It is not based on the natural wealth, resources, economic prosperity, population, military strength, the capacity of it’s industry or agriculture, education system, health services, system of governance or it’s leaders.

A common sponge activity among new bye preachers when they want to preach about faith is to ask the congregation “How many of you have got faith?” The question actually doesn’t make sense because there’s no such thing as “people who have faith” and “people who don’t have faith.” The truth is that everyone puts their faith in something. A much sensible way of asking this question would be to ask them “On whom or what or where do you have placed your faith today?”

It may seem strange that a godly home could be dysfunctional but Jacob and Esau had the deck stacked against them by their own parents. Isaac favored Esau, his rugged outdoors man, while Rebekah preferred gentle Jacob, and neither hesitated to let their feelings show.

One day when I was still a small child, I noticed a tiny bruise on my thy. I took it for granted thus did not treat it at all. Before very long it festered and grew up to be a big wound which inflicted so much of pain upon treatment.
You can never escape physical wounds neither emotional wounds. Humans are emotional beings and it’s not a silly feeling to have emotional hurts. Research says emotional hurts we experience in our childhood has a lot to do with our present way of dealing with others, our self esteem, marriage life and many other areas. Just becoming a Christian cannot heal your emotional wounds, but you have to deal with it and allow God to help. This is called inner healing.
Some people go to psychiatrics, counselors and other professionals in search of emotional healing. But do you know that Jesus died for you so that your emotional wounds will be healed? Let us see the influence of unhealthy emotions and how you can look up to Jesus for help?
