Memory Traces of God?

Memory Traces of God?

Do you have engrams, memory traces, of God? Has God touched you in such a way that there’s been a physical alteration in your living neural system? I hope so. Just like the men who fought along Saul: Along with him went courageous men whose hearts God had touched. (1 Sam. 10:26, CEB) When we have been touched by God, we are marked by God for good. When we have experienced God’s love and grace, our brains will always carry…

Watch Your Spiritual Diet!

Watch Your Spiritual Diet!

Too often people are satisfied with spiritual comfort food. Or even worse: junk food. But as we know, we don’t stay healthy that way. Junk food of comfort food may give us great experiences for our taste buds or give us an illusion of being well fed but we stay -in long run- malnourished. Then we don’t even crave for real food anymore. There will come a time when people will not tolerate sound teaching. They will collect teachers who…

Weekend Prayer Wall {Mar. 17-18}

Weekend Prayer Wall {Mar. 17-18}

“Each time, before you intercede, be quiet first, and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people. Think of your place and privilege in Christ, and expect great things!” ~Andrew Murray “Beware in your prayers, above everything else, of limiting God, not only by unbelief, but by fancying that you know what He can do. Expect unexpected things ‘above all that we ask or think.’”…

Faith Makes Life Worth Living

Faith Makes Life Worth Living

Too often we just let life happen and we wander without thinking, even without praying. But then we are in danger to get where the flow takes us and not where we want to go. We need to put our faith in action. Because faith is not a sentiment, it is a call for action. We need to start our days by praying for guidance, for wisdom, for direction, for strength. Tommy Barnett explains “I’ve discovered it is not sufficient…

Fearless Faith

Fearless Faith

Fear can be paralyzing. Fear is, at least, crippling if it dominates our life. If we act out of fear, we most often make wrong choices. Fear is forced upon us by the enemy. Freedom is offered to us by Jesus. Fear or freedom? I choose freedom. I choose fearless faith in Jesus that brings freedom. Fearless faith is utmost confidence in God. Does it exist? Is it fact or fiction? Faith is always a gift that we need to…

How to Be Readier for Jesus?

How to Be Readier for Jesus?

Did you know that there are more biblical prophecies on the second coming of Christ than prophecies on the first coming? The central theme in Christianity is to wait for the second coming of Jesus Christ to complete his saving work. Come, Lord Jesus! Therefore, stay alert! You don’t know what day the Lord is coming. But you understand that if the head of the house knew at what time the thief would come, he would keep alert and wouldn’t…

Do You Edit God?

Do You Edit God?

Many of us claim that we want to do God’s will in our lives. We aim to listen to God’s voice and seek his guidance. But do we really hear God? Do we put his wisdom in practice? Do we let God’s message transform us? Or do we edit God? Do we select what we hear? Or do we embrace God as he is? Or do we strip down God from attributes that disturb us? Do we dishonor God by…

The Art of Waiting on God

The Art of Waiting on God

I don’t hold a master’s degree in waiting on God, nor in patience. But I am praying that I’d be slowly molded into an artist of waiting on God. Biblical waiting means confident expectation, trusting that God will do what he has promised. That God knows best both what needs to happen and when it needs to happen. That God will be preparing us while we are waiting. That God works for the good who believe in him. There are…

Weekend Prayer Wall {Mar. 10-11}

We must learn to measure ourselves, not by our knowledge about God, not by our gifts and responsibilities in the church, but by how we pray and what goes on in our hearts. Many of us, I suspect, have no idea how impoverished we are at this level. Let us ask the Lord to show us.~ J.I. Packer Prayer is no fitful, short-lived thing. It is no voice crying unheard and unheeded in the silence. It is a voice which…

The Throne of Your Heart

The Throne of Your Heart

Most of us can’t imagine that we’d ever reject God. But the sad truth is many of us is doing it without realizing it. When we insist living our way we are already rejecting God by our actions. The Israelites rejected God by asking for a king. The LORD answered Samuel, “Comply with the people’s request—everything they ask of you—because they haven’t rejected you. No, they’ve rejected me as king over them. They are doing to you only what they’ve…
