Fear

June 10, 2020

As places like restaurants, department stores and other businesses begin to open and people start going out again, there is still a lot of fear and uncertainty in many people.

As Christians we need to take reasonable precautions, however, we do not need to be overwhelmed by fear and frustration. God promises to protect His children. Let us put our trust in Jesus, our Savior and give Him all of our fear no matter what the circumstances.

Faith

“Faith is like radar which sees through the fog, the reality of things at a distance that the human eye cannot see.” Corrie ten Boom

Corrie must have had many days when her faith would be tested and she could not see what was ahead. In World War II her family protected hundreds of Jews from death by hiding them in a hidden room in her bedroom. Eventually the hiding place was detected and Corrie was sent to a German concentration camp. But she never lost her faith in God.

After the war she returned to her home and helped concentration camp survivors get rehabilited into a regular life. She wrote many books and became a sought after speaker especially in Christian gatherings. She moved to the United States and died on her 91st birthday in California.

If you feel like you are living in a fog, not able to see what God has planned for you, be encouraged, God has a plan and propose for your life and whatever your circumstances God will bring you through. He sees and will guide you with His eye.

Psalms 32:7-8 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

God is in Control

April 7, 2020

We like to be in control of everything in our lives. Fear comes when we are in a situation that we can do nothing about. That is where some of us are right now. This coronavirus has caused our lives to be turned upside down and we have no control.

That is where faith is important. God is in control. He knows what we are going through. Sickness, death, cancellations, uncertainty. Now is the time to turn to Him for peace, comfort and most of all trust.

Proverbs 3:5&6 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.

Big problem? God is bigger.

Faith, Hope and Charity

February 11, 2020

Love is translated charity in the King James Bible. Love is charity. Love for God and love for others, the two great commandments.

Jesus Came to Save You

January 15, 2020

This is one of the most memorized and recognized verses in the Bible. Jesus did come for everyone in the world but you must realize that He died for you personally and then believe in His death, burial and resurrection. Only those who trust in Jesus as their Savior will have everlasting life.

Faith

May 28, 2019

Sometimes our faith fails. Maybe through a trial in our lives, or we think God does not hear our prayers. Jesus told His disciples several times, “O ye of little faith”.

The wonderful thing that He also said in the verse above is that all we need is faith as small as a mustard seed.

How can we increase our faith? “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

On SOS home page is a great Bible Study on Faith. It is lesson 10. That is a good lesson to help increase our faith.

Be Ready

May 10, 2019

One woman and her husband accepted the Lord as their Savior. Before they left the booth, she told the soul winner that when she walked into the building she knew something good was going to happen, she could feel it. Then she gave the soul winner a hug.

The Holy Spirit will prepare a person’s heart to accept Him but if the soul winner isn’t prepared or willing to share then that person will either not accept the Lord that day or the Lord will find someone else that can share the good news with them.

Why not let that person be you, the one that shares?

2 Timothy 4:2 (KJV) says, Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
