It's easy to life a pure holy life, isn't it? If you are like Barbara, you will find the truth. Listen to her share further on "Revival" in this edition of "Grace Notes".
If God were to write a summary statement of your life, what would it say?
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 and sure; it can never fail you. So, my soul, see that you have a PROMISE underneath thee, for then your waiting will be RESTING and a FIRM FOOTHOLD, for your hope will give you CONFIDENCE in Him who has said, ‘They shall not be ashamed that wait for Me.’” Psalm 37:7a says… Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him. Let’s continue now as our host Barbara Sandbek introduces our topic again with a fitting song.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We’re in the studio now where the Sandbek family is in the middle of a discussion on our next topic –Heaven.Want to join in? OK, then, let’s see what’s on their mind.
The phrase ‘the Glory of God’ represents many things – the essential quality of God’s character, His righteousness, and His presence. In fact, someone once described it as ‘all his attributes summed up into one and then raised to the nth power’. His Glory is also His worthiness. Everything about Him testifies that He is worthy to receive praise, honor, and respect. When we ascribe Glory to God it is a form of affirmation, praise, and thanksgiving.
We’ve caught someone doing things RIGHT and we want you to hear about it.
What are the signs that true revival has taken place? Is it just because someone says they are revived? Is it possible to rob God?
"One of the most fascinating things I ever learned in math was the meaning of ‘infinity’. Somehow, I knew innately that there was such a thing, even before it was described. Why? Because our soul . . ."
