King Asa 3of4: Man’s Reliance On God Is For God’s Glory, Part 1of2, Evans Olang

2Chronicles 16:1-14, “7 And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said to him: “Because you have relied on the king of Syria, and have not relied on the Lord your God, therefore the army of the king of Syria has escaped from your hand… 9 For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.”

In the last message we saw how God promised to give king Asa and the people of Judah peace and victory over their enemies if they remained with and in God. 2Chronicles 15:12, reads “Then they entered into a covenant to seek the LORD God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul; …15 – And all Judah rejoiced at the oath, for they had sworn with all their heart and sought Him with all their soul; and He was found by them, and the LORD gave them rest all around“. This is God’s promise to those who remain (abide) in Him.

I Am Persuaded, Part 2of3, Evans Olang

Romans 8:35&36, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword, vs. 36 As it is written “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter”

In my continuous study of God’s word, I am utterly convinced (persuaded) that God is not in a hurry. To prove it, read about Moses, Elisha, David, Paul, Gideon, Samuel, Eli and many in the bible that encountered with God. We need to get saved because tomorrow is promised to no one, the walk after salvation requires patience. Patience is accompanied by endurance. Paul writes in Romans 12:2, “Run this race with patience looking unto Jesus the author and the finisher of our faith“. He was persuaded that God was not in a hurry to do things. God is such a Master craftsman working on what He has started step by step. If you watch a potter working on clay, you will notice that he is not in hurry to finish working on whatever he is working on until it looks perfect. Be patient with God, He is not in a hurry.

A Husband Enjoying His Wife’s Body, Pastor Phil Sessa

Song of Solomon 7:1–9, “How beautiful your sandaled feet, O prince’s daughter! Your graceful legs are like jewels, the work of a craftsman’s hands. Your navel is a rounded goblet that never lacks blended wine. Your waist is a mound of wheat encircled by lilies. Law-and-graceYour breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle. Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are the pools of Heshbon by the gate of Bath Rabbim. Your nose is like the tower of Lebanon looking toward Damascus  Continue reading “A Husband Enjoying His Wife’s Body, Pastor Phil Sessa”

There is a great difference between SEEING WHAT YOU BELIEVE and BELIEVING WHAT YOU SEE. I prefer the first one, it teaches you to see things through the eyes of faith. Faith negates facts, it sees beyond the natural and presents a whole new picture of things which produces hope. People can see something the way it is, you are seeing what it can be, that is seeing what you believe.You can be in a situation that everyone has stopped hoping for good for it or you can be like the woman with the issue of blood who saw far beyond the natural that she could be healed and in the midst of it encourage yourself into the victory, trusting in the One who is able and touched the hem of His garment.
