Is it Fair…

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes

There are times when we may feel we are being ripped off or someone takes something away from us. This happens more often than we’d like to think. When this happens, we may feel upset or angry and it’s possible that we may take it out on others. This is not good for them or us, but it can be hard to stop. Romans 12:19 says Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

When this type of thing happens, remember that God has a plan for you. You need to pray about the situation you are currently in and ask God to help you get through it. If you didn’t catch yourself in time, you need to pray for forgiveness and then apologize to the person you took it out on and ask for their forgiveness.

You will feel better about yourself and the situation. Remember the next time something like this happens that you need to pray immediately for the strength to deal with it in the proper way.

Give thanks in any situation

We all go through tough situations. Whether it is an illness, a death, or financial problems, we have all gone through them. For whatever reason, we have to go through these things. Most times these are attacks from the devil, but going through them and getting through them is the hard part. Telling the devil to go away and move on is hard for most people.

Jeremiah 33:11 says “‚ĶGive praise and thanks to the Lord of hosts, for the Lord is good; for His mercy and kindness and steadfast love endure forever! For I will cause the captivity of the land to be reversed and return to be as it was at first, says the Lord”.

As hard as it may be to be thankful and happy when all of these bad things are going on, you need to. You need to thank God everyday for the good things and that he is helping you stand strong and faithful during your difficult times. You need to listen to him and follow what he says as well.

Standing strong and continuing to stand on your faith can be difficult during hard times. Continue to pray for the courage and strength and God will show you the way and what you need to do. Just remember, God is on your side and he is there to help you every step of the way.

When you do this you will be the winner in your situation and in your life.

Do you have a house of prayer?

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes
We all know that prayer is important in our lives. It’s how we ask for forgiveness, it’s how we ask for help, and it’s how we ask for encouragement. Some pray everyday while others pray when they need to. Prayer is something that we should do at least once a day.

Did you know that your house can be a house of prayer if you want it to be?

Matthew 21:13 says “My house shall be called the house of prayer.”

Now this was God talking about his house, but the same can be of your house. All you have to do is ask God for your house to be a house of prayer and then follow what he says.

So it comes back to the same question. Do you have a house of prayer?
