***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: The purposeful and random acts of violence we see occurring each day are a sign this nation is beginning to unravel into the “law of the jungle” where only the fit survive! Man’s violence against man is certainly nothing new. Actually, it dates all the way back to first brothers when Cain murdered Abel. I’ve used a term on the TV program many times that I know makes some people a bit squeamish, and that is when I refer to certain people as “feral.” It is a brutal way to describe a human being, but sadly it is very accurate. With the breakdown of marriage and the family, with so many children growing up without a mother, father, or both in a myriad of family dynamics, the reality is there is a growing percentage of kids growing up like feral animals. A feral animal is one that has escaped from a domestic status and is living more or less as a wild animal. The fact is you have kids growing up in the United States in the year of our Lord 2023 as “feral children!” They are growing up with minimal adult supervision, amongst other children in the same situation. The amount of crime, violent acts by children should be disturbing to everyone. IT IS NOT NORMAL! Sadly we have a percentage of children growing up without loving parents, without parental supervision, without church, and without a commitment to school. These same children are being raised by their peers on the streets. They are largely void of human compassion, feelings, and conscience. To these children life is NOT precious and has little to no meaning. So the crime and acts of violence by children are to be expected. Than you have teens, young adults, who have grown up without any sort of faith background. They too do not view life as something precious. Their thoughts and beliefs have been shaped by this lost world where violence is always the answer to any situation. Lastly you have the growing percentage of children and adults living with untreated mental illnesses. Society has totally dropped the ball when it comes to caring for the mentally ill. Sadly, many of these people act out violently. Every day you can turn on the news and see people fighting in airports, on airplanes in flight. You see endless violence on the streets of our towns and cities. While there are more news sources than ever, the fact is purposeful and random acts of violence is on the rise and getting worse with each passing day. Now more than ever people need to know Jesus, the Prince of PEACE! Violence is NEVER the answer, but is sadly the result of a people void of God in their lives. Know I am praying for you and your family today, for God’s protection in your daily travels. In this increasingly wicked world we live in for a season, man’s inhumanity to man will be part of the human condition until Christ returns and this fallen world comes to an end. Jesus said in Matthew 5:9, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God!” AMEN!!!

There is a Biblical principle that I learned many years ago that I want to share with you today. Biblical principles are like scientific laws. They work. The law of gravity works, there are no exceptions. Biblical principles work, there are no exceptions. One of those Biblical principles is sowing into your need. Now trust me, many of God’s principles don’t make much of sense. But then again, when God gave the army generals the battle plan for taking the city of Jericho, I doubt that walking around the walls of the city and blowing trumpets was something that made much sense either.
I am convinced that many things God does, don’t make sense to us because we have to realize that only God could make something like that work. This principle is very easy to understand. You give when you yourself have a need. Common sense says if I have a need, I hold on to what I have or my need becomes worse. I am sure that is what the Widow of Zarephath was thinking when the prophet Elijah asked her for her last bit of food. This woman literally gave the man of God the last thing she had. Talk about faith.
Faith is not a word, but a belief system. Faith is easy to talk about, hard to practice. The problem with exercising our faith is our brain gets in the way. The enemy puts doubt in our mind. Living our faith becomes the test of our Christian experience. From the thousands of prayer requests we get here daily, I realize that so many of you are struggling with your finances. There are many great Christian financial ministries that can help people apply biblical principles to their financial life. I would encourage you to invest a few dollars and study their teaching and follow those biblical principles that can help you keep your finances healthy.
I would encourage those of you today that are in the midst of a financial crisis to sow into your need. I have done this continually throughout my ministry. Even now, as we work each month to raise the finances to keep Liveprayer going, I sow a seed into other ministries knowing that God will honor my faith and bless us in return. My friend, it works. Look at the widow. She gives the man of God her last bit of food, and soon afterwards her son dies. God blesses her faith by using the man of God to bring that son back to life! Sowing into your need works!!! God’s principles work!!!
I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying for you today. I care about you very much and will do everything I can each day to share the things God places in my heart to try and help you along this great journey we are on. You are never too young to begin applying God’s principles into your life. What happens is, when we obey and God’s blessings flow from our obedience, our faith is strengthened. The next time we have to exercise our faith, we do it more readily since we already have seen God move before. We gain confidence that our faith is real, God is real, and His way does work.
I pray that you who are struggling financially today will give into your need. I don’t care where you give, just give and show God you believe His Word and trust Him. God cannot lie and His Word is the absolute truth that you can stake your very life and eternal existence on. Trust Him today and watch Him work miracles in your life!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
