Purpose for the Pain

Sickness, Illness and disease are horrible and can make us question God’s love and involvement in our lives. But seek Jesus because He is waiting to tell you how important you are to Him.

Cleansed from Shame

After having a strong relationship with the Lord, I fell into a sinful practice. Even after I stopped, the shame didn't go away. I felt like God couldn't use me anymore. Then one day, He showed me the truth. He discarded my filthy rags of shame and clothed me with peace and hope.

When Hope (Seems To) Fail

One of the main messages of Christmas is hope. But there are years in our life when those prayers for hope go unanswered. Even though it seems like God has failed you, you’re not alone. And even when it’s hard to see, there is always hope.

Humility in Prayer

Upon digging further, I also found 1 John 5:14-15, “And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.” So it’s not just whatever we ask; it’s whatever we ask according to His will. Our confidence in prayer then can be held in promises He has already given us in Scripture, or occasionally devine personal revelation. But that left me lost about prayers for healing or personal requests. What is the point praying for our health or desires, when we have no power to change God’s will?
