    When you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most assuredly, I tell you, they have received their reward. Matthew 6:5 WEBIt was a hot summer day in the South and Dad and I were wo...

    But the Jews stirred up the devout and prominent women and the chief men of the city, and stirred up a persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and threw them out of their borders. But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came to Iconium. The disciples were filled with joy and with ...

That Nagging Feeling

  • So Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of His own accord, but only what He sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise. John 5:19 ESV

    Their eyes welled up with tears as I handed them the envelope. Without saying anything, they knew what was inside because they had been silently praying for help. All the while they were trying to keep up an outward appearance that everything was fine. I just had this nagging feeling that I was supposed to give them some money, though by all appearances they appeared to have more than I did. God saw what I did not see.

    Jesus rose early in the morning and prayed, then listened and was alert to what the Holy Spirit was saying. It was not a cold, dead, religious word but a living, fresh, relevant word each day. No one walked on water, until Jesus did. No one fed thousands from one lunch basket, until Jesus did. He was our example and worked with God daily. He always did what He saw the Father doing.

    When you have that nagging feeling that you are supposed to do something, even though it appears to make no sense to you, do it. God often seeks those that will listen to be the answer to someone's secret prayer. Following the gentle prompting of the Holy Spirit will make your life come alive.

    Prayer: Father, please refill me with your Holy Spirit and bring divine encounters in my life. I believe that You are the living God and have a plan for me. Teach me to recognize when You are speaking, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: "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" (Ephesians 6:18).
