READ: Proverbs 30, Luke 18, Revelation 10 LORD, HAVE MERCY Jesus loves it when we are persistent in prayer, when we keep coming back to Him over and over again in faith. Luke 18 tells us that if an unjust judge can be moved by the persistence of a supplicant, how much more shall the…

READ: Proverbs 28, Luke 16, Revelation 8 ABOMINABLE PRAYERS Jesus demands accountability for how we steward the resources He has given us. Jesus has given us family, friends, time, and money, and He insists that we use these resources well, that we are shrewd with what He has given us (Luke 16:8). Family and friends…

READ: Proverbs 7, Mark 11, 1 Peter 3 ANSWERS As followers of Jesus we must continually remind ourselves that answered prayer does not equate to fulfilled desire.

READ: Psalm 74, Daniel 7-9, Luke 2, 1 Corinthians 9 FOR GOD’S SAKE “For the Lord’s sake, cause your face to shine on Your sanctuary which is desolate.” (Daniel 9:17) God answers our prayers for His own sake. The heart of humanity longs to be the center of something, and the long journey to being like…

READ: Psalm 38, Jeremiah 7-9, Matthew 10, Acts 17 DON’T PRAY Because wrath and mercy meet in Jesus, we do not have an accurate understanding of Him if we make no place for wrath. To remove wrath from God is to reduce God’s nature and that is horrific blasphemy. Jeremiah was probably stunned to hear God…

READ: 1 Chronicles 13-15, Psalm 120, Mark 3, Hebrews 5 INADEQUATE CONSENSUS  It does not matter how much effort you put into good things. It does not matter how many people are involved.
