Hearing From God! by Elaine Davenport September 30, 2013

I wrote this article for one reason only. To ask you a question.  Can you Hear From God?

There are three answers:  yes,no  and sometimes.  The last answer is the most challenging.    Yes, all the time must be our answer and this is true even if we have to work harder.

The natural man wants to work alone without direction.  So, if you make up your mind to hear what God has to say you can expect distractions.

If you can’t hear anything at all…I challenge you to find out why.

In these tough times, hearing from God is more critical than ever!healing-and-restoration

The Night I Could Have Died! by Elaine Davenport August 31, 2013

1 Corinthians 10:31 ESV

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

 

1 Corinthians 6:19 ESV

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,

I went out of town quite recently after much prayer.  If anything saved me from the things that lied ahead of me…it was the hours of prayer…and God’s grace and mercy.

 

A lot of things happen to us as a result of our disobedience.  Though it is not popular to admit it…a lot of times we miss the mark.

 

Before I went out of town, a strong feeling came over me not to eat any hamburgers on my trip.

That sounds strange doesn’t eat.  I do not eat hamburgers normally but for some reason I found myself thinking about how great they must be at my destination.  So, I had one and then two.  After the second one…I got deathly ill in the middle of the night…something like a heart attack.  Pain that could not be ignored. I sat up in the bed and prayed for well over an hour.  I apologized to God..  I had missed it.  Many times we will get a warning and we will override it…my prayer is that none of us ever do that again…in Jesus Name.

 

JAMES 1: 12

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.

Healing And The Fourth Of July! July, 2013

Today presents a wonderful opportunity to set some meaningful traditions.   The Fourth of July is too often a day in which people sleep late, cook and eat.  However, we would not enjoy these freedoms if it weren’t for the many men and women of our armed forces who took on the dangerous jobs of protecting our freedoms.  And we enjoy many.  It would be so nice if there were a way that we could be connected to military families to serve and honor them in some small or large way to let them know that we love them and we are grateful for their fine service.  You must understand that their service is based on love and they are the people who have chosen to step out in faith to do this and by doing so ; they are set apart.  I pray the 91st Psalm for them and I ask you to join me in continuously covering them.  I thank you.

Psalm 91

English Standard Version (ESV)

My Refuge and My Fortress

91 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say[a] to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only look with your eyes
and see the recompense of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—
the Most High, who is my refuge[b]
10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
no plague come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.
12 On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the adder;
the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.

14 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my name.
15 When he calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”

 

 

Galatians 5:13

For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
