The Life of Prayer

For as long as I can remember I have heard my mom (Daphne Crause) speak about the importance of prayer.

It has been a passion in her life for a long time and she showed me how important it is to talk to the Lord. Prayer does not have to be complicated. In fact it is very simple. It is as simple as talking to the Lord.

I can remember as a child complaining about the things that were wrong in my life or telling my parents the things I wanted. They would always say the same thing to me: 

Go ask the Lord about it

I came to the place where even if I was not praying for something specifically, I would find myself talking to the Lord about what was in my heart. Prayer is that simple, it is just having a conversation with God. And you can do it all the time.

Overcoming The Boredom

Here in South Africa the entire country has been placed into lockdown from this Friday. That means everyone has to stay at home and only go out for essentials. Some other countries are also in this position already and others are likely to also go that route soon.

This can be a frustration if you are used to going out, and being stuck at home can lead to a lot of boredom. But for believers it can be a perfect time to catch up on some of the things that you have not had time for until now.

What an opportunity this is for you to spend some time building your spiritual life and ministry through reading and study. You don’t want to spend all that time filling up on worldly input by spending hours watching TV. 

You want to read some uplifting books and watch videos that will inspire and teach you. And we have a huge collection of these which I believe would really help build your faith and give you a new hope for the future.

Your Spiritual Life

I like to read stories and if you are human, then chances are that you also like stories. Some stories have a deep meaning behind them. While others are just a bunch of nonsense that someone made up to entertain you.

But stories have a power to draw you in and make you remember them. They have a power to influence you and help you learn new things.

The bible is full of stories that have meaning in them. Though often all people remember are the stories and they don’t always remember the rest of what the Lord was saying in His word.

There is one story in the bible that maybe you did not fully understand yet. That is the story of Esther.

Quick Read – Short But Powerful

I personally always want to read something new. And if you are someone who likes to read I am sure you feel the same.

But maybe you don’t like reading long books. Or maybe you just have not had the time recently. There is just so much available, that it can be hard to decide what to read first.

I have every intention of reading all the books, but it does not happen.

Not too long ago I picked up a small book that we found randomly at the bookstore. It was inspirational and all about being successful.

Do You Like Stories?

In my last post I shared part of my story of learning the Way of Blessing Principles.

You may have noticed that I mentioned how the Way of Blessing was a big book. And it took a while before I started to learn the principles.

But what if there was an easier way, or a more fun way to learn them?

Well, we have a book that has taken the Way of Blessing principles and put them into a powerful story.

This is the only story book that we offer on the GBM Bookshop. But it is far more than just a novel. It is a story packed with this foundational teaching.

It is called – The Blessing Code

What is Blessing?

What does it mean to be blessed?

If you watched or listened to our weekly meeting at GBM Fellowship, then you know that this week was all about prosperity. Imagine if every believer could walk in prosperity and not have to worry about making ends meet.

The Lord wants you to prosper. Because this is the only way that theft and strife will disappear.

During our weekly meeting Apostle Les mentioned our foundational teaching. “The New Way of Blessing” and how important it is. This teaching is the most essential teaching that we offer. Yet sometimes it seems that we ourselves forget how powerful it is.

Today I want to tell you my story of The Way of Blessing.

Get A Quick Faith Boost

Did you know that the more Word you feed into your inward parts the more your faith will grow?

The Scripture says that faith comes by hearing the rhema word of God. And the only way you can get a rhema word is to first feed the Word inwards. Then it starts coming out from inside of you as a rhema, and that is when faith is produced. 

I found that when I repeat Scriptures over and over again until they sink into my inner memory, my faith gets stronger. And when I need to believe God, these Scriptures start coming out of me. 

But it is not always easy to sit down and quote Scriptures over and over again. So I found a better way.
