5 Ways to Hearing the Voice of God to Avoid Costly Mistakes

5 Ways to Hearing the Voice of God to Avoid Costly Mistakes

Have you ever been in a situation in which you thought that God was speaking to you, but you had doubts if you really were hearing the voice of God?

A couple of months ago, I found out that I was going to run out of money in my savings account due to some unexpected bills.

My son, Andrew, at 2 months old

My wife was pregnant with our son this year, Andrew, and as a result, we had a total of five hospital bills that our health insurance didn’t cover.

The cost was huge, thousands of dollars, but of course, totally worth it :-)

As I was praying to God, asking Him about what I should do, someone from the Internet approached me with a business proposition.

He wanted me to promote his product on my blog and for every reader that signs up, I would get a commission.Continue Reading

“Did you give the man the business cards I told you?”  my dad asked me, hoping I had been obedient.

Cars were zipping past the busy street and my dad and I were standing on the pavement having this strange conversation.

“No, Dad I didn’t,” I replied, not sure how my dad was going to react.

“What!  I thought I told you to give that man the business cards.  Why don’t you listen?  My son, you’re the only person I can trust.  Our phones are being tapped and people are watching us!”

“What are you talking about, Dad?”

“Peter, our phones are tapped.  People are listening to our conversations, and I’m being watched.”

Of course, none of the things that my dad was saying were true, but he really believed it.  It was hard for me to see my dad this way.Continue Reading

Why Does God Allow Suffering? [video]

Why Does God Allow Suffering? [video]

Last week I got goosebumps as I heard one of the pastors share some hard to swallow news.

“Tom went home to be with the Lord today,” Pastor Rob announced.  “He was pinned by a truck while driving his motorcycle.

“He leaves behind his wife and his 9-year-old daughter.  He was just 47 years old.”

The room filled with church staff went silent.  There were a few people who gasped for air as they heard the shocking news.

We immediately began to pray for the family asking God to comfort them during this extremely difficult time.

This story brings up the question, “Why does God allow suffering and pain in our world today?”

Why did God take Tom home at the young age of 47?

Why does God allow suffering by allowing Tom’s wife and daughter to experience the extreme pain that they are feeling?Continue Reading

The Two Most Common Lies People Are Falling For

The Two Most Common Lies People Are Falling For
What are the two most common lies that people fall for according to Francis Chan?

I asked this question to the Not Ashamed of the Gospel community on Twitter on Tuesday and I got a whole bunch of responses.

It was interesting that not a single person got one of them right.

Francis Chan talks about what these two lies are in a great video.

I wrote about it in my guest post this week on Emerging Evangelists.

4 Reasons to Use Instapray to Ask For a Prayer For Healing or Encouragement
The other day an acquaintance friend of mine asked me for prayer on Twitter.

I’ll call her Lisa.

Lisa was struggling with depression because she’s been looking for a job for a long time but she still hadn’t found one yet.

I reassured her that God had the perfect job for her and I prayed for her right on the spot.

Sometimes, you’re going to go through rough patches in life and you need a prayer for encouragement.

Other times you get sick and you need a prayer for healing.

And then there are those times when you need prayer for God to move the mountains in your life.Continue Reading

How to Use Twitter Better By Taking Advantage of Twitter Lists

How to Use Twitter Better By Taking Advantage of Twitter Lists
If you’ve followed the advice in the free guide to getting thousands of Twitter followers, then you’ll find yourself following hundreds and maybe even thousands of people.

The reason for that is because you’re advised to start following your ideal customer, follower, or audience.

One question that I get asked often is, “How do I keep up with all of the tweets in my timeline?  There are too many tweets from different people and I can’t use Twitter like I used to when I was only following a few people?”

Not only are there a lot more tweets in your timeline, but you may find that some of the users that you started following don’t have that great of tweets.

Should you unfollow them?Continue Reading
