Learning God’s Voice #1

I remember growing up and wanting to hear God’s voice. I didn’t know what He sounded like though, so I was not even sure what I was looking for! I’m sure many people can sympathize with that. I always thought that God must be able to speak to people today, after all, He did it with so many people in the Bible! I remember one day specifically, sitting in my closet, late at night, begging God to tell me what […]

Most powerful & holy God, Your Word teaches that we should “desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy” (see 1 Corinthians 14:1). Father, I pray for protection, for wisdom and for guidance. I pray You will bless and strengthen and give power to those who have the gift of prophecy. I pray that those who do not know whether they have this gift will realize You have blessed them with it. God, I pray against all fear […]

God says: I Provide!

In the past years, as my husband and I have just been starting out, we have found that God truly does know and understand our every need and desire. Yesterday, I was half thinking, half praying, and I realized that the Lord provides in so many ways. He does not limit His provision to what we ask for, nor does He only deliver it in the way we expect Him to. So often my husband and I request that He […]

How to Know God’s Will

What is the will of God? As Christians, many of us know and believe that God has a plan for our lives and we must rely on Him for direction. But one of the most common questions people have is “What is God’s will?” Thankfully, Bible has plenty to say about God’s will! For example, 1 John 2:17 says, “Those who do the will of God will abide forever,” and Jesus told His followers, “Not everyone who says to me, […]

God says: Abide in Me!

Over the years, I’ve heard that parenting provides an excellent example of how God loves & cares for us. Like parents, God disciplines us for our good (see Hebrews 12:10) and I’ve learned from afar that the love parents have for their children is a wonderful parallel to how God loves us. But during this pregnancy, as I am quickly approaching becoming a mom and plunging into parenthood, I haven’t thought much about how even this stage of parenting is […]
