Eric writes, "Let’s not forget that one of our purposes as believers is to be an example or a witness of G-D’s forgiveness and His delivering power that sets us from sin - not free to sin."
Eric writes, "However, many of us miss the very first step in the process and we end up fighting many spiritual battles that we are not only not intended to fight, but that are impossible for us to win because we are not the ones that are equipped or prepared to fight those battles."
Eric writes, "Understanding how G-D works in our lives is all about our perspective. If G-D’s Word is true, then anytime our view of His working in our lives seems out of character we need to reexamine the situation."
Eric writes, "I also was not resting spiritually because I was so fatigued from my efforts to prepare for Shabbat that I was rarely able to enjoy the Shabbat. All of this changed after I read a very familiar verse of Scripture, which almost everyone knows. It is found in Genesis 2:2-3..."
Eric writes, "This simple understanding of being constantly surrounded by the miraculous has changed my faith perspective completely."
Eric writes, "While I believe that home groups are absolutely biblical, this exodus from 'organized congregations' has, in some cases, resulted in the rejection of the idea that corporate gatherings are also biblical and essential to the health of the body of believers."
Eric writes, "With these words, a concept is established that is just as important today as it was on the very first day of creation. This concept has the ability to change our lives and affect everything we do."
Eric writes, "One word. One simple word can change the meaning and understanding of a Biblical passage and the concepts that are held within that passage... One powerful example of this is found in Numbers chapters 20 and 21."
Eric writes, "What an exciting faith-building chapter Hebrews 11 is to read. It is almost impossible to read these words without feeling somewhat challenged to step out in faith in the same way that they did. Yet, most of us do not make that step or at least not completely."
Eric writes, "Yet with all of that preaching and praying and fasting the majority of our congregations still continue to exist in a spiritual drought of the miraculous."
