Obstacles To Answered Prayer (1)

‘Call to Me, and I will answer you.’ Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV For the next few days let’s look at some reasons why our prayers aren’t answered. First, fallen angelic powers. For three weeks Daniel prayed and got no answer. Why? Because an evil force in the spiritual realm, ‘the Prince of Persia’, blocked it (see Daniel 10:13). So God …Read More

Let Go, And Let God

‘Give your burdens to the Lord.’ Psalm 55:22 NLT Are you burdened about someone you love? Have your efforts to help them failed? Let go, and let God deal with them!

Go Back To Where You First Met God!

Don’t Spread Discouragement

‘So they spread this bad report.’ Numbers 13:32 NLT Discouragement caused the Israelites to doubt God’s promise, give up their dream, and die in the wilderness. Ironically, they were only several days’ journey from the Promised Land! How did it happen? After spending forty days in Canaan, a land of such fruitfulness that it took two men …Read More
