June 12 Rebuilding Your Faith

Scripture Reading: Matthew 17:15–21

Key Verse: Matthew 17:20

So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”

When circumstances appear to take an unexpected turn, sometimes our faith can be rocked. We wonder how we will ever endure the tragedy or injustice unfolding before us. However, adversity should never be the end of our faith; it should be the beginning. No matter the adversity, a strong faith will enable us to endure life’s toughest hardships.

But what should we do when we discern that our circumstances are indeed rattling our faith? How do we regain our footing?

  • Make a decision to choose to believe that God is trustworthy and faithful. God always keeps His promises. He desires the best for our lives. At times, what we think is the best and what He knows is the best may be conflicting. However, God’s ways always produce the most spiritual fruit, the strongest character, and the unimaginable perfect result.
  • Refuse to doubt God. The enemy hopes to thwart us by infusing doubt into our minds that will lead us to question our faith. When we refuse to look at our circumstances through worldly eyes, God gives us a sense of peace and rest.
  • Read God’s Word and meditate on His promises. Searching the Bible for God’s promises is one way we can quiet the wavering of our faith, standing on all His promises with the deep assurance that God always keeps His Word.

To you, Lord, who created the universe and the mountains, the obstacles in my life are comparably the size of tiny stones. I trust You to help me step over these challenges.[1]

June 12 Confronting Conflicts

Scripture Reading: 2 Corinthians 4:7–18

Key Verse: 2 Corinthians 4:17

Our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.

Conflict affects people in different ways:

  • Some internalize their difficulties, which can lead to sustained anger and frustration.
  • Others fully vent their feelings and emotions, which may make them feel better momentarily but does not solve their problems.
  • Still others try to ignore their problems, hoping they will disappear as time passes.

In God’s plan, conflicts initiate the following scriptural scenario:

First, our conflicts should drive us to the Lord Jesus Christ. We look to God’s Word to guide our conduct; we seek His face to steady our course. We lean on His strength, depend on His wisdom, and take refuge in His arms.

Second, we entrust our problems to the Lord’s care. God is responsible for His children. Our conflicts concern Him, and He promises to sustain us if we cast our burdens on Him (1 Peter 5:6–7).

Third, we thank God for an outcome that glorifies Him. The Lord uses our conflicts to produce outstanding results that will benefit us on earth and in heaven.

By taking our problems to the Father, we have engaged our mighty God to work in our behalf. These problems can be solved as we allow Him to fight our battles for us (Ex. 14:14; Rev. 19:11).

O Lord, let every conflict drive me to You. Guide my conduct and steady my course. Use my problems to produce results that will benefit me on earth and in heaven. Thank You for an outcome that will glorify You.[1]

Hey Joe Biden, Here Are Some Scandals You Forgot — The Federalist

Perhaps Joe Biden feels ‘most proud’ of his mythical years of non-scandals because it’s the only thing in his past he isn’t going to be forced to abandon.

“Know what I was most proud of?” presidential candidate Joe Biden told a crowd on Wednesday. “For eight years, there wasn’t one single hint of a scandal or a lie.”

In an era where every presidential tweet is an existential threat to democracy, there are probably plenty of people who believe this myth. Off the bat, though, it should be mentioned that even liberal factchecking outfit PolitiFact once awarded Barack Obama the “Lie of Year” for misleading the American people about his technocratic health-care plan.

Our former vice president, no slouch about misleading the public on the ACA, probably forgot.

Obama’s most famous lie, of course, upturned millions of lives. Without it, it’s doubtful Obamacare—which was perhaps the only wholly partisan national reform effort in American history—would ever have passed. Even with a stream of falsehoods, the bill had to be shoe-horned through Congress. Media did a lot of heavy lifting for the administration in those heady days.

“If you like your health care plan, you can keep it” was only one of an array of demonstrably false statements fed to the public to give (now-extinct) moderate Democrats cover. You might remember one of Obamacare’s architects, Jonathan Gruber, explaining how this “lack of transparency” compounded by “the stupidity of the American voter” was a huge political advantage for the administration. Or maybe you don’t.

