When my cat Boris is hungry, it does not matter if its day or night, I must feed him. Such was the case early this morning when he dragged me out of bed. As I stumbled my way into the kitchen, Boris continued to beg for his food. I began to ‘meow’ along with him to show how obnoxious it sounded. That did not help. So as I was opening the can, I told him, “You know its coming.” Immediately in my spirit, I heard the Holy Spirit gently remind me that I sometimes do the same thing.
Boris should know by now that I will supply all his needs. But he continues to beg. I wonder how many times I have canceled my prayers or undermined my own faith by continuing to ask and doubting my Heavenly Father.
God’s Word can be trusted. He cannot fail you. He loves you because He IS love. He will never let you down. Start thanking Him for the answer instead of fretting over the problem.
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
Hebrews 11:1 NLT
Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.
Mark 11:22-24 NLT
Here’s a quick update on what has changed within the Matney Woodard empire.
King’s Kid Stuff – A topical page on Gideon was added exploring the reluctant warrior’s victory over the Midianites. KKS has expanded into topical posts for popular verses and Bible chapters. Psalm 23 was the first in this series. Look for more in the coming months. To locate all the posts as they are added, use the drop down menu at the top of the middle column.
Matney Woodard Entertainment – The transfer of all files to the new format is complete. There are over 100 pages of children’s stories, songs, sermons, poems and Bible stories and lessons for your reading pleasure. Check them out when you have the chance. One of our latest additions is the story of Jesus healing the woman bowed by Satan: Woman, Thou Art Loosed From Thine Infirmity! Also, check out the dedicated pages for Christmas, Easter, Palm Sunday and Christian Stories for Halloween Season.
Don’t miss the Verse-o-matic at the top of the far right column. God’s Word is powerful and some of my favorite verses appear in that spot every time you refresh your page. This feature appears on both Matney Woodard and King’s Kid Stuff.
Harrison Woodard – My personal blog is another source to explore. You can find author commentary and some interesting blog posts such as some thoughts on Luke 13 – Jesus Heals A Bent Over Woman and Where Was God During 9/11?
