Is it sometimes when we need an answer, it's quiet, silent, we may assume that, but we do not know the mind of Adoni G d. The God we love might be saying, "Be Patient", like listening to a song, in a different language, not understanding the heart of God at the time.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefor if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away, behold all things are become new.
REligion vs. Relationship
Heres an example. REligion seems to be the logic of the mind. We all this as being normal. There are times that this logic needs to be turned off, and the spiritual mind of Christ to be tuned into. For the mind of Christ is life and peace, but the mind of the flesh, carnal is death, bible verse.
AT times faith dosn't function, and there might be the atheist in the church.


Not believing God has healed a marriage, or a physical problem, or a emotional situation, or man's mental stability. This scripture says, we are new creatures, a new creation, in Christ Jesus. This truth exposes, it is wrong to Judge someone from the past, and insist it is a continuance which it is only man's judgments, and his lack of faith of what our Great and Mighty Awesome God does, in a life, he has taken and recreated. Religion, is the Pharisees crossing the other side of the street, where the hurting man, is, it is slandering another's character, and to the Jewish teaching, it is a verbal assassination of the person character. God is also faithful, the work he has started, as the potter, upon his clay, he will finish it and it shall be the golden vessel unto his honor. God is able . :) Happy Monday. Don't forget to pray for C Chat.

What is a church to some. Jesus said, it shall be called A house of Prayer.
Praying takes faith. The logic, and the one who dosn't believe in a God, seems to be lacking faith, for faith, is believing something that is not seen. It is not done with the logical or the human eyes, but the spiritual ones.
The best thing someone is able to do to help another, is to pray for that person. We as humans think that our human hands can go and do the things only the hands of the Holy Spirit could, as the word is the sword that cuts asunder between, the soul, and the spirit. House of prayer, is not a place of putting Faith, aside, and trying using other methods, taking the place of an almighty Creator and God. WE truly are the dust of God's creations, and putting confidence in mere man, or doing things that seem right in one's understanding, is not scriptural, for this verse; " Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto thy own understanding." To trust is to know he is here,for us, near and very dear, he loves us, "for without faith, it is impossible to please the Lord God. " bible quotes; Matthew 21:13 Proverbs 3:5 Hebrews 11:6

Exodus 14:25 He jammed the wheels of their chariots so that they had difficulty driving, and the Egyptians said, "Lets get away from these Israelites, For Their God is fighting for them."

9 They were just trying to intimidate us, imagining that they could discourage us and stop the work. So I continued the work with even greater determination.

The Holy Bible says the devil is a liar, he speaks his own native tongue. Their is no truth in him. For he was a liar from the very beginning .

8 I replied, “There is no truth in any part of your story. You are making up the whole thing.”

Taking a physical position to pray, is a matter of one's preference, and choice, and comfortability. There have been some even praying under a table.
The emphasis of the above; Hebrews 4:16 is { Take your position before the Throne of God. Spiritually, in confidence and boldness, on the front line.} Straighten up the loins of your mind, [1Peter 1:13} what ever the war, don't buckle, or take an ease, of stance spiritually, for surely the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak, { Matthew 26:41} lay to pray, but stay on the front to pray before the Throne, in faith believing, and the peace of God shall guard your heart, and your mind. Philippians 4:7

The good Samaritan story reminds me of this story, I've seen and felt. A person drove past a girl sitting on a bench in a park, with a open wound about 7 inches long, exposing a lot, due to a slow healing of the immune. With no bandage, from far away it could not be seen, but as you walk up close to her, you could see it, and feel the pain, on her face.
Jesus talked about the Pharisees who said long prayers, and wore long robes, but crossed the street to the other side, when they saw the hurting one, and the wounded, bleeding from being attacked and robbed. Looking at someone from the outside could be like lust, but you don't want to know the details, or see the wounds, or feel the pain. Just ride past and take a good look, and keep going, like the Pharisee Jesus talked about. The good Samaritan, gave of his own money and put the wounded on his own donkey, took him to an inn for care, and told the inn keeper, i'll pay you what it costs to care for this man. The bible says, this; {If you give even a glass of water to someone, you will not lose your reward. Matthew 10:24 }

Reminds me of
Proverbs 19: 17. He who has pity on the poor gives to the Lord, and the Lord will give him his reward.
