Verse of the Day Q&A: The Importance Of Persistent Prayer

12 Rejoice in hope; be patient in affliction; be persistent in prayer.

-Romans 12:12 HCSB

Have you ever found yourself in a difficult situation, where it challenged your faith? In the Book of Romans Chapter 12 verse 12, it says that prayer in a persistent manner will give you the strength to see you through.

Think back at a time where prayer was all you had and you saw the hand of God rescued you. After that experience, what does prayer, time spent with the Lord mean to you?

Verse of the Day Q&A: Have You Decided To Enter Into God’s Protection?

Psalms 91:1-2

As for you, the one who lives in the shelter of the Most High, and resides in the protective shadow of the Sovereign One— 2 I say this about the Lord, my shelter and my stronghold, my God in whom I trust


Bible

Trusting God means to make Him your shelter and to live in His shadow which protects you by blocking evil things headed your way. 

A stronghold means to be surrounded by a thick and high wall that keeps the enemy from reaching you. 

God is those things to those who choose to trust Him with their lives.

  • Have you made Jesus your refuge?
  • What is keeping you from trusting in Jesus Christ?
  • Are you reading the Bible to know about Jesus or from some other sources?

Verse of the Day Q&A: As A Christian, What Gear Are You On?

Luke 9:62

But Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”


Bible

When a person gets saved, it is like receiving a new vehicle with only one gear “D” forward, there is no going back or apostatizing for a person with the Holy Spirit.

1. The “R” reverse means to go back to one sinful lifestyle.
2. The “N” neutral means to be a lukewarm Christian, political correctness or having some traits of the world and of Christ, like oil and water which does not mix.
3. The “P” park means that the believer is stagnant in his or her spiritual growth being in great danger.

  • What type of car are you in?
  • Is your car from the world or from the Lord?
  • What gear are you driving now?
