Faith Child – Because He lives we can trust Him

glassJesusLives

His son was growing up and would begin primary school the next year. It was February and the school registration would be in the next few months before  the start of the new school year next January.

As a music teacher, he did not earn much to afford  a home that would be near to any school. However, he knew he could trust the Lord to provide a good school for his son and to have a home conveniently located so commuting time to and from school would not deprive his son much needed sleep in the morning and again for extra curricular activities in the afternoons.

As a family we laid it out to the Lord in prayer and if we did not believe in God we would have panicked. For several months  after committing the need for  school and home to the Lord, there was nothing – Silence!

One Sunday afternoon in May,  the Lord unexpectedly  brought a newspaper advertisement to my attention. It was for a cosy apartment located opposite a primary school. Unbeknown to me, that location had been the desire of my brother’s heart and he had secretly asked the Lord for it.

I called to view the apartment at 6pm. The lady owner had waited  for “the one” to buy the apartment from her that day.  She was in a hurry to return to China and to her husband. Her plane ticket was booked to take her home, leaving Singapore at 11pm that night.  Only one well known local actor viewed the apartment and it seemed her wish would not be granted.

The apartment fitted to a T for my brother and  all that was required, was to agree on the price.

Excuse me? she quoted a price $40k more than we budgeted. All family members were disappointed and were about to give up. I reasoned, if the Lord wanted my brother to purchase the apartment He would give us the apartment at the price budgeted. I said I would at least ask. Continue reading

As I pray everyday for all the abused, all the sick, and all the wounded around the world, I had felt that I was to put out a “Call for Prayer!” I ask all of you to stand with me in prayer for people around the world as we fight this battle against the abuses of the world.

LORD, we come to You today,
and in Your Mighty Name we pray.
We pray for Your Holy Spirit to pour out,
with Miraculous signs without a doubt. Continue reading

Nuggets – [Facing Your Feelings 10] The Reality of Rejection

images[Facing Your Feelings 10] The Reality of Rejection

 by Vickie Kraft

Kathy, an aspiring young writer, received a telephone call from a local pastor. “You did such a great job of editing my sermon transcripts into booklets, I suggested to Martha Frazier that you do the same for her. Do you know who she is?”

Kathy frowned, trying to place the name. The pastor continued, “Martha has a unique ministry, teaching Bible classes on the North Side. She’s a bit eccentric,” he chuckled briefly, “but she’s got some great things to say. I recommended you highly, and she wants you to attend her Bible study tomorrow afternoon. She’ll meet with you afterward. Oh, and she said she’d leave your name at the gate.”

“What gate?”

“The study is probably in a gated community.”

Five Fold Ministry Offices and the Growth of the Elect

There is a growth in the Christian walk. As the Spirit in us brings us to more mature attitudes and capabilities, we, of course, with His help grow in grace and in His Spirit.

The scriptures are full of allusions and metaphors for this spiritual growth. “First the blade, then the ear, then the full corn in the ear,” the Master Christ said (Mark 4: 26-28). This is like how the kingdom of God grows here on earth at present in us. The seed, the word of God, is sown into some hearts, and it grows. For “the kingdom of God is within you.” Like the growth of any seed, a progression of growth develops in His governance in us.

We start out as babes in Christ, then we grow into youth, and then into fathers and “virtuous women” (I John 2: 13-14; Prov. 31: 10)). And we are “under tutors and governors” as children of God (Gal. 4: 2).

And God has set some members in His body to shepherd and teach and inspire the others until we all grow spiritually to the place the Father has purposed. These are the “apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers.” Continue reading

Child of the World – He holds the keys

May all who do not yet have the victory over sin  know this today – Jesus holds the keys for you.

Be blessed by Steve Green as he continues to sing to our hearts

 

These keys are under the control or authority of Jesus. Like the keys in Revelation 1:18.

I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades. Revelation 1:18

Keys are used as a symbol of power, authority and ownership . What grips and holds you today? You can be free from that bondage of sin and death for Jesus holds the keys to freedom and life for you today. Let Him free you from the chains that bind.

Ask Him to unlock the chains that bind you.

HE LIFTS US UP: ABUSE AWARENESS– Drug Abuse/Substance Abuse

drug abuse

 I am continuing a series on the various abuses. Now, I will proceed with the next abuse:  drug abuse or substance abuse… Substance abuse leads to other abuses with violence.

Many people feel that drug abuse only includes illegal drug usage. However, drug abuse is also called substance abuse which also includes the abuse of over-the-counter medications and prescription medications, as well as substances not even meant for human consumption. Many of these things cause alterations in personality and potential for violence.

What Would Jesus Do? – SoS Saturday

Irises from Presby Memorial Iris Garden

Irises from Presby Memorial Iris Garden

When Jesus take ownership of His garden (formerly your life) what does He do?

I have come into my garden, my sister, my bride;
I have gathered my myrrh along with my balsam.
I have eaten my honeycomb and my honey;
I have drunk my wine and my milk.
Eat, friends; Drink and imbibe deeply, O lovers.

Song of Songs 5:1 NASB
