Faith Talks with Emily Preston

By Emily Preston
Have you ever wondered HOW to walk by faith?
God, by His grace, has given us everything we need to live the life He wants for us - a life of health, prosperity, and wholeness in every part of life. But it's not enough to simply have head knowledge about what He's given us, there is responsibility on our part - we must access it by FAITH. We must be "doers" of the Word, and not hearers only.
Learn how to practically apply what the Word teaches us about grace and faith and start seeing the manifestation of the goodness of God in your life!

072 - Praying Effectively For Others - Lynette Richards with Patsy Cameneti
Do you have unsaved loved ones that you want to see receive salvation? Or maybe they’re in bondage to addictions, mental heath issues, or sinful lifestyle?  There is a way you can pray to see those people’s lives turned around and transformed by the power of God! Recently, my mother Lynette Richards was interviewed by our pastor Patsy Cameneti at Rhema Family Church in Brisbane. My mother is a powerful and committed prayer who knows her authority over the devil. By praying the prayer of authority for unsaved family members she has seen her whole family come to the Lord. In addition to this, mum’s passion and ministry is to partner with people in prayer and pray with them for issues they are experiencing in their lives, such as relationship issues, children with diagnoses, and emotional problems. Through consistent, effective prayer, mum has seen amazing breakthroughs and results in her own family and in the lives of the people she partners with. Be empowered and encouraged that there is nothing that is impossible for those who know their authority and refuse to back off on their stand of faith! Be blessed as you listen to Patsy Cameneti and Lynette Richards speak on Praying Effectively for Other People at Rhema Family Church, Brisbane.

071 - Remember Your Position! Part 5
Part 5 God has given us powerful spiritual weapons - not to GET victory over the enemy, but to MAINTAIN our position of victory over the enemy and everything that’s from him.  These weapons are all as powerful as the other and the enemy has to retreat at every single one of them.  Join me for the conclusion of this series as we continue to learn about who we are in Christ and everything that's already ours through the finished works of Jesus!

070 - Remember Your Position! Part 4
Part 4 God has given us powerful spiritual weapons to MAINTAIN our position of victory over the circumstances, symptoms, or any contrary "voice" that would try to talk us out of our position. All of these weapons are as powerful as the other when we use them the right way - that is, that we are not using them trying to "get" victory over the enemy, we are using them to ENFORCE our victory. This week we go through the Word to learn more about the weapons God has given us, and why they are so powerful.  When we know who we are in Christ and our position seated with Him, we will never let anything talk us out of that position ever again!
30:01

069 - Remember Your Position! Part 3
Part 3 The key to remembering and maintaining our position in Christ is to become FULLY PERSUADED of our position. When we are fully persuaded of who we are and what we have been given through God's grace, we won't let anything or anyone talk us out of it. Join me this week as we go through the Word to find out how to become fully persuaded of your position! We will also begin to look at the mighty spiritual weapons God has given us to maintain our position.

068 - Remember Your Position! Part 2
Here’s some interesting facts about kings: The title of “King” is an inherited position - it’s not earned or worked for, it’s a position that is bestowed on someone by birthright. It is a King’s responsibility to protect and defend the kingdom A King is expected to engage in offensive war against the enemies of the kingdom when the kingdom’s safety and peace is compromised A King has been granted divine power to carry out these tasks All of the the resources of the kingdom are at the King’s disposal to rule effectively. A King is still the King whether he’s in the throne room, lying in bed, walking in the garden, or going shopping. A King is still the King even if he doesn’t FEEL like he’s king that day A King knows he’s King, not because of his physical location, what he’s wearing or doing, but because it’s his WHO HE IS. Everything in his kingdom has to come under his rule and authority because of the POSITION HE HOLDS. In Romans 5:17 tells us that we are to "reign in life" which literally means as KINGS! In today's episode we go through the Word to find out more about this amazing position God has appointed us to, and how to REMEMBER and MAINTAIN our position!

