Seed Thoughts


//Lynette Hagin

Have you ever experienced discouragement? I am sure that all of us would say, “Most assuredly yes—many times.” The days in which we live have certainly intensified the opportunity to become discouraged.

Discouragement will steal your joy, peace, and contentment. It will cause you to begin to fall into despair, self-pity, and depression. Sometimes discouragement can be so strong that you don’t even want to go on living.


Getting to Know God

God has given us everything we need to live successful, godly lives. In His Word, He has given us many promises. But how do we take advantage of them? How do we move into His greater plans for us? To live victoriously, we must know the Father. It is the most important thing we need to do. Peter tells us something about this.





How God Taught Me About Prosperity

I left my last pastorate in 1949 and went out in field ministry, going from church to church holding revivals. After I’d been out on the field a solid year, from February 1949 to January 1950, my records showed I’d earned $1,200 less than my church had paid me for the previous 12 months.

Plus, the church had furnished our parsonage, which was the best we’d ever lived in. They also paid the utilities and all of my expenses to conventions. And they were always buying clothing and other gifts for my wife and me.


Are You ‘Strung’?

We are anointed to preach the Gospel—to tell people that Jesus has come! He has redeemed mankind. In fact, Hebrews chapter 7 says that He has redeemed us completely. He saved us to the uttermost. Anything that was broken, He fixed. Anything that was distorted, He straightened. Anything that was fractured, He completely remade. Hallelujah! Jesus created a brand-new species of in-Christ people, and every area of our lives is planted in His death, burial, and resurrection—in His first coming.


Interceding for Our Nation

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.” —1 Timothy 2:1–2

We are instructed to pray “for kings, and for all that are in authority.” Have you ever wondered why God would want us to pray for kings? When studying
history, we very seldom find a king who was saved. Someone may ask, “Do you mean God would bless those leaders even though they weren’t Christians?”
Emphatically, yes! When we pray for those in aut hority, we are promised “a quiet and peaceable life.”
