The 40 Day, 40 Night Challenge - Day 19

Believing.

Today’s Reading:

John 4:43-54

Question:

There is so much disbelief in the world today, we have forgotten what it’s like to believe in something bigger than ourselves. Do you still believe?

Application:

Today, search the word belief. Ask yourself these questions:

1. What does it mean?

2. Am I lacking?

3. How do I change my unbelief?

Then have some quiet time and talk with God asking Him to help you with your unbelief.

MLK Pledge - #4:

Pray daily to be used by God in order that all men might be free.

Quotes:

“The will of God is always a bigger thing than we bargain for, but we must believe that whatever it involves, it is good, acceptable and perfect.” - Jim Elliot

“Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.” - C. S. Lewis

Here are some of YOUR responses from Day 18: Mercy.

I'm glad that you can get my husband to do the 40 days 40 nights challenge (not that I completely know what it is about), but I can't even get him to do marriage worksheets to work on relationships issues, goals, etc.

Mercy compliments compassion and forgiveness. Rather than being judgmental, which I think is human nature, we should show mercy. We are commanded by the Lord to administer true and sound justice, and to show mercy and compassion to each other. As with the other aspects of this 40 day/40 night challenge, showing mercy is not the easy path. That's why it's called a challenge. It's certainly difficult for me. I must put it into daily practice. The innumerable rewards are worth the struggle.

Susan Best

What is Mercy? The first word is Forgiveness; to forgive when we are "justified" to seek justice or punishment. Mercy happens when we refuse to stay hurt or angry and seek to understand, give a second chance and support a deeper more peaceful heart.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
