The Word of the Day: Facing The Giants, The Last Brick Layer in America and The Circle Maker


brick layerfacing the giantsLast night I did something I rarely do! I got to watch 2 movies at home, Facing The Giants and The Last Brick Layer in America. Very inspirational movies, I think I could watch facing Your Giants hundred’s of times, the more I think of it, the same can be said for The Last Brick Layer in America !Both these movies really inspired me in my faith in God. Both movies dealt with fear.

I really encourage you to watch those two movies!

Did you know that in God’s Word He tells us 365 times: Do Not Fear!

In his book, The Circle Maker, Mark Batterson writes: After you pray through, you need to praise through. You need to quit asking God to do something and start praising Him for what he already has done. Prayer and praise are both expressions of faith, but praise is a higher dimension of faith. Prayer is asking God to do something future tense; praise is believing that God has already done it, past tense.

Batterson continues….Before you write this off as some “name it, claim it” scheme, let me remind you that God cannot be bribed or blackmailed. God doesn’t do miracles to satisfy whims. God does miracles for one reason and one reason alone: to spell His glory. We just happen to be the beneficiaries.

After I read that by Batterson I went to Matthew 6:8, The Word of God says: Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him. Amen!
