has promised. However, we have to want what He has in store for us. Now it's easy to say things will be easy but give this some thought first.
God doesn't force anything upon us. He waits for us to get in line for what He has in store. That means that there may be promises that are waiting on you and not a matter of you waiting on the promises. So often we're quick to say we're waiting on the Lord but what...

Welcome to our online Bible study. My goal here tonight is to give you the scriptures along with some points for you to consider. As always, please take some time to pray first and ask God to clear your hearts and minds from whatever you may have dealt with today so that you can focus on what we will talking about here. Also, get your Bible close by because you will need it.
Alright, here we go. Tonight's lesson will not be long but it will require a tremendous amount of thought and honesty from you. You will clearly know for yourself rather you have done so and it will make a serious difference in your own life. Without further delay let's get started here.

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. As Christians, it is often assumed we have everything together in our lives. We are supposed to have faith, trust in the Lord, and be willing for whatever His will is for our lives. When we are around others it is hard to gauge the real struggles with those areas and others. Again, we are assumed to have many thing together and the expectation is that we don't struggle with what is considered basic things about our salvation.
Here lies a quiet and hidden problem. Moving forward is not always easy. I've been amazed to discover that there are many people not as excited about new things as I may have previously thought. This is not a bad thing but rather an honest thing. We go ...