067 - Remember Your Position! Part 1
Have any of these questions ever crossed your mind? Have I confessed the Word enough to get healed? Should I speak to the mountain once then ignore it, or should I speak to it several times? If I do that am I still in faith? Have I done too much binding and not enough loosing, or not enough binding and too much loosing? Should I just be praising God for my answer now, or should I still be speaking to the problem? Am I saying/doing everything right? And the result is frustration and confusion and eventually, we are tempted to give up fighting the fight of faith because it’s all too confusing and hard. Sometimes we can get so caught up in what we are or aren’t doing right in our walk of faith, that we forget that victory over our circumstances isn’t a formula, it’s a position! We have to REMEMBER OUR POSITION! We are not the sick fighting FOR healing, we are already the healed using the spiritual weapons God has given us to MAINTAIN our position of victory over the symptoms that are trying to talk us out of our healing. Listen as we go through the Word to learn what and where our position is, how we become fully persuaded of our position, and discuss all the spiritual weapons God has given us to MAINTAIN our position!

066 - No More U-Turns: How To Hear God And Be Led By The Spirit Part 6
Part 6 In the final episode of this series, we go through the Word to find out HOW...how do we train ourselves to recognise and respond to the voice of God and allow ourselves to be led by the Spirit? God had made it very simple for us - all we have to do is what the Word tells us to do! When we are led by the spirit we don't have to have any more u-turns, setbacks or delays. We will make the right decisions the first time, every time!

065 - No More U-Turns: How To Hear God And Be Led By The Spirit Part 5
Part 5 In the last four episodes we've learned all about how God speak to us and leads us by His Spirit, but what are the BENEFITS of this?  In this week's episode we talk about some of the real-life situations and scenarios where we will benefit enormously from allowing ourselves to hear from God and be led by the Spirit. Why? Because God wants us to win all the time, every time!  He ALWAYS leads us into triumph when we let Him show us HOW! (2 Corinthians 2:14)
29:03

064 - No More U-Turns: How To Hear God And Be Led By The Spirit Part 4
Part 4 Have you ever missed doing what you knew the Holy Spirit wanted you to do? How can we be be certain that we're hearing from God and not simply being influenced by our own thoughts and ideas? In this week's episode we go through the Word to find out what to do when we realise we've missed God and what we can do to enable God to turn Plan A back into Plan A! We will also learn how to tell the difference between the voice of God and our own voice, and know for certain that we're truly being led by the Spirit and not our own ideas and opinions. Hearing God and being led by the Spirit isn't difficult - it's all about tuning into the right frequency!
30:16

063 - No More U-Turns: How To Hear God And Be Led By The Spirit Part 3
Part 3 We were created with the ability to hear God! God tells us that His sheep DO hear his voice and DO know Him and DO follow Him. In fact, we can become so familiar with the voice of the Good Shepherd that we will recognise every other voice as a stranger's voice and we will RUN from it! (John 10:5) In this week's episode we continue to learn about the different ways God speaks to us and some VERY important things to keep in mind when we are needing to hear from God and be led by the Spirit.

062 - No More U-Turns: How To Hear God And Be Led By The Spirit Part 2
Part 2 God is not withholding anything from us!  All of the wisdom, insight, understanding, knowledge, ideas, and solutions we could ever need for any situation in our lives has already been made available to us, but we have to learn how to RECEIVE it.  Just like a radio station - God is always transmitting to us, but just like a radio set, we have to have the right receiver and learn how to tune into the correct frequency to hear Him clearly, otherwise all we will hear is white noise and static. In this week's episode we go through the Word to find out where God speaks to us, and the different ways He leads and directs us.

061 - No More U-Turns: How To Hear God And Be Led By The Spirit Part 1
We are all faced with choices on a daily basis; not only in matters that affect us on a personal level but also in the moral, social, and cultural issues where the line between what’s right and wrong, what’s good and what’s evil is becoming more and more blurred. And that’s why, more than ever, we need to hear from God and be led by the Spirit. God promises us that the Spirit of Truth will guide us into ALL truth (John 16:13). We can trust the Holy Spirit to direct and guide us in every detail of our lives, from the simple day to day decisions, to being able to confidently discern the difference between what is TRUTH and what is a lie. When we are led by the Spirit, we won’t have to make any more U-turns. Our decisions and choices will be in perfect alignment with God’s plan for our lives. We will always be in the right place, at the right time, doing the right things, with the right people. That's GOOD NEWS!

