There is power in prayer!


So often we face people...
🌾who are too rebellious to give up harmful habits and addictions,
🌾who are too stubborn that they will not listen to good advice or instruction and refuse to be disciplined.
🌾who talk back rudely when you reach out in concern.
What do we do then? 
Time to look up to God in prayer.
Because...
"People may refuse our love, our good advice, reject our message, but they are defenseless against our prayers." 
SO LET'S PRAY!
In the last days we will confront difficult people but need to pray...them through!
🌺 2 Timothy 3 "But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—.."
Prayers will soften hard-hearts, humble the proud, quieten the restless and break stubborn habits and spirits and more!
Time to look to God!
Be blessed

Let us not encourage Gossip

If "A" tells us something negative about "B" let us not quickly believe "A" and form a negative opinion about "B". 
It is sad how easily we form our opinion of people from what we hear from others before even trying to get to know that person and trying to find out what the truth really is.
What we hear may not always be correct because they just may be repeating what they heard or felt. If truly concerned to sort out issues it is better to get "A" n "B" face to face and sort out issues.
For our eyes and ears may deceive us.
It's said..in 
 Proverbs 25:7b & 8a "....what you've seen with your eyes do not bring hastily to court....."
 Proverbs 25:9b " ...do not betray another man's confidence..."
