Pray for One Another

When we pray for one another, we’re asking God to work. We’re also serving one another, bearing one another’s burdens, and loving one another (see Galatians 5:13, 6:2; 1 Peter 1:22).

Praying for one another helps us forgive and be at peace with one another (see Ephesians 4:32, Mark 9:50).

Pray for one another (James 5:16).

A Throne of Grace

Paul approached God’s throne, and the Lord answered “My grace is all you need (2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT).”

Eleven years later, Paul, or someone who knew his story, wrote this, “Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16 ESV).”

God’s throne is a throne of grace because that’s what we can be certain God will give when we pray.

When Walking Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death

If you are saved* you do not need to be afraid to die.

Walking through the valley of the shadow of death with the Good Shepherd is part of everyone’s life journey. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me (Psalm 23:4).

*For by grace you have been saved, through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is a gift of God (Ephesians 2:8).

What if God asked you what he asked Job?

I read Job 38-40 as though God were speaking to me. I was silenced and overwhelmed by God’s greatness.

Here’s some of what God asked:
Where you there when I laid the foundations of the earth (Job 38:4)?
Have you ever commanded the morning to appear (Job 38:12)?
Do you know where the gates of death are located (Job 38:17)?
Are you as strong as G
od (Job 40:9)?

What is your response?
