Grace Is God’s Power for Us

Grace Is God’s Power for Us

Are you struggling with life? Or are you at the end of your rope? I have good news for you. First of all, you are loved. And, second of all, God wants to help you. I know, it is a bit astonishing. But God did not send Jesus to save you and then leave you to manage on your own. The Holy Spirit is here to help us out. We just need to ask for help. This is not an…

Walking in Freedom

Walking in Freedom

Today I want to share a quote about the difference being set free and walking in freedom. It reminds us that even being saved is not all God has for us. He wants us also keep on walking in freedom and live in light and love. Because he has provided everything for us to do so. Even walking in freedom is not to be done on our own power but in his strength and by his grace. This is Christian…

Little Is Much when Jesus Is in It

Little Is Much when Jesus Is in It

Sometimes we frown on our lives because they are too plain or small to our liking. Like big and bold would somehow be the only acceptable way to live. I disagree. One’s rowdiness, or even successfulness, does not necessarily produce a meaningful life. And the amount of attention you get does not tell the value of your life. Because your value comes from the Lord, not from the size of your following or popularity. The world might differ but little is…

Grace from Start to Finish

Grace from Start to Finish

Sometimes we forget how big of a gift and privilege grace really is. We easily take it granted because it was given freely to us. And we forget how amazing it is that God – who is holy and almighty – does everything to make it possible for sinners to come to him. It’s grace from start to finish. It’s his idea and it’s his power that makes it happen. But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave…

Strong in Christ

Strong in Christ

It is quite a faith journey to learn to celebrate your weaknesses. Celebrating is not our first response to our weaknesses. But that’s what the saints who have gone before us have taught us. First, the apostle Paul and then many others. Watchman Nee summed it up this way “Outside of Christ, I am weak; in Christ, I am strong.” We truly are weak in ourselves but so strong in Christ. Hence, we don’t need to hide our weaknesses but…

A Call to Pray with Jesus

A Call to Pray with Jesus

Jesus asked his disciples to pray with him at Gethsemane, yet they slept. Just the same way, Jesus is asking us to pray with him too. How do we respond? Do we sleepwalk through our life? Or do we obey and pray with Jesus? Because we have a call to pray with Jesus. And that’s a high calling. Then he [Jesus] said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch…

Faith Makes Miracles

Faith Makes Miracles

I saw this DaySpring eCard on my Facebook feed this morning. It has a quote by Tony Evans stating “Faith doesn’t make sense. It makes miracles.” What a beautiful thought. It gives us permission to relax in God’s grace. Faith doesn’t have to make sense. It is not of this world. But what really matters: faith makes miracles. Faith makes miracles It sounds a bit outrageous first, don’t you think? How could we produce miracles? Well, we can’t but God…

Faith and the Power of God

Faith and the Power of God

As I was doing a Biblegateway search for verses that include both faith and power, I found out today that the Amplified Bible explains faith as “trust and confidence in the power of God”. That’s what it is, isn’t it? If we don’t trust God and the power of God, our faith is more of a theory than a way of life. If we truly believe, we put our whole lives on the hands of Jesus. Because we trust God…

Ready for a Risk of Faith?

Ready for a Risk of Faith?

What would it take for you to take a risk of faith? What would it take to get you out of your comfort zone and into an adventure of faith? These are the questions that have been running through my head as I’ve been reading the fourth diary in Mary DeMuth‘s and Frank Viola‘s brand new book The Day I Met Jesus: The reavealing diaries of five women in the gospels. The fourth diary is of a woman with a…

Not By Might Nor By Power

Not By Might Nor By Power

Are your plans big enough or are you depending on your strength? Too often we make our plans according to our own capabilities and forget about God’s power. But D.L. Moody has said ‘If God is your partner, make your plans big’. It is hard to trust God so much that without him we’d be lost. It is hard to depend on God so completely that without him we’d be nothing. Because that scares us. What will happen if we…
