Bildads second speech, Bildad warns Job not to be angry

Chapter 18 Bildads second speech Bildad warns Job not to be angry v1 Then Bildad, who belonged to the people called Shuhites, replied: v2 Eliphaz and Zophar, you should answer Job! Job, be sensible!

Job is very sad

Chapter 6 Job replies to Eliphaz’s first speech Job is very sad v1 But Job said: v2 I am so sad. My sad feelings seem like a terrible weight. v3 And that weight feels heavier than all the sand at the seaside. So, forgive me if I spoke too soon. v4 I feel as if God shot me with arrows.

Talked to God Lately?

filled-with-the-spirit

Talked to God Lately?We all make time for what we value the most. Have you gotten into the good habit of praying to God on a regular basis? Need some instruction and encouragement? Here it is! How’s your prayer life? Some would answer, “What prayer life? I don’t have a prayer life. I’m too busy!” Yes, we are all quite busy, but is that a legitimate excuse? Several years ago, a good friend of mine passed on a phrase that his father used to tell him: “You make time for…

The Key to Praying Effectively

WhatToPrayTN1

When I pray with my kids, I can tell their minds are somewhere else.  They might have their eyes closed, but talking to God is the very last thing on their minds.  I guess for us adults, some things never change.Years ago I read a quote by Mother Teresa.  When asked what she says when she prays she answered, “I listen”.  When asked what God says, she responded, “He listens”.All too often, I look at prayer only as presenting my requests before God.  After all, that is exactly what He…

The Many Forms of Prayer

Last year I went on a spiritual retreat during Holy Week. It was the first time in years I had set aside time to be still and know God. For four days, I was completely unplugged—no cell phone, no laptop. Except for the two or three short guided group conversations throughout each day, it was just me, my Bible, and my journal.The first day I tried to quiet myself and get my brain into prayer mode. Instead, I fell asleep for several hours and woke up in time for dinner.…

Prayer is our spiritual oxygen, and just as oxygen is vital to our natural life, so prayer is vital to our spiritual life. We need to pray regularly and continually in order to live as God intended.Each of us will face trying circumstances in life. We could never win a war without fighting some battles. We’re going to have trials, but in our trials we can build our faith. We do not have to be moved by the circumstances in our life. When we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus,…

How to Spend an Hour in Prayer

“An hour? How could I pray for an hour? I’d run out of things to say!”Praying for an hour is like sitting down in a restaurant with a friend, rather than ordering a cheeseburger and chocolate shake at the drive-up window. Somehow, as you sip coffee together, you find a lot of things to say. And, it’s a whole lot more satisfying than a wave and a “Hi-how-are-you?”But if talking to God for that long seems intimidating, it’s probably because we’re still learning just to share ourselves with Him as…

Joel: The Day of the Lord. Joel tells us his father’s name, but he says

About this book Joel tells us his father’s name, but he says nothing about himself. Some students think that he wrote his book about 850 years before the birth of Jesus. Other students think that he wrote it about 330 years later than that. The really important thing is that Joel* has a message from God. Joel: Nearly all God’s people have forgotten to love God. And they have forgotten to obey him. So God allows bad things to happen. There is no rain. (Look at Joel* 1:20.) The plants…

The key to a solid relationship with God through prayer

How’s your prayer life? A common thing I hear is that people’s prayer lives aren’t what they want them to be. People find prayer hard for various reasons…. busyness, not knowing what to pray, etc. So, what are the keys to a solid relationship with God through prayer?The book of Psalms has been titled by many as “a book of prayers”. When looking into the Psalms we are looking into a number of relationships with God through prayer. The first Psalm sets the foundation of a fruitful believer who prays.

I Was a Failure at Prayer

Ever since I became a Christian, I’ve worried about praying. Should I pray to God the Father? To Jesus? To the Comforter God sent to advocate for us after Jesus left our world? Should I favor unmistakably sacred topics—gratitude, praise, others’ salvation—over my daily worries and complaints? And how, precisely, does one go about conversing with someone not physically present?Expert advice on prayer abounds. At the Christian university where I teach, chapel speakers promote everything from praying directly from Scripture to “just being quiet and listening.” Orthodox speakers recommend the…

How the Lord’s Prayer can help us pray

Recently in our youth bible study we looked at the Lords’s Prayer. This is a short section in the gospels when Jesus takes his disciples aside and gives them a model of prayer they can follow. What we found as we studied this simple prayer is that it is really comprehensive! It gives a great balance between praising God and placing requests before God. What is the Lord’s Prayer?You’ve probably seen the LORD’s prayer before, but just in case you haven’t, here it is from Matthew 6:9b-13:

How to Train Others: Five Lessons From Jesus

Whether you hire workers for your own business, train co-workers within the context of your current position, or equip others for ministry in your church, you should consider the following lessons from the Master trainer:1. Be real during the interview process.If you are salivating over a prospective employee, don’t succumb to the temptation of sugar coating the job.  When a teacher of religious law asked Jesus if he could follow him, Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens to live in, and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no…

The Power of Prayer

I was recently reading an article in Focus on the Family’s publication Thriving Family called Teach Us to Pray by Ted Cunningham. The write-up was short, but it was talking about the importance of prayer. It outlined some key points about the Lord’s Prayer from Matthew 6:9-13 to help parents teach their children how to pray, but in the process it reminded me of the power and importance of prayer in my own life.Prayer is an obviously essential part of any believer’s spiritual walk, but it’s easy to forget to…

Maybe God Doesn’t Care?

