Since the formation of America God has always gone before us, stood beside us and protected our back. Sadly, just like nations of old in the Bible, America often gets prideful and offers God the cold shoulder. We stop turning to Him, thinking we know better than He does in regards to living.
But a short tally of our “living” seems to indicate an immediate need to call on Him by name: Continue reading
I’ll shout it from the rooftops – “God is zeroth to me!”
If I called my best friend zeroth she might think it was an insult – demeaning and abusive language (she would actually think I was being silly and making up a word but go with me on this). The point is most people do not know what zeroth means. I had never heard of the word until last week when I was googling more attribute words for God that start with the letter Z. Continue reading
Just like you desire respect from others for the lifetime of positive actions or achievements you make, God desires respect because of all that He is.

1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Just like your best friend loves to hear how you are doing and what your needs are, God, though omniscient in His eternal loving manner, still desires us to tell Him about our lives. This includes being thankful in all things while presenting our wants and concerns.
During this election season the need for Christians to follow God’s will of prayer is crucial. Continue reading
