Your spirit will be lif...

“Be very careful, then, how you live— not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.” - Ephesians 5:15-16 Do you have promises that you are waiting on God to deliver? Do you have hopes and dreams that you know God will fulfill—it is just a matter of time? This can be a very exciting feeling, being able to claim the promises of God and knowing that He w...

“Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.” - Proverbs 14:29 When it comes to trusting God, we must learn to be patient. This is often why God will not give us what we want when we want it. God’s primary concern is growing and molding us to be more like Jesus. This doesn’t mean that God does not want to give us the desires of our heart, because He d...

The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance. (Acts 12:6) As we’ve discussed over the last couple of days, I believe Peter was able to sleep while on death row because he realized the importance of prayer; but I also think he was able to sleep because he had given up ownership of his probl...
The Influence Of The Holy Spirit
by Ministry Support on January 7th, 2021
Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. (Ephesians 5:11-13) As much as you want to be in control of your life, there comes a time when you have to give up control and yield to a higher pow...
