Christian Living

Beeda Speis’ daily devotional-type posts which often include her thoughts and feelings on a certain subject. Each post features a Bible verse of the day and suggestions for prayer.

Each week, beginning on Monday, she chooses the main theme and finds related Bible verses which she shares in her FaceBook prayer group, Pray In The Stillness (formerly 7th Hour Prayer Power). Come along beside her to pray together on a specific topic, need, or group of people.

She asks everyone to set aside time to be still and focus all of their attention on their conversation with God, talking to Him but also listening.

I believe that through the power of prayer, we can draw closer to our Father, glorify Him, and make a difference in the lives of others.

The Lord is the Spirit

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17 ESV What does having this type of freedom mean? It means that all we had to do was accept the free gift of salvation from our heavenly Father. We accepted it with our hearts and …

Christ Has Set Us Free

Hallelujah! Christ has set us free. Until Jesus sacrificed Himself for our sins, we were slaves to sin. As slaves, we were far removed from our Master, our Father in Heaven. We had no hope. We did not have the Holy Spirit living within. Now that we have all of these wonderful blessings as a …

Memorial Day 2022

As you know, today* is a day when we remember and commemorate those who’ve given their lives so that we can be free. We honor the servicemen and women who died protecting and defending our country. They sacrificed themselves for you and for me. Let us not lose sight of that today as we go …

God’s Word is Like a Fire

I’ve heard that the Bible makes little to no sense to the unbeliever. It takes the presence of the Holy Spirit within the reader to bring the words alive. It also takes the urging of the Holy Spirit to prompt us to dig deeper into Scripture. Once we “get it,” God’s word will be like …

Converting the Soul

I was reading through several passages last night concerning Scripture and this particular passage really spoke to me. It actually warmed my heart, especially David’s words, “converting the soul.” God’s word does that, doesn’t it? Whatever negative feelings we’re experiencing, when we read Scripture, we’re transformed. Each line is speaking about Scripture: the law, testimony, …

Meditate On It

Speak God’s word. Meditate on it day and night. Do what is written. Then we will be equipped to prosper and succeed, not necessarily as the world measures prosperity and success, but in our ability to accomplish God’s will. After all, if God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31) Bible Verse …

The Bible is a Living Document

This passage in Hebrews flat out tells us that the Bible is a living document; it discerns our thoughts and the intent of our hearts. God uses Scripture to communicate with us. Every time I read the Bible, I glean something new, something that speaks to me personally. If you want to experience the word …

The Bible is God’s Living Word

Someone asked on social media, “When you get to Heaven, what’s the one burning question you’ll ask Jesus?” So many of us responded that we ask our questions now, and He answers. Why wait? The Bible is God’s living word. He speaks to us through it. Jesus’ death and resurrection tore the veil so we …

Discontent

John Steinbeck wrote a novel in 1961 titled, The Winter of our Discontent. The basis of the book is the “moral decline” within the U.S. This was in the 60s. I imagine today, this book would be even more relevant. Has anyone read it? Amazon included the top three sentences that Kindle users highlighted in …

Suicide

Today, let’s pour out our hearts for those people who are so discontent with their lives, with the world, that they contemplate suicide. It’s like they’ve fallen into an empty well. There are no apparent means of escape, so they just sit in the mud and muck and sink deeper and deeper into their hole. …
