Heal Our Sight

annisfavored's avatar

“Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.” - Matthew 20:33 (NIV) These two blind men wanted their physical sight.  But we should be like these blind men in regards to our spiritual sight.  We must ask God to open our eyes and our hearts to the things of the Spirit.  Although these things mean nothing to the logical thinkers of this ...

That Pleases Him

And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. - Mark 1:11 Did you know that God is well-pleased with us as well?  Is it because we are special?  No, even though we are to Him.  Is it because we say or do the right thing?   No.  He is pleased with us because once we have accepted Christ, we ...

Teach me your way, O LORD; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors. - Psalm 27:11 (NIV). This is such a sweet prayer because here we see a humble person.  He is saying that he doesn’t know it all.  He is saying that he needs God to teach him.  He needs God to lead him in a straight path no matter what comes against him. We ...

There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the LORD. - Proverbs 21:30. None of our wisdom, our knowledge, our understanding can succeed against the Lord.  We can't hide from Him.  He knows where we are at all times.  He knows what we are doing, thinking, dreaming, even what we are worried about.  It is time for us to ...

"Have I Loved"

Authored by annisfavored on Sat, Jan 19 2008 - 09:08 AM

annisfavored's avatar

As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. - Romans 9:13  (KJV). I find it interesting that God used the name Jacob here.  God could have said, “Israel have I loved.”  After all, God had renamed Jacob.  He gave him the name Israel. I believe He chose to call him Jacob here because God wanted to emphasize the fact that ...

My pastor taught on meditating on the Word of God (Joshua 1:8).  He recalled that on several occasions, he muttered a Scripture to himself while he took a walk.  As he did, God gave him revelation about that particular Scripture. While I washed my hair a couple of weeks ago, I muttered III John 2 to myself.   God stopped me and started ...

You Expect Me To Believe This?

Authored by aloha53 on Fri, Jan 18 2008 - 09:22 AM

I love thinking about an angel announcing to Zachariah that even though he and his wife were senior citizens, they would be adding on a nursery. The angel told him that his son would get people ready for the Messiah. Zechariah's response? In one version, it's phrased, "You expect me to believe this?""Say what?" might be a good ...

Today, it is hard for us to conceive of a worl without hate, war, crime, fear, strife, pain and hunger. For a thousand years, we will enjoy peace; the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord; man's life span will be extended, and even the animals will be at peace (Isaiah 65:20-25).

The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. - Exodus 14:14-15 (KJV). In order for God to fight for you, you have to hold your peace. He told me recently that as long as I worried about things, I kept my hands on those things I wanted  Him to handle.  Instead every time I am anxious, I am training myself to say, “I will ...

Condemnation?

You forgave the guilt of your people—yes, you covered all their sins. - Psalm 85:2 (NLT). Isn't that a wonderful promise?  God has forgiven our guilt and covered all our sins. Sometimes, as Believers, we live with a lot of guilt from our past.  Things we have done that weren't God-like.  Things we have said that weren't too nice.  ...
