Nothing But God

Nothing But God

God is everything and he offers everything for us. Are we ready to fully embrace God and his promises like David Livingstone stating “Without Christ, not one step; with Him, anywhere!” Because God’s love should make us bold. Nothing can separate us from God. Not even death. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the…

Out of the Great Love

Out of the Great Love

Do you ever wonder why God has created the world and you particularly? Why did God go to great lengths to ensure you’d have a way out of your sins? Simply out of the great love of his. We can understand loving lovable persons. But God loved us out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were unlovable and dead because of our sins. That is amazing. That is so out of our radar. But…

Everlasting God

Everlasting God

Wouldn’t it be horrible if God was changeable? We could not know what was required of us each week. Or it’d be horrifying to realize God is so out of date that nothing would be relevant. But we have nothing to fear, that’s not the case. Our everlasting God is the same yesterday, today and forever. For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations. (Psalm 100:5, AMP,*) We can rest…

Close to God in Prayer

Close to God in Prayer

How does it feel listening to someone praying for you? Isn’t it delightful and utterly precious? It is a huge blessing. Like Charles Finney has said “Nothing tends more to cement the hearts of Christians than praying together. Never do they love one another so well as when they witness the outpouring of each others’ hearts in prayer.” Exactly. We can get a glimpse into people’s hearts while praying. People don’t lie before the Lord. Hence when others earnestly pray…

Rooted in Christ

Rooted in Christ

Simone Weil has said “To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul.” Being rooted is indeed one of our basic needs. Only when we are rooted we can grow. And when we are rooted in Christ, we can live forever.  [Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the Lord, and whose hope and confidence the Lord is. For he shall be like a tree planted by the…

Stay Out of the Ditches

Stay Out of the Ditches

Are you on the way to heaven? How is your journey going? Do you get stuck in the mud a lot? Are you able to stay out of the ditches? You know, this is critically important. For every mile of the road to heaven, there are two miles of ditches. Lots of opportunities to get off the road to heaven. How can we get it right? How can we keep on advancing on the Christian pilgrimage? First of all, we…

Living from the Perspective of Eternity

Living from the Perspective of Eternity

Lately I’ve been trying to do each day at least one thing that will make me happy the next day. This has had an impact on my life. This has helped me to do things that I truly value. Try it yourself, it will be bless you. But I also want to challenge you a bit further. This world is no all there is. What if we did each day at least something that will make us happy in eternity?…

From Desert to Oasis

From Desert to Oasis

Are you dreaming of carefree existence? Are you hoping to have a life filled with peace, trust, and quiet strength? Would you like to be safe, confident and fully alive? Don’t we all? Just too often our life resembles more a desert than an oasis though. Life without God is like living in a desert. When we are living in a desert the elements of a good life are limited. But when we allow the Spirit of God rain on…

Citizens of Heaven

Citizens of Heaven

Are you a citizen of heaven? How does it affect your everyday affairs? Or does it? Maybe it should. Because if Christ is in you, everything changes. But if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christfrom the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit that dwells…

How to Bless the Lord

How to Bless the Lord

Have you ever wondered what it means to bless the Lord? Many, many times in the Psalms we are told to bless the Lord. What are we supposed to do? The Amplified Bible gives us an eye-opening answer: Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name! Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits. (Psalm 103:1-2, AMP, emphasis added,*)…
