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….

Everything Is a Gift from God

Everything Is a Gift from God

It is the month of November so every good blogger is to write a post on gratitude, right? Maybe that’s true but I am not writing this post because I should do it. I am writing this post because I wholeheartedly have come to believe everything is a gift from God. Truly. I did think so before but now I also know it in my heart. Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God…

Your God Is Coming

Your God Is Coming

Are you anxious, panic-stricken, or fearful? I have good news for you. Even though it might look like it, God’s promises have not changed. You are safe in his arms, he loves you and has great plans for you and all his people. Behold, your God is coming. Say to those with fearful hearts,    “Be strong, and do not fear,for your God is coming to destroy your enemies.    He is coming to save you.”(Isaiah 35:4, NLT) You can persevere because of God’s…

How Not to Waste Your Life

How Not to Waste Your Life

Nobody wants to waste his or her life, don’t you think? We all know life is precious because it is so short and fragile. So we are to embrace it and make every moment count, right? If you ask different people how not to waste your life, you get varied answers depending on their values. How would you answer? I would probably have said something along the lines of Jesus “If you try to hang on to your life, you…

Obey God Even When You Do Not Like It

Obey God Even When You Do Not Like It

Do you obey God only when you agree with him? Or do you obey God without questioning? There’s a huge difference between these two attitudes. The other leads to trouble and the other leads to life. How do I know that? The Bible tells us so. You are called to obey God even when you do not like it. Then they said to Jeremiah, “May the Lord your God be a faithful witness against us if we refuse to obey whatever he…

Jesus Is Our Moment-by-Moment Sustainer

Jesus Is Our Moment-by-Moment Sustainer

Our God is an awesome God. For real. I just experienced it myself this morning. I was a bit out of sorts as I started my morning devotions. But God picked me up by showing me he is the God of miracles as I read about Jesus feeding the crowds with two fish and five loaves of bread (Mark 6:30-44). The Holy Spirit whispered to me that God will be also my moment-by-moment sustainer. And just like that, I was…

How to Be Always Hopeful

How to Be Always Hopeful

Sometimes I am accused of being too joyful and hope-filled. But come on! Is there such a thing as being too hopeful? Not in my book because my hope is in Christ and there is not such a thing as having too much Christ. You see, my joy or hope is not based on circumstances, wishful thinking, or denial of pain. My hope is based on God and his Word telling me God will have the last word and not…

Holiness Is Christ in You

Holiness Is Christ in You

As I am preparing to teach Christian Ethics starting next week, I have been thinking of holiness a lot. We are called to be holy like our God is holy, right? It is a tall order for human beings but there is no way around it. No one is excused from pursuing perfect holiness. The Bible clearly tells us to be holy over and over. My life experience tells me it’s undoable on my own. I need help. Thankfully, God…

Find Yourself in Jesus

If you feel you’ve lost yourself or your identity, don’t worry. God’s got your back. You can find all that you’ve lost in Jesus. Yes. You can find your lost life or soul in Jesus. It’s all safe in Jesus. Even if you’ve lost yourself, God will not lose you. So, all you need to do is to turn around and go to Jesus. You can find yourself in Jesus. He is before all things, and in him all things hold…

How to Hold Faith as Our Rock

How to Hold Faith as Our Rock

Do you remember the story of the wise and foolish builders? I’ve always marveled at how beautifully and simply Jesus described the importance of faith as our rock. But somehow I’ve forfeited the fact that just agreeing with Jesus does not make us wise. “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 47 As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. 48 They are…
