Substance or Assurance (re-hash)

Thursday, November 17th, 2005

I guess the bottom line is how you view faith. Is it really faith when you practice positive thinking. In many cases I have heard people confessing a positive outcome based on the scriptures. I wonder if God had witnessed with their spirit that what they are thinking is going to come to pass. With positive thinking you take hope and speak. Yet if there is no witness it may be simply presumption, faith’s dangerous cousin.
is faith the substance of things hoped for…
is faith the assurance of things hoped for…
Positive thinking is based on the substance.
I believe true confession comes from the assurance.

Not feeling well

Every once and a while a little bug comes along and puts my wife and I on the sick list. Been that way for about a week or so. Silly me, I didn’t think to ask people if they would pray for Linda and I. We are likely over the worst of it but we still could use your prayers to make the recovery full and quick.

I am leaving this entry open to public comment. Would anyone like to see a prayer request page? Do you have a prayer request?