How many Americans knew, for instance, that “Operation Fast and Furious” put around 2,000 weapons into the hands of narco-traffickers (and an Islamic terrorist), leading to the murder of hundreds of Mexican citizens, and at least one American, a border agent named Brian Terry? Not enough.

There must have been at least a sniff of scandal, by the way, because even after a federal judge rejected Obama’s assertion of executive privilege in efforts to deny Congress files relating to the operation, the administration wouldn’t budge. Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, refused to cooperate in the investigation, becoming the first sitting attorney general in American history to be held in contempt of Congress — a vote that included 17 Democrats.

That’s odd, because today asserting executive privilege is exactly like Watergate. And ignoring courts? Well, Obama did that all the time.

Then again, Obama could secretly send planes filled with cash to pay ransom to an Islamist terror state responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American servicemen (using money that had been earmarked for terror victims), and most reporters would still regurgitate echo-chamber talking points. You remember Ben Rhodes bragging about how the Obama administration could trick 27-years-olds whose “only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns” because they “literally know nothing?”

Politico’s Josh Meyer, who did know something, would write a deeply sourced piece—featuring numerous real-life, on-the-record administration officials— about the Obama administration’s efforts to undermine investigations into a drug-trafficking ring run by Hezbollah operating in the United States, and most major news organizations never even mentioned it.

Today, President Trump’s Twitter attacks on CNN reporters are threats to the future of free expression. Back in 2012, the Obama’s Department of Justice spied on the Associated Press, tapping around 20 different phone lines—including cell phone and home lines—that captured at least 100 staffers who worked for the outlet. The government kept records of all outgoing calls “for both the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters” and the main line used by reporters in the House of Representatives.

The Justice Department had already spied on Fox News reporter James Rosen in 2010, collecting his telephone records, looking at his personal emails, and tracking his movements. Holder, by the way, shopped the case to three separate judges, until he found one who let him name Rosen a co-conspirator in the crime of reporting the news. If only this episode had gotten a fraction of the breathless coverage of a William Barr letter.

There is, of course, so much more. Obama’s CIA director, John Brennan, oversaw an operation of illegal spying on a staffer of the legislative branch of the U.S. government. At least five agency officials under his watch broke into Senate computer files, viewing drafts of a report on torture and reconstructing emails of at least one staffer. Brennan would attempt to cover up the agency’s actions by doubling down, blaming the Senate, and pushing to fire at least one staffer charged with investigating his agency.

Then there is Obama’s director of national intelligence, James Clapper, who brazenly lied to Congress about spying on American citizens.

Biden might not remember that Internal Revenue Service leadership aggressively targeted conservative groups to undermine their voice in elections. The IRS admitted as much in an apology letter. Then there was Obama national security advisor Susan Rice, who went on national television and claimed that terrorist attacks against Americans at Benghazi were a “spontaneous reaction” to “hateful and offensive video,” even when she knew it was a sophisticated and pre-planned terror attack. Defenders of free expression were nowhere to be found as the maker of the video was conveniently thrown into jail.

There were cronyistic green projects that enriched political allies. There was the Secret Service’s many embarrassing breaches and general debauchery. There was Hillary Clinton’s infamous attempts to circumvent transparency — more than likely to cover up favor-trading. Even more seriously, there was Veterans Affairs negligence.

Then again, perhaps Biden feels “most proud” of his mythical eight years of non-scandals because it’s about the only thing in his political past he isn’t going to be forced to abandon.

Tom Fitton: DOJ Conducted a Sham Investigation to Protect Clinton and Obama & Target Trump

https://www.judicialwatch.org

April 25, 2019- JW President Tom Fitton appeared on “The Joe Pags Show” on Newsmax TV to discuss how the DOJ conducted a sham investigation to protect Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Hannity: Sources say Obama spying worse than thought | WND

(Washington Examiner) Fox News host Sean Hannity said the “investigation into the investigators” is shaping up to be more of a bombshell than previously expected.

During his evening show, Hannity played up what the Justice Department has already uncovered in its examination of the Russia investigation’s origins and potential misconduct by Justice Department and FBI officials.

