Only Believe – S3-DE4

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Hebrews 11:6 (NIV), says: 

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” 

Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)

When I was younger my dad would have my older sister and me sit at the kitchen table to read Bible verses. I didn’t quite understand what I read in scripture, but I believed God was real. And I believed in Jesus. 

As I grew older, I began to see things happen in my life that I couldn’t quite explain. Things I hoped for began to happen for me.  

I didn’t quite grasp at that time that God knew the secret petitions of my heart, and most importantly—He knew me! 

Nothing was kept from Him and everything was right in front of Him. He cared about whatever concerned me.

Pressure Applied Prayer – S3E3

In general, most people have experienced or are experiencing some type of pressure. Hence, the need for this episode, Pressure Applied Prayer. Now, before going any further the educator in me wants to make sure we are all on the same page. Because the word ‘pressure’ has several different meanings. 

Photo 1 White woman sitting in front of computer trying to work while surrounded by her children and pet cat. Photo 2 Black woman sitting in front of computer with her hands in the prayer position. Both pics represent the message--Pressure Applied Prayer. Because when under great pressure, applied prayer is the best way to get direction and peace.

So, for this post, the pressure we are referring to means burdens of physical or mental distress. No doubt, we can all agree, the COVID-19 pandemic put families around the world under a great deal of pressure. For me, I could not go through the pressures of life without pressing back with prayer.  

Apply prayer to every situation 

Have you ever heard the phrase “Prayer changes things?” I am a witness; I know prayer works. You see, I know for a fact that when I pray, God always hears me. And He has shown me as such, time and time again throughout my life.

God Knows What We NEED —S3-DE3

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Romans 8:26-28 (NLT) says: 

And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.” 

“And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will. 

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” 

Romans 8:26-28 (NLT)

Who among you likes for things to always go your way? 

We all have at some point in our lives. I know I’ve had my seasons of asking God to do things—my way. Unfortunately, there’s a problem with—my way.  The problem lies with our limited knowledge of what’s ahead.  

But, Father God, being All-knowing, has the foreknowledge of what’s best for our lives. God knows what we need.  

And in, Romans chapter 8, verses 26-28, we find Apostle Paul teaching a valuable lesson. We don’t know what to pray, but the Holy Spirit does. We need to live with His leading—even in prayer.
