Benefits of Fasting and Praying

Morever when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrite  of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their face, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward РMatthew 6:16.

When ye fast is a reference both to fasting and prescribed under the Mosaic Law in connection with the Day of Atonement, and the voluntary fast of that day. The Pharisees added two fast days, Monday and Thursday of each week as a case of public display and piety. Their sad disfigurement of face and the wearing of mourning garments gave them an opportunity to exhibit their superiority and sanctity before the people. Read More

Positioning Yourself for the Blessings

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly (wicked), nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful, but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law doth he meditates day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper (Psalm 1:1-3).  

God doesn’t judge people on the basis of race, sex or national origin as men do, but He judges them on the basis of their faith in Him and their response to His revealed will. There are two paths of life before us, God’s way of obedience or the way of rebellion and destruction. Read More

It’s Me Lord

Be careful (anxious) for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus – Philippians 4:6-7.

Be careful for nothing means not to worry, if we want to worry less, then we have to pray more. Whenever we start to worry, we need to stop and pray. God’s peace is different from the world’s peace. It is not found in positive thinking, in absence of conflict, or in good feelings. Real peace comes from knowing that because God is in control, our citizenship in the kingdom of God is sure, our destiny is set, and our victory over every difficulty, situations and circumstance comes through Jesus’ help.