“The single biggest abuse of power scandal in American history is about to be laid bare for all to see,” Hannity said Tuesday. “Sources tonight are confirming to me that things are most likely even worse than we originally thought.”

7 Reasons Leadership from Our Knees is Imperative — ChuckLawless.com

When I first started pastoring a church 38 years ago, I wish I’d known more about the necessity and power of prayer. I’m still learning, and I make no claims to meet this standard—but I’m convinced we need to lead from our knees. That is to say, genuine prayer must be in our DNA. Here’s why:

  1. It requires that we seek God first, then lead. If we lead first and then ask God to bless what we’ve done (which is what many of us do, I fear), we have the process backwards. DNA prayer keeps the order right.
  2. It’s an admission of our love for God and a confession of our dependence on Him. Genuine, DNA prayer says, “God, I love You and I need You.” Many leaders I know—if not most—wrestle with depending on anything or anyone other than themselves.
  3. It forces us to slow down. For many of us who are continually busy, I suspect God would have to “catch” us first if He wished to use us. DNA prayer, on the other hand, naturally slows us down and turns us toward Him.
  4. It undercuts our arrogance. It’s really, really hard to remain arrogant if you’re really, really meeting with God every day. His majesty overwhelms us, His accessibility amazes us, and His willingness to hear us humbles us.
  5. It pushes against our tendency to be competitive. I confess my own competitive nature that sometimes leads me to unfortunate comparisons with other leaders. When intercessory prayer characterizes us, however, we see others not as competitive threats but as gospel partners who welcome our prayer support.
  6. It leads us to ongoing thanksgiving. That’s because DNA prayer covers everything we do, and we soon realize that we could not take even one more step apart from His grace and mercy.
  7. It gives us hope even when ministry is difficult. We can approach God morning, noon, and night . . . and anytime in-between. As long as I can look up to God and cry out to Him, I will always have hope no matter what I face.

Is prayer in your DNA? Perhaps these simple evaluative questions will tell you something about yourself and your prayer life:

  • Is your prayer more proactive or reactive? If you pray only when you most need God, that’s not DNA prayer.
  • Is prayer only a required ritual for you, or is it a natural expression of a real relationship with God? DNA prayer is not forced; it just comes out of us.
  • Would others who know you best say that prayer is in your DNA? Even those who pray most often in their “closet” live differently than those who pray very little—and those who know us best recognize something powerful in us when prayer is in our DNA.

As you lead this week, are you leading standing up or from your knees?

New School Program Raises Awareness Of Things Kids Didn’t Know They Were Supposed To Be Offended About — The Babylon Bee

U.S.—The Federal Government is rolling out a new school program that will help to raise awareness in kids about what they need to be so upset about. The new program, “W.O.K.E.” (Woke and Offended Kids Education) will help to bridge the gap widening between millennial parents’ desire to be offended by just about everything and the current generation wondering what got their parents’ underpants in such a bunch.

W.O.K.E. representatives will visit schools weekly to teach kids about the constantly growing number of things they should be outraged by and to discourage them from any sign of gratitude or joy. Flashcards will be held up with images of things like white males, the Chick-Fil-A logo, and Chris Pratt. Kids will then be encouraged to burn the entire school to the ground the moment they see an image that should rightfully awaken their tempestuous fury.

“Kids are starting to think things aren’t that bad in America,” said W.O.K.E. spokesperson Troy Henson. “That’s the kind of backward thinking we want to put an immediate stop to.”

At one of the first W.O.K.E. presentations, six-year-old Kevin Johnson asked the W.O.K.E. representative, “It seems like things are going pretty good and everything is headed in a fairly healthy direction when you just sort of sit back and look at how normal people act rather than sitting around on Twitter all day. Do you think maybe you’re being kind of a baby about all of this?” Johnson was immediately sent off to one of WOKE’s unique new reeducation camps where kids sing songs, do crafts, and are riled up like a pack of rabid wolves.

W.O.K.E. plans to roll out other hip and cool features such as an animal mascot (an easily spooked possum named Trig) and a catchy theme song that will whip unhealthily complacent children up into a blind rage.