060 - How To Pray (the right way!) For Revival Part 2
Part 2 - How to pray for a move of the Spirit Acts 2:16-18 tells us that these are the last days in which the Holy Spirit has been poured out on ALL flesh. The Holy Spirit has already been poured out, and He's never left! So to pray and ask God to please pour out His Spirit, for the Spirit to please move, or for God to touch our hearts by His spirit is sincere, but unfortunately it's the wrong way to pray. The good news is, that there IS a way to pray that will result in a greater move of the Spirit in the earth and greater demonstration of His power that's never been seen before! And it's important that we learn to pray this way. Join me for the final part of this 2-part series and learn how to pray fervent, EFFECTIVE prayers that make tremendous power available! (James 5:16)
31:47
July 27, 2020
059 - How To Pray (the right way) For Revival Part 1
Part 1 There are two prayers God can’t (not won’t - can’t!) answer:  Prayers asking Him to do something He’s already done, Prayers asking Him to do something He’s told us to do.    Many prayers prayed for revival are prayed like this: “Oh Lord, save the nations! Pour out your spirit! Send revival! Touch people’s hearts! Fill us with your presence!”   They sound nice and sincere, but they’re actually ineffective prayers that God can’t answer.   Why?  Because God has ALREADY provided salvation for all men - they just have to receive it. (Hebrews 10:14) He had ALREADY poured out His spirit on the earth and the Spirit has never left! (Acts 2:16-18) The SAME POWER that raised Jesus from the dead is ALREADY in us - He can’t send more power/fill us/touch us any more than He has! (Romans 8:11)   So what is the RIGHT way to pray for revival and an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in these last days?   Join me as we go through the Word to find out how to pray in line with the Word and the finished works of Jesus!   When the church begins to pray fervently and EFFECTIVELY for revival, amazing things will take place!

058 - How To Cast Your Care Part 3
Part 3 If God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble, and the humble person is the person that casts all their care onto the Lord, then it’s important that we find out exactly HOW to cast our care! In the final part of this series, we discuss how to cast our cares onto the Lord and how to unload and roll them over onto Him so that He can carry the weight of it - or do the caring - for us. When we do what God tells us to do and cast our cares, we are humbling ourselves under the mighty hand of God. God promises that there is grace for the humble, and God will exalt you in due time!
33:57
June 17, 2020
057 - How To Cast Your Care Part 2
Part 2 Ever notice how young kids are always happy? They don't worry about how they're going to pay their school fees, where their next meal is coming from, or who's going to buy them their clothes. Why? Because they know mother and father will sort it all out for them. Our Heavenly Father wants to carry our care! He is the expert financier, health guru, relationship advisor...and He's got the wisdom, advice and counsel we need - if we are willing to give our care to Him and let Him sort our problems out for us. In this week's episode, we talk about some more of the sources of care.  We will learn to identify areas of our lives where you may be carrying care, so that we can then learn how to cast it.
38:44
June 9, 2020
056 - How To Cast Your Care Part 1
When we're faced with a problem, a very important questions we must ask ourselves is, "Am I being proud about this or humble?" 1 Peter 5:5-7 tells us that God RESISTS the proud, but gives GRACE to the humble. The proud person says, "I've got this. I'll try everything I can think of first. I can carry this care." And they get resisted. The humble person says, "I don't "got" this. I can't carry this care. Lord, I humble myself and cast all my care onto you." And then what happens? God can get grace to - and exalt - the humble! In this series, we go to the Word to find out WHAT care is, WHY God tells us to cast it, and most importantly, HOW to cast it.

055 - Things Obey Words Part 4
"We have what we say" is a spiritual law. (Proverbs 18:21, Mark 11:23) This law works 100% of the time when we use our words for moving mountains and calling things that be not into being, but it also works 100% of the time when we use our words to complain, criticise, judge, curse, speak negatively, and talk about the problem. We are either attracting life or death to our lives through our words. But Good News! In His great grace and love toward us, God has given us a precise and detailed Instruction Manual (the Word of God) in which He shows us both how to use this spiritual law to our advantage and enrich our lives, and also how to avoid using our mouth as a magnet for death, disaster, and destruction. Listen to this week's episode to learn more!

054 - Things Obey Words Part 3
How many times should I speak to the mountain? What does it mean to "doubt not in my heart"? Do my words really have the power to change my situation? Join me for Part 3 of "Things Obey Words" to find out what the Bible has to say in answer to these common questions and be empowered with revelation from God's Word!

