40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 8 – Persevere
It's easy to boast in the glory of God. Not so easy to glory in suffering. Suffering is not fun at all! So, if that is the case, then why in the world would we subject ourselves to something like fasting? Well, I consider- and I bet God does too- that things like perseverance, character and hope are worth a lot more to me than fun.
40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 6 When I Am Weak
I have sensed such an overwhelming sadness today. I personally am not sad about anything for myself, yet I cried. As I prayed about it, I realized that the Lord was letting me feel the weight or gravity of the trials that many people I love are facing. There are people who are suffering from …

40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 4 – Spiritual Food and Drink

40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 3 – Rend Your Heart
Ever since I was little, I knew that fasting was in the Bible. I considered it a powerful tool that the people of God used in their most dire times. As I grew into an adult, I would talk about fasting, telling people that I thought that it was really important to do, but funny …

40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 2 Watch!
There is one thing the disciples did not have at Gesthemane that we have. They did not have the indwelling Holy Spirit. They didn't have access to the power of God in their inner beings to strengthen their "inner man" for the arduous time they were walking in. Those who believe in Jesus have access to the store houses of the Spirit of God, since we are sealed with the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 1:13-14.) We can pray that God will build us up in our inner beings that Jesus will dwell in our hearts through faith. Ephesians 3:16-17 " I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith."

My soul has felt unsettled for years, perhaps even a little disturbed, concerning what I can only describe as bad "weather" approaching. The Pharisees …

Why Do They Call it Good Friday?

God desired to lavish his riches and grace upon us, but it could only come at a great cost. It wouldn't be free. It would cost him everything.
