How the word of God travels

I will be the first to admit that this blog was just something i started out of fun and just to “play around”.  Yes, I try my best to live a Christian life and yes I do believe everything i write.  BUT never would i know that this blog which is basic and primitive as compared to others would be able to reach all corners of the earth.  The picture below shows how God can use even something as simple as this blog to spread his word! The highlighted countries in light blue are countries where the blog has been viewed since I have been writing regularly.

Revelation 14:6

Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people.

Prayer request from A.R.R.

Received this today in the prayer request page.  Please life up P.C. in your prayers.

Please pray for my wife and I. I (have) been wanting another child, but she (has) been afraid/fearful with her high blood pressure (and) that it will be difficult during her pregnancy and put the child at high risk. Keep us in your prayers.

Merry Christmas Family….
God Bless

A.R.R., You will be in all our prayers.  This is a tough one because its praying for what you want and at the same time praying for someone else (in this case your wife) to be comfortable with what you are praying for.  Wanting another child is something i can relate to.  I also know how stressful and worrisome any pregnancy can be.

It is in my heart to pray NOT for your wife to change her mind or for you to receive what you are praying for BUT to pray for complete trust and submittal to the will of God.  The bible teaches us to trust the lord in all and rely on his infinite understanding.  I pray that you trust the Lord in his decision to help you have a child (or not) AND more importantly, I pray that your wife TRUSTS the lord if she does (or does not) get pregnant.

Psalm 84:11 
For the LORD God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The LORD will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.

Please keep us updated A.R.R. and rest assured that you have brothers and sisters in Christ  that are praying for you and your family.

Notes on Armor Of God

Ephesians 6:10-18New International Version (NIV)

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

My Notes:

Integrity. Integrity does not meaning perfection. Don’t appear different way to different people. You cannot have a business personality, a family personality, a friends personality, etc.  A Christian is the same regardless on who is is interacting with.  What you see is what you get.

Righteous. Purity of heart. Keeping my motive clear and clean. Even if you do the wrong thing, you wanna do the right thing. Have pure motives.

Peace. The gospel of peace. Peace with God, myself, and fellow people. Serenity is working and living peace.

Certainty. Certainty is faith. Trust God when all is going wrong in life. The more I love Gods word the less I worry about earthly problems. Gods truth is whether you believe it or not.

Integrity is attacked with lies. Righteousness and purity is attacked with lust. Peace and serenity will be attacked with worry.

Salvation. Protect your mind. Sanity. Protect your mind from evil thoughts.

Maturity is using the bible against the devil.

Spirit. The word of God is our weapon.

We are to live peace and speak it. We want to live peace but not speak it. share Jesus with others.

Fiery darts of the devil
Doubt. Did God really say that?
Discouragement.

Prayer is how we fight the battle with the devil.

Prayer Request From “P.C.”

Received this today in the prayer request page.  Please life up P.C. in your prayers.

Prayer List: Please Please Please Pray the HOLY SPIRIT leads as many people possible to pray for this Prayer Request…Please Pray with all your faith that GOD will Bless me (P.C.) with my Soul Mate as soon as it is possible with God . I’ve never had a girlfriend and been Praying and hoping for one for at least 20 years, I’m 42 years old now….Pray also GOD Blesses every person that Prays for me…Thank You

P.C., You will be in all our prayers.  We not only pray for companionship but for a clarity of mind.  We pray that the Lord will reveal to you clearly what he has planned for you.  As a child of christ, YOU HAVE PURPOSE and God HAS A PLAN FOR YOU.  Not all of us will have that special partner just as not all women will be mothers.  The hard thing for us to take is that sometimes the will of God is completely different than what we had in mind.  Take solace that the lord ALWAYS has our best interest in mind.  I leave you with this from the good book…

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. ”  Romans 8:28
