    Early in the morning, while it was still dark, he rose up and went out, and departed into a deserted place, and prayed there. Simon and those who were with him searched for him. They found him and told him, "Everyone is looking for you." Mark 1:35-37 WEB.Jesus would often withdraw from the noisy cr...

    Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. Samuel said to Jesse, "Yahweh has not chosen these." Samuel said to Jesse, "Are all your children here?"

    God made the two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He also made the stars. Genesis 1:16 WEB.He also made the stars, what a sentence. I sometimes read this, and I am amazed by how much the Bible packs into a single verse. Scientists estimate that...

They Have Been With Jesus

  • Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and had perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled. They recognized that they had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13 WEB

    The disciples of Jesus were mostly uneducated fishermen, but later people lined the streets hoping that the shadow of Peter would pass over them (Acts 5:15). Peter had become more than a simple fisherman because He had wisdom, anointing, and power, from an unseen Source. There is certainly nothing wrong with an education, but if it turns you away from God, then you would be better off without it. There is a wisdom available that is far greater than what man can teach you, and it is gained by spending time with Jesus.

    I grew up on a farm in the country, but I learned computer programming by prayer and practice. It was something that I really wanted to do and at the time, there were no books available to me. Even now when I get stumped on a project, I spend some time in prayer, and soon He reveals the way to fix it. Suddenly I know what the problem is. You can call it inspiration, coincidence, or my imagination. All I know is, I have a problem that I don't know how to fix, I pray about it, and soon I do.

    I had no idea that I would be using those skills for His kingdom one day, but He did for He gave me the desire to begin with. So don't become discouraged if what you want to do seems difficult at times. Take it to the Lord in prayer. He has all the answers, and He can make it happen, but He does not do it all for us. He allows us to be a part of the solution. Spending time with Jesus will make you smart.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please anoint me, reveal the gifts that You have placed in my life and help me use them for Your kingdom. Please guide me into the place that I am supposed to be, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen!
