Bible Verse of the Week: 1 Chronicles 5:22a

"Many others fell slain, because the battle was God's." -1 Chronicles 5:22a
This is one of my favorite verses in 1 Chronicles because it is a reminder that we are fighting under the Lord's banner. If the battle is God's, defeat is impossible. In Biblical wars, the leaders cried out to God during battle, and He answered each prayer because they trusted in Him. He always delivers us, so we need not trust in our own weapons. When the battle is God's, we must rest full confidence in the Lord, for He is our sword and shield. Defeat in spiritual battles of sin should not be feared either. We should never faint, flee, shrink, nor flinch in the face of evil for the battle is God's! ~Jesselyn

Bible Verse of the Week: Philippians 3:8a

"What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things." -Philippians 3:8a
Spiritual knowledge of Christ must be personal knowledge of Him. We must know Christ ourselves, not through another or through visionaries, but as the Word reveals Him to us. We must know His natures, attributes, works, and glory, to name a few, and meditate upon Him. In order to know Him, we must love Him and commit to Him. Knowledge of Him will be a satisfying knowledge that fills to the brim. Also, the knowledge of Him will be an exciting knowledge that constantly seeks to know more of Him. Knowledge of Him will be so happy that it upholds and strengthens when during the many trials faced. I encourage you to deepen your knowledge of Jesus Christ and grow in your relationship with Him today, for He has given me satisfaction, excitement, and happiness. -Jesselyn

Bible Verse of the Week: 2 Kings 6:6

"Elisha cut a stick and threw it (in the water), and made the iron float." -2 Kings 6:6
For things impossible with man are possible with God. When called upon to work exceeding our strength, it appears difficult and absurd. Yet when we are faced with challenging situations, our faith rises causing us to do what we think we cannot do through Christ. Under any trouble, our faith leads us to the unfailing Helper Jesus Christ in whom we always receive aid. Whatever your desperate situation, bring the heavy matter to God. He lives, and lives to help His people. He will not allow us to lack any good thing. Approaching Him to beg for help, you will see God working marvels for the believers. According to your faith will it be done to you, and you may, indeed, see the iron float. ~Jesselyn

Album Review: "The Love In Between" by Matt Maher

Genre: Worship/Pop
Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

Matt Maher is famous for his worship songs “Your Grace Is Enough” and “Christ Is Risen.” He has also co-written songs with other big-name artists such as Chris Tomlin in “I Will Rise.” In his third studio album with Essential Records, Matt uses a pop music genre, similar to that of his 2010 hit single “Hold Us Together” from Alive Again, in many of his songs. However, some of his songs still retain the worship music that he is known for. This is obviously a new feature in Maher’s career, and it poses the question of whether it will improve or worsen his music. The question was easily answered for me as I found his new album to be quite a success.

The record begins with “Rise Up,” an upbeat song of encouragement. Matt sings that when we are feeling down we need to “rise up” and realize the love that God is showering down on us, saying in the chorus, “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the love that’s here and now.” Coming second on the album is the first radio single “Turn Around” which contains very a similar feel as “Hold Us Together.” It is a really fun song that encourages everyone who is experiencing hardships in life to

Bible Verse of the Week: Ephesians 6:18a

"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests." -Ephesians 6:18a
We have prayed numerous times ever since we have learned how to pray. We pray for God's mercy, for grace, for renewed faith, for deliverance of temptation, and for aid. We constantly ask Him for everything in our lives, and He hears our infinite supplications. Our soul feeds on the bread and water of Christ Jesus whom we depend upon daily. Our wants and prayers are innumerable, and His supplies and mercies are countless. As our prayers are many, so are His answers to them. He has heard, strengthened, and helped us in times of trouble even when we have contantly sinned against Him. Remember this that God has graciously heard our prayers every time, and, hopefully, it will fill you will gratitude towards Him. -Jesselyn
