The Journey with Ron Moore

Don’t give up hope. Keep the desires of your heart ignited. Don’t let shattered plans become abandoned plans. It’s the desire to keep pushing forward, to keep hoping, to keep trusting that turns night into day and reminds us that light is near.

First, prayer is communication with God. So prayer is much more than requests. It is talking to God as we would an intimate friend. It is sharing our life with Him–fears, frustrations, joys, sorrows, and, yes, our requests. Second, some turn prayer into a formulaic ritual. I thought of this… Continue Reading…

Prayer is a personal conversation with God. It is not a laundry list of commands or must-haves. In the conversation with my heavenly Father, I can and should express my personal desires just like Jesus did. And, just like Jesus did, I should hand over my desires to the perfect will of God.

When we surrender our expectations to Christ, He replaces them with something better than we can expect or even imagine. That’s Ron Moore’s challenge in this half-hour, to give up our desires for God’s. As you’ll see, it’s an… Continue Reading…

Psalm 132:1-5 A song of ascents. LORD, remember David and all his self-denial. He swore an oath to the LORD, he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob: “I will not enter my house or go to my bed, I will allow no sleep to my eyes or… Continue Reading…

Psalm 119:33-40 ה He  Teach me, LORD, the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end. Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight…. Continue Reading…

Psalm 103:1-12 Of David. Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and… Continue Reading…