“We all have to do our part to combat the growing lack of victimhood and petty outrage in today’s youth and instill them all with a strong, iron-will of entitlement and unshakable resentment,” said WOKE representative Anne Kennison. “It’s not easy to navigate the complicated matrix of perceived injustices we all must embrace. That’s why I’m so proud of what we are doing.”

“With our efforts, addiction to being pretty happy and content will be a thing of the past.”

Rep. Nunes Warns FBI Witnesses: ‘The Counterintelligence Department Over at the FBI is in Big Trouble’ (VIDEO) — The Gateway Pundit

Devin Nunes

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) ripped the corrupt Democrats and their criminal Russia hoax on Wednesday in a blistering opening statement during a House Intel Committee hearing.

Nunes is a hero who relentlessly investigated Obama’s DOJ and FBI officials who illegally spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 election.

Chairman of the House Intel Committee Adam Schiff on Wednesday dragged out two FBI witnesses who just happen to be Comey and Mueller sycophants.

The two witnesses, Robert Anderson and Stephanie Douglas, both worked under then-FBI Director Robert Mueller and Nunes did a great job on Wednesday exposing their selective outrage.

Nunes indicated there is evidence the illegal counterintelligence investigation into Trump and his associates started back in 2015, not July of 2016 as the FBI claims.

“There’s been a lot of talk about when this investigation began, now that’s an open-ended question because we can say this investigation coulda begun in 2015 because we know some of the same players were having run-ins with individuals that have questionable ties to either Western intelligence or possibly political campaign operatives, but officially they have said that it started at the end of July [2016].” Nunes said.

Nunes blasted the Steele-Media-Mueller loop of information, leaks and articles that ravaged the US for years and said the FBI is in big trouble.

The FBI witnesses were left speechless when Nunes asked them if it’s normal to have an FBI informant (Christopher Steele) who was paid by the FBI to investigate Trump’s campaign while simultaneously being paid by the Clinton campaign to investigate Trump — then went on to leak to the press.

“This counterintelligence department over at the FBI I think is in big trouble — the fact that you guys are sitting here, former FBI officials, and not saying anything and basically making the case that it is ok to use these very special powers to target a political campaign really troubles me,” Nunes said warning the FBI witnesses.

Imprisoned Chinese Christians Memorizing Bible Passages Because the Government ‘Can’t Take What’s Hidden in Your Heart’ — BCNN1 – Black Christian News Network

Chinese Christians imprisoned for their faith are memorizing Scripture passages smuggled to them on small pieces of paper because prison guards “can’t take what’s hidden in your heart,” one former prisoner revealed.  

In a recent sermon, Wayne Cordeiro, pastor of New Hope Christian Fellowship in Honolulu, Hawaii, shared an experience he had on a trip to China, where the church went to train leaders.

The pastor shared how 22 Christians from the Hunan Province took a 13-hour train ride to attend the leadership training held at a 700-square-foot hotel room. Out of the 22 Christians present, 18 had been imprisoned for their faith, the pastor revealed.

“If we get caught what will happen to me?” Cordeiro began by asking.

“Well, you will get deported in 24 hours, and we will go to prison for three years,” the Chinese Christians responded.

After beginning his lesson, the pastor realized he only had 15 Bibles to pass around, so seven people went without.

“I said, ‘turn to 2 Peter 1, we are going to read it.’ Just then one lady handed hers to the person next to her, and I thought ‘hmm interesting,’” he recalled.

As the Christians began reading, he quickly realized why she had given her Bible away: she had memorized the whole book.

“When it was done, I went over to her at a break and said, ‘You recited the whole chapter,’” he said. She replied, “In prison, you have much time in prison.”

“Don’t they confiscate the Bible?” he asked.

She said that while any Christian material is indeed confiscated, people smuggle in Scripture written on paper and hide it from the prison guards.

“That’s why we memorize it as fast as we can because even though they can take the paper away, they can’t take what’s hidden in your heart,” she explained.

Following the three-day training session, one Chinese Christian man asked Cordeiro, “Could you pray that one day we could just be like you?”

