Holy Spirit Agrees!!!

While I was driving to Trader Joe’s this afternoon I heard Zach Williams’ “Chain Breaker” and told the Lord that it’s a nice song. I felt he said, “Yes it is!!!”

Here is Zach Williams’ “Chain Breaker”:

If you’ve been walking the same old road for miles and miles
If you’ve been hearing the same old voice tell the same old lies
If you’re trying to feel the same old holes inside
There’s a better life
There’s a better life

If you’ve got pain
He’s a pain taker
If you feel lost
He’s a way maker
If you need freedom or saving
He’s a prison-shaking Savior
If you’ve got chains
He’s a chain breaker

We’ve all search for the light of day in the dead of night
We’ve all found ourselves worn out from the same old fight
We’ve all run to things we know just ain’t right
And there’s a better life
There’s a better life

If you believe it
If you receive it
If you can feel it
Somebody testify

More Prayer Is Beneficial

If you’ve read my most recent posts you might be wondering, “Did Charlie just take two months to spend more time with God? What a huge commitment!”

The answer to that is No and Yes. I want to be truthful and say that I have been worshiping God a little more often in the last couple months. The last almost two weeks has meant even more time spent with the Lord and the last few days have been pretty intense. Actually, fervent would be a better word. I don’t want to get into a fervent-off with anyone, but I am definitely more fervent than I was 13 months ago!

Below are a couple of potent prayer passages from BibleGateway.com that I find practical and powerful in everyday life:

Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. Elijah, for instance, human just like us, prayed hard that it wouldn’t rain, and it didn’t—not a drop for three and a half years. Then he prayed that it would rain, and it did. The showers came and everything started growing again.

James 5:16-18 The Message

Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 The Message

As I write this I just noticed that both passages come from Chapter 5, verses 16-18 in both James and 1 Thessalonians. Maybe these will be easier to memorize in tandem because of the chapter and verse being exactly the same.

Prayer makes a difference and more prayer makes even more difference!

Our son’s moving back in today and there’s a lot going on, so I’ll be back later this week.

Keep praying, Brothers And Sisters!
