Praising is Power Exodus 17:10 ? 14
?So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of the hill.? As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning.?When Moses? hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up?one on one side, one on the other?so that his hands remained steady till sunset.? So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.

If someone asked you if you were driven by fear you’d probably say “No!?” But when you stop to consider what’s truly behind your insecurities, desire to control, and inability to fully trust God with your daily life – you’ll discover you are… Fear-Driven!
I don’t like it either, after all, the last thing I want to consider part of my life is fear. I’m an independent woman, one that likes to plan and organize (i.e. control). I’d like people to consider me a brave woman and faithful follower of Christ. However, the more I look at myself, the more I More >
No matter the size of the structure, the foundation is critical to the quality and longevity of the building.

Does this prayer sound familiar to you?
Lord, I can?t take anymore. I?m shattered. I have nothing else in this world but You. I?m begging you to stop this pain and heartache. Please help me.
For three years I pleaded with God to change my circumstances. Ironically, with each desperate cry my suffering escalated: the pain worsened, my health deteriorated, and the isolation intensified.
From the outside it seemed as though the Lord ignored my prayers. But, deep in my heart I knew the truth. As horrible as my life was, I was absolutely certain that the Sovereign God of Creation was More >
Thanksgiving Day has come and gone, but I’m still thinking about all Jesus has done for me. Just over a year ago I was suffering horrible pain and could hardly walk. But in the span of one year, the Lord has transformed my life, yet again. As I lay in my bed last night, drifting off to sleep, I thought of all the blessings God has granted me:
- Physical relief–The most dramatic part of this year has been my restored health. The Lord has given me a break from the constant pain and has allowed me to walk again. I More >
