Sacrifice of Praise – Do Not Lose Heart

No praise has ever been so sweet as the praise that is given unto God, while walking with Him, in the midst of trials. And the specific trials themselves, by their type, need not a name. It is that they are trials unto you and unto me, being specific in their nature, even divinely appointed, and piercing deeply, that we might come to rest fully in the absolute sovereignty of His very being.

Fires of Afflictions, Standing Fast, Holding onto the Truth.

What can you learn about the fires of afflictions, standing fast, holding onto truth?

Have you embraced Jesus as most precious and most treasured in your life? There is a difference. Regarding truth faith and the power of God, for instance, consider the difference between that of the son of Sceva in Acts 19:11-20. They were mere professors at best, without truth, power and working reality. Then consider the three Hebrew young men as found in Daniel 3:13-30 – MASSIVE difference and a GOOD reminder, help and hope for us today in standing against ALL tyranny. Don’t forget, Jesus Himself prophesied Matthew 7:21-23.

One Beautiful Evening: The Night Grace Became Sweet Unto My Soul

I have been so busy with so many other things that I have yet to share a little Living History project that I have begun studying, noting and piecing together. I have a long ways to go on this little project, but is tentatively titled, “One Beautiful Evening: The Night Grace Became Sweet Unto My Soul.”

Jesus – Our Hope in Suffering

Recently I preached a few messages all centered around Hebrews 12:1-3. Many of the verses that were included I have been collecting over the last several years. I have been personally studying, applying and repenting of my disbelief in God being absolutely sovereign through these very passages.
