On Daily Faith, we have an encouraging word to share with you from the heart of God! No matter what situation you may be facing, know that God is bigger, and He is fighting this battle for you. Your name is written on the palm of God's hand, and He is making a way where there seems to be no way! Today, our guest is Pastor Gary Brothers, and he shares insightful principles on practicing what we preach in the word of God. Pastor Gary Brothers is the Senior Pastor of Cape First Church in Cape Girardeau, Mo. It’s easy to go around speaking the word of God to others, but if we do not implement what we say, it becomes void. Our actions and reactions to situations end up speaking louder than our words. Pastor Gary would like to help you understand these principles and the ease of applying them in your daily faith walk. The key in using these steps involve some self-reflection, forgiving yourself, and getting your heart right with the Lord. Since our lives on Earth are but a vapor, it’s time that we take every opportunity by stepping out in faith, forgiveness with humility, asking the Lord to guard minds as we pursue peace practicing what we preach. As you go about your day, remember that our attitude determines our altitude in the Kingdom of God.
Moldova is one of the poorest countries in Eastern Europe and has one of the highest death rates due to alcohol abuse. This terrible combination creates orphans where many of the children are sent away to live in an orphanage due to their parents' lack of love and support. When they graduate from the orphanage by turning sixteen, they are forced on the streets without a place to call home, leaving them subject to the real risks of human trafficking. The Orphans Hands ministry has helped save and rescue these unwanted children from a life of poverty and abuse. We have a village of homes called Vatra Village and a house in Ukraine where we take in and care for these children—reminding them of God’s plan for their lives. Our kids are growing in forgiveness, faith, and humility as they discover their identity in Jesus. No longer are they orphans, but sons and daughters unto Christ. They understand the power of practicing what they preach by helping to meet the needs of others.
