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.

    Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise
    No prayer goes unanswered…

    “I praise you, Lord, for answering my prayers. You are my strong shield, and I trust you completely. You have helped me, and I will celebrate and thank you in song.” (Psalm 28:6–7, CEV)

    No prayer goes unanswered! No prayer falls on deaf ears! God answers prayers! I don’t know about you but the most frustrating prayer is one that ends in silence. You pour your heart out to God, you exercise every bit of faith you can muster up, and you present a logical plea only to hear nothing. And you begin questioning does God answer prayers for everyone but me? The answer of course is God answers prayers, every prayer uttered by every prophet in the bible was answered, every prayer uttered by every one of Jesus’ followers was answered, every prayer is answered because God answers prayers. Take for instance when Jesus prayed that God might take the “cup” of his crucifixion away from him it was answered with silence and the crucifixion.

    Recently Patti and I facing a difficult decision prayed hard over a 3 day period only to hear nothing from heaven. Because a decision had to be made and with seemingly no direction from heaven we made it. And now in retrospect we wonder was if it was the right decision and because of the all the factors involved the outcome will play itself out in time but whether it was the right decision or not is based not on God’s answer to our prayer but on what we knew from the scriptures. There are times when God’s silence in response to a prayer is no as in the case of Jesus’ prayer to be spared his horrible death. And there are other times when God remains silent because we already know what his will is thus we know how we should go and proceed.

    Experience has taught me (at a high price) there is a right way, a wrong way, and God’s way. And the unique thing about God’s way is there are times when God’s way seems to be the wrong way by worldly standards. Every response to following God’s way whether it seems right or wrong must be carried out with Faith in God (FIG).

    Believe! Anticipate! Experience! Be transformed!
    Grace and PEACE, Amen!

    Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13 LEB)

    Amen Crusty!
    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)
