5 Ways to Confront Racism

Ways we can begin to confront the ugly face of racism, the notion that one race is superior to the other. Let us talk, only when we are prepared to listen to each other can we come to a resolution. It is never too late to talk, let us talk to each other not at each other, and begin to listen with our hearts. 

All men are equal. It was God who said, through his prophet Moses, in the beginning He created the heavens and the earth. He also said let us make the man.  So, we can safely say we are all one blood, regardless of our color. So why do we hate each other? Until we come to the truth that God has created us and we are all his, then we will be on our way to stop Racism from destroying relationships.

Be Hopeful

Hope is defined as a feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen. We are in good hands if we hope in God. The Word of God encourages us to be of good courage, for in doing this God will strengthen you. 

We all have the need for strength as we go through life on a daily basis. Each day has a new challenge and often we need daily strength to deal with the various issues that we face. In life there will always be problems, however, we should always remember that the eye of the Lord is upon us, especially when we allow Him to direct our path; so we should hope in His mercy trusting he will never leave or forsake us in times of crisis.

Life can be overwhelming and often we become hopeless when circumstances do not go the way we want them. Your circumstances will change. Do not let failure cause you to give up trying, keep pressing forward and upward. Hope in God for He is always there to help you. Do not be impatient when you experience delays, trust in God for He is able to turn things in your favor.

To desire is to obtain, to hope is to achieve. All things can be achieved with hard work and determination, so keep hope alive. Hope provides vision and the vision is the promise of your desires. It enables you to visualize what you will become. In all your affairs there must be effort and with the effort, you will experience results. So be hopeful, elevate your thoughts, and watch your desires become a reality.

Prayer Secret of Power Quotes#10

Woman Praying
Prayer the secret of power it brings the heart into immediate contact with the wellspring of life and strengthens the sinew and muscle of the religious experience. Neglect the exercise of prayer, or engage in prayer spasmodically, now and then, as seems convenient, and you lose your hold on God.

The strength acquired in prayer to God will prepare us for our daily duties. The temptations to which we are daily exposed make prayer a necessity.

 In order that we may be kept by the power of God through faith, the desires of the mind should be continually ascending in silent prayer.

When we are surrounded by influences calculated to lead us away from God, our petitions for help and strength must be unwearied. Unless this is so, we shall never be successful in breaking down pride and overcoming the power of temptation to sinful indulgences that keep us from the Saviour.

The light of truth, sanctifying the life, will discover to the receiver the sinful passions of his heart which are striving for the mastery, and which make it necessary for him to stretch every nerve and exert all his powers to resist Satan that he may conquer through the merits of Christ.

We do not value the power and efficacy of prayer as we should. Prayer and faith will do what no power on earth can accomplish. we are seldom, in all respects, placed in the same position twice.

We continually have new scenes and new trials to pass through, where past experience cannot be a sufficient guide. We must have the continual light that comes from God.
