Fellowship with God

Fellowship with God

This post started in the most peculiar way. In a dream, I was writing a post using a quote by Andrew Murray. So this morning I decided I needed to check out his writings again. And I fell in love with this quote about the gloriousness of fellowship with God. “The giver is more than the gift; God is more than the blessing. And our being kept waiting on Him is the only way for our learning to find our…

The Safest Place in the World

The Safest Place in the World

What is your favorite place in the whole wide world? Maybe a place where you are safe and secure and feel loved as you are? I hope you have such a place. But if not, know that you are more than welcome into Jesus’ arms. It’s not only the best place but also the safest place in the world. How come? Because it’s a place where we find rest, peace, and grace upon grace. And as Warren Wiersbe has said,…

God Gives Hope upon Hope

God Gives Hope upon Hope

When we are low, we don’t need lectures. There’s no need to point out the obvious. Instead, we need help and, especially, hope. And that’s what God provides us no matter how badly we have messed up. With God, there’s always hope. And then some. God gives hope upon hope. We can’t say the same about our enemy. Because his goal is to kill and destroy. When we’ve messed up, our enemy is more than happy to tell us just…

Seek More of God

Seek More of God

This Lenten season is a wonderful opportunity to see if we’re putting something else than God into the first place in our lives. What does take up the most of your time? Or what occupies your mind most? It’s so easy to get distracted and start caring more of Netflix or hobbies than God Almighty. Sometimes we need to do less in order to see what’s important and what’s not. When we do less, we can seek more of God….

Dimensions of God’s Love

Dimensions of God’s Love

Our God is quite a multi-dimensional God. And each of his dimensions has its own sub-dimensions. God is always more than we can even imagine. But his core being is Love and that’s why it is safe for us to lean on him. I’ve always loved the prayer found in the third chapter of Apostle Paul’s letter to Ephesians. It talks about the dimensions of God’s love. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through…

Searching for Significance

Searching for Significance

Have you been searching for significance all your life and have still not found it? Let’s remedy that right now. You see, the problem might be that you’ve been searching for significance in the wrong places. You might seek recognition by doing everything you can think of – and then some – yet you never get it. Don’t get me wrong, you might be a world-known scientist or an all-star athlete, yet you might still be searching for significance. Because…

Uncomplicated Faith

Uncomplicated Faith

Sometimes I think we make our lives way too complicated. We don’t intend to do so but, anyhow, we do. The same goes to faith. It’s meant to be a joy and strength for our journey. And we make it a chore to do. How did we end here when God created us for his pleasure to enjoy him and the life he gives. How could we uncomplicate things? Are you ready for uncomplicated faith? Okay. How do we do…

Just Ask God

Just Ask God

Is it hard for you to ask for advice? Do you rather wander aimlessly around than humble yourself and ask for help? Why is it so hard to admit that we are lost? It must be pride. We want to pretend at all cost that we know what we are doing. But the sooner we admit we are clueless, the sooner we are en route in the right direction. This is also true in our spiritual life. We don’t need…

Wait in Peace

Wait in Peace

Waiting for a dream come true is very hard. Especially without trying to manipulate the outcome. We would like to force God’s hand to bless us and bless us now. But that’s not how blessings work. That might even be a recipe for a disaster. How then could we wait in peace? John Ortberg has said, “What God does in us while we wait is as important as what we are waiting for”. If we truly understand this, we might…

Confidence in Grace

Confidence in Grace

Being confident is something we all would like to be, right? Then there’d be no room for hesitancy or doubt, those invisible enemies of our happiness. But confidence in ourselves is a house build on sand. Only the house built on God will survive. Hence we don’t need to be confident in our own abilities. Confidence in grace suffices. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in…
