Clothe Yourself with Strength

Clothe Yourself with Strength

Do you live as a child of God? Or do you still insist on passing on God’s gifts to you? This might sound funny, but we often refuse God’s blessings because we either think we don’t deserve them or don’t dare to receive them because others might be jealous of them. Crazy, right? Who are we to refuse anything God wants to give to us? God knows best so we should say “yes, please” to anything he suggests for us….

God Is Still at Work

God Is Still at Work

Sometimes, when the storms of life get scarier or the world around us gets darker, we might think God has forgotten us. We might think God is not in control anymore. But I have good news for you, God is still at work. He is as mighty as ever and plans to see you through whatever you’re facing or whatever is going to happen in this world. How do I know this? The Bible tells us so. Say to those…

Called into Fellowship with Jesus

Called into Fellowship with Jesus

One of the things we forget or take for granted is that we are called into fellowship with Jesus. God is not done with us when we are saved. He invites us into an intimate relationship with Jesus. That’s an ongoing thing like any other relationship. And not just on Sundays. God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Cor. 1:9, NIV) We are to live our whole lives in Jesus. We need…

Faith Is a Fulfilling Way of Life

Faith Is a Fulfilling Way of Life

Very often I am asked how to live faith out in everyday life. It’s a great question, don’t you think? If you do know how to live faith out, faith is not just great theology, it’s a fulfilling way of life. And that’s what we all want, right? I’ve always thought the answer to this question is somewhat hard to explain but then I read from Ephesians how Paul explains it in two verses: In conclusion, be strong in the…

Accepting God’s Will

Accepting God’s Will

Is it easy for you to accept God’s will for you? I think we all struggle with it from time to time. Even Jesus prayed hard at Gethsemane. But he knew better than insist to have his own way. So maybe also we should learn to see accepting God’s will as the ultimate best for us even when we want the very opposite. “Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want…

You Are Chosen by God

You Are Chosen by God

Do you feel you’ve forgotten, that nobody will choose you? Know that those thoughts are all lies. Do not believe what others might be whispering or how you feel in this matter. Instead, trust the Bible telling you truly are worthy of God’s love. Mary DeMuth exposes ten lies and shares ten truths in her latest book Stop Living Small: Ten Truths Toward Your Significant Life. This post will tackle the seventh lie which is “You deserve to be overlooked” by…

Passionate Pursuit of God

Passionate Pursuit of God

This morning I was reminded of a connection between the Old Testament and New Testament. You see, we are told to seek God as we would for a hidden treasure. This is not just some casual browsing, don’t you agree? This is an intentional and passionate pursuit of God like our life would depend on it. And it does, especially when looking from the eternal perspective, doesn’t it? My son, if you will receive my wordsAnd treasure my commandments within…

Go with The Spirit of Boldness

Go with The Spirit of Boldness

It’s already the end of January yet I have not achieved much this year. Of course, the pandemic keeps shutting everything down and it keeps us close to home. But I don’t think that’s what hinders us. It’s our bland visions and lack of boldness instead. Thankfully we can be inspired by the example of Paul: For I fully expect and hope that I will never be ashamed, but that I will continue to be bold for Christ, as I…

A Deeper Connection with God

A Deeper Connection with God

Lately, I’ve been reading about Moses. He was an imperfect man (like we all are) yet what a life and what a journey he had. And what a faith! I would like to have that kind of connection with God, you know. That’s why I am continually hoping and praying for a deeper connection with God. Do you know it is possible for each of us because Jesus cleared the way back to God? Today I read (Exodus 4) about…

The Process of Becoming a Person of Faith

The Process of Becoming a Person of Faith

I find it a huge blessing to know perfection is not required for Christians. Martin Luther has said, “A Christian is never in a state of completion but always in a process of becoming”. We are in the process of becoming a person of faith. God is at work in us. We are becoming what God created us to be. Unfortunately, we are able to hinder the process through our decision making. If we always choose things based on convenience,…
