Jesus Answered

Matthew 22:29 "Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God." (KJV)

In other words we don't understand because we do not know the scriptures, nor the power of God. If we knew what God's word says then we would have the knowledge we need to deal with the everyday things that come our way. We would know God's will and we would not have to worry like we do.

Try reading a Psalm, like Psalm 23. What is it saying to you? Spend some time reading it, then asking God to reveal to you what He is saying to you through His words. The more you come to know Him the more you will understand your position in Him.

God Bless.

What Is The Problem?


That is probably one of the truest statements ever quoted from a person's mouth. Throughout our lives we meet many problems on our journeys. Some are easy to work out and some are devastating.

We as humans try to solve our problems by ourselves, forgetting that we have someone who will help us in whatever the problem or situation may be.

His name is Jesus. He understands problems. He understands devasting situations. He above all, understands all.

So why is it we trudge alone trying to get through these things?

Going to your knees is one of the best ways to hear what He has to say.

That isn't the only way to pray. But it is one of them. I find it also reminds me to be humble and reverent to the Lord. I feel free to tell Him what I need, what is going on, and I feel a sense of Awe knowing He is present, hearing me.

He Talks To You

Jesus is talking to the Sadducees. He told them they werewrong. They did not know the scriptures. They only read the first five books of the Bible. They ignored all religious writings except the first five books of the Old Testament which was the Law of Moses.

But He is also talking to us.

We do not know the word of God and because we don't know the words of God we don't know His power that is in His words.

I've always envisioned this scripture like this: Imagine my parents telling me they have given me everything I need to live a good life. They show me the box it is in. Then I decide not to open the box and see what they have given me. Can you imagine doing that?

Well, if you haven't opened up the Bible to see what God's words say, then you also don't know the power that is in His words. Power for you to live an abundant life overflowing with His love. You don't know how much He loves you. You don't know all the wonderful blessings He has for you.

The Bible contains everything we need throughout our lives.

He Responds To Repentance

Billy Graham said, "The wonderful news is that our Lord is a God of mercy, and He responds to repentance."

I am so glad God provided a way for us to become free from our sins. To know I have forgiveness helps me to get up each day and open my day with prayer. Just talking to the Lord gives me such peace. Because I have repented, I don't have that sin blocking my relationship with God.


Thank you Father, for what you have done for me. You gave your son, Jesus Christ to take my place on the cross so I could have forgiveness of my sins. He took my sins and died for me. Thank you. In Jesus Name and because of Him, I can come direct to you.