SPECIAL - The Faith Response To Coronavirus
Coronavirus has grabbed the attention of the entire planet and the world is reeling in chaos and fear. This situation didn't take God by surprise. From the foundations of the world He knew the crises the world would face and He has ALREADY provided a way of escape! Today I want to encourage you with what God says about Coronavirus and what we, as believers, should be doing about it.  John 16:33 - "In the world you will have tribulation but TAKE COURAGE! I have overcome the world!"
30:20

053 - Things Obey Words Part 2
Do you know that science is only just now proving things that the Bible has said for millennia? Things obey words! At it's most subatomic level, everything in existence is made of microscopic particles called "quarks". A quark is the foundational structure of all matter - or everything that is seen. Quarks are not stationary, they are constantly vibrating. Even solid matter like a table is constantly moving and vibrating. When applied, ENERGY changes the vibration of the quarks that make up a matter. The energy produced by a microwave acts on the quarks that make up food, causing their vibration to speed up. This produces heat, and the result is heated food. A refrigerator's cold air slows down the vibration of food's subatomic particles which causes it to last longer or even freeze. WORDS are energy, and word-energy changes the subatomic vibration of matter. That's why Jesus told us to SPEAK TO the mountain and to SPEAK TO the sycamore tree (Mark 11:23, Luke 17:6) and they would obey us. The mountain and tree represent any obstacle, hindrance or problem we may face. Jesus promises us that when we speak TO the obstacle, hindrance or problem, that is WOULD obey us. Why? Because our energy-filled words are working on that thing at its subatomic level and the "matter" has to respond to the energy we are applying to it.  Isn't that GOOD NEWS?! It doesn't matter how small you think your faith might be - even if you think it's only as big as a mustard seed - start speaking TO your problem! Whether it's emotional, financial, relational, or physical, tell it what it has to do and know that it HAS to obey you! Jesus (and science!) say so!
31:21
March 17, 2020
052 - Things Obey Words Part 1
In the beginning, God was there, the darkness was there, and the Spirit was there, but nothing happened until God SAID, Light BE and light was. God created the whole universe by issuing commands and expecting them to be carried out. God created us to operate and function the same way - to release faith-filled words out of our mouth into our circumstances and expect them to be carried out. Things obey words. Our bodies obey words. Finances obey words. Emotions obey words. Destructive weather and viruses obey words. Every single thing in this earth was designed to obey words. Words contain creative power and destructive power, restoring power or reversing power, the power to change things and the power to rearrange things - but they have to be spoken in order for that power to be released - and the power is in your mouth. Join me for the beginning of this new series about the power of our words and how to release that power for good!

051 - You ARE Involved In Politics! The Believers' Responsibility To Pray For Their Nation Part 4
Part 4 In the conclusion to this series, we continue to discuss HOW to pray effectively for our nation using the Word of God, our authority, and the name of Jesus.  Just like Joshua and the children of Israel when they walked around the walls of Jericho - God had told them He had given them the city, but they had to do what He had instructed them to do. For seven days they circled the city and would have seen zero indication that things were changing. They wouldn't have seen any crumbles, felt any tremors, or heard any creaks and groans, yet they persevered and on the seventh day the walls fell flat. God has instructed believers - first of all! - to pray for their nation (1 Timothy 2:1). We may see no visible signs that anything in our nation is changing in the natural, however if we will continue to pray the fervent, effective prayer, we WILL see results because God tells us that our prayers have tremendous impact! Let's not let the things going on in our nation upset or anger us, instead let's pray for kings and all in authority and the effect of our prayers will be far-reaching, history-shaping, and eternal!
42:58

