Praying While Under Difficult Circumstances

God Speaks I Listen

 

Acts 7:59-60 While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” 60 Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep.

The story of Stephen in the book of Acts is a horrifying true story of a wonderful dedicated man who was filled with grace and the Holy Spirit of God.  He was martyred for His faith in the true word of God.  Stephen was in the worst situation a person can face and that is imminent death.  This man with his last breaths of life prayed and called on the name of Jesus.  He prayed for himself…for God to receive him and he prayed for others and then died.  He prayed to the very end of his life.

In any situation we face in life our first thought should…

God Is Trying To Tell Us Something

Leave a comment

God Speaks I Listen

Revelation 2:11 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

Revelation 3:11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. 13 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

I am no great theological genius….far from it in fact….But I do have a pair of ears. God has been speaking to the Church…to us in His word. His word may have been written a long…

WHAT DO YOU MEAN MY TROUBLES AIN’T REALLY NOTHIN”? HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND???

2 Corinthians 4:17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

Romans 8:18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

This morning as I read these two scripture verses…my heart was so overjoyed.  I thought to myself…God considers these extremely difficult things we go through…light compared to the eternal glory that waits for me in heaven?  You mean…heaven is so awesome that this will seem light in comparison?  Yah- hoo- weee!!!  Thank you Jesus!!  Glory to God!

I believe I CAN endure this life!!  I want to!!!  If this life… as hard as it is… can’t even be compared to what awaits me….I’m going to take advantage of everything that God has given me to use…

Do you have something you always say? Post it here. I love quotes.

Mary said:

Ester 4:16 “Go, gather together all the Jews who are in
Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and
my maids will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even
though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.”

Joshua said:

Joshua 24:15 But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to
you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods
your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in
whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the
LORD.”

Ruth said:

Ruth 1:16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you
or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will
stay. Your…

Why I need to worship God

Leave a comment

God Speaks I Listen

worship blog

Psalms 95:6 Come, let us bow down in worship,  let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;

Worshipping God is for me.  It keeps me knowing that God is taking care of me.  God doesn’t need my worship…I need to worship you God for my sake.  Worship keeps my mind in the right place which is in you.  You God are the I Am and you are securing in who you are.  You don’t need anything from anybody.

I need to worship you more than I can understand.  Worship is a very important part of who I am as your child.  I need to really get into honest and truthful worship from my heart and soul.  I need to develop in me pure worship from my sanctified spirit if I am to grow and mature as your child.

I must make worship a priority in my life!

I must also remember…

Are we really in the last days?

the last days best

2 Timothy 3:1-5  1But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

 

1Timothy 1:1The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.

Jude 1:18 They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.”

Mathew 24:3-8 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your…

Did Jesus have sibling rivalry?

God Speaks I Listen

Mathew 13:55-56 “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? 56 Aren’t all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?”

Jesus had brothers and sisters….and not brothers and sisters in the Lord….Well then again…maybe they were. These were His REAL brothers and sister from Mary and Joseph… whom I guess Joseph was Jesus step father. Now I’m confusing myself LOL!
If I was Jesus sibling I probably would be talking behind His back. It would sound like this:

Man…Jesus gets all the praise all the time. Everybody in the whole neighborhood is always bragging about Him. He is so smart and knows all this stuff about God… who they say is His real Father. How did God get to be His Father and not ours? I mean our papa Joe is really…
