099 Ephesians 6:18 "All Prayer"

God calls us to pray without ceasing. Prayer is a way to stay in contact with Him. Prayer enables us to live face to face with God through the Holy Spirit. Prayer keeps us in constant fellowship with God. Prayer is a part of our armor. So how do we practice this "all prayer"? How to we put on this piece of armor?

Spiritual Derpession 07 "Fear of the Future"

Here we focus on Christ in order to conquer our fear of the future "...for God has not given us the Spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."

Spiritual Derpession 06 "Vain Regrets"

Here we continue to study the Scriptures so that we may not be ignorant of Satan's devices and methods and so fall into his subtle snares and traps. One such trap is being crippled by looking back into the past. This condition affects a large number of people. How do we deal with this?

2 Samuel 12

Here is Nathan' parable to David where God is faithful to rebuke David and send repentence. We must always remember that our sins will find us out and that our sins cannot be covered, but God is faithful and will keep His promise to keep us who are His sheep.

2 Samuel 11

As we study the temptation and sin of David we come away with a huge warning to Christians; a warning to always be watching and praying so that we can conquer our own temptations; and a warning to always be guarding our hearts.

The importance of reading the scriptures everyday; without it you will go out to battle without your sword and what kind of soldier would you be then? God's word is inspired, authoratative and sufficient--nothing can replace it.
