The Power of Worship

The Power of Worship

Do you know what to do when your inner accuser blames you for this or that? Do you know how to show the door to the devil? Do you know how to deal with doubts or inconveniences? Just worship.

Embracing Epic Grace

Embracing Epic Grace

There’s never too much grace. I love grace and I breath grace. It’s what sustains me and keeps me going. We should never take God’s grace granted and get too used to it. That’s why we need reminders of God’s abundant and amazing grace along the way. That’s why I was thrilled by the title of Kurt Bubna‘s book Epic Grace. Isn’t that true? Grace is not just amazing; it is truly epic. I’ve been waiting to get my hands…

The Last Word

The Last Word

Do you always want to have the last word in arguments? Why is it so difficult to not to be the one who knows best? Why does it seem to be so harmful to be weak and lowly? Probably because we think it is about us. Because we think we could solve the problems, that we should have power. But it is not about us. And we can’t solve the problems. And we don’t have anything lasting. If we don’t…

Spiritually Shortsighted?

Spiritually Shortsighted?

Spiritual blindness seems quite an extreme idea. Somehow we are quick to toss away that idea. If we know God, we are not spiritually blind, right? Not so fast. Look again. This is not an either/or matter. We are not either spiritually blind or have a 20/20 vision. We can also be spiritually shortsighted. What to do then? How can we ensure that we are not spiritually shortsighted? First of all we need to remember that it’s not about us…

Feeling Small or Living Large?

Feeling Small or Living Large?

Are you feeling small or fenced in? Maybe your perspective is off kilter. When we are focused on ourselves, our lives gets smaller and smaller.

(Proverbs 11:24, MSG) And when we focus our eyes on God, our lives are getting even more spacious. In the Hebrew language…
