Angela Watkins Rivers: God’s Exclusive Claim – Daily Sunday School Reading – Christian Article

God spoke all these words: I am God your God. Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of a life of slavery. No other gods, only Him.

Why does God allow Coronavirus and other types of suffering? – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve posted prayer requests on Facebook for a young single mom who was critically ill and near death with a respiratory distress syndrome like that seen with COVID-19, and more recently, a young father who contracted the virus working as an ER nurse in the very same hospital where he now lies in intensive care, connected to a ventilator.

Viruses and God’s Good Designs – Christian Article

  Viruses and God’s Good Designs by Dr. Hugh Ross Among the many questions I have received on my social media pages is this one: Why would an all-powerful and all-loving God create a world in which viruses exist?

God Changes People Through Prayer – Christian Article

First of all, then, I urge that petitions (specific requests), prayers, intercessions (prayers for others) and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all people. — 1 Timothy 2:1 (AMP) In Exodus 32, Moses interceded for the children of Israel so that the wrath of God would not destroy them.

I Heard God Whisper, “Do you know how much I love you?” – Christian Article

I love to travel. I love everything about it. Being able to experience new places and cultures, make friends all over the world, truly excites me in such a way that I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

Whatever you do shall prosper – Godinterest Magazine – Christian Article

As the new year approaches, I want to remind you that God’s plan is for you to prosper, and be successful in every area of your life.

When God speaks life – Living the life God intended – Christian Article

Hi how was your week? Mine was good but not without its challenges. What do we do in situations where it seems everything is going wrong? We feel like we have lost relationships, work, our career, our friends and maybe even had to move. Do we hang on to God and His love for us or do we think that because all this stuff is happening, God has forgotten me. I am sure some of the Israelites felt like that.…
