Prayer and the Word

Beeda Speis posts to her blog every day, but some days, due to time constraints or writer’s block, all she can share is a prayer and the word. Somedays, it may just be a Bible verse or passage.

It’s her prayer that the Bible verse will be the exact one that a reader needs to read at the exact time the reader needs to read it. God’s sovereignty is over all things, and all things work to bring Him glory.

It’s through prayer and being in the word that we draw closer to God. Taking that time to be still and focus only on Him allows us to build a more intimate relationship with our Father.

Have Not Love

Often when I’m struggling with something, God will give me a passage to help me through, especially if I feel “stuck”–as in, I can’t let go of the feeling or situation. Yesterday I was angry with someone and even though I prayed about it repeatedly and before bed, I woke up thinking about the incident. …

Inherit The Kingdom

Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; …

Focus on Serving

New Feature: Listen to today’s post Read Today’s Post: God is good. He is so very good. When I take things to Him, He responds. He answers me. As you know, there’s this platform-building burden. At the end of every month, I write down all my numbers, followers, engagements, etc., and compare them to the …

Practice Righteousness

Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. Little children, …

Pray about everything

This is the home screen of my phone. I keep it there as a constant reminder to pray about everything (Philippians 4:6). Yet, I forget to do that, believe it or not. Whenever I have a lot of God-related plans (ie plans on how I’ll get things done that God has placed on my heart) …

War Arose in Heaven

Another one of Satan’s falls occurs in the future; sometime during the tribulation period when war arose in Heaven. It explains the scene I picture when I read from Luke 10:18, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” Bible Verse of the Day And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought …

An Angel of Light

For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds. 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 ESV

He Shall Bruise Your Head

Satan deceived Eve. She allowed herself to be deceived. Then she shared her sin with her husband, who willingly sinned against God. As a result, we are all under the curse, (Genesis 3:14-19) the penalty of which is death. But, God knew all of this would take place and had a plan for our redemption …

Ephesians 4:20-32

Ephesians 4:20-32 NKJVBut you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, …

The Spirit Gives Life

Then what if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. But there are some of you who do not believe.” (For Jesus …
