What Should We Expect?

As we learn to praise the Lord for everything, what should we expect? Most of us expect quick results. If there are no quick benefits, our short attention spans will sometimes cause us to move on to something else.  Therefore, many people do not learn how the power of praise can bring undeniably miraculous results. I have seen many occasions …

Is it True?

By Mary Carothers Is the Bible true? Can we really depend on it? The psalmist wrote in Psalm 119:105 that God’s Word was a lamp for his feet and a light for his pathway. When this Psalm was composed, parts of the New Testament were yet to be written. People of that day did not have as full a revelation …

Omnipotent!

Martha, Martha, the Lord answered, you are worried and upset about many things (Luke 10:41) Understanding the word “omnipotent” is important to us – exceedingly so! The Creator of our vast universe is all powerful. He is able to do anything He wants to do. Puny, human minds think of our Creator as limited in power. How ridiculous! It’s unreasonable …

Perseverance

By Mary Carothers One night long ago, near the little town of Bethlehem, shepherds were in the field, watching over their sheep. There is no evidence that it was any different from other nights. Perhaps they had a small fire and were sitting around it. Some might have been dozing, while others were alert, listening for sounds from the sheep …

Identity

By Mary Carothers I remember visiting a church when I heard this song. The words went something like this: Jesus is my Security Jesus is my Identity Jesus is my Everything. How the Father longs for these words to be a reality in the hearts and lives of His blood-bought children. To feel that our security rests in our finances, …

Blessings Not Curses

The following principle may be a little difficult to understand, but once understood it can release us from a multitude of burdens. Remember the old song, “Take your burdens to the Lord and leave them there”? Much of the time our “burden” is someone with whom we are associated. We want God to change that person, to make him “fit …
