    God’s Strength: God Works in Unusual Ways

    As we go about our busy lives, we take for granted that everything will continue to go as planned. In fact, most days go on about the same as the others before. But on occasion, God works in unusual ways and the status quo gets rattled. When you did awesome things that we did not look for, you came down, the mountains quaked at your presence. ~ Isaiah 64:3 Unfortunately, God sometimes uses hard times to get our attention or to help us to see His Will in our lives. Most of the time, these troubles make life harder and we long for the days when each day was a dull…

Everyone seems to think it is acceptable to spew nastiness from their mouths just because they feel offended. These actions go completely against what the Bible commands us to live like. Unfortunately, many Christians use their Christianity to judge others. Because they feel like they are standing against sin, they feel justified in treating others poorly. Today’s verse is actually instructions to the church in Ephesus but it still applies to us…

I ask you Lord to help me to pray continually to You. All things that I have in…
