Ultimamente pensamentos me levaram de volta para os meus dias como uma mãe solteira criar quatro filhos. Cenas do passado inundaram volta como recordei os desafios que enfrentaram a minha família na preparação para cada ano escolar. Estas memórias são acionadas por conversas recentes sobre as necessidades de meus netos para o novo ano escolar que rapidamente se aproxima. Outras memórias apareceu de ver todos aqueles anúncios de volta às aulas.
Lembro-me de como os dias de verão chegou ao fim a emoção de estar fora da escola tinha o seu curso e os meus filhos, na verdade, queria voltar para a escola! Eles olharam para a frente para ter um novo professor, reunindo-se com velhos amigos, fazer novos, e compras de roupas e suprimentos necessários. Durante estes tempos medo tentaria segurar e me convencer de que eu não teria dinheiro suficiente até mesmo para o básico. Continue lendo
For years I had no idea that wrong thinking could cause havoc in one’s life.
The enemy has deceived many into thinking that it doesn’t matter what you think as long as your actions are all right. The truth of the matter is that eventually your thoughts will become actions if you entertain them long enough.
Negative thinking keeps one from reaching his potential in life. Often parents make the mistake of saying words to their children that may scar the child for years to come. Those words are not easily forgotten and because of the very impressionable mind of a child much damage is done that may affect them all of their lives. Continue lendo
I love reading God’s Word, even out loud, and receiving new revelation from it. In John, capítulo 9, several things caught my attention. In verses 2 - 5, the question was asked Jesus about the blind man. Basicamente, the conversation went like this (paraphrased). “Who did sin, this man, or his parents?” Jesus answered: “Neither, that the works of God should be made manifest in him.”
As you read the account you discover that Jesus personally made clay, anointed the blind man’s eyes with the clay and said, "Vá, wash in the pool of Siloam.” This is faith in action! Verso 9 diz: “Some said this is he when they saw him. Others said, “He is like him, but He (the blind man) dito: “I am he!" Continue lendo
Last week we ended with the assurance that if we as God’s people truly repent, it can turn our families and nation back to God and receive His blessing. Scripture teaches that when the righteous rule a nation is blessed. Individually and corporately we must first repent.
A powerful man of God, Charles Spurgeon, wrote about the water-downed gospel message and worldly church practices that were already apparent in his lifetime. I was led to read this after spending time with God regarding this devotion. I ask you to take a few more moments to read his teaching on this subject. Obrigado. Continue lendo
Our nation prospered when our leaders were men of God and our pastors preached the infallible Word of God.
In just the years I have been saved I have seen a drastic change in the teaching of God’s Word. There is no value placed on God’s Word and there is no reverential fear of God. His Holy Word is compromised and some churches are building on sinking sand.
They try all their own ideas of what they think will work. Some churches bring in entertainment to attract crowds. Anything we put before God is an idol. Continue lendo
