Have you ever prayed to God and felt He didn’t answer your prayer? I’ve always heard it said that God does answer prayers, and He does so by saying, “Yes,” “No,” or “Wait awhile.” That may be true, but the fact remains that some prayers are simply not granted. Why is that? We’ll try to find the answer in today’s episode.
One of the outstanding things about both the Old and New Testaments is the number of short sentences which grab our attention and say so much in so few words. One of those examples is found in the book of Nehemiah, chapter 8, verse 10, where Ezra the priest told the people, “For the joy of the Lord is your strength.” This may be one of the most striking sentences of the entire Bible. Why Ezra said it and why we should believe it is the topic of today’s episode, simply called, “The Strength of Joy.”
Today, we are engaged in a battle, well underway, in which one army is against God and everything Christian...from the killing of little babies to the promotion of homosexuality and an attempt to take God out of every place and everything. We are not sufficient, alone and apart from God, to overcome this enemy. But we can win the battle, because, as David said, "The battle is the Lord's." That's the topic of today's GOD'S EVERLASTING WORD podcast.
Many people obey the gospel…but, just like the children of Israel, fewer remain faithful, even in light of such passages as Matthew 10:22, which says, "He that endureth to the end shall be saved." Or Revelation 2, verse 10, which has Jesus saying, "Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life." And when we see the dangers of unfaithfulness, I think all of us might need to ask ourselves, "Can the Lord call me faithful?" That's the topic of today's GOD'S EVERLASTING WORD podcast.
