God’s Perfect Number

While studying God’s Word to believers the other day, I was thinking about God’s order in everything and His faithfulness in fulfillment of that order.

Lamentations 3:22,23 – “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is your faithfulness.”

It seems God’s perfect number is three. Seven is the number of completion. Eight is the number of new beginnings. Continue reading

I Pledge Allegiance…

Who has your allegiance today?  Who or what has your loyalty?   Who are you willing to die for?

As we celebrate the 4th of July and all the activities this week, let’s examine our hearts and locate our allegiance.  Keep your focus and beliefs firmly grounded in the Word of God.

As Christians, first and foremost, our allegiance is to God and His Word.  God is our source of everything and the very reason we get up each morning.  Every breath we breathe is a gift from God.  Continue reading

God’s Marvelous Grace

What is Grace? People have different ideas of what it is. The first scripture reference about Grace that most of us know is Ephesians 2: 8-9, which reads as follows: “For by Grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” NKJV

Amazing Grace is a hymn that is well known to everyone. We love to sing and express our gratefulness to the Lord for saving us when we were walking in darkness and had no knowledge of Him! When the burden of sin we carried was lifted off of us, our lives were changed forever! Continue reading

Peace! Peace!

“Lord we pray for Divine appointments, open doors of opportunity and Father-ordained encounters to help build your church.”

This is a prayer that has been prayed by my husband, myself, our kids and friends, people who don’t know the Lord, and those who do.

My husband, Gary, and I have been serving the Lord for the past 40 years. We have prayed this prayer innumerable times in many situations. We don’t know how or when the answer will come, but we know God is faithful. He will come through for us, and has! Continue reading

While You’re Waiting…

So much of our life includes lots of waiting time.  We wait to be served at a restaurant, at the bank, fast-food drive through, paying for groceries, shopping at a department store, etc.

Even here in the slower-paced Ozarks, especially in Branson, Missouri area all the “locals” have learned to take alternate routes around the Highway 76 strip.  During the tourist season bumper-to-bumper traffic crawls at a speed of 5-10 miles per hour and often comes to a stand-still.

Likewise, in our spiritual lives there is a passing of time involved before the answers to our prayers manifest. We have prayed, we believe God has heard, and then the “waiting” begins.  How long will it last? Continue reading
