In Matthew 6:5-15, Jesus taught us how to pray.
Where there once was only discipline, there is now love.
Is there something in your life that you have been asking God for? Is God taking His time answering? Are you growing weary and frustrated with God from waiting?
Now that I’m living more than one of my answered prayers, I can attest that this is so true.
Ask yourself, am I making a decision based off of presumption or faith in a promise I received from God.
Presumptuous sin is an intentional and deliberate sinful or rebellious act committed against God. It’s a complete disregard for one’s own conscience, God’s Word, and what a person knows to be right.
No. Although you may be alone and feel alone, you’re not alone in your suffering. The Lord is with you. He sees you. He knows where you are. He knows what you need and how to get it to you.
If you want to know how much God loves you, just look at the One He sent to die in your place: Jesus Christ.
Do you feel like you’re being devoured by your circumstances? Are you in a season of trial, tribulation, and suffering? Has the devil come in like a flood–threatening to steal, kill, and destroy everything in your life?
Jesus is the good Shepherd. The One who laid down His life for His sheep (you and I). In Psalm 23, King David beautifully depicts Jesus’s role as the Chief Shepherd in our lives: He loves us, cares for us, leads us, guides us, chastens us, corrects us, protects us, and provides for us etc.
