My Prayer for Today

Without God as your leader in life; the pitfalls, infirmities and e.g., will all be very harmful and painful, because your solutions will always end in disaster. With the Lord, no matter what life throws your way, God will always supply you with the solution, because He has already gone ahead in your battle and make your enemies His footstool. All battles and  problems will already been conquered. All you have to do is show up. I pray that Christian's will adhere to this prayer of God's unforeseen promises in your life's. To those that are not God's children--the secular--choose you this day God the Father of us all to get all of His promises. First though, you must be saved by the blood of Jesus to get a prayer through. In God's Son name I pray. Amen.

Morning and Evening

Morning, January 30      Go To Evening Reading

         “When thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, then thou shalt bestir thyself.” 
         — 2 Samuel 5:24

The members of Christ’s Church should be very prayerful, always seeking the unction of the Holy One to rest upon their hearts, that the kingdom of Christ may come, and that his “will be done on earth, even as it is in heaven;” but there are times when God seems especially to favour Zion, such seasons ought to be to them like “the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees.” We ought then to be doubly prayerful, doubly earnest, wrestling more at the throne than we have been wont to do. Action should then be prompt and vigorous. The tide is flowing—now let us pull manfully for the shore. O for Pentecostal outpourings and Pentecostal [labors]  Christian, in yourself there are times “when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees.” You have a peculiar power in prayer; th…

Difficult Definitions

January 30: Difficult Definitions
Hebrews 11

As an editor, I love definitions. The field of lexicography can be complex, but when a definition is finally solidified, there’s comfort to be found. It becomes something stable. This is also the reason I love the book of Hebrews: the author is keen on definitions, clarifying terminology, and using analogies to prove his points.
“Now faith is the realization of what is hoped for, the proof of things not seen” (Heb 11:1). In this succinct definition, I have perspective on the essence of faith. There is no room for doubt or error. The hope referred to is Jesus. And the proof is in an assurance that even though we cannot see Him, we have confidence in His work both presently and in the future.
The author goes on to say, “For by this [faith] the people of old were approved [by God]. By faith we understand the worlds were created by the word of God, in order that what is seen did not come into existence from what is visible.… By faith Abraham, whe…