050 - You ARE Involved In Politics! The Believers' Responsibility To Pray For Their Nation Part 3
Part 3 Did you know that there is a wrong way and a right way to pray? In today's episode we begin to discuss HOW to effectively pray over the different areas of our nation.  God has given us authority in this earth and part of the church's responsibility is to set things right that aren't right using our authority, the Word of God, the power of the Holy Spirit, and the name of Jesus.  It doesn't matter how grim things appear to be, if we will begin operating from our position of authority and taking responsibility for the affairs of our nation, we CAN make a difference! The fervent, effective prayer of the righteous man can accomplish much! (James 5:16)
36:01
January 29, 2020
049 - You ARE Involved In Politics! The Believers' Responsibility To Pray For Their Nation Part 2
Part 2 In today's episode, we continue to learn why it is so vitally important that believers pray for their nation.  Instead of being frustrated, angry, or offended at the things that are going on in our country, or thinking that things are too far gone and that there is no point trying to make a difference, we can take the battle to where the true fight is happening - the supernatural.  God has instructed us - the church - to pray for our nation because prayer is the most powerful and effective way we can get involved in politics - and we don't even have to leave our house to do it! Be encouraged and inspired to get involved in the affairs of your nation God's way and using God's methods.  Whether we like it or not, we ARE involved in politics!
35:46
January 12, 2020
048 - You ARE Involved In Politics! The Believers' Responsibility To Pray For Their Nation
Are you concerned about what’s going on in your nation?  Whether it’s politically, socially, environmentally, or in any other area of your society, we have not only been given the power but also the responsibility to change what’s going in our nation. One of Paul's most emphatic instructions to the church was to PRAY for all men, for kings and all in authority. (1 Timothy 2:1) Why? Because the way our nation is governed affects us. It affects our families, our finances, our freedom to worship, and every other areas of our lives. In this new series we discuss why it's so vitally important that we believers pray for our nation, and how to pray effectively using the tools God has given us and our authority as believers. Whether we like it or not, we ARE involved in politics!

047 - What Does It Mean To Trust God? Part 3
Part 3 In the conclusion of this series, we continue our discussion on how we can know if we are truly trusting God, and learn practical steps for how to develop our trust in God. "I trust God"  will no longer simply be a cliché but your trust in God will be seen by your words and actions!
28:38
November 11, 2019
046 - What Does It Mean To Trust God? Part 2
Part 2 How can we know if we are truly trusting God? In today's episode we discuss what it means to "lean not on our own understanding" and "acknowledge Him in all our ways" You will learn practical truths from God's Word and how to apply them so that instead of the phrase, "I'm trusting God" simply being a religious cliché, you will be able to demonstrate through your actions that you truly trust in the Lord. And you will be being a DOER of the Word!
24:43
November 4, 2019
045 - What Does It Mean To Trust God? Part 1
"Oh, I'm just trusting God."  It's a phrase commonly heard in Christian circles. But what does it mean to trust God? Are there practical steps we must take to demonstrate that we trust God?  Join me for Part 1 of this series where we discuss what it means to trust God, and how we can be sure that we are trusting God, and practical steps we can take to ensure that we are trusting God.

044 - You Are The Boss Of The Devil: The Believer's Authority Part 6
Part 6 In the conclusion of this series, we continue to discuss the different areas where we can exercise our authority.  We have been given authority over ALL the power of the enemy, so that NOTHING, by any means, can harm us.  If it's stealing, killing, or destroying  it's from the enemy and you don't have to tolerate it. We hold the same position of authority as Jesus. God has given us His name, the Word of God, and the Holy Spirit, and told us how to use them so that we can exercise dominion in this earth.  
45:27
September 26, 2019
043 - You Are The Boss Of The Devil: The Believer's Authority Part 5
Part 5 God has given us dominion over ALL the earth (Genesis 1:26), and He's also given us authority over ALL the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19), so where and when can we exercise our authority? In this week's episode, we look at how we become fully persuaded of our authority, as well as the different areas that we can exercise dominion using the tools that God has given us. We can exercise our authority over our health, finances, emotions, children, in praying for other people, praying for our nation, and many other areas. Once we receive revelation of our authority, we will never tolerate anything stealing, killing, or destroying from us or anything that affects us ever again!
32:27
September 18, 2019
042 - You Are The Boss Of The Devil: The Believer's Authority Part 4
Part 4 How do we exercise authority? By praying the right way, by binding (prohibiting) and loosing (allowing), by speaking TO the mountain, and by using the name of Jesus and the Word of God. All this is accomplished through our WORDS. In Part 4 of this series, we continue learning HOW we exercise authority, and the tools God has given us to walk in the dominion He intended for us from the beginning!
31:56
September 15, 2019
041 - You Are The Boss Of The Devil: The Believer's Authority Part 3
Part 3 "A believer who is fully conscious of the divine power that is backing him up, and therefore of his own authority will face anything that is from the enemy without fear or hesitation." John A. MacMillan - The Authority of the Believer So far we've learned WHY God's given us authority and WHEN we were given authority, now in this episode we begin discussing HOW we exercise our authority. What are the tools God has given us to maintain our position of authority over the enemy and anything that is trying to steal, kill, or destroy from us? Once we learn about who we are, what we have, and how to use what we have, we can begin walking in the dominion and authority God intends for us to walk in!
37:12
September 6, 2019
040 - You Are The Boss Of The Devil: The Believer's Authority Part 2
Jesus is the head of the church and we are His body but the head cannot do anything independently of the body. The head is constantly sending instructions to the body, but unless the body is operating and functioning as God intended it, things won't get done. God needs us! God is able to do exceedingly abundantly far above all that we can ask or think...BUT it's according to the power that works in us! (Ephesians 3:20) God has supplied the power, but it works through us - we have to plug in and flip the switch. In this episode we discuss WHEN we were given authority over the enemy and hear examples of people who knew and exercised their authority. Receive a revelation of your authority and start walking in it - and you won't put up with anything that is from the enemy for one split second!
34:30
August 29, 2019
039 - You Are The Boss Of The Devil: The Believer's Authority Part 1
The devil has been defeated, but he's still on the loose. He still roams as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. He still comes to steal, kill, and destroy from people who don't know he's defeated and who don't know their authority. As believers, we have been given authority over ALL of the power and ability of the devil so that nothing, by any means, can harm us, but we have to renew our minds to who we are and what we have been given so that we can operate in the full extent of our authority. In this series, you will learn why you have been given authority, when you were given authority, how to exercise your authority, and who/what you have authority over. You will learn practical examples of how to exercise authority in your health, finances, emotions, relationships, and in your nation. Once you receive a revelation of your authority you will never tolerate anything from the enemy in your own life, the lives of those you care about, or the place you live, ever again! "A believer who is fully conscious of the divine power that is backing him up, and therefore of his own authority will face anything that is from the enemy without fear or hesitation." - John A. MacMillan (The Authority of the Believer)

