Resting in Grace

Resting in Grace

Summer is time for rest. It’s time to pause, get your mind off your work and worries. The need for rest is in our DNA. We need to rest every night and we need a vacation every year. But there is even deeper rest within our reach. Resting in grace brings us real rest. What is that and why is it so special? First of all, grace brings peace to us. When we’ve confessed our sins, we receive grace upon…

God’s Promises Will Carry You Home

God’s Promises Will Carry You Home

God’s promises are so many and various that you can be absolutely sure they will never run out and they cover all your needs. Always and forevermore . You can base your life on God’s promises. They will carry you home. Your promise revives me;    it comforts me in all my troubles.(Psalm 119:50; NLT,*) As R.C. Sproul has said, “faith involves trusting in the future promises of God and waiting for their fulfillment”. So let’s put our trust in God and…

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,…

How to Reach Your Full Potential

How to Reach Your Full Potential

Most people seem to think it’s up to them to reach their full potential. They think it’s about will-power and dedication and, yes, those are good qualities. Yet life, success, and reaching your full potential is not at the end about you. And even if you would do everything in your power to reach your full potential, you would still have not reached all you can be. Because just as some parts of our identity is hidden in Christ, so…

Rely on God, Not on Yourself

Rely on God, Not on Yourself

We are told from very early on to be independent and self-reliant, preferably efficient and successful. That’s what’s expected of us, right? Then comes Christianity and tells us the opposite: depend on God, not on yourself. This can be really confusing and it can be hard to go against the grain. But the Bible does not mean you would not take care of yourself. Instead, it urges us to rely on God, not on ourselves or other people or money…

Discarding My Own Glory

Discarding My Own Glory

Many of you know that I’ve been tweeting Christian quotes for almost a decade now. So I don’t come across a new quote every day, especially older ones. But a couple of days ago I found this Jean (John) Calvin quote that felt, first of all, new to me and, second of all, touching. Somehow, Jean Calvin summed up Christian faith only in few well-selected words, which is remarkable of course. But mostly I was in awe of its ability…

Faith Is Surrender

Faith Is Surrender

The core element of faith is surrender. Some people don’t think so but Jesus told his disciples that all who want to come after him must say no to themselves, take up their cross, and follow him. That is what faith is all about: surrender. And not just once but daily. Because there’s always something new to surrender. As A.W. Tozer has said, “Faith, as Paul saw it, was a living, flaming thing leading to surrender and obedience to the commandments of Christ.”…

Let God Do the Talking

Let God Do the Talking

I realized it’s been years since I’ve written anything on silence or solitude in my blog. How about you? Are you a fan of silence? Is silence something we are not too eager to be reminded of? We even might read about it but implementing it into our lives is not on our top priority list. Yet it should. It does bring blessings to our lives because in silence we meet our God. Silence is also the key to spiritual growth….

Spend Time in God’s Presence

Spend Time in God’s Presence

Do you have a lot of questions about life and faith? Are they keeping you away from God or are they bringing you closer to him? Don’t fight your questions, give them to God. He will answer them when you’re ready. Meanwhile, embrace your questions, live them and praise God in advance for answering you when the time is right. Instead of worrying about the answers, use your time more usefully: spend time in God’s presence. That’s from where all…

Testing and Trials – Our Spiritual Refining Process

Testing and Trials – Our Spiritual Refining Process

How do you feel about spiritual testing? Are you tired of trials? I hear you. But, believe me, there’s more to testing and trials than we might think. There’re hidden blessings involved, you know. Each trial has a purpose Warren Wiersbe has said “Life’s trials are not easy. But in God’s will, each has a purpose. Often He uses them to enlarge you.” This already make me feel better of tests and trials. Each trial has a purpose. God has…
