Have you ever prayed, but seemingly didn’t get an answer? This is a big deal and an important question that many Christians experience: Why aren’t my prayers answered? 

Often, when we feel as though God did not answer our prayer, we get discouraged, cynical or mad. We tend to blame God for not answering our prayers the way we wanted Him to. But, are there Bible reasons some prayers don’t seem to get answered? Yes. 

Today, let’s exp...

Welcome to our brand new series on the basics of PRAYER! I’m so excited to share this series with you because I believe in the power of prayer…and more importantly, I believe that God wants to answer your prayers! But first, it’s important that we know how to pray effectively and according to God’s Word. 

Jesus said in John 16:24… “ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” Prayer should result in receiving what you pra...

The Bible tells us in Psalm 33:1, “Let the godly sing FOR joy…” Whoa! That’s interesting…instead of waiting to sing when I already have joy, instead I am supposed to sing FOR joy? 


Sadly too many people — make that too many Christians — are not experiencing the joy that the Lord intended for us! But don’t let that be said of you. You can live a joyful life with God — and it may start with making a joyful noise!

God invented music! It’s His thing — and I believe He wants us to access the power of music in our spirit, soul and body…especially in times that require comfort! The last two years have been massively challenging for all of us, in many different ways, and I believe today the Lord wants you to experience His comfort in a fresh way.

The Bible has a lot to say about our happiness! In fact, if you add up all of the commands like “sing!”, “rejoice!”, and “be joyful” into the same “happiness” category — as Christians, it’s definitely something we are expected to do and be! 


But, in a world that is full of bad news, heaviness, fear and confusion, how do we keep ourselves happy and cheered up? We have to live under the right influence!

Instead of being “drunk w...

Do you need a breakthrough in your life? The Bible is loaded with examples and stories of people who were in the same boat — they needed a major breakthrough in the midnight hour. So what do all of those Bible stories have in common? 


Many of the major breakthroughs in the Bible shared the same key: the breakthrough came with SINGING! Yes, singing! I’ve said it before, but Heaven likes music. 

There’s something about praising G...

The Bible tells us in Proverbs 4:23 to “guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” We all know — and quote — this verse, but have you ever thought about it in the context of the music you listen to? 

Maybe today you are experiencing fear, anxiety, stress or a sense of rebellion. What’s the remedy? Guard your heart! And instead of listening to music that feeds those feelings, choose to tap into Heav...

The Bible talks about “the fight of faith.” Sometimes when we are experiencing sickness or receive a bad doctor’s report, our mind will be bombarded with negative thoughts while our body is experiencing physical symptoms. This is when it’s more important than ever to know deep down in our spirit what God has promised for our health. This is where faith comes in! 

If you experience anxiety, fear, concern or worry when it comes to yo...

    In Numbers 6:22-26, God gave us the most incredible blessing! This common passage is known by lots of names: “The Aaronic Prayer,” “The Priestly Blessing,” and “The Lifting of Hands Blessing.” 

    No matter what you call it, The Blessing is just as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago. God has declared that you and I are blessed!

    The Bible is loaded with wisdom and “commands” that are designed to help us walk in the FULL promises of God...including health in our bodies! Today, let’s take a look at a few of those scriptures. When we do things God’s way — like guard our hearts, walk in love, stay humble and more — it will help us to avoid the dis-ease that comes when we aren’t in alignment with His Word.

    The Lord’s Prayer is a popular one! Unfortunately, so often, we pray or sing the Lord’s Prayer simply from memory or as a rote prayer. But, Jesus had something else in mind entirely when he taught his disciples how to pray in Matthew 6:9-13! 

    Think about the first few words of the famous passage, “After this manner, pray.” “This manner” is intended to be an OUTLINE. Jesus was teaching us to use the Lord’s Prayer as a template, a gu...

    The Bible mentions “fight the good fight of faith…” in 1 Timothy 6:12, but what does that mean and what does it look like? Sometimes when you’re in a battle to lay hold of God’s promises for your life — including your health — you have to fight. 

    Let’s talk about how we do it! What weapons has God given us? What does the Bible tell us to do when we face a fight for our faith?

    Psalm 103 tells us to “forget not all His benefits…” You read that right. When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, God generously and graciously gives you an incredible benefits package — better than any employer could give!

    Most of us understand that Jesus went to the cross to pay the penalty of death for our sins so that we could be redeemed, forgiven and fully reconciled to the Father. But is that all that happened in that great exchange?