038 - What To Do When You're In A Trial Part 3
Everything that we need to bring forth our harvest is already in the ground of our heart. We don’t have to know how it the Word works, but just know that it works. Our job is simply to keep sowing and watering the Word. God is for us. He wants us to win more than we want to win and He’s given us EVERYTHING we need to win. But we have to fight the "good fight of faith". It’s called the good fight because we already know the outcome if we don’t give up, cave in, or quit. We have to get aggressive with our faith. We have to decide to be tenacious, aggressive, persistent, determined, and bold.  We have to bite down on the Word like a bulldog bites down on a bone and refuse to let go of our confession of faith until we see the manifestation of what we are declaring that Word for. We bite down on it until patience (endurance) has had it’s perfect work, then we WILL be perfect, complete, lacking in nothing! Join me for the final part of What To Do When You're In A Trial for HOW to employ patience and endurance.

037 - What To Do When You're In A Trial Part 2
Satan comes to steal the Word. The enemy will use discouragement, disappointment, and negative changes in circumstances to try and convince you that the Word isn't working.

032 - Darren Saxton's Testimony: Healed of Chronic Back Pain & Relationship With Children Restored
Darren Saxton had been living with chronic back pain for 20 years after a serious car accident. Darren's teenage children had also been separated and estranged from him for 12 years after he and his wife were divorced.  After listening to the Faith Talks podcasts and receiving a copy of Confessions for Life which contains scriptural declarations which he could speak over his children, Darren received revelation of the truth that would make him free. He realised that he did not have to tolerate back pain any longer, and that he could speak the Word over his children and see reconciliation and restoration of their relationship. Darren is now completely healed and free of any back pain, has been reconciled to his children, and is continuing to see manifestation of God's grace in every area of his life as a result of being a doer of the Word. Listen to his testimony and be encouraged and blessed!

031 - Is God REALLY In Control? Part 3
PART 3 "God is in control!" It's a catchphrase of Christianity that has become a religious cliché and is often used to explain away tragedy, disaster, death, and other negative events.  But is God really in control? Is He really responsible for all the hurricanes, earthquakes, terror attacks, people dying, corrupt governments, and other assaults on mankind? Or if He isn't responsible for them, why does He allow, or permit them to happen? Or if He doesn't permit things to happen, why doesn't He stop them from happening?  And what about Job? And what about Paul's thorn in the flesh?  What does the Bible say about all of this? In this three-part series, we go on a journey through the Word of God and find the answers to each of these questions.
