When we are afflicted, suffering, or in trouble, God tells us what we should do: come before His presence and pray. Why? For one thing, it may just be that God will remove that problem because of our prayers. That is not to say that God will always take away our afflictions, suffering, or troubles; but sometimes He does.
So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. —2 Corinthians 4:18 NLT“I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” —Luke 2:14 NKJV The “Unsung Hero” of the Christmas Story When you set up your nativity set for the Christmas season, one of the figures that is often not noticed, or is put off to one side, is Joseph.
Sometimes it seems we face more than we can handle. Have you ever had a "why me, why now" moment? On Thursday’s edition of A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie talks about the hard roads of life and how putting our faith in God can give us hope in hopeless situations.All Sermons by Greg Laurie
