Wisdom: A gift from God for those who ask in faith

God desires for all His children to increase in wisdom. That being so, God won’t withhold wisdom from anyone who asks in faith. Why would He? God wants us to draw nearer to Him and wisdom brings us closer into His presence, because wisdom is grounded in faith and reverence of God. But we must trust Him and believe that He grants good things to those who ask.

The Believer’s Prayer from Acts 4 – Extracting powerful prayer principles

In Acts 4:23-31, the account is recorded of a church praying together and, after they prayed, “the place where they were meeting was shaken.” God visually showed His approval of their prayer. In this study, powerful prayer principles are extracted from their example that can more attune your heart with God and, consequently, enhance your prayer life.

Yes, the biblical account of creation in six days is important

It’s important to accept the biblical account of creation in six days as truth. First, to discount the record of creation in Genesis is to challenge the inerrancy of God’s Word. Next, to doubt the earth was created in six days will corrode your confidence that when Christ returns, all in Christ will be changed in the “twinkling” of an eye. And, the Bible tells us that this present creation will pass away and God will immediately create new heavens and a new earth. Those things will be instantaneous. So, your belief about the beginning of days directly corresponds to your assurance for the end of days.

Jesus revealed in the book of Job

Job lived before any of the 66 books of the Bible had been written. Even so, Job had some insight into how God would provide for man’s salvation. Job knew God’s salvation would come through One who was worthy to intercede between God and man. Job knew this man would be a Redeemer, provided by God, and would be put up as security to save man.