Trump’s White House Won’t Acknowledge June As LGBT Pride Month, Even As Everyone Else Does. | Newsweek

(Newsweek) – After years of precedent set by Barack Obama, President Donald Trump is breaking from tradition by failing to recognize June as LGBT Pride Month. On the final day of May, the president issued five separate proclamations, choosing June to honor Caribbean-American heritage, African-American music, homeownership, the outdoors and the ocean. (Reporters and comedians alike noted the irony of the last two, in light of Trump pulling the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement last week.) An acknowledgment of June as a historic month for LGBT people was nowhere to be found. LGBT advocates and former White House staffers took to Twitter to criticize the lack of recognition. Shin Inouye, a former member of Obama’s communication staff, said Trump “couldn’t be bothered” to recognize LGBT Pride Month and expressed that, given his record, “maybe it’s for the best.” The celebration of LGBT pride commemorates the Stonewall riots, which occurred near the end of June 1969 in New York City and are often considered the beginning of the modern LGBT rights movement.

Rep. Nunes RIPS Democrats and Russia Hoax – Calls Mueller Report a “Shoddy Political Hit Piece” (VIDEO) — The Gateway Pundit

Devin Nunes

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) ripped the corrupt Democrats and their criminal Russia hoax on Wednesday during a House Intel Committee hearing.

Nunes is a hero who relentlessly investigated Obama’s DOJ and FBI officials who illegally spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 election.

“The entire scheme has now imploded and the collusion accusation has become exposed as a hoax. One would think the Democrats would simply apologize and get back to lawmaking and oversight but it’s clear they couldn’t stop this grotesque spectacle even if they wanted to,” Ranking member of the House Intel Committee Devin Nunes said in his opening statement.

“After years of false accusations and McCarthyite smears, the collusion hoax now defines the Democratic Party. The hoax is what they have in place of a governing philosophy or a constructive vision for our country,” Nunes said, adding, “The Democrats assembled us today to analyze the shoddy political hit piece known as the Mueller report.”

Nunes is right. The Mueller/Weissmann report is a dirty political hit piece against President Trump full of lies, smears, errors and omissions.

Nearly 200 Major Business Leaders Attacks States With Anti-Abortion Laws — BCNN1 – Black Christian News Network

In a letter posted to the New York Times, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and 180 other business leaders stated their belief that recent abortion bans are “bad for business.”

“When everyone is empowered to succeed, our companies, our communities and our economy are better for it,” the letter reads. “Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion…impairs our ability to build diverse and inclusive workforce pipelines, recruit top talent across the states, and protect the well-being of all the people who keep our businesses thriving day in and day out.

“The future of gender equality hangs in the balance, putting our families, communities, businesses and the economy at risk,” it concluded.

Other businesses who signed the letter, titled “Don’t Ban Equality”, include Bloomberg L.P., Yelp, and Square. According to the Christian Post, nearly 110,000 estimated workers are employed by these companies. The letter comes in response to several states passing restrictive abortion bills in recent months, including Alabama, Missouri and Georgia. Several companies, including Disney, WarnerMedia and Netflix, have threatened to leave Georgia for its new abortion ban.

Pro-life supporters took to Twitter to respond.

“How is protecting the inherent dignity of the human person from the moment of conception ‘bad for business’?” March for Life President Jeanne Mancini said. “Perhaps the better question is what is the ‘value’ of human life to these business leaders?”

“Murdering a child in the womb isn’t, has never been, and will never be, ‘healthcare,’” Lila Rose, director of the pro-life organization Live Action. She continued to wonder if it would be “better for business” to “kill off future generations of customers.”

“It’s no secret that @jack is radically pro-abortion & suppresses pro-life content While saying they don’t censor content ‘with regards to political viewpoint,’” Rose continued.

“@Twitter has banned @LiveAction & me from all pro-life ads. Pro-abortion feeds freely run ads.”

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), submitted his opinion, as well. “170 CEOs sign letter calling abortion a ‘human right’ & condemning laws passed by democratically elected U.S. legislatures. Ironically they have no problem doing business with serial human rights violating authoritarians all over the world.”

Imprisoned Chinese Christians Memorize the Entire Bible — BCNN1 – Black Christian News Network

With Scripture passages scribbled on scraps of paper and smuggled into prison, Chinese Christians imprisoned for their faith are memorizing the entire Bible.

