The bible tells us that we are to find our strength in Christ as followers, not in ourselves, not in any earthly thing. Philippians 4:13 tells us that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Isaiah 40:31 reminds us that if we wait upon the Lord that we shall renew our strength. Jesus is the strength of our heart, He is our strength who we should trust all day and every day of our lives as followers of Christ. Habakkuk 3:19 reads The Lord God is my strength, we are to trust completely in Him to take care of our needs and to deliver us from evil. Do not fear, do not foster a spirit of fear, when God has told you to do otherwise. Find strength in Christ Jesus whenever trouble comes around. If you place your strength in money, in friends, in family, in education, and other earthly things, you are bound to end up disappointed. When you place your faith and trust in Christ Jesus, you will never be disappointed. Jesus is there to take care of all of your needs, and as followers, He is our rock, our foundation, where we draw our strength in times of weakness, all day every day.Continue reading
The word Alpha means first, and Omega means last. God is the Alpha and the Omega. This means that Jesus is the first and the last. He knows the end from the beginning. When God calls Himself as the Alpha and the Omega in Revelation 1:8, 21:6 and 22:13, He means that He is the beginning and the end. He existed at the beginning of the universe, and He has no end. He, Himself is the end. Sounds funny! Yes, but that is the truth.Continue reading

As a Christian, it is important to turn to God in prayer all throughout the day, anytime, anywhere that you are. You can always turn to Christ and seek to renew your strength. If you are feeling confused or overwhelmed, know that God isn’t and that He is in control. He wants you to turn to Him and grow in faith through prayer regularly. In Matthew 7:7-8 it reads that we shall Ask, and it shall be given you, seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. God wants you to turn to Him to meet your needs, continue walking in faith and trusting that He will meet your needs and give you just what you need. If you are not sure about your path, that is okay, because God is sure; turn to Him and acknowledge Him in all of your ways. Engaging in prayer daily is the best way to grow in that relationship with Christ and we can use daily prayer for guidance through our lives. Matthew 21:22 reads that all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. That doesn’t mean that we are going to get anything and everything that we want, but whatever is in His will for us to have; believe that He will meet that need for you. And if it isn’t in His will for you to have it, you don’t need it anyways.Continue reading
Most people love the verse Luke 5:16 as it shows that like all of us, Jesus needed a break from His busy life in order to recharge His batteries and take time to spend with His loving Father. The life of Christ had the intention of helping us draw lessons on how to make a prayer for encouragement and strength, just as Jesus did. Even if Jesus was God incarnate, He never used his superpowers to help Him in facing various life challenges. When He was burdened or exhausted, or needed spiritual refreshment, He slipped away to make a prayer plugging in purpose, perception, and power that is only found in the presence of God.
These are the critical things that will be of help to you in developing a more powerful prayer in your life. They will help make this a praying year.Continue reading
