Running To Win

When The Answer Is Disguised, Part 2 of 2 (The Triumph Of Unanswered Prayer)

October 28, 2021

When God answers prayer in ways we don’t expect, we’re reminded that we need Him more than the answers. We must make sure our relationship with God is strong, realizing that knowing Him is more vital than getting what we want.

When You’ve Been Wronged
Conflict in relationships is inevitable, but healing and reconciliation often is not. Time and again we've tried every option and failed, and all we are left with is a load of guilt and pain. Pastor Erwin Lutzer shows how the blessing the Lord gives to those who suffer unjustly is worth the pain involved. He also illustrates the need to leave our broken relationships in the hands of God and move forward in our lives toward freedom.
