Prayer Is Essential

Prayer Is Essential

Ephesians 6:10-18 Paul presents prayer as a weapon against the battles of evil in the realm of spiritual warfare. Paul knows that prayer is a necessity for those who would receive divine power. Paul gives us some clues on prayer. First, prayer is powerful. Second, Paul connects prayer directly to the armor of God. Paul […]

HALT

HALT

As soon as I sent a text message from my phone, I realized “Oops, I should have responded differently.” How often have you had a conversation with someone or replied to a text message and then later wanted to take back what you said?  In today’s quickly paced society it so easy to make snap […]

There is Always Hope

There is Always Hope

Isaiah 40:31, Jeremiah 29:11 Hope is defined as “a feeling that what is wanted is likely to happen; desire accompanied by expectations.” We use the word hope on a regular basis; “I hope it doesn’t rain today.” “I hope my team wins.” But, what happens when what we hope for doesn’t occur? Most of the […]

Get Suited Up

Get Suited Up

Ephesians 6:10-18 Have you ever noticed when we or someone we know puts on a uniform or dresses up for an event, how that can change our attitude, make us feel more confident about ourselves or simply just make us feel better? You can see that when some kids put on sports uniforms they get […]

Dear Heavenly Father, As children transition back to school this week, we pray they would have a will to learn and a desire to do their best. Help our children to obey the rules. May their classrooms be safe and welcoming environments so they feel at ease, but at the same time are willing to […]

Waiting

Waiting

Galatians 6:7-10 I’m sure we have all said or heard, “Wow that was perfect timing.” I have found myself saying this often lately, with the last time being last week. I had a lunch date with a friend at a restaurant I had only been in once before. I was running late and I couldn’t […]

Get Equipped

Get Equipped

Ephesians 6:10-18 When your opposition starts fighting your efforts, it’s best to be familiar with what tactics they might use. In our scripture today, Paul gives us an over view of this. We cannot know and defeat the strategies of the devil, in light of the Gospel, if we do not study God’s strategies for […]

Stronger Than You Know

Stronger Than You Know

Recently, the stress in my life has seemed to be never ending. You know the saying, “When it rains, it pours”? It felt as though the stressors were “pouring” into my life and I was beginning to drown. While driving one day, I thought, “What am I going to do? I can’t take this anymore.” […]

Optimism

Optimism

John 14:27 Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a theologian, martyr, spiritual writer and pastor, once said, “The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned; it enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself […]