“…Even though they can take the paper away, they can’t take what’s hidden in your heart,” a woman who had been imprisoned said, according to the Christian Post.

On a recent trip to China, pastor Wayne Cordeiro of New Hope Christian Fellowship in Honolulu, Hawaii, held a leadership training where he learned about these Christian’s love for Scripture. Out of the 22 attendees to the training, 18 of them had been imprisoned for their faith.

If Cordeiro, an American, had been caught at the training, he would have been deported within 24 hours. But the fate would have been much worse for the attendees: three years in prison.

In a recent sermon, Cordeiro shared the depth of these Christian’s understanding of Scripture.

At the beginning of the lesson, he realized that they only had 15 Bibles for the 22 participants.

But it didn’t matter. When he asked the audience to turn to 2 Peter 1, he noticed that one lady handed her Bible to the woman next to her. Cordeiro realized that she had memorized the whole book.

“When it was done, I went over to her at a break and said, ‘You recited the whole chapter,’” he said.

Here We Go: Cartoon Network Uses ‘Powerpuff Girls’ to Celebrate LGBT Pride Month — BCNN1 – Black Christian News Network

The Cartoon Network is the latest company to celebrate LGBT Pride Month, and it’s using one of its most popular animated shows to do it.

The network’s Facebook and Twitter accounts posted a message June 2 alongside a picture of the Powerpuff Girls telling viewers, “We want to wish everyone a HAPPY PRIDE and encourage all of our LGBTQ+ fans to stand proud all year long!”

Powerpuff Girls consistently ranks as one of the most-liked shows among viewers. The social media posts showed eight characters from the show standing underneath a rainbow with the message, “Happy Pride.” The Twitter message includes the hashtags “#pride #happypride #powerpuffyourself #pridemonth #powerpuffgirls.”

Christian Post and CNS News also reported the network’s activism.

Viewers who closely follow the network’s shows likely weren’t surprised.

The former series Clarence included a character with two moms. Steven Universe, which is still on the air, showed a same-sex marriage proposal in 2018 between two characters, Ruby and Sapphire.

Cartoon Network Tells Children to ‘Stand Proud’ While Promoting LGBT Pride Month — Faithwire

The Cartoon Network, which is obviously very popular amongst children, is encouraging their viewers to celebrate Pride month alongside them in honor of LGBTQ+ fans during the month of June.

In a tweet to their followers, the network expressed “Happy Pride” to all of their LGBTQ+ fans, while encouraging them to “stand proud all year long!”

The picture tweeted alongside the message showed the “Powerpuff Girls,” and included the hashtags “#powerpuffyourself,” “#pridemonth” and “#powerfuffgirls.”

It does not come as a surprise that the network would both celebrate and promote June, which is designated Pride Month as they have made it clear they have an LGBTQ+ agenda in the past.

While Cartoon Network calls itself “the best in original, acquired and classic entertainment for youth and families,” some families and parents are finding it offensive that a network is pushing their views on their viewership.

LGBTQ+ agenda on Cartoon Network

The fact that Cartoon Network is celebrating pride month should not come as a surprise.

Last year, two female characters, Sapphire and Ruby got engaged on Cartoon Network’s show “Steven Universe,” making it the first children’s show to feature a same-sex engagement.

On a separate occasion last year, the show “Adventure Time” featured two female characters kissing on the lips. It had been rumored for years that the two were lesbians, and the series finale episode confirmed that.

While the network provides show material that promotes the LGBTQ+ agenda, they have also created a Steven Universe “made of love” collection to celebrate pride month.

Some of the listings include: “Steven Universe LGBT-pride pins”, a “Steven Universe” rainbow-themed “made of love” patch and even a “Steven Universe” “kissing tote bag.”

The website also sells “Steven Universe” tote bags, shirts, and a throw pillow that have two female characters kissing on them.

“Love is in the air! This multicolored pillow celebrates the Ruby and Sapphire on their wedding day,” the listing reads. “Double sided, this pillow features the happy couple at the altar on both sides.”
