Anger or Love

This past week I found myself in a couple of situations that rose up in me some angry feelings. After examining myself closer I noticed these feelings of anger were rooted in pride. I was prideful that these people who were the cause of this anger didn't understand me and were judging me wrongly. I am thankful I curbed my tongue before I said something wrong and spent time in prayer with Father allowing Him to show me the cause of the anger. 

Even when Jesus was being tortured for us He never complained or became angry. No, as He hung on the cross He said instead, 
Luke 23:34
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.
  Friends, I encourage you when someone misunderstands you or mistreats you do not become angry but love them and pray for them. That is what Jesus did and we are to follow in His footsteps not the footsteps of the world.

How Come?

I saw this picture on Facebook and I thought, yea, so true! If evolution was true then mothers should have at least 10 hands. I say this in itself proves evolution to be false. :)

Revelation 4:11 ESV
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”

Exodus 20:11 ESV
For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

Be Still And Wait

Psalm 40:1 NIV
I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me, and heard my cry.

We live in an age where everything is fast. We have fast food, fast communication, fast everything. Just a couple of days ago a friend posted a picture on Facebook of his speedometer at 190 K as he was traveling on the autobahn! He said he was slow compared to those who were passing him.

With our rapid lifestyle it seems that God is moving in slow motion. We are accustomed to instant communication via phone, internet or such and we expect God to answer our prayers immediately. If He hasn’t answered quickly we think oh He never heard me or He isn’t real or we take the matter into our own hands and step outside of His will.

Waiting, though, can grow us in a way that nothing else can. Abraham waited 20 years for God to fulfill His promise of a son and he never did see the inheritance that God promised him. Abraham is known to be a man of faith and it was the waiting on God’s timing that molded and fine-tuned his faith. David too waited for the Lord to fulfill His promise to him of being king. In fact as David was waiting on God’s timing, he was running for his life. A couple of times he had the opportunity to take matters into his own hand and kill Saul but David wouldn’t go there because he feared God. Yet even so, David cried out to God…

Psalm 143:7 NIV
Answer me quickly, Lord; my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit.

With all the new technology and speed at our fingertips it is us who are changing not God. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He doesn’t answer prayer any slower than before; it is just that now we are even more impatient then our ancestors.

Psalm 40:1-3 NIV
I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him.

Psalm 27:14 NIV
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.

Does God have you in a place of waiting? If so, let Him sculpt you and mold you. This maybe a time of growing, a season of stretching; take the opportunity to learn from Him how to be still and just wait.

James 1:2-4 NIV
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Remembrance Day/Prayer Requests

Do you want a bit of Canadian history? Click here for the story on Vimy Ridge and how these brave, young men captured it.

Today I am thankful for those who were brave enough to give up what they had so my family can have what we have. So often when I remember the veterans my mind is drawn to Jesus Christ and what He gave up for us so we can have the chance to accept eternal life with Him in heaven. What a gift!!

John 14:6 ESV
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

Do you have a concern on your heart that you want prayer for? Message me either through Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or email me, cpr[dot]ezra[dot]8[dot]23[at]gmail[dot]com and let me know if you want it posted on the blog or if you just want me to keep silent about it. If you want anonymity, message me through Tumblr you can use the anonymous option and I will answer you privately.

Billy Graham's Message to America

Billy Graham's message
Father, He loves you with a deep, powerful love.

Mark 8:34 ESV
And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
John 3:16 ESV
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
There is no other way to happiness, peace or eternal salvation. We all must at one point in time, either here on earth or when we meet God face to face, bend our knee in submission to His authority.

"The cross is offensive because it directly confronts the evils of this world." Billy Graham.

We have all gone astray, each and every one of us has turned to his own way. We need a Savior and His name is Jesus Christ.

Fasting and Praying for Pastor Saeed!

Fasting and praying for Pastor Saeed

Monday November 4, Tuesday November 5 and Wednesday November 6 are fasting and prayer days for Pastor Saeed. It seem he has been transferred from Evin Prison in Tehran to Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj which is known for those people who are on death row. Recently 2 people have been killed right in front of Pastor Saeed. He is in desperate need of our prayers and there has been a request for those who are willing to fast for him as well. Here is the full story. Saeed Transferred to Brutal Iranian Prison If you have a facebook page, please stop by Pray for Pastor Saeed Abedini and let his wife know you are praying for him.

Acts 12:6-11 ESV
Now when Herod was about to bring him out, on that very night, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries before the door were guarding the prison. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood next to him, and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him, saying, “Get up quickly.” And the chains fell off his hands. And the angel said to him, “Dress yourself and put on your sandals.” And he did so. And he said to him, “Wrap your cloak around you and follow me.” And he went out and followed him. He did not know that what was being done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. When they had passed the first and the second guard, they came to the iron gate leading into the city. It opened for them of its own accord, and they went out and went along one street, and immediately the angel left him. When Peter came to himself, he said, “Now I am sure that the Lord has sent his angel and rescued me from the hand of Herod and from all that the Jewish people were expecting.”

Let's claim this Scripture passage for Pastor Saeed.
God is good!! 
This is not to hard for Father and if it is His will Pastor Saeed will be freed.

Fasting and praying!
