Cell Phones

June 2, 2018

Have you ever had your cell phone ring at an in opportune time? Maybe in church, at a doctors appointment, when you are just too busy to answer it, or you do answer it and it is a salesman. Cell phones are part of our lives today and they can be a blessing or an annoyance. Good news. We have a direct line to God through prayer. He is never too busy, His calls never get dropped and He is never annoyed with our calls. Have you talked to Him lately? He is waiting for your call.

2 Samuel 22:4 I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised:

Memorial Day

May 28, 2018

Remembering our fallen heroes and praying for those who are serving now. Thank you brave men and women who are willing to die for our freedom. Also, thank you Jesus for giving your life that we may have eternal life.

Prayer

May 3, 2018

Praying is work. Have you ever been praying and your mind will wander to a different subject? Or not been able to get to sleep and decided to pray and in just a little while you have fallen asleep?

Prayer is the one weapon the that Satan does not want you to use. Prayer will give you answers to problems or decisions that you are unsure about. God delights in hearing from His children.

The most wonderful thing is that He is interested in the smallest things in our lives and He loves to have us ask for them. Need a parking place or want to have someone call you that you haven’t heard from in awhile? Then there it is.. the parking place right in front of the building. The phone rings and the person who you wanted to talk to is calling. Coincidence some people say. No, answer to prayer from a loving Father who loves His children, and likes to give good things to them.

Matthew 7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

God Answers Prayer

April 15, 2018

Does God answer prayer? YES!

But His answer may be…

➡️ No, it’s not His will

➡️ Slow, it’s not the right time

➡️ Go, it’s in His Will and in His Time

Jeremiah 33:3

Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Have a Good Morning

April 14, 2018

Some people have to start their day with a cup of coffee. They feel they cannot function without that coffee in the morning. Others have a certain routine that gets them moving without coffee or breakfast. However you start your day, there is one thing that is essential, that is having time to communicate with The Lord with Bible reading and prayer. Don’t have time you think. Your day will go much better if you start it with Him.

Proverbs 8:17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

Spiritual Understanding

April 13, 2018

Matthew 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

Jesus spoke in parables so that true believers would understand what He wanted them to know and the unbelievers could not understand His instructions. Sometimes our physical seeing gets dim or out of focus and our hearing gets dull as we get older, but we must not allow our spiritual eyes to to be out of focus or our spiritual hearing dulled. How? Just as we correct our physical problem with glasses or hearing aids, we correct our spiritual problems by reading scripture and praying everyday. Allow Jesus to speak to you clearly and pray for understanding.

Children

April 7, 2018

One of God’s greatest blessings is children. If God has blessed you with one or several, He has given you one of the greatest gifts. Along with it comes love and responsibility. Children are a joy and at the same time can cause sorrow. Pray for your children. Thank the Lord for them. Today, the temptations of the world are used by the devil to draw our precious children away from the Lord. We must be diligent in our care for them. Give them an extra hug today and if they are far away send them a message of love.

Psalms 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

Spring Break

April 3, 2018

This is the time of year when students, teachers, businesses and others have “Spring Break”. People go about getting away from their regular routine to have fun, vacation and relax. Everyone needs to take time out for some relaxation or we get burned out. There is Someone who never stops taking care of us, He is always “on the job” Aren’t you glad that God never sleeps or takes a vacation from us. If you are taking a break, now or later, remember to keep in touch with Him. Do not get away from God. Continue to pray and read your Bible even if you are on Spring Break.

Psalms 121:3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Pray for Power to Win Souls

March 31, 2018

While many people have started their Easter weekend celebrations today, there are some faithful SOS Events volunteers who are going to events to witness for the Lord Jesus. If you are busy with your own Easter preparations, please take time to pray for them and also that many souls will be saved today. Tomorrow many people will go to church that never go any other time of year. Pray for your Pastor and those who are witnesses to have power and that souls will be saved.

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Bad News

March 21, 2018

The USA is in trouble within. Far too often there is news about a school being attacked, usually by a student. Children are killed or injured. Police officers are in constant danger, and some are shot doing their duty. Unrest—murders, robbery and every kind of sinful activity is reported everyday. It is discouraging to see the news on TV, social media or radio. When will it all end? The Bible says there is hope for our Nation. Christian it is up to us. We need to put God first, humble ourselves before Him. He will heal our land. If we don’t things will only get worse.

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
