Prayer to Know God’s Will

Prayer to Know God’s Will

Do you ever wonder what God wants you to do? We might think God’s will must be something complicated so that’s why we don’t even try. That’s sad, isn’t it? Because then we miss our purpose as well. For a long time, I’ve been trying to figure out the simplest way to know God’s will for me. And, yes, it’s prayer, of course. But what kind of prayer, right? Let’s find out. And then, just the other day, I came…

Why Do We Need God’s Face to Shine on Us?

Why Do We Need God’s Face to Shine on Us?

It’s been exactly two weeks since our family landed in Ethiopia. It’s been a fantastic experience so far. People are friendly and the coffee is strong, so what’s not to like? Well, the rainy season is a bit tiresome but it will pass. Other than that there’s only one thing that has been tough. You see, there are beggars wherever you go, they even knock on car windows when the traffic slows down. The easiest way to deal with this…

God Is Ready to Bless Us

God Is Ready to Bless Us

Summer is here. I love it. And I need it. Or, more accurately, I need time for rest and restoration. How about you? Are you exhausted too? Thankfully, the month of July can be a month for renewal. God is ready to bless us the way we need to be blessed. And those blessings may surprise us in a very good way. May those who delight in my vindication    shout for joy and gladness;may they always say, “The Lord be exalted,    who delights in the well-being…

The Spirit Living within You

The Spirit Living within You

Do you underestimate God’s Holy Spirit? I think we all do to some extent. Otherwise, we’d be much more excited about this Comforter, Defender, Energizer, and Loyal Friend of ours who lives within us. Pentecost is a wonderful time to examine our relationship with the Spirit of Holiness. Do we let her close enough to spiritually stretch us and get us out of our comfort zone? If we want to grow in faith, we need to give the Spirit of…

How to Receive Grace

How to Receive Grace

Do you feel that God’s grace is not for you? That somehow you don’t qualify to receive it? The only way you don’t qualify is that you’re absolutely sinless and hence don’t need it. But there is not a person alive who is sinless. And Jesus pre-approved you personally on the cross. You’re all set to receive grace upon grace. God’s readiness to give and forgive is now public. Salvation’s available for everyone! (Titus 2:11, MSG) Okay, so God’s grace is…

Be and Live Like Love

Be and Live Like Love

Valentine’s Day is approaching, so there is a lot of talk of love these days. That’s fine but so often we forget the most important love of all. So I enjoyed Bob Goff’s tweet the other day “Jesus didn’t tell us to become religious. He told us to be like Him, and He was love.” What a relief we don’t need to be religious. Instead, we are told to be like God, and he is love. So we need to…

God Is the Source of All Worth Having

God Is the Source of All Worth Having

Do you know why people are turning their backs to God? I have a hard time figuring this out. You see, to me, God is alive and powerful. I am constantly in awe of how he moves in our lives, how he loves us. For me, God is the source of all worth having. Hence he is the last thing I would let go of. Faith is a gift from God and it is offered to everyone. But God does…

The Spirit of Peace

The Spirit of Peace

How are you? I hope you’re doing well or, at least, you’re experiencing God’s peace. You know, it’s possible to experience peace even in the midst of the ugliest strifes. I know it’s hard to believe but once you’ve experienced God’s peace in the midst of chaos you know what I mean. God’s peace is ours if we want it. Because it’s not dependent on our outer circumstances. The Spirit of Peace is ours to be received no matter what….

The Bible Is Alive and It Speaks to Me

The Bible Is Alive and It Speaks to Me

“The Bible is alive, it speaks to me”, Martin Luther said. That’s also my experience and that’s why I am hooked on reading it. Otherwise, I’d be lost. God is amazing, he does not abandon us. He cares for us and wants us to know it. Reading the Bible is a wonderful way to be reminded of these facts. At least I do need to hear it anew every morning. How about you? As soon as I pray, you answer…
