Praying With Grace
by Ministry Support on January 29th, 2021
Her officials within her are like wolves tearing their prey; they shed blood and kill people to make unjust gain. Her prophets whitewash these deeds for them by false visions and lying divinations. They say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says’—when the Lord has not spoken. The people of the land practice extortion and commit robbery; they oppress the poor and needy and mistreat the foreigner, d...  Read More

Interceding For Others
by Ministry Support on January 27th, 2021
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

Where there is injustice in the world, we are to oppose it. Where ther...  Read More

by Ministry Support on January 25th, 2021
For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish.

Parasitic Relationships
by Ministry Support on December 15th, 2020
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? (2 Corinthians 6:14)  Yesterday, we talked about knowing the difference between a relationship and an assignment. We learned how important it is for relationships to be mutual and reciprocal. Today, I want to go one step further and talk about how some pe...  Read More

Don’t Settle For A Fool
by Ministry Support on December 2nd, 2020
Now the name of the man was Nabal, and the name of his wife Abigail. The woman was clever and beautiful, but the man was surly and mean; he was a Calebite. (1 Samuel 25:3)  In our text, we have recorded a rather fascinating narrative about a woman named Abigail who is married to a man named Nabal. In one sense it seems as if she has so much going on for her. She is described as smart and attractiv...  Read More

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.” – Genesis 12:1  The question presented by the text is not whether God was going to bless Abram. God had already promised him that He would do that. The question is whether Abram was willing to go through and endure the process of faith required to fulfill God’s will.   Abram wou...  Read More

Where Is Your Hope?
by Ministry Support on October 10th, 2020
“But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.” – Psalm 39:7  A pastor friend of mine once told me a story of him visiting one of his church members in the hospital. As he was on the elevator going to visit the member, he and a hospital worker started to make small talk. He speaks and she speaks back.   Out of curiosity, he asks her what she does in the hospital. She says “I am a heart spe...  Read More