Here’s the thing – sometimes, I have this conviction that God doesn’t care as much as we think He does.(Don’t freak! Hear me out, okay?)Sometimes, I have this sneaking suspicion that, maybe, as Christians, we put an unhealthy amount of emphasis on figuring out “God’s will” for our lives.Sometimes, this emphasis to decode where “God’s leading us” causes us to debate every single decision we make as if it is going to gravely affect the course of our lives.Sometimes, we think if we don’t get it right–if we misinterpret the…

The Evening’s Prayer

The Evening’s Prayer”I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.”-Psalm 16:7God of grace, mercy, truth and righteousness, God of my salvation,In whose hand is my life and whose are all my ways,Keep me from fluttering about religion; fix me firm in it, for I am irresolute;my decisions are smoke and vapor, and I do not glorify thee,or behave according to thy will;Cut me not off before my thoughts grow to responses, and the budding of my soul into full flower,for thou art…

When Does God Answer Prayer?

We receive from him whatever we ask, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him. And this is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us.God answers prayers for people who keep his commandments. His commandments are summed up in these two: 1) believe in the name of Jesus, and 2) love each other.Therefore, God answers prayers for peoplewho believe in his Son andwho love each other.This could mean two things.1.

Prayer and the Ministry of the Word

One of the many temptations confronting the minister of the gospel in this generation is to become involved in unnecessary administrative church work. Once involved, the demands tend to increase, often resulting in a degree of deterioration in the quality of his pulpit ministry. Books which encourage such involvement are pouring from the press, lauding the virtues of scientifically-proven rules, which if followed, are guaranteed to increase the numbers and expand the influence of any church. These usually require the application of the principle that the end justifies the means…

Why Prayer Goes Hand-in-Hand With Worship

Worship is more than singing songs of praise. It is the primary ingredient to prayer. Although it’s popular to make a distinction between a “prayer of worship” and a prayer of petition, a prayer of intercession, or a prayer of confession, I would venture to say to say that all categories of prayer are constrained to worship.Prayer is humble communication to God, and to be in the presence of God is to be aware of His holiness, which leads to worship. There is no one like Him. He is completely…

Does Prayer Make Any Difference?

There is an immense difference between a worldview that is not able to answer every question to complete satisfaction and one whose answers are consistently contradictory. There is an even greater difference between answers that contain paradoxes and those that are systemically irreconcilable.Once again, the Christian faith stands out as unique in this test, both as a system of thought and in the answers it gives. Christianity does not promise that you will have every question fully answered to your satisfaction before you die, but the answers it gives are…

ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH

There are few honest people who, despite the fact they believe they have found the truth, will not admit that they have numerous unanswered questions about life, people, and religion. Throughout my life nagging questions have haunted me about all sorts of things, questions for which I could find no answers in the context of my religious or secular upbringing. These questions I either filed away in my mind hoping I might find answers to them at another time or else completed denied or suppressed them, for to consider them…

A Call To Prayer

I think all Christians would agree that we should be praying for our nation during this critical time in our history. Judicial activists are no longer interpreting the law but attempting to legislate from the bench. By using these activist judges in our courts, the ungodly are systematically attempting to remove all reference to and influence of God in our society. It’s even become politically correct to discriminate against Christians. Christianity is also the only religious influence that can be prohibited by law. We need the intervention of God to…

Prayer Scandals

Mark reminds us in his first chapter that Jesus was a man of prayer: “In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed” (Mark 1:35). This characteristic of our Lord is noted in all the Gospels, especially Luke. Luke records not only this incident, but he also tells his readers that Jesus prayed before his baptism (Luke 3:21) and spent the night in prayer before selecting the Twelve (6:12-16). When Luke notes that Jesus “would withdraw…

Evening Prayer

The Richard I knew and loved was a man of prayer and of liturgy. He knew that the greatest gift we could offer to God was not our words, not our ideas, not our projects, but a heart ablaze with the fire of love. “Honor and glory belong to God alone,” said St. Bernard, “but God will receive neither if they are not sweetened with the honey of love.”Anyone invited to Richard’s home for dinner knew that you were expected to arrive a little before seven, to be in place…

The Heart of Prayer

Recently, reformation21’s own Derek Thomas preached the Sunday evening service at FPC Jackson from Nehemiah 1:11b-2:8. While commenting on Nehemiah’s instinctual prayer in 2:4, Derek proclaimed, “My friends, we need to understand that the only reason Nehemiah has an instinct of prayer in a critical moment is because he had a life of prayer. It is because he was always praying.” Then in applying Nehemiah’s example to our lives, he stated, “You see, if you’re not always praying, if you do not have the pattern of disciplined prayer, you cannot…

What the bible say about Anger?

You cannot control how others act or respond, but you can make changes that need to be made on your part. Overcoming one’s temper is not something that is usually accomplished overnight. But with reliance upon God through prayer for help, Bible study, and reliance upon God’s Holy Spirit, it can be overcome. As one has allowed anger to become entrenched in one’s life by habitual practice, one must also practice responding correctly until it too becomes a habit replacing the old ways. Proverbs 22:24-25 Do not make friends with…

They took prayer & Bible from public schools and now they have shootings!

America was founded upon the Bible and now has forgotten the God of the Bible. Early American schools taught the moral values from the Bible, with school prayer, today’s public school system prohibit teaching moral values from the Bible, or even allowing students to pray to a God that a majority of faiths in this country recognize. The result is America has become a land with much looser morals then four decades ago, which is having a negative affect on all sectors of our society.
