All the Time

 

Are you in a prayer rut? Same time, same place?

 

 

  • Every morning
  • Me, pray? Only in an emergency
  • Routine is good

1 Thessalonians 5:17 (NIV)
Pray continually.

Continually. All the time.

Not “all the time,” as in never sleeping or eating. But “all the time,” as never a situation where you cannot pray. Eyes open, not necessarily out loud (God hears your thoughts).

God is listening. All the time.

Free Peace

 

Peace, even in troubled times . . .
can’t buy it, can’t  get it from the government.

 

 

John 14:27 (NIV)
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled
and do not be afraid.


Best peace ever. And it’s free.

Free from Lies

Christ sets us free. You can be sure that those whispers of slavery (as CelebrateRecovery puts it, “our hurts, hang-up and bad habits”) come straight from the mouth of the enemy:

“They’re all out to get you.”
“Just one more won’t hurt you.”
“You’re too stupid.”
“Have it your way.”

 

John 8:44 (MSG)
When the Liar speaks, he makes it up out of his lying nature and fills the world with lies.

 

 

Truth wins. Christ beat up the liar. You’re free!

True Freedom

 

“There are two freedoms – the false, where a man is free to do what he likes; the true, where he is free to do what he ought.”
Charles Kingsley (1819 – 1875)

 

Celebrate true freedom.

Freedom’s Wilderness

 

Independence Day. Think freedom. Think spiritual freedom. What is holding you back from full spiritual freedom?

 

 

  • Bitterness and anger
  • My cravings
  • Fear!
  • The need to be in control

Galatians 5:1 (NIV)
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Christ sets us free.

Don’t feel free? Remember, the Israelites were free from slavery in Egypt for 40 years before they stepped into the freedom of the Promised Land. 

Maybe you’re still in the wilderness, on your way to the Promised Land.

No Retirees

Old saints don’t retire. They are reassigned to the front, where they became prayer warriors on the battle line.

 

James 5:16 (MSG)
The prayer of a person living right with God
is something powerful to be reckoned with.
