Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
Prayer is a priority; YESHUA, our example, often slipped away to spend quiet time with His FATHER. If the Son of GOD needed prayer time, then we surely can’t live a victorious life without it!
As we learned recently, we will become weary if we try to handle burdens alone.
When a person is drained spiritually, emotionally or physically, they become susceptible to discouragement!
Keeping the LORD at the center of one’s focus builds confidence. Without prayer and Bible reading (which cannot be separated), believers will enter a vicious cycle where disappointment is inevitable! Then loss of confidence is followed by doubt. But a believer immersed in prayer and Bible reading will find security in GOD’S power and presence!
Let us therefore come boldly in the throne of grace, that you may obtain mercy and find grace for help in time of need.
Forsaking prayer results in a downward slide! We need to go to the ABBA the FATHER, confess our lack of prayer and then make a priority of spending quiet time with Him. As we sit in His presence, He will make burdens light, offer encouragement and fill us with confidence.
Love & Blessings,
Bruce and Suzi Elman
