Getting to Know God

Getting to Know God

Getting to know God takes a lifetime. But the journey is wonderful. How to go about it? By knocking, asking, and seeking. They are ways to get to know God. How do we then knock, ask, and seek? Let’s find out. The important thing to know is that we all do fail in our pursuit of God once in a while. But the secret is persistence. When we consistently keep on knocking (entering into the presence of God), seeking (cultivating…

Weekend Prayer Wall {Apr. 28-29}

Beware in your prayer, above everything, of limiting God, not only by unbelief, but by fancying that you know what he can do. ~Andrew Murray The faith exercised in prayer is faith in the God who sovereignly accomplishes His will. When we pray, our faith recognizes, explicitly or implicitly, the overruling providential purposes of God. We may at times be given insight into that will, enabling us to pray with absolute confidence in God’s plan to answer as we ask….

Fresh Hope for Hopeless

Fresh Hope for Hopeless

Are you feeling down? Is your soul singing unexpected blues? Are you weary, burned-out, at the end of your rope? Don’t worry. There are loads of fresh hope reserved just for you. You might not believe it right now. But bare with me. Do you remember how Jesus, in his sermon on the mount, calls people happy or blessed who are hopeless? Why on earth would he do that? Read it yourself: “Happy are people who are hopeless, because the…

Reset Your Spiritual Compass

Reset Your Spiritual Compass

Our lives gets so crazy-buzy that if we are not 100% certain where our True North is we get lost in the jungles of life. We don’t mean to get lost but it just happens if we don’t reset our spiritual compass daily. This is not a matter to take lightly. Our well-being, and even our future, depends on what we choose. Today. “So now, revere the Lord. Serve him honestly and faithfully. Put aside the gods that your ancestors…

Awakening to the Resurrection Reality

Awakening to the Resurrection Reality

I do admit it right away: The resurrection of Jesus Christ sounds crazy. It’s absolutely foolish for our rational minds. It is hard to fathom that God the Father raised God the Son from the dead. But God the Spirit awakens us to believe. Christ died for our sins in line with the scriptures, he was buried, and he rose on the third day in line with the scriptures. (1 Cor. 15:3-4, CEB) The same way that salvation is God’s…

Practicing Patience, Cultivating Endurance

Practicing Patience, Cultivating Endurance

Our pilgrimage to God is a marathon. Hence it’s not about speed but about endurance. It’s as much about taking care of our faith along the way as learning to praise God in the midst of anything and everything. Our marathon will be finished the same way it was started: By taking steps of faith in hope. We were saved in hope. If we see what we hope for, that isn’t hope. Who hopes for what they already see? But…

Daily Grace

Daily Grace

Grace is an amazing gift from God. We can’t save ourselves or make us worthy of God. But God. He arranged everything so that we can just receive his grace by faith in Jesus and be made right with him. Grace truly is God’s unmerited favor for all who are ready to receive it. You are saved by God’s grace because of your faith. This salvation is God’s gift. It’s not something you possessed. It’s not something you did that…

Weekend Prayer Wall {Apr. 21-22}

Prayer wonderfully clears the vision; steadies the nerves; defines duty; stiffens the purpose; sweetens and strengthens the spirit. ~S.D. Gordon The great thing in prayer is to feel that we are putting our supplications into the bosom of omnipotent love.~Andrew Murray If I had cherished evil in my heart,     my Lord would not have listened. But God definitely listened.     He heard the sound of my prayer. Bless God! He didn’t reject my prayer;     he didn’t withhold his faithful love from…

Give It to Jesus!

Give It to Jesus!

What do you do when you doubt? What do you do when you are overwhelmed? What do you do when a disaster strikes? What do you do when the future is unclear? What do you do when God feels distant? Your response is critical for your spiritual well-being. Your response defines your future. How come? You let the distress bring you to God, not drive you from him. The result was all gain, no loss. Distress that drives us to God…

Jesus – Connecting God and Humans

Jesus – Connecting God and Humans

People try to fill the emptiness they feel inside with so many different things without succeeding. One way to avoid feeling emptiness is to stay extremely busy and connected with the world all the time. Hence they don’t have time to ponder why they are so restless and unhappy. But if you don’t take time to sit still, you can’t really hear God. And like Augustinus has said it so well “God, you have made us for yourself, and our…
