Spiritual Sundays

singing birds

Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.
Mark 11:24

Commentary:One qualification appears here upon the very surface, namely, that a realizing expectation should always go with a firm faith-"believe that ye receive them." Not merely believe that "ye shall" but believe that "ye do" receive them- count them as if they were received, reckon them as if you had them already, and act as if you had them-act as if you were sure you should have them-"believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them."
Charles Haddon Spurgeon

A world of thanks and appreciation belongs to Charlotte and Ginger, who week after week, bring us all together under the Spiritual Sundays banner.

Oh, we need to hear this often, Lisa. Our prayers are being lifted up to Almighty God, who has the power to change our lives, yet we offer Him a meager "maybe" kind of prayer...maybe He will, but I know He won't. I need to remember that nothing is impossible for Him to accomplish. There are two huge needs in my family that I honestly can't say I believe He will heal, but I am praying that He will increase my faith to believe!

God bless,
