Christian and Church Confinement

happens as a result of their prayers?

Since the beginning of the Church, the Church has always faced her problems. Some of the problems the Church has faced include:

1. Getting the Gospel to the outsiders.

2. Securing spiritual results from the Church’s ministry.

3. Finding the right leaders for various ministries.

4. Having a lack of love and unity.

5. Disciplining new converts.

These problems are serious but not the most crucial. The critical problem that leads to a fatal condition is the prayer life of the Church. The strength of any Church will be directly proportionate with it’s prayer life. The greater the prayer life of it’s membership, the greater the strength of the Church.  Prayer will supersede all problems that the Church will encounter.  It will release the Church from the bondage and confinement she finds herself.  Prayer will keep the Church in a loving and united condition. But it takes continual prayer, not just spontaneous prayer. Prayer without ceasing for others in the answer to keep Christians from falling into confinement of the world, and to keep them free to serve the Lord, and to receive the joy promised.

Fulfilling Your calling – Part 3

There are evangelists, pastors and workers who never wrote a book, sold a tape, drew a crowd or gained national fame, but they paid the price. Like Noah, whose membership never exceeded 8 in the Ark, they ministered faithfully.

Fulfilling Your Calling – Part 2

The highest level of joy you will ever know is having a clear understanding of God’s will and knowing how to fulfil it. Once you know that, you can lace up your shoes and start running. You can only win if you run on the track the Lord has chosen for you. As King David prayed, you will pray for the Lord to teach you His ways and lead you in a straight path.

Fulfilling Your Calling – Part 1

Once you have discovered your calling, through the help of the Holy Spirit, the next step is to fulfil it. (Please see my article, “Discovering your calling.”) Sometimes, what you hear in your spirit will be different from what you hear with your natural ears. Once you understand that, nothing will be more important to you than keeping pace with God, for His direction is always right. His timing is always perfect and His results are always best.

Discovering Your Calling – Part 2

You must not let anyone label you or put you in a box. Also, do not let anyone look down on you because of your age or status. Being poor of physically challenged does not mean that one cannot answer God’s calling. Once you pray and ask God to direct you into your calling, look unto Him only and He will not lead you astray.

Discovering Your calling – Part 1

Before you can discover what God has called you to do or reach your full potential, you have got to find a lasting basis on which to build your self-worth. Discovering your call is finding out or learning for the first time what God has got in store for you. Just as one’s beliefs can move one forward, shadow beliefs can hold one back.

Satan’s Three Strategies of Temptation

Satan is definitely trying to wear down the Saints of God. He constantly strikes at God’s saints through his strategies of temptation. Temptation in it’s negative sense which entices evil is traceable to Satan. Temptation in it’s positive sense (testing) which entices spiritual good is traceable to God.

A Simple Counsel…Look For The Blessing

A tried and tested spiritual exercise practiced by many Christians is to begin each new day with the words of the Psalmist, “This is the day that the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it”. Regardless of the weather, the world circumstances, or any condition we may possibly be experiencing, the discipline of repeating those words provides energy and creates an optimistic attitude.
