Are you suffering right now for Jesus? If so, then you are in great company! It’s no surprise for Christians to go through terrible troubles and trials. We should expect them and prepare for them. When we do, we can know that Jesus is worth it!

Subtle Suffering

Subtle Suffering

  You may never be called upon to suffer physically because you are a believer in Jesus Christ. However, there is more to suffering than physical pain; there is more to persecution than being put in chains. If we are followers of Jesus Christ, who are not compromising with the sinful ways of the world,

Prayer was as natural as breathing for our Lord, and it should be the same for us. If prayer is an integral part of our lives, when a crisis comes we have already prepared those lines of communication.

The Place of Prayer in Suffering

  When we look for the supreme model of a person devoted to prayer, we need only to look at the life of our Lord. Jesus was constantly in an attitude of prayer, and never more urgently than in the face of suffering. The night He was arrested, He was praying in the Garden of

If you’re in a personal armageddon, you are not alone. The Lord is with you and as brothers and sisters in Christ, we are in this together. Let’s join together in prayer for one another and lift our voices in praise to God knowing that we can’t, but He can.

Personal Armageddons

  Suffering Is Universal We don’t deliberately look for trouble in life. It comes. Suffering is a universal fact; no one can escape its claws. The rain falls upon the just and the unjust. We all face personal armageddons. Some people have the mistaken idea that becoming a Christian will be a shelter from the

Everything belongs to God. Everything. Whatever we have is just on loan to us! Let’s hold things and people lightly and be grateful and generous with what has been entrusted to us.

God Owns It All

  The earth is the LORD’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein. — Psalm 24:1 Consider for a moment your possessions. Actually, we can possess nothing — no property and no person — along the way. It is God who owns everything, and we are but stewards of His property

Don’t forget we have an enemy! Rather than being afraid of him, we can put him in his proper place… subject to Christ Jesus. When we are submitted to Jesus, when He is our all in all, when we pray in His name, the devil will battle us, yes, but he has to shrink away.

Don’t Doubt the Devil

  The God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. — Romans 16:20 Who is responsible for the infamy, terror, and agony that we see all around us? How can we account for the sufferings that we all experience if evil is not a potent force? Education has, in truth, impeded our minds.

We don’t have to stay fearful and unprepared. The Lord intends for us to mature, to grow, and to become secure and ready for what’s ahead of us standing solid on the Rock.

Growing Strong

  His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us. — 2 Peter 1:3 How can we develop a faith strong enough to see us throughout our lives? The key is this: God wants us to be spiritually strong and has

Thanksgiving and the Path to Peace

  Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds. James 1:2 NIV God promises no easy life or days without troubles, trials, difficulties, and temptations. He never promises that life will be perfect. He does not call His children to a playground, but to a battleground. Some people have a

What to Do in Despair or Fear

What to Do in Despair or Fear

Deflect Despair [God] gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. — 1 Corinthians 15:57 NIV There is a story about Martin Luther going through a period of discouragement and depression. For days his long face graced the family table and dampened the family’s home life. One day his wife came to the breakfast

Joy to the world

Heaven and Earth Rejoice

Imagine the scene in Bethlehem. It was the night of nights, and yet it had begun as every other night had before it. In Bethlehem’s houses mothers lay their children down to sleep. In the courtyards of the inn some camels lay down to rest. In the fields the sheep lay down while the shepherds sat near their fires. In the heavens
