God's By Your Side

God's faithfulness is proclaimed throughout the entire book of Psalms. Just one example is Psalms chapter 117 - "Praise the LORD, all you nations, extol him, all you peoples. For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD."

Let's look at the following ways that God's word refers to His faithfulness in different areas of our life. Maybe we can then get a better understanding of what faithfulness is all about.

  1. In our salvation - "He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful." I Corinthians 1: 8-9
  2. In the deliverance from temptation - "No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it." I Corinthians 10: 13
  3. In our sanctification - "May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it." I Thessalonians 5: 23-24
  4. In forgiving us and cleansing us from sin - "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." I John 1: 9
  5. In our suffering - "So then, those who suffer according to God's will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good." I Peter 4: 19
  6. In eternal life - "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful." Hebrews 10: 23
Allow God's Spirit to move into all areas of your life so that faithfulness becomes a way of life for you. People around you will then be able to see the love of God through your faithful living.

Listen to this amazing song about the awesomeness of our God and His faithful love towards us. He's by your side!

Every time I listen to this song it ministers to me. It reminds me of all the wonderful things that Jesus did for us and knowing that He will never let go of us because He'll always be by our side.

I Worship You With All of Me

It's hard sometimes, when we battle with our past insecurities and breaking through all the things that hinders total surrender.

Yet, I am resolved to lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily beset us so that I can worship the Lord with all of me, even though the flesh keeps getting in the way.

I guess that's why I must give Him myself daily! The word of God assures me that I can do all things through Christ! I have to believe He is able to keep that which I commit to Him daily. Therefore Lord, I worship you with all of me!!!

It pleases God when we give to Him all that we are and have. This is our reasonable service, a sacrifice that is truly reasonable in light of all God's mercies to us. Truly, giving our bodies, souls, spirits, and possessions to the Lord is the least for us.

Hope Anticipates

"For thou art my hope, O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth" (Psalm 71:5).

God has made many promises to us. Faith believes His Promises. Hope Anticipates the fulfillment of His promises, and patience quietly awaits the results. Faith, hope, and patience are core dimensions of praying God's promises.

Hope, like faith, sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible. We cannot live without hope, because hope is the anchor of the soul, the stimulus to action, and the incentive to achievement.

Hope is faith holding out its hand in the dark, and it is putting faith to work when doubting might seem to be easier. Life with Christ is an endless hope, but life without Him leads to a hopeless end.

Charles L. Allen reminds us, "When you say a situation or a person is hopeless, you are slamming the door in the face of God." With God, there are no hopeless situations or hopeless people.

Lord You give me hope, therefore, I will no longer have to experience sadness or disquietude in any form. I will ever hope in you, O God. I will always praise you, because you are the health of my countenance, and you are my God.

For Every Mountain ( Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir)

This year has been very challenging, but my faith in God has gone to a higher level, and I'm continuing to grow in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. As a result of that, I’m grateful to God and more confident that He'll make it happen for me.

Hence, I've got so much to thank God for... So many wonderful blessings and so many open doors.... Even more than this, thank you Lord God Almighty for being who You are.

I've got so much to thank God for
So many blessings and so many open doors
A brand new mercy
Along with each new day
That's why I praise You
For this I give you praise

For waking me up this morning
That's why I praise You
For starting me on my way
That's why I praise You
For letting me see the sunlight of a brand new day
A brand new mercy along with each new day
That's why I praise You
For this I give You praise

For every mountain You brought me over
For every trial you've seen me through
For every blessing
Hallelujah for this I give you praise

That's My King - Do You Know Him?

For the Glory of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, He is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords Do You Know Him? Rev S.M. Lockridge

Death couldn't handle Him, and the grave couldn't hold Him. I wonder if you know Him?

Faith Works

Believing and receiving all of God's promises is, after salvation, the most essential step we must take in learning how to pray the promises.

Faith is the key ingredient for, as the scriptures tell us, "without Faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him" (Heb. 11:6). It is impossible to please God without faith.

When we come to Him in prayer, we must believe in Him, and we must also believe that He is ready to reward our Faith. Jesus said, " ...your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him" (Matt. 6:8).

This promise, along with the one we find in Philippians 4:19. "But my God shall supply all your needs according to his richest in glory by Christ Jesus," show us that God knows our needs and He will meet our needs. Our heavenly Father wants to bless us!

As we learn to pray God's promises we must remember: "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Heb. 11:1).

Praying the promises becomes effective when we pray with faith. Look at what Jesus said:
  • "If ye have FAITH as a grain of Mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove..." (Matt. 17:20)
  • "What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." (Mark 11:22-24)
  • "The prayer of Faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up." (James 5:15)
These prayer promises are directly from the lips of our Master, Jesus Christ. Notice how He elevates the powerful role of faith in prayer.

According to our Savior, nothing is impossible to a person of Faith. If we believe the promises of God when we pray them, Jesus says that we shall receive them. Indeed, all things are possible to a believer who trusts the promises of God. "For we walk by faith, not by sight" (2Cor. 5:7).

Don't Look Back—Face Forward

"No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back,

is fit for the Kingdom of God" (Luke 9:62).

The context is the challenge Jesus offers to one who wants to follow Him but first wants to say goodbye to home, family and friends.

Jesus is saying that the Kingdom isn't for "looking backers." The Kingdom is for those moving ahead.

This being "a spiritual exhortation for the hour" is the Lord's way of telling us to look ahead, not backward. I know people, perhaps you do too, who live their lives in the past. They live in regret, often sighing (as the one in Frost's poem) about choices they made.

"What would life have been like if I had chosen the other path?" They live in long-finished successes or failures, past relationships now broken or gone, finances lost or squandered. They long for "the good old days."

The Lord is encouraging us to face forward, not backward. Read more from the Elijah List...

Can You Reach My Friend

Do you have a friend that is on the road to nowhere, and you've been praying he'll get to know God before it's too late?

Be encouraged God hears your prayer and He will reach your friend. Just don't give up praying, because God is faithful and in His time will answer you.

Remember, Prayer can reach him quicker than you can.

Keep the Faith!!! It will work out in time.


This Mighty Woman of God is nothing short of Amazing!

This song just causes you to surrender all to the Lord Jesus Christ. I like the part that says, "When this life is through and I stand before you Lord, all the things that seem important won't matter any more, so mold me in your hands, into a vessel you can use."

The things of this world that we think are important and we hold so dear to us, are only going to last for a while, but only what is done for Christ in this world, is going to matter when this life is over and we stand before him.

Therefore, I determined to leave those things behind and press toward the mark for the prize of the High Calling of God. Listen to Helen Baylor as she sings "All of Me."
