Mail from God

Mail from God

Would you like to receive mail from God? I would love that. A fax every morning? Or few text messages during the day? A snail mail letter once a week? An email at the end of the day? Wouldn’t that be something? Unfortunately, that’s not how it works. But we do get mail from God. There’s nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Every part of Scripture is…

God Collects Special Things

God Collects Special Things

Do you collect something? I collect angels and cobalt blue glass. Usually we collect something that is precious to us. I love angels and feel that cobalt blue is the colour of my soul. Do you know that God collects some things too? They must be something really precious, right? You keep track of all my sorrows.     You have collected all my tears in your bottle.     You have recorded each one in your book. My enemies will retreat when I call…

Encouraging Words

Encouraging Words

It’s not a secret that I love reading the Bible. There are many reasons of course. One of them is the surprise factor. You see, the Bible is the Living Word of God and when we read it prayerfully, the Holy Spirit surprises us time after time. The boring parts becomes precious, old things get new meanings and historical things becomes personal. Encouraging words for sure. Try it yourself. Keep at it regularly. And your life is not the same…

The Ultimate Healer

The Ultimate Healer

Have you been hurt badly? Or is sorrow your constant companion? Is your heart so broken that you doubt if it can ever be whole again? I hear you. I’ve been there, done that. But I have good words for you. And they are not “time heals. “Ann Voskamp has said “Time never heals wounds like God does.” God is the ultimate healer. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds [curing their pains and their sorrows]. (Psalm 147:3, AMP,*) I…

Eternally Changeless God

Eternally Changeless God

Such human qualities as absent mindness or forgetfulness do not apply to God. Neither is he getting tired or weakening or ageing. God is on his top form as much today as he was when he created the world. Our God is an eternally changeless God. Hallelujah! Who has done this and carried it through,     calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the Lord—with the first of them     and with the last—I am he. (Isaiah 41:4, NIV) Also Jesus…

Take Heart

Take Heart

Cheer up. Take heart. Be encouraged. Do not be afraid. Rest assured. These are the ways Jesus’ words for a paralyzed man have been translated. These words are also for you feeling paralyzed at this moment. Whatever it is that feels overwhelming is not a match to Jesus. So cheer up. Take heart. Be encouraged. Do not be afraid. Rest assured. God is your help. Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw…

The Joy of Creation

The Joy of Creation

Do you like putting puzzles together? I do. A couple weeks ago we finished a puzzle of 2000 pieces. And this past weekend we put 1000 pieces together. Puzzles are symbolic to life. We don’t know the big picture but all the pieces will eventually form a beautiful picture. No matter how odd pieces we see along the way. Perseverance is the key to puzzles and life as well. But that’s not what I want to share with you today….

God Is Our Protector

God Is Our Protector

One of my all time favourite psalms is 91. I was especially in love with this psalm as a teenager when I was taking my first steps out in the world on my own. It felt good to know God is my protector. Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High     will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of theLord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,     my God, in whom I trust.” (Psalm 91:1-2,…

Nothing Left for You to Worry About

Nothing Left for You to Worry About

There is one verse in the Bible that erases worries powerfully. It is not probably what you think. But it is powerful nonetheless. It reminds us who is in control and whose we are. And if we do remember that, there’s no reason to worry, right? Your eyes saw my unformed body;     all the days ordained for me were written in your book     before one of them came to be. (Psalm 139:16, NIV, emphasis added) The whole psalm139 is a…

Make the Lord Your Safe Haven

Make the Lord Your Safe Haven

Do you have a safe haven? We all need one. I know the best there is: God Almighty. You are invited there too. God does not only provide a shelter in the midst of storms but a continual renewal place for all who desire to be his. How great is the goodness     you have stored up for those who fear you. You lavish it on those who come to you for protection,     blessing them before the watching world. You hide…
