Waiting- the results of not waiting

Waiting is never an easy thing to do, but it is part of life, and useful for our spiritual growth. Susannah Spurgeon, the wife of Charles Spurgeon, counseled her own heart while waiting with these words: “The Lord has strewn the pages of God’s Word with promises of blessedness to those who wait for Him. And remember, His slightest Word stands fast…read more

The benefits of waiting on/for the Lord

The ability to wait patiently for something has always been an admirable trait. Joseph had to wait while suffering in enslavement for 13 years before he was made Pharaoh’s top official. David had to wait for 15 years before he was made King – all the time hiding from King Saul’s murderous exploits against him. The disciples waited in the upper room for 10 days for the Holy Spirit to descend upon them. Each of their patient waiting yielding a great blessing. Are YOU willing to wait for a blessing? Stay tuned as our host, Barbara Sandbek, shares some of the benefits of waiting on the Lord.

How to pray - the attitude of prayer

God has much to say about prayer. In fact, He commanded that we pray. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says that we are to pray continually, and Philippians 4:6 exhorts us to pray in every situation. On our last program, we learned that… We are to pray to our Father, God, in the Name of Jesus.. We are not to babble.. We are not to pray so others with be impressed.. We must pray with faith believing that God will answer.. We must pray with a clean heart so as not to hinder our communication... We should pray according to God’s will so that our prayers will be answered ‘yes’. In this program, Barbara Sandbek will explore the Scriptures for a further understanding of how to pray and what to pray for.

How to pray - What to pray about..

Much has been written on the subject of prayer. Perhaps it’s because it seems somewhat mysterious. There’s no specific method and no guaranteed outcome. Why should we pray, then? Is it just to get what we want, or to change God’s mind about something? No…it is to fulfill one of mankind's’ greatest needs – to have fellowship with our Creator. On our program today, Barbara Sandbek, will explore the Scripture to see how we can pray more effectively.

Making a new start

The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 2:2…”I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” This knowledge allowed him to endure the many sufferings he received in his ministry, and still write heartfelt instructions from his experiences that even we follow today. Resolutions are good things to make as long as we rely on the direction of the Lord to DEFINE them and His strength to KEEP them. On our program today, Barbara Sandbek will discuss how we can determine what makes a Godly resolution.

The Christmas story lives on in you!

This is the last program in our Christmas story presentation. We’ve seen that God chose people who were, young, old, lowly, elite, and even peculiar, to play the roles. The common thread was that they were willing and ready. The beauty of the Christmas story is not just that Jesus CAME to earth, but WHY He came. Listen and hear more…

The Christmas Story

We hope you’ve enjoyed the Christmas Story these past few programs and that you’ve taken time to read it for yourself. On our last program, Barbara Sandbek told of the events that led up to the birth of Christ and described the surroundings in which the Savior of the world was born. Today, she will talk about the support players, and continue with the reading of the Christmas story.

What did Mary know?

On our last program, Barbara Sandbek began a series on the Christmas Story. She talked about some of the players and their roles. We learned that God’s ways are not our ways and that He chooses people to do His work, based on Godly character, rather than on outward appearance or status in life. Today, Barbara will continue with the other players, and begin the reading of the Christmas story.

The season to be busy?

HO HO HO 'Tis the season to be jolly! From the day after Thanksgiving, until the 25th of December, everybody is HAPPY. We hear Christmas music, shop 'til we drop, go to parties and attend performances. Then on the 26th of December, it's ALL OVER. We're left with un-decorating, bills, extra pounds, and even illness because we ate and partied too much. All this for one day! Christmas should really be in our hearts, EVERY day of the year! So...how can we prevent ourselves from being caught up in all of this? By focusing on the true meaning of Christmas. On this Grace Notes program, Barbara Sandbek is going to do just that. She'll begin a series on the Christmas Story, and bring out some interesting points you may not have considered. So prepare to be blessed - and don't miss a single broadcast as she unfolds the event with a Christmas song...

Just say 'thanks'!

God gave mankind the finest gift that could EVER be given. He SAW our need before we knew it and before we even asked. We were living our lives apart from Him, but God’s heart LONGED for our fellowship, so He commended His love to us through the gift of His Son, Jesus. Jesus STRETCHED OUT His hands on the cross to give us God’s love. He died and rose from the grave, to pay the penalty for our sin against God and to provide reconciliation. When we accept this gift, we have fellowship with God. What greater gift could we possibly want? On this Grace Notes program, our host Barbara Sandbek will talk about how we should respond to this great gift.

Taking a stand - part 6

When our faith turns to sight, we need to be careful not to become overconfident and take credit for the outcome. Moses was not allowed to enter the Promised Land because he insinuated that both he and God would bring water from the rock. Hezekiah fell prey to pride after he became successful. He bragged of 'his' riches and showed them to the pagan kings - who eventually overtook his kingdom. How did Daniel handle the miracle he received from God?
