Established by The Lord

The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. Proverbs 16:9 The Lord says, “I’ve got this! Remember Jacob? He thought his son, Joseph was dead, but he wasn’t. Jacob didn’t know My plans for his son; so he believed the lie. It’s so easy to believe the lie when your physical senses are all you are using. But when you truly know that I am in control, you will find your hope in Me.” Jacob was looking at a robe dipped in blood and reading a message from his other sons that left him to conclude the worst. He may have even felt responsible. Earlier, he had told Joseph to go and find his brothers and see how they and the flocks were getting along. But since his brothers hated h

Forgiveness

Make allowance for each other’s faults, and Forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, The Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Colossians 3:13 Jesus tells a parable in Matthew 18 about a king who decided to collect on all the debts owed him. One of the debtors who owed millions was called in and ordered to pay up. When he couldn’t pay, he was to be sold, him and his family. The man fell down and begged the king to give him more time and the king took pity on him and forgave him the entire debt. What an incredible story. But it doesn’t end there. The man who had just been forgiven millions didn’t get it. He also was owed money. He went a found the person and demanded payment. When th

Discerning the Enemy

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test The spirits to see whether they are from God… 1 John 4:1 Nehemiah had a physical enemy that was trying to destroy him much like we have an enemy in the spiritual realm that is trying to destroy us. I think we can learn from Nehemiah how to deal with our enemy. Our enemy is Satan and his minions. First we must accept our enemy is as real as Nehemiah’s enemy was and his plans are to destroy us. Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem the Arab, and the rest of Israel’s enemies had found out that the wall had been completed and just the gates still had to be built. So they sent word they wanted to meet with Nehemiah. But Nehemiah discerned that they wanted t

Household Salvation

Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household. Acts 16:31 There is so much about having a prodigal that we have no control over. It is important to leave them in God’s hands and focus on what we do have control over—our prayers. The enemy can lie to us and tell us it’s not working or it’s not worth the effort or it’s too depressing, but he can’t stop us from praying. Our prodigals can do the opposite of what we would like them to do, but they can’t stop us from praying. Some of you have your prodigal living with you and it causes great heartache, some of you are totally estranged from you prodigal and it causes great heartache, some of you have to watch from afar as
