Glory Seed Guidelines

Notice – The ministries featured in this section of TheologyWeb are guests of this site and in some cases not bargaining for the rough and tumble world of debate forums, though sometimes they are. Additionally, this area is frequented and highlighted for guests who also very often are not acclimated to debate fora. As such, the rules of conduct here will be more strict than in the general forum. This will be something within the discretion of the Moderators and the Ministry Representative, but we simply ask that you conduct yourselves in a manner considerate of the fact that these ministries are our invited guests. You can always feel free to start a related thread in general forum without such extra restrictions. Thank you.

These daily devotionals are brought to you by Gary Piper, a writer with our Sister Site, Natural Spirit Ministries. TheologyWeb encourages you to visit and support their site.... they have many informative articles which can be discussed right here. If you enjoy Gary Piper's devotionals, please send him an encouraging note or post. We are very appreciative of our partnership with Natural Spirit Ministries and look forward to many more co-ventures.

    A Planting of Faith Seeds for the Glory of the LORD
    Prayer is about getting God…

    The most important activity you need to engage in today is prayer. Writing on the importance of prayer in his first letter to the Thessalonians Paul penned, “Never stop praying.” I don’t think Paul means we need to pray non-stop 24/7 I think what he means is contained in chapter 4 Philippians.

    “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6–7, NLT)

    Paul understood that God was a part of his life from head to toe and everything in between he knew prayer was his lifeline to God. Experience taught Paul just because he asked God for something God was not obligated to give it to him but what God would give him was himself. Out of his prayer experience Paul was able to break it down to three steps: Tell God what you need… Thank him for what he’s done in your life… Experience God’s presence…

    My own experience with prayer has taught me: Out of our prayers come our experiences with God. That doesn’t mean each time we bow our heads and pray we are suddenly going to find ourselves enveloped in a mountain top experience with God. However, what it does mean is through the Holy Spirit God is present with us and it is God’s presence that is the answer to our prayers.

    There’s an important component of prayer that is often overlooked the component of prayer I am talking about is trust; trust that God will do what is right. Trust is that component of prayer that opens us up to God’s Peace. Trust is that component of prayer that assures us that with our “Amen” we can know that the work of God has just begun and God will see it to the end.

    Prayer isn’t about getting things – Prayer is about getting God!

    Believe it! Experience it!
    Grace and PEACE!

    And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19 NLT)

    Amen Gary!
    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)
